Vision Glasses

The dam of my hopes
got shattered with despair
self-confidence slipped like sand
and my ocean of silence
started finding its Challenger Deep,
when my mind looked for answers
that my heart kept posing
feeling emptiness in the fullness
of uncertainties…

I sought solitude
in a room of darkness
that had no answers,
when a piece of ray
started dangling
from a corner in front of me…

I came out into the open
and saw how sun was walking
with confident steps
and how flowers and leaves
were smiling at him and each other,
some kids were giggling
over anything and everything,
I spent some time
listening to their chirping
without judging them
by wearing their vision glasses…

I was in a different world now
with no fear of failure
no desperation or stess,
now I know
how beautiful this world is…

Now I come out of my home
without any reason
on and often
to meet and hug
the pretty creations of the nature
that keep smiling
without any expectation…

I’m also a creation
of the same benevolent nature,
I knock on its door
to instill love in my hearts
that no longer has any question
to bother my mind,
and my ocean of silence
looks up at the sparkling sun
with a witty smile…

  2. Wonderful poem KK. My favorite line is” I spent time listening to their chirping without judging them by wearing their vision glasses.” A beautiful reminder to see people as a glorious creation without judgement.

  3. What a wonderful idea, Kaushal, to be able to change our perception of life just by putting on childhood vision glasses and looking at the world with the innocent eyes of a child. Thank you!

    1. You’re absolutely right, Cheryl, our so-called knowledge and experience adulterate our feelings, while children are clean and pure, unadulterated. Thank you for sharing your beautiful reflections 😊💖
