What Do I Do?

Updated: Jan 30, 2021

A poem by Aarthy Iyengar


When difficulty blocks my shades,

disabling me to ahead of me look.

Oh! What do I do?

With basil, salt and tomatoes, I cook.


When life is full of struggles,

with no choice, no chance.

Oh! What do I do?

I up the volume of my song and dance.


When sadness chokes the throat,

like a big tablet tries to cling.

Oh! What do I do?

Loudly my heart-out I sing.


When the path I walk on,

locks around the feet with emotional hurdles.

Oh! What do I do?

Go to the pet and treat myself with cuddles.


When life shocks me,

beyond my capacity, so I faint.

Oh! What do I do?

Take to creativity, with brushes I paint.


When life's foggy,

these are my ways to cope.

Therapy of my own!

When roads end, with no visible scope.
