To be Carefree…

Linking this with the Half Marathon at The Blog Chatter, Day 7.

To be Carefree…

too many voices shout,
what next I have to do,
do this, then do that,
and do it all this way too.
the more I listen now,
the less I feel at peace,
looking for one too many,
that I need to please.
no compromises accepted,
each want it their way,
so I choose none, not one,
and peacefully walk away.
no voice to be chained to,
the heart seems carefree,
the less I give a damn,
the happier I seem to be.

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.

    • It isn’t easy, Deepa. Maybe not realistic to think that once can be totally free of care, either. But we can choose to not care for those things that needn’t be cared for. πŸ™‚ Thanks.

    • Yeah, Tarang. It is difficult to be completely free of care. Life throws some our way whether we like it or not. πŸ™‚ But we can choose to cut out some of them. I don’t think that that’s very difficult.

    • Yeah. There are voices that support, and voices that overwhelm our voice. πŸ™‚ I think not giving a damn to the latter is very useful. Thanks Shalini.

    • I agree. Easier said than done, but it can be done for some things. πŸ™‚ Giving a damn is simple. Not giving is more difficult, I feel. Thanks, Geets.

    • Yeah. Those who matter won’t mind if they aren’t pleased all the time. Those who don’t matter, they’d push their thoughts on, and they don’t deserve our peace in return. Thank you, Modern Gypsy.

  1. Good timing, Vinay! I’ve been wanting to care less too. I invest too much emotion in a person and shatter completely when it is not reciprocated even a tiny amount. Maybe it’s my fault, keeping people up high where they don’t deserve to be πŸ™‚ Nice one, as always ! <3

    • Yes. That’s painful too, I agree. πŸ™ I think, at times, we give too much value to the happiness and thoughts of others, that we end up being hurt ourselves. I hope we have that sense to let go then, Sharu. πŸ™‚ Glad you liked it.
