"The Challenge"

Oh my life, take me through the days,
Where I don’t envy anyone’s success;
Where I don’t mind anyone’s comments;
Where I live my life in the way I want to;
Where I respect my soul more than anyone;

Oh my life, take me through the days,
Where I get inspired of criticism;
Where I breathe the spirits of humanism;
Where I walk through the way I love;
Where I admire the most possible;

Oh my life, take me through the days,
Where I can prove myself to my soul;
Where I can accept people to their core;
Where I don’t get angry to shout at people;
Where I live life with the calmest reality;

Oh my life, take me through the days,
Where I won’t speak about people in their absence;
Where I won’t regret for being so stern at times;
Where I accept my mistakes with a humble sorry;
Where I don’t mind to give away the most wanted;

Now, the biggest question…

WHO will take me through all these?

LIFE…!!!!

Though I knew the answer, I failed to enlighten it so far. I believed that time would change my feelings, my heart slowly. But NO. Suddenly, today morning I was woken up by a thought saying that “Time is what we live it and Life is what we make it”…and hence I got realized that I shall take myself through all the above said possibilities. I shall be responsible for every single aspect.

This is how I want to take this challenge of life…

I will write a post with my achievements on next December 6th. I will tell you how many of the above ones could come make it to my lap.

I’m responsible for everything that happens in my life; Either good or bad; Either success or failure; Either enjoyment or sadness; Either life or death; I’m the only person who is responsible for myself;

This is the challenge which I’m accepting today for a better tomorrow. Please wish me all the best. Thank You.

PS: If I did bother you with many “I”s in this post, I’m so sorry. I too hate the fact that it has got many “I”s in it, but yes, it had to be like that.

"I’m responsible for everything that happens in my life"

I always wonder are we really responsible for what ever happens in our life! Of course we are responsible for the choices we make. But then we make the choices with no clue what the out come is going to be, right?!

Pramoda, life sure takes us through a lot of things...Heaven and hell are both right here on earth dearie...Lovely poem! Vices many a times seem dominating than the virtues...but ultimately, what one does is what seems right to that person alone cause lot of things are subjective in life! So wishing you the best to achieve all that YOU desire!

Amity Me said...

Naive and innocence are not for the world. Follow conscience judiciously and you'll pen less of such soul searching poems.

Ria said...

LOVELY POEM!! :)

Tanmaya said...

"Time is what we live it, Life is what we make it"!!!! The best lines said...
Iam from the same school of thought too.. though many disagre.. i refuse to let others be responsible for my life. I refuse to to blame them and I refuse to let them be responsible!!
That you have realised it is a beginning in itself.. now no one can stop you from succeeding.. for the simple reason that they have no right to.
And by the way.. though it sounds egoist.. I is good. for, its YOUR life.

Vittaldas Prabhu said...

First, the "I" is not what it is portrayed to be. "I" does not have to portray ego. Frankly, it does not. And those preach "I" is ego, are trying to fight their own ego.

Back to this post, the poem is so nice. It is one of those days when you sit and "really" think of life. Think if this is how you wished to live life - indifferent, self-centred, selfish, envious, angry, frustrated, and so on. These are the days you "listen" to yourself. All of this is very brilliantly put in the stanzas. But remember, life is very short as well. So don't take yourself too seriously.

Wishing you all the best - to be cheerful, lovely and lively. Cheers. :-)

madan said...

Being Pramoda... said...

of course we can only choose and work, but ya, i dont agree to say that my life is not in my hands, somehow i stick to what i said.. somethings may infuense our lives, but influence can no more work until u accept and u bow your head to it.. this is what i feel. Thanks for ur opinion Sojo.
