Life is but an optimization game

This is one of those days. You know, when I am not making fun. So here is the serious stuff.
Consider yourself warned.

Welled up with choked emotions?
Holding tight grief of letting go?
Find that sink to pour it in
Look around there's an ear so


No balm better than a smiling face
No balm better than a perky tone
No balm better than a hand in hand
No pain worse than suffering alone


Letting go can be cleansing
If you see the convoluted fun
Just don't fill the void in a hurry
Bad filler is worse than none


Life is but an optimization game
And dollops of macabre constraints
Winning is finding the best of stations
Losing is just being restrained

बातें नए तेवर में
बातें नए कलेवर में
बातों से निकली बोली
बातों से निकली होली
बातों का मधुपर्व मनाएं
आयें प्रत्यूष की बातों से नहाएं

So, finally I am posting a comment for this one too.... u can :-)
Actually, its something like this, that u hav to b in one of a situation to get this poetry of urs right.
I have been upset since yesterday (hope u dont ask why), and today morning, I thought of visiting ur blog, and I just happened to read this verse of urs, well, and believe me, in the first go it did make so much of sense to me, so much of a meaning, that i am wondering what was i thinking when I read it on the very first day and said that it didn't make sense to me....probably i was a bit too happy then....well, now I can applaud for it really and truly

Forgot to mention something, that I really really liked the 2nd and 3rd stanzas....couldn't decide which is the best..... of course I am complementing u....but I can tell u my favorite line -
Just don't fill the void in a hurry
Bad filler is worse than none
Expecting something gud again...soon
