That's the beauty of keeping a book handy while travelling. Here I'm referring to my posts from April-May 2010 when I was at my native place- angry about missing my BFFs 18th birthday and I'd written this poem.
Who'd understand the grieving heart? Who shall get to know the subliming pain? Who would set the happiness apart? Who'd know if all's just gone in vain?
In depths the darkened shadows lie, They rise against the ferocious sky, But light and fire could cause its defeat, & that will dampen the shadows glee.
The shadow ain't a stamp upon the earth, It's an extension of a source of the sun's worth, It's long and deep like the seclusion sea, And finds its way to go back to days of merry.
How much ever strong- the shadow stands alone, It's crying in sorrow- lying on the floor, It's hammering heart beats in it's torn soul, And the wounds of tears are deeper than of knives and ropes.
You have wishes and a lot of them. So many, that your heart gets full of it when someone asks, "what do you wish for?" but isn't it ironical? When someone does ask you that- your mind goes blank and you start playing fish-pond in your head- picking a wish randomly and saying it out loud realizing later /omg that it wasn't actually what you wanted desperately, it was something else. 'Opportunity knocks your door only once' a wrong saying :)
What I have learnt through books, elders, personal experiences is that you create opportunities, it isn't a postman that'll spoon-feed you by coming to your doorstep smiling and delivering success. Just like a letter, even that success has to be written by someone. That someone should be you.
If someone who knows me (esp. my family) and if they read this- probably they're going ROFL 'coz I think I invented 'weird' but hey, if my experiences help someone, isn't it a good thing? Maybe if one person out there reads this and if his life is awesomer by 1%, isn't it an achievement for both of us?
A small Accomplishment is still an Accomplishment :)
So Push yourself don't enslave :) Be the Flying Ostrich.. Yes, Ostriches can't fly but didn't they say the same about Humans?
Don't know why I'm even writing this. I want something and it's a hard thing to want. I want a diamond desired by all. Will I get it?
