End is always saddening but it always leaves behind an enriching experience and hope for a new beginning. The year has come to an end but I am not left empty handed, I’m not sad as loads of wisdom is what I have obtained.



Some questions are tough to be asked than answered
Some dreams are meant to be shattered
Some prayers are offered, listened
But remain unanswered.

Clouds— deadly and dark, do suffocate sometimes,
But it never rains,
The sun rises, yet refuses to shine
So, the fog sustains.

Life goes on and on…
But some moments need a pause,
No matter how beautiful life seems
Happiness comes with a condition or a clause.

Some tears remain stuck in eyes
And restrained to be shed
Ice of melancholy freezes smile
And the warmth of love is ceased to spread.

Some affinities are to be cherished forever,
Still abandoned for trivial reasons.
Some souls— selfless, altruistic
Are sometimes being snaffled of their visions!

Life goes on and on…
And I go wiser seeing people changing with seasons…

    An individual is the reason of own melancholia or happiness.

    Let’s take an example of simple, bright, plane mirror- it reflects the object based on the property it holds. As it is simple, bright & plane mirror so it will reflect object beautifully.
    Now take another example of convex or concave mirror- if any object comes infornt of these two kinds of mirror, they reflected very odd. Objects reflected are not in their actual dimension. But both types of mirror holds special property that far object can be seen near and near object can be seen far respectively in convex and concave mirror. So this is natural phenomenon, means one person who looks like prince, having money, lavishness and all comforts may or may not posses internal characteristics of emotional quotient, relation quotient, one’s value, etc. Inversely, like one person is not like prince and other facilities may hold special properties like convex and concave mirror.

    So my point is- we are the mirror of our own characteristics. If we see world painful then our surrounding will look painful, our own people will look like pain producing agent. Similarly, if our mind mirror is happy, optimistic, fueled with positive thoughts then our surrounding and own people will look a like.

    I just want to convey good message thru my comment.

    I like all your poem.

    Take care
