Boredom

Spread the love

acknowledge

Ever has thou wondered;
How boredom dost occur?
A spell that pulls thee under;
Makes all else seem a blur.

Seeps into the mind and soul;
Bringing grievances – complaints.
Lest it spins out of control;
Voice the need of restraint.

Ever has thou wondered;
How boredom is innate.
Learn to rise up and conquer;
Mold passion into shape.

Boredom has a pattern odd;
From every angle it is flawed.

 

 

“I would rather die of passion than of boredom.”
Vincent van Gogh

    I wonder whether boredom is an affliction of the young? For me I just haven’t time for that for every project I complete means I can start a new one! Yes, bored people must be flawed.

    It is an interesting thought – is it our self talk that leads us to boredom. Is it our imagination maybe running wild with things we could be doing as opposed to being stuck where we are. That is when I feel the more boredom is when I feel trapped.

      PS: I agree, boredom is when one feels like they’re trapped.

      I believe that High School Agers–where I have encountered the most boredom and therefore had to analyze it–is more like what happens in the Sleeping Beauty–teenagers need to sleep and mope a lot until they integrate the male and female in themselves–a Jungian reading. That’s the wake up, perk up kiss!

    Sanaa, I luv your wisdom on Boredom, it does have a strong grasp and a sneaky entrance, I think though, as we grow older, and understand ourselves, and our potential, boredom becomes a stranger rather than a companion.

    Much love…

    This was a treat. loved the use of old language – I can sense that you had fun composing the poem.
    Boredom is such a big topic. Difficult to define actually.

      PS: It was rather mind boggling to compose at first.. till I landed upon that quote 🙂

    “Boredom has a pattern odd;
    From every angle it is flawed….” Precisely!! I realise it’s a choice — my choice — and I must consciously choose to view the world through a positive lens.
    Bravo….so well written, Sanaa ☺
