The path

Even if I knew, I couldn’t beEven if I could, I wouldn’t beEven if I would, I still have to know I might walk, but I see no pathThere might be a path, but I can’t believeIf belief is the path, I dare not tread In response to her majesty Nawazish. Also, here’s my Instagram…

Belief.

Y’know what scares me? Real people suffering because of differing options and beliefs on fictional entities that remain unaffected by human interference. Are we that delusional? When I look at things, I know That United we fall and divided we stand. Look deeper and you’ll see everything is a mere belief; from The value of…

Goodness!

I’ve always imagined myself to be good but when I realised the expanse of ‘good’, it had become more evil than it’s supposed to be; The nonexistence of existing convictions left a void that no fabricated morals could fill. A restless search for meaning that began with a disquiet in my heart left me stranded…

Dear you

If I took your name, would it save me from shame? My sins laugh at me when I kneel and pray. When convictions suppress conscience, the only solace is faith. Tell me, what sanctifies you? I try to understand and fail. Sometimes, existence is belief and I choose to disbelieve. My wrong questions, their right…

Believe

I walked with my eyes closed to know how far I’d go without bumping into whatever came my way. I could smell the rain, it’s about to take the leap of faith but the clouds looked too adamant, I saw them before I closed my eyes. The first step was cautious, second a little loose;…

We.

Why are we born? I know how but not why and I know sometimes how is why. Birth can’t be asked for and death shouldn’t be, we’re anomalies.

Dreams

All I have are my dreams. What they are and where they come from? I know not, brother. They’re as lost as I am. I dream of everything, I dream of nothing; Everything is nothing and nothing becomes everything.

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…

“The stars shine for us”, we’ve been told, “there’s someone watching over”, and we’re sold. Then we grow up, realise these lies are centuries old. They say there’s an eternal fire burning within, is it the same fire that burns through your soul? Why is it too late by the time we realise hopes are…

!

For every time I said I don’t believe, Let me tell you, there was a time when I had nothing but that. You can only lose what you always had. What you don’t is what you won’t.

What rules you?

There was a time when God inspired hope. Now, he’s nothing more than a scapegoat. This begs the question, who created whom?Because today, what rule us are neither God nor his teachings But religion, people and their preaching. I say, enough with the Tartuffery.

Hope.

The morning sky hides behind the night; a never ending wait For the knight in golden armour, hoping to be saved again; The flowers live on, oblivious to their unpredictable fate. The lands, so barren, await the long lost rain. Birds search for grain, predators yearn for prey; Answers abandon questions, The hopeless kneel and…

Faith.

A soul truly lost loses itself in belief, in hope Of finding itself again. What’s lost isn’t recovered, what is found isn’t what is lost. What do you choose? What do you know? Where will this path lead you to? Where do you go?

Shower thoughts

We live in a complicated world. We’re taught the wrong subjects, we get the wrong answers and we learn the wrong lesson. society is an institution that creates an illusion of unity by dividing people. “It’s a free world” they say, yet govern you by laws, restrictions and sanctions. Have you looked outside your window?…

Thoughts.

We all have a strong desire to have a sense of belonging. Humans are social animals, we live in groups and a place here groups coexist is called a society. Belonging to a society is okay, being a part of community in a society is great too; identifying ourselves as a part of a group…

Deserving.

What is life? The mere fleeting days of body and mind that are in a constant state of decay. I bet we all notice the chaos around us but live on arranging things in our lives. It’s just an arrangement, you see, the change in order of things, that’s all. The chaos is constant. You…

Just another conversation

“To travel the spiritual path, you must begin searching for a light within yourself. A desire to learn, a desire to conquer self. What I see in you is darkness; walk towards light. Embrace the reality, the world has more to offer. The lord has a lot in store for you. ” And he turned…

Visualization

Whenever I have something in mind, I take a paper and either write about it or draw a picture. If I was a painter, I’d paint, if I was a sculptor, I’d make an idol or a statue. It’s a way of giving my thoughts a shape and meaning. It’s not necessary that expression is…

Assumptions on beliefs.

“you know too much and that led to your disbelief.” She said. I don’t know too much but I know enough to not believe in a supernatural, omniscient and omnipotent entity called god. Been a believer for twenty five years of my life without questioning, just nodding. There was a time when I frequented temples…

Or an Atheist.

I realize what I see I believe in what I say I sing blasphemy I write my own fate I am my own god Call me a heathen

Condition.

Chained by life, Freed by dreams This isn’t what I wrote But a silent scream Scarred is this paper So are my beliefs

Doubts.

In a world filled with stars In a galaxy full of worlds I wander As an insignificant speck of dust I look at the sun, in daylight Under the dark sky And moonlight, I wonder Why do we talk to stones? Believe in an existence, unknown? What is sin? What is just? What are morals?…

Affirmation.

When an individual believes in something, it’s faith. When a group believes in the same thing, it’s a cult. When a cult infects the masses, it’s religion. You choose what you believe in, You choose your religion. It doesn’t always have to be God.

Beliefs

There are times when you’re forced to give up your beliefs just to let an argument slide. It’s not that arguments are bad but the people who start are not worth it. How many times were you advised to believe in something that sounds absolutely ridiculous?? We live in a society where majority’s opinion rules…
