A Second Chance

Updated on December 20, 2015

Shaloo Walia is an astrologer and tarot reader. She is an Art of Living teacher and also an ardent Krishna devotee and a follower of ISKCON.

For years I believed in being alone

Regretting the past and for fears unknown

Blaming myself for all my faults

With a frozen heart kept in a vault.

Loneliness has been my constant companion

Living a life without love and passion

The void he left wasn’t my greatest loss

Aversion to love was my albatross.

Confronting my fears is my biggest challenge

It’s still not too late to repair the damage

Life is kind to offer a second chance

My heart skips a beat with your every glance.

Feeling loved though the words yet unspoken

Your care is mending this heart still broken

A long way to go, the future still unknown

Yet overjoyed to call your heart my own.

“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.”

— Sarah Dessen

      It is such a beautiful thing in finding one's life purpose! The 'old' then enriches us in a very unique way as we move forward, still stumbling, still falling, but with a lesser burden and a much stronger Heart.

      Your poetry is beautifully written; rhymes well and with a self-evident message or experience. Carry on!

      Aww – Shaloo, let me give you a warm hug first of all. Wonderful poem! I'll tell you something, Time is a great healer. It heals all the wounds. Yep, believe it or not...give it a shot. Explore. Life is beautiful, my dear Friend. Not all are like rotten apples (he he).

      Have faith… have courage… Sri Krishna always looks upon their devotees with utmost compassion. Blessings :)

      Thank you manatita! Some people are blessings, some are lessons but in the end, you learn from both!

      Beautiful Swalia. Very well written piece here. I like what you wrote back to Manatita; some are lessons, some are blessings. I think that is true. And time and faith heals our wounds. I agree with Surabhi on that. :)
