I Have Understood…

Relationships

 

I have understood
The value of each tear
The pain of every reprimand
The depth of every sigh
Which deepens a relationship.

I have understood
The care of each moment
The delight of growing wiser
The sharing of those secrets
Leads to bonding of emotions

I have understood
The desire of birds to fly
The pride of perching high
The pain of separation
The joy of reunion

I wish I could also understand
Why relationships sour
Why friends turn hostile
Why emotions die
Why efforts to save them prove futile?

I know the day is not far
I know I have to explore more
Yes! I can see the mist retreating
My wisdom tooth is also almost upbeat
The weary wait is over and I retreat

My emotions have carried me too far
Its time to emerge from those caverns
And share what I have learnt…
Please wait!

Living Again

 

Living Again

I rise again from the valley of death
The valley you pushed me into
The valley I reject…
Its darkness had blinded me.

I don’t want to mourn for
The blessings that I have lost
I refuse to crumble under them
Within me, I can hear a loud protest.

Memories don’t make me smile
They offer no solace now
I have buried them in the valley of death
Anger and apathy is what I carried.

They too diluted with time
I am seeking new vistas
I am focused now
Approbations no longer allure me.

I seek the company of those
Who can guide me, escort me,
Towards the path of enlightenment,
Of forgiveness, of acceptance, of eternal peace.
