No I’m not depressed.
Was just flipping the pages of my diary and i found this piece of poetry i wrote a year back, on 17th June ’09. I remember I had a quarrel with some friend of mine, and was all her fault. As always, i was the miss everything-happened-coz-of-me-and-i-am-begging-on-my-knees-for-forgiveness! Lol, but as soon as things got sorted out, I promised myself to adapt an I-don’t-care attitude. Coz be practical, the ones who moan over everything, care for every other person, are the ones who are left behind in the race of life. And the ones who just dont give a damn and are busy in their own lives, reach their targets very soon.
They aren’t content in the end. And I no more consider life a ‘race’. It’s just about how you spend the journey along, stepping forward leaving your peers behind, OR walking with them and savoring each moment. I chose the latter. What I learnt that day and I recall today is, that whining over stuff that doesn’t need it, is something useless. It’ll get you no where. Being persistent and a step at a time strategy will get you where you want to be. Crying is okay, SOMETIMES. It lightens your heart and lets you make decisions. But teary eyes ALL the time will just make the view of your life blurry.
So, well, here’s the rainbow of thoughts i found after i cleared my blurry vision..
With tears flowing from my eyes,
and my body, as cold as ice,
With full consciousness, i promise I make,
Not a single sorrow, on my heart I’ll take.
‘Coz my past experiences made me learn,
marketing your sorrows, will nothing let you earn.
All you’ll get is a bunch of false sympathies.
Happiness wont unlock- Go try a million keys!
All y’need to do, is just wear a nice smile,
forget all your worries, and relax for a while!
The world is so bright, so why paint it black?
For sadness and madness, be a hard nut to crack!
Try to be calm, and always be strong.
And never let yourself, go on the path of wrong.
One last advice, just give it a try,
spend a peaceful day, and please don’t cry!
Be a bit patient, face the challenges in life.
and NEVER let your words, turn into a sharp knife.
In this way my friend, one day you’ll stand,
with contentment and success, both in your hands!
