And…

a poem by Khyati Danani

You will see the first daisy bloom in the spring of your soul,
and as you hold your head high and blink back tears
(being grateful for jussssssst living long enough to experience THIS moment)
you shall certainly see what I see
it is a beautiful world after all!!!
you learn that there is life, love, friendship and beauty
and there is hate, death, enemity and ugliness…
and you get what you choose…
and that you do make your own destiny…
as impossible as that sounds!
and that you are who you believe you really are…
and in most cases seeing is believing…
and in some cases, trusting is living!!!
That love conquers all… just as it destroys all…
and the only way to live life, is to give it YOUR best…
and that each moment in your life you must do exactly as you please…
and love yourself for it…
and most importantly… love yourself…
and drink a little more
and enjoy one more bar of chocolate!!!
and love MAY mean letting go…
and love COULD mean holding on…
and that you don’t have to be right always…
that you do not necessarily have all the answers…
and somethings are best left unsaid…
and ignorance is generally bliss
That music heals the soul
As does a long lingering bath…
and writing does help to get things off your mind…
that action, not procrastination
is the best solution for inaction…
that the best way to beat the blues is to paint the town red!
that if nothing else works,
close the door and cry your eyes red
before you laugh your heart out
and then bow your head in prayer…
just to thank god for being alive today…
you learn…
that everything turns out right in the end
and if it doesn’t turn out right
then it is not the end…
and if it still isn’t right…
it probably wasn’t meant to be…
that love truly is blessed
and if it doesn’t make you happy
and if it hurts…
it may not be love
And you learn to remember about opportunities
that they are generally disguised as hard work
and demand diligence, dedication, determination
and when you truly believe you CAN… you DO…
life’s battles do not always go to the stronger or bigger man
that sooner or later, the man who wins, is the man who thinks he can!!!
and that when two roads diverge in the woods,
and you take the one less travelled,
that will make all the difference…
and one thing is certainly true…
We have nothing to fear but fear itself!
That life may seem to be really horrid sometimes…
but a walk by the shore and a tub of ice cream will always help…
That we may never know what life and love is all about…
but the beauty and triumph of the spirit is in still trying…
trying to find (first the questions) and then the answers…
even though there is a good chance that there may not be an answer…
it requires courage to try, learn, live, love, laugh…
to EXPERIENCE life…
you also learn that it is the imperfections that make people more lovable…
that nothing is more beautiful than a chipped tooth… and a grin too wide…
That when you feel really low…
sometimes you just need to be alone…
and sometimes you just need people…
the key is to know what it is when!!!
know that you must never linger too long over a person or situation…
unless it seems to be the right thing to do
(which it will always seem to)
and then the only thing to do, is to follow your heart and heed your mind
and finally hope for the best!!
and yes the final word is hope…
the world lives on hope…
yes… the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams…
