An Unfulfilling Circle


Just another day of toil, it was for that guy,

Years of working hard, he had lost his hope that one day, this life would bring him peace.

Waking up and following that routine life,

To catch that scheduled rail, every day, he would strive!

Just another day of this charades he thought this would be,

But things never remain the same, and that day was one such instance,

Listening to the customized playlist of his, he continued his day.

Observing the entire crowded space, he could wonder what their stories would be.

Someone reading that fiction, that was a major hit,

While some listening to the old classics!

Gossip around the air, among that group of three,

Some kid, trying to get free, because of the unending curiosity.

And sometimes he could see familiar faces, living the same life.

Looking at this, did lighten his heart, as he starts his day,

Reaches his workspace and greets the ones he knew,

As the day kept going, he did feel exhausted,

Never was a point in his career, was his work appreciated,

By the end of the day, he kept asking himself, why he entered this field,

He just had his fake smile on him, and got up as he thought he was done for the day,

Well, the 9-5 job did think otherwise, and he had to stay back,

The energy to continue though, he did lack.

And finally, when he did leave, he looked around, there was not a single soul around him that he could see.

The walk back to get that rail, made him feel a bit frustrated,

A long weekend ahead it was, and the crowd did multiply,

He felt, how long would he let the job kill him like this

And this led him to again observe the things around him,

Looking around and guessing every one’s story,

He soon started to realise,

His life was far better than those whose life was filled with lies,

His heart, though broken, still had hope.

He could do better in life for he had so much more of strength and source that some did lack.

All he had to do was take that leap of faith,

But, he never did, for he lived in his comfort zone,

All this time, he just wanted to play it safe,

Forgetting his dreams to be free from things around him,

Yet giving his life a meaning!

All he wanted in life was to inspire someone,

So, he went back to his base,

And picked up his weapon that defined him truly,

He cleared the dust of the constant pressure of the society,

And started to write,

The feeling of purity started to flow back to him,

He wrote something of that sort after a while,

While writing, his eyes did fill, while he had a small smile,

For he knew, this is something people would like.

And he did not stop that night,

He went on for hours,

Until he finished his piece

That eventually gave his heart some peace!

All it took, was just another bad day,

And some stories to get him back on his way.

 

An unfulfilling circle, life is. We run and run and run only to eventually return at same spot we started, while expecting things to change.

It is often at such stages of life, people tend to forgo their happiness for the sake of things that matter for only some time, but I feel, life would be way better, if they did stick to what they love doing.

Hoping people realise the need of art. Let me know your thoughts on this and share it. On a side note, really grateful for the love I’ve recieved this year, with only a limited number of posts, I have recieved the highest number of views this year, and I appreciate this! Thank you.

I will be back with another great post, until then, #LIVEyOURLIFE !

Life and Passion

I’ve been here for so long,
Writing about where we as humans belong.
For a while now, I’ve been singing this song,
Without knowing about the things around.
Naive, I may have been,
But, I was just following my dream.
Spreading the word of passion, spreading the word of love,
Many did try before me, but none of us want to evolve.
Does passion really matter?
I have been asking myself this for some time!
I don’t know why it took too long for me to answer,
For without it, my life here would really have been a disaster!

Everyday, I wake up and start my day,
I only see stories along the way.
I can see people, who are stuck with a routine,
I can see kids enjoying their first day as a teen.
I can see an old couple experiencing a movie, without getting offended,
And I can definitely see the capable ones staying silent.
Why is it, we are suffering this intolerable violence?
It could be physical, it could be mental, lord knows what.
May be, it could be because, we have stopped caring about art.
Can passion change humans?
I still remember, a kid from my school, who danced with only one hand.
His passion definitely brought mine back to life,
And only thing that did bother me was, how much did he have to stive!

I sit down and watch the news,
All I see is bunch of people screaming, just for some views.
Defaming anyone they feel is guilty,
While they just randomly, sip tea and coffee.
Deconstructing rhymes and lines just to find something that is not right,
Well, don’t you read the disclaimer, that it’s a work of fiction, and not every word should be right!
If they do love critiquing, how good would they be in writing?
Amazing I believe, for they can create a fake story, which can destroy a man’s history.
I look around and think,
In this situation, can passion really sustain?
If it doesn’t, the work of many generations would be in vain.
For I can assure that passion can bring the change,
For the voice of it, can reach ears and eyes of even those who aren’t in range.

A blind can feel an art. A deaf can feel the music. A dumb can sing!
For there is nothing that can stop the passion within.
It’s like like the engine of the soul,
It’s the only thing that can help one reach their goal.
Getting up is never easy after they are down,
But when one has the passion,
They could easily win that crown.
But in reality, no one would want it,
For they know, they aren’t in for that.
I do say, passion can make every one a better person,
For it did teach me, the most important of lessons,
All you have to do in life, is keep going,
Even when you feel nothing has been moving.

I’ve been here for so long,
I don’t know how I ended being this strong!
I’ve seen things around me falling apart,
Calling me towards my unhappy past!
Loud, those noises may have been,
But, there is a lot throughout my journey, I have seen.
Holding on, staying strong, I know it’ll help me in going far!
All by my side was that one thing, the kept me hooked to that star!
My love for poetry, immeasurable it may be,
All I know, it made me believe in me!
All I know, it did make me free!
All it did, was prove how passion does matter in shaping in a destiny!

Everyday, all I pray, is for a future that I always wanted to see
A world where people rise above what they have been groomed to be,
More than a puppet, that is stuck in a routine,
Chasing something that they have created an illusion of in their dream!

Hope this poem helps you in any way! Oh, one person who could be an inspiration in this sense could easily be Beethoven. His love for music never left to cease even after his hearing ability began to deteriorate!

Do drop in your thoughts on this poem and will be back with another post soon! Like and share it, if you feel life here can get better!

Are we really living?

Trapped in my own soul,
Is this what I thought was my goal!
Certainly not, for doing that would only make me a fool!
Then where was the point I went wrong,
That’s a question for which an answer I’ve been wanting to find for long,
Alas, only if I had been strong.
While I say all these, all I can remember are those times,
Where all those dreams were young and everything seemed nice!
All I am left with, is a land filled with lies!
Running down the streams,
The irresistible feeling on my face, when I’m hit with a breeze!
Fighting all day and none getting offended,
Such days, now are just another dead end!

Trapped in my own soul,
Can’t find a single space, to get out of this black hole!
Everyday, I’ve been asking where I had gone away!
Yet, I still remember those days, when my imagination would go stray
And that would always make my day,
All I can see today is butts of cigarettes mixed with ash in the tray!
Coming back home while the clocks struck seven,
Delicious appetizers made hot by my mum, would always remind me of a time that was truly a heaven!
Those were some days, when innocence was a great trait,
Happiness and love never had any template!

Can I get back my childhood,
For now that I stand where my parents stood,
Looking up to my parents,
Today I realise all that they’ve done for me,
Has a value that no one can ever see!
I only hope people would realise this too,
Looking through these characters and illusions!
Living in fear from the senseless superstitions!

Today I fear for every time I try to rhyme,
For getting laughed at is a feeling worse than getting caught for a crime,
But as a child, I would have said things without any filter,
And everything would would be straight from the heart, that I always said without any stutter!
Even if the world laughed, I’d be proud that I had spread laughter,
For every thing around me, makes me want to slaughter!Can I get back that childhood of mine,
Where all I had was love and smile!
By the time you read this, I’d be away
Where there’s an everlasting day!

Been trapped in my own soul,
All that happened because, I never let the child in me become whole!
At that moment I knew,
And I say this to you;
If you had to live for someone,
Live for that child in you!
For he hoped a great deal of you!

In the end, keeping that child in us alive could help us survive!

Let me know your thoughts on this! Will be back with another great post!

You are the beacon of light. 

Lie, steal, kill and rape.

Is this what defines us now?

Humans have fallen so low,

Are we so afraid, that our need will never be satisfied?

Small amount of patience, for us, is not suffice.

Spreading rumours about that person and body-shaming everyone,

And then, there’s racism, that every human loves to ignore.

I’ve not touched sexist ego that has filled the globe,

With this attitude, humanity may never go forward.

Stealing, hating and fighting.

From the two great wars, have we learned nothing.

Is jealousy, so hard to control,

That it turns to a killing spree?

Hatred is just the absence of love,

Is this too soft, to go through your hard-headed skull?

Control your lust, for there is no bigger sin,

To rape and live as if nothing happened.

To overlook everything that happens amidst us,

What would you do, if it were you in that place?

Stay silent, or fight for justice?

The system may not work, but we can change it,

Because, change is not a small time occuring.

We will fall, in the journey,

But never lose hope,

Get up and fight for what matters,

You’ll be hated, you’ll be criticised,

It will be a matter of time when they realise.

Until then, never let anyone decide what is right for you,

Because this is the only fight that matters, you know it too.

Are we so lazy to fight for what’s worthy?

Get your basics right, and start to live for humanity,

Stop fighting amongst yourself and help every one get justice,

Because, only an act of humanity can bring peace.

Homo-sapiens, we call ourselves,

Where is that manliness of yours when you do such acts?

Every voice matters in this fight,

Because, you are that beacon of light,

And you are the one to bear the mark of might.

Thank you so much for everyone who is fighting for humanity and peace. You people deserve all the respect. I hope everyone realises the worth of humanity and peace. Because, that is the only need. Will be back with another post, until then BeLive, #LIVEyOURLIFE and #StandUpForHumanity.

Words mend life

“I’ll be there for you till the end.” A promise that brought him back to life.

IMG_20171217_230336_534

Words, simple they seem, but dangerous they are;
It can break a man’s heart, but can also take him far.
Life haunted him everyday,
Death wanted him in every way.

Choice, remained a myth to him,
And his entire life started to dim.
Never had he thought, he would end up like this,
Broken and soulless, like death giving him a kiss.

In the morning, with every sip of coffee
He would feel, people around him were zombies.
Before hitting the bed, every night,
To live or to die, he had to decide.

He wasn’t always like this,
It all started with small things.
Fights, ignorance and rejections,
Leading to bigger ones like death and demotions.

He thought, he had lost it all,
No ear was open for all this to be heard.
He decided to give up, but then he turned back
And was it a coincidence that he did?

No, life has a plan and there was one for him too,
He saw her and he saw his life calling him too,
And the following words were enough to make his heart melt,
“I’ll be there for you till the end.”

Life may be difficult, but don’t make it short. You’ll face challenges you are not ready for, but that doesn’t make you weak. It makes you stronger.

Will be back with another amazing post, until then, LIVE yOUR LIFE and LIFT others HIGHER.

Never Quit!!

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to try just one more time!!”
~ Thomas A. Edison

Hey People!! Just imagine, you’re going to your dream destination (let’s name it Destination D) and you start from Destination A. You keep going, and all of a sudden you stop at C, and you realise that the fuel tank is empty. What would you do at this situation?
a) Return home (which is really far)
b) Sit there and cry.
c) Go and fill the tank and keep moving forward and live your life-long dream..

The best thing to do would be to fill your tank and keep moving.

The same thing applies in one’s life too. You might not know how close you are to success. It doesn’t hurt if you face obstacles during your journey. That’s life. You cannot succeed everytime. Edison is the best example I could give. The more you fail, the more you learn.

“You have not succeeded, if you haven’t failed even once”

Every thing would have a positive and negative effect. If you only look at the negative side of everything, how will you even think of moving forward? If you don’t have the faith in a thing, how would you even work with it? If you think that something you really wanted to do as a child, reqiures huge money and time and hard work or anyother excuse you could make of, how do even you expect to live your life? Don’t blame it to the fate!! Only when you give some of your effort, you would go ahead. And when you reached the destination, you would look back and think why you were such a stubborn person and unwilling to follow your dreams. Only when you follow your dreams, you would be happily successful. If you follow other’s dream, you would be successfully happy! It’s your life. You must choose what you want to be in life!!

“If you look for the light in evrything, you would often find it. But if you look for the dark, that is all you will ever see.”
~ Uncle Iroh.

You must be consciously and subconsciously aware of the life you want!
Because:

“Your mind can be your greatest ally or your worst enemy!”
~ Katara from Legend of Korra

Everything in life depends on what you think, how you react to every situation and your determination.

“Winners never quit and quitters never win.”
~ Vince Lombardi.

You might feel deterred to fear of failure. You might feel failing would make you some devil of the society.
This is the thing what the current education system has gifted us. It doesn’t let us make mistakes. Only when you make mistakes, you would learn from it. Instead we are punished for making mistakes.
No man is perfect.
Life is a game, sometimes one wins and the rest lose, but there’s always a second chance. You learn new things every time.

“If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit”
~ William J. Clinton

A scientist doesn’t discover anything in his first attempt, it takes him hundreds of experiments to do it.

“Even in despair, you must never give in to the situation and only that refers to inner strength!”
~ Uncle Iroh.

Never abandon hope.

Never give up.

Never quit.

I have a small poem on this:

An unending journey

I was abandoned,
I was tortured,
Only because I wanted to do something of my own.
So, I left my home.
People hated me,
Only because I wanted to be free.
I couldn’t bear this and I started a small journey..

I travelled places and learned about different cultures,
And that got rid of my prior tortures.
People said that was the end, but I did not hear.
People wanted me to fear,
And wanted me to shed a tear,
But I didn’t bother and chased my destiny,
And all this made it an amazing journey..

I trusted the Lord and trusted my soul,
To achieve my life-long goal.
The child in me was about to die,
But I dared to keep it alive.
Everything I did bothered the society,
But I just did my work patiently.
There were many things I learned from the selfless people I met,
Spreading peace and living happily that was what the life meant.
They taught me one thing and asked me to spread it to every clan,
Life is a simple maze,
People who feared have made it a big race.
Live a life in a way no one else can,
Because Time and Tide wait for no man.
This is why I left my home,
An unending journey, only that could have made my life whole.
I thank the Lord for giving me the freedom,
Without that, those messages, I wouldn’t have learned.
An unending journey is a gift which can change your life,
Because the lessons you learn, would help you to thrive.
Never quit avid never give up,
That’s what you learn, if you wish to learn.
Take up an unending journey to follow your dreams,
Because, life is not what it may seem!

~ Amith Chhabria.

P.S.: The guy who started Victora’s Secret sold his company and jumped off a bridge before it became Victoria’s secret!
I’ll be back with another amazing post, until then follow your dreams and never give up and just LIVE yOUR LIFE!
