Onism #NewNormal #A2Z


(Danish) The awareness of how little of the world you’ll experience; 

The frustration of being stuck in just one body that inhabits only one place at a time

YOLO is the keyword is it 

But is once enough

is this one time enough

the years subtracted in sleep

in illness, in fear, in heartbreak

and now pandemic

is it not subtracting 

from my once a lifetime 

chance at life!


This is my 6th #AtoZ, read the posts from previous challenges HERE.

  1. How true! I had such plans for the last year...poof. Now this year...variants. Thankfully, we write and create, which sustains us.

  2. Its nice to learn words that have such deep meanings. Thanks for posting new words everyday.

  3. What a lovely words and what a truly sad thought. We are just a drop in the mighty ocean and there's so much of the world that we will not be able to experience.

  4. Onism! New word for me. Thank you for sharing this, Pooja

  5. Onism. I learnt a new word today and it sounds so familiar. Strange.

  6. Loved learning a new word.

  7. This is so true. It feels like a giant detour in the jorney of life. And I like the word onism!

  8. I have this feeling many a times. But I did not not know the word for it. Glad I know now!
