When you're a plebeian you want success, and when you're successful you want to be a plebeian again.

Success And Loss

SUCCESS AND LOSS

What’s success without loss?
You can’t win every toss!
It’s something that makes you strive-
It’s what makes you actually feel alive!
How come will you adore the bliss?
When you can’t differentiate with loss and malice?
True happiness comes, in dreams you believe!
Only then even after defeat, can you achieve!
For the plant which knows how to bend,
After the storm, opportunities extend!
Its then when you realize the talent,
To a negligent life, it’s not equivalent!
You work hard, you have a goal,
The determination plays a vital role.
Positivity flows, you finally gather moss.
Could it be possible, if there was no loss?

Success and

Success and failure
does not matter
you are with me
that is enough.

You can see
the leaf the flower
and feel proud
as before.

Stone is a stone
does not matter
gold or copper.

You'll Never See My Face Again

Ev'ry single word has been spoken.
It's much to late to change your ways.
Far too many vows have been broken.
You can't expect a soul to stay.
You think that you can stand and lie.
It makes me laugh . You got no friends.
It took a thousand years to find out why.
You'll never see my face again .

You know that you've been left before this night.
It's come my turn to make it over.
I wish that ev'ry thing was coloured white.
I wish that I could be a rover.
You think that you can stand and lie.
It makes me laugh.You got no friends.
It took a thousand years to find out why.
You'll never see my face again .

I Want The Past To Be Again

I want the past to be again-
I don’t want so many of them to be dead-
I don’t want to be old-
I want to see us as we were-
I want the chance to live it again-
I want to live it better than I did-
I want the past to be again-
I want another chance-
I want us all alive again-
I want to love them again-
And be better to them than I was then-
I don’t want it to be gone-
I don’t want so many to be dead-
I want it to be again-
I want a second chance-
I don’t want it to be gone-
I don’t want it to be gone-
God it’s over-
I’ll be dead soon too-
I don’t want it this way
I don’t want all of us to be gone.

And who cares
And who should care
What I want?

Success And Image And The Face Of It

Those who say,
Looks aren't everything!
Aren't the ones who are judged,
Based solely upon them.

And besides...
This can be deducted,
From what many prize.
Thick lips, nappy hair and brown eyes...
Are not considered standards,
By those who analyze.
Not for a beauty,
Considered to be immortalized.

No matter who is competent...
In a package that is presented!
If it doesn't suit the taste,
For those who select an image to digest.
As an appearance,
That suggests success...
And not a waste to regret.
It will be the 'image' one picks,
Over a competence that 'may' exist.

'But hasn't it been image and not substance,
That has increased in an invited decadence? '

Well...
Yes.

'But who in reality today believes? '

Remember this...
Image speaks volumes.
And easier to hype.
On the other hand...
Reality is something placed,
On an equality wish list...
Not too soon to happen,
For the sake of changing...
Success and image and the face of it!

If You Are Not Feeling It

Do you have it in yourself to achieve?

Are you bothered by listening and discipline?
Does either one of them or both...
Make you cringe?
Especially when someone experienced,
Tells you over and over again...
Those are the two key elements to success.

And you regard criticisms, advice and suggestions...
As being offensive to your sensitivities?
Plus you rather socialize than to sacrifice your time,
To do anything that prioritizes...
What you claim to have love and interest to do.
And there is no loyalty or devotion applied?
Where is your passion?

Do 'I' think you have it in yourself to achieve?
That's the question you did ask me,
Right?
Well...
You have none of that of which I just mentioned.

Was that a trick question?
Or did you just want to see me laugh?
And why would you ask me,
A question like that in the first place?

If you are not feeling it...
What makes you believe that I can feel 'that',
Coming from you?
Stop seeking attention.
Stop seeking acceptance.
Start...
Believing in yourself and your abilities,
And you will never have to ask me...
Or anyone else,
A question like that again.
Now get out of my face.
You're wasting 'my' time.

When will you come?

"When will you come'?
Who will be there to welcome?
No one knows about the moments second
We are small fishes in the ponds.

We will always leave the work for tomorrow
That may end your carrier and won't allow
Bright sun may never appear in life again
All attempts for success may go in drain

Who knows what is waiting for you on the way?
May be in the form of accident or something else in the day?
You won't be able to make for evening meals
It is nature's cruel joke and deal

Enjoy with whatever you have today
Life may never grant you time or way
Finish it when you have sufficient time
You may not be able to go near sometimes

"Do right now if that is designed for tomorrow"
The river may dry up on the way with its flow
Who knows what is awaited in time to come?
Day may prove lucky or fatal for someone

I do believe in uncertainty factor
But we must emerge always as victor
Not that we are so powerful or immortal
But certainly we can win over and nicely settle

We know nothing about future
Tomorrow may not bring anything for sure
Diseases must be prevented or cured
Then only limited life can be assured

There is no fun in loosing the hope
As life is like walking on the tight rope
You must have the balance on high slope
Then nothing else can force you to stop

Oh, when I was in love with you

Oh, when I was in love with you,
Then I was clean and brave,
And miles around the wonder grew
How well did I behave.

And now the fancy passes by,
And nothing will remain,
And miles around they'll say that I
Am quite myself again.

Three Principles for Success

In the old days
when I was a nobody
I needed a mentor
in order to groom me into success
into self-actualisation and to bring
all my dreams into reality
and so I found a mentor
and I learned of him the 3 principles
to success and complete achievement
And yes, since you ask,
I shall pass on to you the 3 principles
that my mentor had learned from someone before:

PRINCIPLE 1
Know what you want
PRINCIPLE 2
Never tell them all that you know

I'm glad that you understand

I'm glad that you understand my situation
'Cause that idea was an aberration
It gives me no mental satisfaction.
To do this I don't feel any elation.

That person needs a little adulation
And I definitely accept my resignation,
When writing words without any sensation
Means there is no implication.

I can ignore that and try to be successful,
But I cannot be forever disrespectful,
'Cause all my life I tried to live so careful,
I want my acts to be completely misdoubtful.

I understand that your life is truthful
And your feelings are very trustful,
Your lines are not at all unskillful,
Your feelings make me completely blissful.

When You See My Pup Do Poopie

Your dog bit my dachshund,
When my pup took a poop at Ben's.
I was looking into the backyard,
From a window in Ben's kitchen.

You have a rottweiler...
And my daschsund for him,
Is no competition.
That 'thing' needs to be leashed.
Muzzled and restrained!
It's obvious there's no training going on...
And I have refrained myself,
From inflicting it with my brand of pain.

Your dog bit my dachshund,
When my pup took a poop at Ben's.
If this should happen again to my pup,
I'll dropp kick that 'thing'...
And we will end as friends!
When you see my pup do poop again,
Don't smile as if you're proud
As if that is allowed...
Bring that damn thing in!

Sonnet: God Has His Plans for You

If God had brought you to His land of choice,
He executes His plans for your progress;
If you can’t hear His caring, soothing voice,
You train your heart to know His love excess!

If God had made you climb a mountain steep,
He will ensure you reach its lofty peak;
If half-way up, don’t see the ravines deep,
Or be worried by slips when you are weak!

If God delayed your success and limelight,
He knows the ideal time to grant you bliss;
If God’s impressed by your behavior right,
You’ll reach your aims in life and never miss!

Have trust in God who made you specially;
He knows His righteous ones especially!

Nobody Knows You When Youre Down & Out

Well, once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spending my money, no, I didnt care
Takin my friend john out for a mighty good time
Buyin high-priced liquor, champagne and wine.
Then I began to fall so low,
Didnt have a friend, nor no place to go.
If I get my hands on a dollar again
Im goin to hold on to it until the eagle grins.
Soon as I get back up on my feet again
Everybody wants to be my long-lost friend.
Its might strange, without a doubt
Nobody wants you when youre down and out.
Lord, soon as I get up on my feet again
Everybody wants to be my long-lost friend
Its mighty strange, without a doubt
Nobody wants you when youre down and out.
Thats what I mean when youre down and out.

Once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spending my money, I didnt care
Takin my friends out for a mighty good time
Drinkin high priced liquor, champagne and wine
Then I began to fall so low
Couldnt buy me no friends, have no place to go
If I ever get my hands on a dollar again
Im gonna hold on to it, till the eagle grins
I said nobody knows you when youre down and out
In your pocket, you aint got one penny
And your friends, you didnt have any
Just as soon as you get up on your feet again
Everybody wants to be your long-lost friend
Oh lord without a doubt
Nobody wants you, nobody needs you nobody wants you
When youre down and out
I say nobody wants you
Nobody needs you
Nobody wants you when youre down and out

Do you remember failures?

Are you asking me? Yes, I remember my failures
Lots and lots of failures in my life,
I look back again and remember these failures
And my God, how deeply was I hurt,
I cried on some of them,
When friends left when love was lost
When relatives did not give support
When I was all alone

When I finally rise again
And recovered from the past, when I learned
And met success again

When I have become stronger
Rising from every fall, recovering from every failure

I always remember them with fondness
The hurts diminishing, the blames now faint

As the new sound of success reverberates
Claiming new friendships and new approaches

And the comfort that life is like that
Success and failure? A seesaw that we really have to play.

Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out

Well once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spending my money, I didn't care
Takin' my friends out for a mighty good time
Buyin' boot leg liquor, champagne and wine
Then I began to fall so low
Couldn't find me no friends
Had no place to go
If I ever get my hands on a dollar again
I'm gonna hold on to it, till the eagle grins
I said nobody knows you
When you're down and out
In your pocket, you ain't got one penny
And your friends, you didn't have any
Just as soon as you get up on your feet again
Here they all come, they say that they're your long-lost friend
Oh lord without a doubt
Nobody wants you
Nobody needs you
Nobody wants you
When you're down and out
I say
Nobody wants you
Nobody needs you
Nobody wants you when you're down and out

What You Are

When you wanted me i came to you
when you wanted someone else i withdrew
when you asked for a light i set myself on fire
and if i go
far away
i know you'll find another slave
cause now i'm free
from what you want
now i'm free
from what you need
now i'm free
from what you are
when you wanted blood i cut my veins
and when you wanted love i bled myself again
now that i've had my fill you
i'd give you up forever
and here i go
far away
i know you
you'll find another slave
cause now i'm free
from what you are
now i'm free from what you need
now i'm free
from what you are
then a vision came to me
when you came along
i gave you everything but then you wanted more
cause now i'm free
from what you want
now i'm free
from what you need
now i'm free
from what you are
hey
now i'm free
from what you want
now i'm free
from what you need
now im free

When I Think Of You

Magic... moments
Therere the things I will remember
Wheres the time we spent together... laughing
Then you walk into my dream... dear
And I see your face
Young and so free, smiling at me
So long since ive... had you near
Now youve come back again
Where the love never ends
And youre right here
When I think of you
When i... need you, I just close my eyes
And youre... here
Right beside me when Im lost in... shadows
Of the memories of you... oh my dear
And I see your face
Young and so free, smiling at me
In your eyes I walk without fear
Were together again
Where the love never ends
cause youre right here
When I think of you
Hold on... just for a while
Hold on... hold on
I try to forget the night that you left
Its all so unreal, with you gone
I can dream once again...
Where the love never ends
cause youre right here
When I think of you
When I think of you
When I think of you

After You Left

When some one departs from life very early
We remain quiet and peaceful internally
Think about old memory and his good side
And cry when unable to control it and hide

Such is the situation when husband is no more
The life becomes hell therefore
No one is there to take care and look after
Many worries about children as how to cater

If something is left behind as fortune
Then it is good and better than any none
But if left behind high and dry
Big question arises as to how to tackle and try?

You are and were together
He was your success and feather
You were trustful and till remained
With absolute integrity and maintained

No one remains here a day longer
When you have to leave despite being stronger
That is divine cycle and must be respected
More of pain and grief is sometimes not well reacted

Face the situation as it approaches in
It may stay for some period but won't remain
For the time longer than required
So it got to be accepted and admired
