Looking Back?

Since ages, this world of ours has been divided into the Past, the Present and the future. All of our lives’ moments, small or big, good or bad, were, are and will be matters of these three elements of time. 

 
However, many of us have a tough time coping up with whatever bad has happened in the past and we carry it to our present. We were hurt, committed a great mistake, were a part of something that we aren’t proud of, had a troubled childhood, a troubled love life or a troubled marriage for that matter. Such events take a piece of ourselves each time we think about it. Each time we relive it in our heads. But is it really not in our control? Well here’s the answer to this question. 

Whatever I say, I say from my own experiences. It is solely a matter of an individual choice how one goes about dealing with his/her past. Some take a lot of time letting go than the others. But I wanna tell you one secret here that, if we want to live a happy and positive life, It’s high time we stop dwelling over the past and focus on the present. When we start letting go, we make room for better things to come and mend our lives in the best way possible. If we waste time looking back on what we have lost, we will never get out of it and keep drowning into the vicious circle of past happenings. This life we live is a gift from our heavenly father, and by dwelling over the past issues, all we are doing is taking it for granted. 

Life was never meant to be easy, all the difficulties we face and come over are only to polish us into shining diamonds. But only those who make peace with their past, accept it and move on will attract the best aspects for the present. Yesterday is gone, and what’s done is done! Losing Ourselves on the possibility of what could have been done is not justified. Life is never meant to be traveled backwards, it can only be understood better from the past experiences. We can learn from our past but we must always live in the present and hope the best for the future. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is yet to come. Amidst of all this we have just got today, don’t you think we should make the best out of it?  

 

It’s being here Now that’s the most important thing and that’s all that matters, the ‘Present’, The ‘Today’. My friends, time is a very misleading thing, All there ever is the ‘Now’. We can look back in the past and gain experiences and learning from it but we cannot relive it or make it better. All we need to do is gather the past experiences to make the present better and best as it can get. Moreover, we can hope for the future, but we never know if there is any.  Past is a black ghost, and the more you fear it the more it will snatch away the happiness out of you!

 

All you need to do is let go and move on towards a better today and a brighter tomorrow! Just a matter of thought!

Wait – A Message from God

Wait for the sunshine on your darkest of days,

Wait till the morning breeze touches your face,

Wait till the moonlight bathes you at night,

Wait for the adversities to turn out alright.

Wait for the noises to turn into melody,

Wait for the dull days to end up merrily.

Wait, Oh Sweet child Just wait a little longer,

‘Coz my trials for you are to make you stronger.

 -From God By Soniya Agrawal

Little Things

Little things bring us so much joy,

An angel shaped cloud,

A child playing with a toy.

A walk by the beach,

The sound of the rain.

Soothes our hearts and relieves the pain.

Little things in life,

Have a huge impact on us.

The love of your life,

Could be that stranger in the bus!

It’s only from the little things,

That we build up our lives,

Only because of these little things,

We gather the courage to survive,

And into the unknown, we  take a dive.

Angel In Disguise

An angel in disguise,

told me to rise

above my pain, above my suffering,

The angel held my hand

and took me from cold winters to the blossoming spring.

The angel in disguise,

caressed my head.

Warmed my heart

Which was until now Dead.

The angel in disguise

taught me to hope. 

against all odds,

It gave me the strength to cope.

The angel in disguise,

Forever stays with me.

Makes me a better person everyday

And with it by my side, I feel free.

Darkness

As the night drapes the earth,

and the stars begin to shine.

Oh! What beauty darkness brings,

around it our lives entwine.

We embrace the darkness,

sometimes without the light

Why do we feel so lost?

even when the days shine bright.

‘Coz it’s our heart and only ours,

that truly accepts rumination of our soul.

The darkness comes again,

And the night galores.

Closer to Home

When I think about life,

And all I’ve done till now.

Sometimes I think oh no!

And sometimes I scream wow!

Life is a cluster of great possibilities,

To let us strive harder, and explore our abilities

We are all experimenting with ourselves,

Sometimes in colour and sometimes monochrome,

But all I want to go is a little closer to home.

It’s not any place, not even a person.

It’s just a feeling of being at peace,

Where the thoughts don’t worsen.

A haven I need, I don’t want to roam,

All I want to go is a little closer to home.
