Trusting the process!!!

Running for success through days n nights

We hide from dark, in search light.

What’s the use of one when the other’s never faced

How to bless peace when fight never aced.

.

If the life was a smooth, silky little road

With no bumps or humps, without any load

Wonder will you learn a journey any worth

Better is a toad’s life in bounded earth.

.

It’s the setback that teaches patience

And the problems ask not to hasten

Though an unknown way, but still on the move

Will discover my pass, will learn my groove.

Let go!!

1
I’ve grown out and broken your spell
Free as a bird, destined to marvel.
.
Your wickedness and foul play, left behind
Vileness now doubled as echoed and repelled.
.
Confound in devilry, with a mark of Cain
You are a prisoner of mind who’s hard to impel.
.
A farewell, a departure, a covert blessing
Such a finale, tale love to retell.
.
Found that peace of soul and beyond
All  knots untied, nothing to unravel.
.
My destiny, way ahead; my journey though long
But far from treachery, & bound to excel.

Two Realities!!

 tulips
Two realities come tagged in life, 
Choices n Change, as constant drive.
Inevitable choices are & important change is;
It’s choice budding change or change sprouting choices.
Opportunities and possibilities bring hopes big,
Fate was beyond control, but choice is our pick.
So stay calm and opt the best;
Making world worth living for self n rest.

Stories!!

kjlllllllll
The tingle while riding air
Tasting flavors of life everywhere,
Receiving praise of grandeury
Remember? There’s an end to all glory
Everyone is living a story.
.
It’s love that takes hype
Or hate, consuming life,
Day s in n out all same
On recall many shades; some cushy, other gory
Everyone is living a story.
.
Some come with family name;
Others with tribe to flaunt fame,
Some torch (people) houses, others light hope flame,
Choices make some shame, others proud with glory
Everyone is living a story.

Lemons & Life!!

Crossed and hurt, never had enough
While others rewarded in galore.
Don’t feel bad when served lemons
Squeeze them well, and ask for more.
.
It happens to us all
So continue whatever is yours
No stopping for others conjecture
Can’t gauge your worth, better Ignore.
.
Can shine, don’t need sparkles
Accent mounts others dare explore
Be the window with a unique view
A bold key to open feared doors.
.
You will course through stormy seas
Swim very hard to reach clear shore
Road can be long & course very crooked
But struggle never futile or useless anymore.

A West side Story

Fears irrational, dwellers of mind

Timid & uncertain with horrors unknown

Doubts need time to scatter, dispel

And vagueness space, before it’s gone.

.

Alien it was, found best resolve

Was empty-handed, now with fortune overload

There’s a light after every dark spell

A beacon so clear, its glow foretold.

.

Insight’s mine, awareness home

Wisdom’s a flame, burns bright and high

An odyssey of life, with self discovery

It’s prudence and truth, one can’t deny.

Historical echo!! (A Poem)

Dive into books & permeate Past
It’s  same story with action replayed
Heard of history repeating itself?
Was negligence by us, & time relayed.
.
One civilization ascents high
Wealth and blessings are at peaks
But morals fall and standard lows
When line in Right & Wrong bleaks.
.
Society is there but essence lost
Collaboration it was, usurped Greed
Violence and fear danced with glee
Children of era swallow such seeds.
.
Would snatch whatever they want
No rules applicable or mores logical
What been taught, what been seen
Society contagious & pathological.
.
 Rich living in castles and enclaves
Obsessed with money, buying in tens
Still despondent and hungry
Paranoia high, fear never ends.
.
Nothing would fill their bellies
As world is cursed with Greed
Lessons discovered by those
Who remember, think and read.
.
For rest, its repetitions and replays
 History was past, will be their coming
A nightmare bound to recur every night
A plague once broken, or tsunami forth coming.

What Goes Around Comes Around- A True Story

1892, Stanford University

A young, 18-year-old student was struggling to pay his fees. He was an orphan, and not knowing where to turn for money, he came up with a bright idea. A friend and he decided to host a musical concert on campus to raise money for their education.

They reached out to the great pianist Ignacy J. Paderewski. His manager demanded a guaranteed fee of $2000 for the piano recital. A deal was struck. And the boys began to work to make the concert a success.

The big day arrived. Paderewski performed at Stanford. But unfortunately, they had not managed to sell enough tickets. The total collection was only $1600. Disappointed, they went to Paderewski and
explained their plight. They gave him the entire $1600, plus a cheque for the balance $400. They promised to honour the cheque soonest possible.

“No.” said Paderewski. “This is not acceptable.” He tore up the cheque, returned the $1600 and told the two boys “Here’s the $1600. Please deduct whatever expenses you have incurred. Keep the money you need for your fees. And just give me whatever is left” The boys were surprised, and thanked him profusely.

It was a small act of kindness. But it clearly marked out Paderewski as a great human being. Why should he help two people he did not even know?
We all come across situations like these in our lives. And most of us only think “If I help them, what would happen to me?” The truly great people think, “If I don’t help them, what will happen to them?” They
don’t do it expecting something in return. They do it because they feel it’s the right thing to do.
Paderewski later went on to become the Prime Minister of Poland. He was a great leader, but unfortunately when the World War began, Poland was ravaged. There were over 1.5 million people starving in his country, and no money to feed them. Paderewski did not know where to turn for
help. He reached out to the US Food and Relief Administration for help.

The head there was a man called Herbert Hoover – who later went on to become the US President. Hoover agreed to help and quickly shipped tons
of food grains to feed the starving Polish people. A calamity was averted.

Paderewski was relieved. He decided to go across to meet Hoover and personally thank him. When Paderewski began to thank Hoover for his noble gesture, Hoover quickly interjected and said, “You shouldn’t be thanking me Mr. Prime Minister. You may not remember this, but several years ago, you helped two young students go through college in the US .
I was one of them.”

The world is a wonderful place. What goes around usually comes around.
