ONCE AGAIN!

I don’t want to live once again…

Advertisements

A streak of light hits my face
and I relinquish my sweet sleep
as I awaken to believe once again
that dreams are interim and not to keep.

The world moves at such a fast pace.
I tend to crumble – time and again.
Humans overpower humans in this rat race
just for wealth, power, and fame.

Sometimes, I expect to see changed days,
believing everything will be good once again.
But ‘once again’ is just another phrase;
I’d already lost even before I began.

So no more tries and no more lies.
No more fake smiles and ‘once agains’.
I just want to make sure before I die
that I’ve lived – I don’t want to live once again.

Answers to Life

Problems with life?
Read and see if this poem can help you find some answers to your problems.

Sometimes, I sit just to think,

And fill a blank paper with ink.

Questions I have – lots to ask,

All I want is to unveil the mask.

 

As simple as it can be, let me begin,

With this question, “Why does the earth spin?”

But wait, I’m not going to answer that,

Let’s talk not about science but abstract.

 

Okay then, here is the first question,

Why is there always a quick end to fun?

Why can’t we always remain happy?

Why do things need to be scrappy?

 

I know not how valuable it is,

To have fun without toil but with ease.

What is the value of the sun without the rain?

What is happiness if you don’t know pain?

 

Why do we have to depart?

Why do people suddenly break your heart?

Why do relationships come to an end?

Why do we lose many a friend?

 

What is a reunion without a separation?

What is a heartbreak with a preparation?

You lose someone to meet someone new,

Many may leave but true friends stay with you.

 

Why don’t good things stay forever?

Where does God live, if he lived ever?

Why are some people dark and some fair?

Who has seen heaven to describe what’s there?

 

Without black, does white have any meaning?

Good things live in your heart – stop looking at the ceiling,

There’s no heaven, nor is there hell.

It is your state of mind; only that I can tell.

 

Why are there so many fights?

Why don’t we see during the night?

Why are we so afraid to die,

When we know that life is but a lie?

 

Peace is sometimes invisible like the star,

At times, it hides in the veil of war.

Death comes to us only once, eventually,

But we are cowardly, living death every day perpetually.

Dreaming about that time!

I’ve been dreaming a lot. Let me come out of my dreams with a dreamy article.

How many times have I fallen asleep? How many times have I dreamt? I have lost count by now. Some dreams have brought a smile on to my face while some have been nightmarish. Some dreams I could recollect and some I couldn’t. Some dreams I shared with others while some I didn’t. But there have been some dreams that have etched onto my brain as a part of my life. I love to call them my daydreams.

I have always dreamt of becoming a great, inspirational, and knowledgeable person. I have dreamt of helping people become great and rich – in virtues, knowledge, and morale. I have dreamt of people loving each other as if there were no borders, cultures, races, religions, or genders. I have always had this dream that one day all the people of the world will come together and say, “Enough is enough. We just want peace and nothing more.” I dream, dream, and keep on dreaming of a future so bright that even our great grandchildren would be able to dream of beautiful things that the world has to offer. I am still dreaming as I type every single character in this keyboard and see my thoughts getting printed on this white digital sheet of paper.

I know that dreams are temporary. I understand that not all dreams come true. But I believe that dreams have the power to change us and the environment around us. So, why stop dreaming? Still, I know that it requires a lot of dreamers like me to see a change in this world. I can see that it isn’t easy to change the world; rather it is very difficult as people these days have already immersed themselves into the race for money, pride, fame, and lust. Yet, I have been dreaming. I can’t stop dreaming. I won’t stop dreaming.

That’s why I have been dreaming about that time when my dream will come true. Peace.

A(we)MEND

A billion wishes, million prayers, and tens of thousands of visits are a part of one of the very important constituent elements of the world – Religion. While some people turn their backs to it and some dig deep so as to never returning from spirituality, I have always been in awe in this regard. Choosing between belief and disbelief, one form and another, one religion and the other is always a thorny issue. It isn’t simply an issue for someone as an individual; it is rather an issue based on parenthood, social beliefs, education, and myriads of other issues. That’s why religion makes me think, it keeps me in awe.
