A storm is coming

they warn.

Stay put. Stay in.

But, it cannot be more devastating

than the one

already raging inside me

tearing me apart

shred by bloody shred.

So I step out.

  1. Who knows? Stepping into the storm, might be what was needed to calm the one inside of you. If you survive it, it will give you a new perspective..I have no doubt about that:) Thought provoking, Sundaram, as so many of yours are:)

    • Hey Karima. Glad to hear from you. Please excuse me for not being as active as before. But I’m working on it.
      Now about the comment. Very well said, as you always do. It sure took my mind away from the inner turmoil for some time, and made me feel better. Perhaps you are right. It was needed to untangle me from the inner, and set me free.
      Thanks dear. Take care….🙏🙏🌸🏵️🍀

  2. Emotions and passions very well expressed . It is always easy to face and brave storms which rage in nature but the unrest and conflict within is often tormenting and difficult to contain . One seeks solace and release in nature the tempest within is more turbulent .

    • Absolutely…that’s why the people who can master the inner, and remain rooted in the centre of their beings deal with life in much better way.
      Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. 🙏🙏🙏🏵️🏵️

  3. We must step out of our own mind if we stand any chance of conquering the demons within. As someone who struggles with depression this story resonates deeply with me about how I must face each day.

    Thank you so much for sharing. 😊

    • Hey Hamish… I’m glad it made a positive impact on you. And we all face these inner demons. Just the faces are different, even though equally grotesque.
      Thanks for stopping by…🙏🙏🙏
