Spontaniety is Turning Life In to a Poem


Well friends , here is a bit of autobiographical attempt.. hope you will receive it well..

Written for OSI Prompt: Accidental.. Thanks to Rinkly Rimes..


Spontaneity is Turning Life in to a Poem…


Fun and frolic and happiness
And then loss of childhood
Entry in to adolescence
Likes and dislikes
Walk hand in hand
Temporary fame, and then
Mother’s death,
Betrayals by the kin
Deprivation of the rights
A deliberate change to
Unprotected environment
Struggle in the alien land
Sprinkles of love from
A small and sweet family
Demise of a doting old father
Suddenly followed by
Another spurt of
Endless opportunities
For popularity and renewed fame
Recognition at odd hours
And then pain emanating
From the burns gifted by
Arrows of jealousies
Hitting my spirit
Burden of growing
Under a shadow
Heart skips a few beats
Giving a chance to see
My own inner space
Then when comfort returns
Yet another uprooting
Orchestrated by destiny
That introduced new characters
Playing their roles effectively
And then a new place
For better growth
Because a kind heart meets
On the way and shakes hands
Introduction to a space for
Giving and receiving
Absolute freedom of expression
Saplings turning in to lovely trees
Smiles growing on every object
World turning more beautiful
Wow, and then to think ordinary
Taking all this as accidental, no..
Even a couple of accidents

On the way, but then,
How can anything be accidental,
It’s a flow, a constant flow, yes
Moving forward with pain
And happiness as essential parts
Acceptance is a bliss
Yes, God let me flow
And from the deepest corners
Of my heart…where he dwells
His voice loud and clear
He says… keep flowing…

Keep flowing… and I am flowing
Spontaneity is turning life
In to a poem
Or has it always been a poem
In the garb of life…
Well whatever,

It's so very beautiful..

I am sure all this happens – ups and downs- with many a people who walk on this Earth with the pupose of learning evolving, making things better around them, moving forward…accepting… I salute all of them… with humility in my heart..

  1. yes, on hindsight it is so clear that all that happened was not accidental. Was is designed? by whom?

    My post is on similar lines.

    Thoughts well put.

  5. It’s a flow, a constant flow, yes
    Moving forward with pain
    And happiness as essential parts
    Acceptance is a bliss

    Glad to hear those lines RS!!

    It is coming from a very balanced person!!
    Willingness to tolerate difficult or unpleasant situation is hard, but for acceptance and flowing on you deserve a pat!!

  14. Absolutely loved the portion I have quoted below. Yes acceptance is bliss but from where I am looking at it, it appears to be the most difficult part, specially when the source denies the truth, the hard truth that one has to accept. Specially when one wishes with all one's heart, that the truth was not true.

    Congratulations on the beautiful writeup.

  18. Life is the most divinest of flows indeed... your poem is very inspiring, Ramesh... really beautifully written..
    I too am of the opinion that everything that happens, happens for a reason..and that reason is to eventually make us a batter and more experience-enriched individual...

    I really liked and enjoyed your heartfelt poem, my friend.. may this poem (your life) flow with the utmost grace, and may you love every bit of it to the fullest!!

    Lots of love and hugs..

  20. There are no accidents, I am sure. But what is the plan? This question impels me always. I enjoyed your poem.

  21. The questions is do we walk towards our destiny or does destiny comes to us ?/// How much of these ups and downs do we actually control and how much of it just happens?

    You poem set me thinking, quite enjoyed reading it.
