LOVELY ME

 

Very small, delicate, helpless,

Always crying, making dirty myself

The clothes I wore, the bed I sleep

And all the places I move about

 

Yet all took me, did all helping me

Loved me, touched me, cared me

All the time eager to make me feel good

 

So nice people around me

I started feeling beauty the world

Then I said to myself

 “You are ok, I am not”

 

I was helpless and weak

Unable to move beyond

Highly sensitive and possessive

In a state of imbalance an introvert

 

I wanted to move out of myself

In to the world outside seeking

Exploring being creative, adventurous

Trying to become an extrovert so to say

 

It was thrilling to feel independent

Moving about freely

Knowing the secrets of life

The pains and hidden pleasures

 

Asked many questions, whys

Challenging the age old practices

Made others feel not good

And raise their eye brows on me

 

How could you be this!

You were not taught this!!

What kind of education you got!!!

You are not the one we wanted!!!!

 

And they called me:

“You rebellious ignorant fool”

Then I said to myself

 “I am ok, you are not”

 

Hesitantly I moved on

Not knowing for sure

My purpose was clear though

To become a confident, patient,

Rational, matured, balanced one

 

On my way I learnt

After all, all are like me

Moving in a path to search

Light in darkness-happiness

 

Then I said to myself

“I am ok, you too”

A sense of matured

Balanced View of life

 

I am moving on yet

I am not happy

Find myself not in balance

 

Still in my mind thoughts crop up

Some time “You are ok, I am not”

Yet other time “I am ok, you are not”

In extreme “Neither you nor I am ok

 

But I resist try to force myself

To bring in the thought

“I am ok, you too”

A sense of matured

Balanced View of life

 

But some where in my heart

In my conscience mind

An intuitive thought Spark out

 

Life is every moving situation

Anything that is moving

Can never be in balance

 

All efforts to balance

End up in sheer imbalance

“The wise ones accept life as is, where is basis”

Accepting what life throws our way, without knowing the answer to the question "why?" is hard indeed. This reflects a process of a spirit growing, maturing and learning throughout the trials of life; yet there will always be those moments of doubt that creep into one's soul. Nicely done.

Sorry it took me so long to review this. A great write about moving on. Life throws a lot of hard balls our way, but I guess it's a live and you learn thing. Awesome write. I enjoyed this.

Life is not what we want it to be, it is what it is. It is what we do with it that defines us. Beautiful lesson, and a masterful painting of words.

Thank You

I loved it. I felt like it was describing a contant internal struggle - being who you are or what others want you to be. I can relate. Great poem. Even though English is not your native language- you are doing very well. Wonderful piece of writing.
