A Labyrinth

Everywhere I see
Chaos follows
Pending decisions and
Nerve wracking choices
Life building payoff or
Life ending courses

Confusion surrounds
Like fog in winter
Must take careful steps
Can get lost before I enter

Life is a labyrinth
Brimming with alternatives
Pick one, climb the slope
Full of courage and hope

The Attainment

Everything appears vague
Blurring my vision
The path seems far
A faint glow of emission

The years pass by
Still no illumination
The path stretches farther
A silhouette in isolation

Now death assumes near
Everything looks clear
The path ahead awaits
Only one breath away

The Inner Voice Of A 17 Year Old

bigstock_mother_warn_her_daughter_for_b_26167676Parents have high expectations from their kids. They want them to achieve great heights. And that is one of the biggest reasons for their nagging. But they don’t understand that they unknowingly turn those high expectations in to high hurdles. They tell you to get good grades to get into a good college to earn a high-end salary job. They ask you, “What you want from life?” I don’t know what I want for dinner let alone life! When you get low grades they yell at you asking, “How are you going to be anything with these grades?” Well I will be just be a good human being and isn’t that what we all should aim for? Because all the materialistic things like money, status and power diminish to nothing and only your deeds, good and bad remain. We came with nothing and we leave with nothing except the memories of our life that our choices shaped. It is my life and I will be the one to decide what to do and what not to do with it. Even if I regret my choices later, I will deal with it because they will be my choices rather than wondering my whole life what would have been if I had done what I wanted. But it doesn’t mean I want you to neglect me completely. We all need that little push every once in a while that you provide¬†unconditionally. But you don’t have to be a train wreck all the time. So to all the parents out there, just believe and motivate us, we will try our best and give our utmost efforts because nobody wants to be a failure. Have faith, we will do something worthwhile with our lives.
