A culture we have to follow,
A lifestyle choice we often deny ourselves.
We endure. We suffer. We accept.
Remaining steadfast and loyal
Abiding by the promises we made,
We learn to survive and exist rather than live.
Feelings wane; scars diminish;
Everything seems to be redefined.
Abiding by the rules we forget
There’s a difference between life and existence,
And people forget we exist sometimes.
Changing with time; distant we grow.
Many relationships we’ve lost, and others we are busy losing even now.
Engrossed in our jobs; All the knowledge we acquired;
Looks a waste and the clock ticks ruthlessly faster now.
As we take our final steps, we wish to relive,
The moments that now are only a part of our memories.
Intangible yet a substantial query,
I ask of you today.
Why is the lingering vitality and success confined
Of those who abide and play
By the rules of heart rather than
The portals linked to the mind?
