It Has Been a While…

It has been a while, since I have written anything other than grocery lists or to do lists. Ha! Sometimes I think, it is probably because I haven’t felt anything for a while, but that can’t be true. Right? We feel something everyday but of course not everything is worth writing about.

I also have been quite busy lately, that even when I do get a strong urge to write down something worth noting down, something comes up, or I get distracted and thus the moment is gone and so are the words.

Let’s see how long that phase lasts. (Sign)

We Are Only Human

When you put someone through, way more than they can take, they are tend to show you some sort of reaction. And then, you don’t get to play the victim

We can only take as much as we can. After all, we are only human.

Words. Safe. Head

Keep it in your head, it is safer there.

The words, keep them in your head. When you are angry, frustrated, or in any sort of pain, don’t spit them out or even murmur.

Be careful, when you are around souls with beating hearts.

R.E.S.P.E.C.T

Respect people, no matter if you know them or not, respect them anyway.  It might not matter to you much but it could mean everything to them. 

Be sensitive about others’ feelings and emotions.

Which Path to Choose…

There is one and only one creator of this world and everyone in it. He gave us life and He is only one who can take it away. He decides who gets to live ’till they are 90 and, who has to say their goodbyes even before they open their eyes to this world. 

This world that He created for us is only a place of trials and tribulations, with its ups and downs. It is just a temporary stop, we are not here to stay.

Now, it might feel like years and centuries passing by, but when your time will come, it will all be gone in a blink of an eye. 

It is all in His hands and will always be. We believe this, right? We should, because there is no reason why we shouldn’t. 

Let’s make the most of this temporary stop. You are allowed to celebrate the life that He blessed you with; don’t forget to welcome those around you, regardless of classes, color and race. And while you are at it, prepare well for your final destination, the permanent stop. He has created us and now it is up to us, to make Him proud of His creations.

He granted us with life and showed us how to differentiate right from wrong. Now He has left the decision to us; whether we want to go right or left, it is up to us; whether we want to follow the footsteps of angels or demons, it is up to us; whether we choose heaven or hell, it is up to us.

But don’t you think you are all alone in this worldDropping clues, here and there, He is always with us. He will never desert His beings, unless we decide to walk with the devil. 

We are not angels, we are allowed to make mistakes but we should correct them as soon as we can, because we never know when our time is up. And once our time has come, there will no do-over. 

None of us want to end up in hell, heaven is what we seek, what we should seek. So, let’s prepare well and show ‘Our Creator’ that we really deserve to be among His blessed souls.

Don’t You Give Up, Sweetie

I hear you, sweetie

 

You have been hurt,

Way too many times.

 

You are wounded and scarred for life.

You are down and lost without a light.

 

You think you had enough,

And the end is all you see.

 

Gripping the bottle of pills, 

You sob on how it has turned out to be.

 

Taking them seems to be the only choice,

To you, this all ends here and now.

 

But honey, just hear me out,

Before you go about ending your life.

 

Life is not a bed of roses, never been.

Rather it is a long road of thorns, 

With little shower of flowers now and then.

 

This world ain’t a place to get comfortable.

You were sent here for a reason,

Find it, and hold on to it.

 

Hold on to it, and find yourself,

Hold on to it, and stand up,

Hold on to it, and fight,

 

Don’t you see, sweetie

All these scars, 

Make you someone really special,

 

The monsters in the dark,

The evils surrounding us,

You have seen it all.

 

The world needs you,

You can be their savior,

Their hope, their only ray of sunshine.

 

Don’t you give up,

This isn’t the finishing line,

There is a lot of fight left in you.

Don’t you give up, sweetie.

Not just yet.

Choose Your Path Carefully

Instead of judging people, try to be a little nice.

If you are blessed with things others don’t possess, that doesn’t mean you get to have the upper hand.

Like, 

  • If you have more money and you can afford things some people can’t; it doesn’t mean you have the right to gloat about it.

Or

  • If you are blessed with a perfect body as compared to your fellowmen, it doesn’t give you any right to bully someone else for their ‘type of body.

Or

  • If you are at a higher post, and you think it is part of your job to be mean and bossy so you can keep people in line. Well, there is a difference in being authoritative and a jerk. Learn to differentiate.

There are million examples, where people think they are better than their fellowmen but they can’t be any more wrong.

If you are blessed with something, be thankful and stay down to earth. Believe me, that will be gain you more respect than being a tormentor and a jerk.

Choose carefully.

Who Would Have Guessed?

You had her figured out?

On what basis?

 

You mostly see her with her head in the book,

And when not,

Her eyes are always studying the ground.

 

How can you know where she hides,

When you have never looked inside those eyes?

 

You treat her like everybody else does,

A bookworm, a nerd, a little nobody.

 

You hide it from the world,

But in that heart of yours, 

You carry a soft spot for her.

 

You haven’t figured it out why

Maybe it’s because she is not the only one in hiding

 

In your effort to be a part of this world,

You are ignoring the most significant piece of your life.

 

Who said you can’t be together, just because you aren’t alike.

Who said a guy like you and a girl like her can’t be together.

 

The world is gonna say things,

People are gonna disapprove,

But that’s what they do.

 

Your heart is telling you to take a chance.

But you are in doubt,

What if it is not a two way thing?

 

You get your answer fast,

When she raises her head

And your eyes meet hers

 

Holding each other gaze,

You enter each other’s worlds,

 

She is a not all that you thought she was,

And you are not all that you pretend to be.

 

Who would have guessed,

You will find your safe place in her.

Who would have guessed,

She will find her savior in you.

 

Who would have guessed,

You two are the missing pieces of the same picture.

 

Who would have guessed???

This is totally fictional. 😉

 I don’t know where it came from, maybe a side-affect of the book I have been reading. 😛

But it makes a good story. Don’t you think?

Our Land, Our Home, Our Heart

14 August, huh?

It is almost at our doorsteps. What are you planning to do on this special day? And I am talking about things apart from decorations and fireworks. Yeah, we should celebrate this day. After all, 14 August is our Independence day; a day of love and sacrifice. But I am thinking more along the lines of doing something productive for this land. We should give something back to this land we live on. Don’t you think?

We can start with little things; plant something, throw the trash/waste in the bin, water the ground and along with all of this, be good to our fellowmen. A big number of us already do carry out these acts, but at the same time, a big number of us do not. Can we join our hands on this: work for a better Pakistan?

Millions of people sacrificed their lives to give us the land we now call our home. I think it’s about time we start to own it and treat it like one. 

You know hoisting a flag, or decorating your houses with small ones, once a year, is not enough. It does show our passion and joy we feel for our country. But it mustn’t be restricted to just one day a year. What you say? Agree?

We stand under this flag as one because

We are PAKISTANIS FOREVER!

Troubled Thoughts

Sometimes, I wish I had someone who would listen to me with patience and understand what I am going through, what I am trying to say… But when someone says that, I am listening, share, I just go numb. And sometimes people take this as my excuse to attract attention and that I have nothing to say, that I am some pathetic attention seeker…

I have heard this so many times that NOW, even I doubt myself. But I am a human too, right? So, I can’t have it together all the time. I don’t really blame others, its me who is supposed to be blamed, it is always me…I just wish that all these things that I write about, I can speak out, with actual words.

I know I have wounds and they are stinging. And I know they are not imaginary, they are there but I don’t know how to let them out.

Sometimes, I sit alone and reflect on all those nagging thoughts bringing me down. Like now. A tear or two make their way down my cheeks but I wipe them as quickly as I can before anyone sees them. It has been quite a time since I have cried my eyes out without any fear or concern to be found in that state.

I am gonna be okay, I know that too. I want to be okay, so, I try to get back to normal as soon as I can. I just sometimes wish, I had that someone who would hug me and tell me to let it all out without any fear, who would make me feel like I also matter, no matter how clumsy, naive and dumb I can be, I still matter.

I guess I have to be that someone for myself, for now.
