Life- A Poem by me

What I am going to tell you, was not so long ago,

Then I was a kid and couldn’t understand how the time flows,

What happened with me, must have happened to you,

How the things have changed so much, I have got no clue.

On that Sunday, the sun was hot and bright,

Sitting in my room my imaginations were taking flight,

I wanted to go out and play with my friends,

Have a lot of fun with my marbles in the sand,

But mum asked me to stay back, to complete some math sums,

I was so disappointed; this was something that I could not stand.

I said to myself “a kid does not have a life”

Older people have all the fun, they can follow their own choice

I promised to myself, to live the way I want

To celebrate my life I will not miss a chance

I will follow my heart and won’t care for the world

The idea was great and not at all absurd

But here I am today, I have grown up now

The things should have changed, but they haven’t somehow

I can’t do what I want or what my heart says

Where have I lost my dreams, I cannot even trace

I am running all day, life has turned into a chase,

I feel this is the life and not just a phase,

I am stuck with office work and responsibilities of life

And I say to myself “a grown up does not have a life”

Life’s Big

All these years i have learnt one thing… one very important thing and that is “Life’s Big

No Loss is ultimate and no victory is final is the essence of “Life’s BIG” …changes in life unsettle everyone… even a small change upsets us a lot and we end up ruining hours or maybe days frowning over the changes…where as Life can be simple if we could just accept it the way it is.

I remember, when I was a kid and I had spent my childhood going to just one school. I was not a child who shifted from one school to other. But then the day came when my parents decided to change my school, I was upset and scared to change my school, because I was did not want to leave all my friends behind. I had studied, played and shared my lunchbox with them for good 10 years. But, probably that is the first incident of my life when I learnt that “LIFE is BIG” I moved on and found new friends, not that I forgot the old ones, but Life just gave me more friends. The “change” which upset me initially gave me so many beautiful memories later on.

After a few years, I met with a serious accident and lost a couple of years recovering from it. I was shattered, lost all hope and started disrespecting my life by doing things which were stupid and useless. Once more, I had lost all my friends, as they moved on to college life and i was still trying to gather the lost pieces of the past, recovering from a disastrous accident… but realizing that ‘Life is Big’ and I WILL GET my chances, I moved on. With my parents’ support and love of two new very dear friends (Himanshu and Ruchit) I again started a new journey, realizing that it’s never late in Life, because life is BIG. Now, I am about to complete my studies and I will be a CA very soon. I realize that it is not the end of the journey and there will be bigger challenges that I will have to confront and several changes that I will have to live with, but I hope to remember in all those times when I find myself stranded in a difficult scenario that Life is Big and I will survive through everything.

I have learnt from my life’s experiences that Life will give you chances, just keep looking for them, never lose hope till you have won and keep saying to yourself “The Race is not over yet, coz i have not won”

Be positive and respect your life, do something meaningful.
