Autobiography of a “Day”……

I am a day, just a Day. Not a good, unscrupulous, shitty or splendid one; am just another day. What demarcates me? A Calendar, the Sun or the individuals….or just some irrational adjectives? I commence at dawn, with the Sun wakening me by its earnest emissions. Sometimes, the Clouds wake me as well, when the Sun’s slightly lethargic. As I wake up, the humans express their eccentric reactions concerning me! Some say, “Today is so important for me”, some jinx me, some compliment me and some are so impersonal about me. No one ever solicits what I think of myself! Who am I? How am I doing? What’s my dialect?

They say, “Morning shows the day”. What does the day show in turn? Well, as I unfold, I share my virtues to everyone, my grandeur, my story and my expressions. I am sunny, I am calm, I am stormy and sometimes I am cold. When I cry, it rains, when am cold, it snows, when am quiet, a storm follows, when am happy, the sun shines. I am a joyful youth, a wise old woman, or a stubborn teen-ager or a passionate lover. I am your companion, your friend and I am your enemy. You remember me, disremember me, overlook me and sometimes cherish me. I am your birthday, your first anniversary, your first kiss or your bereavement. I am music, dance, flowers, rainbow and the sky. I am You.

Ever wondered what happens to the day after dusk? Does the day end, or perish or get vanished? The day, like you, gets tired, sleepy, exhausted. I seek home, a near one, a warm hug, a shoulder to lean and a smile to comfort. That’s when the night cuddles me in its arms and puts me to slumber. I sleep like a baby and dream of the nightfall, the stars tease me in my dreams and the moon safeguards me. I sleep until dawn, thinking, “Tomorrow I will be a better day”.



One thought on “Autobiography of a “Day”……

  1. “Tomorrow will be a better day” – my gullible HEART, almost giddy with joy to hear this phrase was basking in delight when my pragmatic BRAIN intervened with a rather snide remark saying “Really?? What if its not??”.
    And this tug of war between my HEART & BRAIN got me thinking. Indeed so – what if the love for whom I wait everyday never turns up at my door? what if the event for which I waited for eternity never really culminates into reality? what if…..; what if…..; what if…..???
    Gosh! when did life become a barrage of unanswerable questions…huh!!!
    But that’s when my meek-optimist HEART mumbled into my ear saying “Isn’t that’s how it is supposed to be?”
    If you always have everything figured out; if you don’t ever dream of that “unattainable”, whatever that unattainable be – a home, a guy, a car, a job, et al. …..if you don’t have such a wish list to fulfil, wouldn’t life be too easy and too mundane?
    Life is in fact a perpetual journey, all we have to do is to live it and see where it takes us. Of course there will be broken hearts, shattered dreams, unfulfilled promises. But there will also be those few moments of cheer, delight & love which will make this “life” journey bloody worthwhile!!!!
    So, I guess, my HEART & BRAIN never reached at a consensus as to whether tomorrow will be a better day or not. All I know is that – whether or not tomorrow is a better day, but it is a day which belongs to my life and if I have to live it, I will live it rather King size….and look forward eagerly to those “few” precious moments to occur for which I live my everyday…….
