When I was a child
I asked my mother, what will I be?
Will I be pretty? Will I be rich?
Its been a long day at work today...considering the fact that i dont work beyond 7.30 PM!
This thought has been passing my mind ever since i woke up this morning. As young kids we have all wondered what we would grow up to be. Ive asked my Mom a million questions. From an air hostess to i-wanna-be-steffi to a dancer to an actor to a doctor to a teacher to a software professional. And NOW, that im finally a software professional, i wanna truely traverse the path backwards!
I think this happens to most of us, when we finally reach a stage, it feels so ticky-tacky. They all look just the same.
Life stagnates after a while. How many people actually get out and go that extra mile for passion. I haven't reached that yet and neither have any familiar people i know. We are where we are either because of the dollar factor and the fact that there's already way too much and we just dont care. Its neither madness nor is it sanity, its just pure downright right!
If they say, there is neither right nor wrong, then neither is there "Power" (ok...i did watch Sarkar recently). It feels like an apocalypse, dark and dirty.
How long should one turn his head and pretend not to see thw world. How many more eyes must one have to see the sufferings of the world, How many ears should one have to hear the cries of the people, How many wars should a man fight to finally realize that peace transcends everything, How many deaths will it take to know that people are dying..How many more tsunami's should strike before an effective disaster mechanism is set in place!!
Transcending any/all logic and habitual thinking, i question again...my mother replies
Que Sera Sera, whatever will be, will be
The future's not our's to see
Que Sera Sera, what will be, will be
