Today’s blog highlights the journey of self discovery. The journey of moving forward. The journey of self- love. The journey of life.
So here’s a poem accentuating the journey of acceptance of beauty within ourselves and loving ourselves.
On a serene, rainy day, perched a little bird on a window pane,
Protecting herself from the giant drops, struggling in vain,
On the other side, sat a young girl, lost in her thoughts,
Enraged with life, owing to her skin marred with white spots,
The little bird, knocked on the pane with her mighty beak,
In her attempts to save herself from the gloomy bleak,
Listening to the frantic cries, the girl let the bird in,
Covering the winged life with a blanket of hope, warm and thin,
The little bird grappled for breath for a while,
For her rebirth, she thanked the girl with a smile,
Before flying to her open sky and returning to her fate,
She asked the girl the reason behind her gloomy state,
Absence of cheerful mirth and happiness was the reply,
Being ostracized had made her aloof, quiet and immensely shy,
The bird chirped and joyously exclaimed,
Saving my life has earned you the greatest prize, she claimed,
The exclamation left the girl stuttering with happiness,
She realized she was no longer a prisoner of her loneliness,
The girl with renewed confidence walked towards the door,
For the first time, from the sea of misery, she would try to swim ashore.
