Eyes of Optimism and Pupils of Faith

About the book This book is a collection of poems that explore what it means to be a human, a soul and an entity in this life. I know deep down, each person is here for a specific reason and it is not that easy for anybody to realise what that reason is. The world, is changing at even a faster pace now, so many of us want to attach to what was, so many are attached to what is and many are could be looking towards to what is becoming. Which is the evolving human consciousness, of who we are. In so many cases, we think we have all the answers - in so many cases we think we have none. This book of poetry wants to dance in the middle of such dilemma, better yet, of such awakening that is happening in all of us. It’s only right, we gradually wake up, as we’ve been asleep our whole lives. As we wake up from our habitual ways of being, as we begin to question more and more, we can’t help but move towards our soul’s expansion, it’s as though, we are all feel our evolving and want to keep up with our soul’s journey. We begin to tear down the walls, rip back the layers, unwire the wiring and draw a new painting on our life’s canvas. Since, moments when we feel connected and whole, are specifically moments we want to increase in our lives, till it becomes a part of us, better yet, who we are. The poetry in this book, is here to ignite, inspire and rekindle that connection, like returning back to nature or looking deeply in the mirror and seeing your soul, excited to live each moment in front of you and to contribute here in some way.
