Carry My Words Home

if i could know
the words to write
the things to say
the perfect way
my words will fly
to far off lands
with soft wings
and rhymes that sing

if words could fly
and begin to sing
they would enchant
the hearts of kings
oh merry, how merry
that music must be
my words that turn
into songs of glee

and if all my words
come home to you in a song
the things I want to say
shall be where they belong.

To Be Or Not To Be

which home to pick?
I'm suffering from the classic case of too many ideas. Yup, that's right. I have a million ideas going on in my head. Granted each idea deserves time and effort to make it worth. That's what I have been unable to do till now. I don't have the patience to stick with one idea and wait till it works out. I know it's bad and I hope this is just a passing phase. Ultimately, I want to settle down with something nice to do and till then, I'm giving myself the permission to act immaturely. I don't know if this is healthy or not, but that idea which I can take along with me for years has not struck me yet. I think it's just natural; getting a glimpse of different things till you find what really consumes you enough to the point of passion. 

What do you think? Till next time!

Keeping It Simple

I don't know why it's been such a long time since I've sat and wrote something that made me think. After 3 years of rigorous writing, I don't think I've still gotten over it. I guess it was tranquility that I wanted to experience. After a very emotional period that almost exhausted me and only fueled my passion for writing, I decided to experience what it was like to just sit and feel and not worry about blogging it. It felt great. It still feels great, may be that's why I am unable to get into a writing routine despite multiple efforts. 

So why come now? It's because it's been such a long time that I feel my writing skills are becoming a bit rusty. I find myself searching my mind for words when trying to pen down a thought. I also find myself trying to decide how to start off and grab my readers' attention. So, listening to my loving mother and my wonderful husband and a few very sincere friends, I think it's high time I revive my skill. 

Welcome to "Simplified Versions", and yes you can ask me why I chose that name. To be honest, I'm always at a loss when I actually have to title something and ironically, any time other than that I find my mind spilling with ideas for a title. Anyway, so I chose Simplified Versions because that is how I write, that is how I like to write. I love talking about the small and simple things in life and I love to do it in the most simple, honest way possible. I want to make this blog part of my original blog the perfect line. If you've read me there, then you know what's coming. I tried a Wordpress blog in between but it was too shiny and perfect and proper for me to actually make it work. I felt intimidated. Like I said I want to keep it simple, and Blogger's just perfect for that. That's why you see a blog with white background with no unnecessary gadgets messing up the space because it's going to be simple and clear. What do you think? I plan to import all my Wordpress posts here anyway. 

So, once more, I officially welcome you to Simplified Versions and honestly, I hope you like it while you're here. See you!
