Random thoughts

Religion exploits people. How? By promising heaven and hell. We are instructed to believe in certain things and behave in certain ways, which upon questioning give us prefixed answers. One of them being “believe and you’ll know”. The sole aim of any religion seems to ignite faith. What we fail to see is it’s burning…

Changes.

I’ve had answers; plenty of them. “What do you want to be?” They asked me. I’ve had answers, man. Didn’t even think twice, “I’ll be the king of the world” and it’d sound right. Things changed. I had answers, no reasons yet happy; now there reasons and no answers. Am I happy? I wish I…

Uhm…

It’s conflicting, this life. We were told that suffering was inevitable but nobody said happiness is temporary. Why’s there pain in accomplishments and pleasure in trivialities? Why are we taught the opposite? Do we realise that all of those are momentary? Why’s there an end? Why does anything have to begin at all? Why’s there…

“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…

I ponder.

I was dreaming looking out the window, eyes wide open. I struggled to sleep lying in my bed, eyes closed, demons wide awake. I searched for answers without asking a question; whatever questioned faded without an answer. I live my life, dead inside; Would being dead keep me alive? Is there a cure to this…

I’m just curious.

They say God created everything; the trees, water, mountains, creeks, insects, animals and hell, whatever that exists. A few days ago, I saw a dog and a cow sitting next to each other in peace. I wondered: Why the fuck aren’t they racist?? Why is it only us?? If god created them, to which religion…

Ironies.

Truth when questioned enough becomes a lie; Lie that’s believed turns into the truth. Questions are answered yet No answers are questioned; Freedom is not fundamental, Rights aren’t right when used. I’ve lost belief in faith, There’s no faith in what I believe.

And I know.

Why don't you tell me it's okay? Why can't you tell me I'm okay? What makes me a fool? Writing for you? Or expecting a response? Where have all my apologies gone? Why hasn't your forgiveness reached my door? Why are we quiet When there's blood on the floor?? If I'm bad, why won't you…

Sunshine!!

Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine all around! This time, it's spread by Nabeela, my sister from somewhere I don't know. America, sis?? Well, thank you, ma'am, you put a smile on this sulky guy's face this morning. Let's jump straight to the Q&A, shall we?? First thing that comes to your mind when you think about christmas…

My sunshine!

Me when I see my name in Nour's award post: Lemme thank her highness for nominating me when nobody gave two shits. Means a lot, girl. With award nominations come tricky questions and when it's Nour that's asking, you better brace yourself. Here we go!! Her questions: 1-deepest lyrics you’ve heard? In every loss, in…

Why?

Why Do you keep knocking When no one answers? Why Do you go to places? You're unwanted. Who's letting you in? You take the wrong paths Rang the wrong bells Held odd hands Shared incomplete paths Why Do you search for purpose? There isn't one Why Do you seek meaning? When you can't give it…
