Redeemed From Megalomania


I looked at  the blue expanse
That stretched wide in front of me,
In its never ending eternal glory.

Waves of relief washed over me;
I was filled with peace and tranquility.
Thank god, I was still tiny, and 
My troubles 'n' tribulations still petty.

The weight of the world and its
Complicated affairs could go take a walk.
Given all my obsession with the 
Minuscule cosmos I surrounded myself with,
I was still but a drop, nothing but a drop.

(Yes the ocean would be impoverished without me,
but that loss would amount to barely a drop.)
Oh, that feeling  - humbling, yet so comforting;
How exhilarating that I can surely take a moment
To do nothing, but simply sit back and enjoy,
As the other drops play their part...

  4. My megalomania has been reduced to a home in my head--where it's always been I suspect. But at the age of 14, it was out in the open, for all to see. That is...when I was NOT isolating--grin!

    Love your poem, Yuvika. Sometimes, even today, I am filled with Peace and tranquility!--grin!

    Glad to be here right now, wishing for you the peace and tranquility I am experiencing--at least for this moment--Eternity!
