You are a book,
An untitled story,
The beginnings and endings,
They write it for themselves,
They make their way,
Piercing into your lives,
Exploiting the truth,
Faking the lies,
Broken trust and false promises,
Unexpected expectations and rustling good-byes,
Chapter after chapter,
The possibilities to realize your dreams,
Learning from the past,
Making present an inspiration,
To seek a brighter tomorrow,
And the book continues,
Good and bad times,
Protagonists and antagonists,
Friends and foes,
Love and light,
Arguments and fights,
Brand new beginnings,
Day after day,
Chapter after chapter,
Light after dark,
Misery after bliss,
The vicious cycle continues,
The combination of peace and conflict,
Accumulated loads of ambiguity,
But what are you living for?
What is the purpose of this ongoing war?
Why do you yearn for more and more?
The answers to your questions,
They demand years and wisdom,
For you can resolve this mystery,
With a journey of self-discovery.
Book of Life
You are a book,
Really liked it! 🙂
As they say we are the Author of our life, which is a book in itself.
I remember I wrote a poem relating myself with a book. ‘A Leaden Book’.
I would love to read it if you put up the link of your poem, Kritika:))
Here it is. 🙂
This is really thoughtful! It is a mystery why these vicious cycles are so hard for us to control as individuals. Self-discovery is certainly the most beneficial journey. I think most of these troubles exist because we focus too much on others.
I agree that most of the troubles are uninvited because we are busy not being busy in our own life but others. However, maybe that’s one of the many consequences of being a human.
Very nicely written, Naima. I completely agree that the wisdom required to answer all our questions comes only with time. All our lives are beautifully summed up in these few lines. 🙂
Indeed — life is a little complicated to comprehend but by living it, we begin a journey to answer the questions with our experiences and suddenly living is not as difficult as we thought :))
So true! And with people like you sharing your experiences and thoughts, the journey becomes easier 😉
The same for you, Prateek. Thank you for sharing your journey with us.
It is a pleasure for me to be a part of global unison, Naima 😉
Life is like in the movie – make your own story, begins it, face it, experiencing it and nows how to end it. 🙂
Movie or book — the idea is the same, you’ve got to face the story you create :))
This is beautiful….And in life…there is no skipping chapters or reading ahead.
Exactly — nothing like reading the ending before completing the book to quench your curiosity.
Beautifully written Naima!! We play all kinds of roles in our life depending on the situations.. We can just make sure that the pages left to be written are sufficient enough to take us where we want to or have the desire to go. Some ‘Abrupt endings’ may intervene but we should work on it on a regular basis,on each page of our untitled book 🙂
You elaborated quite well on the concept of self-discovery. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Darshith.
Always welcome Naima !! 🙂 On the path of self-discovery 😉
Lots to ponder here…
And lots to ponder in life.. :))
*Hugs right back*
You presented the fundamental question of our existence beautifully!
It does require loads of wisdom and time to actually solve the mystery.
Indeed it does — a lifetime.
Thank you for stoping by Hargun and sharing your thoughts with me. It’s greatly appreciated.
Beautifully written, Naima. 🙂
Thank you, Celestine :))
Beautiful portrayal of life’s reality. Yet looking at life from a different perspective it can be joyful if only we relax our mind and let go.
Regards and cheers 🙂
I agree — life is a blend of joys and sorrows. There is not only one side to embrace.
Deep thoughts, beautiful.!
Our life is indeed like a book, to know the complete story, we need to read it till the end.! 🙂
Yeah, there is no skipping pages and peeping into the last chapter.
This is so good, Naima! Very indpiring and it made me actually think of what I was “yearning for more and more.” So glad I read this.
Much love 💓
I am happy this could help you, Angela. I hope you are doing fine.
I absolutely love this!
I am pleased that you liked it.
I LOVE IT, Good job 🙂
Thank you :))
I was like I haven’t read any blog of Naima and yes here you treat with such a stupendous blog.The way you described our whole life with such simple words yet meaningful! *hurray* ..
I hope we could learn from all our intentional or unintentional miseries with this healing power of self discovery 🙂
Indeed — with every chapter of our book revealed one day at a time, it should be our duty to learn from our mistakes to ensure a way to live a life we want. Thank you for you wonderful comment as always — so warm and welcoming.
