Yarn of Life

Yarn (copyright- me)

Yarn (copyright- me)

yarn of life,

she weaves through her old frail hands,

one day be made into a cardigan

or may be a woolen cap of a young boy’s wonder,

she remains behind the scene,

yarn slipping through her hands,

silky-smooth threads,

.

she is happiness,

she is love,

she is struggle,

she is survival,

she is the artisan,

she sits in a reverie,

her eyes focused,

as she sutures the yarn of life,

in her old frail hands.

happy

happy-

a tiny word,

two syllables, still vast,

says everything, saying nothing

at all.

Light and Dark

The thoughts of light had come to haunt her once again, when she was safely cocooned in her darkness.

“Why? Why do they come back?” she cried but there was nothing she could do. She had to face them because they were as real to her as her darkness.

She had left any hope for a bright future and was finally accepting her light-less fate. After falling down again and again, she had accepted her defeat against her demons who were now ruling her from within.

“Let me be alone. Let me be.”

The white glimpses of the happiness, the word she had forgotten, wouldn’t stop tormenting her. They were there to kill the very essence of her soul.

“Please go away. Please, I beg you,” she whimpered, suffocating in the brightness of those thoughts.

They were the instruments of her demons only to end whatever was left of her.

Ideal Life

Life is the perfect imbalance between what we know is truth and what we hope should have been a truth.

Isn’t it so? Life is about living… Life is about viewing life with your own eyes.

L– Look

I– Instantly

F– For

E– Extraordinary

Who doesn’t want perfection in one’s life? Who doesn’t want that sense of relief in living life in one’s own way? Who doesn’t want their life to be extraordinary?

Every one wants this. And there is nothing wrong about it. Life is about such things only. Life is about perfection… Life is about making life extraordinary.

So many articles, essays and books define the concept of ideal life. But is it of any benefit? No, because every one have in their mind a perception of their own ideal life. One’s ideal life is not similar to the person sitting next to him. So what does that mean? That means the same thing- always look for the extraordinary and achieve your ideal life. It is indeed the most difficult task to do. Why? Because of the habits, because of the life one is continually leading, be it closer to ideal or not ideal at all. Habits are the most difficult things to change. They are like the rust on the iron, which can only be subdued with a new coating on the iron. So what do you need to do? Get that coating of life over the habits of your life. Believe so much in your concept of your ideal life that it becomes difficult for you at any cost to not believe it. This craving for the ideal life… for that extraordinary touch in life must go on against all odds. It is necessary because it is the way to the happiness that is most precious to most beings.

But I ain’t saying that achieving that ideal life would free you of all your sad moments.. bring you eternity of happiness. I never believe so, never would I say so because then the whole concept would be false. A human’s mind when gets one happy moment strives for another happy moment, that too even more happier than the earlier one. That is the reason no one in their right form can ever achieve an eternity of happiness.

Still, something is better than nothing. Isn’t it? Even that ideal life would be ideal for you in the end despite of all happiness and gloominess. Life is about living and achieving that ideal word before it. It is true.. I know that and you will know that as well.

L– Look out

I– Instantly and continuously

F– For that special

E– Extraordinary and ideal life
