life as we know it...

the pained expressions...
eyes belying the arrogance...
defeated gaits...
swollen eyes...
ruffled hair...
sometimes even "gods" can take a fall...
our idols can look lacklustre at best...
there are times when you can pity your sagging enemy...
when you can feel the torment...
the disgust...
the loss of pride and respect...
when the act of surrender and submission is made to look sinful...
when your soul hath been scorned upon and scorched...
who are the heroes?
who are the greats?
who will guide us...
who will motivate us...
we all need icons...
symbolic as they may be...
but we do nonetheless...
just like we need stickers on our cars...
to make a statement...
to show our allegiences...
but why?
are we really all that?
just that...?
that...?
THAT!!!...
is that all we will ever be...
i feel that life aint about winning or losing...
that glory aint the trophy...
glory is the experience...
glory is being THERE...
glory is loving what you do...
glory is LIFE...
with all its intricasies and pain...
glory is when a special kid is raised up as normal...
glory is when a heart donor gives life to you at his cost...
glory is making a difference...
no brawny trophies could ever be all that...
i know...
i really do...
i feel i do...
i thought i did...
life is truly beautiful...
life is about finding your own meanings...
interpreting your own incidents...
striving for meanings...
deciphering the cryptic codes...
inferring from them and never letting go..
to never say die...
to believe in yourself...
life...
will then turn to you...
and give you beyond your wildest expectations...
learn to believe in it...
co peacefully coexist...
and one day you too will have your hands full...
till that day...
LET THE ROLLERCOASTER BEGIN...

P.S im listening to Abba's Winner takes it all...
and i know there arent no losers...
we deem ourselves that...
we show others how weak we are...
we degrade ourselves...
let our alters be strong...
let our principles be irreconciliable...
i dont know if that is a word...
duty calls...
macro two here i cometh...
