The key....

Two boxes hold my fate today,
They shall decide my destiny,
Will my life be beautiful,
Depends on whether I find the right key....

One box holds victory and success,
With love, laughter and care,
Life really wouldn't hold much meaning,
If this box wouldn't be there....

The other is filled with defeat and sorrow,
With competition, guilt and greed,
To appreciate the value of the first box's contents,
This box, I definitely need....

The two keys attract me equally,
So, finally I decide,
That I need to strike a balance between both,
And open both the boxes wide....

With trust and hope and confidence,
This mighty problem I fix,
I take all the contents,
And come up with a fantastic mix!

I realise, life is all about sugar and spice,
Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win,
Right and wrong keys just don't exist,
For, the key to happiness lies within!!!!

Key to happiness. Let go - the essence of *I*.

Remember Frost, "Two roads diverged in a wood and I - I took the one less travelled by, And that has made all the difference."

I remember reading a story which went something like not just true happiness, but true inspiration also lies within. It is us who forget to look inside ourselves because we are so busy looking elsewhere..!

Nice verses...

Trust all is well.

Very down to earth topic chosen and well written. Nobody will try a blend of UPS & DOWNS in life. Everyone thinks only of UPS. But as quoted if DOWNS didn't exist the happiness of UPS in life would merely have been felt.

Extremely beautiful "Happiness is a state of mind and you are the Creator of it" - As Neha commented the last line says it all.

Well written !!

Iam not sure if people get a choice between good and bad, if so, everyone will go for the good one. The fact that we have the choice to decide what to do with the situation, that matters.

Well expressed lines...
