Change your Mind, Change your Life

My vision is set,

It is clear and still the same.

There was a time when you saw it, too.

And described its beauty with clarity.

But if your eye has shifted,

And no longer sees it also,

Then you and I will walk on different paths,

Going towards different visions.

I enjoyed hearing your footsteps so far

As we stepped towards a longed-for journey.

But our minds,

Like our lives,

Are our own dominion,

In which we choose our destination,

And forge our destiny.

I despise yet celebrate your impulse

To perennially chase the brightest thing that glitters,

And let your passion carry you to new experiences and crossroads,

Even if it leads you far away from me.

There will always be room for one more in my path,

If you ever decide to regroup.

As for me,

I must keep moving forward,

Towards a goal that has been waiting far too long.


Insincere Love

Insincere love is the predominant element

Between those two.

Greater than earth, wind, water, fire,

The love with insincerity inundates their company,

And as the days turn to months,

The two forget their insincerity,

And leave it behind as they walk against the wind,

Into the horizon…

Being nothing-

But in sincere love.

Sign Posts

When the sign posts show you are going the wrong way,

The hills incline upwards against your journey,

And the wind pushes you away along your path,

You know that the world has conspired to hold you back.

But your goal is not optional,

Your vision is too clear,

Your dream is too lucid,

And your faith is too strong,

To be stopped.

You made a commitment to yourself,

That you would see it all through,

And even if you yourself want to quit,

Your word will happen.
