Some from my professional diary, some from my heart, some from my perspective, some from good reads, some from observation, some from life's stories, some from imagination, some from sweet nothings of life...
(Honouring the #worldpoetryday today, 21st March...)
I was trying to articulate my thoughts...
As I was trying to untie the creative knots,
The words that juggled inside me,
Simply wanted to flow out & be free...
Pop, they wanted to come out!
The way they are, unpolished & uncut...
They didn't bother about the appropriate time,
They didn't care for the rhyme.
All they wanted was an outlet to ooze out,
All they wanted was joy of expression & shout.
They told me not to hold back, not to fear,
But to go out & live my dream so dear...
They told me that this life is for once,
So why wait for the right time; just dance?!
"Go for it", they screamed inside me.
Unless you take a step, how will you be free?!
Then I asked myself,"Who is holding me back?"
"I don't find anyone but myself"...
"Is there anything that I lack?"
"Not really, I have it all"....
"More than I can recall".
Over time I let fears overpower me,
I let inaction define me;
I let a default life take me through,
I forgot when I last challenged myself & outgrew...
"Yes, it was me,only me!"
"I screamed to myself with joy & glee."
For I realized who that captive is,
For I realized who is the one who can recreate the magic within.
As I stood in front of the mirror,
Tears of joy trickled down & I opened the locked door...
A door to immense possibility, creation & growth,
Yes, I was holding myself & that's the truth.
But, not anymore...
Finally I let it flow, I let it out pour.
A life of fulfillment & fullest expression,
I let myself fly & soar high,
And I do it with joy & passion...
