        Cryptic delusions
It felt all so dizzy,
Like a crippled man walking,
A man standing in motion,
In a puddle of confusion.

Muddled up mind, solving a puzzle,
These are the tales from the cryptic,
The ones, outside the crosswords,
The ones, that don't mean much.

It's a state of confusion,
Of creation and rejection,
Thoughts dying an unnatural death,
A virtual reality ends.

Life has left its shadows,
The dark throes of pain,
Of anger, anguish and guilt,
Of being what one cannot be....



 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.

Beautiful work here.   The third stanza is my favorite.  

 Nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? "Thoreau"

Thanks a lot Poet d V, I hope that I am doing well with the limited skills I possess.

Your appreciation has made me buoyant!

 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.

look no further serenity...  

delusioned or disillusioned,
is a matter of words,
lively or staid,
is but a matter of state....

thanks for reading,
sudhir.
