Design your Life



Design the life,
The life you dream to live
Channel all your energies
In creating the masterpiece.
Let your life
Look like a beautiful artwork
Sound like an enchanting melody.
Yes, we can all do it
By blending the power
Of our Heart and Mind,
And not letting them 
Be at constant loggerheads.
Design your life, 
The life you dream to live
Adversities will spill ink
Mangle your design time and again
They'll cripple and discourage you. 
Rest for a while, if you must
Take a deep breath
And start afresh again
Don't quit till you've created the masterpiece.


Linking my new poem on Design with Poets United Midweek Motif ~ Design

As 2015 is about to end in 2 weeks, let's promise to make 2016 an amazing year of our lives by designing it in the best possible way.

  1. Love. And I have a special fondness of the word "loggerheads"--never thought I'd see it in a poem. You set up the contrast beautifully, and I feel encouraged to strive for a good design in 2016.

    1. Thank you so much, Susan. I was just wondering how we let the heart and the mind constantly be at loggerheads and this poem was thus born.
      Wish you a great 2016 :)

  3. Every day is a new beginning. Keep on keeping on striving. The constant struggle between the mind and heart is always a dilemma.Poets are always going to experience this one but then again it is a useful continuing source of rich material:)
