This poem speaks about the constant Learning Process in our lives. It is this Learning quotient that adds different shades to Life. With the learning perspective, one can enjoy one's journey on earth and the concept of pain and pleasure fades as only pleasure persists in learning. Read on....
Ø As our eyes open to each day’s experiences,
Our minds need to open up to the learning behind all instances,
As we condition our mindsets towards a learning perspective,
While commencing to view situations in a manner that is objective.
Ø There are essentially two ways to learn our daily lessons –
The easy way is when at the end of each session,
There is a positive yearning; while the hard way,
Leaves the individual experiencing sad / sour emotions all the way.
Ø The aftermath of both lessons linger in the mind eventually,
However, it is for the tough lessons learnt that matter the most in actuality,
For, when a lesson is imbibed by paying a price of deep hurt, caused,
The student of life is forced to step back, repent, correct and pause.
Ø The final lesson for us is that of enduring maturity,
In understanding that Life itself is a game, testing our integrity.
Thus, we must differentiate ourselves from immature individuals, who lose their nerve,
While the wise individuals rise higher up in Life’s learning curve.
I believe life can be compared to one big Bungy-Jumping exercise... with the initial fear hitting hard on your body, you have to be ready to let go and enjoy the entire experience to succeed and spread around the brilliance of the radiance within you! Read on....
Ø ‘Courage’ is that unfettered and undoubting emotion,
That rises from the depth of one’s being with a rising motion,
That brings to light the greatest trait in an individual –
That of selflessness and bravery existing in a state, that is dual.
Ø ‘Courage’, displayed in appropriate behaviours outwardly,
Actually is a depiction of clarity on values, inwardly,
Such that even in the face of the uneventful storms,
The courageous man will find his feet to seek solutions under all norms.
Ø ‘Courage’ represents the establishment of a calm mind,
Amidst a pandemonium that may gradually unwind.
The reason why the mind attains composure,
Is because, man relies on his inner strength to straighten things out for sure.
Ø ‘Courage’ displayed during certain instances, may prove to be fatal,
As man has to pay the price for proving his inner metal.
Each country, thus, has its own set of National Heroes, who withstand sorrow,
Sacrificing their lives, in order to achieve a higher goal for tomorrow.
Ø ‘Courage’ can be developed by strengthening the mind and heart,
To accept realities and build on possible solutions, right from the start.
The acceptance builds a hope for the emergence of a better future,
That people with no courage, often, fail to nurture.
Ø Thus, the moral of this poem, my dear friend,
Is to cultivate a soul that spreads a courageous fever, that mends,
The darkness that envelopes us and makes way for light,
Lighting hopeful lamps in peoples’ hearts, whilst setting things alright.

It is my understanding that the people who made the greatest impact on the human civilization during their times, were the ones who believed in living simple yet had a profound vision to uplift the lives of their brethren in a manner that would live on for generations together. They lived simple lives, forever rejoicing each moment, in the universal omnipresent energy, delivering their very best despite the odds against them. Read on....
Ø A morning witnessed the cry of a new-born,
In a world so widely torn,
Between two separate states of joy and misery,
Whilst he figured his road to creating his destiny.
Ø Neither in darkness nor in light is there an ideal roadmap,
For this little child stumbling facing tiny mishaps,
As the process of constant learning takes over,
He paves the way for those following his trail repeatedly over.
Ø The trail is bound to be filled with challenges and odds,
However as the Angel of wisdom smiles at the child and nods,
To tell him that those thorns on the pathway lead to flowers,
Whose fragrance the child would experience and discover....
Ø As the child grows into a young man, a husband and a father,
He realizes that there is no "Ideal" state of life on this planet, to matter,
For the "Ideal" state of life is reached when man lives in each moment,
Living and rejoicing in the eternal energy forever omnipresent.
Ø It is when the child within the man, realizes this greatest wisdom,
That the soul becomes absolutely enlightened, living in the kingdom,
Of the Beauty and the Beast existing simultaneously,
Each enhancing the light within the soul concurrently.
Ø So, wake up - little children of this magnificent Universe,
To learn about messages behind numerous experiences, very diverse,
Packaged for you in the journey of a lifetime,
Making the drive on each path, worthwhile, each time.
This one is really close to my heart as it conveys the reality that a strong and happy family is what sees one through the different phases of life. It is an ode to my family - an ode to all the beautiful experiences that I have cherished as being a part of an absolutely wonderful family! Read on.....
Ø ‘Family’ is a great institution of warmth and love,
That always lights, in our hearts, a candle of courage that moves
Us to reach within ourselves, to emerge as our very best,
Inspiring us to achieve newer heights of success, living with great zest.
Ø ‘Family’ is the heavenly cushion in our life,
When we go through rough times during many a mundane strife.
‘Family’ gives us the direction to move ahead on our life’s mission,
Adding value to our existence, turning out to be a highly treasured possession.
Ø ‘Family’ is an individual’s greatest might,
When strong ropes of fear and doubt strangle one tight.
That’s when one uncovers the critical reality,
That irrespective of light or darkness, one’s family is what matters in entirety.
Ø ‘Family’ is that divine blessing, that bestows upon us numerous opportunities,
To discover several keys to a whole new world of dynamic possibilities.
So go out there and build your own little nest, my dear friend,
For these genuine bonds will enliven you, till the very end.
