Hrithik Roshan, who is currently recovering after brain surgery, has been spending his downtime by penning a few poems. The actor took to Facebook to post some of these, and has been getting quite a few responses from his friends and fans – so much so, that now he’s actually considering turning his hobby into a book.

Apparently, after reading his poems online, several of his friends came forward and suggested that he work on an inspirational book. He perhaps would’ve been too busy to take some time out for this, but since Hrithik will be spending a few weeks home to recuperate, he’s giving this suggestion a thought. We’ll have to wait and see whether he actually decides to do it, but in the meanwhile, here’s a poem that he wrote:

Eyes on the stars…
Feet on the ground…
I am….. Homebound…

If the clot recurs…a bigger price I pay…
So I’m bound to the bed…4 weeks they say…

(A test of my will in every way)

Duties, tasks, promises unsettled and undone…
The confines of this bed even denies me the Sun…

Betrayed trapped imprisoned restrained…
(I smile) these little blows many a times I have sustained…

In doing so, a trick I learnt… yes a trick I say…
Cause life’s just a game dammit, you gotta see it that way!

So a curse or a boon?
Opportunity or doom?
The trick of the game…is invent the freakin Rule!!

Who decides? ..Who ordains?
We give up that Power..!
is that Sane?

“Luck”,”Fate”,”Destiny”,”Why me?”..
With all of these I disagree.
Its a helpless state…n that’s not me.
Cause What I think… i will eventually Be.

I turn to my bed…now my magical cocoon…
Armed with a vision
N my Attitude…
A miraculous tool!

So ‘I’ decide…and ‘I’ ordain…
This is my enchanted vehicle for infinite growth n gain…!

Read, learn, love, laugh, discover even invent!
The things I can do…this is going to be a supreme event!

So when its time…I’ll fly a higher kind…
With wider wings…n an enlightened mind…

Cause the promise I made yesterday…
Is a promise I cannot betray…
That a Champion i must be… come ….what may..!

Now I look up and Rise…
With stars in my eyes…
My feet on the ground…
I am……. Homebound.

In the horizon I see a glimmer…(Flashbulbs)
In the distance I hear a sound…(Action)
I return a wink to my mother…
My sisters laughter resounds…
They are soldiers who’v battled forever…
This is their turf…their ground.

A father stands triumphant…
His pride silent yet loud…
A wife walks along steadfast…
The meaning of her love avowed…

Eyes on the Stars.
Feet on the ground.
Firmly… … on the ground…
I am ……………..Homebound.
