My father had a dream, so did his. When you stop dreaming, it’s life that you’ll see. I dare you to dream, A dream with legitimacy. Now ‘wake up’ makes more sense to me because our generation is as hopeless as it can be.
I set out at dusk, the road is warm and dusty. The sun’s retreating, you see, scared little twat knows I’m out to get him. The sky is bare now, its nakedness turns me on. The clouds take their time to dress it up; ah! there they are, the stars! Sneaky bastards! I hear the … Continue reading
Except for those street dogs in the suburb, loneliness loomed on this usually busy road. A few bikes went past me as I drove slow, soaking in the sunlight. It could’ve been a good day; everyday can be a good day, if only you could do something about it. On the left stood a bus, … Continue reading Where to?
The cracked open lips that bleed tell you no tales of the coldness that dried them up. The dirt in my nails decorate fingers with the untidiness of life. Why do you bother yourself with how tasteless I am with the clothes I wear? Don’t they speak for themselves? The shoes don’t match, man, the … Continue reading Ahem!
To everyone who was with me throughout 2019, thank you for making my life better and worse. To everyone who wasn't and isn't, I don't give a flying fuck. To the rest of the people, Happy Freaking New Year!!! We all know it's gonna be the same anyway but why lose hope? Fool your hearts, … Continue reading Happy new year 2020!!
What good are dreams when they don't feel alive? What good is life when it's devoid of dreams? What good is the world when it doesn't give what you need? What good are you when you can't find what you seek?
You call me an ember I'm a fucking wildfire I'm that Ray of hope Who was once a mere desire Beaten and bruised, Walked into your province Thrown to the wolves, I'm back with an empire The skies come falling down The horns have now been blown Now I want the world, entire When all … Continue reading
I was in heaven, And dreamt of sins; I was in hell, And yearned for heaven; What I was wasn't the question, What I have become wasn't an answer. Tonight I kneel, Begging for forgiveness, Praying to myself.
Through the narrow paths and lousy traffic, I raced my way to work. Amidst all that chaos and people giving wrong path indicators, music is my saving grace. The ride to work is always an adventure; rude people, potholes, broken roads, heavy traffic, people coming at you, taking the wrong side, man! It is one … Continue reading My worst enemy.
Icy winds eat through my skin I fly above, on my beaten wings Dabbed in snow are my footprints Along the trail, following the winds Changing directions, hear me howling Running with the wolves, I am A wildling Against the tide I try and swim, Always hustling, I walk this road, kicking the ruckus There's … Continue reading Here I come.
You say I'm in darkness And I need light? But my words Are my saviour And pain makes me write.
A leaf doesn't have to be dry To fall.
There are ghosts in my closet, I wear them to work There are demons under my bed, I talk them to sleep There's a devil in my past, we're together in the present My dad's shirt fits me, it lies in that wardrobe I look dapper as ever But could never walk in his shoes … Continue reading Welcome to my life
"How worse can you be?" She asked "When I hit rock bottom, I try to dig deeper."
My eyes were forcibly exposed to sunlight from the windows telling me it's morning already and I'm late. Eyelids, lazy as hell refused to open up, well, they have no choice anyway. My hands searched all over the bed to find my phone but couldn't. Time for eye and hand coordination has come but they … Continue reading Sunday morning. Where’s the motivation??
Loving her was like waking up early on a Sunday morning; you have nothing to do but stroll about until something comes up. You regret being awake, you're irritated because you can't go back to sleep.
She was a Queen Not to people Not to the world But to herself And that's how she rose
How does it feel to have the same routine everyday? You wake up, go out, come back home and repeat the same until you lost track of the last time you were happy with yourself? You have a phone but no one calls, there's internet but no one texts, there's YouTube and you watch either … Continue reading How does it feel?
I swim through your tears Hide behind your smiles I live in your fears Walk with you for miles Keep your pillows dry 'cuz they'll be wet tonight Hold your breath, babe This ain't over without a fight Like the blood gushing through Your heart My absence will be felt Flooding in your thoughts You … Continue reading
You know what's worse? Silence when I need a voice Lonliness when I dread silence How do I make things better? By listening to myself And loving my own presence There's this lesson I've learned the hard way: If you don't love yourself, nobody else will. All these days, I valued myself based on how … Continue reading Changes.
Howling, he stood On the boulder The world shook Everytime he cried, harder Thick was his hide And pelage That moved like fire Time has come, Vengeance, his desire Nothing seemed to stop him Not even the world entire Clouds conquered the skies His path, a wild fire Leaving the pack behind, It's death, he … Continue reading Writing practice/Morning motivation
I'm used to it So much that I smile through it
My head aches from all that vodka induced whirry sensation yet my heart desires more. Enough is enough says my mind but something inside me says, "Go on." I hear people talking to me, I know I'm responding but what the hell am I even saying? One thing's for sure, secrets are being revealed, 'cuz … Continue reading Mornings like these.
I open my eyes, Today To new horizons A whole new world Learning to remember Remembering to ignore To change what I see For What I see Defines me
"Every day is another chance to make things right." Meh. "It's a new day, it's a new life." Get lost. "Just do what you must without any expectations and you'll never be dissatisfied. Oh! Then I'll never be satisfied either because I had no expectations in the first place. Bullshit. "Start your day with positive … Continue reading Morning, please motivate me. Just try.
Life: The joke's on you Me: But I'm laughing at you Never been a fan of optimism, don't like to be a pessimist either. All we gotta do is carry on like we don't have a choice (and that's a choice). Life is ironical, isn't it??
Everybody is one in a million. Every person is once in a lifetime kind of person. People are neither unique nor the same. We make our own lives and fate. The paths we choose decide and define the people we meet. Let's look into each other for the mirrors we are!
"I cannot laugh when I'm alone." "I don't care if anyone's around, I laugh when I have to." The above to were the statements from people I know. Though they're simple and nothing can be brought out of them, a mere observation can show you a drastic difference in personalities. One's an introvert and the … Continue reading Morning motivation
