Worry

If there are no hands to wipe our tears of distress
If there is no comforting shoulder to provide us succour
If none is there to say "Hey, its okay!"
Is worrying even meaningful?

Its so true..but then we do feel helpless at times.trying to hold on to invisible strands of rope called hope....all the time wishing that the winds of change shall wipe the tears of our cheeks,heal the scars left deep in our hearts,set the building blocks right..the wish listnever ends..the topmost being the need of a soul mate!

...and a bigger concern being, even if it's meaningful, is it worth worrying, knowing no soothing palliative is nearby?

As Mother teresa quoted,the biggest disease is the feeling of being unwanted.If there is none around to offer a soothing word,there is no point in worrying.
I can't agree more.I very much relate to ur post.

Broken Glass
I cannot but deny
Life is nothing but a farce.
Ignorant I may seem
But deep down You know
Life is not just about roses and sweet cream.

Whither happiness?
Whither my happy soul?
Whither my pristine heart?
Whither my SELF?

Little did i know ur four lines shall open me up...

Do you know what are considered the three most dangerous things in life? (by people who are on a yogic diet and serene countenance)

Curry,
Hurry and
Worry!

Uninterrupted, I write
Fearless and liberated.
I would kiss the ground you walk
For on a journey I embark
All the while using your medium
To do away with tedium......

Time leaves behind
Deep footsteps
Too deep
It looks Ingrained
In the beaches of my life...

Little did I know
All sorrow stems
From the seeds I have sown.........
Little did I know
The existence of "none"
Is nothing but a cosequential harvest,
Of all that I have done...
Little did I know
That future is but a reflection
From distant past stems its definiton.........

Little do you realise
That you have been of great help
For me
To look at myself!

The warmth of the sun,
The quenching waters of the river,
The sweet rustle of the trees,
I have been in Neverland.
But,i am but a bird
And do know
That I have to go....
Thanks for being Mother Earth!

smitha,
if there is none, then I think one has to say "hey, its ok!" to one's self...:)Cuz life doesn't stop...

Subha said...

adengappa,
thanks for stopping by..:)

Subha said...

thennavan,
I had two of those three today: curry (really hot spicy Thai variety)and worry..Guess I am not on the path to Yogic deliverance..:))

Subha said...

RS,
Worrying is a futile activity in itself. Despite knowing that no solution to the actual problem may exist, most of us look for the soothing palliative of comforting words...

Subha said...

Mythili,
welcome here.
PB,
amaam, unga Abirami-oda pesi pesiye office-la time waste panreengalame..Unga boss enakku phone panni sonnaar..:)

I am spellbound by your verbal rhapsody! If indeed I've been instrumental in helping you look at yourself, I am glad..:)

y r u so worried abt worrying.. Forget it

Anonymous said...

May be because there is no one to soothe, there is a better chance for self-healing by asking questions/writing poems such as 'is worrying even meaningful' etc...:).

Zeppelin said...

whoa ! KP, are you reading my mind or somethin ? i was gonna say exactly that man...

subha,
probably the best medicine for worry is calm introspection...which some people prefer to call prayer.. I believe in that.. :)
