The Constant Need


The constant need…
Is ruling over our thoughts and actions.

The constant need…
We are dazzled by shiny attractions.

The constant need to run...to chase,
We have no end in sight.

The constant need to prepare...to be ready,
We burn, on both-ends, our candle bright.

The constant need to get more...to be more,
We forget to take care, losing our mind.

The constant need to compare...to judge others,
We lose empathy, turning mentally blind.

The constant need…
Can it be controlled, can we stop?

The constant need…
Will we survive, will be come out on top?

The constant need to move forward...to get ahead,
We are okay taking short-cuts, seeing rules bend.

The constant need to be the smartest...the best,
We are convinced that means are justified by the end.

The constant need to improve...to become perfect,
We walk on the thin edge of a knife.

The constant need to fight...to always win,
We forget there is more to life.

The constant need…
We simply roll the dice.

The constant need…
Makes us pay a heavy price.

For You, Dad!


On this Father's Day,
This poem is your gift, dad.
Thanks to you we have become friends,
This friendship is ironclad.

You and I might not always agree,
But I seek your approval always.
You and I are different individuals,
But you have inspired me, since my early days.

I don't share a lot with you,
And that's my fault.
I think I might not be that different from you,
You keep your emotions locked in a vault.

It is a God-given opportunity,
To be with you now.
You are such a rockstar, which I see today,
But never realised this before, somehow.

I might not show this often enough,
But I thank you.
I might not say this often enough,
But I love you.

You bring life, to life itself
Bringing joy where there is none.
You have made me who I am,
Proud to be your son.

You Are Okay






It's okay...life is okay
You are okay

You may not feel so today
But that too is okay
You are still okay

You want more than you have
But that too is okay
You are still okay

You face a steep uphill climb
But that too is okay
You are still okay

You are low on confidence
But that too is okay
You are still okay

You struggle to see my point of view
But that too is okay
You are still okay

You still get up every day
That's what makes it okay
You are okay

You still fight everyday battles
That's what makes it okay
You are okay

You still hold your head high
That's what makes it okay
You are okay

You still find a reason to smile
That's what makes it okay
You are okay

You still haven't given up hope
That's what makes it okay
You are okay

It's okay...life is okay
You are okay
