Rookie - 20 Points (24 September 1976 / Eluru, AndhraPradesh, India)


As I dwindle down on the bed staring at the roof
Feeling alone, sick, self pitied and rather aloof
Where is the energy that made me dance around gone?
Why are the smiles replaced by never ending frown?
Sulk in the mind, with no physical energy left behind
Staring at the medicos who try to fix me up in kind
As the struggle to breath engulfs my senses to ditz
I remember all the days I abused my body in daze
Never did I listen to my body that is prime for me to live
I just ate and merrier as if this body would ever cooperate
When the tired parts of the body refused to listen to me anymore
I know, what ever may be the strength of my mind, I am gone
But the will of the mind, to make the body come back normal again
Will let me fight the diseases that threaten me today and often
At times, I am baffled in pain, intolerant to the trauma
Wish this day could be the last of mine, if I don't feel fine
Yet, trying to get back my health is my goal than whine
Where is the peace of mind, when the trouble of brain
Is so maddening with the failing health to disdain
As we change our lifestyles, listen to our body
Keep the routine in check and keep our habits tidy
We can improve from any illness and get back our health
This is undoubtedly the only biggest wealth
A happy mind, healthy body makes a peaceful soul
Far away from the earthy tensions and growl
Wishes are many, and expectations are too many
Then there can be no normal peace and harmony
Knowing to care for our body and mind in peace
Nothing but we alone can bring our own peace!
