I thank God !!

I thank God !!

I thank God !!

 

This New Year again I thank God!

 

Because….

 

The moment I was born, I had Cried!

Now I know otherwise,   I would have Died !!

 

The burden of Ambition, Competition & Comparison, which I had always carried!

But now I know that I was complete in fact when I had just arrived!!

 

I thank God … because…

I could see, smell, taste & hear right from the beginning !

 

As now I know that, in many on this Earth, capabilities such as these are still missing!!

 

I thank God … because…

 

Till now, everything I did, my happiness was subject to my winning!

 

But I know now that, Happiness is just to love & be Loving  !!

 

I thank God… because…

 

When as a child, I fell down again & again, before I learnt to Walk!

 

As I know now that,

Although parents were holding my hand, But it was I who myself Taught!!

 

I thank God … because…

 

Things beyond my reach, I could never get, it was what I was taught!

 

But now I know that, as a child, I often took a risk & always managed to get things beyond my Cot!!

 

I thank God… because…

 

When I couldn’t keep my parents happy, even when I worked Overtime!

 

As now I know that they were in cloud nine,

For the poems which I could barely Rhyme!!

 

I thank God… because…

 

Although the Sun, Wind & Stars are the same!

 

But now I know that,

Life & Living happily is altogether a different Game!!

 

I thank God … because…

 

My heart is beating continuously without my awareness!

 

And nobody can blame me now,

That I am careless!!

Your words are like modern art. A great Comparison between childhood and adult life full of competition and status consciousness. The awareness expressed is commendable. Keep up the great work Shreyansh!
