I Stand amongst the dark night
I become a knight
I walk with the bluntly sharp sword
My Shield is love,
and only Love

The path is a little foggy
The forest denser than what I had thought of
My body is fragile
The heart though has the strength of the mighty Mountain

I live in the womb of words
I was born in a rhythm of divine poetry
I dance back and forth in verses
My skin tone is a shade of ink

Call me what you will
I will in the enclosed space create a dream
Without doors and windows
My room yet shall always remain bright

Because
I Stand amongst the dark night
I become a knight.

I become the Knight

Love, fail and Love again and fail again.

Love.
Love is the only thought running through my head from early morning and mind you it is love and not the lover.
Questions like,
Why did I fall for this guy?
What attracts me in this particular person?
Why do you I usually fight on this particular topic?
Why do I willing for guys with a particular mindset?

And all this is because I recently discovered that there is a consistent pattern in the guys I have had dated before. And therefore it was very important for me to do a certain kind of analysis to understand the pattern I created for my own destruction.

And this is what came to my Head

So the thing with every relationship or any kind of dating is that the base is to all is that first guy I had dated.

 

My trust issues, my insecurities, me being scared of commitment it all comes from the same one relationship that I had and now I have start working on those aspects of it and actually grow along with those limitations.

 

Have you analyzed what decides the longevity or failure of your relationships?

Love That is yet to Be Found!

August has come out to become a month where all I can think about is self-growth and impeccable love that one should have for self. And as my head dwelled upon the concept of self-love and growth a small poem got came dancing inside my head.

“A seed I am that fell to the ground
Let love breathe within
And let all the veins feel emotions
and dreams survive beyond the dream…

– Dharti Shethiya ”

Isn’t this what we exactly wish for others when we love them and think of their well being. So why not wish the same for self.

Work, hustle, financial growth and everything else is important but we seldom forget that none of these would be worth if you are not happy inside. Forcing yourself into something will never lead to mental stability.

So my darlings let us take a step beyond and work upon happiness and find things that help you find content within.

do something different, let’s run after happiness and inner well being and every other desire and dreams of yours will manifest itself naturally.

tell me in the comments below or write to me about what helps you be you and what is happiness to you?

You can also write to me about it at shethiyadharti@gmail.com

When Everyday Is A Restart!

Its 1st of August today and we are done with more than half of 2019 and it is now the right time to review the month and check on self and understand how far have taken our dreams and how much have we worked on self-growth and self-love.

So let’s do something together.

Let us make a list of all the things that we did year-round that we remember and feel is an important part of what you are today and how you feel at the moment. These memories or events or memories can be anything. It can be good, bad, awkward, happy, heartbreaking or even things that made you potentially angry.

when you write this beside every event mentioned write about its impact and whether it had a positive or negative impact on you. Not only this kind of self-analysis will help you understand yourself and your growth better but will also help you create a guide that will help you avoid things that break you and list out things that have nurtured you as an individual.

If you want you can create two different lists one for self and the other solely for business or work life or Education. But this at this point it is super essential as it will decide a lot about how will your future years’ functions and what exactly needs to be done.

I know its a time taking process but do not forget it an investment on self and the growth that you have been looking for.

So, ladies and gentlemen lets together hustle, grow and be our support system. Let us together create the change within our-self and around our-self so that we create a life that we have been wanting and make life grand.

you can also share it with me on my email address: shethiyadharti@gmail.com

All the best, love!

Your girl,

When You touch My Skin

And sometimes
when you touch my skin
and a wave of goosebumps
are dancing on the top of my skin

I wonder what good I did to deserve love like yours!

 

And sometimes
when you hold me tight
and the breathless heart
falls in love with the divine suffocation

I wonder what good I did to deserve love like yours!

 

And sometimes
when you look at me
and every part of my soul
feels like the most beautiful being

I wonder what good I did to deserve love like yours!

I wonder what good I did to deserve love like yours!!

 

Your Girl,
Dharti

I fear Love

Walk Into My Life
And hold my trembling fingers

Steady my shaky hands
Pamper this terrified heart, my dear

I fear love today…

 

Sit beside me today

And listen to my untold plead

Sing a lullaby to me

Let the fear in me go to sleep

I fear love today…

 

Hold my hand wantingly

And let me draw circles on your palm

Caress me in your arms

Let the spell of your breath dance

I fear love today….

Waited !

I waited for so long
that everything else seems nothing but a lie!

I have waited for your laughter and your cries
I have waited for you to be mine.

On the corridor of the empty house
I have knocked on the door at least a zillion times
On the bridge of the abandoned village
I have walked with the hope to find my knight

I have waited for your arrival and uncalled departure
I have waited for you to be mine

I waited for so long
that everything else seems nothing but a lie!

Your girl,
Dharti

Every I love You!

Every ‘I Love You’ Ever said
was a spell Casted

Every ‘I Love You’ ever said
was a smile crafted

So smile my friend
as the godliest
feeling was
a guest at
your place

Every ‘I Love You’ ever said
was like a dream come true

Every ‘I Love You’ ever said
was a heart skipping a beat

So breathe my friend
as the liveliest
person finds
home inside
you!

 

So live, my friend
So breathe, my friend
So love, my friend.

Your Girl,
Dharti

Love is Love!

I am so insanely honored and proud to be around and with the LGBTQ+ community. They are strong, courageous, beautiful, and damn do they know how to party. That being said, it was a year full of realizations as well. Realizations that there are so many in this world that can’t do what they love doing right now, for their safety. There are many who will live a life so full of fear and shame that something as simple as sexual orientation will be kept a dark and painful secret forever.

It wasn’t a shock to realize and sit with any of these things because there was a point in one’s life where a person feels he was doomed to the same fate. I feel grateful that people have started coming out and the experience isn’t equally violent as before, but some aren’t so lucky and that wrecks me.

So I guess if anyone out there reading this feels the weight of that secret or feels so terrified to embrace whatever their true self is, reach out. I’m here to talk and help in any way that I can. I’m here to tell you that you’re fierce and safe and wanted and loved and so so needed on this planet. It takes a village to live a free life, but know you’re not alone. It gets better and it gets easier, I know that in my soul.

To those who came before it was not okay to or rather was a taboo, those who spoke out, those who stood up, those who fought- thank you. Thank you for your voice, thank you for your sacrifice. Because of you, they are able to celebrate love and this collective history in an unbelievably diverse country.

Your Girl,
Dharti

PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE! 

So yesterday on my writing account I did a rant!
I guy DM’ed me about how a girl with curves is extremely exciting and it certainly brought back to me memories of all creepy DMs I have ever gotten.
From “hey, sexy” to dick pics to creepy stalkers.
While I shared my views on it, the most common response was, “ignore them”
Well, the problem is this ignorance, not raising the voice against the wrong is the biggest wrong… Please raise your voice. If you are a writer, write about it, if you have received any such DM, share the screenshot. Get the account down and if it’s too much, you can file a complaint with cyber crime branch.
PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE!

And most importantly It’s not about what is bothering me and what is not. I give zero fucks about what people think, but, I believe that our ignorance towards this behavior is somewhere giving them the power to continue. They enjoy the ignorance and so now is the high time to raise a voice.

And I request all of you to do so!

Your Girl,
Dharti
