Back To The Future

To be in love is like walking on the moon
Difficult to control yourself, swaying with the air
The world around you changes for the good
And you feel you can conquer it all

But then you land on the earth soon
Problems, in your face they glare
The beliefs on which “you” stood
The friends you used to call

“The happily after” seems far away
To keep her happy, you laugh through pain
Waking up till 4 am to calm her nerves
With no one to ask you about your red eye

She came in my life to stay
Probably I was not sane
It had nothing to do with the curves
But I never wanted to say good bye

I am still not over her, but I am far
I feel complete, I feel worthy, I feel I am back
Someday, I want her to get this fact
She will regret this, while I will forget it

What has remained is a deep scar
But life is back on the right track
I feel proud I was not sacked
And doused the fire, but not before it lit

I don’t want her to come back to me
I want her to value the person who loves her now
You would say I am still in love
But at least now, I know myself better

I want to thank her, I know you cannot see
She has changed my life, only I know how
Back to my long baths, back to what I love
What’s left, is just this letter

Just Keep At It

Does it feel like your own? Even when you are alone Do your fingers grasp it? Is it the best fit?
But you still in two minds Looking through those blinds My future, my present, my past Till when will this last?
Not enough support to ride on Seems like a distant dawn Let me take the “normal” way At least will know day by day
Then, somewhere deep inside “I also don’t want to hide This is where I belong This is what I long”
So here, take my word Need not to go with the herd If there is enough fire Be sure, you will never tire
Just keep at it, don’t drop it Progress begins bit by bit The clouds will surely move You just be in the groove
Some years later, you look back “This is where I changed my track” Not only you, but others around Even those, you used to hound

Nothing & Everything

As the flight takes off
So does my though
Is this me on the top?
Or am I just a prop

Priorities, goals have changed
Probably even I ain't the same
Giving it all I have, all my might
But will that alone suffice?

The people, conditions also matter
The timing, situation all have a role
How much will I be able to account?
Will I be able to turn it around?

Nothing and everything is right
Opportunities, options abound
Listeners and actions I doubt
Do I stay and change, or is it lame

Will all these questions in my mind
Answers I still can't decide Meanwhile, flight is sailing smooth
And that harbingers a change

Maybe it is the initial struggle
Maybe it is that first thrust
Then it is you above the cloud
A smooth sail, a monitored ride

Best Left Unanswered?

Should I ask these questions? What exactly is happiness? Is this what we are really chasing? When do we know we are there?
It is just an internal feeling? Do we just know we are “happy”? Do love, success contribute? Or does it lead to them?
Is it there at the destination? Are we moving towards it? Or we have to move with it? Is it intrinsic to the path?
Are all these questions irrelevant? It is best left unanswered? Do the answers cause the confusion? Or there is light at the end of this tunnel?
