The Cry Of The Youth - Will We Ever Touch The Sky?



Slowly,
We have outgrown from our fairy-tale lands,
And today, we stand on the cross roads of our lives...
Trying to digest the fact, that the real world is not as beautiful
As the ones we were once told about.

We have now been exposed to a world filled with choices...
So many unknown paths have been opened in front of us,
So many things we wish to try out...
But,
We are bonded and restricted,
Because of our confused minds and hearts...

So many dreams we want to fulfill,
But,
When shared-
We are called silly.
Parents on one side, peers on the other,
An unbalanced support we get,
And in the end,
It all leads us to nowhere...
And,
Once again we are back to the crossroads,
Confused which path to choose.

So many thoughts, just waiting to come out,
So many questions are filled in our minds...
But,
In this busy life which we have been imposed with,
We are forced to swallow back our dreams
And follow a path which we are told to take!

We all want to spread out our wings,
And fly...
Fly higher and higher and live the life we once dreamed about.

But,
How do we fly when are wings are always cut,
When we have the hopes of touching the sky
And living the life of our dreams...!

WE HAVE TALENT.
HE HAVE COURAGE.
WE HAVE DREAMS...
ALL WE NEED IS A CHANCE,
A MOMENT,
TO PROVE THAT WE CAN ACHIEVE!

We are the youth of today,
The future of tomorrow,
Just
Let us live and touch the sky
-This is our cry!!

    my dear lonely dreamer,
    the pretty kiddos lane,

    earth,

    yours mockingly
    ...


    dont mind the letter. it was just meant to make this comment as extraordinary(in a lame way) in order to compete with the fantasticness of the poem.

    ps: the world is a dream. it just isnt always what we dreamed it to be. :)

  3. It reminds me of two songs, at once.

    Youth of the nation


    and


    Young, by Hollywood Undead


    We are young
    We are far
    Born in this world as it all falls apart
    We are strong
    We don't belong
    Born in this world as it all falls apart

  5. Juhi,

    The turmoil of youngster's mind brought out so well. This one is a MUST READ for all parents and teachers. We need to let youngsters work to fulfil their dreams unless it is too risky for their life.

    Take care

  10. जब विचारों में आपसी टकराव होता है तो कन्फ्यूजन पैदा होता है
    जब युद्द के मैदान में अर्जुन जैसे धनुर्धर को पेनिक अटेक आ सकता है और वो युद्द छोड़ने की सोच सकता है तो हम तो आज के साधारण लोग हैं
    टेलेंट , साहस , सपनों के आलावा एक जरूरी चीज है वो है जीवन का ज्ञान , गाइडेंस ....पुराने ग्रंथों से मिल सकता है ...मानव का मस्तिष्क इतना क्षमतावान है की वो हर मुसीबत से जीत सकता है

    शुभकामनाएं

  11. एक बात और ....
    ऐसी कोई उम्र नहीं है जब इंसान दुखी ना होता हो [युवावस्था हो या वृद्ध अवस्था ]
    और ऐसी कोई उम्र नहीं जब वो प्रसन्न न रह सकता हो [युवावस्था हो या वृद्ध अवस्था ]
