To have a kind and an understanding nature, doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to suffer injustice silently. Raise your voice. Speak up against the intolerance.

Battlefield.

         “How does it feel like to fight a constant battle against yourself?” She beamed, mockingly. He remained silent. “Oh come on! Humour me”, was what she said next that built up an intense anger within him. He felt, for the very first time in his life, the need to hit somebody so hard that eventually the person drops down unconscious.

Inspiration?

She couldn’t seem to gather why she liked that particular trait in some humans. The kind of people who were a stubborned lot; who did only what seemed right to them. They are the ones who strive to accomplish their dreams ands goals even when there are tons of men waiting to oppose and obstruct them on reaching their path, their destination.

She considers them as her inspiration. She wishes to be like them. She wants to conquer the entire world, for which she needs to stand on her own feet. For this, she needs to be stubborn. Yet, a tiny little force in her heart, called ‘sympathy’ manages to bring her down; away from her path. Every. Single. Time..!

Delta (Δ)

Life is a constant game of improvising. We are never stable. We keep on learning new stuff. In the process unknowingly, we transform ourselves. It’s as if like, Δ – the Greek symbol for Change – is directly proportional to the number of years we live for!

You’ve changed“, they say. “Changed for good, yeah“, is all you want to say.

Solitary Confinement

Featured image

Even if all the gates flew open, she didn’t move outside. She saw that all of her companions took advantage of the situation to set themselves free; yet she didn’t waver even for a bit. She seemed to have grown accustomed to her illusory and ‘comfortable’ personal space. Her way of giving an excuse to something that demanded her to take a life-saving risk.

A Support

Featured image

Howsoever we may deny it, at the end of the day, we do need a shoulder of a parent, a trusted friend or a distant relative. The entire day goes into the hardships of being more and more independent; but towards the end, we all reveal our true character. Fortunately or unfortunately – I have no say in this anyway – we are after-all ‘social‘ animals. Humans need crowd, animals need herd; birds need flock, and someone to be heard.

In A Trance

Featured image

Today I have this giddy feeling inside my stomach, as I start a new phase of my life.  Would I be able to fulfill my goals, my requirements? Or would I just waste the years to come in utter confusion and disbelief? Hoping for the best; wish me luck people! 😛

Veritaserum

Featured image          “Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be on a high dose of Veritaserum* ? Spilling out the truths, all at once, without worrying about it’s consequences. True, even my darkest secrets would be revealed; but, once it’s gone, it’s GONE!! It won’t dare trouble me ever again. Ah, so liberating!” – She thought.

Veritaserum* – a powerful truth serum/ potion. (a Harry Potter reference)

Illusion ~ Not Everything Is As It Seems To Be

Featured image

She became skeptical. He seemed to be unconcerned. There was years and years of distrust buried within her towards him. Yet what she experienced in this meet was unlike ever before. The surface of her heart, which was as hard as a rock, was beginning to melt, upon his mere words. But a tiny voice spoke from somewhere inside, ‘This isn’t worth it. Move on. It’s just an illusion, do not dwell upon it.’ Intuition? Ego? Paranoia? Doubt? She didn’t have even a slightest clue of what was going on deep within her. She was fighting a constant battle against herself. Some of her organs on the side of the devils, while the others on the side of the angels? But then again, who decides who are the angels and who are the devils? Of course, our perspective. But she had lost sense of her perspective. She was mesmerized by him. Finally, she took the hint from the tiny voice and kept quiet. Showing none of her emotions outside. What if it really was an illusion? What if there was a selfish motive behind his sudden softness, after years altogether? She decided to carry on with life as it is. She remembered a quote she had read in a book by J.K. Rowling- “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” If the past keeps you away from your goals, then it’s better to evade it, throw it in it’s rightful place, which is the past itself; and keep moving forward.
