Life : A paradox of sorts

images (5)

‘Ignorance is bliss’- I had heard,

But one living in it, is called a jerk.

Living is such a paradox here,

And then they say, the world is a sphere.

 

If this was true,

what goes, should come back to you,

But neither people nor time do.

 

They say its good to dream-

“Dream as if life’s a song”

Then they say,

“Get up and move,

life and dreams don’t get along!”

 

They say live in today, forget your past,

For your future,  raise the mast.

I say,

“Future is obscure, today’s gonna end”,

So, lets not pretend!

Truth is, “Only the past stays with you, till the end”.

 

When I question life,

I am crazy, I am being told.

But when it all thrusts upon them,

Why cannot they withhold.

 

What is life?

“Yes, i cannot understand”,

But those who do,

Still don’t give me a hand.

 

I want to fly and be free,

“You can do it –  have wings”

But then they say,

“You can’t live on a tree”.

 

Most beautiful is to be a child,

When I tried to remain one,

Why did you go wild?!

 

Its you –  who killed the child in me,

Why complain?

“The world is’nt the way it should be”.

 

“Live to the fullest,

Life is about to go”…

Then why do you tell me to go slow.

When I run, you tell me to walk,

Do you ever walk the talk!

 

When I laugh out loud,

“U laugh too much”,

And when I don’t,

“U shouldn’t be such”.

 

When You cry – Its pain.

When I do – Its insane!

 

When I don’t ask,

“U are not interested”,

And when I do,

“U just don’t get it!”

 

The paradox doesn’t end here –

What goes, never comes back,

And then they say, the world is a sphere !!!
