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 !

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¶

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.

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 !

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.

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 !

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)

ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS…REALLY????

index

This particular idiom I believe is older than dirt.

Not because it actually is but that it had been used so many times that if I never hear it again it will be too soon !!!

And to those who don’t understand the contrast of the word Action here and think its related to Drinking action …..

let’s just right now take a step back because this is beyond you…like waaaaayyyy beyond.

tumblr_mfrijokrdj1r9hwljo1_500

The Idiom itself is a contradiction to the world today because…..

  • CONTRADICTION NO. 1 :¬† most people living on earth today are blind

Sad-look-of-pity-from-sheldon Not in the literal sense obviously but that they are so dense that they don’t know how to read a particular action.

  • CONTRADICTION NO. 2 : most people in this world are good actors

actionsspeaklouderthanwords We learn to lie about things at a small age despite how much you would want to deny it. We learn to fake emotions and our actions pretty quickly and are able to perfect that art over a period of time. Now I am not saying that words are better in this scenario but that the actions are no better than the words here.

  • CONTRADICTION NO. 3 : most people on this earth have a life

Aint_nobody_got_time_for_that-1427894845We all know that life goes on and that we must keep up. And thus Bruhhh , ain’t nobody got time to interpret this actions.Straight laced powerful words are a way to go.

  • CONTRADICTION NO. 4 : not all actions have the ability of speech

Some actions themselves contradict each other. And also sometimes we just do what we have to do , no explanations.

HENCE,

Words are powerful.

Words are necessary.

Now I am not saying that actions don’t speak but that they could only be understood by those who actually speak that language.
