These Small Little Things

A laughing child,

A rickshaw ride,

A flying kite,

A full moon night,

The morning tea on my bed,

The evening walk with my pet,

The snowy endless mountains,

The wind, the clouds, the sudden rains,

A beautiful home and a garden of my own,

A new text message on my phone,

An unexpected call from an old friend,

A new dress from the latest trend,

A melodious song I heard today,

A flock of birds playing in the clay,

The green rice fields and their flowing spikes,

The comments on my blog, and the dozen likes,

These small little things never crossed my mind,

I never felt they exist, I guess I was blind.

Because,

As I really opened my eyes and looked around for a while,

I saw a thousand things,

Found a thousand reasons that make me smile.

Would You Like You, If You met You?

You look tired,

Your hair is out of place,

There’s sadness in your eyes,

And dullness on your face.

Tell me,

Would you like you if you met you,

If that was the case?

You’ve isolated yourself,

There’s no one you could call,

No one would lend a hand,

If the next moment you fall.

Tell me,

Would you like you if you met you,

Just passing by the mall?

You’ve dreams,

Not a will to make them true.

You wish to fly,

But scared to try anything new.

Tell me,

Would you like you if you met you,

It that was something you were asked to do?

You’ve lost hope,

You don’t believe in god anymore,

Every turn in your life,

Those moments, the drive,

Now make you bore.

Tell me,

Would you like you if you met you,

Just ask your heart’s core?

You don’t love you,

You don’t believe.

You don’t trust you,

You don’t achieve.

Tell me,

Would you like you if you met you,

If this is the way you are going to live?
