Miracles

Do miracles really exist?

Have heard so much about them,
Read about them in stories,
Watched in movies,
Seen in a few people's life as well...
But are they real,
Or they plain illusions of making the present seem out of league,
Only to return to normal or worse very soon,
But on a different level, miracles might exist,
Just because there were great men,
Men of courage and valour,
Who chose to not give up in the face of adversity,
But to face it and turn it favourable,
Am I one such?
Are you?

Whose fault is it?

Is it my fault?
That my horoscope keeps shifting its patterns,
Handled by different people, in different ways,
It is a walking, talkng human you just denied,
For something so shifty in its ways,
What about the promise you made,
You are breaking it for something so ungrounded,
It isn't fair,
I was once denied my happiness for exactly the opposite of what u believe in right now,
Whose fault is it?
Maybe Krishna's...
But He has given up on me too...
Probably I never mattered to Him,
But He was all I cared for,
I thought He always cared,
Guided me towards what is right,
But that wasn't so...
Why was I even born, why am I still alive!

The stone

I can feel the sorrow, 
It is no more just an emotion,
It is an integral part of me,
Occupying major part of my insides,
Like a stone,
Making my chest heavy,
Obstructing my primary functions,
Not allowing my blood to flow, the air to circulate,
Is it just years of pent up unhappiness?
Is it a symbol of hopelessness?
Or is it my heart that just turned to stone?

Love - Give and take

All that the world is ever truly after is Love. People might disagree and say it is money or fame or greatness. But all these are just the means, the means that are believed to attract true love and appreciation in our lives. A great achiever needs at least a man to tell him he is great, a person with money would realize soon that without a purpose, all of his money is meaningless.

To experience true love, one should be a giver... A giver of love, because love is something that you can truly, warmly experience only when you give it away. Give it away and it will let you glow, bask in its warmth, bathe in its glory. 

"Love is something that you give it away, It just comes back to you,
It is just like a magic penny, hold it tight, you won't have any, It just comes back to you!"

Last evening, I suddenly remembered a friend from college on seeing something on social media. It had been long since we had spoken and I immediately texted him. Coincidentally, he had remembered me the same morning on seeing the same post. I felt a moment of pure, open love and true connection. With some people, there is just no feeling of 'Let him/her call me first'. Instead it is, 'Even if you try running away from me, I will find you!' 

What brings about this difference? 

Probably it is just that in one case you want to be cared for and in the other case you actually care. As soon as there is a 'want', there is an expectation that someone/something should happen to you. Clearly, anything apart from your actions are out of your control and hence there is no guarantee that this 'want' would be fulfilled. This results in grief. However, in the second case, where you want to give away the care, it is easy. Your actions are under your control and you can do exactly what you set out to. This is way much easier and achievable.

Is it then wrong to have any expectation of love at all? Well, there is nothing wrong or right in love and war. All that I am saying is that having an expectation is definitely risky and would sooner or later result in pain and sorrow. As it is said,

'Sometimes, just sometimes, when people say forever, they mean it,
Sometimes, just sometimes, when people make promises, they keep it..'

You may decide for yourself which one you want to opt for. But let me remind you, Lord Krishna asked us to abstain from expectations in the Bhagavad Gita and He was definitely an intelligent man... :)

Competence is a turn on...

When there are talks boring you insane..
The voice of reason that raises a valid argument at the right instant,
The voice that says not a word more than warranted,
The voice of trust, you know when you hear,
A promise, It will be done as said,
The word kept, 
These are the people who earn respect,

Never over promised and under delivered,
Well thought before having spoken,
Thoroughly professional,
I think, Is there a person below that exterior,
Of cool detachment?!!

The fingers working ever so efficiently,
Instant responses and replies on time,
They respect others and earn every dime,
With honest effort,

The sense of trust that they inspire,
Rising like a tall spire,
You know they will do as they say,
Keep your backup plans at bay,
This should have been the norm,
Yet generally it is a boring swarm,
Of empty promises and too many words,
More said than done, the modern day con,
That is why competence is a turn on...

If I told you...

If I told you this was only gonna hurt
If I warned you that the fire's gonna burn
Would you walk in? Would you let me do it first?
Do it all in the name of love
Would you let me lead you even when you're blind?
In the darkness, in the middle of the night
In the silence, when there's no one by your side
Would you call in the name of love?
If I told you we could bathe in all the lights
Would you rise up, come and meet me in the sky?
Would you trust me when you're jumping from the heights?
Would you fall in the name of love?
When there's madness, when there's poison in your head
When the sadness leaves you broken in your bed
I will hold you in the depths of your despair
And it's all in the name of love

- In the name of Love (Martin Garrix and Bebe Rexha)

For some reason, the lyrics of this song strike a chord deep down. This is almost all of what I would have said... And then some more...

If I told you we both build each other,
A little of each, more so together,
If I am Pikachu, you are my Pikapii,
We are good alone, together our awesomeness is legendary,

Will you stand up, give me some energy,
Together, we strike a synergy,
We form such a beautiful team,
What one thinks is already the other's dream.

Choose a donkey?!

To me it is a dream, an ambition, a fairy tale,
If you thought it was just as much as choosing a donkey,
"A donkey whom I like"??!!!
I am sorry, I am not the one for it..
You might have done that,
But that is your life,
This is mine, and I care far more,
I could be alone and not bat an eye,
But I am not living with any 'donkey'

I have known love,
I know the vast potential of a wedlock,
I have seen a promise of what could be,
To me it is a beautiful partnership,
A permanent roommate,
A best friend,
A partner in crime,
Not any "pet donkey"..

People hardly appeal to me,
And I have lost my dearest because of some of your criteria,
When you had conditions, I tried to live by them,
Now when I have a few,
Does it look like I am simply biding time to you?

Maybe it is just my fate,
I have to wait,
I shall, one needs to try,
I live in my timeline, not in yours,
Don't give me your donkey stories.
