Life in notebooks

some wait for a perfect line,

some are too hesitant to write,

out of fear of making a mistake,

some are busy guessing the count of pages left,

to see how many pages left,

burying the hope that another notebook might be waiting for them,

meanhwile, pages keep flipping themselves,

number at the bottom keeps increasing,

each has choice,

to fill the page open in full,


to leave it blank,

if you get too engrossed amid,

what you wrote was right or wrong,


what you will write next,

you might miss the page open,

no story is perfect in any book,

there will be scribbles struck off lines,

misspelled words,

so be with page, thats in front of eyes,

you might be tempted to peep in others notes,

but they maybe at different point and page ,

so don’t copy,

don’t mourn the fact that you are not allowed an erasor,

for no one is,

don’t be too serious about how the story is going,

feel free to scribble,

draw and have fun in the margins running parallel…
