WHAT MATTERS...

I I have learnt To be always, myself For no one can ever be me And if am not myself I will be nobody, for I can’t be anybody I have learn To learn as much from Great people from the past and present But never to imitate them Lest I deprive the world of another great person I have learnt that All people is like a seed of potentials If we all shall find separate grounds We shall grow, spread and Bear also fruit with seeds of promises I have learnt To strive ever for the best But to be contented With every little step forward For perfection is a lifetime achievement II I have learnt To stand for and by myself If not, who will be for me? And if I am only for myself What kind of self I am? I have learnt That humans are capable of many extremes And are epitome of fluctuations and oscillations So from all I meet at all time I expect the best, bad and the worst I have learnt that It will not matter What people may think, say or do But what I think, say or do About what they think, say or do I have learnt that All humans are farmers; Who sow thoughts, words and actions Sparingly or bountifully We shall reap manifold as our fruits I have learnt that The best form of living is; To live and enjoy every moment fully For by tomorrow it may be late And yesterday will only drag me back I have learnt that Life is movement So I walk when I cannot run Crawl when I can no longer walk Making sure I never stop or stand still I have learnt that It is not where I have been or seen That matters But where I am And where I will be that counts I have learnt The wisdom of not worrying about tomorrow For one day is too great For human control And twenty –four hours Are too small numbers to worry me IV I have learnt That I what I possess matters not But what possesses me Not what I hold But what holds me I have learnt To acquire so much possession That I can secure in time of flood So much so strong That it can stand onslaught of fire I have learnt that If even I am richer than Bill Gate There are things I never can buy; Air, love, peace, joy, sleep and death I have learnt that If the whole world was mine I could only be in one place at a time So I learn to be generous with my largesse I have learnt That one must be generous But not only with material things But also with a largesse of heart That endures human moments of madness
