There have been many a times when I just go blank.
“Have you ever faced a situation when you don’t know what to write?”
People ask. Of course I do, there are even times when I can’t understand if what I’m writing is right.
There are times when I can’t understand my next step
Times when my pencil isn’t moving the way I want it to, leading to a misstep.
Sometimes I cry because a blank expression or mind doesn’t let me dance
So many times, I’ve also missed a chance.
But honestly, this blank thought has improved me
It has got me to a place, where I always wanted to be.
To a higher level of growth and mindfulness
To a level of composure and happiness.
Every time earlier I went blank it frustrated me
It stopped me from doing what I wanted to do, stopped me from being me.
However today, I love it when this blank thought strikes me
It moves my barriers away, it makes me free.
It’s like a white glorious morning sky to fly
A new path, new road not taken, to explore and not wry.
A blank canvas to paint your mind out on it
Or a blank window to write what the heart says, not necessarily fit.
Sometimes it’s good to be blank and feel the emptiness
It’s wonderful to be silent and hear a soul talk in steadiness.
