A desert called ‘confusions’…

I stopped, I looked behind
I always felt I was being called
The moment I waited, to hear that again
The moment I wanted, never came again

I was content, more than I wanted
But there was something which made me unwanted
Love I breathed, care I felt
And also a pile of memories which I dreamt

Togetherness made every day glimmer
Distance always took away the shimmer
I sat bemused again by that window
My emotions were petrified and I felt all hollow

Do I always have to express my wants?
Do I always have to wait for that love?
Do I always have to feel the emotions?
Why me always in a desert called ‘confusions’?!

No excuse for being Philanthropist...

Just saw the movie Seven Pounds, though I have never written about any movie or my likes/dislikes. But this movie compelled me to write at least something. At this moment am feeling all choked, choked with emotions, loaded with thoughts, piled with loads of memories flashing in my mind. I don’t know where to start and how to express but just one thing- “Love people, help people, care for people who matter”.

We all have read at thousand occasions “life is short, be happy” but how much do we keep that in mind when we are actually going through a bad time? We don’t. How often do we remember being good to others? How correct do we find being empathetic at almost all situations? How hard do we find to be nice to someone who wasn’t that nice to us? Made you rethink and ponder on the questions ;)

The best part I liked about the movie was the importance of “realization”. Being in a material world, the importance of feelings, emotions, love, care everything becomes a second priority. Not our fault completely! But what is amiss is the factor - realization. It has become very easy for us to say “I forgot, am sorry”, “please understand, it wasn’t possible” and many such one liners which have become predominant in our vocabulary.
Is it that hard to be kind? NO. Is it that hard to express love? NO. Is it that hard to start your pursuit of happiness? Again a BIG NO!
Still thinking about what you just read and the questions that were asked? Don’t! Just stop and start living a life full of kindness, love, care and a bag full of happiness! :))
