To remember… #MondayMusings


I found this poem one day, searching for something else on Google. I found it inspiring. I mentioned it in a post I wrote a few weeks back too. Silence speaks a lot more than words they say. I agree. But when people use words scathingly, they pierce into us like needles, without giving us a chance to deflect them. They judge us without knowing what we are going through. For some, that weight may be because of a problem we are trying to solve. The world created by books, the one they feel is unnecessary, may be our solace.

When too many voices begin to tell us what we are not, at times it overwhelms our inner voice that tells us who we are. The books we read, the laughter that rushes into someone else’s heart and makes them laugh too, the comfort of a pillow that we hug as we sleep, or the love from a pair of tiny hands that hug us even when we don’t need.

I think it is time we remembered.

Join #MondayMusings with Everyday Gyaan with your own musing this week. I’m linking this musing there.

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.

  1. Absolutely loved the poem.We are the books we read ,the thoughts we think ,the places we travel .That’s so beautiful. I may borrow the poem.

  2. This poem is really speaking to me! Infact taken a screenshot & sending it to my friends!
    We are what we think we are!

  3. The most important thing, I am thankful for after connecting with the bookish and the blogging world, is that the people speak a different language here filled of positivity, upliftment, self-belief so much unlike the people who surround us in the real world. The poem is wonderful. A reminder like this of who we are every now and then never hurts πŸ™‚
