Being "Afshan" :-)

Being myself is a puzzle which I try to solve with each passing day.
Every day I discover a new side of me which may or may not stay.
I am like that season which passes by but leaves its mark.
I am like that glow which enlightens you, yet keep you in dark!

I rhyme with out a reason and I write a poem any time, any day.
Poems make me sing, make me smile and they make me sway.
I heart my blog and even my man can't come between us.
I talk to myself here and at times trap my soul in my words!

"Being Afshan is a riddle to solve,a mind to evolve and thoughts which revolve or dissolve!"

Reading and writing keep me sane and I write to know me more.
Even as I am writing this I realize there is something more in store.
I love celebrations, I love getting decked up and I love travelling and nature.
I am thoughtful at times, watchful many times and sometimes I am a premature!

I travel in to memories and  keep the kid in me alive to enjoy life's smallest joys.
The man in my life helps me maintain poise and also bears my noise;)
I can never write a short post, so please tolerate these few lines about me.
To know more you and me should sit and talk over ten cups of coffee or tea!! :-D
