Shshh! Something is echoing In the silence of the town ; Over the noisy crowds and The tantrums of the natives. Oh! This is the call of the wild.
It is calling me to the valley of beauty and tranquility . Where truth resides on every tongue and lies cause allergy. Where silence speaks the Words of wisdom and sagacity. Where love is the religion and the caste of all,is but Humanity.
Where inhabitant flies from One nest to the other,having Considered each their abode, Singing the songs of liberty And of the unity in diversity. Where each one is sheltered Under the same blue sky ; And where against the odd rains, An umbrella of care, each provides.
The throne of purity where rules all hearts and the fire of Hatred doesn't exist anyway. Where no one sleeps of hunger And betrayed no one feels.
Oh! I am bequeathing this town And returning to my home . The Home we left, ages ago ; Tempted by the desires so selfish . The Home that yearns for its natives to come back in that ethereal land. The Home that'll greet and welcome us all for coming back from this foreign world.
As a sojourner, we all are wandering In this ocean of dreams and the Palaces of melancholy. Dwelling in the Chains of our own thoughts, and the air a little foreign,bothering the comfort of ours.
Melody ranging with the hymns of love And the barrel of flowers spreading the amalgam of fragrances around. With a little of cacophonous sounds and a little of literary ballads,we listen to the Life itself.
Somewhere in the concealed metaphors, And somewhere in the touch of similes, Sometimes an unrhymed syllable and Somewhat a touch of imagery,makes us Live a thousand lives of the myriad of souls.
We pass through the ebbs and flows Sometimes dive down and sometimes Drown into the depths of the oceans. The blues of the sky and the mirage of the blues of water leads sometimes us astray.
Countless dazzles in the dark night sky, So are the pebbles of the sandy soil, And often the dust particles whirling,when passes through the dark; a shining beam of light Trying to count them all, we surpass a voyage ourselves.
Nourishing the Hopes with every new morning. Refreshing the passion to live more lively Painting the empty corners to fill in the beauty Drawing the mosaic and colouring freely This way or that way,we travel this journey.
Some with regret and some with contentment Some with little but a lot more valuable Some with lot but nothing to be valued We all live and all die,but still only some Live and some die in this sojourn place.
U nited hands, altogether tied N ights and days, chains remain aligned 'I mpossible' is but just a word. T ogether they can accomplish the world. 'Y ou' and 'I' when switches to 'We' and 'Us'
I t ignites the power of togetherness. S ingle drop of water,looks aloof and barely of use
S ublime river benefits the universe,when together the drops infuse T o tackle every threat, that strength Union upholds R everberating the hidden potentials;Unity enforces E schewing the differences, thwarts the collapse N ourishes the stability of the cluster's circumference. G arden of morality blooms, when sprinkled the water of unity T he flowers of harmony flourishes,leading eventually to the victory H umanity certainly prevails when Unity surmounts each Diversity.
This life is a composition of all the sweet,bitter,sour experiences. At one time, we can see ourselves all happy.Flying high in the air.Everything and everyone seems to be on our side. Nothing bothers our peace of mind at those times. We live every moment more vivaciously. We are lost in the admiration of all the beauty around us. We call that feeling as 'Happiness'. We breathe and feel happy.We see our loved ones smile and laugh and we become happy. We see our favourite meal on the table and it exhilarates us. A little achievement brings enough satisfaction. The soft breeze touches our skin and it seems the happiness hugging our souls. Having quality time with family or close friends makes us believe the world as a happy place to live.We smile with ourselves thinking about some past event when we had had a good time; be it a school function or some college picnic or someone's wedding reception or anything.We feel happy and just smile and relive the happiness of even the things which are gone long back. Recovering from a disease we have fought for a long time, makes us feel the happiness of being blessed by the Almighty. Offering prayers, talking to the Almighty and praising Him gives the ultimate happiness to our souls and we feel enriched with Happiness.Giving anything helpful to someone needy gives us pleasure of the whole world. Doing a little favour to someone be it known or unknown makes us happy. Listening to the chirping of birds gives the delight of a Happy song of the time. Watching them fly makes us feel the happiness of being liberated enough. Gazing at the starlit night makes us appreciate beauty even in the dark. We look at anything and our eyes try to find even the slightest of beauty or goodness in that. We feel our body, mind and soul in a state of contentment and pleasure and we are qualified for the tag of being called 'Happy'.
And what do we do when things doesn't go as per our expectations? When we lose someone most loved, to death,without whom we never had thought of living the life. When we have sacrificed our every pleasure for a very exam and we don't see our name shining in the results. When we feel lonely and need a ear to listen to our heart but there isn't any. When we get hurt from the best ones of our life. When we see pain and suffering all around us.When we are going through the worst of life and nothing seems to improve. When we are heart-broken by anything or anyone?....
We just lose Hope in everything. We think that everything is destined to belittle our worth. We underestimate our capabilities. We surrender to the hardships of life.We assume that we are not worthy enough of living a happy life. We end up depressing our minds. We overlook our strenghts and accept ourselves as a 'Sad person'. The things which were once pleasing to our eyes; we don't give a slight look towards them. The nights and the days doesn't make a large difference to us. We no longer want any kind of conversations with anyone. We ignore all the beauty and happiness around us which we had been praising before. We keep on harming ourselves by ourselves for the things which are gone. "Happiness" is just the state of mind. It is all upto us how much happy we want ourselves to be and how much happy we could ourselves make. We can find happiness even in the little unknown things and we can find sadness even in the most pleasurable things. All lies in your head.Think of yourself as a sad person and you will naturally throw all the happiness away from your life by yourself without even knowing that. And think of yourselves as a happy person and you will make ofcourse your life better and also spread happiness in the lives of those around you too. We fail to realise the reality of life. The life could not be sweet only. This has to be somewhat bitter and sour too; so as to relish the taste of sweetness. We often ask the question"why me?". But you ai'nt the only one. Every person, i repeat,Every Person, from a little kid to an oldage person,faces hardships and problems and sadness in life. We all have some ups and downs in life but what makes the difference is that how you will overcome and get a lesson from them and use those problems as stairs to your successful future. And i think that is 'Life' all about. We unnecessarily entrap ourselves in the web of problems and all the heartaches we have suffered from, not knowing that it costs us our peace of mind and happiness of heart; therefore making it the most expensive. So, my dear reader, be a little miser there. Don't pay such a high amount. Don't ever let anyone or anything make you believe that you don't deserve happiness. If today there are some hardships going on , tomorrow they will be gone. Take the lessons from them and move on. There would definitely be something better and wonderful to come. And if you are happy right now, be grateful to Almighty. And spread your happiness to everyone around you. Be polite in your behaviour with everyone. Remember Nothing is permanent here. Neither hardships, nor happiness.Neither good days,nor bad days. Neither life nor you and me. This life is a journey. Lets make it the pleasant one with all the positivity we could spread. Face the harsh situations with strength . Embrace all the good around you. Appreciate all the things and see the beauty in all. For it is rightly said by persian poet, Islamic Scholar and Sufi mystic,Moulana Jalal ud din Rumi (R.A.) : " Everything that is made beautiful and fair and lovely is made for the eye of one who sees"

CALL OF THE WILD by Carolyn Glackin In tribal beats of native drum A primal force begins to hum 'Round bonfire's flame, a voice doth rise With fury born of land and skies Comprised of elements of Earth Alive in all from time of birth In every woman, man, and child An ancient call, the call of the wild It's a trinity, it's a holy nexus Residing in our solar plexus It's the sound of rain On the jungle's floor It's the might and main of a lion's roar It's the crackle of lightning And the rumble of thunder That leaves us filled With awestruck wonder It's the deep unending wail of pain Mums let out when a child is slain It's the echo of mountains in the mist And the crashing of waves On shores, sunkissed It's the tradewinds blowin' 'Cross the sand It's our ancestors voice, in every land It's a lone wolf howling 'neath the moon And the sun beating down In the month of June It's the stars that fall out From the skies And the flapping of wings As the eagle flies It's the battle cry in a warrior's heart It's the agony felt when lovers part It's a collective call to all mankind That comes to awaken And comes to remind A call that ignites the Divine within So each soul's work can then begin It's a sacred call, neither meek nor mild Evermore, may we heed it The call of the wild.

Icy catastrophe can't conceal her hope as she's not meant to be broken, but to blossom. **
