It was a moonlit night,

And in this undiluted light,

I was strolling around,

When the world was sleeping sound,

Leaving my footprints behind,

Half-heartedly, did I grind,

Those sparkly diamonds,

Scattered all around,

Leading my path tonight,

By twinkling so bright,

Like glitters on the ground,

Like paradise on earth I found,

That suddenly I was interrupted

My dreamlike thought disrupted

By a frozen smack

Landing on my back

Leaving me baffled

I moved ahead puzzled

Pensively re-entering my dreamland

But still trying to understand

The reason behind the meltdown

Of my scintillating frozen town

Finally that day is approaching

The devastating monster is encroaching

This is the time we need to act

Before it impinges its worst impact

Let’s get motivated#1, Stop Complaining!!

P.C. – Google

Almost every day we complain or we hear people complaining.. We say things like, “I really wanted to do it. It’s my passion. But I am so busy with my job, that I don’t get time. Or I am a mom.  I have two kids. I have no time for myself”.
But remember friends, every person on this planet has 24 hours a day. Some make the best out of it and some just keep cribbing.. Actually it’s nothing to do with ‘having less time’. It’s totally not true. It’s about bad time management. You have time just like everyone else, you are just not managing it well.. Trust me if you just give 15minutes a day to your passion, to what you really want to do, it is enough in the beginning. And out of this 15 minute, believe me 10 minutes will just take to kick a start. Just like when an old engine has not been started since ages. It takes time to warm up and start functioning. 

Now, that would be your first step, where you break out from your indolence and take a step towards your goal.. You need to religiously follow it everyday in order to set the harmony. And how to do it. It’s simple. Maintain a calender. See if you are giving those 15 minutes everyday. In case you fail one day. It’s okay. Try next day for 30 minutes. May be cut down on TV. Or go to bed a little late. Figure out a way, according to your convenience. 

The idea is to get the flow, and to get started. And that’s it. After all it’s what you love to do. You just need to fire up the passion inside you. So stop complaining and get going!!

My dearest companion Time

Stop racing

Stop pacing

Take a break for sometime

Let me live in this moment

Let me bask in the present

So ravishing

So enchanting

What is the hurry to go?

Just for a while, stop the flow!!

I try to walk

You always spurt

Why do you exert

It wouldn’t hurt

To wait for me

To match my pace

Just in case

To enjoy my company

For a while

With a smile

After all we are companions

For a lifetime!!

My dearest companion Time

Whenever I need you

You never there

When I am getting late

You stop being my mate

You start a race

Against me

Turning away your face

And on a contrary

You never hurry

When I wait to see my love

You never quickly pass

You leave me in a morass

To ever trust you

And yet you stay with me

In every moment I see

In my ecstasy and my agony

In my loss and my rise

You are my truest companion

As you stop the tick-tock

My breath gets forever locked

And they would then say

Alas, her time is over

It was her last day!!
