Die Today

Die today
For a better tomorrow
A mighty death or
A coward’s end
Vessels of earth always crack
A day delayed or
A day anon

Die today
For devoted benevolence
Survive tomorrow
With selfish arrogance
Indispensable are reason and stage
Right ones bestow glory
The false merely agony

Die today
And become eternal
Your deeds alone
Define this life
For only fools choose
A disgraced sentence over
A courageous demise

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

Light V/S Dark

8BA_darkness_and_light ” Now Lissa you speak on light and Rose you on dark and demonstrate an argument on Light v/s Dark.” said Mrs. Briggs with a smile on her face, knowing both of them to be very competitive.

( They both staggered nervously to front of the classroom.)

Lissa : Light depicts purity , goodness and peace , it marks the beginning of day and hope for a better one.

Rose : Dark depicts fear , death and depression , it marks the end of day and teaches us that every beautiful day has to end for a more beautiful one to begin.

Lissa : Darkness doesn’t destroy darkness only light can do that. Without light , there will be only dark and in dark only death.

Rose : Without dark , there is no purpose of light. Only in dark , you  miss light , you understand the value of light.

Lissa : Light illuminates people and make them cognizant.

Rose : Only after total darkness , people obtain that light. Only in dark one can see the stars.

Lissa : Light is hope , faith and miracles.

Rose : Darkness is the test or situation to prove all that hope , faith and miracles of light.

Lissa : So as every yin has yang , I guess light can’t be light without dark.

Rose : And dark can’t be dark without light.

( Both went back to their seats satisfied with their performance and understanding that light and dark are  just two sides of the same coin .)

 

 

 

A Tribute

girl-reading-letter-F111-32-705

“See you tomorrow”, Ritika said as I left to go back home after our run in the park .Just when I thought I had overcome my gawkiness, I slipped on a piece of paper. Someone must have dropped it. As I picked it up I noticed it was letter . Ooh a love letter , so exciting . And I started reading it.

Dear Lucy
How are you? Please come back home. Everything is alright now. No one blames you , it wasn’t your fault.It was just your parents time. Death is a part of life , it surely marks the end but also completion of a life. Nobody knows how they will die but I know if given this privilege , your parents would gladly die again to save their precious daughter’s life because that’s what parents do. Honey I know I can’t understand what you are going through , but you don’t have to bear it alone. We will endure this grief together. You owe it to your parents to at least try. Don’t make their death a tragedy , make it a tribute.
Love
Aunt Kim

I read with watery eyes.Later I asked around about the letter’s owner but only to fail. I probably won’t find Lucy or know her full story but I’ll keep her letter to remind me that you always have a choice , choice of how to deal with grief and make that grief fuel for resilience . Turn a tragedy into a tribute. And never forgetting this will be my tribute to this letter.

Book Quotes That Make Me Wonder

think-you-dont-like-romance-novels-ftr

There many quotes that just leave you wondering for hours.Some touch your heart in the most unexpected way ,some makes you feel were especially made for you and with some you form an instant connection.These wise lines often make my day and leave me smiling.These little lines make reading books worthwhile and make a permanent place for an unknown character in your heart.Following are some quotes I cherish.

”Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.”  This amazing quote is in an amazing book – The Fault In Our Stars . After reading this book everybody will want to read  An Imperial Affliction but sadly it’s not a real book.Anyways,this book has such profound quotes but this make me wonders the most.As explained by John Green the author like in maths there are infinite numbers between 0 and 1 like 0.1 , 0.01, 0.001 and so on but there are more infinite numbers between 0 and 2,similarly augustus gave hazel an infinity in only some numbered days which she will cherish all her life the most.”I fell in love with you the way you fall asleep, first slowly and then all at once.”An incredible quote again from the same book.

”We accept the love we think we think we deserve.” this is from The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.Its so true.Many times we accidentally find something beautiful but end up ruining it because we feel we are unworthy of it and pick those people who hurt us.”I feel infinite.” this is one of my favourite quotes.This phrase exactly describes that moment when you feel boundless, limitless and immeasurably great.When you know nothing can hold you back.That one moment when we are infinite.

“When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it’s not reasonable to grieve when it must come to an end.” it’s from twilight.Its so true.It isn’t reasonable to grieve because everything has to end one day , but nobody wants to wake up from such a perfect dream .”Death is peaceful,easy,Life is harder.”Life is difficult and death easy that’s why our reward for living is death.

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” The Alchemist taught me a lot of things including the fact that dream , and dream big because the possibility of fulfilling that dream is what makes life interesting.When you follow your dream the whole universe helps you, you just need to keep your eyes open in order to accept that help and be patient,you will get there.

”Do not pity the dead, pity the living and above all else those who live without love.” Dumbledore’s one of the wisest man I have ever had the pleasure of reading.”After all this time ? Always.” Snape replies when Dumbledore asks him about his love for Lily.Always,because love can never vanish but only grow.”It’s our choices that decide who we truly are , far more than our abilities.”Harry Potter showed us that we can always choose to be good, to use our abilities for good.It doesn’t matter where we come from but where we go from there.

All these quotes make me wonder

All these quotes make me remember

All these quotes teach me life is a beautiful godsend

All these quotes I’ll cherish till the end
