Walk Do'nt Run


    


Look at the sunrise feel the cold air
    The radiance of the sky n distant eagle’s stare
When did you last hold her soft warm hand?
    Look into her eyes watch love float as magic wand
We chase goals aimless pursuits of wealth n fame
    Forgetting enjoy life’s journey to reach destination main
Slow down the life’s pace, toss away baggage of worry
    Enjoy fruits of labor and dream in warm bed furry
Why be always in a great hurry? Why not stop for fun?
    Look around for happiness, Walk, do not run

  1. Lovely poetry, Rahul!
    Slowing down is the one thing everyone needs to do today :-) to take time to smell the flowers.

    I enjoyed reading your answers to those questions!

    Hope you're having a terrific Sunday!

  6. Before a life changing event, I was always on a run. After that I realized, I can't be in a constant chase. I have to sit and enjoy. May be that was a signal from God. I feel this poem is written exclusively for me. Thank you for this one Sir.

    Good to know so many things about you. And thanks for liking my blog, it is an honor and can't express it in words how happy I am after reading my name there.

    Rahul Ji, I love the poem. Running seems normal these days. When one realizes and starts walking people find him/her crazy! :)

  37. Wonderful poem Sir :-) We need to move with a steady pace but we should not forget to relish these small yet wonderful things and stop a while to realize how good it feels. It is always the small things in life that matter the most. These things give us happiness without a reason and they are the moments to be cherished :-)
