Life is Rain

It was ought to be an occupied weekend. But you know how the brain works. The worst kinds of distractions occur when you’re supposed to be focused on the task at hand!

So I was “preparing” to start the research on what I was supposed to know for the summer internship program. “Preparing” I was for over 10 hours. Every little [irrelevant] thing seemed interesting (and in my defence, they were all interesting)! With me goofing around for way too long came the afternoon. It was dark. The weather!  The weather was dark and was quiet!
It was very calm and peaceful, just the right amalgamation to trigger the nature admirer in you! And soon it started pouring. It was a little windy too. I went to the balcony to admire the rain (an admirer that I had now become!). Then I saw the tiny droplets. They were spherical, like a pearl, unlike the other heavier droplets. They were tiny, but not puny. The life of a raindrop is to reach the earth from the skies. The heavy raindrops are focused. They reach home, the earth the fastest, but what about all the grandeur, all the magnificence that they have missed as they journey from the heavens to the mother earth? Sure they might be a whole lot faster than the tiny pearly droplets, but how good is that really?
Life is like that. The lighter (and simpler) the life is, more freedom you feel. I know I might sound a little trippy but, you stumble upon new ideas only when you let yourself free. Only when you can take your time out to look around and admire what lays in front of you, to explore what is hidden from you, and to question what is beyond you. Only when you drive yourself towards the destination without missing out the journey. Only when you be that little carefree droplet.

P.S.: Too much of this would just be goofing around and I’ve realised that it’s not all that desirable! Oh and if you’re wondering on why does it rain like it does, this here might be a good place to start!

It Rains not forever!

Wondering………if anything will go right,
Or if anybody……..set my soul alight.
It’s not everything you wish, not everything you want,
This obsession, in my mind’s going rampant.
When all of it goes odd to you,
It’s now the time to find your clue.
Even though if you feel all odds against you,
It can’t rain everyday, It don’t rain forever.

None’s gonna remain here constant,
This world seems a place of scant.
You gotta get yourself used to a change,
Or it is for sure, you’re out of the range.
It’s time now to show who you are,
The time to make the world at you glare!
Even though if you feel all odds against you,
It can’t rain everyday, It don’t rain forever.

You can’t hide yourself from the miseries,
No more fake tears, it’s only binaries.
This world is, in expression devoid,
You can’t avoid the people you love, nor can you love the people you avoid.
It gets complex day by day,
You just can’t throw ’em away.
Even though if you feel all odds against you,
It can’t rain everyday, It don’t rain forever.

You walk down till here everyday,
Still finding out of it, no way!
I jot down these words for myself to relieve,
From the pain of domination, that everybody give.
This world to everybody really mystifies,
To persist, you need to be more and more wise.
Even though if you feel all odds against you,
It can’t rain everyday, It don’t rain forever.


The Human Race

They come, They go,
They die, They prosper.
They know that human race lasts not forever.
Long ago, hit the meteorite, and formed a crater,
Leaving behind no life of a dinosaur.
It may again happen in near furure,
But they still try to peer into matter.
Very soon there’ll be the end of our race,
But still they try to keep up the pace.
Instead of living in harmony with nature,
They try to study in wise of a chapter.
I find no mistake in the later,
But surely there’s something wrong in their behaviour.
Humans’ is a young race they say,
They have power and it’s like child’s play.
One day this power certainly brings destructon,
Now they can’t come, they can’t go,
Neither can they die, nor prosper!
