Strange Voice of my Soul

Sometimes, all we need is someone who would listen. Someone who would just be there and hear us out. Without trying to find any loopholes in what we’re saying. Even a positive response is also not needed at all. Just the acknowledgement, that we’re heard, that someone has taken our thoughts into their minds too, is enough. Maybe that’s why anonymous people, who are only a one-time acquaintance in our lives are so important.

In this world, where we don’t even know who lives two doors down on the same floor of our multi-story apartment, this stranger interaction is even more needed. But do we trust them enough? Does our social structure, our scheduling allow all that to happen? Have we completely moved out of the joint-family culture?

Strange Voice of My Soul


Who are you?
To say I'm good,
Or not so much.
Or that I've still got,
A long way to go.
Who am I?
To seek your praise,
And your flattering,
Then be sated at soul,
Reckoning to ace at it.
Who are they?
Aliens, hording their tunes,
In their own rhymes,
At their pace of life.
I welcome them all on.
'Cause they don't care,
'Cause they just listen,
And sometimes I guess
Maybe even make merry.
In the strange voice,
Of my soul.
Whether I'm any good,
Or maybe not so much.
Or I still
Have a way to go.
And that is peace,
to have them listen,
Without care.

  1. It is scary how culture and society really pulls people away from quality time being spent. My family and I started routine of picking a movie or having dinner together at a table at least once a week with no phones just us talking and honestly I’m grateful my brother thought of it. We forget in our busy lives how nice it is to connect and how much we miss each other.

    1. Yes, yes we do tend to move away from the simplicity trying to sort the web of our adulthood. And yes, that time when we don’t have nything else to think about is getting rare. Glad you found an awesome solution, โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

        . I enjoy the positivity on your blog as well as your honesty. You’re a deep thinker and I love that . A lot of the people I connect with are and it’s really inspiring and amazing to me. I enjoy these conversations because in typical life we don’t usually find people to talk like this with. I can’t express how much this site has impacted me as a writer and person :). Keep inspiring and being you because your writing is awesome my friend !
