Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 63

Prompt

Here is an intriguing picture shared by Harvey Kraft on LinkedIn.

The picture by itself can tell a thousand stories. But I am increasing the complexity a little. Here is a paragraph from another source.

So what exactly happened here? A woman felt powerless because she was unable to let go of a story she was holding onto which made her a victim. Even though she no longer saw this man, her former lover, she carried him within, and over and over again inside was keeping this version of the story alive.

TILL DEATH DO US APART

It seems there is no strength left in me.

I feel completely exhausted.

I can’t go on like this, I want to quit.

It has happened several times in my life.

Shamefull I accept that I had wanted to quit every time I felt  exhauseted

Everytime my conscience nudged me

‘How could you quit, there is so much to do, everyone depends on you?’

I was young then so summoned my willpower and got up every time. 

But now with age catching up, it seems an uphill task. 

I’m lying on the floor, helpless, hoping to go…There comes an extending hand for help, 

How could you be so desperate? Didn’t you promise, ‘ till death do us apart’?

Oh yes, I remembered. 

Indeed how could I leave him in the middle of our journey?

He was always there to support me, never grumbled, criticized or belittled me. 

What I was complaining about?

With a feeling of guilt, I grab the extended hand thankfully.

Indeed the show must go on ’till death do us apart.’

Didn’t once I advised everyone that’

When there is unrest or apprehension
When there is, in life a lot of tension
Take a break and retrospect.
When you overworked and very tired
When you are stuck in an old routine
Take a break and get good rest.
When dissatisfaction, and no fun in life
You think life is taking you for a ride
Take a break and meditate.

हवा में सीलापन सा क्यों है कहीं पे कोई रोया है क्या?

महलों में सब सुविधा पाकर कहीं कोई तो   हँस  ना पाए,

जूठन पाकर झोपड़ीवाला  ख़ुशी के मारे  रोया है क्या?

दिन भर खूब मजूरी की पर  शाम को खाना  घर न आया

बिलख बिलख कर रोते कोई  भूख का मारा  सोया है क्या ?

लालच में वृक्ष काट लिए, बीज कभी भी बोये नहीं

 अब मौसम का रुख देखकर कहीं पर कोई रोया है  क्या?

बेटियां कितनी बलि चढ़ा  दी ,एक बेटे  के लालच में ,

आज उसी बेटी की खातिर किसीका का दिल कहीं  रोया है क्या?

सागर से मिलने वाली  नदियों का जल जब  सूख  गया,

आस लगा कर बैठा सागर,बिलख बिलख कर रोया है क्या?

पापों का लेखा जोखा कर कहीं कोई ग़मगीन हुआ क्या

कहीं कोई शैतान ठिठक कर हँसते हँसते रोया है क्या?

यूं तो कारण बहुत मिले , रोज़ रोज़ हँसने  गाने के

बहलाने को चेहरा छिपाकर, बार बार मुंह धोया है क्या

हवा में सीलापन सा क्यों है ?कही पे कोई रोया है क्या?

~इंदिरा

Translation in English

why breeze is so damp, has someone somewhere cried

some never smile even when they get all the comforts of the world

All the comforts at door, can’t make some smile

Has some poor laughed with a little more than expectation

has someone ever cried regretting no seed was ever sown

those who sacrificed girl fetus to get one son

has some mother ever shed tears remembering that girl

has some mother ever shed tears remembering that girl

has sea sometimes cried and longed for them

when the river water could not reach sea ’cause they dried with our negligence

has sea sometimes cried and longed for them
why breeze is so damp, has someone somewhere cried

Weekend Writing Prompt #61 – Quarantine

Can

Someone

help me

find a way

to put

some files in my mind

to 

Quarantine

which do not let me 

forgive and forget

past

allow me to 

live in the present

making my and others life

difficult

so

they cannot

corrupt my mind to

take control

over my brain

with its evil design

to disrupt

my present

allow me

to

live in peace

and enjoy

life

challenge 42

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 42 

 

Time

the most  intriguing part of life

the mute spectator

still being held for 

whatever happens to us.

time is running slow

time is flying by

time is bad

time is good

time to born 

time to die

time, the poor fellow is

always held responsible 

ups and downs

in one’s life

but the beauty of time lies not in

giving too much of your time, or

giving less of your time

but

making a balance

on how you divide, manage and balance your time

otherwise

it can

can make or break your life

 

Nurturing Thursday- Live in the moment

Posted on

https://beccagivens.wordpress.com/2018/06/14/nurturing-thurs-attitude

We start to live in our thoughts and all the joy that can only be experienced in this moment become unavailable to us. ~ Sadia Saeed

walk when you walk

talk when you talk

listen when you listen

read when you read

eat when you eat

savor the taste

the list is too long

so whenever your mind

roams away from

whatever you were doing

just breath

and bring it back

to this very moment
