Gita Ashok


Sometimes...


Sometimes we see, but do not look
Sometimes we hear, but do not listen
Sometimes we know, but do not care
Sometimes we shout, but do not dare.

Sometimes we speak, but not from the heart
Sometimes we race, but only to outdo others
Sometimes we breathe, but do not live
Sometimes we’re there, but do not belong.

Sometimes we hope, even in despair
Sometimes we hurt, even though we care
Sometimes we set out, even with no direction
Sometimes we wait, even though there’s no reason.

Sometimes we want, even though there’s abundant
Sometimes we swim, even though we’re against the current
Sometimes we rejoice, even though there’s sorrow all over
Sometimes we play, even though the game is over.

    Preetam, for everyone in this world, there's a preordained reason to live. It's just that we being myopic fail to see the reason ourselves. Life is that which happens while we are busy figuring out what life is all about! So here's to happy living! ! ! (Report) Reply

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
