The Echo Of What If's.... - Poem by Seema Chowdhury

The waves were rolling
And crashing on the shore
And there
I stood Still
For a moment
On a lonely evening
To Visualize my life
And to witness the change
That was about to happen.....

And there in the middle of all this
I could hear
My fear and what If's echoing
I had no answer
To any of them.........

My life started happening
And every hour started revealing itself
where I tried to guide
My thoughts and dream
Towards unforseen events......

I started searching
For the logical explaination
As I marked off the days
On my calender
As they passed
One by one.......

Then atlast I saw
The tide of my life
Racing and flipping rhythimically
Crashing the fear and what ifs
From the scene
And pushing me away
From the bumpy road
Towards a new begining
With familiar prayers and hope...........

    This lovely poem of self examination, shows us that to live happily we must live only in the present moment, for yesterday has gone and tomorrow never comes. Hope 2010 is very good to you as you live its moments. Regards Bob (Report) Reply
