Friday Afternoon

Its Friday afternoon
I am at my desk
I don’t wanna work
I do try my best

Its starting to happen
The Friday afternoon
The excitement is in the air
You see, Friday is a boon

Tip tap tip tap tap tip tip tip tap
Can you define the sound of a key?
Not the one that rings a note
But the one with which you write you see
The speed is faster
The rhythm clear
The tiny typing clatter
From far and near
Why does everything sound louder?
And like music to my ear?

Ring ring goes another phone
‘Hello’ was all the other one said before
There goes Joan’s cell phone
Or was that the one we heard before?
‘Oh Yeah’ ‘Tonite ‘ ‘ meet you there’
‘Tomorrow cant make it’ ‘ cant fit it anywhere’
‘Its your fault man’ ‘I wont argue today’
‘Will you make it to the game’ ‘It is still Friday’
I hear responses, some related, some are not
People have plans, some happen, some may not..
But that aint gonna be the reason, to spoil today
After all its still Friday, is it not?

Everyone has work to do
But the passages get noisier too
It is 3 o clock already now
‘hey! Hello!! Keep it down’
‘Its Friday’ Someone’s screamed back
‘And I, am your boss and I say you work
and Shut up if you wanna come back!!’
Everything is a little calmer
Only for a while to listen to power

Oh! There’s a game on Sunday that’s why the din
It has started to sound like rocks in a tin
Is it that movie that’s gonna release today
Or is it that nominated but lost, that play
The weather is cold, its gonna snow tomorrow
But that aint gonna cause anyone any sorrow.

Its endearing this noise, this day
Like its relieving people from pain
I love my work, I really do
But then Who can deny …
… Friday is weekend past afternoon

I am STRONG!!!!

I am strong and I know, I can beat this
The war's not outside, but within me.
Many have been days of fear and uncertainty
And many I know will pass
Before I reach the destiny I seek.

Long have been the nights,
I have worried myself to sleep
the things I have known I do wrong
I changed not, though I did weep

Long have been the days in dark
I have seeked neither light nor lead
I have let me be led by my fears
Even though I knew it all along

I had dreams and I see them now
and so many days I awoke
to the nightmares that I cooked up
while my dreams awaited my attention.

I have the strength to bend my will
I have the strength to seek help
I will find my path and my way
and reach the destiny I seek.

One day I will be gone!!

I am waiting to hear from you
and one day I will be gone
I am waiting to talk to you
and one day I will be gone

Walk into the oblivion
in thoughts and in pain
Lost to passing time,
my heart and my name..

The voices in my head
will echo in my coffin
the dirt will speak of
my thoughts and of my laughin

of the words I had to say but never really did
of the love I hold that you never really willed
of the pain I endure that you never will know
of the wishes for your dreams to always come true..

I am waiting to hear from you
and one day I will be gone
I am waiting to talk to you
and one day I will be gone

I will follow the path
that I set out on for us
on the way somewhere
there is still a chance that
if you ever lose
the direction you chose
and to the path I walk
on come a little close...

I want to be right there
if you ever choose to talk
to tell you its okay in the end
and the point is to just walk...

I am waiting to hear from you
and one day I will be gone
I am waiting to talk to you
and one day I will be gone

Talk to me …

Ithaca - Constantine Peter Cavafy

As you set out for Ithaka,





Hope your journey is long,
Full of adventure, full of awakening.
Do not fear the monsters of the old
You will not meet them in your travels
If your thoughts are exalted and remain high'
If authentic passions stirs your mind, body and spirit.
You will not encounter fearful monsters ,
If you don't carry them within your soul,
If your soul doesn't set them up in front of you..

Hope your road is a long one.
May there be many summer mornings when,
with what pleasure, what joy,
you enter harbors you're seeing for the first time;
may you stop at Phoenician trading stations
to buy fine things,
mother of pearl and coral, amber and ebony,
sensual perfume of every kind-
as many sensual perfumes as you can;
and may you visit many Egyptian cities
to learn and go on learning from their scholars.

Keep Ithaka always in your mind.
Arriving there is what you're destined for.
But don't hurry the journey at all.
Better if it lasts for years,
so you're old by the time you rea…
