Living a "Life!"

Distant hill tops always look smooth and shiny.
When you actually climb them you become sad and whiny.
You wish to see your destination so soon.
From where you stand beautiful is the moon!


To see and meet the God is not an easy task.
It is equally difficult to see the face behind the mask.
It takes time to realize ,what you have is a curse or a boon.
At times it is important to bluff yourself and act like a toon!


Not every one can understand you or your intentions.
Not needed that you will always have the right premonitions.
Human craft is the work of god but not the way it functions.
When in doubt don't take the support of assumptions!


The priorities in life keep changing with every bend and a turn.
When you are unsure wait for the moment to pass and do not run.
Preserve your "trust" for the selected few and do not distribute it to all.
If you are taken for granted  try to be strong and do not wait for a pal!


Gone are the days when people spoke in a respectable manner.
Welcome to the era of confusion and the selfish demenour.
It is tough to blend with every one and wear a smile.
It is tough to meticulously plan a counter attack or a wile!


The calculations you do will never be equal to others' equations.
For the equations others frame you can never find the solutions.
For complex problems, theorems and axioms there is no dearth.
This is the fact you have to live with from birth till death.

  1. The priorities in life keep changing with every bend and a turn.

    Profound wisdom in the two lines. From far everything looks good , beautiful and easy. But its not so.In Kannada there goes a saying ,'From far the mountains look beautiful , but on climbing one realizes its hardness.' Beautiful poem, Afshan.

  7. Preserve your "trust" for the selected few and do not distribute it to all. So true Afshan! As you get older, it becomes important to understand who those selected few are.

  8. 'Preserve your trust for the select few' - love that line. Your poem really makes one introspective, you feel like taking a step back and just reconsidering what's really important. Great work, Afshan!!

  9. "For the equations others frame you can never find the solutions" signified that each of us have a different reference frame, which we intentionally ignore. A mere imitator might have life but is not living actually. Good lines, Afshan!

  10. Life has become so complex that the more you think about stuff, the more confused you get. I think just go with the flow is that all you can do to retain your peace of mind.

  11. Pearls of wisdom in your beautifully crafted poem. Was difficult to pick a favourite line, but this one I thought was a message for me today - When you are unsure wait for the moment to pass and do not run.
