Shit!! Real Life Happening!!

Another feather on your fedora
You’ve created your own aura
This cute little fragile caterpillar
Is now ready to seek her own thriller
Spreading her beautiful butterfly wings
“UIUC”, she shouts, “I’ll show ya how to swing”
Wise words, by few, have been spoken
But some rules, are made to be broken
Create no barriers for self, only memories
Nor get confined, within imaginary boundaries
The now, is what shall make your today
Tomorrow, a new future to build away
Life happens, then shit happens in life, that’s fact
It’s not what life spat or what, how, we shat
You may, ooh-aah, with a cool bidet spray, no issue
Even say ouch, with a Charmin extra soft tissue
Going thru life’s motions, could be daunting, physical or even lyrical
But how well we flush, clean up and step forward, is only critical
The goal, should not be to make others proud
But self-content, self-satisfaction & touching clouds
Seeking advice, talking, sharing, with all is bright
Always do, what you think is wise and right
Experimenting, exploring, is the essence of life
Go show the world, what you got in your stride
“Business on purpose”, is the motto of Gies
Knowledge, can’t alone change the world you Geeks
It’s all ok, to be giddy and nervous
Go find your why, serve your purpose
So ending this, with never ending wishes your way
Congrats and don’t forget to live and play

I always apologize for the length of my text as that’s the best way for me to communicate rather than verbally!! Not a man of many words but still manage to doodle when in mood to write, which is rare!! I am not even sure if what I scribble is poetry or even what form or just words that rhyme!! To me writing is an art, a sign of creativity and a means of expression. I don't really think that anyone can just write without any feelings, without having felt, without having lived, experienced or cherished. Whatever one writes, there is some amount of a persons own feelings and presence or of those around them, indicated in the works. So I am thankful to all the people in my life and those yet to come for having given me life, love, happiness and even pain. At-least I have had the opportunity to feel it , live it and express it, whatever it maybe. Cheers! more…
