What To Write?

This poem is as a result of collaboration between Maria And I. We were chatting and she suggested we should write something together but then we couldn’t decide what we should write about. So it just went from there and we came up with this. It was a pleasure writing this with her. Here is the final piece:

We can write about betrayal.
Or we can write about snow and fairies
We can write about a deep pit of sorrow
or we can write about rains that fall like mercies.

You are right, We can write about anything,
We can write about how life throws curve balls at you,
And then leaves you around to wallow in your misery
Or we can write about how beautiful it is,
The very small things,
Sunsets and the sunrises,
Flowers and the trees,
Birds and the bees,
Shooting stars, moon and the sea

We can write about love– the ever clichéd, vast word containing worlds
Or we can write about friends, who turn strangers, and strangers who turn foes.
We can write about sadness, how it gnaws one from inside
Bitter truths and false hopes, and how between it life flows.
We can write about anything, you see, as long as we can find light around
For when it turns pitch black, we won’t be left with even this.

You are right my friend, For writing is a spill way,
The words flood, With emotional tides,
Some times low, sometimes high rise,
It’s in these moments where we can’t do anything else,
We find words and pen them down,
For when darkness takes over, Even words seem to run short,
No light, no hope.

For the darkness is so so bad,
It leaves you around with all things sad.
And then you sit in the corner, waiting for some light to pour.
Until then tears are your best friend to hold.

Tears wash your face and stay with you,
As the loneliness tears every inch inside of you.
You scream and shout,
To let it all out
You hurt yourself,
You let it bleed,
Till all you are left with, are wounds and peels.

Get Lost. Get Found

All of us get lost…somewhere, at some point in our lives. We all hope to be found, by someone, by anyone.

We all get lost, sometimes deliberately. Hoping someone would be brave enough to come find us. We hide in the places only we know. And we leave behind clues for people to come find us. But not everyone can figure out those clues. We get lost and hope that someone, somewhere would miss us and come looking for us, venture after us to bring us back home. That is how some of us validate ourselves. We get lost deliberately hoping to be found. That is what some of us do to feel loved. To feel needed. To feel wanted. We get lost.

And all we can do is, pray to dear God, that someone would love us enough to bring us back.

We get lost to get found.

Say It Like It Is

Daily Prompt: I Believe

Tell us three things that you believe in your heart to be true. Tell us three things you believe in your heart to be false.

____________________________________________________________________

Things I consider true or right to my heart are:

(I know I’ve mentioned this quiet a lot before but as this prompt requires I have to say this again.)

1-There is no such thing as accidents.

Everything happens for a reason. Each and everything that happens leads to that one point in your life which is supposed to happen in the first place. Which leads me to my second point which is:

2-Believe and Faith

For one to believe in the first point you have got to have believe and faith. Faith in the higher providence that everything is going to be fine and Believe in yourself that YOU can do it. You’ll make through it all.

3-People do change

I have seen people change. Whether for better or worse that’s a separate discussion but people DO change. Human being is a very strong animal, If we try we can turn our life, attitude or personality around a 360 degree.

Things I consider False or bad:

1-There is no such thing as personal choice.

What’s wrong is wrong and what’s right is right. No compromises on that. You can try to go over it in any way you want but it doesn’t change the fact that its wrong.

2- You have no right to Judge a person
Judging is wrong no matter what. I have been a victim of this and I know very well how it feels to be judged without being aware of the full situation or information. I get it, its in human nature to judge, you can’t deny that but to judge a person and BASING YOUR OPINION on it is wrong unless you are aware of the whole picture.

3-Doing drugs is just wrong

I have seen people explain to me oh I do drugs because I’m going through some shit in my life. And usually, most of the time “That Shit” is not as big of a deal as they are making it out to be. I’ve been through a lot in my life and I’ve seen people go through much worse but they are still holding on. Drugs are just a way to avoid problems, and avoiding problems doesn’t make them go away. They just keep getting piled up.  I know everybody has a different way to deal with a particular problem and I totally respect that but If there is a healthier way to deal with it, then why not choose that?
I know it takes a lot of effort but drugs are never the right answer.

I know daily prompt asked for three things but this matter is very near and true to my heart so I’m going to say something very briefly about it:

Religion doesn’t kill people. People kill people and they just need something or someone to blame for their sadistic ways. I’ve heard people say “Oh if there was no religion there would be peace everywhere in the world.” If you seriously believe that, you are the most naive person ever. There is always going to be greed for money and land to fight for, which is the most basic reason why countries are fighting each other, why people are killing people. Do you really think if religion wasn’t there it would go away??? Joseph Stalin was religion-less, did it stop him from killing thousands of people?
It’s not at all about having a religion or not, you can be an atheist or belong to any religion whatsoever, I don’t have a problem with that but please don’t blame religion for this world’s twisted ways.

And I want to end my post with this line said by someone:
“We are sent on this earth with a purpose. Life is a test. And all of these things are its questions. Ever imagined a test without questions ?”

It’s All About Trying…

Daily Prompt: What giant step did you take where you hoped your leg wouldn’t break? Was it worth it, were you successful in walking on the moon, or did your leg break?

_________________________________

Honestly speaking I have never been a big risk taker. The reason why it is so is not because I don’t like to take risks or I don’t want to take risks. It’s just that I never had a moment in my life so far where I had to take one. My life had been smooth in this department at least and I’m thankful for that. Everything I have done in my life, any milestones, any occasions or whatever it was almost like it was pre-planned by God. I never really had a moment of doubt about what profession I want to choose or in which line of studies I want to go. A little confused ,Yes sure, but everything  did work out for me in the end. A little confusion is part of life we just have to find our own way to deal with it.

For me it was almost like God had laid down a rail track for me and I like a train took that path and it lead me to exactly where I am supposed to be. It’s all about having FAITH in Him and Believing in Yourself .
Having faith that everything that happens is for a reason and for your own good. And Believe in yourself that YOU can do it. With the right amount of determination and effort everything is possible.

But the most important part is to believe that if a particular thing hasn’t worked out for you, it’s because it is for your own good and something better is on your way. Learn to LET GO and look forward to a new adventure in life. I know it’s not as easy as it sounds, but you gotta try.

Because Trying is all we can do…

A Matter Of Perspective

Perspective…Google says that it is “a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.”

For most of us what others think of us or talk about us is the perspective that matters. I used to believe the same but as of today I beg to differ. I was watching this drama and I liked the perspective with which it approached the concept of rumors and gossips.

We live in a society where “what would people say if…..”  has killed more dreams than I can count. We are so worried about our perspective in everybody else’s eyes that along the way we may have started to lose ourselves and not even know it.

There is this pressure to be Perfect. If not perfect than at least close to be one. Worst thing about it is not the pressure of being perfect,  there is nothing wrong with pursuing perfection , the worst and the most saddest part is the pressure to be perfect in front of people. How we present ourselves in front of others is all what matters, doesn’t matter how and what we are alone or what demons we hide inside of ourselves. The sadness , the despair , the hopelessness.

I see myself and what I am from inside doesn’t reflect of what I am outside. Not absolutely or completely but to some extent, it is true.

Then there is GOSSIPS & RUMORS….I feel like our whole entire existence revolves around it now. The magazines, the newspapers , the Internet , 75% of it is filled with rumors and gossips. How much of it do you think is actually based on facts?

Studying in a university I, myself am guilty as charged of gossiping and believing in rumors. I’m sorry to admit but it was one of our favorite things to do. I enjoyed hearing about other people flings and affairs, personal drama and even religious beliefs. How much of it was based around facts, I can’t be absolutely sure. (Surprisingly most of stuff ‘I’ heard did turn out to be true but that doesn’t change the fact that I was involved in gossiping about other people behind their back)

What I can’t understand though is why are we, me , so interested in other people lives??? What they are doing, what they are wearing, who they are dating, who they are fighting with etc etc. I fail to understand this. We have this need to know all that stuff about other people but I don’t know why.

The only explanation I can come up with is that maybe we try to be so involved in other people’s lives because we are fed up with our own. We need an escape from our own lives at times and the best way to ignore our life problems is to plunge ourselves into other people problems. Thinking and talking about other people gives us a chance to keep ourselves from peeking into our own collars. What do you think? I may not entirely be right but that’s the only SANE explanation I’m able to come up with.

The reason why I took the route to gossips and rumors is that we ourselves are at times subject of a particular rumor or gossip and why do we care so much what people think of us?

Why only what we think of ourselves is not enough?

You know the truth, I know the truth. Screw other people. But the problem is Its easier said than done.

Though you and I, we can take this one step at a time, first by being comfortable in our own skin. As long as you think that you are a good person , as long as you are comfortable in wearing what you like, as long as you believe you are doing the right thing, as long as you are strong enough to handle it and as long as people or the person you love see you for who you really are. That is all what matters, Doesn’t it?

EXHALE

Daily Prompt: Exhale
http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/10/07/daily-prompt-safety/

Tell us about a time when everything seemed to be going wrong — and then, suddenly, you knew it would be alright.

___________________________________

There are moments in our lives which define us, which makes us who we are, which shape our personalities and pave the way for rest  of our life.

But this doesn’t have to be just a moment, it can be a collection of moments, collection of experiences, mistakes and lessons.
The key to surviving all of it is to “Just keep going”.

As I always say just have “Have Faith & Believe In Yourself

Have FAITH that everything is going to be alright and BELIEVE that you’ll make through it all.

When you breathe, you inhale and you exhale, but every single time that you do that, you are a little bit different from the one before. We are always changing. And it is important to know that there are some changes you can’t control and that there are others that you can. So just go with the flow.
Image

Always remember that, Things fall part so that other things can fall together.
Image

Just keep your head straight and try to find sense in things. Everything Happens For A Reason.
I firmly believe that, There is no such things as accidents.
Every breathe you take, every decision you make, every step you take ultimately leads you to your destiny.

So, Breathe, Inhale and exhale because:
