It’s summer again

For Writer’s Island combining the prompts of Impulse , Betrayal and Liberation:

This feeling of euphoria and ecstasy

Has turned me into someone I know not;

Strangely liberating is this moment

Knowing that I dictate my life;

Too long have I wallowed in depression

Suppressed by self-doubt and expectations

Of others;

There is free air around now

And a glorious summer day


For me to fill in the hours

With fun, music, laughter, love;

I have smiled at strangers today

And watched their surprise and joy

While smiling back

What joy there is in spreading cheer;

There is adventure in the air

I can sniff it, almost smell it now

A feeling of mirth and joy

Understanding that being me

Isn’t a betrayal of another’s expectations;

Laughter has found its place again

As I glory

At being alive

At simply being me


Rather than what someone wants me to be

  3. Amen, Chennai, and welcome back to the sunny side. If you’re smiling at people in India, I know the response well, and it lights up life. There is nothing as bright as a frown going to a smile in India.

    Thank You Richard. It seems like you do know a bit of India, you are right, it is quite a heartening sight at times
