I Don't Need To Be Inspired Any Longer



Hopes tends to fade away. Zeal and fervor with which I usually start something recedes with time. Every now and then I need a nudge, I need someone to tear down the illusion of assumed perfection and give me a coup d'oeil of the acrid reality. When this waning fervidness reaches a point beyond which there's no actual moving forward but an unavailing run in loops I need an instant dose of inspiration, a sugar-coated slap of embarrassment from people around which will be hard enough to push me back on race track and soft enough to not to hate them for slapping me.

But, there comes a time when I no longer need inspiration. It's always there with me. May be I'm inspired all the time. My head is deep buried in what I'm doing and I know exactly where I'm going.Like Anais Nin my dreams too are athletic in nature running way ahead of me, I need to catch up before they melt away. I don't wanna get pushed again and again, not now, and questioned and prodded like a nestling.

I guess I don't need to be inspired any longer, just supported ― Kurt Cobain, Journals



Don't say a word
not a whisper, not a silence
with little sounds
heavy citations you oft cites
do no good to me
not now, but once I needed them
so bad, they gave me something
I reckoned I never had

I am charged
excited enough to last long
in valence shell, I know the route
marked well on the map
why charge me further
once I called for it
not any longer

now I need you to tread with me
your unhurried assistance
side by side, till I cross this
stretched out sea
stand with me on that blue boat
of mine, stare with me
torrents of water and azure skies

Sometimes a mere assistance, a little support and an unconditional unhurried presence of people you love gives you enough competency to swim through any circumstances. May be you no longer require encouragement and much needed motivation but patronage is something you'll never get enough, specially of your loved ones :)

    मेघ सा विस्तृत उमड़ना चाहता था।

  3. So true! Infact any unconditional patronage is mere source of inspiration.
