Waiting for dawn.

The world fell quiet this year,Like the forest, when the night comes near.But, we didn’t get sunlight this year,We were stuck in a dark place, surrounded by fear. But, there were things I learnt,About myself, about this world.I tried to look at the glass as half full,This year was something new,And the ride was far from dull.I’ve grown twice the […]

The Categorical Imperative and 2020

Immanuel Kant was a famous philosopher, well proclaimed for his theory- The Categorical Imperative. This theory is a deontological form of ethics. What is deontology, exactly? Well, deontology is a theory created by multiple thinkers stating that, we shouldn’t act without thinking about the consequences, (here’s the catch…) but instead we should act according to our own personal set of […]

The Things We Hide…

Secrets as dark as the night,Regretful pasts locked in their cages and trying to take flight.Hopelessness trapped away from everybody,Just like the dark side of the moon,Our dark side nobody can see.Cowardice cloaked by a thin veil,While some others have blood red courage hidden beneath.A tender heart,Covered in steel.Memories that age,Like the dried autumn leaves.Happiness soaring through the blue sky,Tears […]

Carry on…

Tell the wind to wait,Its blowing too fast.Carrying you away,Not sure you’ll last.Tell time to stop,Everything’s knocking you off your feet,All you’re left with is memories.When you feel,Everything going swiftly by.In the blowing storm,Nobody can hear you cry.You need to carry yourself onward,With great strength moving forward.Tears streaming down your face,Nobody around,You have to carry on.The storm will clear after […]

Path.

So many people,Choose to walk the same path.It feels so ethereal,That the same thought,Crossed so many minds.So many humans,So alike.I want to break the chain,And make my own way.From this fragile mindset,I want to run away.All paths lead to Rome,Is what they say.That can’t be true,I’ll prove it myself.Far away cries,That call me to that place.Hidden lies,Forgotten good byes.All of […]

Some…

Some are insecure,Some others are indifferent.Some are self assured,While some always feel irrelevant.Some stand up and fight,Some others run away out of fright.Some know they don’t belong,They don’t care,Because they know what they’re doing Isn’t wrong.Everybody is different,Not everybody embraces it.Everybody is flawed,Not everybody knows it.Perfection can’t be attained,But patience can.Triumph comes after pain,Only after a win,Can a lion shake […]

Dreams

They wander in your head,Like lost hopes filled with dread.Broken dreams shatter like glass,You can see your reflection,Crumbled in half.When things seem bleak,They come in the forms of nightmares.Ain’t I in enough misery?That these painful dreams haunt me in flares.Some, they lightly burn.But others they painfully ignite.Bringing up that one thought,You try to push down with all your might.They say […]

Courage and fear

To stand up and fight to truly put one’s might, to do something that’s so hard, it’s impossible to do even some part. But, to go back and face cowardice, to be scared and not face the apprentice, to be flooded with fear. But to be strong, to be a rebel and break laws. Instead, to be timid to be […]
