The Missing Pieces of Life!

Ross Sneddon@unsplash

On some days

I ride on the wave of optimism

drift like the dandelion wisps

with my meandering thoughts

sprightly, in gay abandon, across oceans.

On some days

I bury myself within a shell

hiding from the world,

protecting my fragile heart

from the emotional attacks.

On some days

I juggle between the many roles I play

bogged down by the gravity of relationships,

ensuing in a clash between

 my outward façade and inner core.

The summations of all experiences

have moulded me into who I am,

I learn, unlearn, falter, and assimilate

seek to be a better version of me,

In pursuit of self-realisation

I don a reflective mood,

yet the answers elude me.

I strive hard to fit in the jigsaw pieces

to complete my role, in the enigma called life

but, find some pieces still missing in the frame.

    Beautiful and real! I especially like, ” ensuing in a clash between my outward facade and inner core.” ❤ This is a common experience, trying to juggle our many roles. I think it is especially common among mothers. ❤

    Beautifully written, R. While presently I have been taking these long breaks from writing, apparently in search of the missing pieces, it gives me a wonderful perspective!

      Yes N. Missing your posts and pictures as well. At times these breaks do help one to gain some insight into life and all its paraphernalia. Hoping you find your missing pieces N. Have a good evening!!

    What thoughtful piece of writing. Things do not always make sense, and puzzle
    pieces will always be missing.

      Absolutely. It is very rare for one to have all the pieces to a perfect fit in life. But one always strives to find it. And at times we do find the missing pieces. Thanks for sharing your thoughts 🙂
