AND I DO REASON NOW..

I did not know, then
It would go this far
But I was always up
For what was coming
After I felt the need
To go beyond in life

That was the moment
When for a period
I had stopped reasoning
Allowing my soul to feel
What I had felt once
Flowing along the flow

I started a journey
I had decided for me
Though I had forgotten
The path so known
That it looked so distant
That it looked amiss

I have come this far
Flowing unrestricted
And I do reason now
Listening to my soul
Taking life as it comes
Shaping life as I need

DECISION

Still living that day
Like yesterday
When I had decided
To sit, to think
To go deeper inside
To make a life
As I had thought
To see the way ahead

It is my decision
To remain unsettled
And to live the feeling
Of the day
As it was just yesterday
The day when I felt
I was crying for an edifice
That never cared for me

I needed to look back
Into the time and its reasons
To try again to find
Why it was all so ambiguous
I would ask for answers
But why there were none
Yes, I still don’t have answers
But I accepted it on that day

What I did in my past
Was about my decisions
And I needed to go along
To find the reasons
For my decisions ahead
To set my soul free
To come out of ghettos
That had cropped up

The day when I realized
My life was still mine
Even if some decisions
Were not in time
When I felt
Even if I was wronged
I could reconcile
With what was dark

The decision
That gave me life back
The way I was
It asked to look back at
The days in past
Even if the darker ones
With reasons never given
To find the light ahead

I still live that day
Everyday
To own my decisions
Taking what all I say
To reason further
To settle
On an unsettling path
To see the way ahead

SOMETIMES, DIFFERENCES CREATE A BRIDGE – LIFE IS CERTAINLY BEAUTIFUL

Life is certainly beautiful
Off late, it has been generous enough
To let me be with the rediscovery
Knowing I am not going to listen to it again

It is good to go unbound
It is bliss to feel the shared ground
I know I have marked mine
Thou shall be the next to join

Sometimes, differences create a bridge
That, the voice of the soul nurtures
Making existence one with the conscious
In conversation with the thoughts

Deciphering the rediscovered realms
That echoes, deep inside me
Reaching to the ‘self-contained’ me
Unraveling the forgotten mysteries

I cruise, to the known, to the uncharted
Steering clear of the thick sound
Creating ‘new’ is the pleasing adventure
Reclaiming ‘now’ is gaining the lost ground,
With you, with me, and with all..
