Nothing Changed, but Peace of my Heart

Nothing Changed, but  Peace of my Heart

The air is the same, so is the morning mist.

The sunshine is the same, so its heat.

 The days are the same, so are the dark black nights.

 Every individual I meet the same, engrossed in its own world.

 The birds are same, so are their morning songs and evening hymns.

 Everything is intact, but my heart.

 It is not same anymore, not happy but remorseful.

 As if I am dead, so is my whole being handed over to my oppressors.

  As if instead of a muscular organ, this thoracic cage has a frozen space.

 This pain is endless, infinite and unrelenting.

 Giving me sleeplessness nights and twitchy days.

But the air is the same, so is the flaring heat.

Nothing has changed except, my peace of mind & harmony of my heart.

What a moving poem, sister Sumera. It's truly hard to sleep when times are uncertain. I wonder if you already heard from your family? Please keep safe. Stay strong. Keep writing.

Thank you for sharing this masterpiece out of your broken heart.

Dear Karen,
Thanks for your comments. Yet, I am out of touch cuz the phones aren't working in Kashmir. Yes, dear I shall continue writing.

Regards,
Sumera

My pleasure, dear. Oh, no. If I were in your place, I would already be very anxious and stress by now. How strong you are. Yes, please do. Hugs

Dear Karen,

Thanks for being so kind. I am good, I sleep well these days without anti-depressants but have no contact with my family yet. I read in the Khaleej Times that landlines have been restored but that is not true because I try every day but it doesn't connect. Pray for Kashmir.
Regards,
Sumera

My pleasure, dear. I'm grateful that you sleep well in the midst of the chaos. That's a win! Oh, fake news then. Tsk. Yes, praying for you, sister.

Dear Jill,

Undoubtedly, my heart has become a rambler. It isn't with me. It is searching for inner peace, however, I thank you and your friend, and I didn't consume anti-depressants this week.

Regards,
Sumera

Hello dear,

How are you doing today? Are there any new developments? I saw an article about some schools reopening.

You're very welcome. I'm glad we've been able to help you. That's amazing that you aren't taking any anti-depressants. How about sleep?
