Attitude is everything: A poem by Sujatha Sairam

Some days are really tough, 
How I wish they weren’t so rough. 
Why so much of chaos and turbulence, 
Mind and heart seem to be losing patience. 
A feeling that all strength has deserted us, 
Looking forward to an anchor to tow us. 

Will no one resolve this incertitude? 

Until I heard my inner voice rattling me, 
The answer was somewhere within me-
My attitude is everything is what I heard.
I just had to come to terms with life, 
Stand like a rock against all strife. 
I had to rise up with my wave of thoughts, 
Helping me row forward to reach my destined shores.
