The yearning for life

It’s not easy to let go;

To not feel the pain in your soul.

It’s not easy to pick yourself up;

To dust off, to take another step.


It’s not easy to smile in pain;

To not feel alone, not feel strain.

It’s not easy to open your heart;

To make again that first start.


It’s not easy to see things anew;

To not feel blinded by few.

It’s not easy to again nurture hope;

To hold once again the end of the rope.


Life makes it difficult sometimes to go on

and yet the yearning for it never stops.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (, by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
