Feelings and Reality

I need to remind myself everyday that what I’m feeling is not what’s happening. What’s happening is probably very small and my feelings are huge. What’s happening is like the broken patch on the wall and what I’m feeling is, perhaps, like the vines. When I let the feelings recede, I will see the broken patch clearly and deal with it. And the feelings will recede only if I live through them.


It’s so hard to sit by yourself and do nothing. The noise in your head is so loud, everyone around you is racing to somewhere and there is a definition of success. Can you listen to your own voice over the noise? Why are you sitting? Wouldn’t you be left behind? Don’t you need more money? Does everyone think that you are slacking? I wish we all knew how to sit by ourselves, doing nothing, at times. And still not worry about the race. And not think about money and success. I wish we all knew how to find peace, by ourselves.


When it snows, I want to be somewhere warm

When it’s hot, I want to be somewhere cooler.

When I’m stuck, I just want to walk

When I walk ahead, I keep looking back.

When I’m in the sun, I long for a canopy

When I’m in shade, I long for some warmth.

When I’m alone, I long for company

When I have company, I want to be with me.

When I have silence, I long for a sound

When I have noise, I long for some quiet.

I live here, nor there

I just live in my longing.

I spend every day,

Neither here nor there.
