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

Leap of Faith!

The corporate world beckoned me with propitious propositions

with a cache of dreams, wrapped with sincere efforts

I embarked on the journey in earnest pursuit,

the promise of a bright future, calling out loud.

With time, the grooves of stress deepened

harried life style became a way of life

 work life balance, was on a precarious edge

frustrated sighs detonated to anguished screams.

Reflecting on the aftermath of an emotional detritus

I collected the scattered fragments of myself.

Infused with a renewed vigor to start afresh,

I tread on the road less traveled, with a leap of faith!

      I have seen so many people struggle to maintain that balance. Sadly many times it does take a toll on their family life.
      Thanks Shweta!

      Absolutely Sadje. When required, we should garner that courage to take that leap of faith , as it can be a defining moment/decision in life.

    “The road less traveled” reminds me of the poem “Road not taken” which was in my 9th grade English textbook. The road less traveled tends to be rough, but if it’s for you, the destination it takes you to would be a paradise! I wish you so much luck and congratulate you on having the courage to take the less traveled path. It’s a promising one, really!

      Thanks Sahana for sharing your thoughts here. The road not taken is an iconic poem. My last line was kind of inspired by that. Many times we let fear of the unknown overshadow faith and bias our decision making ability. All we need then is to take that leap of faith. ❤️

    I love how your words knitted together here in a beautiful tapestry to create an image full of life and meaning. My favourite part was the line about work life balancing precariously on the edge and the clever double entendre/meaning behind it. I also liked the Robert Frost allusion near the end of the poem. Simply fantastic writing! 💕

      Maintaining that balance is very demanding Cheryl. Though we try our best to do that, many times it just gets too daunting. Then it’s time to pay heed to our inner voice and not hesitate in walking on another path. So glad you 🎂could relate to this. Thanks a lot Cheryl. Enjoy your day ❤️❤️
