I Can’t breathe… As I grasp for more

I surrender my heart to the one with hope.

“One last breath left,

one last chance to seek for my inner-pope.”

As I stand alone in a world filled with passion

I ask myself; “What if….?”

I look down…. And I see this rope.

“Do I dare?” I ask myself.




As I am not ready to fall

I seek for a reason to fly.


With the sound of music

I hear my mother’s Lullaby.

I Follow the voice that guides me through

this beauty that has been shown with mother’s-eye.

Stamp of approval

Yes you call me khwabo it rhymes with the word Gulaabo in Hindi and it is often used for Punjabi girls with pink cheeks, I too belong to the punjabi culture with big dreams.. so yeah thanks alot for giving me an identity which is is in sync to me. Lots of love JoJo. Where are you from?
