Poem: Questioning Mind!

Updated on September 26, 2016
Questioning Mind.
Questioning Mind. | Source


My mind is just void and blank.

With nothing flowing out for me to pen it down,

I feel like ranting away my frustrations,

But will it help me to get back my focus?

I feel so angry on myself.

Reasons that even I am not sure of any more,

Just feeling so caged and oppressed

As if my very existence is questioned.


A poem that sprouted inside the mind of the poetess during her self introspective phase.

We all have doubts about the decisions that we take in our life. Some of the decisions we are proud and some we rather speak not... this poem is not about either of those decisions, but it is about another type. One which we are proud of, but which sometimes leaves behind lingering doubts...

Hope you all will enjoy reading it.

So many questions were asked by others.

Jarring my mind and sucking my happiness.

I sometimes feel they are right,

But my love of life says otherwise.

When friends of mine are questioning my gains,

The one who will taste the success at all stakes;

rise up high with loads of money to play,

is sitting inside with just family to call as a gain!

Questioning my family as a gain or pain,

I fear whether what they said is true of me being naïve?

Agreed I am not independent financially,

But happiness is not bought by any money!

My love says he is proud of me,

a being selfless and a devoted pristine.

A wife and a mother to the core of heart,

who is dedicated to keep the family intact.

I feel happy to know my family is strong.

The lingering doubt fades into the background, for now.

But the question still echoes in my mind some how.

Choosing my family over my career … Am I being naïve? Am I being wrong?

      That is but another really tough discision for a woman ! A few years ago in America , began a "back to the family " movement where many people decided to give up the "second " parental worker and suffer the financial hardships ! I think those who do that are awesome people , The stay at home mom or dad is my new hero !........Ed

      I think as women we often wrestle with the balance between career and family. Even though we are empty nesters, I still try to take time to keep our family and relationship going strong -- it is a top priority. Very nicely said!

      It seems to me you have what is truly important in the proper order. Your love of family is what sustains you and although those questions and doubts are only natural, that strength and bond of family makes it all worth while.

      Children always come first, then when they leave the nest, it's your turn, in between time while they're in school you can take online courses to be ready for that long awaited career. Best Wishes. Lovely hub..

      I don't normally vote "beautiful" but this inspired that.

      I always like to look back at my mistakes and question. But inevitably I end up looking at my family in the here and now. Whatever it took to make them so beautiful was obviously ok. So I suffered at my own hand, I would do it again for my family.

      Thanks for an awesome hub.
