CONTEMPLATION!



It seems like only a few days ago,
when we embraced 2016.
And here we are again, at the brink of it,
almost ready to fall in 2017,
whose waiting with bated breath 
to see its victims squandering yet another year,
 living in mediocrity, without contemplating their actions
and playing everything by ear.

Time fleets.
And we struggle to match its pace,
running fast to win the race.
Decisions once taken are never
 pondered upon ever again.
Life, we lived years ago,
as colorless, riskless and dull,
is being still lived the same, again and again!

The 'fast forward' mode is always on.
We never pause to rewind our life
and think for just a moment,
"Is this the life I always want?"
Contemplation is the first baby step
towards our aspirations,
as it instills in us the power
to take resolute decisions.

Life whizes by quicker than we think.
Before we reach our graves,
before it is too late,
snatch a minute from it to mull over our existence
and to CONTEMPLATE!

  1. Good msg through this poem, to realize life more deeply you have to spend sometime for contemplation but i doubt how many will agree to take a pause and how many times.... it can affect the RACE.

      Well, I feel it is better to pause and think for a moment about your life so that you can take much sensible decisions towards our goals rather than just running in a rat race.

  2. A beautiful message Prachi. I was also just remembering the posts that I wrote heralding the new year. And now it is time to say goodbye. Time flies. Zips. And before we realize, we end up with the feeling of not living the life to its fullest when we had the chance.
