Finding Peace on a Rainy Day

Closing her eyes,

She raised her head,

Into the wind,

And felt it flit across her face.

 

Reaching her soul,

It made her forget,

All the worries, that were bringing her distress.

 

A little drizzling joined the breeze,

Falling on her face, and bringing out the smile,

Enabling her to feel the peace.

 

Inside and out,

She felt it all.

Inside and out,

She felt free.

I was trying to write something where I can show you and can make you feel about the weather and how it affected me rather than just state about it.

This is my first shot at this. Do tell me how did I do.

Are you feeling it? :/

The World of Numbness

Sometimes you feel a little down, not your usual self. Like the gloominess has engulfed you and drained you out of all the energy. Sometimes you feel…nothing. Sometimes you just shut down. That’s when you actually wake up!

When this feeling of numbness comes over you, you drop the acting, you allow your deep and sometimes dark feelings to overwhelm you. Even though you still keep your walls way up high, and your lips sealed, still you allow your mind to wander to places you haven’t visited in a while.

At that time, you enter your ‘self’, the one that you keep hidden or show only to few. All that is also a part of you, all that is also ‘you’.

You can’t just bag a part of you and lock it up forever, it tends to come to the surface from time to time. Don’t try to fight it, I know I have tried, it only depresses you more. Take a break, take a time alone or with your loved ones, however you feel at ease. Or like me, spend some time with a pen and a page. Let it out. Ease yourself. Try to connect with your ‘deep self’, so you can go back to your ‘normal self’ with a peace of mind.

Should we fight for peace??

Quite an impressive post by Sid (Vision of Sid). I wish we can get more people to think like this.
Give it a reading and join the peace squad. 🙂

The beginning

Should we fight for peace, well this is what happening in the world. Countries are trying to control the wars through the war nowadays. We are trying to get peace through the war. That’s the problem: This is just like throwing woods in the fire instead of water. From more than 2000 years we are trying to get peace, but with no results. There are many examples that you could look at to understand what exactly I mean by this. If you take a look at human history you’ll see that we’ve fought many wars and many battles in the name of peace, but where has that really gotten us? Its 2017 and we still have “war against terror” ”war against regions” ”war against poverty” “war against disease”.

Take a minute and actually think about how the thought of “fighting” something makes you feel. Does it make you…

A Poem for Grandpa

You were almost eighty-five

But as active as five

 

You were there for us all your life

But we got tired in just thirteen days

 

None of us ever realized that we will lose you

This way, this fast

 

But we are glad Allah took you away peacefully

May you enter His court gracefully (ameen)

 

Here you got everything you wished for

May you get the highest seat there (ameen)

 

You can never be forgotten

The hollow space that you have left in our hearts

There you will stay, always …
