Life’s secrets. Wonders of life

   I always often wondered what the reason or secret of life is! Why people call things as wonders... Material things can be seen and touched but in process of life we never realised that in the course of seeing all these material things we are ignoring the most significant life’s truth; the nitty-gritties are the actual miracles and wonders of life. Most magnificent creation of god are the ones we use all the time and what’s happening daily. For example isn’t it a wonder or a miracle that sun rises every day and it sets every day. It’s a blessing, wonder what will happen to us when and if this process is stopped?
  Few days ago one of my best friends Shamshad Khan took one of most sensational photographs I have ever seen. Though I know she is brilliant photographer and seen most of her work. This photograph made me ruminate about these wonders of life. My first thought when I saw the picture was “sensational, how amazing can god's creation be...” . Second thought was no man made thing is as amazing as what we see around... Everywhere we go any country and place the scenery is so different yet so alike. Keeps us wondering and thinking this must be it the most beautiful/wonderful place on earth. But no everywhere, everything is made in its fullest as it should be. And our thoughts defer as we see different places and different things.

  I thought about this for many days  and came to conclusion that as we are different from each other though we are all human beings may be  for each person how they see life and how they see secret of life  or wonders is different. It took time to understand the nature of many things. It took years to know what is important in life and what not.  So in that account i realised for everyone it’s different, so I decided to make a list of seven wonders of life in my own thinking which is weird because when I finished my list (trust me I really never finished my list but forced myself to stop) I had thirteen not seven, I tried to cut some off to make it seven but couldn’t do it. So I thought why not I’ll have my list of thirteen wonders rather than seven. And again this made me wonder “wow, I got my 14th definite wonder; changing thoughts and behaviour”. So in the end I had fourteen wonders. And I realised we can’t ever catch up with destiny or life’s secrets as its ever changing process, and that way life’s secrets can’t be grasped…

Found this written is piece of paper in one of my old journals...

Give me a holler
I have lost myself
(Don’t know) when i woke up
(Don’t know) when i slept
I will die if I be far from you

I started looking at your eyes
I started loving life
I had been fearless to death before
But now started worrying

In the first rain of the monsoon
I witnessed all my dreams at one night
Hope this life does not pass by
In only one meeting (with u!)

You be in front of me don't go
I have got to say something to u don't go
The season of love
Will not come back again

*Found this written is piece of paper in one of my old journals... I am sure I didn’t write it but it touched my heart so much wanted to share

Tears from soul, less from eyes

I knew it was coming yet my heart never took it
Surprises are no more; it’s just a look they give,
Days flew and I knew it will hit me hard
Stronger the emotion my soul just cried
Pale was my face, colours draining though I tried

How strong I can be I never knew
Failing to accept the fact was tricky
Blur the day went still had I to stay intact
Hard it was not to show my core
Breaking I was inside no one saw

Surrounding was a show, grasping the time
No tears came from eyes but soul broke in parts
Onus was all I had, to finish what I started
Stood there watching, able to do nothing
How humans are so impotent

Yet we believe we have control,
Only when we lose a battle we know
We are nil and we all have to go in the end
Fall a cliff or go in peace
Leaving a tale of your being to all
Place where only a prayer can be send

My soul cried when you went, though I know it was time
Best it was for you, but feelings don’t agree
Moments I couldn’t take, for the pains you had
Hard to let go, tough to keep together
No one knew my soul is scared beyond restore
Feels like I can’t make it anymore
Tears flow from my soul less from my eyes…

To my father, will never forget you.. for all those moments..miss u forever

The tears of my heart forever

The tears of pain are oozing away
Even if I pass away from this world
You will still remain in my heart
Your memories will linger in my heart forever
I’ve become forlorn
Your love I have been deprived of
Lonesome and hopeless I have become…
The tears of pain are oozing away

There is no escape from the pricks of this pain and grief
Today there is no one to see my hopeless condition
There is no one to aid me, but you alone
I wish to give my heart to no one but you
My heart wishes to see no one but you
My heart is over shadowed by this ill-fate…
Even if I pass away from this world
You will still remain in my heart
Your memories will linger in my heart forever
You will still remain in my heart

The tears of pain …
Never mind even if my soul leaves my body…
And even if my bones disintegrate into soil
I will love you

I’ll always cherish you in my heart
There’s no way darling that your memories
Would fade away from my heart
Even if my heart stops beating I will never stop loving you
You are the pure love of my heart that will never fade away
My heart was filled with such sweet hope
 I so badly wanted to live my life with you
However, I am deprived of that luck in this world
That, on the written destiny cannot be changed
My heart assures me that I can get your everlasting love in heaven
My heart wishes to meet you hence forth

The tears of pain are oozing away

Letting go...

Easy to let go…
Desperately dropping your soul low
One hint to stand up
One dream for someone to catch up
Faster to run
Yet never know the fun
Holding inside you
Going mad like zoo

Refresh your Heart
Don’t let go on your part
Click with your dreams
Never fear the screams

Breathe slowly as your heart beats
Wait till your breath and soul meet
Find a way to Hold
Coz your soul is worth more than Gold
