Each word is a new poem... each breath a new rhyme... Each smile a new beginning... each day a blessing sublime!

To ourselves…….

Let me live this moment of truce,
I watched whole night to stare the falling dew,
I didn’t see a single gem falling,
But the wet window pane was telling,
I missed to watch the commonest of thing,
And of my wisdom my mouth often sings,
To fool oneself is easiest of all,
But to fool others in itself a tough call,
Still we dare to stare at sun,
And challenge,
”Like moon you will be done”
And neck knotted men around will applaud,
Few because of sight and others being glad,
We could, rather we went on to build,
Towers, monuments to conquer every field,
The sight of death on the 11
th day,
Hardly anybody’s memory got a way,
Heart still stand numb, with no stakes,
Shall we ask to ourselves……………
Do our lives really depict some say?

But to fool others in itself a tough call...

Thanks Shobhna
You are right but i feel it depends what we are making ourselves believe. Most of us have a preconceived notions and we stick to them all our lives. at times its nothing more but fooling oneself. no?

Yes Amit, in this case you are right.According to my opinion, normally we dont recognize our potential and dont use this in right direction. We learn our limitations soon but we fail to learn our powers, thats the mistake. Give our full potential to ourselves, then we can lead.We are all part of creation, we have only to open up, to discover what is already in our inner side.

Well said Shobhna. At times we are in a complete awe thinking what we can achieve. Very true!
