19 December

A date that reminds me,

of everything that’s important and not,

of things I’ve gotten and lost…

of days filled with joy and love,

of misunderstandings and fights,

of tears of joy and pain,

of love and hate,

of distance and togetherness,

of life and coincidences…

A date that gave me everything one would ever need…

A Soulmate and a Best Friend

Happy Birthday you two! ❤



“Anybody can become angry — that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way — that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.” ― Aristotle

There’s a lot of anger,
spewing inside me…

It comes out on days unexpected;
messes with my brain,
And uses up all of my energy…

I get all negative, jealous and mad,
I say things I normally wouldn’t,
I’m sarcastic, rude and hate everyone;
Even people I know I shouldn’t…

I don’t know how to control this negativity,
So I close my eyes and think why…

I try to let this feeling pass;
This feeling of hate and envy…
I try to feel it till it hurts,
Till it all leaves me in the form of tears…

These salty droplets filled with hate,
Reminds me of the person I really am –

An okay sort of person who tries,
to be the best person, she can be.

Abortion – To Ban or Not to Ban?

“The irrationality of disgust suggests it is unreliable as a source of moral insight. There may be good arguments against gay marriage, partial-birth abortions and human cloning, but the fact that some people find such acts to be disgusting should carry no weight. – Paul Bloom”

These days there is a new topic of discussion I see doing the rounds – Abortion.

I see articles after articles & so many heated arguments regarding this. It saddens my heart when I see people arguing and throwing around words – sluts, murderers & child killers around.

The main issue here is that people try to look at this from two different angles, one is if it is morally right or wrong & another that banning it takes away basic women rights.

But these arguments make no sense! It doesn’t lead anywhere because people who believe that abortion is killing babies, they are never going to see it from the perspective of the person who thinks it isn’t (and vice versa).

Now I ask you to relate this issue to another one that has been doing rounds for years now – LGBTQ relationships. In this issue, too, we see people who advocate basic human rights & people who vehemently disagree that such relationships should even exist.

The whole point of mentioning this is that no matter whether we agree or disagree, banning a relationship or banning abortion isn’t going to stop people from doing it. Banning it would only increase the risks of deaths among children & women. Banning it would lead to various dangerous back alley procedures & a myriad of other problems.*

Banning isn’t a solution to any issue like this.

This was the case years ago when abortion & usage of birth control methods were punishable by death but this lead to a whole host of other problems as mentioned earlier; risks of deaths & botched illegal procedures.

The whole reason we have an option of abortion is so that parents who cannot afford to take care of a disabled child, they have an option of not doing so. Not every city in the world is equipped with support for the disabled.

At the same time, parents who don’t see children in their future, should not be forced to have a child for the sake of it. Can you imagine the increase in child abuse, the number of orphaned children, & a whole set of children with mental health issues because of unloving parents?

What about women who are raped, why should they have to carry a child that they didn’t plan to have, they never asked for any of it.

While there are options that would decrease abortion such as condoms & birth control pills but ‘not wanting to have babies’ aren’t the only reasons one would want to get an abortion.

All I would say is this – Try not to look at this issue from a moral angle or a feminist one. The only thing that should matter is that a person (in this case, women) should always have a choice.

It may not be right or the best option available, but it doesn’t mean the choice should be taken away from them.

Don’t Give Up

Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going. Tough situations build strong people in the end.” ― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Some days are supposed to be perfect,
But they don’t turn out the way you thought they would…
Expectations aren’t met,
And everything that couldn’t possibly go wrong,
Go Wrong…

But what I want to tell you is;
Don’t give up,
Don’t stop working,
Don’t stop trying,
Don’t stop at all…

I know you’re giving it a 120%
But sometimes the results just don’t show,
Especially, when you want them to.

It takes time,
Good things always do…
All you need to do is focus,
And work hard-smart.

You go through shit,
Things you never knew could happen to you,
Come and push you further down…
Face it,
Beat it,
Fight it,
Even if there’s no end in sight.

No matter how much you’re hurting right now,
No matter how much worse it gets from here on out,
Don’t give up.

This is your dream,
There is no way out.
Stick to it,
Cry tears of pain and blood,
Burn and scream,
Feel the pain cut through you…

It may not seem like it now,
But you’re a step closer to the person,
You’re supposed to be…

Just don’t ever- Give up.

When everything seems Right

“They ask. “How are you doing?” But what they mean is “Are you over it yet?” My lips say, “Fine, thanks”, but my eyes tell a different story, my heart sings a different tune, and my soul just weeps.” – healthyplace.com

Sometimes even when things seem right
Even when things are going according to plan
Even though everything is right where it’s supposed to be
Even when you are where you’re supposed to be

It feels wrong and weird
Like your perfect world is suddenly turned to a shade,
Darker than the darkest shade of gray
When you have the most wonderful conversations,
But they’re always tinted with a hint of sadness

You feel like you’re in a dark hole
Some place warm & safe,
But you can’t feel anything there
Not sadness, not happiness
It’s a place that sucks your soul dry,
Of everything good & everything bad
And you’re left with nothing

Waking up is a chore
Eating is a task
Others are better off away
Living seems unnecessary…

All you can see in this perfect world
Through tear glazed eyes
And a numb mind,
Is lost hope & dreams
The lost will to live
And all the imperfections in everything that is just right…
