The dark side of light.

That's the best title I could think of, for what I am going to say.
Each one of us come into this world with no goals, targets or ambitions. These are given to us in the next phase of life, when we have learnt the art of saying "yes", "no" or even "maybe". But its usually a "yes", for we are trained that way. This is the part of life where we are taught about the good and the bad. And we start understanding what's beautiful and what's not. What is right and what is wrong. Life goes on and we head out to school, where the teachers enlighten us with a lot of facts. Now again, we are in the process of learning what's good and what's bad.
Now the question is, why this preface?

As kids, youngsters, we all dreamt of a life that we wanted. How many of us are really living the dreams? Reality check - I wanted to be an artist. Wanted to major in fine arts. What am I today? What is my background? Marketing it is. So, what happened to my dreams? What happened to my passion? Left it all behind. For what joy? To choose marketing? To earn lots of money? NO! I had to leave it behind because I was forced to. Who forced me? Family? Friends? No, it was the circumstances. This is not just my story, everybody on this planet can relate to this story in their own way. I strongly believe that instead of educating us with all the unwanted stuff, try teaching life to the younger generation. For they know that their tomorrow is nothing less than a challenge. We made promises to ourselves and to our family and friends. We promised to do what we loved and make the best of it, we promised them that we will be there for them no matter what, and we promised to keep in touch... None of those promises are kept. Now I know that there are two kind of people. Good and bad? No! People who are living (a sad life) to die and people who are dying to live. I want to be the latter. I want to fulfil the promises I made to myself, my family and my friends. In my case, the process has begun. When are you going to start? When are you going to move away from the dark side of light?

The unforgiven

"Life is much happier and peaceful without you" said them both and his heart sunk deep into the abyss.

He knew that there was no value for a man's tears, and so he walked away silently. Promised himself that he would not show his face to them ever again.

"What wrong have I done you?"
He asked himself.

He knew the answers, but couldn't quiet agree with it himself. For he believed that he had one life to live and experiment. He failed, and many times. But he was not one of those who'd give up so easily. May be that was one of the reasons they hated him. But he knew they had more reasons to add to it. He knew he was not perfect and consoled himself saying "nobody is perfect".

Deep within, he craved for solitude and was never successful.

"I have to live life with or without people" he told himself as he walked past the door.

He knew that he was just left with one adamant soul to live with. The sun was setting in the far west as it went on to be dark. He could relate the same with his heart, sinking deep into the darkness of the abyss. Though the sun was going to shine another world, his heart sank into a place that was going to be forever dark.

ಹನಿ ಹನಿ!

ನನಸಾಗದ ಕನಸುಗಳ ಬಡಿದೆಬ್ಬಿಸಿ
ಸೆಣಸಾಡಿ ನನಸಾಗಿಸುವುದೇ ನಿಜ ಜೀವನ!

ನಾ ಬಯಸಿದ್ದು ಪ್ರೀತಿ..
ಆಕೆ ನೀಡಿದ್ದು ಪ್ರೀತಿಯೇ;
ಆದರೆ ನನಗಲ್ಲ!

ದಿನವೆಲ್ಲಾ ಅವಳ ನೆನಪುಗಳೇ ಕಾಡಿತ್ತು..
ನಾ ತಂದ ಹೂ ಆಗಲೇ ಬಾಡಿತ್ತು..

ನಾ ನಿನ್ನ ಪ್ರೀತಿಸಿದ್ದು ಸುಳ್ಳಲ್ಲ ...
ನೀ ನನ್ನ ಪ್ರೀತಿಸಿದ್ದು ನಿಜವಲ್ಲ...

ನಿನ್ನ ಮರೆತದ್ದು ನಿಜವೇ ...
ಆದರೆ ನಿನ್ನ ನೆನಪುಗಳನ್ನಲ್ಲ...

ಎರಡು ದೇಹಗಳು
ಮಣ್ಣಾದ ಮೇಲೂ,
ಎರಡೂ ಹೃದಯಗಳಿಂದ
ಕೇಳಿಬರುವ ಮಿಡಿತ.

ನನ್ನ ಪ್ರೀತಿಯ ಗೆಳತಿ

ಚಿಕ್ಕಿಯೊಂದು ಜಾರಿ ಬಂದು
ಇವಳ ಮಡಿಲ ಸೇರಿತಂತೆ
ಮಡಿಲ ಸೇರಿ ಮಮತೆ ನೋಡಿ
ಮಡಿಲಿನಲ್ಲೆ ಉಳಿಯಿತಂತೆ
ಚಂದ್ರ ಒಮ್ಮೆ ಇವಳ ನೋಡಿ
ನಾಚಿ ನಾಚಿಕೊಂಡನಂತೆ
ಇವಳ ನಗುವ ಮತ್ತೆ ನೋಡಿ
ಎಲ್ಲ ನಗುವ ಬಾಚಿಕೊಂಡನಂತೆ..
ಹಕ್ಕಿಯೊಂದು ಹಾಡುತಿತ್ತು
ತನ್ನ ರಾಗದಲ್ಲಿ ತಾನು
ಹಕ್ಕಿ ರಾಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಇದ್ದ
ಚೆಲುವ ಚಿತ್ತಾರವಲ್ಲವೆ ನೀನು..
ಬಿರುಗಾಳಿಯಾಗಿ ಬಂದು ತಂಗಾಳಿಯಾಗಿ ಸೋಕಿ
ಮನದಂಗಳದ ಹೂಗಳನು ನಗಿಸಿದೆ
ಅದು ಹೇಗೆಂದು ನಾ ಅರಿಯೆ ಗೆಳತಿ
ಸ್ನೇಹದ ಬೆಸುಗೆ ನೀ ಬೆಸೆದೆ
ಈ ಗೆಳೆತನ ಇರಲಿ ಕೊನೆತನಕ
ಇಲ್ಲವಾದಲ್ಲಿ ನೋವು ಖಚಿತ
ಸ್ನೇಹವೆಂದರೇನೆಂದು ಅರಿಯಲೆಲ್ಲರು
ಸ್ನೇಹ ತುಂಬಿದ ಲೋಕ ಅನವರಥ
ಇರದಿರಲಿ ನಮ್ಮ ಪ್ರೀತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಕಲಹ
ಎಂದೆಂದಿಗು ಇರಲಿ ಈ ನಮ್ಮ ಸ್ನೇಹ......

A Friend that you are!

It was just another day
And it was all blue
I bumped into a beautiful soul
Of which i had no clue

Not in my dreams i had thought
I'd come across someone like this
A person who is so good
But with a different twist

They say that the first impression is the best
But it was so different in this case
The more you try to know this person
You find yourself in a maze

A soul so good by heart
But just so hard to deal
No matter how your thoughts flow
You can never tell how you feel

No more can i describe this person
Who is now my good friend
And i pray to god always
That this friendship has no end !!

ಏನೆಂದು ಕರೆಯಲಿ ನಿನ್ನ...

ಬೇಡದ ನೆನಪುಗಳನ್ನೆ
ಹೊದ್ದು ಮಲಗಿರುವಾಗ
ಹೇಳು ಹೇಗೆ ನೆನೆಯಲಿ ನಿನ್ನ?
ಪ್ರೀತಿಯ ದೀಪ ಹಚ್ಚಿದವನೆಂದ
ಬೆಳಗುವ ದೀಪವ ಆರಿಸಿದವನೆಂದ...!!!

ನೀ ಹೋದ ದಾರಿಯಲಿ
ಕಣ್ಣಿಟ್ಟು ಕಾದೆ
ಕಾಲು ಸೋಲಲಿಲ್ಲ
ಕಣ್ಣೂ ನೋಯಲಿಲ್ಲ
ಕೇವಲ ಕಾಲ ಸತ್ತು ಮಲಗಿತು...

ಬದುಕುತಿದ್ದೆನೋ ಏನೊ
ನಿನ್ನ ಮಧುರ ಕನಸ ನೆನಪಿನಲ್ಲಿ
ಮೊದಲೇ ಸೋತ ಕಂಗಳು ನನ್ನವು
ನೀನು ಕಣ್ಣುಗಳಿಗೆ ಬಣ್ಣ ತುಂಬಲಿಲ್ಲ
ಬದಲಾಗಿ ಕೇವಲ ಮಣ್ಣು ತುಂಬಿದೆ...

ನನ್ನ ಅಷ್ಟೂ ಕನಸುಗಳಿಗೆ
ಘೋರಿ ಕಟ್ಟಿದ ನಿನಗೆ ಒಂದು
ಹೆಸರಿಡಬೇಕು ನಾನು.
ಒಲವ ಕೊಂದ ಕೊಲೆಗಾರನೆಂದ?
ನಗುವ ನನ್ನ ಕಣ್ಣುಗಳಿಗೆ
ಅಳುವ ಪಾಠ ಕಲಿಸಿದ ಕಲೆಗಾರನೆಂದ?

ಗೆಳತಿ ಶೈಲ ಬರೆದದ್ದು....

Mixed Emotions

Sometimes its easy to get lost in this world
I'll find my way somehow someday
But now, am living by the second
No one is gonna hold me back
Not now, not ever.....

Looking back into my past I realize
I had seen the worst coming my way
But its way too late now
Its left me with no words to say
Not now, not ever.....

Seems like the worst is yet to come
It would find its way anyways
But no matter how bad it gets
It sure cant darken my sunny days
Not now, not ever....

My angels have shed their wings
And have lost the heavens keys
Guess i'll have to teach 'em again
The lessons of love and peace
But am afraid if they will ever do so
May be they wouldn't and just say
Not now, not ever...
