She wrote to herself, Dear Me
Now that I have the chance to tell you
Their are things that I would like you to see
Understand things so many, know a few
I wish you to spend some time more
with those that brought you in this world
For mostly when you were bored
and down the stairs you hurled
to have a little fun and spend time with pals
their will come a time when to hear their sound
your ears will crave through thick and thin walls
This is my advice profound
You will miss their cheers and chiding
But you will have a family ,career of your own
You will be too busy with your own things
They may not be even in the same town.
You are young you love to eat
But what you feed your body now
Pulse, legumes fish or meat
Are you sure it will age you slow?
Not ingest meal to put you out of ease
For old age is prone to ailments and disease
Never compromise your beauty and youth
Over any passing soul stray
A lad immature, uncouth
For only that special one is meant to stay!
Life now is so much about
what you did and how to achieve
how much you tolled ,so well you fought
But you also need prayers to change God’s decree
Do not ever worry about what they thought
Live bravely for life is steep
Do good ,be fair even if you like it not
What you sow is what you shall reap.
Remember as you grow
Be true to your nature
Friends will come friends will go
What remains is your relation with your Creator!
Their is so much more that my heart
Wishes to with you share
But it indeed is the best part
When you learn to wait and see you go where!
Note: Years later, in moments of joy and disappointment, a life full of experiences and new lessons everyday of this life, I sit down to ponder if the things which concerned me mattered anymore or not? The answer was No, not really. The various issues except for a very few were insignificant in my life years later. And it was a drive in the car when this thought occurred to me and I set out to write it down which happened to be this poem. I must say its quiet a soothing exercise, I would suggest you try it too. You never know what you might realize as truly important and your present struggles and disappointments might just evaporate !
