One Day

One day

One day I shall lay down the arms

And stop fighting for a lost cause

One day I shall stop self-destructing

And perhaps shall condemn my sins

One day I shall a spare a thought

for the people I hurt,for the broken hearts

One day I shall reconnect with reality

And fall back on this barren earth

One day I shall wake up from my nightmares

And surround myself with worldly fears

One day I will regret my actions of today

One day I will shed a drop of tear.

But not today-

Today I chase my heart’s desire.

Hehe it does seem kind of like the poem I wrote the other day.
Loved it...you have voiced your refusal to give in to life's expectations quite well. :)

Nethra said...

Its like you are making a resolution and then postponing it when it comes to doing it. I do it all the time. Nice poem! :)

Anish said...

@samadrita-In a way it kinda is...all around there are naysayers who judge your actions but do not share your dream...and to do what you want sometimes you have to do things which hurt other people in the process...actios people would condemn..things which one shouldn't be proud of.....but the end justifies the means....

Anish said...

@nethra-the resolutions are an inevitability...they have to be done sometime that's for sure...but for now I want to do what I like..basically it's not worrying about the consequences...just doing what your heart wants...
