It is your life- Take control!



Life’s taking me for a ride and I’m its rodeo.
Not the kind you would think, not a Spaniard
I’m just the one from my own backyard.


An important crossroad of life I am in.
There’s more to lose than to win
To accept, decline or just think about it,
Decision making is draining a lot of courage and wit

One wrong move and I may have start from the Ice Age.
Nothing that can measure the loss, nor is there a gauge.
Not ready for all the pressure, the face-offs,
I sense the future, all the mock and scoffs.

Even after summoning all my extra- terrestrial strengths
And efforts which extend to inexplicable lengths,
They, those Pummelling thoughts never grow tired drowning my will.
Am I to beguile myself from those dreary thoughts or should I stay still?

Crazy as it may seem, reconciliation (with myself) seems a ghastly task.
That face across the street, is it me or is it just another mask?
The moment has come to ask myself what I want.
Will I give an answer or will I stray? I’m no truant.

Life’s taking me for a ride and I’m its rodeo.
Not the kind you would think, not a Spaniard
I’m just the one from my own backyard.

There is not much to worry, this is not a dirge.
If it is anything, I have let a few things merge.
I’ll set things straight and when I tune the radio,
I’ll hear a new tune- It’s my life and I’m its rodeo!



A rivulet a few miles off Mallelatheertham , into the the jungle. Serenity unlimited!








~~Peace

Wonderful. Many of us go through these times many a times. It drains our courage, will and wit. Agree. But without these moments, life will drain us of passion and interest.

Admire your expression!

Superb rhyme scheme. Could feel the weight of your voice. Something that each of us would have gone through at some part of our lives. Very relate-able.

Happy Rally!

Great poem friend!Loved the thinking dilemmas portrayed here so superbly and its a masterful poem about such moments in life.
"One wrong move and I may have start from the Ice Age.

Nothing that can measure the loss, nor is there a gauge."
That comes off as so true in so many situations in life.
