Poem #1 – Connection

Hello everyone!
Today’s post is a poem I wrote earlier this year. It explores how the connection with another can impact one’s strength and persona. I will briefly analyse the poem from the perspective with which I wrote it after posting the poem. Please feel free to interpret the poem from your own perspective, and do let me know your views!
CONNECTION
Ere connections break                                                                                                                             Bliss prevails within.                                                                                                                                 Unknowing of its identity,                                                                                                                     Mind perceives reality.
Reality being but bliss,                                                                                                                              Yet truth itself.                                                                                                                                            Bliss is mere joy,                                                                                                                                        Joy of connection.
The bonds begin to fray,                                                                                                                         The bliss to erode.                                                                                                                                     Joy fades with gradualness,                                                                                                                     Announcing only emptiness.
Despair of loss,                                                                                                                                           Sinks within.                                                                                                                                               Quest for strength,                                                                                                                                     Lives on within.
No longer light,                                                                                                                                           The world is dusk.                                                                                                                                     Darkness is yet,                                                                                                                                         A threat to be.
 The poem explores one sequence of events after a connection breaks. In this particular sequence, the joy that connection entails is shattered. The bliss starts fading, and one does not realise this until it has vanished altogether. However, the absenteeism of the other person has not dampened the protagonist’s views of reality. The latter, despite having lost the cherished connection, continues to perceive reality as positive. Therefore, the despair of loss is inevitable, but it sinks, while the desire to find strength rises to the fore. The world has taken on an aura of dusk, caused by the break of the connection. However, the quest for strength provides the sliver of light which is not lost. Therefore, darkness has not manifested itself as a daunting threat to life.

That was the brief overview of the poem. Please do leave your feedback and feel free to interpret this poem differently. I will be posting more poems in the future, along with other issues. Have a nice week!

See you soon,

Why Worry?

“Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but gets you nowhere” – Unknown

There is no point in worrying about what the future holds. It can be daunting, but that is not reason enough to ruin the present. One very c0mmon phenomenon among most aspirants is losing sleep due to worry. Not only does this hamper one’s day to day lifestyle, but also takes an immense toll on one’s mental health. Constant stress and worry causes a person to continuously think of the source of that worry, thus adding to his mental fragility. Short temper, fear, insecurity, worthlessness, lethargy, and even lack of/excess consumption of food are among the several consequences of worry.

Worry is the surest method of dampening any chances one has of success. By constantly thinking of the source of worry, the vibrations released in the body are of the most negative kind. They can, and probably will manifest themselves in either physical, or emotional ways.

Physically, one’s health may be affected. However,the most dangerous consequence worrying can possibly have is mental. Depending on the level of stress, one’s memory can be affected. This is especially harmful, and pertinent in the case of students. A common experience is the inability to recall specific information within seconds, as opposed to when at ease. The reason for this is simple: stress. Without the element of stress, life would embody a carefree nature, which, without being deprived of ambition, would be conducive to the development of one’s personality.

Worry has never benefitted one, and shall never do so either. Worry is merely a figment of one’s imagination, nurtured by him, and vulnerable to his will. The power to eradicate it lies within.
