#ExcerptWeek – Emerging From Shadows by Balroop Singh

This afternoon, I’d like to welcome Balroop Singh to The Write Stuff. Balroop is sharing an excerpt from her book, Emerging from Shadows, and I know you are going to enjoy it, and will share it far and wide. Welcome, Balroop!



Torrential thoughts stir the ghosts of past
Throttling pain feeds on grisly graves
Pushing past away, I continue to thrive
In the rhythm of throbbing life

Life that seems scrupulously seamless
Having sustained stormy waves
Craves for calm waters and sunshine
Nurturing the hope… clouds would subside

Swaying droplets of indifferent love
Stand sprinkled all around
The charade of connection continues
Evoking detest, dissent and disenchantment 

Sharp shards of shattered emotions
Pierce as I try to gather those sensations
Wilderness walks with me
Yet a dim, discrete light beckons…

Rise from those dumps of depression!
Bury those personal regrets deep inside!
Focus on self-healing, self-love
Only trust can keep you alive.

Miniscule moments of hope awning around
Floating like bubbles but burst without a sound
Duress of living with mixed thoughts
Flying on the wings of optimism I thrive!

    • Thanks a TON Vishnu…hope carries us to the horizon, the flight may be slow, the alleys may be dark but we fly with faith that propels our thoughts. I am delighted to hoard your pearls of appreciation. Stay blessed! 🙂


  2. Your poetry stirs me deeply, Balroop. As I read it, I see you with head thrown back, eyes closed, and arms outstretched to the cosmos, smiling as you accept all the good the universe has to offer. You inspire me, as you inspire so many ❤
