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.

Little Realizations With Time…

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style” – Maya Angelou

They say life teaches us lessons with each hurdle each moment and each second. But the beauty lies in accepting these lessons and understanding their true essence…

A young one holding onto his mother so close,

Fearing that he may loose his path as the crowd slowly grows.

As the child grows older he gets distant from the mother with dreams to follow,

But his love for her only grows stronger with the morrow.

The sun and the moon have a strange connection,

When one comes up the other is lost from our vision.

Despite this awkward yet natural arrangement,

They maintain a balance a perfect synchronization.

When feelings of loneliness sweeps us away,

Making it hard to decide if we should leave or stay.

It is in moments like these that we gain clarity,

Who are our friends and who holds feelings of enmity.

Trust and faith go hand in hand,

The moment one leaves,

It is difficult for the other to take a stand.

It is hard to rebuild and regain,

Once lost it is difficult to sustain.

When we are hurt by someone close,

Due to expectations that we never spoke.

No matter how hard overcoming the pain may seem,

The strength lies in us as we learn to forgive.

There is always a doubt in the heart,

Of what is it that will cross our path.

They say life is full of surprises,

At times unravelling with it lessons that one learns with time and slowly realizes.

It is with these little things that I realized,

That learning is a part of life from which one can never run away or hide.
