Boredom


You will feel boredom
Even if u reach stardom
Is there any sense or wisdom?
If there is restriction and no freedom

Individuality will be on vane
Total eclipse on thoughts and on brain
Guided by others on important matters
Reading on doted line by merely looking at letters

You have everything at your disposal
Daily new suggestions and big proposals
Acting on device which is so mechanical
Time may come when need advices only medical

Time and tide wait for none
Fame may be enjoyed for self and alone
It has to come by dint of pure ability
Not by simple praise or enough publicity

Wise may absorb with all its ills
Strong will power may prevail and kill
Simple arrogance and false pride
Not allowing unnecessary things to ride

It is sign of simple maturity
Not even small age may need clarity
It is wisdom and clear long vision
That may bring fame with clear precision

Nothing to hide and nothing to seek
Look so powerful and not to look weak
Almighty may help to achieve the goal
As diamonds are dug from thick black coal

You are product of mighty bless
Whatever you get may not be less
You may have long followers and name in press
Simple fact may emerge and you can’t suppress

High rise or fame is matter of essence
You may feel rightly with HIS presence
All names and honour may be useless in his absence
False stardom or freedom may have no sense

    Our vision widens the horizon.If we get engrossed into routines, growth eludes us.
    Our purpose should be to reach the ultimate objective and ignore small routines, otherwise boredom is bound to come. (Report) Reply
