Life’s Maze..

life's maze

Different paths of life,

Some circular, some curvy,

Some straight like a ramrod, some topsy-turvy,

Some pave our way and are arduous, some joyous, some unpleasant treacherous ones,

Unpredictable twists and turns,

Some bushy and thorny,

Sometimes a simple and plain journey,

We ought to find our ways,

Through life’s difficult maze !!

Am I Good Enough?

Mesmerizing, scintillating, tranquilizing beautiful I am, thought the rose…

As she looked into her reflection with delight,

A seed of doubt crept into her, and sent it a little root,

Am I good enough, Am I right??

The rose wandered with these thoughts and thought….

Maybe, I should’ve been small and fragrant like a Jasmine,

But a Jasmine is very tender and delicate,

Or maybe, vast like a Lotus,

But Lotus grows in the muck,

Maybe, I shouldn’t have had thorns,

Or maybe, I should’ve been designed differently,

Then  people would’ve liked and adorned me..

Am I good enough, am I right?

 

As she was wandering in the garden heartbroken,

Feeling miserable and forsaken,

She met the calm and serene, blissful chrysanthemum,

Merry and gay, on the way to the sanctorum,

Who paved the way for her dear friend rose, telling her,

Be the beauty that you are, for that is what you are meant to be,

Do not tend to the seed of doubt, for it steals the true self you ought to be,

And whatever be the path you take, dear friend,

We shall all meet at His Feet, in the END !!

I am good enough, I am right !!

 

In life, we often tend to play the game of looking good and get stressed, no end, until we find a friend, guide, teacher who steers us in the right path. An attempt to portray the same.

 

Small joys of life

via Daily Prompt: Inkling

Today, as I walk the path of life,

I have no inkling, about the inscrutable ways of life.

If only, I had known, I would have appreciated my life.

My plans didn’t materialize,

My past kept popping up, which I failed to recognize,

I was unable to let go of what had passed,

The bounty future was holding, I just bypassed,

When I reached the end of the road,

I realized what was amiss, and I just bowed,

To the omnipresent, almighty, and vowed,

If at all I have another Ulife,

I will surrender and abide by His plans,

I will hold not to the past, will not plan the future,

I will just live my life and savour the small joys of life.

Where’s my path ?

Some days are dull days. Nothing seems to go right. I miss an alarm – wake up late, rush to finish the chores, pack off kids to school in time for the bus, rush to exercise, rush to everything to be done…

Finally, I catch a breath to sit and relax only to realize, I have messed up acting on a message which required action. Phew…Ups and downs, brain clogged, mind foggy, vision poor, nothing is clear on how and where to proceed. But, dear life has to go on and I have to move on..

Am here, starting off writing my post and releasing endorphins and trying to feel good. Hopefully, this works 🙂

Me, the apprentice

via Daily Prompt: Apprentice

Dear God,

I am the chosen one to be “Me” in this life. I am an apprentice, learning the ways of life, with each passing day. Each day, each experience, rich and laden with training, to go to the next higher level of living and being.

Teaching me the art of dealing with uncertainties, giving me lessons, yet, taking responsibility of my  life. Making me independent, yet holding my hands and steering me. Allowing me to find my own path, yet leading me by showing the way. Pushing me through the dark, yet showing me the light.

Nudging me, goading me, to take a step cutting through the difficulties, cleansing my mind and soul through the experiences of life.

Oh God !! I wait with bated breath, for the day when my apprentice training will be complete, so I could reach the next level ….
