NEW YEAR DAY

NEW YEAR DAY

 

Year’s end is not the end,

Of highway of thy existence,

Or beginning of year is not a key episode,

It is simply an end of a precise period,

From where strands of good experiences,

Ought to be collated and made compact,

So that thy grip on elusive ‘time’,

May not turn slippery,

And fly away,

Resulting frittering in energy,

By thy slackening mind-set,

Or idle chatter.

 

Last day of the past year,

Or first year of the New Year,

Will dawn with same timekeeping,

Ought not be lost in daydreaming,

Nobody will salvage thy boat,

If encircled by tempest,

Ye’ve to take command of thy oars,

To steer clear of the situation thyself,

No New Year Day or wishful idea will rescue thee,

Mere thyself have to weather the storm,

By thy steely resolve.

 

O Creator of Universe,

With all the enchanting beauties created,

Beings, Vales, Hills, Rivulets, Flowery Meadows, et al,

Create our everyday lively,

And make this earth worth living,

A better place to breathe,

 Free of fear for everyone alike,

Where no brave-heart like  ‘Nirbhaya’ (fearless) turns into ‘Bhaya’ (fear),

And meets her/his man-inflicted untimely end,

Where no one cowers in fright,

Ever and ever – day and night,

 

So that we have not to wait,

The NEW YEAR DAY

For a peaceful leaving.

HARBANS KHAJURIA

  1. Now that year 2012 is on its fag end, there was prediction of the end of this world, but what is created by our Creator will end on His Own sweet will and not with the prediction of whosoever that person may be. God created this world with all its creations for some purpose and that purpose is enduring. With this intention in view, my’ New Year. poem is based. Hope my hope of having everyday like the first year day becomes reality for all of us and He may chip in whenever and wherever we require Him.

    Thanks.

    1. Thanks a lot for appraising the blog on new year day and giving your comments. Inspirational indeed.

      All the write ups are based on the day to day experiences I glean from people I come across and good and bad situation(s) I am put and the assistance of our Lord to extricate from these.

      Really life has given me much including friends – far off they may be; little known they may be; yet they are there to connect and interact.
