Transcend by Aparma Reddy at



written by: Aparna Reddy



My arms
tried reaching
the sky
in vain
I then, gave
my mind
wings to fly

I steered
the clouds,
with the
of my will

I let go
to find
new paths,
each breath
lead to
a new height

My heart
soared high
with the tune
of the wind

I exhaled

The spirit
glowed bright,
as if
it touched
the rays
of the sun,

I inhaled.



“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven..”

The mind has the potential to conquer many things that seem impossible, with positive positioning.

Aparna Reddy is an educator and poet, based in California, USA. Writing poetry is her hobby and she enjoys writing in verse anything that touches her heart. As a busy professional and mother, writing poetry has helped her in meditating and relaxing. She believes reading and writing poetry is cathartic. She thinks contemplation is a great exercise for the mind: It connects the intangible mind with the tangible outside world. This connection, if genuine can produce great insights about our lives and the world around us. Some of her poems have been published in online literary magazines such as Muse India and Spillwords Press.
