Let alone in the void of thought,
In its emptiness echoed a voice saying,
‘You won’t make it’, I was distraught.
I saw myself, staring at the inevitable,
Questioning the impossible
And reaching out to the unreachable.
I didn’t know if ‘twas a dream or vision
But I lacked strength and felt weak
Hanging there, in the mind’s chasm.
Falling prey to delusion,
Plunged into chaos,
Blinded by confusion.
Glimpses into what can and cannot be,
Far beyond the known and unknown-
Are those you can’t feel, hear or see.
But when you do, you’re on a roller coaster
Of thoughts, trapped by your own insecurities,
Unaware that the control is in your power.
You only see your insignificance
In that infinitely vast madness,
And question your existence.
But within you are the answers you seek,
Yet, you pay no heed to your instincts,
And resort to remain low and meek.
It’s up to you to quell or fuel
Your fears, dive deep into your soul
And discover your potential.
Breath in strength for challenges unpredictable.
Stand your ground and face every storm
Rather than passively giving in to the inevitable.
For you were made for greater glory-
In the very likeness of the Almighty.
Peccable but not unworthy.
So, don’t convince yourself to settle in the rubble,
For only your flesh perishes,
Your spirit is invincible.
It’s the void within which makes us feel like we’re worth nothing and we’re all vulnerable to its vacuum. Anxiety, fear, stress, lack of confidence, low morale and all other feelings that weigh us down originate from nothing; in fact, they are nothing at all. People say it’s all in the mind so just forget about it. Well, that’s partially true as it is in this ‘void’ that’s expanding in our minds; and ignoring it is not the right solution. You ought to understand this emptiness in order to fill it up.
If I’m not wrong, most of us overthink, don’t we? Of how events would have been otherwise or about those that are yet to come. Thinking eases the mind whereas overthinking stirs a storm within and if you don’t hold your ground, you’ll be carried far into thought. Thoughts that would make you feel like ‘you aren’t enough’ and in no time, you’ll be overcome by a sense of incompleteness that would expand if left unattended, thereby creating a void.
It’s up to you to live with it or start anew by taking time, to get to know yourself all over again. It’s fine if you don’t find things nice about yourself; just don’t give up, keep searching and when you think you’re done, look again. The more you know yourself, the nearer you are to being complete.
We’re all perfect yet, we consider ourselves imperfect simply because we’re limited by perception. Don’t feel let down by your weakness for it brings about a balance in personality when combined with your strengths. You are an entity independent of its form and circumstance, an embodiment of the mind. So, strengthen yourself mentally for it is that which keeps your spirit going; your form will eventually fall in line.
Heal your mind!
