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

I Promise Once Again

A thousand thoughts in my head
Should I just go to bed? Never mind, one is no big deal And so, there goes the seal
A lighter I bought long ago I will stop at just one blow But just for the urge to stop Force myself to go to a shop
Can that make me wait It is too late But then, it has been long Especially with my favorite song
So I get up, grab my shirt Wait, I will come back and flirt A long walk in the scorching heat Ends on an uncomfortable seat
An exchange of familiar looks Free from all the hooks The lighter lightens one end And I find a secluded bend
That feeling grabs me again The effort, no longer a pain This is surely my last Like the promises of the past
I begin to walk back Feels as if I am carrying a sack Why did I falter? Just tell me, how I can alter?

Go Ahead, Stop

My fingers, my mind, my emotions Same body and different notions Multiple questions, multiple reasons Something to do with the change of seasons?
An eternity has already passed A lot of wisdom amassed But has all been in vain? Does it all go down the drain?
Now the fingers take over Lead by emotions? Give me a break I type the name, type the number Something wakes me out of slumber
I know I should delete Problems will be replete I convince life is better now I remember the old vow
“You will not do this ever again All you got was immense pain” Reasons aside, I still march ahead Number saved and enough said
When was the last seen? Where, how she has been? All answers absolutely futile But the doubts still pile
Deleting it, I make a swear “I have to take care I can’t afford to do this It takes away my bliss”
Yes, she was wrong Yes, she took my song Yes, I am over it Getting repaired bit by bit
Then comes another day Promises made of clay Till when will this go on? Am I only a pawn?

Bow & Arrow

He was born to be a player
And what about the other layer?
She was born to be a writer
And what about the fighter?

But do you know the way they are?
They have come so far
Surely they had it in them
They were born to be a gem

The start itself being wrong
It was their own song
Try to sing it once and know
It does not just go

Yes, the end is their own
But what about the seeds sown
The toil to ensure they blossom
Yes, finally, life is awesome

All wishing for a similar end
But turning back on seeing a bend
Keep walking and soon you will know
The arrow is as important as the bow
