I know it’s been a while since I shared something on contemplation. I kind of got MIA right after my last post where I planned to raise women empowerment through this platform. Well, I have been pretty much occupied with things, so just couldn’t make to come here and share my work. Anyways, after a long break of three months, I felt like bringing something back for all you guys. Poetry which I hope transcends the message in a way to everyone who has been a very faithful part of contemplation, also the ones who will be joining us in the coming future. So without further ado, let’s begin the story…
I sat by my window in my new place
Staring at the disconcerting clouds
Changing their shapes
From ghostly images to
Switching places to adjusting frames.
I watched the trees waving at me from a distant shadow of light.
As if asking me how are you?
I waved back, replied I am good; and smiled.
When a tear rolled down my cheeks,
My friends afar could see.
So, they asked me again
How are you?
This time I couldn’t lie
And outburst a cry.
Then I replied…
I am alive
But not living;
But not happy;
I am breathing
But feel suffocated all the time…
It is depressing to see how alluring the weather is outside,
How strong the wind is blowing all night;
Yet, I am sitting inside a locked cage,
Trying to see through a blurred image
Dreaming how it would feel if I was out there
And they replied back….
It is all a web of perceptions my dear
Some find this outside scene pleasing
while others are frightened,
And much more.
Life is beautiful every day in every way.
Still, we are always looking towards at other’s doors.
Then they told me the most comforting words of life…
If you wanna live and be happy again?
Try to make peace with your past,
love your present,
and work hard to build your future;
So, one day you don’t have to look at their home
Through your tiny room’s window
envying their life in your brain’s hoarding storm,
Or stare at me, wishing what if,
you could be out there in the big free sky?
You are born free.
You can dream free.
You can live free.
Just let go of all the worries and negative thoughts, that
you are holding in your mind;
let go of the things, that
are keeping you from living your life.
Let it all go.
Now, close your eyes,
Breath in tight,
and say it out loud…
“I AM FREE”
“I FEEL FREE”
And, you will be free.
