A Right Choice

Updated on January 1, 2015

Other Beings in Nature

Can the Sun stop shining anytime or anywhere ?

Clouds obscure him sometimes and disappear,

The Sun can't leave his home,

He has to shine forth constantly,

Has to dance at the feet of eternity.

Clouds can't withstand the heat and are scattered,

The Sun is not to close his eyes ever,

And to never mind filth,décor,thorns or buds,

Perverse or pious,holy or heinous whoever they may be.

He enters everything and everywhere,

And in every mind high or low,

He penetrates hard his light into the heart of sky,

Clouds perish to quench thirst of everyone,

They give birth to pretty rainbows in the sky,

They come down to excite the fragrance of soil,

And touch elegant beauties and spread splendor in all.

The Earth,heavy with her breasts caresses all,

She has to feed all,she can't refuse ever.

Trees, plants and animals,all sing the same songs,

Their minds know no intense thoughts,

And how to merge into love everything even self,

Their hearts lack the heated passion,

And how to enter deep and hear the hidden songs,

They can't deny or agree,

They can't plead and complain,

They have to endure pain and pleasure,hugs and stabs,

Everything whatever hits them.

The Sun,the Moon, the Earth,plants and animals,

All these have no choice, no freedom, no will at all,

They are made this way.

Man Makes his Destiny

Man stands tall above them all,

He is not made this way,

He sits idle relishing leisure or toils endlessly,

Thinks so high or just runs wild,insane and indolent,

Wanders in streets as vagabond,

Or has grand mansions to stay.

He has always a choice before him,

To keep moving or just stand still,

To accept his fate or to rebel against,

He wields free will, badly hates or madly loves,

Spurns arrogantly or calmly comes closer.

He can't suffer too long or can endure too much,

When he gathers much,can't bear to lose it,

Can't see his decline, cries to find him in the dust,

Can't tolerate losing his power to hold on,

Can't see the abyss,the bottom looks too scary,

Suffering withers him,sorrow drowns him.

He is not made to not feel abuses or arrows of misery,

The pain of losing shine,the anguish in his heart,

Wishes dried up, cheers snatched away,

He can't afford to be mute,he can revolt and rebel against,

The cruel destiny before him,the worst face of his existence.

He is not made to witness in silence any extreme,

Aware that he has always a choice,

His mind provokes him when pushed hard,

His heart wails when stormed in the face,

His soul clamors to find peace ,

To live or to die,

To fight fierce or to yield never to rise again,

To come back or to stay no more.

He sometimes gives up,

And becomes still and silent,

Or wakes up to cause wonders,

And defeat death by living hard,

He is made this way.

Man ! you are so blessed and are made to conquer,

So make the right choice,

Since you are so ahead and so wonderful,

Keep the dark forces away,

How venomous the world becomes,

You have to tame it by your winning smile,

Babbling heart and rocky mind.

Your loved ones want to see you this way,

Make your journey last at any cost,

With all mature experiences of losses and wins,

Storms and gentle breezes.

      It is hard my friend to accept that we above all make our own choices. That we must stay vigilante in our actions be them in love or contempt. We are not fatalistic. And we cannot shirk our responsibility.

      What a beautiful piece to remind us of our great lives though they be hard at times.

      One of my favorite quotes is by an old Doctor and it stays with me daily: "If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two impostors just the same" Kipling

      You have brought beauty into my life this day, I am grateful for you.

      Eric, I read a sad news that a businessman, fed up with his life,committed suicide along with nine family members by plunging his car into the Bhakhra Canal. This made me so painful and prompted to pen the above words. It is so nice of you to have read it and offered kind comments. Yes, you are right, we should face all ups and down with equanimity and courage. Thank you very much.

      Yes, Nadine, we should make our choice assuming us as strong and full of endless possibilities even those undreamed of ever. Glad that it interested you and made you think. Thank you very much.

      fpherj48, so kind of you to treat it as thoughtful and I agree that we must shine in our glory instead of running away meekly. We have to face life despite it's offerings unsavory or blissful. Glad that you spared your time to read it and give an so elaborate comment. Thank you very much. And yes, much..........much...........much peace. Have a nice day.

      Wonderful poem with such deep message!

      This made me think. Often we feel depressed due to unfavourable situations in life. But the fact remains that we can turn things in our favour with string will power, patience and perseverance.

      Well done and thanks for sharing such inspiring poem!

      Harishprasad. Well done! Your writing just continues to grow and get better and better. This was the perfect poem with an undeniable message for us all. I loved every word, you described the natural world and man's nature and how we are the only species given 'free will' perfectly. I hope we all take note and make the most of our time on Earth. Voted up.

      John, you have been always very encouraging to me and you pour out so nice words while commenting. You are right that we should take note of our whole existence, in fact, everybody of us is very unique. While some succeed to have a glimpse of it, others remain in the dark. We all have to awaken that spirit in us and never lose our grip on life. Glad that you liked and appreciated it. Thank you very much.

      Yes, a sizable chunk of humanity is in pitiable circumstances and the onus is on the vibrant and prosperous people to clear the mess and uplift the lives of their less fortunate fraternity. Eric, your this comment is welcome and greatly valued and appreciated. Thank you very much.
