It's not about a Happy Ending







All my life I searched for a happy ending;

All my life I deluded myself into believing in it,

In all situations; good or bad;

All I was worried about being how it fared?



As I grew old, old enough to understand;

Where my life was headed and toward what I was blind.

Golden moments passed me by; in spite of they being rare,

 Obsessing over the ending and for the rest I didn't care.



Now I wonder if I would ever get those moments again;

Even if I promised to enjoy without worrying about the end,

The true wisdom has finally dawned upon me;

Sometimes it’s not about a happy ending, it's only about the story.

  1. Very well written mam. :) But sometimes it's really not easy to live that very moment but yes we do regret for sure when it passes away!

  3. Well, I am very fond of your poetry. I liked this poem so much that I ended up writing a small poem (क्षणिका) borrowing your thought.

  5. Boss... O, Lovely, if ever, a Boss..
    tried, i did, an insufferable heartless critic, to be
    a word misplaced, a punctuation haywire
    was all i managed to see...
    BUT
    the errors, observed, soon faded into obscurity,
    for they could never eclipse the sunshine
    on this world, your beautiful thoughts set free...
