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 !

DON’T BE AFRAID

Maybe it will just be one of those average days.

Maybe you will be walking home after a deal

or waltzing in you pajamas after a thorough clean up.

Cleaning-Blood-Stains

Or maybe you will be too busy drinking to even notice.

Notice that something has changed.

The slightest of the shifts in the air.

Maybe it will take you time to realize that.

Or maybe you will stop doing everything at once.

But that moment will surely arrive.

An inevitable aftermath, if you will.

Realization will dawn

Maybe you will even try to outrun it

Or maybe you will try a clever way out

but surely it will catch up

surely the right person will notice.

Maybe the green works

Or maybe it is orange that comes out on top.

What ever it maybe

Don’t Be Afraid

Cause surely you have experience

And I am sure they won’t do anything that you haven’t already !

Being a by-stander to a train-wreck of a hot mess !

How many of us have seen someone we know just fall prey to bad things ?

I bet the number constitutes at least 90% .

I , for one, have seen many ( and taking into account my ignorance of everything not related to me , its saying something) .

We try and try to get them to let go and yes, sometimes out of sheer luck we do succeed but most of the time, we fail !

I thought I failed too but what I  came to realize later is that it was not my test to fail .

Its like me and that person , in an examination hall , sitting next to each other and having an entirely different paper. While I have the knowledge to help that someone else pass this test ( and my willingness, which is rare ! ) ,  despite my best efforts to help them try to achieve it , the other person may not even be able to understand me.

Which surprisingly (not ! ) , is true in most of the cases.

( Also the above may suggest that me not being a good cheater, the fact though still remains. Their test and them not asking for help, makes it none-of-my-business ! )

Similarly, it is their life, their decisions, their mistakes, their triumphs. Relative to this, we are just by-standers ; allowed to have an opinion and even shout that opinion in their faces. ( as long as we expect it to be followed by ignorance on their part obviously . )

I have myself made bad decisions ( who hasn’t ? )and in hindsight I wish someone would have shouted some things in my face too, but in hindsight I have also realized that I would have just as easily ignored them as I would my homework.

Only thing WE can do is be there for them. I am not asking you to support their decisions because that ish is effed up but only to let them know that whatever happens, and whenever they are ready, you will be there for them.

( Queue the Awwwww ! )

Last but not the least …

Live and Let live !

( despite the jackasses they are ! )

Love everybody

(but don’t smother anyone with that love )

LATERS, BABY !

Exams in 3..2..Oh wait SELFIE !…1

IT is a truth universally acknowledged, that a person in possession of a social media account must be in want of a DP ! 

Hence, the running around , making different (weird ) poses so that you can have that ‘ONE’ selfie !

And yes, I was doing exactly that.

Gasp!

And to think I have my semester exams in 3 days .

Gee, I am just the perfect role model aren’t I ?

And yes I am stalling.

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 !

736774

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.

SUB : WHY THE DOOR TO MY ROOM IS NOT OPEN AND CLOSED !!

DEAR OVER AGED YOUNGSTERS ,

Jessica-Lourdes-Pearson

FINE !!

DEAR ‘ADULTS’

I have experienced and observed (because I got nothing better to do)

that parents often argue with their kids on the subject of the door to their room being closed and by closed I mean shut tight

(if you do not fall into this category then you are probably a good parent….or a very very bad one ).

tumblr_inline_mqgk7wrk381rc6flo

ANYHOO

For you and only for you I am listing down the reasons for what you consider a sin !

WHY THE DOOR TO MY ROOM  IS NOT OPEN…

  • The reason is not because I am doing something secretive.

7

  • It is also not because I am mad at you.

tumblr_mnvlrvpRVo1rijmvyo1_500

  • It is so not because I want to create a barrier between me and you.

a-wall

  • It is not because I don’t like you guys.

tumblr_inline_nnzbskhqJH1rjic88_500

  • It is also not because I am depressed or a loner.

online-shopping-big-bang-theory-need-help-gif

DISCLAIMER :- In some of the cases the above following point can actually be the reason for the door not opened, in which case my dear adults you are effed !!

WHY IT IS CLOSED…

  • It is only so because I have finally reach the stage that I need to have my own space and need some time introspecting ( OK fine maybe a wee bit of daydreaming is also involved ….)

'Your honor, SHHHHHHHHHHH. Can't you see the defense rests?'

  • Also I need a place to dance where nobody can see me !

friends26

DISCLAIMER :- In some of the cases the above following point is the excuse that you might get for the door being closed, in which case also dear adults you are effed.

MORAL :

Whatever you do, whether you try to open the door or let it remain closed, you are effed….

unless and until (yea, there is still hope for you ) you believe in what you taught us and know we can take care of ourselves !
