Some Say Its White, Some Say It’s Black!

Image: Image: digitalart /
Why bother about the good and the bad,
It’s ok to cry even when we happy,
It’s ok to laugh when we are sad.

There is an animal within me,
There is an animal within you.
Let’s stop pretending what we are not,
Let’s just be what we are.

Every move you make, they try to measure it.
Every thought you share they try to weigh it.
Every time you bother,
About the measure and the weight,
You end up killing slowly the real you.

There is no meaning in these words,
Yet they speak a lot about the hidden.
Joy or pain is the choice you make,
It’s all about how you look at things.

What’s the colour of life we live?
Some say it’s white,
Some say it’s black.

  1. What's the colour of life we live?
    some say it's white,
    Some say it's black.
    some say it's grey
    and some say it's colourful ! :)

  19. Your poem reminded me of a song, we used to sing in school. It talked about colors of our life, some days are yellow, some red, some days are just white. Each color meaning different things to each of us.

    Life is definitely full of colors, with each of us coloring our own world, while we allow everyone around us to add their colors.

Awakening Of the Inner Self!

It was yet another Friday or billions of earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.

Sweet Song of The Soul

The distance between us questions possibilities,
Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached,
Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet,
Yet hope says they would someday be entwined.

UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged,
Unassuming how the world would read them,
Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail,
It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought.

Feelings expressed in words for many are view points,
Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few.
Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart,
These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art.

Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts,
Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest.
Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others,
Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.

Let's accept, It's important to fail!!!

The other day in midst of a long tiring journey from the airport I zoned out in thoughts, looking outside the window. What was I thinking? I was trying to fathom as to what's the single most element distinguishing mediocrity from excellence.

A lot of us have this beautiful idea in our mind to be achievers of some sort. Each individual has their own definition of excellence. All of it leading to creating a happy space in our minds. But these remain mere ideas and definitions in our head.

We have a lot of clutter occupying our minds. Some of it even includes being less appreciative of others success. Being too bothered about right and wrong of others choices. A bunch of useless thoughts which in no way are going to be helping us in our pursuit of happiness. When we are done with all the wining about the world and people in it, we get on with our mediocre life.

We seem to believe that there is solace in the cocoon of mediocrity.
