A reason why you don’t feel like using the ‘tried and tested’
It works for others, but you’re sure..this one…will not work for you
Everyone,especially your loved ones suggest,
See, this worked for ‘x’ and ‘c’
You must try this, and this time with determination!!!
No one gets you, for a reason!
They’re different than you,for a reason..
They say it,cuz they’re expecting RESULTS
Predictable n stable
Something fickle they assume will last forever
And keep you happy..
Yeah!!! That’s the main reason..
Everyone wants to see you happy,
With money or atleast some fixed income
N wants you Married ( so that u share your joys with another you can call your own)
N then wants you to have kids..
How can you not have them??? (They say)
N if you’re a guy, they want you to have a tension free job
N if you’re a woman, they wish that you be able to cook the best dishes
And feed your spouse and kids, n family
If you’re a kid,they want you to do well at school
And then at college, probably ENGINEERING ( they think it makes you happy LOL)
And then they wish you have a stable job..
And spouse n kids….hahahaha
What ever happened to creativity and imagination..
Well, they’re our loved ones, and probably
The only way they know to love is
To worry about our joys and happiness
And probably see us ‘settled’ in a way they know to be ‘settled’
That’s them.. and we love them
With our rebellious hearts, in rebellious ways..
They may feel, we care less
But that’s how we care!!!
We care more by caring less..
That’s the only way we know
To bridge the gap
There was a time, gaps were bridged by
Putting oneself last
And putting the other first
That’s an unknown for the new generation
They know how to care for everyone, but they must come first
Cuz if they’re full and overflowing,
They have a lot to pour out from..
Emptiness is a cliché
Or may be not!!
It’s a way of knowing what’s whole..
It’s our way of experimenting
Knowing empty so we can know full!!
Know emptiness from up close, hungrily demanding abundance..
So loud and clear, that the call is answered..
And look for signs that acknowledge our abundance
Like the air we breathe..isn’t supplied in tanks..
It’s out there for us to inhale..
Like the oceans endless
Our eyes tire, but the oceans don’t..
The earth, accommodating all of us lovingly..
We’re a happier folks like the ones before..
And the ones before that n the ones before..
The news says otherwise and I guess that’s their job
It’s their job to seek chaos as efficiently as ever
And veil the well being
But for us, who never read
The world is still a happy and peaceful place
That starts and ends at our desk, or in the quarter of our room
But most importantly
Radiates out of our heart
The desire to be ‘whoever’ we choose
Irrespective of the ‘settling’ demands of our loved ones
We carefree souls
Trust more than our hearts admit
Love knows no control
It simply exists and allows
Allows all well being that exists
N let’s it grow
Everything is wellbeing
Even the perceived lack of it..
That makes it real easy for us to choose..
Whatever we choose,is wellbeing..
Whether perceived or not..
And if you’re smarter, you’d rather choose well being itself
than the lack of it..
As I’ve heard ‘you are so free that you can even choose bondage’
And it would be granted as freedom..
It’s too simple to be decoded
N it gets as complex as can be..
Enjoy the meaning you find in it..
And don’t bother to match it with others..
It’s meant to be ‘yours’ the way you found it
