Who says the child won’t grow
Who says he’ll never become a man
Who says she’ll forever remain a toddler
Not knowing his left from his right
Who says this is all there is to her
Who says his best days are now
Who says he is not more than meets the eye
That the prevailing is her last
Who says he won’t learn
Who says her ignorance would survive
Who says he’ll always be daft
Living in ways eccentric
Who says she’s an aberration
Who says he’ll never rhyme with time
Who says her life is done
Never seeing the light of day
Who says the boy won’t find love
Who says she’ll never get a crush
Who says he’ll always be a loner
Not having one to share her heart
Who says his name won’t appear on the list of the great
Who says she’ll always be a mediocre
Never succeeding in finding his identity
Living as a slave to her fellow men
Would you judge him by his ‘now?
Or would you give her a chance to grow?
Would you criticize his ‘today’
Or Help her tomorrow find expression
Even the best of men have been boys once
They have had their own share of mistakes and failure
But had been given only the chance to be their best
If only we will let her grow
At his pace maybe,
Maybe she will find his true self
Unleash his strengths
And release the gift he is for the world to see
Everybody goes through the same phase you are now, why give up on yourself?
Why think no good can come out of you? Why let failure stop you?
Those who try to discourage you are only afraid of what you can do if only you’ll get it right.
Those who say you can’t succeed are only judging from their own failures.
Would you quit being a guest at your own pity party and pick up your life for the better?
There is more to you…am watching out for you!
Let the Child in you grow up!
Become the man you are meant to be!
Happy Children’s Day

There are conversations that are well beyond the boundaries of ‘pen on paper’. Some heartfelt and straight-up words that provide context to concepts. That’s what this podcast is about. Here are my musings on Love, Life, and Faith as I probe human thoughts and thoughts around these themes. Sometimes, I’m right. Sometimes, I way out of line. And at other times, I’m just as clueless. Trust me, It’s going to be a funny, yet insightful, and inspiring ride. Buckle your seat belts.
Ever heard of that song that says it is impossible for a butterfly to extinguish a barbecue fire? Well, that’s a true saying, but…..
There are truly impossible things, but only within given contexts. Seasons change, miracles happen, content changes, change happens, discoveries are made, and what seems to be impossible becomes possible.
