Real Life

It’s been 4 years since i graduated,

4 years of hardship and struggle,

Struggle not in finding a job,

It’s the decisions I’ve taken and things that I’ve done

*

Struggle in the field of “Life”,

Hardship in the field of “Love”,

Struggle in the field of “Success”,

Now, Failure is all that i have

*

Life never seemed so different,

Hope never seemed so far fetched,

Love never felt so distant,

It seems like the only truth now.
*

I’ve taken a decision to change,

But I’ve done so couple of times,

Lost is my faith in myself,

Faith to defy everything & follow my heart

*

I hope no one suffers like me,

If you do i’ll pray for you too,

But trust me when i say it,

There’s always hope and i’ll keep trying until i’m done

*

Tell me if you feel like this too,

Keeping it to yourself won’t help you,

There’s always someone willing to listen,

Like right now listening to me is you

-Self

Lost Cause

Today i realized it’s too late,

To change what i’ve become,

Time just passed so fast,

I didn’t notice that i succumbed

Someone told me life’s like that,

There isn’t any moment to pause,

But this fact didn’t help me,

Because I’ve become a lost cause

But then i met someone close to my heart,

She made me realize how cheerful i once was,

She reconciled me with my hopeful past,

My sister really did know me up close

Now there’s a dim light shinning ahead,

I can see it even if i’m far away,

Now I guess a new journey has begun,

One i thought couldn’t exist any way

Life is just like that,

One moment you are cheerful,

Another you are not,

But one thing never changes,

Spirit to rise again and begin from the start.

Signal Fire By Snow Patrol

This song/video bring many nostalgic memories back and they feel so fresh as if it just happened yesterday.

In many ways, its more of a poetic expression then just song. Think About it.

Enjoy!

Life As We Show It

Posted on

Life isn’t just a struggle,

Its also a mystery,

The way its sometimes unfolds,

Gives rise to a Great History

Page by Page it turns,

A new chapter is always unveiled,

Whats gonna be its ending,

Nobody, but you can reveal

As We Can’t light a bulb if its fused,

We Can’t use our mind if its bemused,

We Can’t consume something if not produced,

And We Can’t live happily if we are confused

Giving a purpose to life,

Should be one’s ultimate aim,

Rest of the world can wait,

Because your universe is what you create

Life is not mere existence,

Life is not just how we know it,

Life happens when we feel it,

Its also “Life As We Show It”

New Beginning

Posted on

I wake up every morning,
With everything like the night before,
Though I expect it to be different,
But my expectations fails me like always.

It’s been days nay months,
Since I felt some happiness deep inside,
Happiness that would give me some hope,
Hope to go out there and feel bliss within.

There was a time when I was fearless,
Fearless of whatever the future holds,
Those were the days of joy,
Those were the days I was actually born.

I believe there’s still a reason,
Reason for which I look for,
I’m looking for it in the darkest corner,
Darkest corner of my heart and more.

Reason to survive,
Reason to hold on,
Reason to look towards the bright future,
And reason to expect only better for all.

Today I woke up like always,
But this time there was something different,
I’ve found the reason to carry on,
Atlast, it’s a new day and new beginning.

William Blake: A Complete Artist

Posted on

William Blake, a Poet and an Artist, was one of the largely unacknowledged artist of his era but now he is one of Britain’s most celebrated artist. He is known to be from the “Romantic Age” era and has composed many many beautiful pieces of art works( whether poems or visual art).

I’ve been a fan of his poetry lately and few of my favourites are, The Chimney Sweeper, The Little Black boy, The Divine Image, The Earths Answer, The Eternity and so on. I’ve written down a few of them below for your perusal. Not many poets have the power to attract and capture the fellow art lovers in their philosophical interpretations through the use of mere words in form of poetry but William Blake definitely has this skill.

Eternity
He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity’s sun rise.

A Divine Image
Cruelty has a human heart,
And Jealousy a human face;
Terror the human form divine,
And Secresy the human dress.

The human dress is forged iron,
The human form a fiery forge,
The human face a furnace sealed,
The human heart its hungry gorge.

I would love to know that which such Artist has been close to your heart and then perhaps i will find them intriguing as well.

Happy Writing!

Spirits-101

Wine, Whiskey , Scotch or Beer,

Some are translucent, sparking or crystal clear,

*

Getting a bottle of Champaign,

Costs almost like a campaign.

*

Dinner with some Wine,

Shows that you are doing just fine.

*

Beer if had more than a pint or two,

One can solve any problem through and through.

*

Small quantity of good old Whiskey,

Even makes talking seem risky.

*

Few sips of some nice Scotch,

Takes your thinking up a notch.

*

Give me some tasty Rum,

I’ll even disco to the beats of drums

*

Go ahead have some Gin,

Checkout a mirror, you’ll see yourself Grin

*

Have some of these from time to time,

But making it a habit is a crime.
