Middle path

what’s the fun emptying without filling up 
what’s the fun in end without living it full
how can you shrink it without expanding 
how can you fall from it without climbing
to break something, just take it to extreme
to keep it alive forever, take a middle path
is that why nature keeps renewing forever 


obstacles on the path ahead 
detours in the chosen path ahead
are common for everyone in every route
finding a round about route ahead
exploring the possibilities all around 
are fine as long as you wish to be there
else find a way to get back to your route
without being swayed away all around 
purposeful explorations are enriching 
distractions are wasteful exploitations


the path to reach higher ground
is tough and filled with all the risk
when you reach the peak and look beyond
all you see is the void below 
and the echo of your own voice
how long can you live in clouds 
the void below looks so deep 
but a valley filled with life, love and colour 
a place for every living being and beyond
you can live all along and the way you like
do you have to go up and see the void
to know what you have in hand all along


entertainment is our way to wander
when tiered, bored or to wonder
is it our way to distance from reality
and fall prey to the illusion of possibilities 
is it our way to exaggerate pain or pleasure
and feed our mind with power of illusion 
isn’t it a better way to engage and deliver
hard truths of life in an appealing way
to entertain your interests and goal to be
than create diversion and lose the way


when we say change is natural
do we say the change is effortless 
change like the cycle of day and night
changes like the seasons in a year
who’s effort and who’s in control 
for every change in this nature 
autopilot mode of nature is its power
to create relentlessly and beautifully 
when our work attains that maturity
does our creativity becomes so natural 
is that why effortless fluency is the quality 
that makes you remarkable 


if you are asked how far you traveled
how further more you have to go
in the journey of life that you lead
what’s your answer, in what terms
if you like to travel to an unknown place
what preparation you make and how thorough
why not the same for the journey of life
is it because it’s just in your mind you travel
no clear goal, no necessary path 
life paves it’s way with you just in the mix
wake-up and check, is it a dream in real


Is lifelessness is death or timelessness 
what runs out in this life with no control
universal truth everyone likes to ignore
what remains is a fading memory 
which also runs out with time 
why worry about death or memories 
if living well is all what we can control 
death is the opposite of time 
embrace your time and make it count 


setbacks and failures are part of life 
when the best of nature falls apart
on its own fury of a storm or tsunami
the grit to learn, adapt and rise again 
is what makes it stronger than before
be it nature or our very own desire
has its way to sprout, rise and fly again
pain is temporary and doesn’t last longer
than your desire to get back up and run again


nature has a flow gifted by its rhythm 
everything follows a pattern in its rhythm 
makes it rich and always progressive 
there’s nothing that’s random than our life 
letting mind rule everything we can 
we lose the rhythm and the flow of life
how can randomness take us anywhere 
how can randomness bring what we desire 
stay focused on course to get somewhere 
sowing random seeds won’t fetch you anything
