Do not be proud of what you have,
Never condemn in your perceived perfection
Things stay constant for but a fleeting second
The condemned shall rise to dispel your misconceptions
Exercise caution, Beware!
They may be fictitious, the things for which you care
Your life may stray, from plan far away
Reduced to the cinders of a laughable play
The bat of an eye,
A twist of fate,
Reality walks with a gleam in the eye,
Only to one day make you see
How mercurial life can be!
The fickleness of friendship
The brevity of love
The longevity of pain
The plan from up above
The unreasonable responsibilities
the reasonable guilt at shirking it
The unsurmountable mountain of expectations
The small hill of your ambitions
The fight within you, you are constantly losing
The fight outside, you must win
The quest you began, lying forgotten
The road thrust on you, under your feet
The memories, bittersweet,flashing,fleeting
The ambitions, like dreams, caricatures and unease
What is your life?
The child sees, wants, builds a wonderful castle
The adult understands, bargains, and cuts it down to size
Life is nothing but a child’s dream being rudely broken by an adult’s reality.
The end of something. Is it really the beginning of another?
I think something somewhere just dies.
Never to be the same, ever.
The loss of someone. Overcome because you found another?
I think it strange to replace soul with soul.
But we constantly want better.
If only, we knew better.
Did you hear the noise?
I just fell out of grace
It was not by choice
The sand seems slimy
Time is uncertain
Its running out fast, blimey!
The memories boil
Anger, love, friendship,
Contentment turned to turmoil
The phone cried
Call, message, a reminder?
No, The battery just died.
We are scared,
Its not perfect, It may never be
Lets not pursue a dream that is not meant to be
Lets spare us the pain, the trials of love
that otherwise may stay forever
If it was an easy choice, shouldn’t I rejoice?
Seems Something is not quite right.
It seems the only solution, the inevitable end
It seems only logical, Its not just a bend
Anymore, its a full blown dent
If it is so simple, shouldn’t I feel light?
But Something is not quite right.
Its a matter of choice,
Its a matter of wants.
Its shaping your life by the will of your hands.
Its choosing a future
But loosing a past
Its hoping the decision was right
And may last.
If the biggest fear, still
Is the knowledge that you will be forgotten
That promises easily overwritten
That you lose the right to fight,
Something is definitely not right.
But some decisions are such
They’re a one-way street
You each take your own,
And wish, that one-day
They may meet!
Looking for a new view
Seeking the Old, in a new purview
Old is familiar, safe and easy
New is unknown, murky and scary….
Old is stable, secure and sure
But it needs New; constant recourse
New brings action, hope and life
Old is gold; but stagnant it dies
Keep the Old, with a dash of new….
Every once in a while,
Change the damn view!
All I wanted today
Was to run far away
To leave it all behind,
To hide myself in a shrine
With relics of my past,
Of a future I dreamed the night before last
Peaceful at heart, soul and mind,
And at peace with itself at the same time
Beautiful memories of times gone by,
Aspirations to build new memories, to try,
And yearn for a life that makes you proud,
Content, happy and devoid of the shroud,
Tired I am of donning which,
Its time I retired it, let it sit,
Its time I run away,
Far far away…..
Seldom do we find,
A mind alike our mind,
A soul so close to our past,
was it made in the same cast?
Another brain that precisely fires,
our brain’s deepest desires,
Another heart that pounds,
to the beats of our life, bound….
Another hand that seemingly holds,
our secrets; many, untold.
Another face that glows,
with emotions you chose…
Cherish the joys of such company,
Marvel over the sounds of your synchrony,
Let it make life a happy symphony!
