Something ain’t going your way
Jeans too tight and your hair ain’t right
We all get some of those days
Oh, throw that mirror away
Oh, you know it’s gonna be okay……
…..sang Selena Gomez into my ears. Yes, it was one of those days for me. I scrolled my contact list to see whom I could to talk my heart out. But found none. I didn’t want to talk to anyone, yet I wanted to be heard. My one BFF was busy drowning herself in the sea of books for the upcoming semester exams and the other one was somewhere hiking the mountains. So I had no one to call. Loud music was my easiest escape as usual. As this song played on, I closed my eyes thinking where life was taking me.
I was deep in my thoughts when my phone suddenly rang. I stared at the name of the caller. It was from him, my anchor, my cousin brother. I don’t know how but he always knew when was the right time to call, like now. I picked up the call, a bit reluctantly. Within seconds my voice gave away the fact that I was upset. Few minutes later after talking to him, I could see life in a different light, the light of hope. That was his impact on me as always.
This is not the only one experience of the sort. In the past, there have been multiple instances where he his words had helped to pick myself up from the not-so-happy times. His mere presence in my life made it better, full of hope. He taught me how to be positive in the darkest of situations. His life and way of living is standing source of inspiration for me. The book referrals from him always fill me with renewed energy, every time giving me a different perspective to reconsider the decisions I take in my life.
Sometimes I wonder what actually drives him in from within. I guess those books he reads and the things he listens has made him the overflowing source of positivity in the lives of those around! The experiences that are shared by him are bound to be a great source of inspiration if you are one of those dreamer types, like I am. The philosophy that he lives by, “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
This is the person who, even in my dull moment, inspired me to write this poem.
With no road down there,
And thoughts lost somewhere;
I keep walking here,
With nothing really to care.
With pain hidden down deep,
Happiness I’m trying to reap;
Though the tears are ready to creep,
But there’s a smile I have to keep.
When days are slow and nights are long,
I keep humming my secret song;
When life isn’t right and everything is wrong,
I keep going, bring strong.
When I see myself shake with fear,
And no more pain I can bear;
A little voice in my heart I can hear,
“Keep walking, sunshine is near”!
I can say that this person is surely #madeofgreat.
