Life just 10% of what happens and 90% of how you react

Life 10% what happens and 90% your reaction on the happenings

We are free to choose
Our response in any given situation
But we are not free to
Choose the consequences of those actions

Our actions,
Those governed by right principles
Bring positive results
Dishonesty in dealing can
Bring social consequences,
Depending on whether or not
We are found out
And
Also are our natural consequences
Fix result of our actions,
Which Indian Philosophy puts as Karma

That means our choice of response, in a way,
Is our choice of consequences
The important and decisive factor in life
Is not what happens to us
But, the way
We take towards what happens

Not Every Poem Knows How To Say Its Own Name Properly

NOT EVERY POEM KNOWS HOW TO SAY ITS OWN NAME PROPERLY

Not every poem knows how to say its own name properly-
There are poems that have no name
And poems that are named by others who have not written them-
There are poems whose names make them what they are
And poems whose names contradict and belie them-
Many poems have their first lines as their names
And these poems often are as memorable as one line only-
Great poems and good poems can be nameless
Or can have unforgettable names.

Not every poem knows how to say its own name properly -
Poems are poems are poems
And names are names are names
And sometimes they meet and are one
And live happily ever after-
But there are times when perhaps
They never should have met each other at all.

Poems have their names
And names have their poems
But sometimes they love each other
And truly are one.

Deep but not shallow

I would love to take dip in deep
I would frown but not prefer to weep
What is that what looks is not real?
What is use of medicine that can't heal?

Poet should be honest and good
Her/his thoughts should serve as tonic or food
Can it not have excellent edge?
Will it have to wait for advancement of age?

How can you be defined?
Until you don't stand it refined?
Purest thought may emerge and spread
Either you have to be lead or lead

What matters more is real attachment?
Why it should be taken as detachment?
What happens if nothing is received as comment?
Have we to feel bad or lament?

Well it is how you take it
Light is light whether bright or dimly lit
Poet may shed his tears through words
May it serve as sharp as edge of swords

Hardness is not subject for expression
It is self assessment or obsession
Mildness is treasure in our possession
It may come to fore in any of the session

I don't have to be deep to make it shallow
Let the natural things come out and flow
Who are we to make it or allow?
I may guess or try to follow

It may prove as magnetic pull
It may attract with force as full
Why to worry about who pulls and from where?
There is something which emerges from somewhere

I shall go by nature's law
I may be new or simply raw
But is it not the mere feeling?
Who may respond it as simply willing?


It will be sheer folly to follow the suit
It has nothing like see or wait
It has nothing to do with fate
There is nothing like early nor late

Why poles are being kept apart?
Where from you began or start?
Are they not destined to be big part?
We have to gain more but nothing to apart

They have been termed different in temperament
Different conclusions with separate comments
One is extremely cold, unbearable and inhospitable
Another one easy to access and compatible

I would love not to be amused
May have fair ideas but not confused
It is how you take and present?
Wise counsel not to be absent

Soul may not go for it or search
Good philosopher may have to make research
I am for sure it has some holy connection
Is it waiting for any direction or action?
.

What You Do!

if you want to know
who you are as a person,
look at how you spend your time,
what you expend your energy on,
how you react to people around you,
and whether you take the time to listen.

not what you say, what you do!

How You Remind Me

Never made it as a wise man
I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing
Tired of living like a blind man
I'm sick of sight without a sense of feeling
And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am

It's not like you to say sorry
I was waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
for handing you a heart worth breaking
and I've been wrong

I Did Not Lose any Sleep When You Left

Your decision made to follow others,
On a path that seemed safely paved for you...
I respected.
With my regards given,
As my last remarks.

That you appear today to say to me,
There are regrets you wish to express...
Will not recapture,
The many years of suggestions...
I gave to you I believed were best.

What are you expecting,
From me to you for your ears to hear?
An 'okay' with understanding?
As if when you left me you did not make it clear,
To the others you chose to follow...
How crazy you thought me to be!
And my 'know-it-all' personality...
You were glad not to have it near you,
Finally.

Well...
I did not lose any sleep when you left!
And I am sure I will sleep even more peacefully...
When in a few seconds from me you will leave.
I am not here to host another game you wish to play.

Just How You Want It

I know just how you want it
Here goes, just how you need it
I know just how to give it
You say you love me, yes you do
I believe it, 'cause I can see it
When you hold me, a feelin' inside
You're givin' and I'm takin'
I'm there just when you want me
You know I'll never leave you
Happens every time I see you
You got my lovin' in your hands
Don't shake it, don't break it
I love you so much, don't you know
Love thinkin', start dreamin'
I know just how you want it
Here goes, just how you need it
I know just how to give it
I know I know I know (listen)
What you got is what I need
I need your love, can't you see
What you got is up my sleeve
I won't ever make you plead
Here I stand, on the ground
Your love baby, is what I've found
You say you love me, yes you do
I believe it, 'cause I can see it
When you hold me, a feelin' inside
You're givin' and I'm takin'
I know just how you want it
Here goes, just how you need it
I know just how you want it
I know I know I know I know...
I know

How You See The World

Are you missing something?
Looking for something?
Tired of everything
Searching and struggling
Are you worried about it?
Do you wanna talk about it?
Oh You're gonna get it right some time
Theres so much to be scared of
And not much to make sense of
Are you running in a circle?
You can't be too careful
And you can't relate it
'Cos it's complicated
Oh You're gonna get it right some time
You're gonna get it right some time
It's how you see the world
How many times can you see?
You can't believe what you learn
It's how you see the world
Don't you worry yourself
Your not gonna get hurt
Oooohhhhh...
Is there something missing?
There's nobody listening
Are you scared of what you don't know?
Dont wanna end up on your own?
You need conversation
And information
Ohhhhhhhhh...
Gonna get it right sometimes
You just wanna get it right sometimes
It's how you see the world
How many times have you heard?
You can't believe a word
It's how you see the world
Don't you worry yourself
'Cos nobody can learn
Oooooh
Oooooh
Ooooooooh
That's how you see the world
That's how you see the world

Gotta Keep On Movin'

[CD]
We gotta keep on goin'
To where we are not knowing
We gotta keep on goin'
Move it on yeah!
We gotta keep on movin'
If we stay we end up losin'
We gotta keep on goin'
Roll along now!
We gotta keep on rollin'
Just gotta keep on strollin'
Better keep 'em rollin'
Slide along yeah!
We gotta keep on slidin'
Roller coaster we are ridin'
We gotta hold on tight

(Bridge:)
We believe life's a journey
Misguiding signposts leading you all astray
But just remember all of the paths
All lead the same way now
What's important is how you go forth,
Are you racin' or cruising along ?
Are the motorways really the best way ?
Is that where you really belong ?
We gotta keep on goin'
To where we are not knowing
We gotta keep on goin'
Movin' on yeah!
We gotta keep on movin'
If we stay we end up losin'
We gotta keep on goin'
Roll along now!
We gotta keep on rollin'
Just gotta keep on strollin'
Better keep on rollin'
Slide along yeah!
We gotta keep on slidin'
Roller coaster we are ridin'
We gotta hold on tight
& have some fun now!

Don't give in
Start livin'
We can win this war!

Human Beings

Uncle Dan said
'now listen
There's right and there's wrong
and there two kinds of people:

those that can't be trusted to be right
and those that cannot be trusted with being wrong.

Take out the microscope and lets' see
what that person does when they
have you in the wrong.

If they treat you like you ain't' human
anymore
then that is the face of evil.

I worry more about those who
think they's absolutely right tho
than those that know's they's wrong.

Find out who is convinced they's
absolutely right about anything
and run the other way
that is a dangerous woman,
or man.

Now if you find a person who
sees that you is wrong and
don't judge.
That is a human being.
that includes you judging others
too.
Avoid people trying to prove
they is right
sure sign that they is wrong.
Avoid the person constantly
talking about how they have
been wronged
just means they are waiting their
change to get even on somebody
anybody
anybody close will do.

Talk to people who say
I may be right or I may be wrong
but proving right or wrong is not important
only how you treat people and yourself
inside
is important.
Leave the rest.

I Know how You Feel

I find it quite amusing,
That those who do not know others...
Can tell anyone how the one unknown,
Spends their time...
In a doing to them unseen or shown.

I like that expression...'I know how you feel.'

Really?
Then you wouldn't mind if I took a sledgehammer,
And hit you over the head with it a few times?
And if you wait here for a second...
I will call around to see if I could rent a Mac Truck,
To knock you down to roll over at least twice.~

People have no clue what others go through.
Even those living together,
Will say they know nothing of what the others do.
And they may be brothers, fathers, mothers and sisters too.

People do not care about anyone else,
Unless it is to the best of their interest.

And those who do show and express a genuine interest...
They are not suspected to be human.
At least not to have suffered through the experience,
Of being one.

Only those that have laid down like a welcome mat,
To have crap and all kinds of dirt rubbed on their backs...
Can say they qualify to raise a high eyebrow.
Or express an opinion no one likes to hear.
And that's the point of view everyone should respect.
Not the one created by someone pretending to know,
What they don't.

Get An Answer

Man is not made known by his richness
But by simple logic of his humbleness
A poor man can be so rich in his heritage
Rest all the qualities come in later stage

“Will you like a glass of water” asked old man
It was scorching heat for any human
I was on way to a another town
Had chosen path of my own

I could read those worry lines
He was still standing on side line
He was no relative but only a stranger
I was much impressed and wanted to know more

This morning only someone had asked me question
What really makes man rich in sense and in relation?
I was in dilemma to answer but it touched inner core
I had to struggle hard for answer and explore

I thought of this old man and got answer
Such qualities may be had by fewer
They are happiest persons in the world
I would be so much lucky if find such safe fold

Not by what you get but by what you give”
Not by revenge but how you pardon or forgive”
These were all good signs of richness
This gave me an answer and brought shine on the face

It may necessary to have enough of fortune
Luxury and comfort in life with harmony and tune
Yet it is not everything if we compare to what others have
Kind gesture makes them rich and brave

The life has taught us to be little liberal
We may not spend on causes considered to be noble
Yet turn out and behavior makes it all important
Rich or poor may just be stage but one should not be ignorant

How You Remind Me (live)

Crowd cheering in Background)
Right now were gonna perform the Canadian National Anthem
and I swear to god I'm gonna screw the words up
Never made it as a wise man

I'm sick of sight without a sense of feelin
And this is how you remind me
Of what i really am
This is how you remind me

It's not like you to say sorry
We're now waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For givin you a heart worth breaking
And i've been wrong, I've been down
To the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream "Are we havin fun yet?"
Yet, Yet, Yet, dun, dun
Yet, Yet, Yet, dun, dun
Couldnt cut it in the basement
Said I hate you and I swear I still do

How You Ever Gonna Know?

That old wind thats whippin out there
Its whistlin your tune
That wind blew pyramids to egypt
And footprints to the moon
And that old star that youve been wishin on
Is shining mighty bright
Its a fire inside your heart
Thats gonna lead you to the light
How you ever gonna know,
Whats it like to live there?
How you ever gonna know, victory?
How you ever gonna know,
What its like when dreams become reality?
How you ever gonna know,
How it feels to hold it?
How you ever gonna know, what its like to dance?
How you ever gonna know,
If you never take the chance?
You know failure isnt failure
If a lesson from its learned
I guess love would not be love
Without a risk of being burned
Anything in life worth havin
Lord, it has its sacrifice
But the gift that youre receiving
Is worth more than the price
How you ever gonna know,
Whats it like to live there?
How you ever gonna know,
What you never know?
How you ever gonna know,
If youre down here doin
What the good lord puts you here to do?
How you ever gonna know,
If you could have done it?
How you ever gonna know, how it feels to fly?
How you ever gonna know,
If you never dare to try?
Listen not to the critics,
Who put their own dreams on the shelf
If you wanna get the truth to admit it,
Youve gotta find out for yourself
How you ever gonna know,
What its like to be there?
How you ever gonna know,
If youre the best?
How you ever gonna know,
What you believe in if you dont put it to the test?
How you ever gonna know,
How it feels to hold it?
How you ever gonna know,
Whatll never change it?
How you ever gonna know,
If you never chase the dream?
How you ever gonna know,
Your potential?
How you ever gonna know, how you ever gonna know,
Whats it like when dreams become reality?
How you ever gonna know,
How it feels to hold her?
How you ever gonna know,
What its like to dance?
How you ever gonna know,
If you never take the chance?

The style of writing The style of writing The style of writing The style of writing The style of writing

Write long but not to be lengthy.
Write short but not to be ambiguous
How you write highlights what you write.
Write and keep in mind for whom.
