Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Breakthrough!

Breakthrough, Wall, Opening, Stone Wall, Freedom

ic:peggy marco@pixabay.com

Trapped in the abyss of void

consumed by darkness

walking on a tightrope

vacillant steps

the fall inevitable.

 

Timely intervention

oodles of patience

prodding, gentle unmasking

comforting reassurances

demystifying obscurity.

 

 

Finally, a visage of hope

monstrous mind slayed

purpose refocused

perseverance paid off

life saved.

 

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #144 : Breakthrough

Stressful lifestyle is one of the major factors that cause an emotional imbalance in people today, leading to many mental health challenges, depression being one of them. It is extremely important to identify this issue and provide timely intervention and counseling to such patients, in the absence of which it may lead to suicidal tendencies too.

    A lifetime of echoing scratches, long have i walked by.
    Grinding the grit under my feet, yet the sack half empty.
    Even those maples grew so tall, but not my graph much sought about.
    I crossed those murky rivers deep down to my neck…
    Looking for that glittery stone which everyone talked about.
    Long have i suffered the wrath of the circling hands…long have i lost my serenity.
    Darning those high peaks where clouds rest in peace,
    The melancholy song of the nightingale in starry nights…
    Let me now make my abode in the shades of the night
    Let me now live in peace that my burning heart has longed for….
    Leave me now, leave my thoughts, for I have now drowned in my satire.
    Leave me now…..leave me now
    ” AMIT BHAT”.

      Thank you Kamal. Some how people still hesitate to come out to seek help for mental health. I am sure if they do so, it can be treated much better with positive results.
