SIMPLY SHOBANA

At first glance, it seemed easy, I, the traveler on a weary road to perhaps fame, I tamed my mind to think in ways one would want to impress, But like a toddler taking baby steps, I fall, struggling to get back on my feet.


The route I took seemed all too ready to steady that feet, Through stumbling tears, I made my smiles just as effortless, I cried first, then I laughed, Isn’t laughter sometimes created from tears?


The road was long, the road was windy, The road took me to eternity, I wondered at some point if I would reach eternity, yes, eternity, But stop I did not, I traveled through time, I traveled through eternity.


There were days when I thought “not a second to waste,” Until one day I realized that it took time to reach eternity, It was the long road I had chosen, Through much travail, none of which man can know or hear of.


I trudged with time on the long road to eternity once, Right now, I face, I stare ahead, I have not seen the end, No, there is no end, I have only been on the trail to the “beginning.”

The End.

The World On A Margarita High!

Cheers, to a hopefully great year ahead; post-pandemic would be just ideal.


What the world needs is a shot of margarita on special occasions,

A view of the sunset, 

A blazing streak,

On a skyline that is beyond your reach,

It takes one on an unimaginable high,

Then, to catch the stars gather dust,

On a beautiful nighted, lighted sky,

Plus,Great Company!

A free heart maketh a beauty untamed.

Every turn a difference I see,

Not one looked alike – was this me?

So, I asked the mirror –“What do you see?”

It said a little coyly – “No wrinkles do I see!”

So I said in return, “Mirror, mirror on the wall,

If there is one thing I want most of all,

Is to see a face that remains happy with a smile,

Coz’ I heard it said, Smiles don’t age…”

And the mirror replied, “Vanity, my dear friend, vanishes through the years! So smile throughout your years, a free heart maketh a beauty untamed.”

He asked me again if I thought the world beautiful,

And I replied, “As fresh as the morning dew, or the petals of a full bloomed rose, the world is as beautiful as the colors of its sunlit riverbeds, invigorating as the freshest grapevines, as gentle as snowflakes, as pristine as the risen lakes, and as majestic as the mountains that captivate the world above as it does the world below. Do you see it the way I do?”
