Things might not always seem bright,
You might feel the end of the tunnel has no light,
But do not lose your faith upon Her,
She considers you strong, Mon cher.
Life will always give you highs and lows,
Our attitude decides who’s going to stay and who bows,
We have a long way to go,
And to the world we’ll show,
No matter how much the world puts us out,
We will always get up and go about.
All her life, she waited for the one,
Not glancing even once, at the ones who paused for her,
Around her, there was so much of joy and cheer,
Yet, she didn’t care enough for the ones near.
Soon the crowds passed by her,
Soon she was left standing alone,
With none to ask her how she was,
She began wondering who she was.
While she waited for her one big moment,
She never noticed those small, little ones,
That fill up the pages of life,
And make you want to revisit the memory lanes.
Wise enough to realize her folly,
She began the task of trudging uphill,
Warning every person who was going down,
To cherish what you get, rather than crying for what you want.
Consider yourself lucky that you’re still able to smile because there are many who’ve even lost that.
Life isn’t about the one big moment. It’s about the small, little moments which turn into your life story!
I sat by the window,
Looking out at the sky,
The forlorn bird flying across
The expanse of blue
Touching the chords of my heart.
The small, brown wonder circled around,
And perched atop the neighboring window.
As it shushed and looked around,
It seemed to mirror my state of mind.
How I longed to fly away,
To soar higher than ever
But day upon day,
The burden increased,
Bogging me down forever.
Another sparrow came and sat near,
The two chirping away,
I glanced at my empty beside,
While the pair made its’ way.
Alas! For me there was no escape,
The chains never seemed to unbind,
And so I sat there looking at the blue expanse,
Forlorn, more than ever.
Trying to locate the silver lining,
More hopeful than ever.
P.S.: You may not know it, but you make a big difference in my life, my thoughts, my being. Thank you so much! This is dedicated solely to you! Thank you, Aayush!
