Two roads

He sees two roads.. One his dream. One his reality. A chance to choose one. The choice is his. Its his life after all. His dream..A chance to follow his heart. A chance to live life in his own terms. Should that be the path he takes? He imagines the sneers. He foresees the difficulties.

The simpler route beckons him lovingly. Carefree, secure life. What is a dream? You can achieve much more here. "Choose me!" it commands him.A chance to be secure. A chance to wallow in comfort. "Just be practical!" it whispers in his ear.

He just stands and thinks. Should sneers dissuade him? Is the compromise worth it? NO! He knows. He choses. The right path. His path and his alone.He choses.. to live.

The chase

She sits,the lonely poet
with a crystal ball
Hoping to catch a glimpse
of what life holds
for her..

No matter how much
or how long she stares,
the same fate peeks
from behind the mist...

She reaches out
filled with excitement
to touch it
only to watch it disappear..
time and again.

oh! Why does it appear??
If all it can
is stay away??
Does it want to be near too?
Does the creator understand
her longing,pain and fears?
Or does he just want her
to pursue?

A pursuit she knows
will bring her only sorrow
a pursuit she knows
will break her heart

The joy of the chase
she can not
give up..
The pleasure
in living life
in her own terms...

She just chases
stopping to rest
once in a while...

The mist

A long walk
he had ahead
His exhausted state
somehow did not help...
Slowly, smoothly she came down
his dear mist
cooling him down
invigorating him..
Happily in her company
he skipped ahead
and finally almost
reached his destiny

Oh! But where did she go now?
She disappeared
in a blinking..

Was she a companion
in just times of sorrow?
Did she come in
just to disappear?

From a distance,
she watched his surprise
How could he understand??
She had the power to suffocate
constant company
she never could be
for suffocation and sorrow
would set in..

She moved away..
in search of a new traveler..
whose burden she could
make light..
by her mere presence..
She.. was the mist

The mist that never
ever could stay
familiarity.. could breed contempt
all she wanted
was love...
From the traveler

Take me away-- Avril Lavigne

I cannot find a way to describe it
It's there inside; all I do is hide
I wish that it would just go away
What would you do, you do, if you knew
What would you do

[Chorus:]
All the pain I thought I knew
All the thoughts lead back to you
Back to what was never said
Back and forth inside my head
I can't handle this confusion
I'm unable; come and take me away

I feel like I am all alone
All by myself I need to get around this
My words are cold, I don't want them to hurt you
If I show you, I don't think you'd understand
Cause no one understands

[Chorus]

I'm going nowhere (on and on and)
I'm getting nowhere (on and on and on)
Take me away
I'm going nowhere (on and off and off and on)
(and off and on)

[Chorus]

Take me away
Break me away
Take me away

The message

There i see him
Atop the mountain
lonely and forsaken..
The lines on his face
i see the struggles
The wrinkled smile
i see the hope
Hope of a better tomorrow?
Or is it the want
to be taken away
from all the pain?
I see the wise eyes..
Know they do
that tomorrow never comes

A loser he is not
to want to escape
for even in pain,
he doth have some pleasure
some pleasure
that helps him smile..

A warrior is he
who never gives in
A warrior he is
who continues his battles
I watch him
from the shadows
his smile i feel
becomes bigger

Is it directed
at my ignorance?
Moments later,
he disappears..
The sudden thought
enters my mind
he is i think
communicating with me.

Child, he calls..
a warrior aint he
who never gives up
a warrior
is he
who knows when
to stop fighting

I just wonder
Should I?
But then, when?

Ten things i like about Banglore

A friend of mine says that my vocabulary has nowadays become limited to "Dumb city"."I dont like Banglore" Yesterday, i spent some time thinking about what in Banglore that i actually like.For a change forgetting the pollution and the crowds. This is the list i came up with.
1) The 100 free sms i get per day.
2) The tree i see from my office window.
3) The bird i sometimes see in the lake(well it was a lake) near my place.
4) The kid who sits next to me in the bus and sleeps peacefully.
5) My cousins. :)
6) The wide variety of books i get.
7) The Ulsoor lake.
8) My morning walk.
9) My independence.
10) The occasional grey sky

Boulevard of broken dreams- Green day

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
and I'm the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah,
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line
Of the edge and where I walk alone

Read between the lines
What's fucked up and everything's alright
Check my vital signs
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah
Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I walk alone
I walk a...

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone...
