Heart Talk

It’s strange how we all have a persona,
An image we’d like others to see.
A charm and charisma, an emotional clothing
It’s nice but it’s not really “me”

The real me, the me of me, the “who” that I am,
He’s not cool, calm or collected.
Inside the thoughts his head go crazy,
Like an untamed deranged juvenile. He’s a mess

Always overthinking random stuff of conversations he had.
With friends or strangers
Thinking the best, then ruminating the worst,
Battering himself with enfeebling fears.

He hide these fears behind fake actions, fake smiles,
Fake talks or fake phrases
Convinced that a fake him is better than the real him,
For now and the rest of always

A mind in overdrive can be really exhausting. Phew!
Most of us portray a fake us to keep up with society on a day to day basis.Until in the end it consumes us and we become that of which we pretend to be.

Some say that a man lives a better life when he sheds all masks. The truth underneath just needs to be brought into the light.

So what are your thoughts on it? Can we shed all masks?
I believe it’s only natural that we have private and public persona’s to some extent.

Also, on serious note, I want to dive into spirituality. I know the word “Spiritual” is abstract, but something tells me that it has answers to my questions. So please suggest me something, books or some accessible texts, so that I can propel the quest to find myself and my life’s purpose.

  1. I think it’s important to be a little pretentious to the external world, otherwise they’ll all just eat us up. But, similarly it’s also okay to be vulnerable with the people we love. It really builds trust in any relationship. It’s my suggestion, you should learn to share things. Nobody’s judging you. 🙂

    One book that has really helped me in tough times is ‘Unposted Letter’ by Rangarajan. It’s a gem. Do read if you can.

    This poem was beautiful. I’m expecting the third part is going to be ‘Brain Talk’. Is it? 😀

    1. Thank you Chandni. I appreciate you taking time to read and comment on my poems. Firstly, I agree with what you said, and I believe you have so much clarity and depth in your life. I see you enjoy your life to the fullest! I want such enthusiasm and rush in mine too.
      Second, I don’t really fear of getting judged. It’s my nature to keep certain things to myself. Been like that since a long time. I don’t want to bother people with my stupid thoughts. But, I’ll surely work on your suggestions. I see no harm in that.
      The book you mentioned seems interesting, and I’ll try reading it.
      Thanks again for helping me out with such motivating words! I’m not sure about ‘Brain talk’ Soul and heart stole my WordPress password, and wrote down what they feel. Can’t say brain would do the same. Who knows?
      Anyways thanks again for stopping by and wishing you and yours a very Happy New year!🌻🌸💫

      1. Wooohoo! I can already see the changes in your commenting style. New year has come, huh? Two long paragraphs! This is unbelievable.

        Clarity and depth? In my life? No thankyou. I have zero clarity, you know it. But I just love ignoring everything and being happy and making others happy. It’s like my purpose in life.

        Huh, if someone’s voluntarily asking to get bothered with your stupid thoughts, fir bhi mat batana tum toh. That’s so rude and stupid. 🤦

        My message for your brain. Dear Brain, I’ll tell you his password, just go and write something please. It’ll be a great trilogy kind of poem. 😀

        Happy New Year!! Goodbye bad Abhishek from 2019 and welcome hopefully Good Abhishek from 2020! 😺


    1. Thanks brother. I’m really glad that you could relate. Also, I’ll humbly look into your suggestion. Do you meditate? There’s so much to do next year, and I’m filled with positivity this time. Not going to waste precious time over useless things! Thanks for stopping by


  2. hey Abhishek!
    You should read ‘Many lives, Many Masters’. It is not purely spiritual but will help you. Or works of Rumi or Khalil Gibran
    And also listen to some sufiana kalams. If you want me to share these, you can msg on WhatsApp

  3. This is true. We sometimes wear masks to conceal our true identity for we dislike being our true selves.

    I’ll like to suggest reading material for you, but to be honest, the only book that matters to me right now where spirituality is concerned is the Bible and praying. If I do come across something that can benefit you, I’ll let you know. Take care of yourself.

    1. You’re so right Diana. We wear masks to conceal our true Identity, and sometimes to please others. But it gets toxic in a long run as we end up being something we’re not.
      I haven’t read Bible but my friend has a copy of it. I’ll borrow from him and give it read.
      Thanks for a valuable comment 🌻
