Why don’t I feel weight of this word?
It looks intense
Why can’t I hear drums and orchestra?
Why don’t I feel adrenaline rush?
No racing heart ?
Not a single memory of broad smile..
Deep dimples and tears of joy…?
How can this feel so insubstantial?
I have been staring at it for hours
And it has triggered nothing!
How can I be so unmoved
When the meaning of my real name is achiever?
How can I be so unresponsive
When all I was told ever was to RUN! RUN! and RUN!
Wearing horse blinders until I reach my destiny..
I have seen my highs..
And my lows..
I have been surprised by sudden victories..
And I have crawled out of my failures,
Beaten and defeated…broken and bruised..
But as a better human!
I remember my old self vividly..
I have lived enough to realize and believe,
It’s not always about winning!
