Life is an Ocean of Mysteries

Life is an Ocean of Mysteries

I heard it a thousand times earlier “You only live once”,  they say

I’ve seen people keeping a closed door

Just to stay off everyone’s way.

Isn’t it beautiful to let the light in?

In your room and into your soul?

With a new chapter to begin,

And your dreams to have no control.

We all have an unfinished chapter

Kind of a dreadful and baffling state

Nothing seems to be right, but only a catastrophe.

And all of a sudden the havoc it creates.

You feel a hush so awkward

Something you’ve never felt before

As if you only want to be heard

But you are too far from the shore.

All the wounds and pain and hurt

You learn from them in depth

When you get stronger, you convert

With all these years inside what you’ve preserved.

This feeling so bizarre 

Makes your heart beat faster

And your eyes hardly fill with tears

Feeling like a part of a body has a plaster.

You don’t talk much about this phase

But it keeps you thinking away,

Yet you deal it your own way,

As if you’re walking on a long highway.

When you see your soul split into two

You start fighting an unending war within

Something like this you never knew

Some unknown fear gets your mind to spin.

We all reach to stage too decisive,

When fear controls all our emotions,

Heart when experiences loss so massive

We swim into acceptance of an ocean.
