Friends we meet

Time flies fast but
life stands still.
It shall be till,
the friend is found by the window sill.
Sitting side by side,
and things we all abide.
Even by the seashore,
talking about our things more.
It’s like that for me here,
you guys are near but yet so far.
You’re still there,
across the road.
But what am I doing?
Just sitting idle,
in front of the board.
When will we meet?
Sit together and play with our feet.
Hope it happens soon somewhere.
Hope life flies,
as fast as a hare.

My first poem in this site. #Nostalgia

The Horizon

landscape photograph of body of water

The story of a little girl
Who tried to place a bench
In the middle of the sea to
Sit with the horizon in her palms.

The story of a little girl
Who was told that the horizon
Was really, really far away
And that no one can find its home
Even after a prolonged hunt for it.

The story of a little girl
Who, after being told these
Felt more connected
And more close to it
Than ever before,
Found love in its presence
And peace in its absorbing colours
And continued to be so forevermore.

For this is the story of a little girl
Whose little eyes spoke
With her ambitious heart
Things that others barely have
Time to observe,
The story of a lil’ girl
Who took the horizon to be
The beautiful friendship of the
Sky and the earth
And not their separation
As someone told her lately.

 

Outside Your Movie

Ever looked past the veil that is separating you from the feelings of others? Many a time in our lives have we lied, made unsagely decisions, spat out harsh words in blind anger and showered anger on someone who has nothing to do with it.

Despite all this, when someone blames us or when someone says what we’ve done is wrong, we suddenly turn red as if we’ve been upright and holy all the time.

We often find people to be ill tempered, lying, arrogant, brave, kind, double faced and so on… But remember that these are the names coined up by you for them. People also have a similar mindset regarding you.

The reason for this is that we are always absorbed in our own movie, that is, we are blind to the incidents which had taken place in the other person’s life which has made him or her take the position of “bad” in your mind. And yes, we are not aware of the way someone else’s perspective of something is. The diversity of our perspectives is an important reason why we always get into that dipped into hot water mood.

So look from the other person’s point of view and try positioning yourself in their place in that particular incident.

They may not be right, no one is, but it may seem so to them. Just like us. So looking into someone else’s movie would make our life harmonious and reduce arguments and misinterpretations.
