What makes a life?

Image
"What makes a life?"- he asks
& continues...



"Life is about having survival sources,
Place for shelter, consistent resources,
Few relations, foes and friends...
Comfort means, technology & trends… Life is about walking on a beach...
Crafting footprints on the soaked sand...
Life is about sitting on terrace...
With moon and stars illuminating the land... Life is about the freedom of desires...
The sense of true feelings, the feel of true comforts...
Life is about the knowledge of reality...
Yet living in dreams, yet depending on thoughts... Life is about having sips of coffee...
Sitting in porch with someone special...
Life is about having someone to listen...
Someone who feels you are exceptional... Life is about building memories...
Valuing each moment, respecting each breath...
Life is about blending in serene smiles...
The one that remains even in the hour of death…"

"You have all of them" – he reminds me...
"Yet you wish to have a change!&quo…

I Set Myself Loose

Image
This frees me of the load…
the load of being ideal…
the struggle of reaching perfection
the series of self-evaluation… This brings me to peace…
a change in mentality…
the state of tranquility… As I see you taking shape…
As you turn concrete

As I see you change…
I tend to believe… You are not a dream….not any more….
I see you turn into reality… I find you ordinary…
with usual strengths & fears
with few rights and few errors… Now…I know…you are the one…
…one of those I meet everyday…

A face in crowd…whom I can identify… whom I know
… who is important to me and… who knows my flow… You are one of us...though... may be better…
...some say so... some tend to deter..
...a point where my judgement fails...
Yet… the fact prevails… You are not a dream anymore….

And this frees me of the load…
the burden of gratitude...
the pressure of meeting your altitude
Hence... I set myself loose...
