From a Distance

Standing at a distance,
I see myself changing

Those miles I have walked
Carrying emotional baggage
Those ups and downs I have crossed
I feel strength in my legs

Every tear drop on the way
Has turned in to a diamond
Every sweat drop
Is now a goldmine

My baggage is getting reduced
I feel light, as I walk further
Though tomorrow looks scary
It looks beautiful and interesting too

Every smile I had on the way
Makes me smile, even today
It’s a never ending saree am draping
Changing the way I look, everyday

Only from a distance, I can see all these
What a beautiful journey life has been
I know am here to learn, to become more
I know, my path, is just and green

ಅನತಿ ದೂರದಿ ನಿಂತು
ಗಮನಿಸುತ ನಿಂತೆ
ನನ್ನವೇ ಹೆಜ್ಜೆಗಳ ಹಾದಿ

ಹೊತ್ತ ಭಾವಗಳ ಗಂಟು
ಬದುಕಿಗಿಂತಲೂ ಭಾರ
ಇದೇ ಖಾಲಿ ತಲೆ ಮೇಲೆ!

ಇಲ್ಲಿ ನಿಂತೊಮ್ಮೆ
ಗಂಟಿನ ವಜನು ತೂಗಿದೆ
ಸೋರಿದಷ್ಟೂ ಹೊರೆ
ಕಳೆದುಳಿದ್ದು ಇನ್ನೂ
ಉಳಿದಿದೆ ಉಳಿದಿದೆ...
