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.

Chapter One!

Beginning on this page today!

One has to start somewhere

To one day, eventually, get there.

We all have to take that one step

Even if it turns out to be a misstep.

It takes courage and it doesn’t come easy

But life is not always breezy.

We should learn how to dance in the rain

We should learn how to live without any gain.

We’ve got to be a beginner to be anything

We’ve got to begin someplace to become something.

None of us here were born to remain a someone

We all have a dream to become that one

Role model or idol or inspiration

That one dedicated person that strikes a connection.

You and me, we both look up to that one day

When we reach the top in our own way.

But I’m crazy enough today to say

That our one day isn’t far away.

Lag!

On the path of looking for a destination, I found myself.

None of us were born wise

Nor does wisdom come with sunrise.

It takes some drastic steps

Some unforgettable failures and missteps.

Some tearful rains and some cheerful gains

It takes courage to grow from pains.

Life is a struggle, will always be

But I don’t want to be an absentee.

Who wants to stay in a bud and never bloom

I don’t wish for a life that’s just a presume.

Yes it’s tough to kill time sometime

But who said we’ve got a lot of time?

Tired of being home, get out now

Tired of rains, go find your sun somehow.

No one waits here, no one will

They’ll all move way ahead while you stand still.

Life is long, try not breathing for a minute

It’s way too long if you can live it minute by minute.

Yet, it’s never too late to find your fate

Today’s twenty-fourth, soon it’ll be twenty-eighth.

Promise!

Promise yourself and keep it strong even after all the obstacles you go through.

Every dream has the power to come true

But one always has to have the belief to make it true.

There will always be difficulties and struggles

One always finds stability after innumerable juggles.

Life might put you through the toughest situations

But it will also give you the strength to come up with solutions.

It might seem easier to turn back at one point

Yet, be strong and keep going for that isn’t the highest point.

Reach the top and scream it all out

But before you get there, keep no self doubt.

Promise yourself to fight until the winning stroke

Don’t ever let it break or say, “I broke!”

Be brawn, be bellicose

And one day, hold high your nose.

With gratitude for life, the struggles and the joy

Be thankful and proud, don’t be coy.

For keeping the promise you made to yourself

Of living a dream you once saw for yourself.

Chapters Of My Life!

Every book has good and bad chapters.

She walked along the pages of her book

And her footsteps wrote the words of her book.

She danced and drew and doodled around too

Her book was something special and different too.

And then she grew old and met people new

Who stayed for a few pages and then someone new.

Some stayed quite long and some held a little time

Some turned her book into a teardrop and some made it sublime.

She traveled and added pictures to the story

She had to much to say but now she created history.

Every book has chapters good and bad

She experienced them all and I’m glad.

She played along the pages of her book

And her footsteps wrote the words of her book.

Death!

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

1.jpg

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.
