A Poem by Manoj J Lekhi (Amrut Vivek)

 

Ask yourself?

Are you in a hurry?

Ask yourself,

Are you in a rush to eat your food?

Are you in a hurry?

Ask yourself,

 

Are you in a rush to reach your office?

Are you in a hurry to reach any place?

Are you in a hurry to brush your teeth?

Are you in a rush to have your bath?

Are you in a hurry?

Ask yourself,

 

Are you in a hurry to finish speaking?

Are you waiting anxiously for the person?

Think about it?

Ask yourself,

 

Are you waiting to finish your exercise?

Are you waiting to finish meditation?

Are you waiting to finish your emails?

Are you sending your SHORT MESSAGE

SERVICE “SMS ” with short forms?

Waiting to answer your facebook/twitter anxiously?

Or Waiting to finish your “To do list”?

IN A HURRY….

 

We miss out the “present”!

We miss out HEARING the song of birds!

We miss the sunrise and sunset!

We miss communicating with people “heart to heart”!

We miss experiencing the “feeling of bliss”!

We miss the “delicacy”of taste buds!

We miss “feeling” the breeze!

 

Just Think about it???

Now I am Asking myself?

Was I in a hurry to finish writing “the above”?
