"....have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Just wondering...

If you weren’t here today
Breaking bread; making toast
Where else would you be?
Raking head; crossing coasts

If you weren’t this old
Crossing legs; dreadful boasts
How young were you?
Drinking pegs; thinking ghosts

If you hadn’t failed
Making faces; shedding tears
How would you recognize success?
Taking paces; gulping beers

If this path you hadn’t taken
Pleasing people; forcing smiles
Would you have followed your heart’s desire?
Chasing tweeple; making piles

If you had never broken up
Being nice; breaking hearts
Would you know true love?
Much more wise; playing the right parts

If you weren’t slogging night and day
Pulling socks; tying ties
Would you be bungee jumping?
Over rocks; tasting pies

If you were not earning just this much
Listening Shakira; dreaming big
Would you be a millionaire?
Drowning tequilas; taking digs

If you weren’t moonstruck
Singing songs; moaning wrongs
Would you be starstruck?
Earning dollars; lifting collars

If you had lived a perfect life
Racing cars; raking galleons
Will you have ever learnt?
Braving scars, life’s true medallions?

Dear god...

Of all the winds
That blow
Is there one?
That my way will go?

For every breeze
Rustling it’s way
Amongst the trees
Will there be one?
That unto me will sway?

In every cuckoo’s call
Floating through the air
During every fall
Is there ever one?
Meant for me to care?

As the leaves busy bustle
On hearing the bird’s sound
That sit on their branches and rustle
Could there be one?
That falls for me unto the ground?

In every lashing wave
That the shores get hit
Will it be me you’ll save?
From every obstacle grave?

Through every sun’s beam
The dust sparkles in it’s ray
Shining upon a timeless dream
Will it be me?
Who’ll get showered with your magical spray?

From every thought divine
Which journeys through crossroads
A path, I see shine
Is that the one?
That’ll lead me through this episode?

For every love
Yearns to fill you to the brim
Yet you need shove
Is this the destiny?
To which you want me to swim?

What you feel unto me
Is what I feel unto you
For what you never see
Is what I was meant to do

A pearl?
A diamond?
What exactly is it?
Close your eyes and quietly sit
You’ll carve your treasure as you see fit

If not for now
Then will it be tomorrow?
You’ll manifest your love
Unto me free of any sorrow?

I have waited long
Yet I know you’ll come
I know I won’t be wrong
To say it’s through your heart 
You’ll seek me from

The moon’s up high
The tides are lashing
It’s time I need buy
To hold you from crashing

Shiny and bright
Is not all am made of
Shimmery and tight
You think of me and scoff

You need know this
I’ve been yours always
With one golden kiss
You can summon me to the surface

I can feel your pace
Getting closer and closer
It’s your only race
You dare dread being a loser

You cannot resist
Neither your dreams or destiny
Coz that’s what persists
Inspite of your screams or lustiny

Believe in me
Make me yours
Trust in me
Above everything you’ll soar

A l’il faith is all I ask
As bright as gold you’ll shine
T’is in endless glory you’ll bask
As long as you are mine.
