Morning walk

After a very long time, today,

I woke up early before the sunrise,

Birds singing along with the fresh air,

Everything made me surprise,

 How heavenly was it,

There resided no ambition to fly,

No fear to fall,

Dim light,

Silent streets,

Added so much charm to it all,

I looked around,

Thought about the people,

Sleeping inside the tall buildings,

Are they really happy?

Or there is something missing?

They have everything,

Money, home, family and friends,

But not the peace of mind,

Everyday they struggle to prove,

Wake up to achieve targets,

Go to sleep with so many regrets,

Is that the life all about?

Life is to keep everyone happy,

Like the singing birds,

Life is to have the peace of mind,

Like the morning air so fresh,

Life is all about caring for people,

Life is going to sleep with no regrets,

And looking in the mirror with no guilt,

I wish the morning would have stayed long,

Sun would have not been so strong,

I wish there would only be mornings,

And the life, be a morning walk.

    This is so serene and peaceful! I enjoyed reading it! You are so right, we have changed the meaning of life, for us world has been so materialistic lately – the peace of mind and contentment is a necessary blessing and few are showered upon with such presents!
