The places we cherish
The moments in those
The people we share it
Who's doors are never close.

The horizon is what we choose
It could be a mile it could be a pool
Bringing light into darkness
Can be one's greatest tool

Sailing has never been easy
The wind takes its share
Being steady in all weathers
Is a drift so fair and rare.

The deepest joys
The purest thoughts
Are things that
Can't be sold or bought.

Gifts of faith
The simplest kind
Seem to evade
The worldly mind.

What is the limit?
That a thought could reach,
If it could float away from my mind

I have heard
that thoughts can weigh,
They are substantial, they are defined.

It seems they have a power.
Thoughts could make Reality!
You can call them magical or
   just well designed.

A book
Turns its pages
With a soft gentle stir
The flip of the edges
And the sounds that murmur

The stories
Unfolds its mysteries
Reciting the weight of its words
The stops and the lapses
Add intrigue to their worlds.

The end
Like's to be chased down
By overzealous beginnings
The length of the passage
Is the story of the innings

It does not matter to the world,
Who you are
What have you DONE!

There will always be someone
To take your place
No matter
What you have WON!

It does not matter to the world
what you are made up of.
you do not do it for yourself
It matters to no ONE!

Not even Einstein or Bill gates
any other man with a million traits
Could keep a pedastal for too long
It is the way it IS.

If you keep quite and fade away
It is you,
who will be wasted
It is you,
who will loose your SAY

It is
the reality of this world.
The wheels of destiny
are at play.

It is
  Bend low  
And have it all your way.
Humans are selfish, even the most selfless man  who does great deeds, earns respect for himself (FOR HIMSELF)
Hence being humble in this self righteous world
Is a  poem in its own way..

It may all be meant well
Your love and caring engraved deep within
Your thoughts sure and your soul pure
All your achievements negation of sin.

It may all be in vain
If your actions are short of whats within
A wrong word, emotions stirred
All that earned will be just sent to the bin.

It may all be fine still
Understanding and empathy build it within
Do for others, be kind dear brothers
Let the heart be an ocean, someday you will win.
I wish we could all have hearts as big as the ocean.
My dad taught me that..i wish i always remember that..

Those days when you were told
These are the best, better behold

Those days when you were told
Learn the best, make yourself unfold

Those days when you were told
You are the best, be strong and bold

Those days when you were told
Take your rest, shelter from hot and cold

Those days when you were told
Do not test, patience is gold

Those days when you were told
It is not a jest, you will grow old.
