As if Nothing Happened

Loud days of hustle and bustle

Where to find a way with tonnes of trouble?

When the night is full of hushed struggle

With tears you count is way double

Is there a way?

In this great wide crowded world to stay

By embracing the “Human” way

When your hallowed dreams collide

And make you immensely petrified

When there’s no way to face the tide

Will you sail across the unnerving ocean wide

As if nothing happened

When your heart goes numb

In the battlefields of scum

When they make you dance over filthy strum

Will you still walk in peace crumb

Like nothing happened

When people serve you the vicious venom

To restrain the power of blossom

And make your soul gruesome

Oh dear Bud, will you still graciously bloom

Like nothing ever happened

When they scratch your healing wound

With the tales of rotten memory bound

When it’s difficult to heal on faulty ground

Will you fly towards floating cloud

As if nothing happened

When they make your existence pointless

Their words suck out your weakness

And when there’s no choices

Would you still collect all the good pieces

As if nothing ever happened

When there is no choice left behind

But to knock the death’s door remind

Where blood sweat and tears reside

Oh dear, will you still take up this grind

With the smile refined

As everything happened

For A Reason

Thank you so much dear friend, Misbah!!

So well said, it is the brutal truth that people’s tongue is enough to kill a sensitive soul but we should never allow them to make us weak.

I have read this wonderful lines somewhere” We cannot treat people like garbage and worship god at the same time.”

We must always remain kind and honest even when things go terrible cause the one who is above us always gives us strength and power to do so.

May god protect us from evil minds and tongue.

Thanks for giving me strength through your words Misbah.

Take care

Sending lots of love to you dear

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Poets on August 15, 2021:

Srushti, you've written an excellent piece. So many deep thoughts, and all of them are true. People inflict significant harm on one another; some do so on purpose, while others do so unintentionally. Their words can be poisonous at times. Enough to kill a sensitive soul. But remember to trust the Lord and never forget that He is the only true friend who will never let go of your hand.

Don't worry and don't try to stop them. Let people do their work but don't allow them to make you weak. I understand it's difficult, but I promise you'll shine brightly one day. Much Love!!

Blessings and Hugs, dear friend

Thanks a ton Manatita for such an encouraging comment!!

You have said it right, life’s struggle will have all these challenges. And may god show all of us the right path to overcome these challenges and give his strength to follow the path.

As it is said, “ God does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear”.

Take care

Thank you so much John!!

I am so glad that you like my poem.

Even I can’t answer those questions but we can surely trust the process that it will lead us in good path.

We just have to live it, love it and learn it until that right path appears.

May god bless you
