Have you pondered for a while?
What have you gained running all this mile?!
Did you even have time to slow down & enjoy?
The sweet nothings of life, the unseen joy?!
What did you get after accumulating all the wealth?
Sleepless night, work-life imbalance & deteriorating health!
Why do you still want for more?
When your platter is full to the core!
What if you let loose for a while?
And do something to bring a smile…
On the face of a stranger who was sad,
Someone whose day was hopeless & mad…
What if you bowed down in gratitude for the most trivial thing?
Something that you had taken for granted, without reasoning?
Such as, a life full of kindness & care,
A life full of compassion, warmth & share.
What if you didn’t bother what others would say?
And live your life in utmost hay!
What if you enlightened someone’s day?
With your act of kindness without any pay!
Why your focus is only on you & your gain?
Why don’t your eyes moisten when you see others in pain?
Is it because there was no one to wipe away yours?
Or is it because of excuses & fears?
What say? An act of kindness or meanness?!
The former is difficult, and the latter is easy;
But as you sow so you reap,
Which one would you like to treasure & keep?
