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.

Good!

Just Good or Good Enough?

No matter how great life is with us, we’ll always find it ordinary

We’ll find our blessings and pleasures just quite ordinary.

One always fails to understand that necessity for us, is luxury for many

The money that is less for us, might be a blessing for someone as just a penny.

The love that is complicated for us, might be a need somewhere

The health that is a weakness for us might be the only treasure somewhere.

The thing here is, we try to make every amazing and awesome just a good

While we fail to understand that for someone, somewhere a good is just a lot too good.

We have to stop pitying on ourselves for we have a lot to give

We have to start living a life that wasn’t any ask but a give.

We have to understand that what we might own is a lot more than most souls

We have to believe that we can give more and take less from life goals.

It’s easy to think and difficult to practice I’d say

Yet, once you feel the joy of giving you’ll live every second of the day.

An ordinary “good” for us is an extraordinary best for someone

Live the best you can with goodness, so that it makes you a better someone.

Existence!

Philosopher Socrates once said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” And years later, Psychotherapist Sheldon Kopp remarked, “The unlived life is not worth examining.”

Studying these two quotes by such marvellous people

I found myself a non-existent soul according to these people.

I’m not blaming them, but unfortunately they’re right

And don’t take me wrong but here is quite a large fight.

Because most of my age people might feel as I feel today

For we’re quite wasting the precious time of our lives everyday.

Until we examine, who we wish to be or what we wish to do

We’d be no one in a world of geniuses to be true.

And until we start living our lives to the fullest

There’d be nothing about us for the world, we’d just be a tourist.

I definitely don’t want to be someone who came to go

I want at least one hall of fame to know.

To know someone like me existed and made someone proud

If not the world I wish at least my country knows with what I’m endowed.

At this time, I don’t wish popularity nor do want any monetary gain

But is it really worth living a life just clicking pictures when it won’t return again?

Who wants a life that not many people even know of?

I don’t want to be a tourist, I want immeasurable love.

I want to exist and I want people know that I do

I want to be of some help to someone to be true.

Action!

No films would be made without any action.

How far are you from your goal?

Is it set everywhere? Is it in your soul?

Are you in action or are you still waiting?

For the time keeps running, it’s restating.

You don’t need thoughts, you need ideas

So stop thinking, for you are no Midas.

Get up and go for you have to achieve your dream

Free yourself from the world esteem.

Be responsible, be quick, work hard with grit

There isn’t anyone like you, so just befit.

Irrespective of what people say or feel

Go ahead for yourself, and close your eyes to feel.

Understand what you were born for

And get that straight to your core.

Imagine what you have to be

And stop reading this, just go and be.

Work hard for the time is now or never

Be bold, be you, be in action forever.

Ephemeral!

Moments will always fleet away with time.

I somehow feel I’ve stopped appreciating the time I have, for the time I will lose

I know it always quite depends on what we decide and what we wish to choose.

But, what exactly is the fun of losing this particular moment for a past memory?

Or losing this present minute or current second for a future happening story?

I feel that I don’t live my present quite well enough

Just by thinking how I will reach to the next one, which is tough.

At times we don’t enjoy the present ourselves because of sharing it socially

The social need of taking us forward to trends is increasing expeditiously.

Imagine a sunset, beautifully pink and golden shining at a seashore

But we are running away in the need for more.

Isn’t the sunset quite enough to enjoy for this moment?

Isn’t it just perfectly adding to the day like a valuable component?

How about a deliciously fulfilled bowl of your favourite dish?

Why is there any need to capture it and miss the aroma of your dish?

Every moment of our life is worth sharing if we notice it carefully

But wouldn’t we have a story to narrate if we hadn’t posted pictures socially?

It’s serene to live the present without thinking about the past or future

Isn’t there so much in this moment for us to nurture?

There’s so much to do right away if we think about it

Also there’s so much to live by, bit by bit.
