Being Me | PoeticMusings

A free verse, inspired by the morning sunlight filtering through, on a cloudy day.

Being Me

These days,

all I do

is just be me,

especially when things are falling apart

and I’m striving to hold my own

in a world that

constantly nudges me to compete

and be like someone else.

 

I strive to be

that channel through whom

life flows,

that path through which

one meets with oneself,

on a day

that could be yours, mine

or anybody else’s.

 

In the midst of confusion,

I seek to be

that silence,

that pursues,

but never gives up

seeking

when answers elude.

 

Trust me, some days,

it’s enough to just ‘be’—

be in the moment,

and march to one’s beat,

with absolutely nothing to prove to the world.

  1. “Trust me, some days,
    It’s enough to just ‘be’—
    be in the moment,
    and march to one’s beat,
    with absolutely nothing to prove to the world.” – Truer words, Esha. It is difficult to be just us, just be in the moment with all the tantrum life subjects us to. You come up with such splendid poetry even while battling life’s shenanigans. That’s you being you I say. <3
