SWINGING WITH THE MOODS

In psychology, a mood is an affective state. In contrast to emotions or feelings, moods are less specific, less intense and less likely to be provoked or instantiated by a particular stimulus or event. Moods are typically described as having either a positive or negative valence. Continuous change in mood is known as mood swings.

The only swings I hate most,
That are mood swings,
It's nothing to boast,
That I am unable to understand where my heart flings.

My hormones playing today,
Bringing ambivalence,
Without leading any way,
Demanding urgent vigilance.

Sometimes unthinking,
Sometimes overthinking
Sometimes negative,
Sometimes positive.

Creates tides in heart,
With brimming eyes
Or playing with heart,
With smiling eyes.

Struggling the world inside,
Searching for gleams,
Present inside,
And trying to build up my dreams.

The day I will come to know,
How to control the hell of confusing swing,
Continuously moving to and fro,
Will be the best thing.

  1. Aparna !
    Any good poet makes his/her literary works of extraordinary deep feeling and expresses these feelings through a medium of poems.
    The kinds of words you choose play a significant role in the effect they cause on the readers. Thus YOU yes you succeeded to play with readers mind.
    God bless.

  2. Yeah mood swings are there in all ages. I have also mood swings. But one thing is definite. Positive mood swing is joyous. Obviously negative is sad and we dont want.

    You have taken a good topic. Let all say about it. For me I can say that after studying scriptures, my mood swing is considerably less. For that I am thankful to my interest in studies of Bhagavad Gita, Upanishad and Patanjali yoga sutras.

    Nothing religious but these are books on science of mind.. Stilling the mind. I have caught it.
    Thank you for bringing this topic.
    Best wishes

      1. You are always welcome. With age a person learn. That is why we say: Life teaches us.
        Therefore under the guidance of Guru, students learn. That is what we get to know from ancient Texts. Before starting live, students were sent to Gurukul for 12 years. So at childhood, one got to learn how to handle the life.
        Elders must always guide children and behave friendly with children always and in every situation.
        I wish you every success in life. All your desires be fulfilled.
        God bless you.😊
