Have you ever reckoned the possibility?
That life and people are seldom picture perfect
There’s always room and space for fallibility
Have you ever considered the possibility?
That all your hatred, venom and animosity
Will eventually end up in only futility….
Have your considered the possibility?
That it isn’t all you have and all you conquered
That gives you a sense of triumph
Your life is the sum of your perception and sensibility
Have your ever chewed over the possibility
That sometimes you just need to let go
And slide with life’s irrevocable flow
Embracing all that waves of time and tide
Bring in with their inevitability
Reflecting on life’s each decision
I ask myself an inevitable question
What if I had traversed another path?
Would there have been another aftermath?
Had I heeded another voice?
Would that have changed my choice?
That is when it did dawn on me
Life’s a peculiar intertwine tween choice and destiny
What came my way wasn’t because I wanted it to
It wasn’t there just out of the blue
Everything that comes our way
Has a lesson that needs to stay
With us in the sojourn called life
All uncertainty, challenge and strife
Wasn’t entirely futile or hollow
Rather it had a deep message
Which we need to follow
Boulders and rocks in our path
Are meant to show
Us the beacon light
That helps us grow
As individual and shine bright
When the soul is riddled with a strange sense of restlessness
When you can perceive the beacon light in stark darkness
When the mind is firm and finds balance
When you discover your own cadence
It’s time to embark on a voyage of breathing life into your dreams
It’s time to flow with the change of gushing streams
If you haven’t found your cause
Then just ponder and pause
To find something worthwhile
which can make a difference by a mile
To discover a hunger to transform
To find direction in the raging storm
To discover a passion that is eternal
To unearth one’s inner kernel
Caught in a vortex of conflicting emotions
Between volatility of volcanoes and tranquility of oceans
Between the despondency of darkness and buoyancy of light
Between the lucidity of day and inscrutability of night
Between the impermeability of rocks and porosity of sand
Between fickleness of air to tenacity of land
Between joie de vivre to sheer temperance
Why let passions eclipse our existence?
There are curves and bends
There are ups and downs
This journey seldom ends
on an expected note
The twists are many at every turn
You burn your fingers and then learn
A moonless night gives way to dawn
Sometimes fear, sometimes faith is born
This journey is what you make of it
It’s a passage that is built bit by bit
When you choose a path to tread for life
Just keep walking on in peace and strife
Life is an expedition for the fittest
Just take it head on and give it your best !
