DANCING IN THE DARK

Treading down a well known path

I found myself a little lost

Lost in thought and in way

A little frown my brows did cross

 

Wondering where I’ve stumbled to

Trying to figure a quick way out

Round and round I circled shrubs

I failed to figure my way about

Tired of trying I did give up

I sat down thus, on a fallen log

Lady sleep came calling me

Gate to dreamland, I went and knocked

 

I danced around, my boots kicked off

Night time creatures held my hands

I toasted with wine and drank it too

Making merry on the forest sands

 

I felt a quiver, a chirping sound

My eyes opened to bunnies and birds

They disappeared as soon as I woke

I woke up to that familiar world

The same old trees and bushes I’d seen

I recognized the road to home

I took to kitchen, baked some goodies

Reminiscing the night in morn

 

It felt so real the dream that is

 I felt my feet sore from the dance

I laid down on my bed and thought

‘To relive the night is what I want’

 

But never did I dream again

As lucid as that night I hark

For never more have I felt alive

Than that time, I’d danced in the dark.

Dreams We Ought To Fulfill

The Soul of the World is nourished by people’s happiness. And also by unhappiness, envy, and jealousy. To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only real obligation.

                    ~Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist   

What is more important in life ? Love or our dreams ? Now different people may have different opinions.

For some it will be love. They would want to look for that special someone. To settle down with the love of their life. Discover endless joy with that person without whom life may seem to be futile. And the never ending pursuit of these people will be to stay with their love if not by ill fate they face heartbreak.

The other kind would choose dreams. For them dreams hold  a precious value that transcends all other need. Chasing their dreams give them an adrenaline rush which they find addictive. And with the realisation of one dream, they form another. Because the journey to its achievement is the nectar of pleasure.

But truly love is also a desire we need to achieve. So both are one and the same. Sometimes in life we are torn between things. Thing that are difficult to comprehend. And so we leave the thoughts and go with the flow. But our life feels empty and we feel incomplete.

Every being born on this earth has come with a purpose. And to realise it is the only reason to be living. Otherwise we would be just existing. Not living. What ever we do with our lives affects the universe in various ways. ways we are too juvenile to understand. For only the person who has unfurled his/her wings and embarked on the journey of wisdom can truly understand the hidden mysteries. It isn’t rocket science. We just have to open our minds, Follow our dreams-for they are what will give us wings to eternal bliss.

Life is quiet simple. We think its complicated because we are afraid to take actions and act on our impulses. We are lost in the fear that it may lead us nowhere, that it will be futile. We are afraid of failure. So we do not go after our dreams. But seriously who are we to judge about consequences? If its bad then it will be bad. Why is it such a big deal ? And who has jumped from one sunrise to the other without going through with sunset ?

Cease the day my friend. Close your eyes and open your mind. Talk less and hear more. Unfurl your wings and go out to achieve your dreams. For you owe it to the universe to fulfill the purpose with which you were put in it.

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.”  The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

A Desire…

“There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart’s desire. The other is to gain it.”
~George Bernard Shaw

a desire is a strong emotion

it stems from within;

and overpowers all our senses, for what we desire

gives character to our being.

desires run deep, deep within ourselves

master of the unconscious.

unspoken, but but very much there

sneaking out when least expected.

little things in life

that seem to be

without reason, so is a desire

no way to explain. no justifications

but sometimes our souls

run deeper than a puddle. discover reason,

and overcome the desire.

with much grievance, moving ahead.

but the desires not dead

it lurks deep inside

visiting in dreams, making us cry

as is nature, we are bound to forget

just to move onto

another desirable  object.
