Hard Life

October 6, 2012

Every passing day erodes my confidence
Every passing moment takes away my hope
Every passing person shoots the same question

It is hard to put up a fake smile & move around
It is hard to pretend as if everything is alright
It is hard to believe when there is no hope

How could I not let out my frustration?
How could I stop feeling depressed?
How could I end hurting others?

I know this is not gonna last forever
I know everything is gonna be alright
But how long and how many to lose

Sometimes, Life comes as a surprise
Sometimes, it comes as a blessing
And other times it comes really hard at u…

Throwing you in the deepest and darkest pit ever
Making you wander around lonely and secluded
Can I find a light of hope in this darkness??

I never take risk……

I never take risk while drinking ……..

When I come from office in the evening, wife is cooking
I can hear the noise of utensils in the kitchen
I stealthily enter the house
Take out the bottle from my black cupboard
Shivaji Maharaj is looking at me from the photo frame
But still no one is aware of it
Becoz I never take a risk

I take out the glass from the rack above the old sink
Quickly enjoy one peg
Wash the glass and again keep it on the rack
Of course I also keep the bottle inside my cupboard
Shivaji Maharaj is giving a smile

I peep into the kitchen
Wife is cutting potatoes
No one is aware of what I did
Becoz I never take a risk

I to my wife : Any news on chopra’s daughter’s marriage
Wife : Nope, she doesn’t seem to be that lucky. Still they are looking out
for her

I again come out; there is a small noise of the black cupboard
But I don’t make any sound while taking out the bottle
I take out the glass from the old rack above sink
Quickly enjoy one peg

Wash the bottle and keep it in the sink
Also keep the Black Glass in the cupboard
But still no one is aware of what I did
Becoz I never take a risk

I to Wife : But still I think chopra’s daughter’s age is not that much
Wife: What are you saying? She is 28 yrs old… like an aged horse
I: (I forgot her age is 28) Oh Oh…

I again take out potatoes out from my black cupboard
But the cupboard’s place has automatically changed
I take out the bottle from the rack and quickly enjoy one peg in the sink

Shivaji Maharaj laughs loudly
I keep the rack in the potatoes & wash Shivaji Maharaj’s photo & keep it in
the black cupboard

Wife is keeping the sink on the stove
But still no one is aware of what I did
Becoz I never take a risk

I to Wife: (getting angry) you call Mr. chopra a horse? If you say that
again, I willcut your tongue…!
Wife: Don’t just blabber something, go out and sit quietly…

I take out the bottle from the potatoes
Go in the black cupboard and enjoy a peg
Wash the sink and keep it over the rack
Wife is giving a smile

Shivaji Maharaj is still cooking
But still no one is aware of what I did
Becoz I never take a risk

I to Wife : (laughing) So chopra is marrying a horse!!
Wife: Hey go and sprinkle some water on your face…

I again go to the kitchen, and quietly sit on the rack
Stove is also on the rack
There is a small noise of bottles from the room outside

I peep and see that wife is enjoying a peg in the sink
But none of the horses are aware of what I did
Becoz Shivaji Maharaj never takes a risk

chopra is still cooking …
And I am looking at my wife from the photo and laughing
Becoz I never take…… never take ….. never take what???       I never
take a potato I think…
