An Ode to My Words

This poem is a journey of me, my words, and the universe.

You – Yourself

Be you with all the words you listened to.
Be you with all the words that lessened the fright that halted you from being bright.


Be you with all the words that made you recognize your inner glow.


Be you with all the words that helped you realize your life’s finner flow.

Be you with all the words that made you better.

Be you with all the words that made you the go-getter.


Be you with all the words that hurt you.


Be you with all the words that magically spurt you.

Be you with all the words that made you smile.


Be you with all the words that made you go the extra mile of spreading the smile to others who need it more than you.


Be you with all the words that paved a path to your identity.


Be you with all the words that made you respectable in your fraternity.

Be you with all the words that made you blossom with joy as you rejoiced once for an awesome toy.

Be you with all the words that resonated with your soul.

Be you with all the words that blessed you a way to your goal.


Be you with all the words that reflected on you as a whole.


Be you with all the words that made you suit life’s every role.


Be you with all the words that made you the soulful energy that gave you and your life the best synergy.


Be you with all the words that gave you your uniqueness.


Be you with all the words that transformed your weakness.


Be you with all the words that help you build your life with all its strife.
Yet remember to be you, with all the words that moulded you and helped you emerge as a victor despite all the unyielding factors that made you just the spectator.


Be you with all the words that make you the beautiful you.


Be you with all the words that make your life more fulfilling and fruitful for you.


Be you with all the words you write

as with it, you can build a world that is right and made just for you.

    The last two lines take the cake. Loved the rendition and interpretation of the prompt, as we are nothing without our words and voice.

  5. Nice words, Sivaranjini.
    I share your views. We can create a great world by the power of our thoughts & words.
    The best positive version of us – just be.
    Be with the words- own them & they become your and everyone’s reality.

  6. We are all a summation of the experiences we have had and how we react accordingly and hence how our words are shaped. I am glad you used this theme to bring out the strong message of ‘Be You’. If everyone learns the art of being comfortable with who they are, nothing better than that…
    Thank you so much for being a part of the #UMeUBlogHop

  8. Words shape us in umpteen ways. Be you – the repetitive usage had a chanting effect in the poem . Awesome! Words, words , everywhere- you have highlighted their importance beautifully. Brilliant.

  9. In the race of going with the flow of the nature many tend to start imitating others that make them to shift their foundations too. The message in the poetry is too good, Be You. And once this is set then no one has to look anywhere for any sort of comparision.

  10. Quoting Dr. Seuss, “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

    Loved your take Ranjini. it’s the daily words of affirmation.
