Let The Stars Heal You

A picture of stars, with a motivational poem in it.

Broken road, and a dark path ahead,

No sense of direction, no sense where these roads are headed!

Looking back, these days seemed like a choice that was unwise,

For he knew, it was filled with lies;

All that gave him was hate and misery,

And caused him pain, that couldn’t be healed even with therapy.

Tough it was, living with hypocrites,

Tough it was, being surrounded by ungrateful cynics!

Those difficult days, drained him of hope,

And that’s when he realized his life headed towards a downward slope.

While the mind of his were still on those thoughts,

He kept driving on the mysterious path.

Looking back, he thought, he would eventually find something good,

Alas! All he could remember are those awful memories,

As there were some days, he did end up living in the streets!

Like many he did sacrifice his life, money and career,

But his only mistake, he did it on someone he thought would end up becoming his future.

It took long time for the wound to be sealed,

But he does know, if dug, it could bleed.

Like many, he did, want to give up,

So, he decided to live his final night in a grand way,

And he went to the bar, to have what he thought would be his last drink,

What he was unaware of how life changes in a moment of a blink,

And there she was,

Courage he had to speak up, for he thought this night would be his last,

The entire night may have still remain a blur to him, but these lines, he hasn’t still forgotten,

“Tonight, look up the stars,

And you’d know, there is always light.

Far from you they may be,

But they burn, so you’d clearly see.

Alone, people think they are in this world,

That leaves them scared, so weak that they can’t say another word.

Scars of the past, can hurt you like hell,

It can make your life miserable, like you’re trapped in a well.

But never for once think, that you’re alone,

You can get up on your own!

For there is no one more important than you,

And it is for yourself, in this maze, you have to pass through!

Try not to think for the world, for it is busy in debating on useless controversy,

And sometimes only discuss why the world is in a state of catastrophe.

So, the day you die, don’t think who’d be there to mourn,

For life is about living, so just move on.”

To date, he still reminisces,

Not to the times he collapsed,

But to the times that made him feel alive,

Driving through the unknown path,

Even today, he looks up the stars,

And looks forward on the path that is now clear,

For he knows that things could’ve been worse,

He has realized, there is nothing to gain if all he does is curse.

Although they did not end up together,

This did end up making him stronger,

For now he knew, not everyone stays forever,

He learned that life is a such a journey

Where we meet many, who teach us a thing or two,

And return to the world they came from.

He understood, death isn’t a bad thing after all,

It’s the fear of not living that would end up killing us all.

So why wait for something magical to happen,

Just drive, for the path is always new,

Don’t bother for not everyone has a clue,

Of where they belong,

And that’s what he did.

He walked out and started to drive,

And he looked up to the stars above,

And he said the below words, hoping to keep them in mind when things get tough:

“At times, when you feel low and are filled with stress,

Just look at the stars above, for everyone is in this state of mess,

There will be times when you’d feel broken,

There’d be times when you’d feel dead,

Just remember no one’s alone, it’s just a matter of reaching out,

It’s tough to reach out, so start small,

Work on what you love, let your heart lead you.

Let the light from the stars heal you,

Make sure you capture enough light in you,

For there will be times, when stars won’t be visible too.”

Hope this poem helps you in any way possible. This post is the last for the year 2019. This year has been nothing less than a roller coaster ride. Thank you so much for reading my blog this year, as this year has brought in the most views, with the least posts in the year and that has actually made me feel much better about my writing. Would really hope you keep reading and keep getting inspired from my blog. Hoping and praying 2020 would be a great year. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

Will make sure to post regularly in the upcoming year, until then please like and share this poem, and please do let me know what your thoughts are on this poem!

Passion

Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.

~Robin Williams (Dead Poets Society)

How hard can life be? Is there any way we could make life easier?

I honestly cannot answer those questions, but there’s something that could help us survive along this path we call life.

Passion.

What is passion and why am I writing about it?

Every one would have their own meaning for it, but passion for me, is that fierce emotion that has kept me going for a lot of time.

But does it really matter, in a world where money runs things and we run after money, passion could be forgotten.

You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.
~Robin Williams

There’s this small piece that I wrote, hope it helps!

I’ve been here for so long,
Writing about where we as humans belong.
For a while now, I’ve been singing this song,
Without knowing about the things around.
Naive, I may have been,
But, I was just following my dream.
Spreading the word of passion, spreading the word of love,
Many did try before me, but none of us want to evolve.
Does passion really matter?
I have been asking myself this for some time!
I don’t know why it took too long for me to answer,
For without it, my life here would really have been a disaster!

Everyday, I wake up and start my day,
I only see stories along the way.
I can see people, who are stuck with a routine,
I can see kids enjoying their first day as a teen.
I can see an old couple experiencing a movie, without getting offended,
And I can definitely see the capable ones staying silent.
Why is it, we are suffering this intolerable violence?
It could be physical, it could be mental, lord knows what.
May be, it could be because, we have stopped caring about art.
Can passion change humans?
I still remember, a kid from my school, who danced with only one hand.
His passion definitely brought mine back to life,
And only thing that did bother me was, how much did he have to strive!

I sit down and watch the news,
All I see is bunch of people screaming, just for some views.
Defaming anyone they feel is guilty,
While they just randomly, sip tea and coffee.
Deconstructing rhymes and lines just to find something that is not right,
Well, don’t you read the disclaimer, that it’s a work of fiction, and not every word should be right!
If they do love critiquing, how good would they be in writing?
Amazing I believe, for they can create a fake story, which can destroy a man’s history.
I look around and think,
In this situation, can passion really sustain?
If it doesn’t, the work of many generations would be in vain.
For I can assure that passion can bring the change,
For the voice of it, can reach ears and eyes of even those who aren’t in range.

A blind can feel art. A deaf can feel the music. A dumb can sing.
For there is nothing that can stop the passion within.
It’s like like the engine of the soul,
It’s the only thing that can help one reach their goal.
Getting up is never easy after they are down,
But when one has the passion,
They could easily win that crown.
But in reality, no one would want it,
For they know, they aren’t in for that.
I do say, passion can make every one a better person,
For it did teach me, the most important of lessons,
All you have to do in life, is keep going,
Even when you feel nothing has been moving.

How long has it been since I was away? Five months. That’s been a bit too long now, hasn’t it?

Let’s hope the next post doesn’t take this much time!

Do let me know your thoughts on Passion until then!

You know what music is? God’s little reminder that there’s something else besides us in this universe, harmonic connection between all living beings, everywhere, even the stars.
