Poetry- The Rhythm Of My Life.

One often stumbles upon a moment in life, when self-doubt becomes a battle. I let go of my job in the US. And so, I too have questioned my self-esteem. During my experience as an engineer, my life somewhat felt off-track.

Fear takes control of one’s mind, and one eventually feels trapped. I did too. But I had to get out of it. And I did that by looking for my passion and latching myself to it. 

I never walked down the road to follow my hobby. To be honest, I never understood how someone would look at a hobby as a profession. I began working on my productivity by reading, which eventually aroused my interest. While reading, I felt emotionally full, and reading those books showed me that there is a way to express these emotions in the form of artfully set words.

During my life as an engineer, my outlook was mostly based on logical analysis. But I did not let myself get into it more. I changed paths. I looked away from everything that I already knew. I turned to poetry. I wrote a poem called Lights On, where I expressed every emotion and formed them into thought-provoking ideas. That piece, in particular, gained a lot of appreciation from my friends.

I soon realized that one could look for their passion and fall in love again with it at any time in life. And I adore that fact of life. I could finally understand my worth beyond my work and career. Writing took me to places. I have won a couple of writing contests, and it only makes me better at it.

I, like many other writers around, write about nostalgia. I believe that’s what drives some of my audience to my work. It is a relatable emotion. The thrill of connecting with people inspired me to start my blog. I also have a passion for traveling. And so, I want to run away into the unknown- down the sunlit beaches or highest mountains. With my words by my side, I want to visit places and find myself some peace.
