Beginning.


I see tears.

I know they’re fears fighting their way out of your eyes. You’re dazed by consciousness and caprices, choices and consequences, fate and expectations and desire for deliverance.

I hear prayers in your cries, see the regret in your pain, hope hidden somewhere in the wrinkles on your head. Whatever path you take is pilgrimage when life becomes sacrilege.

There are flowers in your hands and blood underneath, there is courage in your heart and heresy concealed. Take me to temple, let me face your god; I will ask the questions, your faith shall be at odds.

I see the end.

    No point in asking questions since nobody is there to answer them.

  5. I think Faith can work wonderfully for innocent souls who don’t have much questions. For me it was faith, then questions then breaking of faith and then making peace with faith of a different kind. Beautiful lines

    1. Ah..The same happened with me.
      I had faith, I lost it, I found it again then abandoned it. Now I’m at peace.
      Thank you.

            4. Hey if we talk about earlier, than being more than physically occupied I was mentally occupied thinking God knows what.
              Being mentally occupied is draining and more exhausting than anything.

              But in a matter of this month I worked on myself, and talking to you and Anushka has also impacted a lot.
              Thus I see a change in me.
