First steps

You have a story.
There are words, waiting to be written.

Everything begins small.
Your little first steps, to climb up to her.
Mother, from where all your stories begin.

You are trying to climb up to her.
With her open arms, she gently, smiles.
Doubtless, you rise up.
Remember, those were your first steps.

Now, you’re all old, and strong,
Yet, you fear to climb the stairs of life.
Why don’t you trust?

Life is a book.
Why don’t you travel?
Why are you struck at the first few pages?

Let the chaos within burst out.
Even if you can’t see it, the story is weaving.
Thread by thread, into the tapestry of life.

And if words fail, hope remains.
For years to come, hope whispers, it’ll be better.
Better, sweeter, happier. Any more?

You leap through the dark mountains,
Follow storms. Yet, reach up to the stars.
Your first steps again. Do they taste the same?

Soaked in memories, happiness hails.
While sorrows make a wiser tale.
Mistakes, faults  — the chapters you accept,
And do not wish to visit again.

The story of the fool you were, the story of the fool you are.
Wrapped up in few words,
One Adventure, called life.

Have you ever heard silence?

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.”
― Rumi said.

“Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn?
Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends?
Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven’t the answer to a question you’ve been asked,
Or the hush of a country road at night,
Or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak,
Or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you’re alone in the whole house?

Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.”

Lately I’ve begun to realize that one can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension of it’s own.
When words are empty, equations doesn’t matter anymore. But it’s always difficult to keep shut or use the right amount of words.

  • First theory.

    The biggest challenge after success is shutting up about it. There are two secrets to success, one choose your words wisely, second I won’t tell you. Successful people tend to speak the right amount of words required, for only people intelligent enough can identify what’s relevant to be said and what’s not. Giving more information is not only harmful but might communicate a wrong idea.

    Say, if I’m chatting too much with my boss, he might think I’m interested in him beyond work. Or a cheesy salesperson may blabber out too much information, in a way nagging out the customer.

    Also in relationships, it’s important to understand the other person’s silence more than only words. Sometimes, in the middle of a disagreement with her husband or to avoid one, she’ll call time out. If she don’t pause long enough for a walk or a sitting meditation to reflect on what’s really going on, she’s likely to keep blundering with hurtful speech. In silence one has a chance to cool down, assess the situation, examine one’s own motivations, and consider what words will help heal the rift.

  • Second Theory.

    Speech pauses are the finest tricks of oratory since time immemorial. And the If you do it right, nobody is conscious of your pauses, but your ideas are more persuasively delivered. As white spaces add breathe to a paper full of words, speech pauses are necessary for verbal communication.

    For example:

    We were married ten years ago [pause] I still remember my first look at her coming up the aisle.Speech pause is an excellent way of delivering emotions. Isn’t it?

  • There’s another theory.

    Would you find it uncomfortable to go on a date and sit in silence for an hour because you had only recently met your companion? What would you think if after returning home from several months’ absence your parents and relative didn’t speak to you for several days? Can you imagine working on a four-person cattle crew for several days without being introduced to or speaking with one of the other members, who you did not know?

    Although these situations seem unusual to us, they are considered appropriate among the Apache. Although it seems natural to us that when people first meet introductions are in order and that when friends and relative reunite greeting and catching up will immediately follow, this is not the case for all cultures. There’s a study which investigates certain aspects of silence in the culture of the Western Apache of east-central Arizona.It is not the case that a man who is silent says nothing. – the Apache culture believes.

  • Finally I’d like to highlight the importance silence holds, spiritually. Silence soothes the harried soul.

    Maybe because I can talk up a storm, I love, even crave, silence. I feel safe in it. I know I won’t blurt out something foolish or harmful, something I’ll be sorry for. She said.

    It is in the womb of silence that we can grow ideas for the best course of action to take. They say it helps us use our personal resources judiciously. Talking expends energy and takes up time. One requires to identify inner knowledge one has, rather than looking for places to go for. The way in is through inside.


You can surely fool people by your words, but not by your silence. In fact, silent is one’s loudest cry.

IT’S TIME TO GIVE UP WORDS AND HEAR SILENCE.

The One That Got Away.

Close some doors.
Not because of pride.
Incapacity or ignorance.
Or arrogance.

But simply because,
They no longer lead
Somewhere.

Alexithymia
(n.) An inability to describe emotions in a verbal manner

Every word has a meaning. Every silence too.
Words, in their most explicit form, is the best way to express magic!
So, I fall in love everyday,
With ideas and sensations,
With places I’ve never been,
With people I never met.
I hold them long enough to let them go,
But I keep them in my heart
and in my soul.

But she would rather walk alone in darkness than follow anyone else’s shadow.
The Moon Lady
but somethings never change;
like that feeling you get when you haven’t seen someone for sometime now.
like that feeling of two people starting right where they left off.
And then, somethings do change like those two people growing further apart,
But also remembering the little things,
The little similarities that string them back together,
as if nothing ever happened or as if nothing ever drifted them apart.
Or parting them once again, pretending the unfolding of truth between people, who once knew each-other,
who stayed between lines together.
That day you’ll feel sad without knowing why.
Like you lost something precious but forgot what it was,
How hard you may try to remember?

DID YOU HEAR THOSE FOUR WORDS?

But I’d said it to you every day,
In ways you never knew.

It poured over the umbrella,
That I held for you in the rain,
Baked in the cake I made you,
Did you hear those four words?
While it breathes when you held my hand,
In the crowd we were lost
When you got the biggest slice,
And when you told me you loved it,
How I baked it for you twice.

It laughs through the walls of your house,
Which we painted when your mum had gone,
It peeps through the assignment I replaced with mine,
When you had not done.
Did you hear those four words?
In all the pretty things,
We saw together.
It was standing in the shade beside us,
When we waited for the bus to come.

And it waited in all the ways that I would miss you,
Every time that you were gone.
I might not have said those four words,
But it speaks through the belief I have, in you.
And actions speak much louder,
Than anything one can say.

So if you’re really tired of waiting.
For those four words to leave my throat.
All I can say is that, it’s really cold outside,
So, don’t forget your coat.
Did you hear those four words?

For love is not in the words. It’s in the wait.

I say, that those three words, are said too much, they’re not enough.
