Rising Tides

Home / Late night thoughts / Rising Tides

With more disrupted sleeps, and sleepless nights, I almost tried everything in the book of “how to beat insomnia”; from herbal infusions tea, to a warm cup of milk before going to bed, obviously reading which only led to more and more reading and much less sleeping in the process, and finally counting sheep – I don’t even want to talk about that one – until I decided to write my way to sleep.

It is of no wonder that when you are often anxious it would be hard for you to “wind down” at the end of the day, same thing goes when you are often infuriated, depressed, or feel “blue” most of the time. A clouded mind would never get some rest, and while everyone else around me is sleeping I could almost hear my thoughts vibrating inside my head, every emotion rising to meet with its stress, disappointment and wonder until it crashes down on the shores of my memory. seashells of events scattered around for me to find and explore.

As screwed up as it is, as puzzled and quizzical my life could get, patience and endurance are the key. Remember, you wait and God gives you the best. More importantly, it’s not about how long I’ve been waiting for this amazing thing to happen, for something extraordinary, so out of reach, some miracle to lift up my sinking abandoned ship, as it is about my attitude throughout this whole journey.

If you’ve been struck by lightning, and your sky clogged by the darkest of clouds, hit by heavy rain and covered by thick snow, blossom like the spring flowers, and give your tastiest and sweetest like summer’s fruits, shed your worries and pain with the falling autumn leaves. Evolve, grow, support your roots and you shall become mightier and stronger, forever pure at heart if the seed you’ve nourished is that of love.

So yes, through all its hardships, life is amazing and worth living. Those specks of love you receive will sprinkle happiness upon you and wipe all sadness away. My smile will shine my way, my laughter shall echo so the world hears it, and good shall be reciprocated my way. Treasures are but found in ruins, so let my life, with all the prejudices, all the false hopes burn to the ground, let me be reshaped, remodeled, repainted with love. Never would I be tied down to a life in a glass box, for a free spirit only belongs high in the skies.
