Don’t run!

Face the wicked and slimy people,
But don’t be scared of them,
And don’t shy away from them,
As you can’t run away.

You may be targeted by a bunch,
But stand strong against all odds,
For if you don’t help yourself,
Who will?

Do your duty and wait for the fruit,
You will get rewarded at the right time,
Grab that moment to enhance yourself,
And succeed swimming against the tide.

Suicide is not a solution

If you have a problem, face it.
If you have no one, find one.
If nobody helps you, help yourself.
If the entire world turns against you, ignore.
If your loved ones left you, find another.
If your partner is a cheat, free the person.
If you lost your money, earn it.
If you are sick, fight against the disease.
If your heart is heavy, cry aloud.
If you can’t sleep, seek a doctor’s help.
If you hate yourself, start loving yourself.
If someone abuses you, shout loud.
If you are in pain, get a painkiller.
But don’t kill yourself, as life is too precious.

The wasted past

I just turned some chapters back,
In my life book of sweet and bitter memories,
Time wasted with no big goal,
Regret as I age for those moments.

Should have planned quality time,
With my family that is all I have,
Money played the game so well,
Is a slow poison, that killed my time.

All I remember is the hours at office,
And the rest at home to rest,
Should have dreamt big, and chased it,
To cherish my success when I quit.

Books were my companion,
That taught me the way to live,
Else would have got blown in the storm,
I’m sure some good chapters are yet to be added.

Colour your canvas!

Add some color to your life,
As each day is a gift to be alive.

Don’t expect anyone to love you,
Start loving yourself.

Give your best to the one you care for,
And never expect back as they can’t.

If you are waiting for someone,
You are killing your time.

If you love someone who doesn’t,
You will miserably die inside.

Break the barriers and get to know you,
And give yourself a pat on the shoulder.

Love can never be forced,
For it’s a spontaneous bond.

Engage yourself with a passion,
That you desired for a long time.

It’s a long way to go,
Yet you will cherish it.

Be careful!

Run, to be a part of the race,
Conquer, else you will have nothing,
Produce, as you have people to feed,
Save, as all will mind their business when in need.

Stand tall to be unique in the crowd,
Be bold to withstand the scheming ones,
Ignore the black sheep as there are many,
Be careful with your peers, as they are your competitors.

Care for your parents, as you are their flesh and blood;
Keep an eye on your children, as there are vultures around,
Precious is your life, keep your beloved happy,
Eat healthy and sleep well to live long.

Is it worth?

Contagious is depression and negativity,
Like a parasite, feeds on your mind,
For its a disease and not a condition,
Better ignore the one who laments.

As your time is too precious,
Stay away from the negative elements,
That wait for a sympathetic soul,
To easily pass on the burden.

Their stories may be too real,
That will impact your thought process,
Putting your peace at stake,
And turning you into a different person.

Let them cope up with their negativity,
As you already have too many to handle,
May sound like, you, an introvert,
But prefer to live your beautiful life.

If

If you are alone, find a partner,
For you are wasting your time.

If you don’t have a job, find one,
As you are useless and a burden.

If you are not true to yourself,
Better change, for the world is smart.

If you are a cheat, let go off the evil,
Else you will end up all alone.

If you are mean to the poor, you have a rotten soul,
Beware of karma as it will come for you.

If you are a two-faceted maggot,
You have a fake identity.

If you are unhappy and miserable,
Search where you lost it.

Life, not so cool!

Saw him pop a pill to calm his nerves,
As I threw some questions, nothing out of the box,
He turned red and seemed visibly shaken,
Felt him nervous as his tasks were incomplete.

He took another pill which alarmed me,
A warning signal that he was unstable,
His movements were strange,
The fear that surrounded him was strong.

As a human, I had to pacify him,
For he may not do well but is a normal human,
Struggling for an identity that may be difficult,
As too many compete with him.

God knows how many are in the game,
But not every one is smart to win,
The winner is always the best,
A strong willed fighter of course.

Be prepared

Be prepared for one day you will grow old,
God knows how smooth it’s going to be,
We may or may not be rich,
But ensure to keep your beloved safe.

As you grow old, it’s a bliss,
If you have your family around;
For they are your pillars of support,
Who hold you close in tough times.

It’s a pain to see lonely, elderly folks,
Who have none to lean on!
What they earned might be in the bank,
Alas! that’s not going to be of any use.

Vulnerable are they at that age,
Who crave for love and affection,
If you can’t love them, who else will?
Be prepared for growing old.

The Broken Ladder

Let not the burning fire smoulder,
And make you a prisoner to the comfort zone;
Monotonous will be the outcome,
That may hinder chasing the fire.

It is grave and silent with all lousy,
Zombies that come and go,
With no fire but smoke,
That suffocates me.

See great ones with passion,
As it keeps me going on and on,
Else its claustrophobic and pathetic,
As I search for the one with fire.

Thus I wonder their purpose,
For I see them void and blind,
With a ladder that is broken,
And can never be fixed.
