At the end of this path
turn around and look back.
You shall see a warpath
and a part of your legacy.
You will one day walk far away
and some kid will try to reach to you.
On that day, hope that your legacy convey
to not follow your path but to walk on one’s own way
and that you shall greet the kid when he does reach
and hope that the kid goes farther away
then you ever did.
A legend’s legacy.
Want to hear me recite this one? Comment below 🙂
Today, I won’t speak but would like you to. You have a listener in me. Speak, I’ll listen.
Sanguine words fall on deaf ears
when the listener is tired.
Sometimes it’s better to just hear
the person who is haywire.
Often the solution comes
from a one sided conversation
because answers are already there on the tongue
and there is a perfect time for revelation.
Ever noticed how a child sleeps,
after a good long cry?
That child is grown up now
and has been devoid of a good cry.
Be patient just like a parent
and allow the flow of resentment
because a warped heart cannot ever see the present.
Speak my friend until you are content.
Every day is a start.
It’s up to us to decide the one
Which will play the cardinal part
To a story which has begun.
Or maybe we can have two stories,
With one start and two endings.
Every story embodies,
So many characters who are pretending.
One life is lead by each
Yet many versions of it are later preached.
Same characters but with different speech,
Oh wait, no story remains unbreached.
Start is one but point is different.
Ending for them is when we choose not to understand.
Your story you may not understand,
is perceived, not planned. Once upon a time

I am an addict.
I cannot live without it.
An insurmountable urge from within,
Makes it impossible to quit.
It here is a habit,
Which shoots my wit
And makes me unfit,
Or as they say, misfit.
To find peace I chose to commit,
To my inner voice I submit.
But atleast I am not a hypocrite,
For I have the courage to admit.
Funny, your thoughts right now,
Whispering the signs of distress.
But I never disclosed “it”.
Maybe I didn’t want to impress.
