As I grow older everyday

As we grow older everyday we realise that we are all capable of doing so much more than running a race that society has imagined as appropriate.

grow older everyday
poem justjanet

As we grow older everyday, Life’s routines take so much of our time and sometimes it’s hard to stop. There are however moments where we begin to think if life is only a rat race till we die. Life is much more but there is no manual to follow really. Life is what each one of us makes of it and we are all capable of doing so much more than running a race, that society imagines as appropriate.  Here’s poem that speaks of what the Universe can teach us, to make life more fulfilling, especially for oneself…

As I grow older everyday

I grow wiser.

I also realise I am foolish

For there’s so much more I learn

The horizon grows wider.

The Universe humbles me

For I realise life is so much more,

Than counting the years or the wealth I’ve amassed,

The places I’ve travelled or the degrees I’ve passed.

The Universe teaches me to

Bring joy to those as human as myself

To listen more and judge less.

To cherish moments of tears and smiles

To Live, Love and Breathe

And everyday, transform people’s lives.

  1. This poem should be framed and kept on the desk of every politician, every government official & every such responsible person, just so that each time they think or feel that they are superior to those they have sworn to serve, they are reminded of their duties and who put them there.

  2. Hello sir
    Firstly you and your team is doing great work
    Sir kuch din pehle mujhe AJMER SHARIF jane ka mauka mila wahan jake jo sabse pehle dikhai diya use dekh kar hindu hone ke nate main bohat sharminda hua
    Dargah ke bahar takrebaan 1/2 km tak OM ke bhagwa colour ke jhande ladaye gye hain har dukaan ke baahar agar yehi kaam musalmaan log kisi hindu dharam ke jaghah ke bahar islam ke nishan ke jhande laga de to bawal ho jayega.
    Par mujhe bada sakoon mila wahan ke logon se baat kar ke jab unhone kaha ye sab rss walon ka kiya hai hume ladai nahi chahiye wo lagane aai humne bhi chup chap lagwa diye
    Aap iss baat par bhi video banae or sab ko aware kare ke hindu muslman sab political khel hai iss se door rahain
