A quick one

I want to write this one in ten
Thats the timeline that has been set
For post that, there is much work to be done
On time, this milestone has to be met!

I need to force my head to think faster
For rhyme, rhythm, flow and words I choose
For time is of essence, efficiency the key
To my manager, and not to creativity do I owe any dues!

My performance needs to be stellar
What people do in fifteen, I need to do in five
And the race to beat time has already begun
No real time in life for a true deep dive!

Be it poetry, philosophy or just smelling the roses
The activities are unproductive and too much time they wallop
So I abandon my attempt to this poem
My manager is waiting, and the time is up!

Grappling against the tides that have taken me by storm
Struggling to find the way out, unlike my usual norm
The pit of darkness trying to swallow me in its ugly mouth
Nothing seems to be working - neither ways harsh nor words couth.

All I have to hang on is a sutra - a thread
Hope is the only hope separating the alive from the dead
And now with immense faith I live each day of mine
I somehow know it isnt long for life to once again be fine!

Time and Again

Someday people have to die
So will you and so will I
And yet, they live a life so miserable
As if tides would change had they been more able!

The brooding over the long lost past
Regrets, failures or just that the time ran out too fast
The witch of the past still holds her magic spell
They miss the beauty of the present and regret tomorrow's past as well!

Some live in the worry and the planning for the morrow
If this was their last moment, from where would time they borrow?
No one knows the real prophecy that awaits
Then why waste this moment contemplating the future's baits?

The present throws no regret and shows no fear
It is there for a king as well for a mortal mere
The greatest mystery lies wrapped in this while
Transcend time
And open the present with a smile :-)

About Me

My photo
I believe happiness and bliss is the birthright of every individual. I believe that God is like an ocean and man is like a drop in the ocean, both have the same properties and one is just another. I do not recognize a God who punishes, who is different from me. All things - good or bad - yes, even the bad ones start in God and end in God. I dont believe in the start or end of time. I believe I am the frame of reference, the refered and the act of refering.
