Uncertainty

Hi!

Welcome everyone!

It gives me great pleasure to announce that this post is yet another collaborative effort. The only difference is that this time, it’s going to be a poetry.

Because, interestingly, this collab has a remarkably similar backstory to my previous joint venture.

For the poem actually came to me in it’s raw, free verse state from my friend/colleague, Dr. Harshali More. And like my sister, she too wanted it ‘proofread’

(Yeah, I am popular. Just deal with it, won’t you?)

And, as usual, I did more than what I had been asked for.

(Okay, so maybe I am being pompous to the point of being a narcissist by now…)

Anyways, by the time I was done ‘editing’ I had ended up modifying the poem well enough to make it virtually unrecognisable from it’s predecessor. And that was how this ‘collab’ was born.

I just hope that you guys think it’s good enough…. because, as always, I have tried adding a bit of a personal spin to it. All feedback appreciated as always! 😊

The Uncertainty

I am the one who crawls inside your head,

burrowing thy subconscious,

Chilling your spine as I descend,

Yes, I am the one harbouring fear!

.

The one making your mind wander in a circle,

making you feel stuck,

Tying your hands with apprehension,

For I am the one breeding frustration!

.

I can make you go mad,

redden you with rage, tormenting thy brain,

Distancing the hearts as I progress,

Yes, I am the one cradling anger!

.

The racing heart, that adrenaline rush,

the pearls of sweat over thy brow,

Transforming your goals into a journey,

For it’s me who makes a challenge one!

.

Those tiny bits of excitement and joy,

the vista of endless possibilities,

Letting you feel top of the world

Yes, I am the one in sync with surprise !

.

The one who keeps you on your path,

pumping you full with curiosity,

Awaiting action for the moments to come,

For it’s me sharing traits with hope !

.

The butterflies in your tummy,

the feeling of elation,

Trusting someone implicitly for life,

Yes, I am the one heralding true love!

.

Well, I have been named more than once,

Then be it ambiguity, a chance, even an ‘I don’t know‘!

Blaming me for thy confusing future,

For it’s me making you think a lot more!

.

But why should you be so certain of things?

When it’s simply no fun, simply no thrill?

Laying the foundation of new beginnings, 

It’ll be me bringing opulence to thy!

.

So, hence life to you I advise,

don’t you miss any shade of mine,

‘Cuz if there’s a thing you’d be certain about,

It’ll always be me, THE UNCERTAINTY !

– Harshali & Soumitra

  2. The poem is short but carries a lot of meaning if scrutinized properly.

    Such a profound way of writing. Love the beginning part of it( I am the one who crawls inside your head)
    and the end part of the poem just made it look real again( It’ll always be me, THE UNCERTAINTY ! )

    Thanks for giving me that mindset about emotion as you said in your poem explanation.

    I still remain  the simple blogger…..

  3. This was something very different and yet perfectly related to. The choice of words and metaphors is wonderful and makes everything seem so realistic. I could feel my eyes moisten while reading some lines. What a masterpiece!! Kudos to you!!
