Positive From Negative
----------------------

When I woke up this morning,
I saw it was Monday, felt like scorning,
The groggy head, the dizzy feeling,
Like a wet screaming toad jumping,
In search of his own well, squirming,
Like a terrible rat, scrambling,
From the poison, running,
Away from the truth, turning...


Yet as I knew it became better,
As the day went on to this time,
I jump-started into a stutter,
As the day carried forward its rhyme,
A sweet melody that had been evoked,
A tune ensued through my head,
A parody of the heart, a music of the mind,
From the pieces left over from the Saturday dead...


As I came to work, cold and windy it was,
As I reached my desk, holding my breath still,
Anticipating what the day holds for me in store,
Precipitating the wild thoughts of fear,
Obnoxious though it may sound to the ear,
I started my Monday with a rare cheer,
"Oh, its just another Monday!" I said out clear,
And thus did disappear my anxiety and fear...

Thanks a lot for your appreciative comments. I feel honoured.

Regards - Sudhir

 Take each day as it comes,
Consider each day as a flight,
Try hard to succeed and fly,
Surely then you will reach some height.

But if by some chance you don’t,
Remember that tomorrow will always come.
Learn this well and learn this hard
That today’s efforts will pay for tomorrow’s fun.

A Crazy Monster, a.k.a Ski

Anticipating what the day holds for me in store,
Precipitating the wild thoughts of fear,
