Little packets of hope...


Things are not going your way,
Black is more evident in the gray,
Not a smile on your face,
Nothing gives you solace..
Everyone and everything appear distant,
In favoring you, luck seems hesitant,
You feel time is not on your side,
and there is nothing you haven't tried.
Just when you think it can't get worse,
Something happens and life seems like a curse,
You stop smiling and give it all up,
Not half filled, its an empty cup.

I am the same as you,
Having felt this,in times old and new.
But now when i look and ponder,
It all makes perfect sense, i realize in wonder.
The cup was always filled up to the half,
I found no reason to not laugh,
There are little joys around in every season,
Always believe everything happens for a reason.
Just when you think its difficult to cope,
Look around,
You will always find ,
Little packets of hope!

  9. That was beautiful, Upasana!:) The optimism in the second stanza has been portrayed really well :) And yes, our poems do have a few things in common :) Cheers to that!:)

    BTW, your header looks simply superb! You have given your blog a fabulous makeover!:) But I feel, you could have used a smaller resolution for the header pic. Just a suggestion :)

    Keep blogging, Upasana :)

  14. Your lovely little poem is one little packet of hope. You have painted the triviality of mulling over problems in life brilliantly and provided the inspiration to find the little reasons to laugh. Beautiful and soothingly inspiring!

  16. Nicely written. I agree that when you say the cup was half full and why didn't we laugh. We sacrifice our today worrying that something is not perfect. We have one life to live. Better to enjoy our today as well.
