Shine, Rise and Have Peace of Mind

One afternoon I was listening to Dire straits song “why worry” which is one of my personal favorite. The song is calm and soothing and the lines that I love most is
“there should be laughter after the pain
There should be sunshine after rain
These things have always been the same
So why worry now”.
I find these lines inspirational and with positive vibes. After listening to Dire Straits I picked my guitar and pulled a chair and sat facing towards the window. When I have nothing to do I mostly watch through the window, see people passing by and some times grab a book and read it facing towards the window. Recently, I finished reading Bob Dylan’s biography “Down the Highway”. It was awesome and loved reading it.
I was strumming guitar, giving a thought to life and suddenly happened to compose in a split of seconds. May be it was Dire Straits’s song or the Bob Dylan’s biography that was working in subconscious mind. what I found was words were coming spontaneously to me like a monsoon rain. I improvised it and the down below lines speaks the rest of the story… 🙂

The sun gonna rise everyday
No matter it’s cloudy or it’s gonna rain through out the day
What about your dreams
those diamond dreams
engrafted by society in your brain
which seems to be fading away
What have you done to your life
Did you live or died till today
Did you live or died every day
what you gonna say

The mother nature shines everyday
No matter what she nurtures you in every way
what about your smile
those golden smile which seem to be faking everyday
and your happiness is rapidly fading away
What have you done to your life
Did you live or died till today
Did you live or died everyday
what you gonna say

The sun rests in the west every day
No matter it’s lightning or the storm is on its way
What about your slumber
Those slumber nights you had in your childhood
seems to be tossing and turning
and your peace of mind is slowly fading away
Did you live or died till today
Did you live or died everyday
what you gonna say

A child is born in the neighborhood
How many life should he suffer in this race
And blessed are those who could rise and shine
Have peace of mind no matter what hurdles are on their way
