I know



I know the yearning feelings of you.

I know your hunger to feel heard,

Wishing your dreams would come true,

To take flight and feel free as a bird.


I know the longings of your heart,

I know how years may seem wasted,

You ache to make a fresh start

Instead of new words, cut and pasted.


I know in choices you feel trapped.

I know loneliness, when youโ€™re not alone,

When it seems your life is already mapped

And dark nights feeling on your own.


I know how desperately you seek the light

I know how conflicting it is, searching for more!

As sun steadily rises, new hope is closer in sight!

Our eyes vigilantly waiting for a new opening door.


Iโ€™ve learnt that choices, I alone must make.

Not so easy when roads fork, only one I must take!

  1. Yes, difficult / important decisions are hard to take. I’m often conflicted between my different sides and it’s big quandary. I am a bit of a worrier and often stay awake playing out various scenarios in my head. But good luck with your choices! Be intelligent, be bold!

    1. Thank you for your reflections with me Kunal.I actually posted this last year but I find it still relevant for different reasons. Yes, it needs me to be intelligent and bold in my choices which is a bit difficult in a world of uncertainty. But I am taking steps to try and get out of the lull I’m feeling.
      As for the different sides – I know that well.Take care and enjoy the rest of your day!

    1. Thank you Ron, you remind me of what I sometimes take for granted. I’d like to believe that I write with empathy but sometimes we all do go through similar experiences. ๐Ÿ˜€
