Money or no money
We always pay a price
For all the things we say
Even for the things we don’t
Young or old
We always experience love
In many forms and states
Even its absence up close
Success or failure
We always learn lessons
From the classrooms to our folks
Even when we keep no scores
So stop thinking too much
Just keep yourself engaged
In things and people you love
Stop limiting your happiness
Spread the love!
When I dream, sometimes I wish all we do is lay on the soft grass on a mountain top.
Trying to squint our eyes, gazing up at the flying butterflies
Sometimes I wish we keep our secrets stored in jars.
Like fireflies waiting to fly away, spreading wings into the dark night.
Sometimes I wish we stay up late
Trying to hear those small sounds that are suddenly loud in the silent of the night
Sometimes all I wish is to be that tiny insect that crawls out of its house
Going on a night trail. Exploring. And learning.
When I dream sometimes I wish to be a child again.
Not youtubing the news thats trending or worrying about hidden meanings.
Sometimes I wish life was not such a race against time or a fight between a cause and its policies.
Sometimes I wish that we could really see where we are heading.
Do something. Anything to keep the mind from bleeding.
When I dream, sometimes I wish.
We sometimes find refuge in words.
In never ending verses
In songs that speak to strangers
In unintended whispers
We become nomads of time
Under the open skies of our minds
Trusting love to lead us
Resting with peace in our end times
And then when we wake up
Slowly opening our eyes
To what lies ahead in time
To what we once had in mind
Wondering what’s real.
You cannot try everything at once. You cannot try everything everytime either. But you can try all the things that you put your soul into.
You can either be a hurricane and destroy everything. Or you can be the fresh, cool wind that makes people smile with their eyes closed. So decide now. At this moment. You can try everything atleast once if you put your heart and soul into it. Or you cannot.
It is up to you to start walking towards the light. The light might grow dim or it might flicker. But you can still see it. You can always rely on it. As long as you trust yourself, you can go on. As long as you are your own light, you can go on. So don’t waste time on things that make you weak. But choose the harder paths. You are the light of the world. So keep going.
In this vast expanse of unwanted judgements, and overrated feelings, don’t fall into the trap of hiding yourself. If you feel that you are weird, be weird. If you feel that you are not so social, remember there’s nothing wrong with it.If you feel that you are chirpy, its really cool to be so. But if you feel that you might be going wrong somewhere, then maybe you need to pause a bit, and take it slow. If that tiny voice inside your head tells you to wait, then maybe you should wait.
Life is short, sure. But its also a one way journey. So instead of keeping or hiding behind your own built walls, open up to friends about your struggles and misery. Coz hey, what’s life without stories?
The sky said to the earth “In a sea of million images, I want to click one picture that describes you well enough. That one picture of you to make me go through many lost moments so that I know I can be found again. I am vast but I see you anywhere I go. I would be lost if I didn’t see you. Most people fail to know the storm brewing within me. You know it though.
“But now, you have become weak and so have I. The cycle which we had has been disturbed. I have a hole in my heart which is burning your skin. I was made to protect you from the danger beyond. But my life is on a thread now. I want to make it right. I cannot do it without the help of those who have brought this upon us though. Those who inhabit you yet fail to take care of you. Those who use your resources yet fail to replenish it…”
This is something sad yet true. We celebrate such days like earth day, environment day, water day and many more..but do we do anything else on other days which might improve the state of our planet?
