The world is plagued with several problems. And some of these issues have a lot of misconceptions & ignorance tied to them. One such malady affects around 350,000,000 (350 million) people across the globe, according to WHO. What is this ailment? Well, it is none other than…
We’re either biting our nails about the future or frowning about the past.
Learning from your mistakes & planning ahead is great, but sometimes we need to retune to the present & recall our blessings.
The present is filled with many presents that often go unnoticed.
Shuffling through the dark
With only the meagre flame of hope
Dwindling as the blackness consumed
The room with greater intensity.
The actions were felt but not witnessed,
Even by himself.
His bare feet sensed their way across
Till he came in contact with a sticky slime
Which wreaked of a foul stench
Unknown to him before entering that doomed place.
Sometimes you feel like no one cares about you – like everyone is indifferent to your existence. Sometimes you feel really lonely and unloved.
Well, this is a feeling that many can relate to, especially in the modern era. With the rise of technology and the loss of human contact, this is accentuated: the individual faces alienation as they become a mere asset, losing their uniqueness: you’re only a student, an employee, a male/female, etc. Your identity is lost and your individuality becomes irrelevant.
Well, William Wordsworth recognised this problem all the way back in the 19th century. In particular, he recognised a woman named Lucy whose isolation and loneliness he empathised with. The true identity of this female is unknown, but what is known is that the poet, at least through his ‘Lucy poems’, shows real caring and love towards her.
So in this article, we’re gonna explore one of those poems called ‘She Dwelt among the Untrodden Ways’.
Feel like you’re never good enough and hate yourself? Don’t believe you can achieve much and have stopped trying? Maybe you’re easily hurt by criticism or just wanna stay away from others.
If so, chances are, you have low self-esteem. But does that mean you’re cursed to be that way? Of course not.
In this article, we’re gonna learn about what self-esteem is, the benefits of positive self-esteem and how you can get there.
Guest poem by Leann Mesquita
There was a point
where I couldn’t hide it;
Hide it from the world that surrounded me.
Astonished by my behaviour,
People began to question me;
Question me about my “surprising” change.
I’d say Venice. Gondola ride over the Grand Canal: magical. ^_^
Magnetised to Mother Earth
Yet yearning to be one with the Mistress in the Sky,
Who shimmers with the sequins adorned
On Her mysterious dark guise.
