//"Gratitude lies in simplicity" they say, hence this... //
I wanted to sing, a song, but too afraid, I was, thinking- Whether or not anyone would hear me sing. They say "Your voice Is too small", and so I Kept it inside, my song; And only I could hear The verses chiming like bells In an abandoned temple, So quondam and lone.
I wanted to write a story, but too afraid, I was, to put it down. For I didn't want People to deride at me For making things up, That's too rare to occur In this reality starved world. So I didn't write, and every word Of my story now became A prophecy I felt bound To fulfill someday.
I wanted to love, This time I did, Though I was afraid; For you don't decide to, But just fall in love or atleast That's what they say. And I gave it my all, maybe- Some more, than what I had. And as happens with all, I was left alone, With nothing but pain and memories, that'd last me; More than a lifetime perhaps.
I didn't want to share, This time yet, they said I should, put them all out. My song, my story, My heart, and then I knew; This isn't just; About me anymore, It's for them, for the love That everyone has suffered For I knew, Even the most puissant of men, Have loved and cried someday..
So I wrote a poem, Then another and on it went. Some days I wrote; About this world, Yet some days about the love I've gained more from than suffered. And I stopped crying some time ago, But my heart still shed tears, On the papers I wrote about our love, even today.
I still hope someday, I could forget it all. "We all hope the same" They said, And I knew it was a lie. This pain is like a wish Already granted, though Never desired.
And everyone writes, Some on paper, Some on the wind, But nobody stops Never will they. This is my song, My story, my poem, Nobody hears from me Yet everybody still writes And forever they will, I know, for this is what Keeps them alive.
If you've read it till the end, here's a small -thank you- note for you- (do bear with me a little more please?!) ______________________________________________
Here's something I want to confess- There're so many people here, everyone writes to express their emotions in the best possible way they can.. I think everyone at one time or the other had this feeling (me included very well) of whether or not someone will relate to what we write, but I've realized when you write from heart, someday..your words will reach them all. Our peace of mind depends on us alone. Now, the most important part in my whole mirakee journey has only been recently, when I met so many wonderful,people! Each of you who reads this- I wish the very best for you, you are a beautiful soul, for everyone who writes has a special blessing from the heavens they say and why not, ofcourse you do! Keep shining and keep writing! I'm grateful to have each of you, who has ever read any of my writes, from the bottom of my heart !!❤️And I mean it .. ! _______________________________________________ #write#julietscorner#ceesreposts@writersnetwork@tejaswini_3@the97_introvert@jias_wand@shaliya@dove_wings@i_m_a_wallflower
