Confusion and Conclusion


Once was I, like an aimless ship;
Wandering upon the vast blue sea.
Then came my way this interesting flip,
That claimed to know how I'm supposed to be.
I changed my course,
And went behind.
It was a radiant force
That is one of a kind.
I discovered hitherto unknown things,
Interesting and truthful.
With it came some mood swings,
Sometimes serious but mostly playful.

In this journey of self-discovery,
I gained many a wonderful experience,
From my problems I got recovery
And added to my life many worthwhile ingredients.
Should I follow it forever?
Or should I be alone?
I had to be clever,
So I shifted to my safe zone.
I'm a man with a mind,
That keeps constantly changing.
As life begun to unwind,
I wanted to see something encouraging.

The path is completely divine,
It calls for unconditional sacrifice.
With this swaying nature of mine,
It becomes difficult to finalize.
Pursuing one's passions,
Will multiply his happiness.
Living life in this fashion,
Can make one forget his loneliness.
That's just what I did,
Returned to my old ways.
I opened my heart's lid,
Letting in the sun's new rays!

Stop and Smell the Roses

The sight of a raindrop falling on water,
Brings a smile to my face.
My worries move away too,
Like the concentric ripples.

Green leaves drenched in rain,
Paint a picture of impeccable beauty.
My heart delights greatly,
Seeing the squirrel spray the water off its fur.

The droplet of water on the big lotus leaf,
Sparkles like a pearl on green velvet.
What more do I need?
When beauty greets me wherever I go.

The howl of the gentle breeze,
Sounds like Kenny.G's sax to my ears.
The pitter-patter of the raindrops,
Adds beautiful beats to the song.

Life's just beautiful,
I've enjoyed it always and even now.
Ask me the reason for this bliss,
And I'd say it is love.
