Heart betrays us all.

Four Little promises
Four different lives.
But the heart betrays them all.
Making promises to do better,
They say, "Hard work is the key it's all that matters".
Burying his nose half mindedly in the inked book to study;
He buries his dreams too.
The beats, the tunes in his mind,
Only set free when he let's his fingers callus from the instrument.
Feeling the texture.
Little promises
But the heart betrays them all.
Making half hearted promises to be an engineer.
Casting aside the paintbrush that peeks,
The world of shades and tones is what his heart seeks.
The strokes of the brush are much more close to him,
Doing engineering, the chances are dim.
Little promises but the heart betrays them all.
Making promises to study abroad.
The army ad makes his heart bleed,
His patriotism is what this country needs.
The national anthem sparkles his eyes more than the scholarship,
All he wants is the camouflage and the battleship.
Little promises but the heart betrays them all.
Promises to be a software developer,
The click click of the mouse is a noise for him.
All it reminds him is the click of his camera.
The colours of life calling him;
The nature so picturesque smiling at him.
Forced to bury his desires,
He does not know anymore what he aspires.
Little promises but the heart betrays them all.
All the fake promises and decisions.
The heart will betray them all;
And one day like a wake up call their promises and hearts will join hands.
Like the amalgamation of rivers, their heart and dreams will amalgamate too.
Happiness and sparkle will run through their veins.
And when happiness takes over your entire body,
You could never be more free.
To follow the path of the right call,
All it takes is to let the heart betray us all.
