After A While - Poem by Shilpa Shastry

After a while you realize that your life’s dragging
And you should start living

After a while you learn that being practical isn’t same as living
And you start loving

After a while you control the direction of your life’s compass
And wish this moment shouldn’t pass

After a while you realize giving need not involve loving
But loving is all about giving

After a while you discover the hidden meaning of your life
And realize the futility of the taken strife

After a while you see things from other’s eye
And complicated strings begin to untie

After a while you are satisfied with everything
And feel blessed with a special ‘something’

After a while you look into the mirror
And find a new person

And life’s suddenly
got a beautiful new reason

That 'After a while' comes to everybody
And changes the 'anybody' to 'somebody'!
