Prompt #19 | Change

It started with a mid night talk,

Knowingly going on the unknown road.

The true grasp of my identity

Could not digest for what was told.

Unable. Resistible. Hard rock heart.

The present moment wasn’t allowing me

To accept it for everything I heard

I was blocked.

Numb, and disconnected

from the outer world.

Regardless of who’s telling me what,

I didn’t let it in inside me,

In the depth of my heart.

It was truth which sting my egoistic approach,

And it hurt me till I feel near to death.

Death of my old being.

You brought me back to the life of love.

Sunrise. Sunshine. Smiles.

I accepted it all.

I accepted the flaw and let you come inside,

You healed me to see myself

again with an open eye.

You brought me back to the basic,

You dragged me to the core of life.


So this prompt was not meant to be a part of my National Poetry Writing Month challenge but somehow I could not control myself for writing about it. Change. I’m a person who’s not much into changing things. I like to keep things in a routine way. Very much secured and satisfied with limited things but…

But then, it’s not always good to be constant, after all, change is the only constant, and we have to accept that, if we don’t we loose the game.

I’m grateful to someone who tried to make me come out of my zone where a lot of things were exposed to me, about my own self. About love, passion, art, health, and life.

I wish to be grateful for making me understand a few things. For inspiring me to put my words in a way where I could see myself as a third person. So I wish to tell you, my friend for the help, a thank you with a warm hug.

If you want to listen to the recital of this poem then you can on my Instagram IGTV.
