To Be or Not to Be

I often see disgrace in love
I often see selfishness in giving

I feel the force of hatred in me
I feel the shade
But its only a Tree

Sometimes to give
And sometimes to be

As loving as one can
And selfless as a bee

I know it as today
But tomorrow will I see?

A dream of togetherness
with depth of a sea

I don’t know it now
who will tell me how

or whether
‘To be or not to be..’

Hold on

Many times in life you have to do
and yes give up a zillion mighty things
To live your life in dreams at strings
and watching what it brings

You live each day with a moment that comes
And don’t want it to reel out so fast
In truth it’s just a door of glass
and at last it will perhaps blast

Wish you were blessed with a breath of cure
One that is the only last
So you don’t have to suffer that way
for longing to spend it fast

Open your heart, mind, breath and sight
And see what your time brings
As you fall from the cliff, to your surprise
you will be gifted with bright little wings
