The Dilemma of biases

A power within, some days subtle and some days nudging

I explore what is amiss peeping through a stream of thoughts

And some days a provocation of “Who am I” challenges my awareness of myself

Like a flame with three different colours, I burn within and the blue expands further more

How a few of us have found ourselves, intrigues me to the core

Some days I think in awe, A Durga, A Kali, A Saraswati, A Laxmi

How simply our scriptures put together the innate power into different forms

The power that transforms one into a nurturer!

“Forgiveness” is the vigor as I see it more than the seemingly divine “Selflessness”

I should forgive myself for not doing enough!

I should forgive myself for being too accommodative,

when I become nurturer at my own expense!

I should forgive others for the biases that I come across

in my roles of a daughter, a mother, a daughter in law for choosing one over the other!

Just being “Me” could lead to the blessings of an open heart..

So, I carefully tread the path to overcome any judgements passed

Being mindful of the peace that forgiveness brings yet being firm on the stance for being “Me”
