You Are the Master of Life

You Are the Master of Life short poem

Aim to be the Master of Life.

Heaven never waits; let’s take this today, before it’s gone like yesterday

Every generation gets the grief, sure do we all;

But the Master is he who doesn’t feel perplexed at all.

One, who understands this noble fact, will find the way and act.

Do the sorrows lessen by shedding tears?

Steal away delicately, from the treasure of destiny,

all the worthwhile moments of cheer.

No matter what the atmosphere!

The master is he who doesn’t feel disheartened in any sphere.

Be alert; be cautious; stop procrastination.

Move forward; with motivation to our destination.

Yearn to perform our duties and keep our promises.

Act right now to raise high, soon too soon,

To fulfill our responsibilities towards life bestowed as boon.

No, life is not to be hated.

Gather enthusiastic patience as life has to be appreciated.

Living is not just breathing, so we have to be optimizing.

We have to die as death is the end; but have to

Make our lives thrilling before the Day of Judgment.

Hopelessness should not raid our heart and mind.

Seal all the incidents that have violently shaken our life,

‘Coz just by diving deep into the ocean of struggle,

We’ll be able to search for the pearls of life.

So, We are the masters of Life!

Stepped in this world… learned the ways… explored for the years… Dance is in my soul, rhythm is what keeps me going, Writing is my expression, which makes life moving. Still not sure- Who am I? Some called me confused, some didn't really care. For others I am an all-rounder; one thing is quite clear, For me life is just unfolding the new spheres.

The Fight For My Life

The Fight For My Life long poem

I’m a prisoner -A prisoner of my mind. I can’t be free. I can’t be me. Locked in by anxiety, interrogated by insecurity, and depression is barricading the door. With no room to breathe, I can feel my lungs collapse
