    If heart was a bowl..

    What will you fill it with,
    Ever nagging thoughts of mistrust,
    or the hope that no night ever lasted forever.

    With the fact that life is so plaid,
    Or may be the belief that Universe has a plan.

    With the reality that Luck has never been kind,
    or with smile at the last sight of rainbow.

    With the fear that I too may die unceremoniously,
    or the will to make it better place just by one step.

    With the worries of past,today or tommorrow ;
    Or the smilies nature offers everyday morning.

    With the disgust that relatives always bitch,
    or the thankfulness that atleast I am not alone.

    With the stack of dead dreams,
    or the million hopes of better today.

    It may never be enough to thank anyone ;
    but atleast we have a bowl, some didnt live long enough to fill

    Dear Ria,
    Lovely poem & lovely thoughts !
    If my heart were a bowl, I would rather
    Empty it of all the unpleasant feelings encountered in life & accumulated therein
    Fill it with all the love and goodwill, I am receiving from my young IL friends, right now !
    I wish to "exit" when the bowl is full !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    wonderful ria,
    but whatever may be the expression it remains a begging bowl where love is concerned, and always sad when not filled and excited when a little filled...sk

    Chitra mam,

    Thanks for coming by. It always pleasure to hear your words of wisdom.

    Sunkan,

    Thanks for reading it.
    You are very right in saying that.. But i read somewhere in rigveda..Begging is must for each one of us, For its the begging which makes us humble , supple and thankful to God.


    Best Regards,
    Ria
