Essentials of Living: Neelam Saxena Chandra (Poetry)

Neelam Saxena Chandra

Writing has a therapeutic charm!

If you are passing through the realms of happiness,
You sprinkle joy as you write,
Making the entire milieu glow.

If you are passing through the pangs of pain,
The process of writing cleanses your heart,
And you smile again!

If you are crossing the zones of nothingness,
So many philosophies of life
Open up in front of your eyes
Like a cherished treasure!

Yes, writing is a stream,
That takes away all the murky ugliness with its flow
And paints your life golden!

Writing is cathartic,
Specially in these pandemic times,
When everyone seems to be losing hope!
It’s like a boat that will steer you 
Through this tempest!
