Purpose – Poetry

“Live the Life of Your Dreams: Be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of others.”
― Roy T. Bennett, the Light in the Heart

With this inspiring quote, let us get to the beautiful winning entry of the monthly writing competition held by the Poetry Club. This time, with an exceptional theme – purpose.

Congratulations to 2nd year BSc. Psychology with Education student Ananya Shetty for winning the title of ‘Poet of the month’ for January.

Purpose

It’s not written in stone

Nor in concrete

But on the sand near a beach

As the waves crash on the shore

And wipe the words you so dearly wrote

You stand up and write another in its place

It’s a different verse to adorn the shore

A new story that needs to be told

Each word leads to a different part of you

Each time written by a different form of you

But they are not who you are

They just help you stay at the beach

Just long enough to make memories on the way

         Long enough till night gives into the day.

Who are you? What’s your purpose?

These two are such intimidating questions that haunt us, especially when we face significant changes in our lives. I believe they are a closely related process – we define our purpose. It is an expression of the person we have become. At the same time, our purpose helps to explore the person we are. Our purpose is continuously evolving, and so are we.
