  • What life is upto I have no clue,
    Neither the picture of the success nor that of the happiness,
    Resembles anything I once drew,
    Though family and friends form a bunch of helping crew,
    Most important battles of the life involve only YOU!
    All of the above seemed philosophy not long ago,
    And how time has flew!
    Sometimes I realize happiness is all about the people I hangout with,
    Then comes a time when everything external seems to be a myth,
    So do I go deep inside myself or do I just dwell outside?
    Do I need to find answers or do I just enjoy the ride?
    Should I redefine happiness and success?
    If yes, then why I am waiting since no one needs to grant me access.
    So what exactly makes me happy?
    Is it the money or is it someone else’s approval?
    Is it avoiding the chaos and problems which seem all perennial?
    Is it the acceptance of life as is or is it its denial?
    Is it freedom to excel in what I want to do or is it just survival?
    Sometimes it seems awfully complicated and then,
    You feel this amazing sense of happiness in life events seeming so trivial!
    Modern age definition of life and progress seems to be moving,
    from education loan to the housing loan!
    If this is true; don’t we all become each other’s clone,
    May be it is time we reconsider taking the path which was once shown.
    All the truths of life are meant to be hazy,
    Hence people who try to question them are termed crazy,
    But I do want to question whatever I once knew,
    There is no arrogance or an intention to rebel,
    There is only curiosity to renew,
    Again there are doubts if I am even ready for such a slew,
    But I will have to go ahead with this effort,
    Since any which way what life is upto I will never have a clue!
