Looking ahead..

From the time I was born, till date, I have been hearing:

What is it you are passionate about?
What do you love to do day-in and out?
What will make you sit up and look?
What wil make life seem like a fast paced book?
What do you 'really' want to do?
In life, where do you want to go?

Now, when I look ahead I wonder:

What lies ahead?
Will i find my passion?
What will I achieve?
What will remain undone?
Will I travel the road less travelled?

All I have right now, is an uncertain mind.. uncertain future.. uncertain life..

I have hope in what Bernard Shaw says: Looking ahead is a "Romantic possibility of an unknown future"..

we're just 2 lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
running over the same old ground, what have we found, the same old fears !!
Wish you were here..

Read my latest post (Maybe, it will help. An experiment...im gonna try it soon !)

Grey Shades said...

Yeah! Oh Yeah! This is so what I was thinking too!

Everyman said...

I would have found myself in the same position, but then i dont. I am too caught up with trying to find out where i am RIGHT NOW to bother about where I am headed :-D

And as for what GBS said, bring on the romance anytime :-P

Rahne De Aasman...Zamin Ki Talash Kar,
Sab Kuch Yahin Hai...Na Kahin Aur Talash Kar,
Har Aarzoo Puri Ho To Zeene Ka Kya Maza,
Zeene Ke Liye Bas Ek Wazah Ki Talash Kar...

I think that somehow nicely 'transliterates' ur idea :-))

But say what, I also find myself somewhat in the same pot, and am 'terribly' ambivalent all these times...at the crossroads.

But yeah as they say: Keep The Faith. Maybe Someday...

this is called life :)

Riddhi said...

Atleast you are in a position to make a choice and not let life/circumstances dictate the terms.. Maybe, that's enough for now..

@ashish - i think you have a point there.. do u think we are always yearning for something we dont have?

@riddhi - you are right, i have the choice, and i think thats whats making me so gutsy & frustrated about it.. No fair huh?
