keep repeating themselves
in my life.

is it that
I have not yet learnt
or understood
that it keeps reoccuring
with a vengeance?

do I learn
do I understand
do I let go
and move on?

am I failing
or am I not?
Is it that I am resisting
and lacking acceptance?

will I ever learn?
Will I ever conquer this
restlessness and

So many questions.....

in moments of sanity
deep down
I realize where
the answers lie!

One of my favorites, Jyotsna. I've been so tired lately, that I wonder how much more of patients I can take. Sometimes I wonder if it's there problems that bother me, or they just mirror my own?

Jyotsna said...

Pins,I know i am not alone especially since i have you as a dear friend:)!

Ram-finally i see you here!All wel my end!Still grateful to you for introducing me to blogging:)

Gulnaz-Yes,you are right,the answers keep changing and i guess our perspective changes as well with time.

You do sound tired.I do hope you bounce back with energy and vitality.It does usually happen that sensitive people absorb a lot of energies but i am sure your patients problems dont mirror your own...atleast not always!Do take care:)
