Younger Self!

We often follow the values that were instigated into us in our childhood.

Talking to my younger self today

Looking at myself back in the way.

Nothing is changing everyday

But as I look back, time has passed away.

The time that had a treasure box

Of tight hugs and a paradox.

Paradox of so many realities

Away from accustomed formalities.

As I grow up I relate to mom and dad

As a kid too, I wish at times I had.

It’ll never be easy to be in their shoes

As a young girl, I loved moms big shoes.

Going back in time, regretting a little too

Of mistakes I made and for whining so much too.

But today when I see this grown up girl in me

I think of how years passed and how I became me.

Getting to know myself better I had a word

With my younger self about this world.

Asking that kid to forget about the pasts

And to think about all the treasure that lasts.

And as a result I’ll run back into dad’s arms again

The way I did as a young child then.

I’ll kiss my mom and bring back the lost time

For my younger self knows it was pretty sublime.

Somewhere!

Striving to reach a destination I’m not sure even exists.

Looking for a quiet place

A place for mind space.

A place where my soul is at peace

Where I have my own think piece.

A place where my dreams are understood

Where I’m fearless and stand withstood.

A somewhere that defines my mind state

Somewhere I can find my imaginative state.

A path for my perseverance

A plateau for thought clearance.

A home for family and love

A sky where flies the white dove.

Looking for a quiet place

A place for mind space.

Living!

For today, when I woke up I didn’t want to exist but live.

Work, eat and sleep

Waking up on alarm beep.

Run, earn, look good

Don’t smile, wear that hood.

Don’t laugh, don’t feel

Be hurt, but don’t heal.

Don’t take a break

Time to be awake.

Don’t explore, no curiosity

Understand your work intensity.

It’s time to sleep, go to bed

Listen, obey, don’t use your head.

Mind language, don’t take much time

Be the best! Be sublime!

Leaving this existence far behind

I come out as strong and kind.

Keeping that fear away

And making special my today.

With taking less and more of giving

Now I guess, my life I’m living.

Virtuous!

Because life isn’t always a bed of roses.

Not all days are good,

Not all faces are happy

Not all troubles are withstood

And most of them are snappy.

Yet I try to find myself

A little piece of peace with self.

A little happiness in the day of sorrow

A little mindfulness to borrow.

Not everything is positive

Not every factor is a causative.

Everybody won’t like you out there

But don’t you want to stand somewhere?

Somewhere in a crowd of millions

Someone in a population of billions.

So make it your virtue

And strive to make it true.

True and fathomable to every extent

Unperturbed by the outside content.

For everything that matters is

What happens within is a bliss.

 

Changing Professions!

Life gives us quite many chances to take and choices to make.

Maybe I didn’t come here to win

Maybe I just wanted to begin.

I wanted to begin a new chapter of my book

And soon I realized I was writing the wrong book.

How do you feel when you’re on a wrong path of the journey

Even though it’s not about any money?

How does one feel when one has to start all over again

When everything you’ve done until now goes to vain?

Most people look at me like I’ve committed some big mistakes

And most look in the eye thinking if they could too take retakes.

Retakes in a life that we get only once

Mistakes we usually make in abundance.

I don’t know who has a quintessential career

But I do know that I’m sincere.

Sincere enough to finish what I started

And I’ll be here fighting till the end whole hearted.

Device!

Something that has become a vital part of us today.

I know I’m typing this blog to reach out to you

But this is not how I imagined to meet someone new.

I don’t remember who taught me to bend like that

While I remember standing tall without a stick or hat.

I look down on my phone all day long and pray

“Oh Lord! Please put my back ache away.”

This is not just my story and I don’t blame anybody

But I don’t wish to be a part of it as a somebody.

It’s time we realize that we’re going back from where we came

Evolution to demolition can be such a shame.

I’m doing more things that make me forget to check my phone

And trust me, on this path I’m not alone.

Look around and say hi, there’s a world outside Facebook

I’m sure there’s a library out there, to touch and read a literal new book.

Death!

The only thing that can bring an end to everything, every task, every relationship all at once, is mortality.

I’ve never considered death as a menace

I’m sure death too caries immense grace.

But what if it came tomorrow to me?

What if I know it’s coming to me?

Tough to react to a situation like that right?

Especially after all this glorious fight?

The fight to live better and rise with hope

The fight to get somewhere after a slippery slope?

Well, life was tough too but it always had beginnings

Even after loss it gave us too many innings.

Because, we were alive to see the next morning

To wake up to live a new day so adorning.

What would you do to make today special if it were last?

What would you forget and who would you forgive in your last?

Whom would you thank and whom would you kiss?

Whom would you give your life’s treasure and whom would you miss?

What would you eat and what would you wear?

Whom would you tell that you always did and still will care?

Well, do it now, for tomorrow never dies

And never comes a time to realize.

Realize that life is too short no matter how long it gets

It’s a blessing each day, no matter how tough it gets.

Begin today because an end has no story

Death isn’t evil but make it look like glory.
