My Mentor

I once was walking on the happy road
From a distance I saw a gloomy shadow
The curiosity made me walk towards her
She was a woman who lost her faith in her
As I passed a smile to her
She smiled instantly as if she got injected by love instantly
She was calm and no gloomier indeed
She asked me who your mentor is
Take me to your mentor
As I want to be like you
I want to dance with life at the same velocity
I smiled and said my mentors are my five senses
When I fail to heed them
The sixth meddles as a key
That makes me gear up
To the happiness indeed
She thought I am making fool of her
She asked me to explain this theory
I said:
When I open my eyes in the morning
Thinking what it will bring to me
I look at my dog everyday
Sitting on my stomach licking my cheek
I hear the sound of birds chirping outside
That makes my ears dance to the positive song indeed
 
When I walk on the road
I look at the dust on the roads dancing freely
The morning breeze kisses my skin
Asking me to let it be
When I think of sickness
I am drawn towards ambulance and hospitals
The nasty smell of medicines makes me shudder with fear for a moment
But that is an inner call to be thankful for good health indeed
When while travelling my car stops at the red light
The homeless people touching me and ask for money
That instantly makes me thankful that I have a job and a home indeed
I used to have problems like others
I often used to think of my life as an empty jungle
Once I was left alone in my house for days
That makes realize that a house is home when we have family indeed
That made me smile
Discerning weeds from the flowers
Darkness to light called family
At those moments I realize my life is not an empty jungle
 It is filled with the fragrance of relations
I have a wonderful family
Whenever I ate my lunch with my colleagues
Some gossips about daily life
Some whisper thank you before eating homemade food
That makes me thank my mother for taking morning pain to prepare my lunch indeed
The taste of my food is so full of love that I end up sharing with people indeed

 

Whenever I get a call or a message of my friends who asks me to meet
Wondering what I will talk to them about I used to meet them without glee
Some used to share insights which sometimes helped me solving my situation
Some used to open there hearts and I learned that I end up giving them solutions
However I have always left my friends with smile with good words coming out of my mouth indeed
That makes me realize that may be every meeting has a reason indeed and every word spoken leads to stronger relation.
In those lonely hours when I struggle hard with myself thinking what’s and why’s
I enjoy reading books or sometimes write
It guides me to all the answers indeed
I sleep tight every night
My father keeps his hand on my head with love
Sometimes I am awake and understands his love for me
May be I am a pampered child
May be I am god’s favorite
But I see and experience my mentor in every situation, in every relation, in the form of family and friends and nature
As if I am holding some invisible key to the door of blessings indeed
The lady smiled and said
Thank you for introducing me to the mentor inside me
I will follow the path of happy road
Surely injecting gloomy faces with the peace within me
