The best way to know the self is feeling oneself at the moments of reckoning. The feeling of being alone, just with your senses, may lead you to think more consciously. More and more of such moments may sensitize ‘you towards you’, towards others. We become regular with introspection and retrospection. We get ‘the’ gradual connect to the higher self we may name Spirituality or God or just a Humane Conscious. We tend to get a rhythm again in life. We need to learn the art of being lonely in crowd while being part of the crowd. A multitude of loneliness in mosaic of relations! One needs to feel it severally, with conscience, before making it a way of life. One needs to live several such lonely moments. One needs to live severallyalone.

It was a bad day
And it was not a so bad day
Life had something to offer
Life had reasons to differ
And life had plans to betray
Yes, feelings were mixed
And nothing felt jinxed
There were moments
When life really sucked
But it’s for that healing touch
That life had in the day for me
A ray of hope, a way out
After every letdown
It was a bad day
When life tried to make it so
A mess after another
Loss after loss compounded
Senses were left speechless
Romance of loss setting in
When hope flickered
With a message
That there was hope still
To look beyond
What was already lost
To go ahead
From that dead-end point
I had no other way
But to act on those voices
I stirred my soul
Out of the trance setting in
Away from that romance
To give the day another chance
Creating on that healing touch
To make for the ones
The day had taken away
A day’s life
Had seen many rough patches
But now, a day in life
Had some positive energy
To undo the bad
To talk to the good
Yes, it was a bad day
But it was no so bad after all..
