Would you dare to agree with me?

Would you dare to agree with me?

Would you dare to agree with me?

No, I don’t have a dream.
No, there is no aim.
I don’t want to become something yet,
And I don’t want money or fame.
No, I don’t have a dream.
No, there is no goal.
I don’t want to achieve something yet,
And I don’t want more and more.

I don’t make plans for an unpredictable and uncertain tomorrow.
I don’t celebrate hereafter’s joy or grieve hereafter’s sorrow.
I just hope for the best and prepare for the worst,
I work hard and sincerely,
Only to quench my current thirst.

I get anxious and I get tensed.
Although I’m still a child,
There are moments when even I pretend.
I pretend that I’m not ill.
I pretend that I’m not sad.
I pretend that I know what I’m doing and what I will.
I pretend that I’ve recovered from the experiences I’ve had.

Yes, I’m ambitious, but not for success.
I’ll gladly settle for better if not for the best.
If it lets me be at peace,
I’ll accept it with relief.

Barefeet I’d rather walk,
If the path is my own ;
Warm, wild and not forlorn.

I think it’d be easier to leave my footprints in grace,
Than to wear taut and tamed shoes of leathers and lace,
Stitched by the daunting hands of a dominating society.
Would you dare to agree with me?

~I am more than a month late, in fact, it was a rather long January, right?

But still, I cannot put up my first post of 2020 without wishing you all, so here goes:

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPPYY NEWW DECADEEE!

Life has been hectic since late December so my posting schedule is wobbly yet again, sorry!

╮(. ❛ ᴗ ❛.)╭

It has been a real rough start to a new decade for not just mankind, but all the living including our home Earth in general. January has been long, heartbreaking, tiring and devastating to say the least and I’m thankful we’ve all made it to February. We’ve made it this far.

ᕙ( ͡◉ ͜ ʖ ͡◉)ᕗ

As we all continue to fight our own battles against our own demons, I give to you “Would you dare to agree with me?” in hopes of it bringing some comfort and peace to us during our troubled times.

A new year and a new decade will bring with it new ambitions, new opportunities and newfound passion. It’ll birth new dreams for many. But I also want to take a moment to comfort those who are dreamless at the moment.

It is okay to be dreamless at any point in life and it is okay to be happy while being dreamless. It is not possible for us to always conjure up goals as soon as we’re done achieving something we’d planned. It is okay to have buffer time. That is what I hope you take away from this poem.

Just stay healthy, happy and hopeful!

( ꈍᴗꈍ)♡

No new year resolutions, no long term plans. No pre-planned vacation trips and no year-end goals. None of it matters as long as you’re happy in the moment, because then your passion will eventually lead you to your purpose in its own time.

So, I wish for all of you to stay healthy, strong and happy. I wish for you to win your battles against your demons and to emerge with a smile!

Happy Blogging!

Megha 💜

  1. This is a beautiful piece of poetry, Megha! And you have taken on a subject that many may see differently, but your insight and feelings ring true. Sometimes we even get so caught up in our well-planned future, that we miss the joy of the moment. Well written!

  2. Such deep words. Loved it.

    “Yes, I’m ambitious, but not for success.
    I’ll gladly settle for better if not for the best.
    If it lets me be at peace,
    I’ll accept it with relief.”

    My favourite lines. I think success holds different meaning and significance if seen from others’ lenses. And the same is true for you. No need to weigh yourself with others’ perception. Just keep going.

    1. Indeed, success does hold a different meaning to different people.
      Thank you so so much Rajaneesh!

  3. Oh yes, I would dare to agree with you!😊

    Oh God Megha! I can literally swear that nobody but you could so beautifully express this state of being dreamless and of being content in the present!

    Before I start to praise this piece, I’d like to ask you (only if I may) what made you write about this?

    Ohkayy, this was a piece that represents the depth that simplicity can bring. I love the fact that there is no use of an exquisite vocabulary here yet I was so touched! And trust me when I say this, I really was! ❤🌸

    “I get anxious and I get tensed.
    Although I’m still a child,
    There are moments when even I pretend.
    I pretend that I’m not ill.
    I pretend that I’m not sad.
    I pretend that I know what I’m doing and what I will.
    I pretend that I’ve recovered from the experiences I’ve had.”

    This stanza is something I truly relate to and it completely resonated with me the second I read it. There are times when one gets troubled by things, even if they are trivial. And somehow, we’ve got to pretend that we’re okay even if we’re not because sometimes, time does fail to heal.

    “I think it’d be easier to leave my footprints in grace,
    Than to wear taut and tamed shoes of leathers and lace,
    Stitched by the daunting hands of a dominating society.”

    And how truly beautiful is that! ‘taut and tamed shoes of leather and lace’? Are you serious? This is so…… Bold! (if that’s the right word here).

    I can totally feel every word of this piece! I loved it!😍

    This piece is quite simple yet so so very profound!🌸 Loved the read, M!❤

    Keep Writing!🌸

    Lots and lots of love and PANDA HUGS!❤🤗

    1. Hehehehe,
      Thennnkuuuuu so much Riddhima ! 🥺💜

      I was inspired to write this piece when I read a comforting quote I read from one of favourite artists and because I felt a little dreamless a while ago.

      I’m so happy you can see what I was going for!
      I indeed meant it to be simple, because I found the message I wanted to convey had to be relatable more than complex.

      I feel so relieved and so so happy that you could see it and enjoyed! =)

      To see that you could relate to the stanzas here makes me feel that there’s more people who can relate to this piece than just me.

      Your beautiful comment literally lit up my mood ah!
      You truly are a blessing Riddhima.
      Thaaankuuuu yet again! 💜

      *Happily recieves the PANDA HUGS!*
      😊💜
