Past -> Present -> Future... interlinked!

A little something i wrote when i was at a not-so-good phase in life, personally and career-wise. one of those times when everythng seems to go wrong and there is no one in your life who can understand what you are going through... a very lonely time indeed. Glad i am out of it now. but, as i always say - "your past is what makes your present that shapes your future." so i believe that you should never forget your past. it has the key to your future. but that doesnt mean that you keep holding on to it like a security blanket. the biggest thing that one needs to learn is the difference between remembering the past, learning from the mistakes or cherishing the happy moments AND living in the past. the past is done and over with. you can't change it. you can't bring it back. but this same past was once your present (pretty complicated thought huh? read it again ;) ) the decisions you made in the past have an effect in your present. and what you decide today will determine your future. anyway i am not a saint. sometimes i also forget the distinction where past ends and the present begins. i also forget that past has gone and no matter how hard i try it will never come back. this hold true for the good times and the bad.

but enough of the gyaan... this is a no gyaan post. its abt me and how i felt some years back. posting those couple of lines here, so i always remember how i felt and be grateful that i have passed it.

" All i wanted were a couple of smiles, but He filled thousand tears in my eyes...
And He said to me softly, let them rain, they'll wash away all your sadness and pain...
The tears fall down hard and everything they do erase...
But they also make me realize, the world is indeed a very lonely place."

Don't believe in this anymore but at some point i did. another thing that i believe is nothing lasts forever. if the good times disappear so do the tough times. If people change, so do situations and circumstances. we just have to go on. thats life. Now, for me, that same couplet reads something like -

"All i wanted were a couple of smiles, but He filled thousand tears in my eyes...
And He said to me softly, let them rain, they'll wash away all your sadness and pain...
The tears fall down hard and everything, the hurt and the sorrow, they do erase...
your hand wipes them away and I realize, the world is not such a lonely place." :)
