Just like a massive earthquake,
followed by a tsunami in the sea;
the year that moves to history today,
turned my life topsy-turvy.
Every time I tried picking up,
pieces of what is left behind;
a wave of guilt would wash me ashore,
shattering my peace of mind.
And through the darkest night,
came a beam of light;
as though magically from the universe.
It told me to stay put and not to give up,
identify my core purpose;
Shed my garb of doubting self,
and find calm in the chaos.
The universe was with me,
giving me all the strength;
to stand up, re-look at life,
shatter the castle I built around myself.
A castle of responsibilities, guilt,
treating my dreams as selfish and juvenile;
It all came down as sense descended,
the boulders I was carrying all the while.
The universe constantly nudged me,
to recognize my true potential;
to chase the dreams I was scared to dream,
to live till I die, in sync with the celestial.
So here I am, all geared up,
to take the load off me;
and take a plunge back to the ocean of life,
make my existence count to ME.
