Some days the skies look bluer
Some days the winds feel colder
Some days the sun looks brighter
While other days the nights feel darker.
Some days the emotions run so deep
While other days you feel so numb
Amidst all the turmoil and uncertainty
Searching for that one beakon of light
Someday we hope to be engulfed by it.
Because some days are going to be better
Some days are going to be more hopeful
We are going to be strong on some, and shattered on the others.
You’ll grow through some
While you go through some
In the hope that one day you’d be a better version of yourself
That someday you’ll not have to search for the beakon of light, but you will become that beakon of light.
Somewhere in the corner of the darkest alley
I find myself looking at a blank wall
Unable to fill the voids
I find myself locked like a caged doll
I see a thousand shadows move
Sliding by me, fast paced and unnoticed
Making their way into the world
Some gaining form
While the others blurr
The wall is unmoving and cold
But I’ve never been so bold
Dwelling between doubt and hope
I fail to see the small crack
Which can bring things back on track
As I move my hand along the wall
I see a shadow slide into that little hole
Pulling me along with it to the other side
I wonder who it was
For it has now gone
I embrace the light
For it’s time to make a choice
It’s time to fill these voids
Then I turn back, under the shade of realization
I see the little shadow
Sliding behind me, with a vow to always stay beside me.
Thank you so much Ket Cage for nominating me for the Wanna know you better challenge, I had great fun doing it. It feels amazing to be a part of this, it’s a great way to get to know and connect with people.
This challenge was created by Riya, whose blog I recently just read, it’s amazing how she writes such good poetry with so much meaning in it check out World Of My Thoughts for beautiful writing.
First, 10 briefly explain questions:
What really makes you angry? Selfishness is something that makes me really upset, because when people become selfish nothing is genuine anymore.
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? I really like food a lot, it’s something that gets me upbeat when I am low, so I wouldn’t want to be stuck with just one dish, but if I really had to choose, then it would be chat.
What is your biggest fear? My biggest fear is fear itself, fear is like a leash which keeps you tied up, it cuts your wings and holds you to the ground.
What has been your best moment this year? My best moment this year was when we won the hockey tournament.
If You Could Live Anywhere In The World For A Year, Where Would It Be? I would love to go to Fairbanks, Alaska, when the sky glows with the aurora borealis.
How do you relieve stress? Food is my favorite stress buster, but apart from that I write, read, try to sing but end up sounding like a toad xD, watch shows.
Would You Rather Go To Space Or To The Bottom Of The Ocean? I would go to space, because I like the idea of floating around where neither judgements nor gravity can ground you.
What’s your favorite season? Winter is my favorite season. I like the cold for some reason.
What’s your favorite sport? I love playing hockey, badminton and basketball, and I am a huge fan of F1 too.
With smiles that do not falter
With nods that do not alter
With handshakes being a friendly gesture
We learnt to be resilient, like the rock of Gibraltar.
Through these forced smiles
Embodied by these fake laughs
Don’t you think it’s time to alight, from this ship of fear
The fear of being judged, by the one’s who claim to be dear.
It’s time to embrace who you are
To free yourself, from the floating clouds of judgment
For those you call dear should be the one’s, who stand by you during every storm of life
Not the one’s who gloat and judge like the passing norms of life.
