Not even a bump on the way, my speed knows no restrain
All material desires and hungers, life has quenched
Not a single reason, she has given me to complain
If there exists a barometer of happiness
My indicator will shoot through the roof unchallenged
The surge of bliss and storm of peace
Roll down my eyes, tears of grateful joy no sorrowful mess
Whenever I needed some support and care
Many a hands and hearts from oblivion came
Whenever I needed to vent and be heard
A kin, a kind stranger came by, to help me lay my heart bare
To be born to a mom, steadfast as a rock
She is one big reason, making me Me
Through her I learnt, to let go but not give up
That life is never unfair, but for our own biases and that mental block
Why then, on some peaceful mornings, does my heart cringe?
Out of guilt and unworthiness, do I even deserve this joy?
Life has been the greatest teacher, but a good student am I?
When you get, you must give back, I till now have only been on a binge
Death is imminent, an ode to life, her grace and treasure
A journey we’ll all make into the sublime that knows no measure
But before I embark on these adventures of ‘morrow
Please oh Shiv, let me touch a life, make a day, take some pain and leave some pleasure!
ॐ शान्ति |
