Prakash Mehra

About You.

Though the globe appears huge, Yet often I doubt,
A step-up, a step-out, and that’s what is all about.
Few set of ticks to carry, number of miles to chase,
Despite fixed quota, our mammoth desires to raise.

Whilst the tiresome journey, it’s my quest for pause,
An attempt to befriend one with no ifs and clause.
So who, the distinct soul among deep-dense crowd,
Oh, that’s you the melodious, when the rest is loud.

No regrets, if being partial to treat you the better,
for, never the carrying but caring that does matter.
Yes, do value the noble, urge too lock the chamber,
As in fact, it’s my duty, to hold, cheer and pamper.

But pity the gap is same, God knows, I put my best.
Or perhaps, my true tenderness is uneasy to digest.
None can hang in forever, me too human or so ain’t,
Maybe, an easygoing person, but of course, no saint.

What stops me, Or if affection makes my steps small,
But why to be too open hearted, destiny separates all.
Often, such thought of separation makes me worried,
It’s but shell not the soul, that gets burnt or be buried.

    Who is this 'that’s you the melodious'? Too mystic a poem hard to comprehend what is narrated about what. Please be with the theme.[ And delet this comment after reading] Good writing..Beautiful composition but still a bit hard to follow the thread.

    I also share the views of Rajaram Ramachandran. Let me share my views regarding your views. Let us not think too much about the reactions of the world to our honesty and sincerity. We can't practically correct the world for its whims and fancies. What we can do is to remain very honest and straightforward to the true nature of our heart. It will certainly pay off in the long run. Don't we expect these qualities from the world around us? The world also expects it from us. First, let us show it. The world around us will certainly receprocate. The world hasn't gone that cruel. I am sure.

    P.M. It does not have to always be dark out even at night.

    If destiny is what seperates us from the truth

    then I will fate my destiny to put it together
