Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day- 24 April 1915- 2015

Date:  24 April 2015

Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day-   24 April 1915- 2015
My tribute to our Armenian Friends in Glendale who shared this day with us and reliving in hope, faith and peace....They show us that no matter what, they will move on and make the best out of life

The day to pay tribute to the mass deaths
Of the Red Sunday – Garmir Giragi!
When the blood shed by Ottoman Government
On Armenian intellectuals and leaders
Constantinople and everywhere in Armenia
Leaders and the followers deported
And after constant torture assassinated
April 24, the day Commemorated
As Genocide Remembrance Day
By Armenians across the world
Systematic extermination of minority
Torments inside the historic homeland
Close to 1.5 million people killed
With no mercy, no tolerance and peace
Wholesale killing of able-bodied men
Through massacre and army conscripts
To forced labor and deportation
Of women, children, elders deprived
Of food, water and pushed to rape and death
Genocidal policy targeted by extermination
Resulting in Armenian Diaspora around the world
Acknowledged as modern genocide
With goals to eliminate Armenians
Killing within the legal parameters
Define the systematic exterminations
The Ottoman rule started the merciless acts
Reforms and voices raised from all sides
Went into deaf ears and inhumane societies
Compatriots living inside the Empire
Suffered the ideological differences
Though the common goals was the same
To achieve better social human conditions
To implement the promised reforms
False allegations of abuses exaggerated
Dealing with Armenians as they didn’t wish
Government went ahead with oppression and massacre
The fight against the regiments took to its helms
Brought the excesses to the attention of those rising
Violent breaking of the rally for reforms continued
It was the victory of the great assassin, the bloody sultan
Actions and new reforms never materialized for fruition
Due to conflicting political and economic interests
The Armenians were never in league with the enemy
Their goals and hopes were to live in harmony and peace!

 May all those wonderful souls
Rest in Peace
100 Years 
But memories will live on
will continue for ever!

Simply Move On! To Tune into Life!

Date:   23 April 2015

Simply Move On!  To Tune into Life!

Life is on the tracks that just go
Simply, we just need to move on
Whatever happens to us around!
Be it love, shock, loss or happiness
Just breathe in the reality in bliss
There can be ups and down in lifeline
 In sometime, rhythm comes back to life
This may be in a day, a week, a month
Or may even take a year or a decade
Falling back into the track is only choice
For that’s the only way to go forward 
 Times when we feel incomplete or low
As we keep searching for things lost
Being the hostage to our thoughts in mind
Yet, time as the best healer is always kind
As we live the moment, there is no mind
But as we cling on to memories of the past
Or in the anxiety of future paving for worries
Things that are happened and gone
And things that really have not happened
Mind and life can never be in sync
Pushed to deal with situations unpleasant
 As things of past and future don’t tango at all!
Acceptance is the only forever reality
It’s not capable to cause you any suffering
Mind!  Fully capable to cause the agony
Distress, fear, grief and unending suffering
Incessant reminding wallows us in grief
Yes, Life could have been all beautiful
But that is only real in all our dreams
Reality may look fearful and future looks
Blurred with clouds ready to storm
Yet, be sure, that rainbows come after rain
 Calmness prevails after every storm
Stop letting our mind working up on grief
Drumming up in fears and ready for tears
It’s time to appreciate the present life
And more ideal to actually move on!
To live life fully, stop mind leading you
  Simply flow with Life, moving on
From one moment to another
When not controlled by mind
And present in the earnest moment
We are in tune with our life
There shines the magically stars
And beauty of the flowing moments
Letting us experience bliss, sheer bliss!
No matter what, life simply goes on!
To tune into life, simply move on!
