Life, A Roller Coaster Ride

Have you ever thought about the most ironical thing that you would have come across in your life?? Well, think no more, it is none else but LIFE. We live our present days on analysis, plans and expectations and the only place where none of man’s theories have worked so far would be LIFE.Image
Do I have any of you reading this hate a roller-coaster ride? In that case, I would not hesitate to say that you are not dealing with life the way you should actually be, because, Life is the best roller coaster ride.  And a roller-coaster ride is the best thing that makes us realize how courageous we are.

It all starts with you watching a roller-coaster ride. The sound of the vehicle clubbed with the shrieking of the riders. That brings a smile on your face but your tummy grumble with a ‘No, No No No’. Finally when you decide to take up the queue, your solace would be all those people who are going to try it. Well, they are the same like you, their guts inspires you, it plants the fake confidence which emits the maximum negative energy of ‘Ah, wrong decision buddy’, right when you are about to step in the vehicle. But the internal force makes you take a seat and get strapped. And that’s when you would want to run far away from it but, ‘too late’.

The vehicle moves and you teach your brains, ‘relax, its no big deal’, the vehicle climbs up slowly and makes you enjoy your surroundings and fascinates you with all those beauty and you start feeling its actually alright, its actually fun, but then it takes only a moment to change. The vehicle comes down with such a horrifying speed and you are literally thrown out of your seat. Your stomach has stopped grumbling, instead it makes you feel the butterfly sensation, you feel standing on a stage was a better challenge, your breath halts, you stop thinking, give unreasonable screams, might even do a cowardly act of shutting your eyes so tight which would be an absolute unplanned act of shame. This repeats until the roller-coaster has taken all its titter tatter rides with the uncountable ups and downs.

An addition which is of a recent origin would be, the million dollar commercial idea of taking your picture, and displaying it in public, which is supposed to motivate you to get one for yourself. First the rider had killed you momentarily. You went through those upsetting feelings and like every one else you had said, ‘duh, man, that was nothing’ but the picture show your terrified face, and you would want to ratify your version of ‘no big deal’ because of the apparent proof. But ultimately, did you realize, even the roller-coaster moment passed by like any other moment.

Right after a ride, if you were asked to take it once again, how would you respond? Life, yes, Is not like our roller coaster ride? With ups and downs, happy and tummy churning, breath taking moments? Being sportive is all that matters. If you have the guts to try the roller coaster as many times, you have mastered the art. Have the right outlook on everything, your problem is solved. Have a happy living, life had always wanted you to be happy.

Her life, It always went unnoticed.

She was a beautiful girl
With sparkling eyes
Cheerful and jovial
Spread happiness everywhere

She got married
At the age of twenty
To a young entrepreneur
And the new family, has to be her own family

The in-laws were good
Provided she was good
But whatever she did
Never became any good

Be it Sunday or the monday
She always had to wake up early
The whole family
Was her sole responsibility

The house work
Was her office work too
And it had no offs and no hols
And no contribution to the country GDP

Soon her single soul
Shared two souls
All sufferings and endurance
went unnoticed

Even in pain
She was the support to the man
She held her hand to the old
She was the pillar to lean upon

Additions to her work
House keeping & child rearing
But she found the pleasure
In all her pains

When her children were fed
Her hunger vanished too
and when her husband was happy
She was happy too

Day and night, she took care of them
Yet no one bothered on how she lived
Or gave a warm hug
When she felt alone

If she was sick, no one knew
If she went hungry, no one cared
If she was lonely, she was meant to be
and her desires, was not of worth

Growing old, was again a part of life
She had done her duty well
Her children grew up, all well-off
and when it came to her, no one had time

Yet she did not complain
She was happy for them
Loneliness, now a part of her
The sunk-in eyes, still gave the smile

On her last days, no one was near
and slowly she closed her eyes forever
Her children never hurried near
Yet her soul wished them happiness.
