CELEBRATING ONE YEAR OF CAPTURED

Today, 26th June 2018 marks the first anniversary of Captured and I couldn’t be more proud. I made this blog with just one goal in mind, to inspire others. And along the way, I have inspired quite a few. CAPTURED BY DIYA wouldn’t have been possible without all the tremendous support I have received. I would like to thank everyone who encouraged me in this journey of mine. I have made a significant amount of progress and hopefully, this will continue.

Changing Times, Shifting Vibes

Radio volume going high,

Staring at those fireflies.

Rock bands were a vibe,

Partying all night being hype.

Then the tables turned,

The past was memories burned.

Staring at the six inch world,

Scrolling past everything curled.

Heads hung low,

Verbal communication let go.

Technology polluted,

Humanity left wounded.

That 90’s vibe flew away,

Now they are echos of grey.

Sparks of Creativity☯️

The stars in favour,
Darkness caused terror.
Fear and desire,
To be afraid or to admire?
Stuck between dimensions,
Surrounded by all the tension.
Avoiding but craving,
Circumstances unnerving.
Reached out but holding back,
All the fear, you were bound to crack.
Emotions overwhelmed,
Insanity compelled.
Simple yet complex,
Head spinning with wreck.

KEY TO SUCCESS

  FLIP THE SWITCH, FROM COMFORT TO SUCCESS

Lazing around on your bed all day? Or doing the same old 9 to 5 job for months or even years? If yes, then let me tell you this. You have entered and made yourself at home in your comfort zone. It’s time to flip the switch. It’s time to get up, get out of your house and do something different. I’m pretty sure that at one point of your life, you imagined yourself walking down the red carpet, being super famous and successful. Is that, still a dream of yours? Or have you managed to turn your dreams into a reality? I’m not going to lie, it will take hard work, it will take perseverance, it will take time, but in the end, its all worth it. Your very first step is rather easy, trying out new things. Such as, painting, growing a plant, dancing or anything that interests you. Try it out for a couple days, don’t like it? Then try something new. Keep doing this until you find the one thing you are passionate about or the one thing you see yourself doing in the future. Remember, patience is key. Work more towards it and see how you can improve in your hobby. At first, there will be a boost of motivation inside you, and as time passes by, it may start fading away. You may feel like giving up, everyone does at some point. Just don’t lose hope and keep going. Now, what you need to do is figure out a way to transform your passion into your job. You need to think; how can you make the world a better place with your hobby? Maybe your interest is gardening. You can most certainly make your environment better by planting. Maybe you want to be a poet. You can share the gift of your creativity, you can express yourself in words that leave the rest in awe. I know that this is a tough and time-consuming step but you can do it. It takes effort and time but you will not regret it because once you turn your passion into your job, nothing can come in your way of being successful. During this entire process, you have to keep certain things in mind. This process will not happen overnight, it takes time. Don’t give up even if others let you down. You don’t need to be like your family or your friends. You can freely be yourself. Don’t care about the people who judge you for what your passion is. Be bold and have confidence in yourself. Its time to be different. Its time to step out of your comfort zone and enter the zone of success. Its time to turn your dreams into reality.

Write your own story!

She looked everywhere, all she could see was people dressed all fancy. And then there was her. Everyone was wearing jeans and crop tops. She was there in a t-shirt and track pants. Everyone’s face was covered with a mask of makeup. She was showing her true self. Everyone was a copy of the other. They all looked the same. She was the only one different, the only one brave. Brave enough to be different from the rest. She thought to herself, “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”.

WORDS OF WISDOM

Those words of wisdom,

In this magical kingdom.

Thinking out loud,

And speak without a sound.

Words engraved on blank papers,

Thoughts sparking in millions of brains.

Like blood from your heart to your veins.

Get up from your chair,

Get out of your house,

And enter the story you read,

Enter the world you may never despair.

Meet ogres, trolls and giants,

Go fly on those magical dragons.

Let your imagination guide you,

Never let the experience undo.

For you should never forget,

Those words of wisdom,

In this magical kingdom.

 

Poetry- Art to Heart

 

Nature’s beauty so it’s called,

Each one perfectly flawed.

As it waits for the sun to rise,

Its beauty, never fails to entice thousand eyes.

They have thorns which may leave you sore,

But they also have petals which will always leave you to adore.

As the gates to heaven show the way,

The drops of colour start to decay.

They say flowers also weep,

When the leaves stoop low.

When the very branches that hold them,

Are now merely flakes.

Perfect? Imperfect? Or both? You may wonder.

They stand strong even through thunder.

Nature’s beauty so it’s called,

Each one perfectly flawed.

BE INSPIRED

CAPTURED is all about getting inspired. Bring out the artist, singer, dancer, writer or even poet hidden in you!

Here is a little poem which I wrote, I hope this brightens your mind with colourful thoughts and ideas:

The wind was a blanket of breeze,

Which settled the sand at it’s ease.

The trees cherished the rain,

And then the morning dew.

The sun so shiny with a golden hue,

It’s sparkling light hit the mighty mane.

The birds chirping softly,

The cheetah running swiftly.

The waves rolling into the land,

Bringing life to the dead sand.

The blanket of breeze left,

And the sun, now dim, started to set.

Spring Memories

 

SPRING IS WHEN FLOWERS BLOSSOM,
WITH ROOTS AT THE VERY BOTTOM.
I HANG AROUND THE VALLEY WITH MY FRIEND,
GAZING AT THE VIEW RIGHT TILL THE END.
WITH CLOUDS CLEARING OF MY MIND,
COLOURFUL BUTTERFLIES IS WHAT I FIND.
CAREFULLY WHEN I PICK UP ROSES,
THE SUNS EYE CLOSES.
WITH THE SIGHT OF THE BEAUTIFUL SKY,
MY HEART FILLS WITH LOVE AND WITH JOY.
SPRING IS SUCH A LOVELY TIME,
ISN’T IT A BEAUTIFUL RHYME!!
