In your dreams!

Written as part of A Week for Writing, which offers the theme ‘In your Dreams’, Prompt Nights which offers the theme ‘Karma’ and Midweek Motif, which offers the theme ‘Courage’ as inspiration for a post. Also shared with The Tuesday Platform.


In your dreams!

how easy it is to brush off,
something you haven’t seen,
how easy it is to just scoff
somewhere you haven’t been,
something you haven’t seen;
push away my hopes to be
somewhere you haven’t been,
that means so much to me.

push away my hopes to be
standing out from the crowd,
that means so much to me;
I’ll get there and feel proud,
standing out from the crowd,
unafraid to not be the same,
I’ll get there and feel proud,
for how I played this game.

unafraid to not be the same,
I’ll not wish the same for you,
for how I played this game,
only few have courage to do;
I’ll not wish the same for you,
maybe you’ll know some day,
only few have courage to do…
if karma does have its way.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

    • Yes. It doesn’t help when the first thing we hear when we articulate that yearning is something that is demotivating.

      It’s a time we need to continue believing in ourselves and who we are. πŸ™‚ Thank you, Tulika.

  1. Well said! It’s tough to break free and follow your dreams and goals when people around you are pulling you down. But navigating through this negativity and challenges is real courage.

  2. The first step is easy – it’s the continuing that is hard. We all know the different chick is often pecked to death by the others. Being different and being genuine in that difference is hard. And it is good when we can share that struggle and encourage those different chicks to be themselves and to grow.

    • Yeah, Sreedeep. I think that that uncertainty is because of that disbelief from others. No matter how courageous, hearing those words wavers the confidence at that moment. Glad you liked the poem.
