When All You Were Is No More

We are all running around in this world, one corner to the other. Finding ourselves, making ends meet or may be just for the sake of it. We form these principles in our head, these images of who we are and what we should be. And its a constant struggle to keep that image alive. Proving things to the world and mostly to ourselves. At the end of a day, we look back, and go “i held myself up, i remained what i should be.”

But then there comes a time, when that picture of yourself you had conjured is torn down to tiny pieces. You don’t know what you ought to be anymore ’cause all you thought you were, all you believed you are, has disappeared in front of you and you are exposed. You don’t know what to do, how to do and most importantly      why to do things anymore because all you are is no more..

And these are the times when we are presented with an opportunity. A chance to choose. To choose what you want to be, how you want to be, and who you ought to be. It’s a chance to build yourself from scratch. All that was is no more. It’s a blank canvas for you to paint on. And it’s your choice whether you want to choose the dark shades or light ones or may be combine the both. In the end what you will get, is a masterpiece. It won’t be up for an auction for you are the sole owner. Your very own creation-creation of character, creation of self that compliments the creation of the Divine.

So, when life breaks you down, don’t be hopeless. For it’s not a time to sob for yourself(okay, maybe you can sob a little and let it all out and then go on to discover a new you!). It’s a time to take control and build yourself all over again. Undo the wrongs, take a step towards perfecting what was a mess before.  Because, what might look like a curse can be the universe, giving you a chance to grow stronger and be nourished in wisdom.



A Desire…

“There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart’s desire. The other is to gain it.”
~George Bernard Shaw

a desire is a strong emotion

it stems from within;

and overpowers all our senses, for what we desire

gives character to our being.

desires run deep, deep within ourselves

master of the unconscious.

unspoken, but but very much there

sneaking out when least expected.

little things in life

that seem to be

without reason, so is a desire

no way to explain. no justifications

but sometimes our souls

run deeper than a puddle. discover reason,

and overcome the desire.

with much grievance, moving ahead.

but the desires not dead

it lurks deep inside

visiting in dreams, making us cry

as is nature, we are bound to forget

just to move onto

another desirable  object.
