No leaders please

Invent yourself and then reinvent yourself,
don’t swim in the same slough.
invent yourself and then reinvent yourself
and
stay out of the clutches of mediocrity.

Invent yourself and then reinvent yourself,
change your tone and shape so often that they can
never
categorize you.

Reinvigorate yourself and
accept what is
but only on the terms that you have invented
and reinvented.

be self-taught.

And reinvent your life because you must;
it is your life and
its history
and the present
belong only to
you.

Playground

A wolf, a vulture or a kid, I often have to choose from. To remain on the hunt forevermore or live on dead and decaying. A need for one’s survival.

As a kid it’s never been easy. The game leads to victory and loss. Full of heartbreaks and moments of pride, arguments and celebrations.

And a place for enormous growth.

Be defined by you

“Normality is a paved road. It’s comfortable to walk, but no flower grows” ~ Vincent van Gogh

Let it inspire you
Or not.

All routes are littered by travellers.
Neither collect nor become that.
Just travel through
Don’t be defined
Don’t define

Let it inspire you
Or not.

Routes are yet to be discovered
That will reward you
With your imprints.
Be drawn to goals
And not the litter.

Let it inspire you
Or not.

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions”

The Inferno

The raging inferno is theirs

It’s never about you

Let go

Let life lead

When enforced on someone,
Imaginary idealism loses its meaning
That awaits voyagers to take it.
Voicing opinion on ways others hit it is often rude,
When you’re oblivious to the journeys of weak seedlings
And it becomes bestial when you know their struggles and scars.
Life begins to lose its meaning when we don’t stand up
Against the crime done to an innocent soul.
We allow a part of our soul to die each time
When we choose to follow the same rotten practices
That kept it veiled in secrecy;
Giving it the sky to proliferate.
Keeping the life light and fun is life-saving,
Not just to some
Rather becomes a must to each, at one point in life.
Politics submerged in fake imaginary fights gets distorted
That catches some meaning only when the ground is laid
To nourish the innocence, beauty and divine creative forces
And let it burst forth, soar newer heights.
Let the soundness of the system protect the rights and choices of each.
Rise, bring out the rebel in you that protects humanity;
Directing it, letting it make and break us
Letting it discipline us,
And the touch of emerging grace kindle our souls.
Let us see how life quietly creates itself.
Let it thrive.
Let life lead.

Let us choose

Choose, because life is all about making choices.

So, please, choose. Test, try and validate. Where everyone has his say. But, it’s not about that. It’s about what YOU decide to do.

Always remember, you can still open a whole new can of worms even without making choices that you must.

For not choosing is a choice in itself.

And, in the end, you’re still the only person who is answerable for your life, who is bound to your growth and happiness.

Their choices can be devastating and so can be yours. But, it’s only you who will be made accountable for it and never another.

It’s your life after all and you have command of it.

So, take charge of your destiny. Let us choose and have heart to face whatever comes our way.

Because growth is attainable only by making choices and life is all about growth.
