Reaching the Top! ! !


Reaching the top was never my passion.
Writing and sharing poems is my passion.
Its this passion brought me here.

I love to write poem with free flow.
I cannot stop writing.
Whether I am in top or bottom
Never bother me at all.
I always wanted,
My pleasant voice will speak in poems.
Love to listen to your cool voice too.

If I reach the top,
But none to appreciate,
Will make me worthless,
Rather I prefer to remain down
And loved by all.
After reaching top
Whats the great in it.
Just a look in mirror and have a great laugh!
That's it...
The happiness,
In heart is more important than reaching the top.

Many times in my life
I never participated in race of life.
I always took coolly.
Whether be the relationship or anything.
I will do my best
If I deserve, I will get else not.
I don't regret for loosing any,
Because it was never meant for me,
or I was not meant for it...

Life has taught me to loose always.
Because many times after loosing
I have won it from my heart.
In relationships of life, I am ready
To loose the game rather than to win.

But, I am on top of the world,
when I see happiness on my loved ones face.

I think loosing to win is better
Than winning and loosing everyone!
Its thats what life has taught me.
Whether I am on top or on bottom
I am always the winner in my heart! !

Yes, I am always the winner!

    Geetha, a marked write for sure...this one!
    wisdom is...If I reach the top,
    But none to appreciate,
    Will make me worthless,
    Rather I prefer to remain down
    And loved by all.
    and the following lines:
    Life has taught me to loose always.
    Because many times after loosing
    I have won it from my heart.
    In relationships of life, I am ready
    To loose the game rather than to win....remind me of Elizabeth Bishop's The art of losing isn't hard to master...
    a heart-felt write, very good! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Yes, being at the top never guarentees always joy! At times, there is ultimate joy in losing! So do things to keep us happy and never do anything just to be at the top! ! Inner Happiness is more important than worldly fame! ! Wisely put, Geetha! ! (Report) Reply
