A Tide, A Shore

The three musketeers, obviously inseparable
Even without knowing what to do at the table
Would always stick around like a brother
Even ending up just sitting beside each other

Two of them shared a special bond
Different backgrounds, still extremely fond
One never had to say a word
Even before that, it was heard

I had another association in between
Distances increased, the fondness still to be seen
When things ended, he came forward
With a big heart, he accepted the coward

Time passed, some amount accumulated
Even approximations varied, it was so backdated
But then each started on his own
Honestly, the expectation has grown  

An argument was how it was sorted
I was even rude, some words, dotted
But it was a significant bill
And he was still, still

Things, obviously not normal post that
But here is the bit I am stuck at
When I think I was no wrong
I already wrote a song

Another invitation was also not enough
Now he was in huff
But still in touch with the third
Who was never the giving bird

At this place, I halt
Where, who is at fault?
Should I have kept mum?
Should I have waited for the sum?

Should it not have mattered at all?
Or he should have anticipated the fall?
It has been to too long for me
But should I have let it be?

Questions in my head, the heart has a side
I was not be treated like a tide
I was always there to take you to the shore
But does not mean I was a whore

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
