At The Crossroads

Lo! When I stand here realising, that I am alone at a cross road,
Couldn’t finish a melody I started,
Somewhere half the way I missed a note,
I am done believing, in all, except myself,
Now I have got to find the road ahead, on my own.   IMG-20180412-WA0000.jpg

There is a song inside me, a wishful dream,
Everytime, I am hurt, I caved in,
But not this time, this time I want to stay strong,
They say, all you got to do is dream,
But I say this time this dream has to come true.


For, it is me being stubborn here,
That I will no longer take it, No! Not anymore,
One more time I try to bend for someone,
I am sure it will break me from inside,
Making me irreparable, beyond any recognition.   IMG-20180412-WA0003

Do I want that for me?, No I wouldn’t wish it for anyone,
Be it a friend, or be it a foe, no never I wish them this,
The things I had to go through, all the brunt I took,
Leaving a permanent scar in my memories and mind,
I struggled to cope up with my past even living in the present.

IMG-20180412-WA0005Life’s unfairness continued, but somehow I too thrived,
Wishing everything would change as if waking up from a dream,
None so faithful like the hurt and pain,
Followed me like a shadow, along with me,
I still smiled outside even though, I bleed inside.           IMG-20180412-WA0006Wish I knew how to sail across to the land,
Without the boat, without the oars, without any lifeguards,
I still struggle with the inside of myself,
But overcoming this, is the need of the hour,
As I stand alone at this life’s crossroads.

Uhmm! What do I say abt myself. Love to read, write, watch tons of movies and loves music. Educated enough to enlighten a few things to a few some who shows the interest to listen. This is me in a nutshell. Will let out little by little, like the cat out of the bag. Ok I think it's time to let out one more passion of mine, which I as much love as writing, and that is cooking. Trying out different new recipies with a slight variation added of mine makes my culinary skills a little adventurous cuisine.

  1. What’s troubling you Anamika? Life is full of challenges all the way for everyone. But then all depends how you take it and overcome it. In the Bible there’s an incident where the disciples of Jesus was facing a very rough sea and they thought they would be drowned. But Jesus was sleeping at the stern of the boat. They woke up Jesus asking ” Master, are you not bothered that we are going to be drowned? Don’t you have any concern for our lives?” Jesus then stood up and said to the sea waves ” be still ” and the sea was calmed. Jesus then told his disciples:” do not be men of little faith. ” I wanted to remind you is that often we forget the fact that Jesus is there with us in the boat when we are facing the rough sea. We try to manage things on our own and may fail. But, in your times of trouble, turn to Jesus. He is there with you in your boat ready to help you. God bless you.

    1. Thank you for the soothing words, glad to have people like you to soothe down the pain. Some times irrespective of knowing there is a helping hand always near you, the depressive soul just comsumes you. That time neither faith nor belief helps. But don’t worry, after a while I manage to come out too. Thank you for the concern and the love you shower.
