Slipping Through My Fingers...

Life's been up and life's been down
Given me many a smile and many a frown
I've been a fool though, all along
When I should've done right, I've always done wrong
Much that I've done, better could've been
If beyond my flaws, I could've seen...

I try in vain to hold on
But before I can get a grip, the moment is gone
I'm chasing shadows, in a losing game
And as much as I want, nothing remains the same
For more than a moment nothing lingers
Joy, love, life...slipping through my fingers...

Why does this poem sound so disheartening!?

Mulling Over My Thoughts said...

Hehehe...probably because I'm a little lost n listless. Damn my impulsiveness!

Well my namesake.. thats life but a Brave man is he who knows the wrong and then doesnot make the same mistake and learns

So its part of growing up .. and brave men dont get disheartened.. Get up Stand tall and BRING IT ONnnn...

Ragon main daudte rehne ke nahin hum Kayal
Jo aankh hi se na Tapke Woh
Lahoo Kya hai

everything is like sand that slips thru those damn fingers- maybe we shud start wearing gloves :D

Mulling Over My Thoughts said...

@The Namesake:> man, I keep pioneering completely unique mistakes. Awesome eh?

@Jane:> Nah, gloves wont help much...we'd probably need webbed phalanges or something!

I'd agree with your namesake here: Get up, stand tall and bring it on.

:) That's one piece of valuable advise.

Making mistakes is human. Hurting is being human. Would you rather wake up one day and realize that you never lived, or would you rather 'feel the pain, savour it and survive it'.. LIVE completely, both the joy moments and the sad ones and say to yourself, I am a survivor?

What you find slipping through your fingers is over and done with.. you are making space for new joys, new love and new experiences.
