Life is a blessing

It’s been quite long when I penned down something. Here it goes, something that has been carved straight from the heart, something that came from a real life experience.

I sit, I look back,
Lost in the lanes of memory track,
Drowning in the waves of reminiscences chain,
A trauma flashes, like lightning does, before heavy rain,
And I see everything going black,
What happened to be spectacular and dazzling,
Suddenly transformed into cloudy, moonless sky darkening,
Nothing does make sense out of that shade,
I still keep looking with eyes wide,
A ray of hope, that might change something,
And I would again be the younger being,
Rightly they say, one has to pay for one wrong done,
Or was it one right that went mistakenly wrong?

I sit, I look back,
Delving into the threads of memory strangling,
I realize each moment is beautiful and a blessing,
That anything can happen in a trice,
And life turns upside down without asking any price,
All beautiful trails changed in a single stroke,
Leaving traumatised, emotionally and mentally broke,

I sit, I fantasize drowning in a reverie,
Looking myself in the mirror of Erised,
I glance my heart’s truest desires carved,
Is it a coincidence mere,
Or really the deepest desire,
Reflection it shows, is nothing special,
All it appears is a mirror typical,
For all I wish is to be the same old me,
Exuberant, cheerful and carefree.

Some say, you understand importance of something only after you loose it. Truth is, you always knew the importance, you just never imagined losing it ever.

A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. When you wake up, take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy. The moment you start acting like life is a blessing, I assure you it will start to feel like one.
