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.

A Present or A Penalty

“…..today is a gift. That is why, it is called the present.”

You probably have heard or read this quote, a million times. But it only speaks to you, when you are on cloud 9. It might even work, if you are somewhere around it. But what to go with, when you feel like you have nothing to go with.

From my understanding, I think our moods or situations cannot stop today from being a gift. It might not be the gift, one is hoping for, or wants at that time, but you will come around to it.

When you get a gift, you don’t throw it at the giver’s face just because you don’t like it. Instead you smile and say thank you. You put aside that gift for later use. That’s what you do. You do not lash out,  just because someone didn’t get you what you wanted. That’s how it is with today and life.

In life, we have to face some things, go through experiences, that we wish, we never had to. We question them, even lash out at our creator, for putting us through all that. But do you know, He also gets us out of it. All we have to do is never give up.

We can take a break, cry our eyes out, but we should never quit. The direction might not be what we have planned. But then again, can we ever be sure, that where we are heading, is where we want to be.

Think about it.

Hold On to Your Memories!

How time passes

In a blink of an eye

That’s how

 

At one second, you are living the moment

The next it is all gone

Nothing more than a memory

 

All you can do now, is think about it

Because it ain’t coming back

 

You wish to live it again

But that time has passed

 

You think about deleting it out of your life

But it is like engraved in your mind

 

You try to push it back

Way back in the dark

Where it can never see the light

 

But if you do that,

What will you have to cherish?

 

When the times will get hard,

From where you will get your hope?

 

When you will get down,

How will you get back up?

 

If you let go of all those unforgettable memories,

                           all those remarkable moments,

How will you find your way in life???

****

We all carry with us a bundle of memories that we love and cherish. Sometimes they might seem unbearable as we cannot turn back time and relive them. At some point in life, when we say things like ‘time changes, people change…‘ or when we lose the people we made memories with, we think of getting rid of those memories or wishing that we never had them, just to protect our hurting heart.

Do not let go. Hold on to them. They make you who you are. They are your light, your hope, your strength and definitely NOT your weakness.

Create Your Own Fairy-tale

They say the world is a place without magic,

What if they are wrong?

They say there are no happy endings,

What if they are mistaken?

*

You!

Yes you.

You hold the key to your very own fairy tale.

*

Be kind and gentle like Snow White.

Be free-spirited and tough like Merida.

Be optimistic and graceful like Cinderella.

Be noble and strong like Mulan.

Be lovely and selfless like Belle.

Be faithful and adventurous like Pocahontas.

Be lively and clumsy like Anna.

Be elegant and brave like Elsa.

Be cute and rebellious like Ariel.

Be determined and unique like Tiana.

Be charismatic and innocent like Rapunzel.

*

Be your own fairy godmother,

Be your own prince charming,

*

Don’t be afraid to fall,

Just stand up and smile.

Because you hold the magic,

You hold the key to your happy ending.

I think this is the best poem I am written in a while.

It conveys a good message.

What you think?

Do comment, if you think it’s worth it and if it is not, do leave your suggestions. I will appreciate them.

Thank You.
