Poem: Boundaries

There are no boundaries
No place to be held down
Head held up high
Fish swimming in the ocean
Bird flying in the sky
Never looking back
Throw away the key
The cage of life
Dimensions near and far
Finding peace again
In the open air
The cloudy sphere
That I only share,
With you.

Peace and Love,

Poem: Peace and Harmony

The invisible pain
Building up inside
The tears flowing
Boiling through
The deepest well
Will we ever be?
Known and free
Will we ever know,
peace and harmony?

 

Flowing back and forth
Two sides of a coin
Tides and flows
Moments in time
Just like the whispers,
I call out carefully
In the moonlit night

Peace and love,

Poem: Never Say Goodbye

The lump in my throat
Always there
Always hidden
Speak the truth or let it be
Can’t control nor set it free
The pain within. 

Healing powers are within
Stronger than ever before
Close your eyes and see
The forgotten tears and embrace
The child within that cried
Who never said goodbye.

Peace and Love,

Poem: Memory Lane

It’s hard to be stuck in a moment

In between memory lane

Thoughts and dreams go hand in hand

Come on in and open your heart

I just want to see the smile

One more time.

Years pass us by in an instant

We never look back and question why

Always running forward to the future

Just stop and breathe

Why the rush

We can catch up soon enough

Eventually.

Peace and Love,

The Struggles of Writing a Novel

This journey of writing my novel started way back, I believe it was almost 8 years ago when I got the idea to write a book. I started it off and a year later I changed my mind and didn’t continue with that story. It all went back and forth and I was having inspirational periods of time when I really put all my energy into it, and becoming disappointed at the process a few months later. The struggles of writing was a fact. I had always been writing poems and journaling, so that never really stopped throughout this time – but my book story was halting and was eventually paused for a few years due to lack of inspiration.

I intended to write a story that involves a lot of multicultual aspects to it, and things were by that time happening in my life that made me feel that I didn’t need to write that story anymore, until I went to India a couple of years ago. Something really hit me during that trip and everything came back to me, my desire to write my story. That is what I am doing right now. I am more determined than ever to complete it this time around. The intention is to write almost everyday, or at least sit with it every day and see what comes to me. If I ever find myself doubting or having writer’s block, I now know that I can get through it and move past it. It’s all about how much motivation and desire to write the book you have, because if you don’t have that, the book is never going to write itself.

I have made myself a little soft deadline to follow, which makes it easier for me to follow through. By the end of this year I will have a complete draft version of the entire story. I will edit it several times after that and ask very nicely to one of my dearest friends if he wants to read it, which he’s promised to do. 🙂 I just haven’t finished the book for more than 6 years. Long overdue. The idea is to try to get it published, otherwise I will self-publish it and distribute it myself. For me the importance is to get it out there and have it completed, that is my ambition and goal. I hope that my story can can help someone who’s been in my situation as well.

Stay tuned here for more information on this topic. I know several of you have been cheering on throughout the years and wanting to read it, I am very grateful for having all the support from people all over the world. Writing is our passion but it is just as well a very difficult passion to have. No matter what, you can’t live without it.

Peace and Love,

Kimmi Niroopinder Sandhu

P.S. Some of you might have noticed me using my real names interchangably, and there is no other explanation than an identity crisis. 🙂 Swedish vs Indian. Always struggling, always real.

Poems: No more dreams

Dreams are the window to the inner soul

What we really desire and long for

Appear before our eyes in the full moon night

The truth of our inner secrets come clean

In the dawn of light

Closing my eyes to see clearly

The images flash by in an instant

Holding onto the last moments

Lifetimes of love tear me apart

In two pieces

One more raw than the other

Suffocating when I can’t breathe in

The full spectrum of,

Your oxygen.

There is no answer to what I believe

No matter what is being said

Dreams can only tell, in time.

Poem: Coming Home

My journey started where it will end

Oceans and lands away from here

A place I call my real home

Inner dual voices tell me

How to really feel

Letting go of the imaginary world

Float deeper, and deeper

To another dimension

Looking up at the sky

Wondering where we will go

Do we meet after all of this

When the questions have been answered

I have been waiting for this

All of my lifetimes

To finish what I started

The unfinished story

Of another time and age

Poem: Nomadic Traveller

I’m a bird. A free spirit bird.

A nomadic traveller.

With a restless soul.

I want to fly across the sky

Watch the sun rise from the clouds

Fly endlessly,

Across the country

View the world from afar

The further I fly

The better it feels

To let go,

Of yesterday

Thoughts emerge into one

Synchronised.

Telepathically.

Connected with our,

Universal soul.
