Spoken Words

I feel my creativity being calcified.
When you live a task oriented life,
Your inner child cries.
Hence, when I have free time, I go wild.

Disclaimer: do not attempt to cycle and dance at the same time or if you do, know the consequences. I have recently been into an accident and I am bruised as a result, but I don’t mind.

Deep Diver

Deep Diver
.

People’s heart are like swimming pools. And I want to dive deep.
Solemnly

When they get close to mine

They want shallow land.
So they flea*.

Afraid to jump?
Understandably.
Your heard will crack and that is the end of we.
.
.
Some people do not want you in their divinity pool. Hence why I’m head deep in mine.

Clarity

Clarity
.
.
As the sky clears
Clarity
The heavy dark clouds disperse
Light shines in
Through this constrained humidity
Waiting for thunder, to be set free.
Though when you have clarity
Darkness gets disintegrated
Wet particles dissolve with ease
No need to flood terrains
Clarity absorbs the pain
Turning into one, gestating wisdom at the strike of dawn.

The Praying Mantra

The Praying Mantra
.
.
I forsake to ever spend a minute, a time or a day,
Looking at rear mirrors, the sight paves new way.
Accepting “what is” turns into living, while expectations flake.
Your skin falls off, shell-less, you crawl.
The caterpillar turns to snake.
For new beginnings,
This mantra prays.
.
.
If you don’t believe in God, make your own personal mantra and pray for/to yourself.
Who said caterpillars can only become butterflies?

When a Tree wears Feather

Fluency in languages is no reason to brag.
Do not boast about that fact.
Humans speak internal dialects.
Every communication imparts interpretation. .
.
Learning this lesson. It nearly drove me mad. Being able to understand the words people use does not mean you know what they intend to convey. We all have this rule where we assume we understand. After all, communication could not flow if we had to check what does “love” / “lazy” / “simple”, etc, means with every person we speak with. This assumption has helped ensure the creation and maintenance of our social bonds. It can be quite cathartic to meet someone who speaks your language, when you find yourself in a country that does not speak yours.
Yet, words are not as straightforward as you may think. Plus, we speak through body language, non verbally. Add to it, energetic language… Some people are more sensitive to another’s energy. While others doubt its existence. Sure and the Earth used to flat at one stage. 🤣Plus, the context someone heard “X” word the first time. If someone uses a word with a specific connotation and tone, that tends to stick on the listener.

Well, this was a sore lesson for me. I knew I was not understood. But Oh how I wish I could learn their dialect.That is why I overstayed. This is why I am decoding my own dictionary, now. There is no Google translator in this case.
*I found this bony structure when I was on my errands. It looks like an alien frog.

Delete this as you walk on. It is starting to work,
It does not matter anymore.
Erasing connections, no reply button,
Out of service, you are holy.

May the gorge swallow you all.
Into the serpent, may you be devoured.
What was once life, now, no more.
No need to even rhyme, sipped words hollow.
No ripples on your skin. Just autophagy.
This transformation has been complete.
Finally, here you are, an evaporated soul without a heart.

Riding Life
.
.
The ride that was not chosen.
Perhaps we do so, at the starting line.
For we ought to get impulse
If we want to soar high.
And for every high, the fall comes following,
The jump propels, it is a byproduct.
Of further growth, that goes by, nudging.

However, if you exit that cargo,
Defeated and tired of being low,
That is when you stop the spin.
Though you have stalled, your motivation to live.
Becoming an invisible bystander, watching others on their trip.
