KINGDOM OF SELF ESTEEM

Poetry By: Pratibha
Poetry



I always wondered why there is so much depression around and why no one is happy. Why there is so much unhappiness around, why relationships are failing, why people are failing to compromise and love unconditionally...so many why’s boggled my brain... Then, my BEST FRIEND URJA and LOVELY, EVER ENCOURAGING KATIE and MY MOM stepped in to solve this problem for me. I love you guys for being there for me unconditionally. I promise you all that I will try my best NOT to disappoint you. You have spent so much time and energy with me and it took me one full year to REALISE THE TRUTH...I was a tough cookie for all of you.
Thanks for helping me meet the “REAL ME”.
I dedicate this post to the three gorgeous women in my life.
I would like to share this proverb with all of you by SAINT KABIR...it says, “When I set out on a search for world’s worst person, I could not find one...And when I sat down quietly and looked inside me, I found that I was the worst of all.” And so, I have decided to strive to get some peace on earth and that peace SHOULD begin from ME...

I thrive on pain...
It heals nurtures, nourishes, clarifies vision, and cradles me when I am down...
I thrive on pain...
It has been there for me, with me, beside me ever since I came to this wonderful world...
It has been there when I needed it...it has never deserted me...
I thrive on tears...
They wash away my clogged and stagnant thoughts...
They revive my faith that "This too shall pass."
They help me grow stronger and more confident about myself...
I thrive on loneliness...
I need not beg, borrow, or steal it from anyone...
It's always there with open arms...
Makes me feel calm, soothes my aching soul, and makes me think...makes me ponder, makes me so happy and makes me feel loved...
It makes me realise that "I am my own best friend."
And then there is no sorrow when I know that I am there for ME...
Any day, any time, any moment...I am there for my own self...
I am quite possible to drag myself out of depression and low self esteem...
I am ME...I am I, ME, and MYSELF...
I am the free soul untouched by polluting thoughts
I am the free soul untouched my depression AND
I AM FREE...
Because I KNOW THAT I AM FREE...
FREE AS THE BIRD IN THE WIDE SKY...
FREE AS THE BREEZE OVER THE NOISY SEA...
FREE AS THE DEER IN THE GREEN FOREST
FREE AS FIRE...YES, FREE AS FIRE...Because I AM THE EARTH, I AM THE SKY, I AM THE FIRE and I AM THE SEA...
I am faith, I am failure, I am success, I am love, I am adorable, I am lovable, I am courage, I am talent, I am brave, I am fearless of the unknown, I am fragrance, I am bold...
I am gentle yet strong, I am kind, I am full of joy, I am special, I am unique, I am positive, I am hope, I am calm and peaceful, and I am thankful to my creator...

YES, I AM ME... JUST ME...A woman, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a cousin and a friend....

tagged yet not tagged...free yet feet on ground...nice yet not-so-nice at times for people near me...patient yet impatient...loads of vices yet loads of hopes to control them....trying hard...

Yes, I live in the kingdom of self esteem...
I am Pratibha.
