I’d love to share something with you today. A part of me. And I couldn’t think of putting it as graciously as I do through my poetry.
Here I am. This is me. A part of my soul, in your eyes through my words.
I feel this breeze of air through my skin running deep into my veins. A fresh new voice calling me. I can hear it, but it’s not as clear. I strain my ears just as enough to listen to this distant voice – A familiar hearing.
This is Life calling you Aishwarya – Are you ready for it? It’s going to be tough. It will bring you to your knees. Just look up. Pray. Get back to working with yourself. Life works while taking small steps. Just when you realize you’re not that far yet, you’re already a long way through in your journey. Believe. Become. All it demands is a little faith and a whole lot of strength and courage. It’s okay to stop for a while. To let yourself charge again. It’s okay to not know everything and make mistakes. So that you can face it all. The secret – It will rain. You’ll start drowning AND that’s when you’ll finally breathe.
| JUMP |
The wind rushes past your face, your eyes catch a glimpse of life.
Your mind brings you to a halt because you fear that you’ll land on a knife.
The world is in front of you with opportunities galore.
Is there really life out there? Is there really more?
As much as your heart wants to, your mind will not let you.
Will not let you jump off of this ledge; it wants your feet firmly on the ground.
You close your eyes and think, and when you open them again, you look around.
The sun is setting, the mountains are smiling and the ocean is laughing.
Everything is telling you to take a leap of faith.
But fear holds you back and says, “stay, just in case…”
A bluebird zips around you and you understand its chirping.
It assures you that you are safe and that no danger is lurking.
That on the other side of fear, there is bliss.
This is why your heart is begging you to go; there are things you simply cannot miss.
The laughs, the love, the success you’ve always dreamed of.
You grab your chest, feeling your heart beat fast.
You glance back behind you and see your past.
A tear falls down your cheek as you realize that you must let go and go for it.
Fear is screaming now, “Stop! Stop! It is not safe, you will regret it!”
The clouds part and the sun illuminates your body, flooding you with magnificent heat.
You have felt Love and it’s something that no fear can ever beat.
You smile to yourself; you know what you’re going to do.
You throw your arms up, fear can no longer control you.
How liberating this is.
You take one last look at your past and finally push off with both feet.
Exhilaration floods you, adrenaline electrifies you. And fear takes a seat.
When you land, you look around and see other people who are just touching the ground.
As you look closer, you notice that they have realized something so profound.
Just as you begin to wonder what they knew, it hits you.
You jumped. You survived.
You now walk among the many who are dancing, the many who thrive.
You are surrounded by feelings of accomplishment, excitement, and delight.
You hear others celebrating their jump, their risk, their flight.
Your heart seems to beat to the sound of the drums around you, thrilled.
You know now that if you would have stayed stagnant, you might have been killed.
The fear tried stopping you, it tried holding you back.
And now you feel endless Love, and fear is now something that you lack.
You are ready to move forward and to experience this beautiful life.
To find your passion and not be held back because of a strife.
You are capable of silencing the fear and being brave.
You will now do all of the things that your soul actually craves.
Your happiness is the priority. And unfortunately for the majority…
It is not.
Many still listen to their fear.
So, my dear,
Inspire them to do what will save them.
Inspire them to jump.
With Love and Light,
Aishwarya Shah ✨❤
