These oscillations

Certain mornings,

there are these agitations.

Like these broken sentences.

Nagging feelings

of being not good enough,

of having not achieved enough,

of having not done enough

rise and bind me,

my thoughts.

And as I close my eyes and sit

feeling these agitations,

I bring a thought

and hold on to it,

‘I am enough, I am good enough.’

Another thought gets linked to it

‘I am a human being, not human doing.’

These two thoughts

start creating a space

pushing away the agitations

creating a feeling of calm.

Another thought enters,

‘It’s okay, it’s okay. Achievements are not everything.

Sometimes, these moments of stillness are valuable too!’

More space, more calm.

And these oscillations come to a halt.
