Stop labelling.

Why do we label someone ‘something’? Are we so perfect? Nobody is flawless, not even God. “She’s a whore.” A friend of mine once said this about a girl who just walked past us. I was pretty naive and judgemental back in those days (maybe now too). As a teenager, I looked ugly, I was…

Grab.

“care to give me your hand? The traffic is so heavy and you can’t cross the road if I don’t help out.” An old man said, looking at P who was standing a few steps away from her cousins who were lost in a conversation, forgetting they had to cross the road. P was 17…

Lost.

“Please let me out! I’ve done nothing wrong. I got wife and kids!” He cried while they dragged him inside his cell. He kept screaming until he was tied to his bed. They locked him up and left. He looked at the stars through the ventilator. His wife waved at him while he walked to…

Be independent, not interdependent.

Love is showing no reluctance to sacrifice what matters the most for who matter. A friend of mine said. Love is the ability to see through the flaws of the other person and love them in spite of them or for them. Another friend said. Where do we see love? In our parents’ eyes? In…

One of my fondest memories of ours.

She dragged me inside the temple and ordered me to wash my feet clean before we entered. I obeyed. We walked in as he took me in with her, holding my hand tight. “Coming to temple is good. Praying is better and believing in something can be the best thing that can happen to you.”…

Fare thee well.

I don’t know what to do now, now that you left me right here. I’m surprised I’m still blogging because I wanted to get rid of anything that reminds me of our love because it only makes me break down in tears. I know you love me and you know I do too. I still…

A point of no return. Or maybe not!?

Nothing was audible. Vehicles moved too fast but time moved too slow. The constant honking wasn’t loud enough to distract his slow stagger. Everything was half blurry and half clear. He slipped suddenly and fell but he could break his fall right on time, got up and looked around confused, unable to identify what he…

Trust.

Trust is what gives you a reason to live, trust can be the reason a person could die. It’s okay to be trusted but is it okay to trust? All these years, I’ve noticed that trusting is the easiest and the hardest thing to do. Blind trust is always fatal. Kids trust their parents unconditionally…

Maggie

She was tall, dark and intimidating. Like nothing could take her down. she visited Maggie every night, sat down on the bed beside her feet. Maggie was scared when she first met her. The dark woman seldom talked. All she did was sit there, with her mouth shut at stare at Maggie all night. Sometimes,…

One day at a time.

“I need this break up.” She said, with tears rolling down her cheeks. She wiped them hastily forcing a smile on her lips. “I really need this.“ “Then why don’t you just stop talking to me? It’ll be a lot easier for you. Just get this over with.” He yelled. “I need this break up…

Vent

I’ve never been this confused my entire life. There was a time when I was absolutely peaceful in chaos even when people took advantage of me, manipulated me, gossipped about, insulted and even humiliated me. It took time for me to recover, let it all go. I did my share of mistakes, apologized for a…

It’s all in your head.

There are two different types of people in the world, those who want to know, and those who want to believe.                           – Fredrich Neitzsche I guess belief is what makes us human. Not a day goes by without us believing in something. Even the people who don’t believe, believe that their belief of not believing…
