Do you look beyond tomorrow?
Can you see the beauty of everything?
Do you look beyond your sorrows?
There is more to life than your routine.
The building, the tree, the car, the sea
I came across a thousand beings.
To love, to feel, to chance, to seize
Have you ever tried to follow your dreams?
Even if you fall
Even if you fail
Even if its not clear there,
Have the courage to believe.

I walk about in nude dreams. So serene. So naïve.
I walk about in narrow lanes and wide streets
Where do we belong? Who are we?
Have we got a choice?
I don’t know my next turn,
or if the spoken words are empty lies?
What’s behind that face?
A faded scar? A fake smile?
Build the courage you need to get to it
Before your life flies
For there is no tomorrow,
There is no yesterday
All we have with us is,
Only this day
Walk a mile on your foot
For there is no success to life,
Without the hard way
Without the hard way.

A light is born.
The candle ignites.
A smile spreads.
The moon glows.
The baby chuckles.
Love is born.
The light struggles.
The candle flickers.
The clouds come.
It rains tears.
Courage is persistent.
An inspiration triggers it.
A breathtaking scene.
An angle is discovered.
Midst all the ruffle.
Success is painted..
( When we were little children, everyone used to keep asking us this one question all the time. “Beta, what do you wish to become once you grow up?” and innocent as we were back then from all the intricacies of its answer, we always had a sweet and simple answer ready. But then as keep growing older, our answer gets molded according to the ‘realities’ of the world around us.
Do we actually discover ourselves? Do we manage to adhere to our ‘inner calling’ as they call it? I have heard that people often have their self discovery at a very latter stage in their lives. Sometimes at times when either life could’nt have been perfect for them or worse phrase of their existence. Suddenly that one moment is there when you know exactly what you gotta do with yourself. But when that moment delays, it comes at a time when its too late to look back, to amend.
So, with many of us, this eureka moment fails to take place when we need it the most. When the so called turning point comes in our life, we are just clueless about what to do. The junction where our one decision is going to dictate the rest of your life, seems to be the ‘be all and the end all’.
This is exactly what I, and am sure many of my counterparts,were experiencing when the terror of college admissions was on our muddled heads. Some get it easy and some, through the hard way. But we have to admit that we are lucky enough to find ourselves at least somewhere by the end of it. But should the misery end here? Or does it? Is getting a decent college admission, or job our ultimate motive?
If Steve Jobs, Shakespeare, Ambani, wouldn’t have faced difficulty finishing their formal education, I wonder how things would be today? All our lives the search should be on and that is what helps us grow. We learn through the mistakes. The tough times make our success. Whether you like it or not. The fact is that perfection is boring. We need challenges to keep us going. If everything carries on happily ever after, then there will be no space for anything better. You gotta push yourself out of your comfort pack once in a while, only to get a better package altogether! Life is good, but it can always be better!!
