The Resolute You

#poetry #tanka

Dark forces lurking

Zillions of dreams buried deep

 Warblers dwelled and flew

 Heyday, fall fell, leaves fluttered

 Yet I stand tall, resolute

Life is all about ebb and flow. Some days are good, some even better but again many a times worst days happen to cross you by.

Neither happiness is forever nor are sorrows. Neither is life a bed of roses nor a bed of thorns. It is somewhere in between and that “somewhere” is hidden. It’s up to us how and where to explore that treasure which is the secret of a happy and contended life and the one who owns this emerge victorious.

So, be the “Indiana Jones” of your own life and unearth your treasure chest.

Thank you so very much for your time for reading and going through my posts ๐Ÿ˜Š.

Dunkle Mรคchte
sind in mir selbst

mein Traum sagt mir
seit der Kindheit
wo sie wohnen

ich bin in meinem Herzen
ein Kleinkind geblieben

ich will nicht mehr
als mein unbedeutendes Leben

ich will verstehen
was mir in meinem Innersten
Tag und Nacht gesagt

mit dem die Schulung meiner Seele
bin ich auf meinem Weg
alt geworden


Dark forces
are in myself

my dream tells me
since childhood
where they live

i am in my heart
remained a toddler

I do not want to any more
than my insignificant life

i want to understand
what’s inside of me
said day and night

with which the training of my soul
I’m on my way
grown old

What a lovely Tanka (5-7-5-7-7, right?)… I especially like your invitation to “explore that treasure which is the secret of a happy and contended life” – – – and I agree with you that “… the one who owns this [will] emerge victorious.” In my treasure chest are many blessings – and today I added Samreen to the chest!! โค

Very well written.

So true. Neither happy times not trying times nothing lasts forever.

I feel the best way to live a contended life is to be content with whatever you have because wants have no bound the more we have the more we want and to appreciate the little things in life.

Nice poem and short writing about “The Resolute You”
Absolutely right about life’s ups and downs.
But still in all situations if you remain calm and happy that is the most treasured in your life. Enjoyed reading it.

Well expressed….Yes life is ‘ somewhere’ between the ups and downs…but these ups and downs are the ones which provide meaning to that ‘ somewhere’ which each one of us is struggling to find .
God bless you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. Indeed, without ups and downs, somewhere won’t be created and if not created, would be impossible to find. ๐Ÿ˜Š
Thanks again for your blessings.
Wish the same for you as well!!


Yes, we want to hold on to the little happy moments, hoping that it would last forever. But when we least expect it, the unwelcome sorrow would rush in. As people say, life is a roller coaster ride. Well explained in this post.
