Wicked Death And Charming Life



The saddening news of one of Hollywood’s most revered actor Robin Williams’s death was probably the most talked news yesterday. Social media was abuzz with talks about his alleged suicide. This got me thinking on the age old topic of life versus death.

Life can be easy or difficult. But death can only be easy. Death is a moment of reality. I have heard people talk about painful death. But how can it be painful, because if you can feel the pain then you are still alive.

Many a times we wish for death. May be we feel defeated; maybe we don’t have the courage to face life. But when death stares at us, eye to eye, we get scared and pray for life. If not all, few of us for sure would really feel the fear.

Death like darkness is patronized by all at some point in everyone’s life. It thought of death enlightens the poet in all. It’s romanticized by writers too. Some believe it to be evil. Others say it is a simple reality of life. A logical thing, you may say, since everything which has life has to die eventually in this mortal world. Yet it’s doesn’t stop being something mesmerizing.

Wicked mind is never silent. It pokes you, pushes you to try the untried, do the undone. Death can be wicked too. Inviting at times, asking us to embrace it. The trick is to stay sane and not to fall for its charm. Life is charming too, may be its worth romancing life too.

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.
