“Falling, You’re Pressing Your Fingers Against The Sky” | Prompt #6

Falling! This word has always been used to show something which is negative in its behaviour, something which is degrading, going down, but let me tell you this is the only word which has the most beautiful impact on my entire life.

I can remember the days of my school when due to lack of money, my parents put me in a semi-government Hindi medium school, a shy guy who’d sit next to anyone in the middle or corner row, who had no good image of anything.

Not even in sports, reading a paragraph in an open class, not even in academics, not even in music. I was just a mediocre in everything. A person who didn’t even know how to speak to anyone from English medium students of the same standard. Frightened, and always lacking with confidence.

That was the day and here is today, I’ve changed myself completely from falling from there to here. I worked my ass off to come where I am today, I’ve learnt the depth of English, merely a language but better than those who used to dominate me. I’ve been a good articulator, who can speak and entertain tens and hundreds of people with his confidence and there are so many incidences like those.

The recent one is what I can remember when, in the month of March-2020 I was thrown out of my company from one branch to another due to lack of performance. I was breaking down, falling in place and I thought of quitting. But here’s the catch, by the grace of Krishna, just after one year, in the same month of March-2021, here I am awarded with Number 1 Executive salesperson in the entire organisation.

My struggles have always been my motivators. And I never forget the people who are with me in those difficult times. For me, they mean a lot. Because I surely know that I may end up falling today, but tomorrow I’ll bounce back with double power, and the moment I come back again, I’m always there for my loved ones in all the condition.

In today Prompt #6, “Falling, you’re pressing your fingers against the sky” I’ll be sharing my little poem of how I’d never give up little fallings:

You may see me struggle,
Working on my own,
Putting myself all
It’s easy to stop me,
But you won’t see me fall.

Regardless if I’m capable or not,
I’m gonna show, how to fight till end
I may fall once, but
I’ll stand again tall.

Everyone says life is tough,
I used to believe that too
I was challenged with setbacks
And that’s how I learned what to do.

Time gets hard, people leave you,
Perhaps, you become silent too,
But with the help of self-introspection
You overcome all the breakthrough.

Ever since I’ve started to wear a bigger smile,
Even when I feel as if I want to cry.
I’m going to fight till the end,
Even if I am destined to die.

There will be days, months, and years
Where you’d see me struggle through it all.
You may see me failing, at times,
But you’d never see me lose it all.

  3. Its always the struggle which defines a person. If we get things easily we might not even value it. There is nothing sweeter than the happiness you get when you achieve your dreams through your hard work.

    Its very difficult to acknowledge the shortcomings within us. But you didn’t only acknowledge that you also had the confidence to overcome all that. Its takes a lot of strength. Keep shining strong Sumit.

    1. I completely agree with that. Anyone who gets million dollars in the account, would go crazy to take care of it. But the one who’s strived hard to earn them will always be assured of utilising it properly.

      Thank you for your encouraging words, Yeshu. It wouldn’t have been possible without the help and blessings of a lot of people. People from the blogging world, are its part too.

    1. Your words are so huge to take right now. I’m really obliged to read that, Nawazish.

      I was never a person who’d take challenges as the way I take them now. Earlier, just like others, I used to think why is his happening to me.

      But now, as I can see through things, know that it’s not happening to me, but FOR me, for my betterment.

      I’m reaching somewhere with this change which is required for me, which is guided by the Divine, by Krishna.

      And that’s how I become assured of the journey.

    1. Break the legs! It has a lot of memories ever since so many years, Chandu.

      I’m glad that I could make you feel charged up because that’s what I have been trying to do for years. You were not sure of many things earlier, but here you are doing the best of the works. I’m so proud of you for that.

      And thank you for loving this piece too.
