Why Be 'The Next'?


in life we get compliments.
feedbacks and comments.
they vary.
make us sad or happy.

if people call you
'the next chetan bhagat'
you will be damn happy i bet.
but i wont.

if people call you
'the next tagore'
you'll be on 7th sky i know.
but i wont.

if people say
'you are next agatha christie'
oh what a day it will be.
you may be happy but not me.

why carry 'the next' tag?
why carry other's bag?
we have our own identity.
we have our own personality.

why be 'the next'? ?
we can be the first.
we too can go a long way.
be the first 'you'
and me the first 'franksay'

    Brilliant way of thinking.
    Just be ourselves; we are all so unique.
    Many great people have been a source of inspiration to me
    but we cannot become them.
    Excellent work. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
