Be Responsible and be brave

What a bright sunny day in the northern part of India today! As I look out of my window and take a glance at all the beautiful plants that blossom in our garden, it reminds me of a purpose. A purpose we all are born for, a purpose that we seem to have forgotten. We as humans hold a certain responsibility, towards our relationships, families and also our nation. While being busy taking care of our personal goals, we have left behind our undertaking as a child of our motherland. But we must all understand, growth is not one sided, we would grow only if we live in a growing nation. Our contribution is needed in all spheres and the first and foremost thing we can do is to abolish all hatred amongst different clans, classes etc. Togetherness is bliss and the results of it are eternal. Here are a few lines that might strike a chord somewhere so give you a few minutes and read through. Until next time be responsible and be brave.

 I CHEATED MY CREATOR

Travelling around in Fascination,

My soul gets a destination

I have taken birth somewhere,

But, the place seems despair

 

Before I arrived, I promised

Promised, He won’t be missed

For I shall carry a part of him,

And, will fulfill his entire whim

 

He tied me to a rope,

And sent me with a hope

I will hold on to it,

And value his knit

 

Once I took to the land,

I held a woman’s hand

I was taught new lessons,

My confusions were lessen

 

But I grew to be ungrateful,

How I became so hateful

I wandered to know the reason,

Was closer, season after season

 

My creator came to visit,

Held me to say, if you limit

Ambition to self, its a sign

Of your purpose losing shine

 

For selfishness is disappointing,

My world is about combining

The threads of that rope,

Which holds massive scope

 

I build to bring the change,

For one of you might arrange

The broken pieces of earth,

So, I continue to give birth.
