Fighting for my breath :)

Sunday, April 05, 2009 , 15 Comments

Sitting on my chair
cherishing my breath
as and when it came
in irregular intervals

Looking at the colors
hearing my son's call
felt his hands on my shoulder
standing tall and smart.

Every breath an herculean task
lifted myself to walk across
feeling weak, but hated to lie
savoring every step that kept me alive..

Life is fun worth living
every minute exotically spun.
live this minute
live for this moment...

thinking of the next
would put you in a rest.
think of tomorrow
your life becomes narrow.

live dangerously
you are going to die just once
what's the fear?
In living it upfront :)

ps: please don't conclude that I'm suffering from terminal illness :)


Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard. Google

you were working on the computer and your son patted your shoulder and asked you to cook for him?

that is what i deduced here..

the good thing about your poetry style is the tone-variations that i can achieve when i read it.. great flow...

you have given a new dimension to my poem :) my son is always hungry, i will be in and out of the kitchen every half an hour... may be I wrote this one when I had that time gap and he stood tall and smart :) i m quite good in multi tasking... my boss always says that too.

Thank you Chriz...

Viji, now I admire you even more. Keep going.
