DEEP WITHIN


Today, I want to ask myself
What is it, that makes me weak?
It is a monotonous day round
Or the fear I abound,
The fear of being a loser-
The fear of loosing friends-
The fear of letting the hopes down
The fear of not owing the winning crown

The fear which lets me down
Is the fear of being MYSELF

My feelings are strong & deep within
Which lay unscrambled & akin
They ask me to let them out,
Share them & clear the doubt.
Then I make a promise to find,
Someone who will listen to my mind,
Someone who will take me up,
Someone who will share the cup
Someone who will make me proud
& make me feel on the 9th cloud,
Someone who will say a word
& will complete my incomplete WORLD.

    A very familiar anxiety of a young mind
    Very well depicted within the frame of words
    Its really rare to look within at this age
    Consolation that comes from within is a great healer
    No other medicine has that much power.

    Nicely you have shared the thoughts deep within.

    Thanks for this good read. (Report) Reply

    Priya,
    Some human frailties are common amongst us....and covers everyone, young and the very old (like me) .So relax, this feeling too shall pass. God bless.

    Cheers.

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
