BEING CREATIVE – 3

BOY SOLDIER

Four feet tall, bold to the core

Bones peaking, olive drab he wore

His limbs weary. feet they are sore

Undaunted he stands

Here to do what he was recruited for

His life, Our war !

1941056715
Numerous like him, numerous to mourn

he is a soldier made and not born

robbed of the youth that jewels adorned

By day; audacious, night’s forlorn

Choices not offered, decisions forgone !

March soldier , Duty calls

Decision is in ones hand, hands stall

But believe you me, hands will still

Killed, he has, kill , he will

lra_child_soldier
Outside calm , inside he screams

Ashes to Ashes , Dust to Dust

Soldier I am, therefore I must !

Now..

Now black like his soul, the memories

Purple; the skin, the body

Red likes the way they treat him

Yellow; the way he burns !

1264464443214

BUT…

But later a day will come

he will be done and puts down the gun

The darkness, it will talk

The shadows, they will stalk

The fear, mock !

But smile

Smile because at last he can soar !

They ask…

WHAT IS WRONG WITH BEING WHO YOU WERE ?

I want to be better.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH WHO YOU ARE NOW ?

I don’t know who I am now.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH WHO YOU WANT TO BE ?

you ! ūüė¶

Change…cuz u want to !!

We all at some point in our lives feel inadequate , maybe in the literal or in the metaphorical sense!

We feel a detachment from others and feel like someone just hit the stage lights over our heads. It is especially a nightmare for someone like me who would rather be a backup dancer than a performer . And then comes the inevitable thought of a change. A makeover. A do-over. A mask. An act.

What does one accomplish by this you ask ? One becomes the backup dancer again with the same costumes and same movements as the other dancers, losing ones uniqueness !

We all , I think will agree theoretically that this is wrong , we should be what we want to be but none and I mean NONE of us can practically be this indifferent. Change is a sign of evolution but a forced change is the sign of adaptibility which is not wrong but just flat ( for the lack of a better word ) and all black and white with no sunshine and rainbows.

Now personally I am a unicorn kinda girl . So I have decided that there will be no change until and unless I desire, want and demand one !

So change but for the better.
Change because you want to.
Change for not the others but yourself.
Change because that is what YOU desire.

ENVIOUS ANYBODY ??

There are SO many thing in this world that I want to do, most of them bordering idiotic but I want to do them anyway.

In fact there are so many things in my bucket list that they can’t even fit into a bucket.

tumblr_inline_n1wv0nJuFQ1s9uw0x

I know !

But sometimes and under some conditions, circumstances and situations we are not able to accomplish those dreams.

Obviously then we are sad

but to put a cherry on the top of the cake

somehow and from somewhere ( for eg. from our personal hell a.k.a. facebook  )

a bomb drops quoting in a calligraphic handwriting that so and so person is now doing so and so thing

that YOU already reserved the right to do !

images - Copy

then comes the phases…….

PHASE 1 : SHOCK AND HEART WRENCHING SADNESS

You feel betrayed, shocked and sad.

It is a betrayal like no other ,

even if the person didn’t know that you wanted to do or be that thing

from the bottom of your heart !

PHASE 2 : JEALOUSY

You feel extremely jealous

because it was you who had dreams about accomplishing that thing

and somebody else just comes in hacks your dreams

and go their merry effing way.

Oh hell no !

This_isnt_fair...

And then you start hating that person for a little time

like a second or maybe 2 minutes,

depends on how close you are to that person.

PHASE 3 :ENVIOUS MODE

tumblr_mhkzvaGYLQ1qghhigo1_500

Now because your heart is not in agreement with your brain

and since brain is scared that the heart will stop sending blood to him

( seriously heart is an epic physical and emotional blackmailer )

you start obsessing over the fact that somebody else is accomplishing things in your place.

rs_500x232-140909150923-tumblr_m1k009DsrP1qfdy06 - Copy

You start portraying yourself as that person and imagine all of the things that would have happened

if you were in his or her place !

PHASE 4: ACCEPTANCE

Finally you are able to adapt to the fact that somebody else gets to live your dreams

and you are thus no longer jealous of that person

but still envious and ready to move on.

tumblr_mhkzvaGYLQ1qghhigo1_500

PHASE 5 : MOVING ON

Now you have moved on

and don’t even remember this thing happened because frankly

ain’t anybody got time for that !

Aint_nobody_got_time_for_that-1427894845

And after a long long time you are normal again and have stopped PMS-ing !

hallelujah-gif

hallelujah !

AND THEN

something else happens that triggers the above mentioned phases all over again

and my dear folks you are screwed all over again .

But

you should always know that its okay ,

in fact its human to go through all of these phases,

you do not need to hate yourself for that

but what you should understand is that you have a life,

others do too but that is only where the similarities end.

Live YOUR life .

do not imagine yourself in others.

envy yourself and thou shall move forward.

SUPPOSEDLY I am not SUPPOSED to hate the word SUPPOSE !

DO you ever wonder what the world would look like without this particular word in our dictionary ??

Yes, HEAVEN !!

I can not even count how many times I’ve done things because I was suppose to do them.

 Really-gif

yup, like brush my teeth at night !

giphy

OR

how many times I am not even able to recognize my own emotion and differentiate them from what I am

or What I am supposed to be feeling !

tumblr_mczrp2Emie1qefo74o1_500

IT IS MIND BOGGLING !

Let me clarify the word suppose for you .

SUPPOSE means be required to do something because of the position one is in or an agreement one has made.

In other words,

It is a term that restricts one to do, think or be anything else other than predefined

because he is a civilized human in a nicest, most gentle way possible. ūüôā

oh yeah, heaven !!

giphy

I agree with the importance of “suppose”

as it supposedly rules our every rule ,

all of which starts with you are not suppose to

or you are suppose to !

tsnnosense

But

just like some rules are meant to be broken,

some “suppose(s)” are meant to be questioned !

(preferably the one’s that have suppose to in there somewhere)

Dear Idiots,

Okay ! I’ve heard it all.
Now it is time that you listen to me you little buggers !

What is different about LGBT community than you, me and us !
They are just another gender! They are just another part of us !
They are us !

I value freedom of speech,
I value others opinion
and
I respect you for stating your views
but don’t try to force it upon others !
Don’t include God in this, the guy has more ish to deal with than any of us!
So spare him a trip down here so he can put you in your place.

It is like fighting for women rights all over again because this is no different than that in the metaphorical sense and just as before we have won !

Accept it and move on !

TRY to be a better person !

And if you keep looking down your nose you are bound to see yourself at some point and let me break this to you gently now IT IS NOT A PRETTY SIGHT !

#LoveWins
#MarriageEquality

LIVE AND LET LIVE !
BE YOURSELF !
LOVE EVERYBODY!

WHAT IS THE EASIEST AND YET THE HARDEST WORD TO SAY IN ENGLISH DICTIONARY ???

SORRY !

I think we all would agree on this.

tumblr_mhjl3n82mg1qc8jh0o1_250

While we throw out strings of sorry(s) all day and every day

to a table or a chair (yea I know you do that too)

We rarely sometimes ever are actually able to use this word to a being that can understand it !!

HUMANS.

giphy

We all are psychologically proud beings who all have egos the size of mountains

and a super-hero power of ignorance.

I get it.

tumblr_myexgqWPK31s4bpt5o1_250

We all are too much of those things to admit that

our actions just had an affair with consequences

and now they are having a messy break-up.

Just-Sheldon-D-sheldon-cooper-31938618-500-226

Thus a simple word like Sorry becomes the bane of our existence.

LITERALLY.

Because why would I want to use it if it can stop the feud between the above two,

give me a sense of closure

and stop guilt (that overzealous product of a zombie )

from eating my heart out.

Also my life will then be not so interesting and more peaceful.

WHY IN THE HADES WOULD I WANT TO ACCOMPLISH SUCH A THING ??

If-I-Could-I-Would-Sheldon-Big-Bang-Theory

On a serious note,

tumblr_ma1z3acLRK1rw29eto1_500

I know its hard but you can do it , you can be a better person !

Unless you murdered somebody in cold blood, then you are just a plain psychopath.

TIP : here is what I do , I take a deep breath count from 3 to 1 and blurt it all out !!
