Enjoy the show!

August 20, 2008

standing

with the game long over
i made my way out
of the ground
being neither the winner nor the loser

played my part so damn well
i came out in high spirits
even though it ended
in a dull draw

with the skies sporting
a dull grey look
i walked away from the main road
into the offbeat path!

a solitairy bird flew over my head
and like a plane on a air show
put on a performance
befitting a gold medal

questions buzzing inside my head already
now started crawling with more velocity
why? what? how come?
where? when? how?

plenty of questions to choose from
yet the answers evaded me all the time;
barrage of questions everyday;
trying to find a reason for all that happened!
questioning everything that’s happening!

the more i searched for answers
the more harder it became to find one!
venturing out of the madness that i despised
i created a new madness inside me!

tension building inside me all the time,
thoughts weighing me down every minute,
tired of searching for an answer
i finally lost control and gave up!

standing all alone in this new place
i opened up my head
emptied out all the questions buzzing inside
and started to enjoy the show that i am witnessing now!

sometimes in order to enjoy the present, one must learn to let go of the past
or you will just be sucked into the blackhole that arises out of it!

    yup it’s really hard to find one.. empty out your questions and be happy my friend 🙂

    sure you can enjoy the present.. but the memoirs of the past are still there like a scar!! 😉

    The scars are there just to remind you of what you should not do in future 🙂

    its already emptied (hmm… the poem also says that 😉 ) and right now i am enjoying it 🙂
