Fingers crossed!

They say ,if you have the conviction and if you believe in yourself and the changes you see around you or in you is the pleasant outcome you’ve always wished for ,nothing’s gonna stop you. We hear  so many stories about ordinary people making it big, or someone who’s expected to be so shattered by his misfortune that it comes as a great shock to see him smiling and continuing with the same zest for life as he had before. There’s so much optimism swirling around it you can’t help but hope.

Truth be told ,it is hard and demands a lot from you and i guess ,that’s the main reason why I never trusted in this simple truth enough to give it a try. My problems may be small ,but if I try ,I can just hope i get to the place where I want to .

Many decisions have been made in my head ,and most of the time many of those have never been followed through. I’m a bit apprehensive , ‘cause whatever I’ve done till now, has been a half hearted effort. Nothing for which i can say i gave it my best shot. So you can see my dilemma in trusting my own will.
I’ve got an idea right now .I’m pretty sure if I do this it’s gonna help a lot in the long run. So good luck to me! 
I burned the rice
(Sad little black grains that only Chinese water torture could remove from the pot)
I missed my train
(A caterpillar of white cars closed off its doors and inched into the dark wormhole of a tunnel without me)
it rained and
I forgot my umbrella
(Somehow, a drop found that space between my coat, my shirt, and my skin, and cold water dripped down my back).


I’ve got a dollar in my pocket
and there are all these excellent puddles on the ground
just right for jumping in.
There’s a smile on my face
and the day is looking up.

P.S again ,i didn't write this :P
