In the wake of queasiness, I call…

In the wake of queasiness, I call…

Wherefore there is recondite pain?

When spites model in front line, so naked

Why knives on the backbone are disguise-sheathed?

 

In the wake of queasiness, I call…

Wherefore there is orotund confusedness?

When you harp in each and every spell of breath

Why hunt in temples, mosques and churches on earth?

 

In the wake of queasiness, I call…

Wherefore there is gravid iniquity?

When you have scripted our lives’ blank shell slate

Why one bears riches in fate…why poverty is other’s trait?

 

In the wake of queasiness, I call…

Wherefore there is sleeveless hatred?

When you have served up solely love in the plate

Why one is embraced and the other is averted in hate?

    A very thought provoking post. I must confess, your vocabulary is fantastic! I love reading the words you choose to express yourself. I hope that you are feeling better!!! And keep asking the questions, it makes us pause and ponder. In the busyness of life that is a true gift from you to us!

      Thank you so much, Kirsten. I am glad to know your kind thoughts on my poems.
      Thank you for the concern……….I am feeling much better. Such episodes of questioning stretch on for days, sometimes. I have no clue why it happens to me so often..
      Whenever I read a pathetic story, crime, abuse or any sort of depressing story, my mind just goes out of control. I try to suppress them but they persist. Result is sleepless nights and days. I am cognizant that I am a very sore soul easily broomed off by emotions but i sympathize with myself for being emotional to this magnitude. I hate showing up vulnerable side, publicly. But, sometimes… while walking in a crowd, a gloomy thought of someone crawls, and tears just roll down. I feel so embarrassing. I know I cannot wipe off the world’s misery but…
      You have put it rightly “it makes us pause and ponder” I agree with you….it does. Thank you so much for sharing this line. It is liberating.

      Love and Hugs to you. Do drop in a line or two in my times of distress. You can make out my state of being from my posts. Stay Blessed!

        You have a compassionate heart, Reva. Add to that the heart of an artist and you have a woman who feels others pain deep in her being. I think your poetry gives you a venue to take that pain and lay down its burden in black and white. I hope that writing gives you relief. Being vulnerable in public is never fun, but you never whose life you are going to touch with your vulnerability. You might express the exactly what they need to hear when they need to hear it. You have a beautiful gift of painting word pictures of the emotions of your heart. Don’t ever stop using it! Blessings

          I am deeply moved with what you have said, Kirsten. You got my feelings right. Thanks a zillion for the understanding. People have labelled me vulnerable but I am not shying away from the fact. Yes, I am. Writing gives me a way to ventilate my suppressed emotions. I feel assuaged breathing my anguish into words.

          I just do not know how to express ….but I really appreciate your encouragement. I will definitely treasure your beautiful suggestion. Love you.
          Stay Blessed! 🙂

    I too have ask this question many times. But I think instead of asking why, I should be asking what can I do? None of us are entitled to riches, let alone a single breath of air. This is a beautiful poem R, you have a heart of gold. It’s all about heart posture 🙂 Finding gratitude in every situation, even the ones that really hurt. Love you my friend!!!

      Thank you very much, sweetie. I agree with you…instead of why we should focus on what we can do. You point is well taken. I missed this point completely. Thank your for adding the real essence here.

      I am glad to know your kind opinion. Stay wonderful and blessed always. Love you too. 🙂

  5. Wow, great poetry, as always and so many intriguing questions, as in why things are the way they are, right? But they are and that makes it what it is, i suppose. Identities are often hidden in characteristics/nature of a thing/person. Love it, love it, I always love poetry that makes me think and yours are always so insightful, it’s like a mini-journey in your beautiful mind. Thanks so much for sharing, R. Hope you are doing well, my friend.

    Love,

      Love you, Light. You always bring back my lost smile. I feel happy reading your appreciation. I just feel depressed, seeing things the way they should not be. I feel helpless sometimes. Just venting out to regain myself. I am glad you like my immature poems.

      I am not keeping well for the past two days. My eyes are burning looking at the screen. So coming on-line once in a while to check inbox. I got to see your recent post now……after reading your comment….I could not check the reader. See how I have become.

      I am lacking focus now a days. I dont know what is going on. Hoping normalcy soon. You take care and stay happy. 🙂

      • Aw, I understand, I feel that utter helplessness too at times – the sad part is that we have to give up on it ’cause finding answers is difficult. Your poems are not at all immature! They are very very insightful and intriguing – only a philosophical mind and a sensitive heart and come up with such lovely poems. ❤

        Oh no…do you have fever? Have you seen a doctor or taken some meds? Sleep a lot, that always helps no matter what it is. Aw, I am so sorry..please take rest and keep off of the laptop for a while – it can be exhausting, looking at the screen.
        I hope the same and I am sure it will, very soon, I'll pray for you, R. Get well soon and come back! 🙂

        Love and warm hugs for you, my friend. Please take care and keep updating me!

          Thank you for the all the love, Light. I am just being on and off. Not staring at the screen for long. I am already feeling better reading your care. I seriously do not know what magic is there in VM… reading that very word made me smile instantly though I am feeling tired to smile. Thanks for being my VM. It is helping me in its mystical little way.

You can always e-mail me, if you want to talk to someone, okay? Okay! I take that as a yes, hehehehe XD

    Wow! This sounds like a hard pill to swallow. There are so many tough questions as to why things are the way they are on this Earth. Many of them I think we’ll only know on the other side, my friend.

      Yes it is, dear. Yesterday, I was discussing on religion with one of the fellow bloggers and during that certain things opened up. Could not sleep with all those in mind…so just penned down the restlessness,

          There is one fellow blogger (initiator collections). He asked me about Sufism………….There it started and took so many cross roads…. and in the end we were making our opinions strong. He was of the opinion that religious rules are necessary otherwise man would behave like an animal. But my stand was………….no religion should deprive us from our freedom….instead it should liberate us from the chains of ignorance. I asked him, abiding by the religious rules……….are we behaving as humans. Leave about being humans………are we at least following those rules in complete sense? In the end, I just said, Humanity is the first religion and all others are secondary. All religions are different paths leading to one higher self so there is no point in talking high of one and degrading the other. all should be equally respected. You can read the entire conversation in the comment section of my post The Strings (my welcome page)

          PS I dont mind you asking me. I feel I dont have any mind to mind any. :)You too stay beautiful and ageless. Thank you for the love and blessings. I am all greedy for these. 🙂 Please do not laugh after reading those arguments. 😦

            Oh sweet Reva. I would never laugh at you for your thoughts, opinions or beliefs. Nor would I judge you. Who am I to do so? ❤ ❤ ❤
            As a Christian, I do believe in absolute truth (even wrote a post once along the lines. If interested, you can see it here: http://stacilys.wordpress.com/2014/01/31/truth-can-be-created-hmmmmmm/). However, I don't believe in Religious fundamentalism. I am a very emotional person, and when I became a Christian, I had great 'spiritual' experiences of overwhelming peace and joy. However, over time, when feelings would come and go, I would struggle with my faith and all. Anyhow, to make a long story short, I started to seek out the 'why' to my faith on an intellectual level. So, I don't just look at the Bible any more just as a spiritual book, but as a history book. Real events that happened in past history.
            I'm so sorry that the conversation lead to sharing strong opinions to rob you of your sleep. I remember this book I read once where the author (a missionary) was debating with a Jehovah Witness. He ended up winning the debate and left with a feeling of 'YES! I won'. Then he was talking with a friend that told him about someone he was sharing his faith with. He said that, even though they disagreed, he just showed God's love to him. I thought that was awesome.
            You stay blessed, sweet girl and make sure you get some greeeeaaaattttt deep and restful sleep tonight ok.
            Love and blessings.

              Ahhh,…thank you, my dearest. You are so kind and sweet. I am happy to read the detailed reply and I love the thoughts you shared. The story in the end is just awesome. I do not believe in any particular religion Yet I have strong faith in all the religions. I mean I am not inclined to any. I have a huge Bible, which I seek time to time when in distress. I read other religious texts too. I have a deep respect for all of them…..mostly the God who is dwelling in all of us.

              Let me tell you…..I did sleep peacefully yesterday. I struggled for few minutes and then I just dozed off. I got up at 9.30… such deep and long was my sleep. He He:)
              Thank youuuuuuuuuu for so much love and blessings. Sometimes, I feel that I do not deserve this much affection. Okay, I am to read your post now.

              Stay Blessed, Sweet-pie! 🙂

      • The way I always mention in our endless conversations, for all ‘Why’s’, there exists an absolute ‘because’ at the right place, right moment with the right people. Keep your questions pouring. Yet Gods processor works at unimaginable speeds, but to cater the answers, it ‘right’ catalyst should exist.
