A pursuit of happiness,
The reason to be,
The reason to wake up in the morning,
The reason to see,
The beauty, the nature, the evolution,
Life survived for millions of years in every situation,
But no one knows how it got created,
In religious texts it’s stated,
That God created man,
But scientists have other theories,
But no one is certain or sure,
But I know one thing,
Empathy, compassion for fellow being,
That’s what matters most,
The common people of this planet,
The farmers in their fields working,
The scientists in laboratories researching,
The students in universities learning,
Just keep the fire burning,
To keep a warm heart, not cold,
Keeping traditions new and old,
Pondering, questioning, along this ride,
Always having patience, tolerance inside,
To hear difference of opinion,
Helping people in need,
Doing a good deed,
Happiness you’ll receive,
Always be honest, never deceive,
And let’s make this world a better place,
To save life, to save the human race.
I am just so sick and tired,
Of being always inspired,
By all these goals,
Filling these holes,
In my life and in my heart,
I just want to leave all behind to depart,
And to go to a new land,
A meadow land, not a shadow land,
But when will my adventure start,
Sitting here throwing the dart,
When it never lands in the middle,
Life is not a question but a riddle,
Whenever I am alone, my mind races,
It paces, it faces, it chases,
The answers, the dreams,
The agony, the screams,
My infinite thoughts in an infinite universe,
The universe? No, it’s a multiverse,
From the smallest atomic particle to galaxies it goes,
My wandering mind never slows,
Everything is in constant motion it shows,
Expanding towards something or someone, no one knows,
The questions of life, about life, the histories,
All these interesting, fascinating mysteries,
Every choice creates a world parallel and new,
Talked by many but understood by few,
I am a tiny speck of star dust in the grand scheme of things,
But my thoughts are infinite when my minds singing begins.
Sitting alone in a rainy day,
Tired of games, too bored to play,
Nothing left to do, no demons to slay,
No one to please, no one to obey,
Panic, disorder, crisis of identity,
Is someone out there, any entity?
In the world of grey, there is no black and white,
Darkness is everywhere, no hope here, no light,
In this scarcity of matter, the emptiness is atomic deep,
What is real or imagination, what to lose, what to keep,
Finding God in this infinite multiverse,
Athiests fool themselves, but why are religions diverse?
In the grand scheme of things, who am I?
Do I matter, or will I just fade and die?
Will someone remember, will they cry?
Thinking of a guy who used to get high,
Endless dreams shattered in endless screams,
But I am still here, dreaming the impossible dreams,
Fighting for a future that may never be,
But the real fun is in the journey you see.
Does she think of you, did she care?
Was it just, is it fair?
Memories of past haunt me in my sleep,
Sometimes I lay in bed awake and weep,
Why cant we flip the switch and forget,
The pain, the hurt and the regret,
I smile and I drink and I dance and I hide,
The wounds, the scars, the broken side,
I am too proud to return, to ever go back,
Have to look ahead, put life on a different track,
I am happy, I have moved on,
I believed in love but I was proved wrong,
Life without love is a happy life,
No headache or drama, freedom, no wife,
Come party with me and enjoy this delight,
The sun is shinning and the day bright,
No reason to be sad,
You are alive, dont be mad,
Just smoke some pipe and be glad,
Survival of the fittest is evolution,
The time has come for a revolution,
Rise, rise, rise and take it all,
The time has come for the empire to fall,
Freedom and love for everyone,
Discriminate against no one,
Rise, rise, rise against the powers,
Crush down and destroy all these towers,
The avalanche of love will sweep the world,
Join hands with me and lets save the world.
“You are stuck with me for life”, he used to say..
But fact is nobody is stuck with anybody for life..
Life is like a river, flowing..it changes..air changes, climate changes, weather changes..everything changes..you change..the cells on your body change, old cells die and new cells are born to take their place, even your skin changes..you are not the same person you were yesterday..time changed you..time passes..endless flow which started from the beginning, if there was a beginning, and will continue till the end, if there is one..
Earth keeps revolving around the sun which keeps revolving around a blackhole which keep moving through time and space.. it doesnt stop turning, not for you, not for me, nor for any sage, any rich or poor, any prophet..everything is in motion..from cluster of galaxies amd their trillions of stars to the electrons inside an atom..if you stop, then the world leaves you behind..the universe leaves you behind..
Its wrong to expect things to be remain the same and same is true for people..people evolve, like everything else evolves..what we can do is just accept the changes and learn to live with them and evolve
Here at the top of world I see
I see buildings tall and cities
Cities and trees and birds whisper
Whispering songs of joy
Joy and love, these beautiful words
Words of peace and heart
Heart which is lonely alone
Alone in this time
Time is evolution
Evolution of heart and mind
Mind that is racing
Racing to face the challenges
Challenges which are in front
Front which I will confront
Confront and fight
Fight and survive
Survive and live
Live and breath
Breath the air
Air of fresh breeze and smoke
Smoke smoke i will not choke
Choke the bad memories
Memories that haunt
Haunt me inside out
Out of heart out of sight
Sight I love
Love is big word
Word or an illusion
Illusion which kills
Kills the desires
Desires which we have
We have and then we lose
Lose the faith
Faith which is essential
Essential to life
Life which I see
Here at the top of world I see
He woke up from a dream..good or bad he didnt know..it was a strange dream for it had roots in reality yet it was so alien to him..
He looked at wall clock while still laying in bed and saw it were 30 past 8..he turned to the other side to see the sun shinning bright..
He got up and sat on his bed..the memory of his dream still in his head..what did it mean, he wondered to himself..was it just a dream or a vision from future..he shook his head and got up from the bed..
He had plans today..he needed to go to university and study and get a hair cut and get water from his uncle’s house and exercise..
Exercise, he had been feeling his body aching at weird places and his back..he needed to get back in shape..sitting in front of computer and playing games and studying in his chair had taken a toll on his body..
He made himself breakfast..
Tomorrow was Eid, a happy festive day..he couldn’t wait to wear his new dress that his dad bought him..he was glad..he packed his back pack and left for the bus..
The sun was shinning hot..hotter then any other day..he went to the bus stop and sat and waited..he looked up at the sun through his sun glasses..it was bright and brilliant..the sky was bluish white with some cloud here and there..
He heard a weird sound that startled him..it was a strange hump sound..loud and deep..he got up looking around for the source but found none..he sat back again..
He pulled out his pipe from his pocket and filled it with tobacco..he began to smoke..and it was good..and relaxing..
The sound came again and he again looked around trying to find the source..he glanced again at the sun and then he saw it..
A small black dot..black or some other dark color..he kept staring at it as the object began to grow..becoming larger and larger by the second..perhaps some new italian space craft or international space station passing by Earth or or..he ran out of rational explanations in his mind as the strange sound once again originated from it..
He got up at once..he had seen it before..it was familiar to him but it shouldn’t have been..the object was the size of a whole football field hovering in sky..covering the sun slowly..the darkness spreading around him..
People started coming out of their homes looking up..fear in their eyes..screams and yells and curses..
Then a voice spoke in a language he knew not..He got scared and excited..
They were here!
It was a cool spring night, he was walking back home from his uncles house..He had a great time there, he ate dinner, met relatives, played with his cousins, chatted, had discussions, showed off his knowledge..It was a great evening..Everything was great..everything was perfect..he was happy..very happy..when he said his good bye to them and started walking towards his home..he gazed towards the sky and saw the moon and admired her beauty..her scared, yet beautiful white face, he kept looking at her and smiled..he was on a high..but not from any drug..he was high from the good feelings..from the good time..from the beauty of the moon..life was great..he took out his phone and sent a beautiful message to his friend..she was so happy to get that message..that made him cry with joy..bringing others joy made him most happy..he also sent another message, an audio message to his long distance love, girl of his life..but she didn’t reply him..he did not mind..he gazed back at the moon and danced a bit..he was singing now..singing about the moon..then a sudden sound of horn, a flash of light and he opened his eyes..
This is not the first time he had that dream..What was so special about that night, he kept thinking..He got up and lit a candle, drank from what water was left in the bottle besides his sleeping place..The blue light from the morning sun was starting to appear in the sky as he looked out of his window..He put on his vest, put bullets in his guns, put small daggers in his boots and picked up the sword..He could not stay here much longer..He had to find a new place..He put on a sun-block and sun-glasses before going out..
He was very cautious, he didn’t want to draw any attention to himself..He needed to go north, where he hid his food..The street was empty, the blue light of the sun was too bright and the heat unbearable..He passed by the old football ground..he finally reached the fountain park..He started digging..He kept looking around making sure that he was not being followed or watched..He hoped that nobody had stole those pills..Finally he found them where he had hid them..He took two boxes and left the rest of them there for another time..He turn around, glancing at his uncles old house..thinking about his dream..He smiled and turned and walked away, looking for a new place to hide………….
