In Doubt..

What is it like to be sure?
Of what is yet to be..
Or to calmly endure
The ill-fitting pieces of Reality

How does it feel to be Certain?
of being completely right
and not have eyes for the Grey
Between the Black and White

What would it be like to make friends
With the Road and walk alone
and trust it to give a dream
across the seas and the timezones

What is it like to know
That even in this man-made Reality
of Planes, Borders and Passports
There is still much room for Uncertainty!

yeah a really good one.....:)..liked it !
'uncertainty' is something everyone is scared of ...but each and every person has to face ...sometimes earlier sometimes later in life. no one can be 100 percent sure about anything and we have to accept , as you have rightly said ....there is still much room for uncertainty !

Uncertainity makes
The world go around
'Predictability' to it
Has a disappointing sound!

@ Alien..
=) yah..you may be right
but so much for a persistent fight
With the unpredictable Reality..
with the Future out of Sight?

Well, some lines I wrote a long time back seem relevant..

There are days
And there are days

Towering tall
The mountains today
Tomorrow shall
Small hills portray

Alien said...

*Bah*
Forgot a line... was wondering why it was sounding weird...

It goes like

There are days
And there are days
Eventually does
Time all efface
Towering tall
The mountanins today
Tomorrow shall
Small hills portray..

Guess thats more like it!!

I guess the right way is just "to be" and laugh. :)

Saee,
Uncertanity is most certain and certanity most uncertain.

We view life from a certain logical angle but in facy it is most ilogical.

Most of the 'Why's do not have a perfect answer.

So one should not expect certanity or logic from life.Just do your Karma consistantly.Let there be certanity about your Karma. Then take the life as it comes.IT IS RALLY BLISSFUL
