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...


  1. hmmmmmmmmmmm it would bea blis to sit and enjoy all that wont it ..


  2. "Oh, that feeling - humbling, yet so comforting;"

    I love it when I get to read poems on your blog!:)

  3. The blue expanse is just lovely to watch! Lovely words:)

  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!


I appreciate you taking out the time to share your valuable opinions! They mean a lot!
