Why can’t you be what you want to be? (40 Sec read)


Ten years down the line,

They will see
Greenery of your bank account,
Area of your mansion,
Cash in your pocket,
Post of your job,

Hardly will be the eyes who will decipher
The murdered dream,
Tormented wish,
Crumpled vision,
Soul who has been in Gehenna,
Behind those Shekels or Dollars or Rupees

Yet today they are the only ones who are suggestingΒ tellingΒ you
This is what you should be
And this is what you’re going to be,
But I want to ask “Why can’t you be what you want to be?

    Very intriguing and worth a read. Nicely written. Inasmuch as your writing is concerned, I like the flow of your thoughts, very easy like riding on a breeze, good construction for the representation of complex thoughts in a very fluid manner. Brilliant.

    As for the piece, well indeed this is the problem. It isn’t easy for one to be what one wants to be because this problem isn’t only skin deep. Look at the education system, what are we taught is what we are believed to become. We are programmed from day one. Family, education, customs, culture and what not- all make us into what we become. Not only in terms of career and future but also in terms of our personalities… tall order this !

      Again, a big Thanks Sir for spending your time in going through my writings. Your words mean a lot to me.
      I’m glad you liked this piece.😊

      Society has programmed everything, from religion to career, in such a way that it has become difficult to get out of its chains shackled around all over us. But, yes we should at least try to get off those chains and try our hands on what we like.

      But thank you again for giving these posts your time.πŸ˜ƒ

    That’s the problem. We don’t live for ourself. All our lives we live for others. πŸ™‚

        Sometimes we are forced to do. Not everything is in our hands. ☺️

      1. I know. My first love is music, but not easy to find a job to do music full time. I turned to education as my career, from teacher to being an administrator. I find music involvement opportunities such as singing in the choir. I do volunteer counseling. I continue to do things to make my life interesting. Here is my last adventure. πŸ™‚

    Maybe we aren’t the lucky ones who are allowed to pursue our dreams… or we don’t have to strength to forgo their relationship to create our own luck to pursue our dreams… It is a just a thought on your question… Your lines are real and articulated in a very good manner… Nice article…😊
