Why this raging storm?

Why these disheveled thoughts?

Is voicing these against norms?


Will this turmoil cease,

Roared the entrails.

Anti-gods rejoiced my state.

Guilt overwhelmed the mind.


Emotions welled up as tears.

Indecisive stance, blank stare

Reflected mind’s greatest fears.

Purpose deficit life,

Filled with barren deliberations.


Sudden surge of healing within

Reawakened the broken heart.

Shoving away the insecurities.


Words to self were respite.

Eyes sparkled with bright insights.

Ousting stress, heart chirruped happy notes.


The storm subsided, igniting a fanfare.

My optimism befriends a newer dawn.

A new hope awakening. It’s a new beginning.
