Wounded pride and low self-esteem,
Have turned me into a zombie. 
Living just for the sake of my precious one,
As I am screaming for my liberty. 

My soul is struck in this very body, 
Desperately searching for a way to get salvation. 
How long would I have to torment myself? 
When will I reach my destination? 

I wish to rejuvenate my broken soul, 
And I seek God's Divine Grace. 
May He give me the strength to fulfill all my responsibilities. 
And then take me to His Place. 

Nowadays, I am afraid to sleep. 
Scared of the horrific thoughts going through my mind. 
I  toss and turn every night. 
Peace of mind, I am yet to find. 

This can't go on forever, 
I refuse to give up the fight to survive. 
I won't let anyone bully me, never. 
In Optimism and hope, the human lives thrive. 

Every single day teaches me a lesson. 
Some old while some are new. 
Get out of your mind's prison. 
The world's out there for you. 


Thank you so much for taking your precious time to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs. 😊😊

  1. Hi aparna, don’t loose your mental strength. Repeatedly read today’s thought πŸ’­ which many are saying it’s motivational. Be strong, because you have god’s gift ( your daughter). And before going to bed as I told you just close your eyes and pray πŸ™ for a minute ( maha periyava). Don’t worry. Take Everything in life as passing clouds ☁️.
