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

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?
