Meaningful Poem

I assume life to be a journey of finding the true soul in oneself.... every day and night the thought that my feelings are in accordance to my action makes me feel wholesome...... the process how I learnt about myself is well described by this poem.

Awake Or Asleep

© Neha
Everyday I think of something beautiful and deep,
Before I go to sleep.
It brings a smile
And gives the strength to go another mile.
What does a day hold;
If itís not something sweet and bold?
A hello to a new stranger
A hug to the old friend
A kiss to the beloved,
And a fight with someone close and at hand.
A walk of faults and regrets
Giving hope to make things best.
Thoughts that may be a little sad
Reminds of all things that make me happy.
Slowly in the years I realized
Nobody is born intelligent and wise.
Risk taken can be calculated
And truths can be manipulated.
Itís not when I get up from sleep
Itís how much Iím awake when Iím going to sleep.
