A Closet, My Mind

My back against a bed
Slight dizziness in my head
I enter a big white machine
Life, losing its sheen

The reports come out
No chance, without a doubt
A heartbroken, dejected step
When I experience a wrest

Words cut through the noise
He stands with a poise
“What, what is wrong
Have seen you for long”

“I have no more than 90 days”
Still the same, he says
“You must be around twenty five
Let us take a deep dive

How many days you know
That still make you glow”
A long pause, I can’t say
“30 as of today!”

Irritated I shun him off
“Please to the point” I scoff
Simple response “Okay fine
Still, 3 lives in line”

By the take I make sense
I wake up, all tense
Yes, it was a dream
I eat my favourite ice cream

The situation was not there
Thank god, thanks for the care
But the thought lingers on
25 years have gone

Assets in closet, memories in mind
Only one I could bind
The direction probably needs to alter
Real situation, I cannot falter

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

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?

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
