It happens...

courtesy friends18.com

When you think you’re almost there,
at the very moment near the finishing line…
Someone goes past you, coming from nowhere!
...it happens…

When you know that you’ve done well,
and have given your best in every level…
Still, the outcome lets you down!
...it happens…

When you believe that it’s gonna be fine,
with utmost faith in yourself & almighty god…
Everything goes wrong in just matter of seconds!
...it happens…

When you see your life heading the right way,
with every bits & pieces in the right place…
You stumble and fall all the way down!
It happens…

When you are happy for all the good reasons,
not aware of what lies ahead across the lane…
Sadness replaces the smile with heavy tears!
It happens…

...

...

No matter what happens, it's just the matter of time,
the good things do come back...
Hopes may go down, dreams may shatter
It happens.. 
but only to make way for the new ones.



P.S: I know it's a bad poem... or may be it's not even a rhyme! it's just came out of my mind... have written here without working much on the 'rhyming' part of it.. just wanted to convey the message.. I hope that I was able to do that.. ..

Hey Sunil, I think it’s beautiful and the words do convey their meaning.
Life is fickle and we never know what will happen the next moment. So the best funda is just live the moment and forget about the past (you cannot change it) and future (you cannot predict it)
beautiful and it happens in your post.. :-)

Someone is Special

I don't think it's a bad poem. It's an honest poem as you said it came out of your mind/heart.

yes, shit happens :)

like the positive note at the end
Life is the way you see it! :) The view is not a bad or sad one but a obvious one in certain ways. But then, there is always a silver lining at the end... see the brightest part, always! :)

@ Prasanna Rao - Thank you prasanna ma'am. Ya, even I want to think like that, but sometimes, few things make us think otherwise...

@Sum1 is Spl - Thanks buddy.. :)

@Saru - Thank you Saru jee... Yeah, I can say that it was honest at least..

@Magiceye - Exactly.. I was thinking of using that phrase.. :)

@Devi - Rightly said devi.. After all, we live with that hope... But even that hope sometimes make us think negetive.. I was just trying to capture that feeling..

@Menachery - First of all, welcome to "From the eyes.." Thank you... And yeah, after those phase of life, believing there will be silve lining at the end is the toughest part.. But then, it will be there for sure.. might take some time to reach out....
