Being All

Nobody told the clouds to rain and shine at the same time

The sun never gave warmth of moon, though its heat gives life to all.

The ocean takes in from all that comes in  , it never has to give back to them.

The roots hold on , but the delicate leaves caters to all.

The air that breathes life in all ,still does not end the hunger to keep life on

Why if nobody is expected to do all, yet they are doing a part irreplaceable by all,

Then why expect me to be

all that you want me to be.

I too have an identity

Limits of meeting expectancy.

Still I beautifully shape shift

Fulfilling all that you wish.

In the process steering through overlapping duties

Being all at the same time.

Being  the air , the fire ,the water and  the earth for you

that gives you life ,warmth, protects and nourishes you.

To help you find the balance in your life,

Being all that I can be .

Being all at the same time.

  1. Beautiful …that’s what every woman does..balancing it all..and being forced to lose her identity …just playing roles.

  2. Wonderful thoughts beautifully penned Gayathri. Balancing everything without losing one’s identity is indeed a challenge .

    1. True Sowmya , yes its almost like having no identity as you keep flowing to between different roles, you are the one you are performing that time.But there is an identity at the core that gives intention , strength to all the balancing.
