Crying Heart

His heart is crying,

His desperation is intensifying,

His happiness is dying,

How well he hides all this is terrifying!

 

He wants to cry,

But tears don’t come out.

His pain magnifies,

But those precious water droplets are still in a hideout.

 

The burden on his mind is huge,

There remains no place to seek refuge…

 

But then he finds a silver lining in this horror

Resulting in the birth of a budding poet and author…

Now, there is no time such as a bad time,

All it is that he now has more content to write about and rhyme!

 

 

Be an Example!

 

 

“Stay Hungry Stay Foolish. Never let go of your appetite to go after new ideas, new experiences, and new adventures.

It is often seen that humans tend to take the beaten path. They tend to follow others for it is easier and comfortable. From a young age, we are told to avoid taking risks and to try and “settle” in life. Not that there is anything wrong in having a secure life per se but risk avoidance often leads to the death of so many new ideas and innovations.

 New experiences will always teach you something. Even the seemingly insignificant things might end up giving you another perspective to life. Moreover, participating in different things enables one to enhance your skillset. You might even find your hidden talent doing so. It is a possibility that you try your hand at painting and find out that it comes naturally to you.

Taking bold decisions is difficult because there is a significant possibility of failing. But extraordinary things can only be achieved by taking extraordinary decisions. Had Elon Musk not decided to start  SpaceX and Tesla just because of the huge probability of failing (Elon Musk has stated that both of these companies had around only 10% chance of surviving), we might not have had any concrete plans for a manned Mars mission or existence of self-driving cars. There is no denying that people seldom succeed on their first try but if you’d never start trying then how would you reach a point where the possibility of succeeding is huge. Robert Kennedy has rightly said that only those who dare to fail greatly can achieve greatly!

Staying in one’s comfort zone may seem tempting but it would never give you a sense of deep satisfaction. You would always have a seed of doubt in your mind that what if I had done that particular thing? Isn’t it better to gather courage and do something you always wanted to rather than staying in your comfort zone and indulging in self-pity? You might end up messing up but at least you there would be no doubt affecting your mental well-being. To add to that, the experience you would gain would be invaluable!

 We all have heard names of exemplary leaders in different fields. Instead of just learning trivial facts about them, let us learn from their works and experiences and try to become an example ourselves!

 

Over And Out

Admirable,Angelic Acts

 

 He was sitting in the park, all alone,

Visibly upset with his face screaming a silent groan,

It seemed as if he had just been hit with a mental cyclone.

Then came a person unknown…

 

 

The guy asked him if he was fine,

Tried cheering him up with games and jokes combined,

And alas, all his sadness suddenly became benign.

The person was his desperately needed lifeline,

And his night’s moonshine. 

 

 

That human was no celebrity 

That human might not have opened several charities

But he was a superstar full of compassion

And showed that small acts go so far that one can’t even imagine

Who Knew

Who knew that behind that laugh

Was a heart that was broken in half

 

Who knew that behind that beautiful Instagram post

Was a soul that was depressed the most

 

Who knew that behind that gorgeous face

Was a person who had no inner grace;

And needed to be put in his place

 

Who knew that behind that poet’s charming phrases

Were his life’s darkest phases.

 

Who knew that behind that “loyal” friend

Was a stranger that only knew how to pretend

 

Who knew that behind that closed room door

Was a brain that was waiting to roar…

Memories

All of these stories

Some full of joy, some full of worries

Sometimes jotted down in journals or diaries

Are life’s memories

Creating mischief and putting your friends to blame 

The joy of defeating your cousins in a board game

Teasing your best friend’s with their crush’s last name 

All these memories are beautiful, all the same

Packing suitcases 

And visiting different places

Getting photographs clicked making different faces

And then later, remembering the times spent in these oasis…

Binge watching web series and shows

At late night just before you doze

And then getting annoyed when the mobile screen buffers and froze

Ah, what times where those!

Those small successes

Of winning a quiz through guesses

Or getting first prize in a competition where you had to wear fancy dresses

Reminiscing those give the most joy to your brain and its five senses

Sit back and go through your life’s memories on a random day of July

And one moment, they leave you horrified

And in the next, you’ll be flying in the sky 

And before you realise, you might have tear in your eye…

Mind

Prone to wander,

And although not scared to face things even scarier than thunder,

It’s own thoughts make it shudder as if it is being blundered,

And it becomes their slave rather than its commander

It is indeed world’s most complicated wonder…

What it doesn’t know is that it is the most potent thing to ever exist 

For it is the creator of the most powerful technology and most effective medicines for the treatment of most horrid of cysts.

Someone tell it that it is indeed God’s most special gift

And even when all other material things disappear, it is the most likely to persist…

So strong that it can destroy itself and deteriorate

Be it in the form of excess sadness, pleasure or love that it itself might create.

There is a limit to the emotions that it can accumulate

If pushed beyond its limits, it is likely to disintegrate…

Universe…

Gazing at the vast sky

Observing the birds that are up-high

Sitting in a train, watching thousands of establishments and people go by

Gaping at something which changed in a blink of an eye

Makes us realise life is so much more than what is happening nearby.

Thus, worrying too much for something about which you can’t possibly do anything

Instead of moving onto better prospects that have much more meaning

Is full of foolishness and not at all appealing

Being 1 in 7 billion of humans with the number increasing day-by-day,

On Earth, which makes up about 1/400 billion of the total planets in the MilkyWay,

And number of galaxies totalling up to at least 100 billion according to an organisation based in USA;

Why care about things that will eventually fade-away

When you don’t make up a single grain of sand of a desert of this universe

Why think about problems so much as if they would never disperse

Just remember when you are at your lowest, things wouldn’t get worse

And you would eventually get what you deserve…
