Why does Your Life Feel Dull and Empty

Why you feel dull and empty

By Riches AvenuePublished 5 months ago 1 min read

In shadows cast by weary days,

A question whispers through the haze,

Why does your life feel dull and empty?

A search for meaning, lost and tempting.

Once vibrant dreams now fade away,

Colors muted, skies turned gray,

The spark within, it dimly glows,

But where's the path that truly shows?

Perhaps it's in the hurried race,

Pursuing goals that leave no space,

For simple joys, for heartfelt laughter,

In endless striving, what's the hereafter?

Or could it be the weight we bear,

Expectations heavy, hard to bear,

Comparison's curse, a constant foe,

That steals the joy we used to know.

In the pursuit of worldly gain,

We trade our peace, we count the pain,

Forgetting that the beauty lies,

In moments small, in love's surprise.

So let us pause, let's take a breath,

Release the chains of life's duress,

Embrace the stillness, find the grace,

Within the silence, find your place.

Rediscover wonders all around,

In nature's song, in sights and sounds,

In friendships true and love's embrace,

Rekindle joy, restore your grace.

For life is not a hollow shell,

It's in the moments, we weave it well,

So let your heart, with purpose, fill,

And watch the dullness start to still.

Embrace the journey, seek the light,

Illuminate your soul's delight,

And in this dance, dullness will flee,

Revealing life's true majesty.
