Every once in a while...

Every once in a while..

Every once in a while;during the daybreak when it's time to wake up

And face the harsh realities of this world,

I have deliberately made the mistake of taking a break.

Sleep again, so that morning blues don't strain my brain.

And I had be happy and cosy again;

Though only for a short while, lay back..

Entertain my dreams and fall asleep again.

For this gives me immense pleasure; And I have loved to do this

Often and again.

Every once in a while;

I have broken the rules

And cursed the fools who made these tools;

For they are so uncool and had better be drowned in some deep pool.

Every once in a while;

I have sit near the window

And simply gaze at the night sky

Jewelled with moon and stars

I have often asked them, 'how they have been all this while'; no matter how far they seem and I do know that my voice won't reach.



Every once in a while;

I have intentionally slowed down

And allowed myself to move with the flow;

Give rest to my tired soul to heal and repair on its own.

So that once again, I am left all fresh and rejuvenated

And revived my glow.

Every once in a while;

I have let the little child in me come out;

And would forget all my worries;

Dance in the rain;

Play in the mud, laugh a little more and care a little less.

Be the master of my domain

And reign.



Every once in a while;

I have looked at the mirror

And asked myself;

Have I been fair enough

To the person in the mirror

And cared and looked after her needs well.

Every once in a while;

I have escaped the monotony

And done things out of the way

That had make me happy and gay;

What say, Every once in a while;let us sometimes break the chain and do things out of the way.

कभी कभार सब करना चाहिए

जीवन में उदार रहना चाहिए

जिंदगी को मस्त बनाने के लिए

आदतें भी बदलती रहनी चाहिए

कभी कभार दिल को मस्ती दो

कभी कभार शरीर को मस्ती दो

कभी कभार अपनी हस्ती बदल दो

कभी कभार खुद को आईना दिखा दो

वर्ना मजबूरियों में ही दबे रहोगे

काम से अगर फुर्सत ना लोगे

जीवन नीरस हो जाएगा तब

ख़ुद की पहचान भूल जाओगे
