When I Am Just Me

August 14, 2015 | By

A beautiful ode and a tribute to the relentless creative and artistic spirit of the human mind, the bodies and the beings that sing, dance, paint, write.


A talented painter, the painting that is surreal

A talented singer, the voice that unites mankind,
A talented writer, the words that unshackle the mind,
A talented musician, the music that makes one seek,
A talented actor, the silent eyes that speak,
A talented painter, the painting that is surreal,
A talented photographer, the shots that capture life’s appeal.
A talented dancer, the movements that are grace personified,
A talented sculptor, the statue that seems like a gift from paradise.

All these talented people out there,
Their talents are gifts bestowed rare.
I enjoy that voice, that music, that painting, that play,
How fortunate they are I silently say.
Blessed they are with a fate divine,
I dare not realize that somewhere along the line,
They discarded their fear and embraced their true self,
They honed their ability and broke their shell.
If only I too would stop wishing and plunge into activity,
Accepting what I possess and proclaim my creativity.

Surbhi Sarna is a children’s writer based out of Bhubaneswar. A biochemist by training, the world of children’s literature appealed more to her imagination than the cold precision of science. Although she discovered children’s writing rather serendipitously but now it has become a serious pursuit for her and a very enjoyable one! A few of her short stories have been published as illustrated storybooks and several others have appeared in various dailies. When she is not writing or reading, she loves to meditate and spend time in nature. Sometimes she can be seen hugging trees. She blogs at surbhisarna.wordpress.com
