A Misunderstood Generation

Multiple affairs before the final draw
Loyalty may be a question mark
"I" more important than "we"
Selfish you may call us to be

Some odd habits, some addictions
But we want to live with them
This is our life, our design
We will still sail through

Yes, we are not the perfect ones
But don't even shy from the truth
Accepting the flaws and mistakes
A widely misunderstood generation

Norms, values, cultures we defy
But also establish new trends
Confident to always make it big
We always want to choose and pick

Craziest developments happening now
Wildest imaginations coming true
It is our minds and visions
That enable all, all of this

Not looking for acceptance
But can't even tolerate objection
We will surely change the face
But in our own way
At our own pace

My Pivot

The start itself is tough
And not because the road is rough
But because there is too much to say
Everything has limitations, even clay

But I will do my best
Put my skills to the real test
Thank you for all the love and care
Otherwise, I would have been bare

You have always held me tight
Given me hope future is bright
Always taught me to stay on the ground
And made sure pests do not hound

The concern in your voice
Leaves me with no choice
But to eat, sleep and rest on time
And drink water with lime :P

Your genuine advice helps me sail
Commit a crime, but out without bail
Even he could not create
Words that would satiate

But thank you again for one and all
For picking me up after every fall
With you as the oxygen of my life
I will win each and every strife

The First Step

Thinking of the time gone by
It did not even wait for a sigh
How could I have done more?
Even thinking makes a sore

I had too much to manage
Still could escape without damage
I think that in itself is a feat
That I could hold on my seat

Cut to this time frame
I am still the same
Development in all spheres is on
So what about the time gone?

Could I have done better?
Should I have become wetter?
Is it because of lack of trying?
I just let it pass, sighing

The inner voice shouts "Yes"
"But I was already living oncess
How could I have done better", I ask
It says "Finalise a task"

Some days of thought
Some time of drought
But then all makes sense
It is no longer dense

The first step is all that matters
The problem around me shatters
With a task at my hand
I sit, but this time to stand

Roots & Shoots

I am sure it is I Who wants to achieve a high I think, I plan, I do Leaving nothing to clue
The quality, desire is all mine I work even while I dine And then a ring of the bell My friend’s parents in our cell
Simple, smiling souls He serves the dinner in bowls The silence creates a noise What happened to the poise?
It is in front of my eyes The difference between the skies That is just the start Not even the main part
The contrast just grows The time around me slows I probably have very little to add It is all because of my dad
With his vision in my eyes My mom to remove the flies I embark on this journey of life Well sliced, but the knife?
It is all because of them The green leaf and the stem My act is just to follow All else is absolutely hollow
Now I always know Where do I get the glow? Two people, two roots Provided immense shoots
