Sometimes a bold step is a much needed step.
Life isn’t as easy as it seems. You expect and then you get hurt. You love and then you get hurt again. Basically for some people it’s just pain. Life’s designed to test you at every turn; you need to make sure you keep your emotions in check and your dreams at hold.
There came a storm in my life that left me lonely and made me question the very reason of existence. There was no particular reason for the time and hence no reasonable solution. It was as if darkness had just swept in my soul and no matter what I did the darkness just grew darker and stronger.
After a month of dilemma and silence I knew I had to do something. I would just see the bad in people. I would just find fault in every action, I would just find irritation in every word of concern, I wasn’t myself. This is when I knew I had to stop it.
I just didn’t know how.
One fine sunny day I was returning from having breakfast when I felt a calling. For a moment I could swear it was the mountain speaking. I left the course I was taking and just went to the top of the mountain. The wind hit my face hard and at the same time I could feel it soothing my heart. For the first time in a long time I was at peace.
How it eludes us.
How it plays with our hearts.
The next day I did the same thing. The next day I did the same thing too.
It was after a while I wrote my first poem and it went like this.
Is all for your self
To venture out
With your inner self
All I do is just to stare
To have the beauty in my heart bare
Whoever told staring was hopeless
Against beauty matchless
The glorious sun did shine
It’s penetrating gaze all mine
And the silent moon did speak
With me and the peak
The peak like a stone
Stood all alone
Ripped up, by us all
In its own solitary hall
As I march to join it
I know my life’s lit
To find a peace so profound
Its every meaning escapes sound
Solitude at night
Shines so bright
It takes me to a distant land
To give me a friend’s hand.
The fair breeze blew
My boundless joy flew
I cried out in sheer delight
As I took the timeless flight
I landed by the stream
To see white silvery cream
Joy flowed there like a treasure
Its meaning never measured
There I met a maiden fair
Beauty flowed in her every hair
In her eyes, I saw an enigmatic pool.
Where fire burnt cool
Each day our friendship grew
Alas! Its meaning understood to few
Her every sight moved me
Nevertheless I thank thee
The maiden was my heart, my very own
Bound with joy in my gown
Your hearts your greatest gift
In joy and sorrow you together drift
Solitude benevolently did shower
Joys of immortal flower
This large entire creation
Is beauty’s perfect manifestation.
And this is how nature healed me. Maybe if you are struggling with something, maybe if things aren’t right its time you connect to nature, its time you connect with yourself.
