Perfect Guide in Life - Inner Expressions : Poetry

Managing our emotions is a very difficult task as our emotions are likely to be influenced by others' actions and the circumstances prevailing around us. If mastered, then it can help one to fight against all odds. There are situations where we need to control our emotions for example, in our work culture; we come across all walks of people there, and therefore we may face many moods and emotions related to them.

Expressing our feelings and thoughts makes one self different from others. If there was a day marked only to express what you feel about life, then a single day may not be enough for me whereas few others may convey it in few lines. We can understand our inner expressions and need to careful of it not to be influenced by the outer world. 

We have expressed the dilemma of life is resolved by inner expressions through poetry. The below poetry form is Villanelle. A Villanelle is a nineteen-line poem consisting of a very specific rhyming scheme: aba aba aba aba aba abaa.

The first and the third lines in the first stanza are repeated in alternating order throughout the poem, and appear together in the last couplet (last two lines).

Puzzled I look around.

Mirror displays hazed picture, I hear

Identify your core ground.

Judgmental Strangers make me astound,

Whom to believe, I stress; 

Puzzled I look around.

False opinions hound.

Self-belief echoes back.

Identify your core ground.

Peace is nowhere to be found.

Jigsaw life, no map to resolve,

Puzzled I look around.

Dishonest voices whenever impound,

Sturdy inner voice shoots up to say

Identify your core ground.

Baffled outer world looks unsound

Now I trust inward expression  

Puzzled I look around(to)

Identify your core ground.

    And you're so right, we shouldn't be influenced by the outer world. That lil voice inside of us is giving us a cue, and sometimes, paying attention to that voice helps a lot!
