Sky is not that high for those, “who dare to Fly”!

I took a ride, which I never intended,

I reached a beautiful place as if it was painted;

I laughed at myself, when everyone else thought I had gone mad,

Who cares If I was mad; my reason was simple, I did not want to have regrets and to be sad.

Everyone laughed at me,

When they saw, I fell while trying to reach where I Intended;

Few days later, life took its turn and I saw them cry,

As if their dreams and hopes were faded.

To wipe out their tears I extended my hands,

Without even asking, “they laughed at me in those days” why;

To see them remain unanswered,

I said- “when you people chose to run, I decided to fly”.

To hurt those people’s sentiment was not my intention,

I just wanted to pass on a simple lesson;

Do not make a person- “who is dreaming big” feel alone,

One day he will make you realize “his bad days are now gone”.

So if you can then dream, dare and run;

Keep the faith in god and believe that, you are not alone;

Time may beat you today; people may reject you today,

But one day people will realize-“In millions, He was the One”….

  1. Beautiful and meaningful poem. My favorite line: “I said- “when you people chose to run, I decided to fly”. I think this is the entry I like the most so far, dear Arindam!
    It speaks so strongly to me. I also feel like I am on a ride, that was never intended leading me to this beautiful place! And I’ll never stop dreaming and more importantly to take steps to make my dreams come true. I wish you the best and I mean it, Arindam! Cassie

  2. A poem right from the heart. Really touching, And I believe as you do. We should not laugh at those who try to make the big leap, just think about the story about Jonathan Livingston Seagull. (And by the way sorry for having been absent lately, I just haven’t had time to comment the last couple of weeks).

    • A story my parents used to read to me when I was a kid. I always liked it. And whenever I saw a seagull, I would say ‘Look there is the seagull Jonathan!’The poem really suits to that fantastic book!

    • Great to see you back Otto. :) I am glad you liked this. I am not sure if it was a poem, but it was a thought, which I wanted to share. And yes, I know you are busy with professional stuffs. So It was never an issue. I know your good wishes are always with me.

      • Cassie, I have never heard this story before. But I am going to read it soon. After all as you said, both the book & my poem share the same kind of thoughts. :) Thank you.

    • I am really sorry while saying this Giovannoni, I could not get what you meant to say through your comment. I would be more than happy if you would have written this in English.

    • Hi Giovannoni. I just checked and came to know that, you have written your comment in Italian. And as per the Language translator I came to know that- you wanted to say, “A very delicate poetry, which incorporates traces of “the past”
      panacea for the heart!
      Very nice, my compliments!”
      Am I right? :)
      If so, then big thank you. I do appreciate your kind words. It’s really nice to see you in my blog.

      • That’s right! I think when you have to express feelings, the very deep one, a person may do it by using his/her mother language! I’m cosmopolitan, I do use seven languages… and I know on google translator you always may get some help! :-)
        Italian as french, is a very expressive language… I’m sure you did appreciate even if this meant to look for answers :-)
        I wish you a lovely day, with serenity صفاء
        :-)claudine

        • It’s wonderful that, you use seven languages. Yes, I took help from google translator. But I was not sure in which language it was written. Then I have to search in wiki, the common languages of Switzerland. And finally I came to know that, it was Italian. :) So it was a long process for me.
          And yes I do appreciate it. Thanks to you, I came to know more about Swish people.
          Stay Blessed Claudine.

  3. I appreciate your optimism and positive determination. What’s the point in thinking small? Big doesn’t have to mean stepping on others or hurting people along the way. Could we have been created to be small? Look at the complexity and intricacy of each one of us. What a marvelous piece of work. So let’s get to work! :D

    • Thanks a lot Amy Aunty. See I am already at work, although my laptop’s clock is showing it’s 4.04AM. :) Yes you said it for me that, ” Big doesn’t have to mean stepping on others or hurting people along the way”. I do believe, big means creating our own path and leaving our own footprints. But I get disappointed when people say, now a days the world & its systems work in a different way.

  4. “So if you can then dream, dare and run;

    Keep the faith in god and believe that, you are not alone;

    Time may beat you today; people may reject you today,

    But one day people will realize-“In millions, He was the One”….

    So very true words…..
    And yes even I belive that the dreams do come true,we just need the burning desire……
    Awesome poem…

  5. Thak you very much for your beautiful poem, which I never read even in my school days. I liked this line in your poem “Keep the faith in God and believe that, you are not alone”. It is definitely true in our life.

  6. You always make my day with your kind words. :)
    And I think you have not read this poem in your school days, was because I was not a writer by then. :) Just kidding.

  7. You can’t fly… if you don’t try. Those on the ground need inspiration from above. I love the inspiration in this post. I will never stop dreaming and reaching for the sky. :-) Thanks for this.

  8. my favorite line comes when you said:
    “Keep the faith in god and believe that, you are not alone”
    it reminds me of the book Never Alone by Joseph Girzone…ah, it is good to read words like yours and Mr. Girzone because it reminds us that although we may have tons of friends and loved ones, truly our best friend is God who resides within us…always.
    Thanks for another thought provoking read, Arindam.
    ~peace, light and love to you :)

    • Sunshine you said is perfectly that, God is our best friend. At the end of the day, we all want him to bless us, support us. :) Thanks a lot Sunshine, for all the good wishes you pass on to me. It means a lot.

  9. Very well written, Arindam.
    And I can tell you have a really good blog theme. :D
    Question: how do you put additional templates at the front page? I only have one. I can’t seem to figure having multiple categories.

    • Thanks a lot Rommel.
      Yes, that thing with my blog took quite a time to figure out. :) For that you have create a new category with any name, and set it as your default category in theme option. Then go to the categories page in your dashboard and select all the categories you want to show in your home page as the sub category to the category which you have selected as your default category in theme option.
      I hope it will work and if not then do let me know buddy. :)

  10. What a wonderful piece Arindam! Your words have a lovely flow and somehow you manage to take us up into the clouds with you from where we enjoy a truly grand view. Freedom and the freedom to dream – never leave home without it!

  11. Thanks a lot Patti. I am glad that, my words could take you in such a beautiful trip. :) Yes, I will surely try to carry the freedom t dream with me in this journey.

  12. A very very poignant and touching poem. :)
    “Time may beat you today; people may reject you today,
    But one day people will realize-“In millions, He was the One”….
    Don’t have words to describe your ingenuity :)
    Congratulations! :)
