Never Yours

I came across an article the other day that said if you live for 90 years, you have spent 32 years of life sleeping ! Such a waste of time, right? We spend most of our life chasing that are not even meant for us. The following poem is inspired from this thought. I hope I do justice to it. Do let me know what you think of it.

The feelings are yours, but the heart

That will never be yours

The ego is yours, but the anger

That will never be yours

The relations are yours, but the people

They will never be yours


The reasons are yours, but the results

Those will never be yours

The defeats in life are yours, but the failures

They are never yours

The achievements will remain yours, but the credits

They will never be yours


The plans you make are yours, but the time

That will never be yours

The wants are always yours, but the needs

Those are never yours

The dreams are yours, but the life

That will never be yours

– Sahaj Nalgirkar
