Living my life on my own terms and conditions, I've celebrated life at every given opportunity. Here I take the opportunity to share a few of my experiences in form of poems, short stories or articles.
Some victories have been won And many are lost With each passing day, People continue to fight Their differences, friends, And societal norms, There isn’t time to breathe, As they try and push their demons down. Worries. Pains. Burdens of the real world. The work you do and the stress that accompanies it. All are well hidden; inside the confines of the mind Hoping against hope that something Could erase past mistakes Living on; continuing to breathe All fighting a battle with their inner thoughts. Dealing with a high voltage drama: Called life. Each forgetting the people who love them. Wasting the time given to live With a feeble attempt to blink away the tears, Facing the fear of failure and rejection They continue to search on for that lost bridge… But the bridge between childhood and adulthood does not exist.
All the while eating the soul away Destroying it from the inside To the out; ripping it apart, Filling you with dread and despair. Secrets of heart grow Heavier day by day While we learn to walk about With a tailored smile on our face.
Thoughts, plans, regrets, Sometimes even wishes Not all secrets can be shared. Layers by layers these secrets pile and Everything is locked up and stored behind. We donne a mask we seldom want to reveal. People, you say you have no secrets! And I say I have tonnes…
Look deep into your darkest memories You’ll find a forgotten tale, A murmured doubt, and a few Forbidden stories, with unfinished ends… There are secrets… Secrets on the inside of me Smothered in their prime, yet blazing with heat, That I’ll endeavour never to reveal.
We bring you a photo prompt every Friday so that you can work on this while enjoying your weekend. We’ll be posting a photo every weekend which will be clicked by Siba and you are free to write a story/poem/flash fiction on it.
