Learning lessons, Turning pages

Scars of the past, in my head
Dissatisfied, yet fulfilling
Alone, without a breach
I gush to another destination.

2008.
A year full of surprises and shocks, utmost highs and deepest lows, so much planning and organizing.
And now, 2009, time to implement, time to act to achieve what I planned for.

Is it what I want? I do not know.
But should I not achieve, I shall let hearts down.
Which is not what I want. Thus the chase. My name has already been enrolled for the rat-race; all I have to do now is run the race, because if I don’t run, there is no-way I shall win.

So, I shall be the rat.
I shall chase my cheese
So that I feed my tummy later
And don’t have to beg or please.

The year where I shall graduate, 2009 shall be full of some more sweet sour memories. Leaving Ruia college will hurt, but finally having a degree and be called a graduate at the age of 19 should be unusual.

So, there you go, I am ready.

With me there is sufficient facility
Within me there is infinite capability
Before me there is endless possibility
Around me is boundless opportunity
Why should I fear?

Nice poem.. :D

If you're gonna be a rat, here's a story from Catch Me If You Can:

Two mice fell in a bucket of cream. One of them gave up and died. The other, worked so hard, and ran so fast, that it turned the cream into butter. And it walked out.

The Seeker said...

Happy New year, another year has just passed by. Though there is enough optimism
to look forward there is hesitation to leave back the memories we had this year.
But take them along with you...

may this new year bring new horizons in your life Shatabdi...

Take care!!!

Fear is an essential part f our life.
When we stop fearing, we slowly become shameless. Life loses it meaning, and even if we're thrashed, we're shameless. Everything in a ratio is okay. When you lose fear, you lose shame"

-Brida, Paulo Coelho!

Very nice lines.

I agree, some amount of fear does evoke shame, yes.
But, If you fear too much, you don’t even take up things that might lead us to be thrashed. No risks, not even the ones which were worth it.

This brand new year,
Ive learnt,
When you overcome your fear for things that you in your capacity
U r just putting ur talents to good use
:-)

Agreed?
I wanna kn w wht u think of this one
Happy new year love,
Im so glad that the sucky year ended with lovely company of u n tri in my heart :)
>:D<
