Live Life Lovingly!

Are you ok?

Three words that can mean so much

To share a little supportive care as such

In our daily working & striving

As we carry on with life and living.

Following our paths with blase indifference

Rushing through, an unforeseen negligence

Often assume, there is no issue

But if we care to notice and keenly view….

Behind that strained smile and tired eyes

Erratic movements, the lows and highs…

There is always more than meet the eye

There is always a tear behind an overt smile

There is always hurt behind overt humour

There is always a lurking grief in the lack of love.

3 simple word could make a difference

3 simple could assure another

3 simple words could bring hope in despair

3 simple words could change a life

This world is busy, with no time to spare

People living nonchalantly without a care

I me and myself seems here to stay.

Unless we find in our hearts to live in a more caring way.

ARE YOU OK ? Care to ask another

Strive to thrive with one another

And you will hear the truth by far

There is no use rushing on,we are all on par.

The title of this poem is inspired by Lance Scoular’s very relevant post that speaks for Suicide Prevention and the thoughts seeded from the very reflective post recently by Fatima Williams instilling self worth in times of lost esteems lost hopes and lost battles.

A topic many refuse to confront as it is too sensitive to deal with. But its prevelance and increasing numbers only show the need for empathy consciousness in today’s world.

A little sensitivity and empathy can go along way in prevention of widespread negligence by society on such issues.

A few musings…

Even writers and artists of all fields are categorized as hard nosed focused and practical business driven… hence successful or the rest who are supposedly impractical, quirky, emotional by nature or sensitive by nature with empathy consciousness hence not too touted for success in the mainstream.

This categorisation happens amongst all walks of life . Amongst many so called professionals in every sphere there is this distinct elevated difference that seems like they have it all figured. But reality often presents a different picture.

We often we find that the pinnacle of success is a perfect place for a downfall. No one is taught the way down after a climb. In a society that values only the successful, that often teaches to work one’s way to the top by overt competition, ambition and promotes the need to prove, sadly there is one to catch you when you fall or no one to hold your hand if you slip and definetely no learnings in place for support and follow up care in case of a miss. You are left to fend for yourself until u can find a place for yourself under the sun.

Although the world is on one side recognising multiple intelligences yet the assumption still remains that all can work with the same rules of the game .

It is what is unique in you that truly matters. Keep knowing you matter as you are.

Savvy

The world is busy all the time, to realise the significance of contribution by these so called sensitive and caring people who can find in themselves the time to ask another… Are you ok?
