What if I forget the purpose of tomorrow?
Will it still welcome me like today?
Perhaps I should write it down
Because I won’t remember what I say.
From years, my life is now reduced to a day
Because I forget yesterday’s Sun.
All I remember from my past is that,
Life should be a splendid one
And here I am recollecting
Each day everything and everyone.
But it’s alright I believe
Because as hard as it is
My memory is very short lived
And so is my pain.
I get to know my loved ones again and again.
Perhaps tomorrow I will utter the same words,
And won’t remember my audience again
But for today I just wanted to say…
Sorry, I forgot. Let me try again.
That once in a lifetime moment,
usually comes very discreetly.
In the end we don’t look back at the celebration,
but the moment we finally achieved victory.
Hauntingly beautiful, isn’t it?
and perhaps that is fair.
We cannot ever predict it
For it is a once in a lifetime affair.
It’s been a while. I’ll keeping coming back, no matter what.
Judgement to be sounded soon.
Choices: Cave or be brave.
A fear stands somewhere in the corner
about the uncertainty that is future.
Despite my past triumphs I feel,
What if I end up as a loser?
And thus I end up contemplating
about the adjective I will earn
which infact is meant for pleasing
those who sleep while I burn.
Even though I know, when will I learn?
Tested and proven
To some, above
To some, below
Maybe near, maybe far.
Right and refute,
You are what
By each and every
you met so far.
Leader to many,
Follower to many,
Your impressions vary
like the gazer which is bizarre.
As long as you know,
As long as I know,
No one will ever know
What others are.
As I was getting ready for another day,
I heard a pecking noise on my window.
All right already!
And there he was, a little sparrow.
He flew and sat on my hand
And tried to tell me something.
Little friend, I cannot understand
Whatever you are saying.
On my table was a picture of my family
Which the sparrow knocked down.
That was unnecessary, buddy!
And thus made sense, that pecking sound.
My new apartment stands over his old one,
It was I who was pecking.
I invaded his house while he was gone,
And it was I who wasn’t understanding.
~ The Rightful owner had returned
You never know what lies ahead.
True, I did not
and I shall forever be glad
for all that I have got.
It started when I saw an old picture
and relived that time again.
Human is an interesting creature
changing every now and then.
I changed, for good or worse?
Time shall judge.
But when I sat across that young boy
I found that we are still quite similar.
Maybe we seem changed for the world
and deep down are still those innocent believers.
Maybe we aren’t so different.
So I ask you to tell me the truth once again
and hope that this time you will not falter.
It’s easy. Just don’t pretend
and everything will be better.
There is no choice, is there?
It’s between us and we shall decide.
If you must know, know that I care
and just like truth, care cannot hide.
I know you made a mistake
Yet I choose to be by your side
because that is how it is.
Emotions don’t abide.
With steps, I realise that my pace has changed.
Stomping is harder now for my shoulder feels heavy
and eyes which used to see straight, looks down.
Even the shadow seems weary.
Yet, I never felt this burden until now
and only saw it when I did.
A little while back it was easy somehow
but now I must admit, I am growing up.
So should I be happy or should I be upset?
Answer is probably neither
for you see, even though my soles are wearing off,
My Soul is definitely a bit wiser.
