Compromise

I never really understood this word, which lead me to contemplate
Is compromise really so bad, isn’t it just a choice we make?
Do we settle for less than what we want or do we decide our own fate?
What is it about compromise that sometimes gets people irate?

I don’t subscribe to the philosophy of the glass half full or empty
But rather the realist who adds a peg, says cheers and drinks to life
If there is something you truly want or believe in then one would never compromise

So how significant is our want or belief, we need to analyze
Sometimes a compromise isn’t really a compromise ..

Just Because
 
Just because I don't smile, doesn't mean I'm not happy
Just because I don't laugh, doesn't mean I don't find something funny
Just because I don't say I care about you, doesn't mean I don't love you
Just because I don't cry, doesn't mean that i'm not hurt
Just because... Just because... Just because
So if I smile don't assume I'm happy
For I never let my feelings show
If you want to truly know what's inside me
Just ask me if things are so...

The Voyage – Part 1

Embarked upon a voyage last week,

Travelled with a sailor that day..

I’ve heard the saying, one at every port,

Sure didn’t feel that way..


Arrived at our destination,

Early in the morn..

Moments of the night before,

Still seemed to linger on..


My father had questioned me,

The sailor had done that too..

‘Twas scared of what the two might say,

Based on what they think they knew..


But pleasantries with quickly over,

Within a second or a flash of one..

All that stress over nothing,

The introduction was finally done..


Bidding farewell, we parted ways,

And to our homes we went..

Within minutes of our arrival

Messages were sent …..


Few things then were very apparent,

(We were) Either bored or missed each other like hell..

So we met that evening as we now planned

And everything went more than just well..


Best sea food dinner on beach ,

Clubbing after, into the night..

As we on back to his place,

Our arms 'round each other were tight..

Questions , questions on my mind .. Answers that I can’t define..

Hate the way I’m feelin ..

Hate this way of dealin …

Questions , questions on my mind ..

Answers that I can’t define ..

Can’t do things the right way..

Guess I never could…

Complications the only constant …

My life ever understood..

Hate the way I’m feelin ..

Hate this way of dealin ..

Questions , questions on my mind ..

Answers that I can’t define ..

I try so hard at times …

I try too much I think …

And then I go on the other extreme..

Emotions always outta sync ..

Hate the way I’m feelin …

Hate this way of dealin …

Questions , questions on my mind ..

Answers that I can’t define ..

Is this how its supposed to feel ?...

How do I know if this is real ?...

Questions , questions on my mind ..

Answers that I can’t define …

Our Eyes They Meet

Went to a fete today,
There all on my own ..
Met a couple of friends,
Could see we all have grown ..

Husbands, wives, sons and daughters,
Everyone with someone..
And as I gazed at a passer by,
God I missed you hon..

Staring into space I turned my head,
And suddenly across the field..
Like two strangers in a love story,
Our eyes they suddenly meet ...

Round and Round

Round and round my heads a spinning,
Thoughts and thoughts they flow..
Don’t have the answers to the questions I’m asking,
Riddles and riddles are all I know..

Sleeping late at night and up early next morning,
Exhaustion lullaby puts my brain to rest
Can’t really stop this anxious feeling
How did this turn into such a mess ?

Round and round my heads a spin ,
Thoughts and thoughts they flow
Don’t have the answers to the questions I’m asking
Riddles and riddles are all I know

Enjoying the moments


Life’s been different for quite a while
Fleeting moments the constant these days
A different outlook, a different perspective
Living life in a whole new way

In and out is what I do now
News faces and places I see
In this tizzy of elated feelings
These moments have set me free

Don’t know how, the world she works
Or why things happen this way
All I know is this wonderful feeling
And I’ll enjoy it while it stays
