Second chances

The thing with being human is,
you often make mistakes.
There are times when you wish life- like the movies,
came with a scope for a few retakes.

Rewrite maybe just a scene,
or redo the script again.
Maybe tweak a dream ever so little
or just go back and your life re-ordain.

The plan that seemed so perfect once,
may show gaping holes, now that you know better.
That which seemed not so right then,
now feels perfect to the last letter.

Its all very well to say in life,
you do trip and often fall.
and that some falls may scar you for life,
while others hardly hurt at all.

Some turn out more or less okay,
after a few twists and turns.
And then there are those for which,
your heart often burns.

Not all life can be smooth sailing,
and sometimes you can't judge the surf.
and the path which you set off on,
may be uneven turf.

Not every mistake can be set right again,
but would it not be great?
If you had a few, just a set number of chances,
to wipe clean your messy slate.

You could then use those for what counts for you,
with wealth, health or any else.
Maybe even save it up,
a nest egg for future bad spells.

But the thing with being human is,
one often makes mistakes,
Maybe the biggest one yet could be,
the scope for a few retakes!!

Passing through?

Wonder what death feels like?
Are we just passing through, or is this the end?
Do you still feel the very same,
into another dimension it all extend?

What of all the feelings?
That makes one a foe, another a friend?
The likes, dislikes, the laughter,
that makes for life's heady blend.

That love we feel so intensely,
does it end with death?
Or does it stay in this world forever,
and mingle with the loved ones' breath?

What of the anger, the guilt, or sadness,
do they vanish in a puff?
Do they get left behind,
with all your other earthly stuff?

Is it better to know when,
how or where you might die?
So you could set all in order,
and all loose ends firmly tie.

Should it happen in an instant,
with no warning at all?
So living till the very last moment,
has you in its thrall.

These and many such questions,
raise themselves at times.
The answers hiding themselves,
in impossible to reach confines.

Maybe it is for the best,
that the answers all elude,
maybe not knowing makes us,
live the best way that we could!!

Birthday wishes.

Every day is as important,
as the ones coming up or gone.
There is really no reason why,
to celebrate only, the day that you are born.

You could always make any day special,
just pick one randomly.
All you have to make sure is,
the one's you love are free.

You can even do it many times over,
and I hope everyone does too.
Telling you how special you are,
just once a year won't do.

So why do you need birthdays,
for all good things to come to you?
All you need is those you love most with you,
for the good times to accrue.

But a birthday is one of those times,
when all can wish you well,
those who may not be with you everyday,
and at other times are not able.

Sometimes those who love you,
cannot say so all the time.
A birthday  is just right for them,
to express their love openly in rhyme!!
