Poem of the Lonely Man

Alone in his room, the man does sit

No sound to be heard, no light to be lit

He thinks of the past, the joys he once knew

But now he’s alone, with nothing to do

The world outside moves on without him

His loneliness is like a feeling so grim

He remembers the laughter, the love he once shared

But now he’s alone, his heart feeling bared

The nights are the hardest, no one to hold

The silence so loud, his heart feeling cold

He longs for companionship, someone to care

But now he’s alone, with no one to share

The man tries to keep busy, to fill the void

But the loneliness persists, like a constant annoyed

He yearns for a friend, a lover, a mate

But now he’s alone, his heart feeling weight

Alone in his room, the man does sit

Wondering if anyone cares a bit

He hopes for a time when he’s not so alone

Until then he’ll wait, in his room on his own.

Its a family

Being in a family where you are loved by one parent but disliked by your siblings can be a deeply emotional experience. On one hand, the love and support from your mother can feel like a beacon of hope and a safe haven in an otherwise tumultuous situation. It can be a source of strength and comfort that helps you navigate the difficult relationships with your siblings.

But at the same time, the pain of being rejected or disliked by your siblings can be almost unbearable. It can feel like you’re constantly walking on eggshells, never quite sure what will set them off or why they seem to hold such animosity towards you. It’s a lonely feeling, knowing that you don’t have the support of the people who should be closest to you.

It’s easy to internalize this rejection, to wonder what you did wrong or why your siblings can’t see the person you truly are. You might feel like an outsider, like you don’t quite belong in your own family. It’s a feeling that can be hard to shake, even as you grow older and start to build your own life and relationships.

But it’s important to remember that you are not defined by the opinions or actions of others, even your siblings. You are worthy of love and respect, no matter what anyone else thinks. It may take time, but it’s possible to find a sense of peace and acceptance within yourself, even if your family dynamic remains complicated.

And while it’s painful to be at odds with your siblings, it’s also important to remember that relationships can change and evolve over time. It may be worth seeking out therapy or mediation to try and work through any underlying issues that are contributing to the tension between you and your siblings. With time, effort, and patience, it’s possible to build stronger, healthier relationships with the people you love.

Show Me Your Way Out

Like a silkworm weaving
her house with love
from her marrow,
and dying
in her body's threads
winding tight, round
and round,
I burn
desiring what the heart desires.

Cut through, O Lord,
my heart's greed,
and show me
your way out,

O Lord white as jasmine

Inner Peace

 “We laugh at the efforts of the musk deer to find the source of the scent which comes from itself and despair at our efforts to find the peace which is our essence.”

“Low self-confidence isn’t a life sentence. Self-confidence can be learned, practiced, and mastered–just like any other skill. Once you master it, everything in your life will change for the better.” – Bruce Lee

Self Confidence

The Best Time is Now

Do not set aside your happiness. Do not wait to be happy in the future. The best time to be happy is always now.

Don’t let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It’s your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don’t let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others’ prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being. Adventure.

Be Kind !!

A eleven years old girl went to her mother to complain. “I can’t manage to have friends. They all stay away from me because I’m so jealous.”

Her mother was taking care of newly-born chickens, and the girl held up one of them, which immediately tried to escape. The more the girl squeezed it in her hands, the more the chicken struggled.

Her mother said: “try holding it gently.”

She obeyed her. She opened her hands and the chicken stopped struggling. She began to stroke it and the chicken cuddled up between her fingers.

“Human beings are like that too,” said her mother. “If you want to hold onto them by any means, they escape. But if you are kind to them, they will remain for ever by your side.”
