I had a conversation today, with someone from another state, who called to let me know that they were reminded of reading this poem from me and went looking for it. They told me that this poem is feeling so relevant and practical in their experience right now. We discussed how necessary yet tricky it can be to actually apply the idea of this poem in our lives.Β 

My heart feels so happy and grateful to share it again with all of you today! This poem was originally published on March 1, 2016Β  Someone actually went back to look for it because they remembered what it said!!Β  I wanted to bring it back for my new friends and readers here πŸ™‚

Drama wanting to be shared
With anyone who even slightly cared

Boredom is the mother
Of lookingΒ for another
Who would give a nod
To the story that we weave
As truth what we believe

More than one head shaking together
Feels great to find a smile
As we walk the mile

Use it though like a condiment
Added to your own recipe of a journey
As a tasteful and powerful complement

If used as an escape
It only adds more trauma to the drama
If used as entertainment
Leads certainly to disappointment

Get to know the blank
The space of lonesome boredom
From where all drama arises often
Helps you isolate trauma in exclusion

Now you can choose what to play
Really feel the pulse of your character
Now you become the co-writer
Enjoy all the drama for what you care
Choose the audience with whom to share

It is your show
The more and more you let go
It is your show
The more you contribute to the flow
It is your show
Take time to really know
The characters you allow
To be part of your show

The choice may not be in someΒ characters
The choice is then actually in your role
In all the drama you want to share
With the ones who would really care

  1. What a lovely compliment to have someone searching for your words…I came away from this poem feeling empowered, it’s an urgent reminder for us all to unhook ourselves from the hypnotic pull of FOMO and drama!

  3. I like these lines: “Feels great to find a smile
    As we walk the mile” It is great to find a smile. That is also a beautiful way to grow flowers right out of the ground rather than in a pot on top of the terrace.

  4. Pragalbha, thanks so much for sharing this poem here again. I have to say, it feels as real as it can. I loved this line, as simple as it is, it touches me- “Feels great to find a smile”
    And the compliment that you got is well deserved.

  5. A very beautiful yet insightful poem. It reminds me to not focus on other people’s opinions as the basis of my own, and to enjoy my own company. Ultimately it empowers me to accept myself and accept my journey.
    A lesson I need because I often get tangled listening to advice and worrying how others perceive me. Thank you for such inspiring words.

  6. I didn’t see this poem the first time around, so I’m really glad you’re sharing it again. It’s a great reminder that even though many aspects of life may be beyond our control, we can often choose our own role within the drama. Very well expressed, Pragalbha.

  8. So deep and multi-layered. Just SO much within this poem to ponder upon. I’ve read this several times and each time received something “new” from out of your words. Absolutely phenomenal!! Thank YOU so much for giving me several “new” insights. Bless you, dear friend. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

  9. I’m not surprised that your poem was sought out and remembered! I remember this poem came through when I was going into labor! Lol. That was my real drama. You know, synchronicity is amazing, and it means so much to each of us in different ways, and meanwhile we are so connected in ways we don’t even realize. I love getting to know the characters at this point in the journey. Happy weekend to you my friend! πŸ™‚
