Don’t Sweat The Small Things - Poem by Dipankar Dasgupta

The future is the way it is
Can’t change it so why try
Make the most of this moment
Before you know it will sail by

People around will change color
That’s the norm, but be aware
Get sucked into this whirlpool
It’s your pain, no one to share

First instinct, changing others
But surely an effort in futility
Look in the mirror it can’t lie
Altering that image, its reality

Your folly don’t blame them
Have some courage not its lack
If you hide behind a facade
Surely it will bite you back

Let the Jones and Jacks race
There are no prizes to be won
Life is not but a competition
Be prudent, pace your run

Be thankful for your haves
Look around and know why
Tides change very quickly
Laughter can turn to cry

Lead life the way you choose
Treat all with dignity and grace
But if you try to always please
In time, you will fall on your face
