Winning… Surviving?

Aditi Gala:

Wondering why You are always left behind??

The painful, seemingly endless struggle…
Some reach the Zenith…Some barely a few steps above the bottom…

Why does this happen?
Whose fault is it anyway?
Fate, Destiny, God, Religion, Parents, Country?
Crap…its all your own!
Blame anything You Wish…
And that’s what You’ll end up doing all Your Life!

Ancestors gave us umpteen warnings,
Nature proved it time and again,
Life is but a battle…
Weak versus Strong,
Truth versus False,
Winning versus Loosing.

Struggling to find the answers…
And endless number of times…
The same old question…
“What’s the secret of success”?
As Socrates did…Go Drown yourself in water.
And when You struggle to come up…
Thats when You will alas know the Big Answer!

Just two ways…No mid-way,
Either drown deep down in the miseries of nothingness,
Or Rise…Rise high above…So the sky is Your Equal…
Tired of struggling?
Tasted Failure time and again?

Just a Look Within…
A small voice tweeting with Rock-Solid Faith…
“I Will. Everything is mine to conquer.”
For Once…Erase Boundaries,
Banish Fear…
Feel the Wind…Breathe…Live…
Bask in your own Glory…
Say a Thank —you,
For all that You have been blessed With…
Its either Now…or its Never!
