Complex Connections…

“Soul connections are not often found and are worth every bit of fight left in you to keep” ~ Shannon L. Alder

There are certain connections that seem unreal to us, that defy all logical sense and make us wonder about their charm, beauty and complexity…


Sometimes seemingly opposite unexpected ends attract,
The things we assume have no connection seem to form a pact.
Like the turbulence at sea which pushes the waves to the shore,
Helping it meet the far off land and wish for it more.
The sun and the moon like two opposite poles meeting during the eclipse,
Coming together to form a beautiful glow with their powers combined in a mix.
Like a candle coming to life with the aim to spread light with its glow,
However, the heat in turn melting it away until the wick is blown.
The red flames in need of a little air for it to sustain,
At the same time a strong blow of wind has the power to extinguish its dancing flame.
The secret magic of how water turns to ice and vice-versa,
With just a change in the temperature showcasing the true power of nature.
It is confusing how certain connections seem strange,
The element that brings it to life is the same which makes it hard for it to sustain.
They seem to have no common end or goal,
But when they come together it is nothing like before.
Like these elements in nature we humans too share such bonds,
That seem destructive to others which only that person understands and adores.
These connections are always hard to sustain,
For it demands a sacrifice often leaving one in vain.
But the emotions, the feelings and the love in these connections is so pure,
That no matter how complex they may seem,
And we may never know what will they result in or if there will be a result for sure,
But deep in our hearts we always do and we always will wish for them…and more.

Experiencing a Change…

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change” ~ Charles Darwin

Change is that inevitable part of our lives that has the power to shake us from our very core. Sometimes it is the situations we are in and sometimes it is the people we love and us. It is not easy to go through and not everybody can accept it. So what does it feel like experiencing this…


Be it a tiny change in a long thought out plan,

Or a life altering event that comes up and our attention it demands, 

Change is something so confusing that it makes us wonder, 

Perceived as beautiful yet threatening often making one quiver. 

Creating feelings of restlessness in the hearts, 

As one feels that it might bring him together or break him apart. 

Imagined fear of what may come, 

Preventing us to see what we may become.

Leading to soul-searching, identity questioning,

Dreading a probable change in everyone and everything. 

Questioning the choices that it brings with itself,

Wondering if it will all be worth it. 

The onset of change bringing with it an explosion of feelings,

Making one think of himself and his abilities.

The excitement of the new ebbing its way as we go deeper,

The tingling sensation in our hearts making us feel weaker.

Like a curious child prying from behind the curtains,

We seek to get a hint or a simple illumination.

Of what is it that will come next,

Will it make everything worse or better in context.

It creates apprehensions,

Begging for us to shed our so called pretensions.

Encouraging us to reach out to it,

To embrace the oncoming change from within.

For change is inevitable,

It is a part of the life we live.

An unexpected hidden blessing,

If one does not accept it then he must face defeat.

So no matter how challenging it may seem,

How much ever dreadful it may feel,

Accepting and living the change is the key,

To a happy life and with it success and glory.
