Not All Days in Life are Equal

Author Interview
Mehrzaad Mogrelia Author Interview

A Quest Called Life is a collection of poems that explore the emotions and moments that shape our lives. What serves as your inspiration while writing poetry?

This was actually my first time writing any form of poetry. I have never attempted to write poetry as I believed that I was not adept at writing it as I was writing maybe, a murder mystery or a detective thriller.

However, with the way the situation has been during lockdown with deaths happening each day and people losing hope to make something out of the opportunities in life, I decided to pen down a collection of poems that would inspire people and help them to look at life from a different perspective during different phases of life.

Hence, the lockdown situation was my inspiration behind penning these poems down.

My favorite poem from the collection is ‘Trust’. Do you have a favorite poem from this anthology?

My favourite poem from this anthology is ‘The First Milestone.’

I have always been a firm believer of ‘A great start is half the battle won.’ Hence, when we do happen to get to that first milestone, we take our first step closer to our eventual goal. That first successful step is enough to charge us up and march on till we get to our eventual goal.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your poetry?

Simply have a different/develop their own perspective of looking at life during its different phases.

I would like my readers to remember that not all days in life are equal. Hence, we must never be too over the moon when we achieve success nor dwell in excessive sorrow when we face failure. The key to happiness is always treating success and failures equally.

Do you plan to publish more collections of poetry?

Another anthology is currently in progress and will soon be out. I will further update my readers when I happen to complete it and I hope that the next one will be loved even more than my debut book.

Our life is defined by the emotions we experience, moments we have and people that we meet along the way. This anthology encompasses some of those emotions, moments and influence of people that help us shape the path of our lives in a positive or negative way. The poems are a series of free-flowing letters from the author’s older self to the younger self giving a voice to the various experiences that the author has encountered first hand or observed from the close quarters of life.
