COMING TO TERMS

Coming to terms with an issue
Is a process in itself.

First, your irritation for it,
Which develops into a frustration.

Next, trying to figure out
the black sheep of affections.
In the beginning,
You only notice the injustice of the circumstance.

But then,
You see your stains,
Accepting which, is a Herculean task.

Next,
From the annals of memory,
dig out facts and truth,
to support it.

Then,
to feel guilty, self- pity.

Then someone comes,
And shakes you up:
“Cheer up!”
and you come around
From self- centredness to self- awareness.

You cannot change the world.
Nor the people,
nor the circumstances.
Let’s rest the matter
And get on with life,
You say.

Coming to terms with an issue
Is a process in itself.
