Tag Archives: Regrets


Apprentice means a learner. At the moment I’m learning how to cut my hair by watching YouTube videos. I had a bad hair experience about three months ago. I looked awful. I kept my hair covered even when there was no one at home to look at me. I looked a fright. Daughter got fed up with my wishing I had never gone into that shop

That got me thinking why not do it myself? It’s difficult, specially cutting hair at the back. Besides I don’t have mirrors at the side, or back. The first time I did it carefully. It wasn’t perfect, but after a week it started looking better. 

Day before yesterday, I had another go. It didn’t end well, since I was in a hurry to come out of the bathroom. I share a bathroom with grandsons, and they were with us for a two day period. The back of my head looks kind of bizarre. 

I’m hoping with a color session my hair may look better, or maybe in a week’s time hair growth will cover up the flaw in cutting. Wishful thinking that’s what I’m doing at the moment.

Disappointment mars my face

I will it to free my aching heart

Lift the inky dark clouds away

I should have kept my expectations at bay

Icy claws of regret squeeze my heart to this day

Don’t Like Decisions

Trapped by indecision

I put my right foot ahead

Should it be left?

Stay put, don’t move

Till I make a decision

After taking a decision

My stomach churns

Beads of perspiration appear on my forehead

Waves of regret lap at me

Oh God! What have I done?


What is your worst quality?


Take a Chance on Me

The biggest chance I took in recent years is my shifting here at the behest of my children. I am still trying to find my feet. I didn’t do my homework while taking the chance, and I am finding myself full of regrets.

Up till now my papers are not ready. I have not found a house with ever dwindling of my funds. I am unhappy, disappointed over many things and so on.

I have found out more about the people in my life. That is a plus thing finding out the true nature of people. I wouldn’t have if I had remained cocooned back home.

But the main thing is I am trying to remain upbeat inspite of the circumstances. I am trying to find solace holding onto little moments in my life to allay fears within my soul.

Sometimes it does become overly dark with misgivings. I try to breathe, and still hold onto sanity.
