Point in Life
I am at a point in life, where I think of none but myself
I wake up and brush my teeth,
Have breakfast - Exercise - Lunch - Work - Dinner and go to sleep,
How come the days are moving forward but I am still at the same spot?
How come I'm so anxious most of the times worrying if I've got enough time or not !
Sometimes, I switch myself off
The lights turned off
and in the dark I sit quietly and stare at the pitch black
The sound of crickets add the white noise helping me relax
I let my thoughts wander aimlessly
And I see my childhood playing in front of me
Why am I still stuck there, even in my thoughts?
Why do I never see my adult self down that road?
Why don't I imagine my future when the mind is disarrayed
Maybe childhood's the best place to run to when the thoughts are let out of the cage !
I don't blame them because now I have successfully imprisoned my mind inside my body
I don't let them roam around anymore freely
Now there's nothing that can stop me
Cause true freedom remains only in a fool's memory.
A little child running happy, running free.
Being amazed at every moment, laughing and playing without any worry
He doesn't know how this world is going to test him for each and every action
He doesn't know how this world is going to make life difficult for him at every turn
He is ignorant, he is silly,
He is helpless and hopeless and careless and brainless
He doesn't know how to do Math or how to write a cheque
But I can -
I am wise, realistic and I am independent
While He is silly and ignorant,
Yet, I wonder -
why do I run back to him when I let my mind wander
