Mystery that leads to the best

Life is not always what you think it is, it leaves you quite puzzled at times. Sometimes it seems as if everything has fallen into place and sometimes all you've thought, seems to be a castle of cards, ready to break away with the slightest gush of wind.
Why is it that what we perceive is not what things are all about. There are so many layers to reality that sometimes reality itself seems unreal.
We turn the pages of life and all of a sudden we come across a page that we had long forgotten, and then the present seems so unlike what our past was all about.
We are born free only to grow up and find innumerable boundaries all around us, and we realise that what we called freedom was but a part within the boundaries drawn around us by the world.
Certain realisations catch us by surprise, certain people we know are not the same, friends remain but in name, pangs of survival keeps us tide to the bonds we would otherwise like to break.
Life is a surprise, a surprise that catches us unawares every now and then, and then makes us think..."oh, but this is not what I had in mind!"
But something that I've realised through the course of my life is that whatever happens has something good behind it. That good may not reveal itself at that very instance, but we do figure it out as we sail in the waters of the passing times.

A bird sat on a flower, caught by its beauty,
It got lost in its colour and the amazing serenity.
All of a sudden a gush of wind made her realise,
that the flower was but very fragile,
It blew with the wind and the hasty gush,
The bird felt sad and left in a huff,
why is it that God didn't feel mercy, on such a beautiful creation of his own artistry.
As the bird flew it looked down upon the fields, a little girl held the same flower feebly...
She was thanking God for the beautiful flower she now had , "I'll give it to my mother coz she's very sad,
she toils from the crack of the day to the late eve ,
I'll make her happy with the little flower that has nice red petals and beautiful green leaves,
it would lessen my mothers sadness for sure, and would bring a smile on the face, that smiles no more."
The bird who was a witness to the whole journey, said that indeed life is God's mystery,
he does things that we can never understand,
but when we finally do,
we fall short of words of thanks...
Thank God for giving me all I didn't pray for,
Coz these are the things that I needed indeed.

I feel that life is a big question mark, at times things get really tough and sometimes the road ahead looks quite clear, sometimes seasons leave a happy flavour on our mind and sometimes a day looks as if it'll take forever to complete....Innumerable question marks and our search for their answers ...its a never ending process.
At times the sun feels a little too bright and sometimes the rays just seep in and make you feel happy and full of joy.... the rain drops almost everytime manage to capture that trapped smile of ours and make it spread gleefully all over us and at time our mud soaked clothes get the devil out of us :)
The moon has a tranqulizing effect, but when it reflects someone far away, it brings tears to our eyes...
Flowers bloom for a reason, to bring joy to this world...they perish when we even after looking at them, see through their beauty... when we stop and cherish the wonders of the world, that includes a little flower growing in our garden...the world adorns a different colour and looks surprisingly beautiful.....
Sometimes I feel it's a fact for sure , that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder...otherwise why would a poet find a barren desert beautiful and would end up writng a poem on it ...
Life sure is beautiful , even if at times we feel it lets us down...coz when we set the horizons of our mind free to capture its beauty, life sure turns to the brighter's what we call the brighter side of life :)
