Awaiting the Final Clash

“You’ve to study,”

I tell myself,

Not only me, everyone does,

Out I look to the bookshelf,

“Don’t let homework pass!”

But my poor mind goes over St. John’s Wood,

“Come on,” I scold, “You’re up to no good!”

But what to do, mind had already gone over,

To a historic place called Lord’s,

A real fight is going on…

Not with arrows, not with swords,

But with bats and balls—

I can’t wait, I can’t take it more,

It’s the ICC World Cup finals!

A Favour To Ask

I really can’t believe I’m writing this post… I am greatly embarrassed but still quite desperate for it…

A Request To You

This is an earnest request to anyone having Instagram. I don’t have an account, neither do anyone at our home… 😦

Would you please kindly forward this message to @alexcarey_5…?

“Sir Carey, I am one of the greatest fan of yours ever! You are one of the reasons for me to start watching cricket again. I have been mesmerised greatly by your personality and skills. Unfortunate, but I don’t have a mean to express my gratitude and admiration for you.

Your courage at the semi-finals really moved my heart and opened up my eyes. I can’t express how much esteem I hold for you. I have written a small poem dedicated to you. I shall be truly grateful if you take your time and give it a glance once…

For me you are the personification of courage! Thank you very much for being my idol!

~Your greatest fan ever”

I am truly grateful to anyone who hears my plea… Thank you a lot!

These days, poetry has given me a new language to express myself. Every thought, every emotions, every feelings can be expressed through it.

Alex Tyson Carey’s courage at the 2nd semi-final of the ICC Cricket Tournament really shook my heart. And at last I’ve got a way to express it.

Dedicated to Carey,


Courage is not bragging

Or boasting in front of the world,

Nor it is a miracle

Promising no falls—

But it is, indeed, a promise

To get up back again,

To put on a smile

In front of sadness and pain;

To be level head

In the darkest of days,

To shine like a star,

In the darkest of nights;

To fight,

To fight on till the end;

And if defeat comes,

Accepting it the gallant way.

Have a great day and weekend ahead!

A Player Who Touched My Heart

If I were to name one of the starring players of ICC World Cup 2019, one player to get amazing catches, one player to have a high strike-rate, then for me, that player is no one other than….
