"For the rain and shine,
And all those that were once mine,
I hold on hope,
With faith in time,
Whatever was once mine will be mine!
Hope is what I hold on deep,
In my tears, they lie asleep.
My heart, my naked skin,
I bear the shards of pity within.
I wave my shining star,
Hoping to reach beyond and far.
With hope I'll swim,
In spirits of faith,
My journey doesn't ensure my win,
But it sure makes me a part of it.
In all this its good see smiles
Of all those who have none
Pity burns deep in,
A smile wears easy on the skin."
It is these lines of my poem that inspired me to make to an illustration for the Design for Kashmir initiative.
Its a beautiful initiative curated by extremely talented people, and if there's any curious soul who's eager to know more, log on to their face book page "Design for Kashmir"
"Lets swim on to the currents of life."
Wish you all smiles.
