A tiny poetry about what love means to me.
As they waited, they talked. What would it be like when we get there? Again. After waiting for all these years. Are the people still the same? How consumed are they by their things. Things that we know mean nothing. Not here, anyway. We’ve spent years, up here, waiting, for only a chance to be…
Notes to myself post recording this Karaoke version of Meghan Trainor’s Original-
*One does look vain recording these. But it’s fun also. So I’ll take the risk of seeming vain, which I’m not, promise.
This live performance, by absolute legends in Music, is classic and unique, in that, it engulfs you in its melancholy, making you feel slightly downhearted by the despair it expresses… BUT at the same time you feel somehow strangely healed by the wistful expression of it all. By the end of it, you’re almost ecstatic that by just watching them perform, you have shared in a little of what they were feeling on stage.
I believe that if what you’ve written speaks to someone, it’s only because your words are being read by a similar feeling heart.
I am very intrigued by the subject of Human Psychology. Recently, I came across an article in the field of ‘Neuroscience’ which talks about why humans are naturally predisposed to feeling miserable. My first thought was “hmmm, that explains a lot!”
That’s the thing with writing – through it, we give the readers a glimpse into our mind. It isn’t easy to let it all out for the world to see. It is a brave display of our innermost thoughts, available for anyone to judge. But we aren’t deterred. We bare it all because we are being true to ourselves, and that is what matters the most at the end of the day.
The opportunity to write for a popular online community of mothers, made me think of the things I do that help me practise Self-Love. I came up with a list. But I’m gonna explain each point with the help of THE TOP THING I surround myself with to feel good – MUSIC. If you get nothing else from this piece, you will, at the very least, have listened to a cool and unique song by the end of it.
I actually have time to listen to my own mind. Things I push back most days “coz I’m busy”. It’s been overwhelming as I understand those things are becoming priority for me, as I’m able to focus on things that are more important in life. Because the outside noise is gone, I have time to just BE.
Ever been in love? Ever got that same magical feeling from music?
It’s like rain on a faintly sunny day, And petrichor.
It’s like a cool breeze on your face,
As you smile, close your eyes and open your arms, to really feel it.
