Us, We & He

A group of friends
Sitting around, in a circle
They chat, laugh, cry together
It is only about those friends, those people
Thoughts, opinions begin to match with time
Connections only seem to grow stronger
Not realising they are connected on a much deeper level
They go with the flow
The once invisible influences now come to the fore
While they can be positive or negative
Just that the latter stick easily, are adapted more readily
While 'he' does not fathom the change
It is sure that something is not the same
The focus, perseverance, determination have all dulled in the background
He probably does not even notice 

It is only people around him that do
Making him understand is tough so we switch to what may have caused it
A short and crisp explanation suffices
'You are only the average of five people closest to you'

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

Away & Stay

As the numbers on the calendar change The feeling is a little strange Not because I had a bad year Not because something was left Some subtle but noteworthy alterations I don’t know it is the new me Or even how much is even under my control But things start from a very basic level The people I was partying with last year The inbox clutter that was The calls that mattered back then The birthday I was planning for Most of the changes are for the good Sorry, all the changes are for the good Some things I decided to miss Others I am glad I could But still the thought lingers in my head Will next year again be so away And will this thought still stay?
