NOT YET A WOMAN

*Found this piece of work in a very old diary*

In the transitional stage of growing up from a girl to a woman,

I am still struggling to get my very own moment.

What is this deep unfathomed sea of emotion in me?

I dive in deep in search of the depth of the deeper meaning in me.

The rules and customs have chained my feet to the ground,

I wait for the stance to make myself proud.

I vow to endure the pain with grace,

Someday I want my light to beckon and ace.

I vow to soar the sky not cry,

I vow to spread my wings not sigh.

Some days I try to accelerate my pace, to get over this phase.

Some days I burn like a firefly with passion,

Rest days I dwell into an unknown state of compassion.

In the on-going process of self acceptance,

I am trying to understand this emerging absence.

Some days I wonder what am I destined to be?

Some days i wonder what the fate has in store for me.

In the transition from going yo from a girl to a woman,

I want to explore, grow, reach the highest peak and be human.

 

 

If-

A truly inspiring poem by Rudyard Kipling titled “If”.

If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS-2

“It is a happiness to wonder; it is a happiness to dream.” – Edgar Allan poe

See good in everything, being happy does not mean you have become perfect. It means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections. Positive thinking evokes more energy, more initiative and more happiness. The first ingredient to happiness is to avoid any kind of negativity related to past, present or future. To be happy, you must be your own sunshine. Happiness is a conscious choice. Happiness can even be found in the most darkest of times, It all depends on your outlook. Wake up every morning with a great desire to live joyfully. Never let the sadness of your past and fear of your future ruin your present. Live in the moment, live life to the fullest. Some pursue happiness others create it. The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts. Your mind is a garden, decorate it. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. Rejoice! 🙂

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted something. “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost is very close to my heart. Various thoughts can be associated with it. I would love to read your interpretation of this poem in the comments. Much love!

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

TIME IS THE BEST HEALER

“Then came the healing time, hearts started to shine, soul felt so fine, oh freeing time it was”                                                                                                                                                                                            -Abherjani

Time is the best answer to hurt. Forgiveness is the cure and above all changing negativity into positivity is the best medicine. Every 24 hours bring with it the opportunity to choose. Time is going to help you, you need to choose to utilize the time to help yourself. Healing is not an overnight process, it is daily cleaning of negative thoughts which reside inside you into positivity. You cannot heal if you refuse to confront yourself. Today will never come again. Be a blessing, be a friend, encourage someone, help someone and spare yourself the negativity. Smile and let everyone know that today you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday. If you carry bricks from your past life to the new one, you will end up building the same house all over again. Healing does not mean the damage will never exist, it means that damage no longer controls your life. Healing will only prevail when you choose to walk away from darkness and move towards the light. Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional. Uplift yourself. Clear your path towards mental stability and let the river of positivity flow. May hope rise within you and you be the best possible version of yourself. REJOICE! Love life.

IT’S JUST A BAD DAY, NOT A BAD LIFE.

“I wanted to live deep and duck out all the narrow of life. To put to rout to all that was not life. And not when i had come to life, discover that i had not lived.”- Henry David

 

You must have experienced those days where nothing feels right. No matter what has happened something good will always come around the corner. Things are meant to change. Positivity is the key. Positive thoughts generate positive feelings and attract positive life experiences. Sometimes it takes an overwhelming breakdown to have an overwhelming breakthrough. Every second you spend upset is a minute of happiness you will never get back. Choose to shine even after all the storms you have been through. Learn from every wrong event or decision, see it as a opportunity to grow. It may have been a bad day but it sure not is a bad life.
