Boredom descends,
What you do?
Maybe taking the phone,
Maybe T.V, food or anything,
Making escapism,
To eliminate boredom.

Although this approach,
Brings no good,
Only exhaustion,
And a repetition cycle,
Hard habits,
Lasting long,
And dying hard.

What’s a better way,
Is to confront it,
To embrace it,
For boredom holds,
Immense potential,
To descend wisdom,
From far and beyond,
Your current reach.

If bored,
Sit with an empty mind,
And let boredom empower you,
For mind hates it,
And come up,
Brilliant ideas,
To move your pants,
And enjoy creativity.

P.S: Thank you and deep gratitude for reading my poems. It’s a newly discovered talent in me, maybe not rhyming and good enough, but I found poetry is the best medium to express our emotions. And that’s the reason I started writing them, it frees up my mind, relaxes me, and the creative expression is deeply fulfilling. I mostly write with my feelings and experience, and not to fill the word limit, so have to include these lines in every poem as they are shorter than one one-fifty words to publish. Accept my gratitude (although I don’t have much).
