Powerful Words Of Demotivated Hope: A Self-motivational Poem

Shibangi is very sensitive to emotional situations. Rather than holding all the emotions within herself, she brings it out in form of poems.

The people around me
are filled with so much energy
I should be too, I thought
affected by theirs
But why about myself
I feel so slummy?

Why motivation only adheres to me
and do not absorb within my soul?
Why even after throwing
disappointment too far,
it comes to me again
bouncing back like a ping-pong ball?

Then I tried to find
among stacks of hopelessness
a bright light of hope,
deciding already if it's even too tiny
it would completely work.

After some time
rummaging through
the shelves of my mind,
a thing caught my attention
Oh! There was it
whom I've been searching
for so long.

But what all I saw was
hope had been bruised
its shelter was also in ruins
and its light was almost gone.

I asked
"Why are you so shabby?"

Startled by my voice
suddenly anger raised in its eyes,
"You're the one!
for whom I've been devastated
No, don't get shocked
upon this accusation,
The motivating words
you pen down
all of them
are just overrated! "

"Motivation makes me breathe
and you've chocked me
distancing both of us,
You want to live
all by yourself
But remember, I don't! "

The words blurted out
gave rise to a thought
that actually helped me
to recover from my gloominess
and I was able
to squeeze my soul out
of negative thoughts.

Motivation is not a showoff
It's a much-needed power booster
Not just words will make it worthwhile
But your actions must define your words

And it won't enter into you
until you need it
until you've the courage
to throw out
All the bad attractions.
If you ever succeed
just wait and watch
how the bruised hope recovers speedily
and build a lot of huge success mansions.

Thank you Sowrabha ma'am! Glad you liked it. While I was writing this poem I was actually feeling like that. There's so much motivation around me, still I get demotivated easily. So, this poem would make me feel good at my lowest times and in others life too

Hi Shibangi, this is indeed a very powerful poem. Motivation is indeed a power booster and actions must match the words. Love the flow of this beautiful piece.

Shibangi absolutely true depiction. Self-affirming and motivation are pep talk we need to follow on daily basis. Nice wordings with deep meaning.

Sanjyoti Das on September 03, 2020:

Absolutely right..motivation is that tiny spark that has the ability to work upon the untapped potential of us humans

There are times when I would ask myself whats wrong with me? Why do i lose my zeal?and a deep self talk tells me that positive affirmations and a lil motivation can create wonders and bring that lost enthusiasm.

Beautifully explained in the form of poetry.
