The Choice

A mountain of burden heavy to carry,

Shoulders with tangled knots,

Tired with worries,

Working around the clock,

No Sleep, No Rest

Life was definitely a test,

A line of hurdles to cross,

Finding the way or getting lost,

Each test is a pass or a fail,

At the end you choose the trail…

DOWN THE STREAM

Way down the stream,

The water is at its peak,

Caught in the waves I swirl around,

The stream ahead joins the sea,

I am eager to reach the bigger waters,

From there on I reach the shores,

Where it is safe for me,

On my way,

I catch the eye of young children playing nearby,

They are amused by me,

They watch me and play with me,

and let me go my way,

My journey is a tough one to take,

For the waters are deep,

I am just a small boat I may sink or cast away,

But yet I continue in these aggressive waters,

Conquering all the hurdles in my way,

For my destination is unknown,

I follow the path of the sea and go with it wherever it leads…

THE RUN

I felt the ground beneath my feet,

I was not ready for defeat,

Looked up ready to go,

Anxious and waiting,

There it began the mega race ,

Slowly my feet picked up pace,

I made my way to the first in line,

I was in my lane,

We were done with the laps,

Now it was the end point I had to break,

Destination close by,

Feet tired and slow,

Tried hard but made it to second place,

Still proud it was a well deserved victory!!

Life’s Truth

There are times in life when you feel completely lost,

You don’t know which direction to take,

There is no sign board to guide you through this road,

Goals seem far away to achieve,

You are trying your best to go on anyway,

Hoping there is some light somewhere,

People don’t make it easy for you either,

A million things are said,

You gather all strengths and face them boldly,

Days , months pass away and still no success,

You fall down with vain,

But somehow you hold on to something or someone who will share your pain,

Life seems a bit better as you are not alone now,

The journey is going to be tough you know you have to take tough decisions,

Life comes to a stand still and you take a moment to think and breathe,

Plan all there is to achieve that is beyond,

Know that life is tough and there will be obstacles in the way,

But someday you will get what you deserve,

Because hard work always pays….

An Empty Space

“Everything was there, yet there was nothing”

“Loneliness took over and brought darkness along”

Emotions were out of place”

“The need to be more visible grew”

Insecurities clouded judgement”

“The ocean of thoughts, the waves that grew stronger day by day”

Creating an empty space…..

Remember When I am Gone

Remember those memories we created,

Those laughs and smiles we shared,

The long journeys we took together,

Holding hands on a beach and the water coming by and touching our feet,

That piece of cake we shared,

The celebrations with our families,

Remember when I am gone,

We have faced so much together,

We were pillars of strength to each other,

Through those sorrows and the up and down’s.

As we grow old together,

Leading a simple life,

Till the end forever,

Remember when I am gone…

A Walk

She went for a long walk,

No destination just across,

Just kept going and going,

Her feet wouldn’t stop,

She went for a long walk,

Her mind full of thoughts,

Worries for what was to come,

Her tomorrow seemed so lost,

There was a sense of fear of the future,

She took a pause from her walk,

Sat on a bench around the corner and gave it a thought

Her mind was not calm she couldn’t think right

A decision could not be taken today,

So she continued her walk in a hope to find a way…

The Quietness

Sometimes when things don’t work your way,

When you feel your troubles are just getting over,

More comes your way,

You are tired and exhausted and you try to see the best in every way,

But all seems blank,

You want to believe things will be fine ,

But hope seems to disappear away,

Mind so still,

No thoughts no feelings inside,

It’s so quiet inside that the noise outside cant be heard at all….
