I wish to live in the world,
Where I am my only judge.
A world so free,
That my demons leave me…..
I wish to empower,
Myself & my beauty…
Only, in that dream world,
I’ll get my due for my silent duty….
I wish to live in the land of NOT men,
I wish in that world, I am beautiful.
That world would give me validation.
More than I ever needed…..
In that world, I won’t have to prove,
I won’t have to dread,
I won’t have to be so needy.
For in that world,
I would be alone, free & happy.
I wish to live in the world ,
Where I feel ME & my demons feel trapped.
A world, where my mind is in my grasp.
A world where the world is nothing more,
Than an imagination…
A world of peace, a fantasy and
A result of a tiresome abomination.
I want to go to that world,
Where my heart doesn’t ache.
A world of love, not pain.
A world of empathy, not gain…
I wish I could create a world of my own,
Without violence and crimes.
I would create friendship that rhymes,
With life and soul to behold.
I would erase betrayal and horizon.
A world, where we walk on the sky and fly on land.
A world of fire to breathe and water to mend.
I wish to erase success in that world.
A world, where journey is a celebration.
I want to live in a world of laughter, tears of joy &
Hearts filled with love and admiration.
I’d call it My World,
Because nobody would tell me what to do.
Nobody would leave me,
And nobody would hurt me, or say they didn’t mean to!
My World would be an epitome of happiness.
A world where sorrow is the alien,
And heartbreak is not just another failure….
Where Love is a power and not a weakness,
Where power is not a privilege & is out of existence.
Yet, It’s better to not go there, we’ll be living in a mirror afar,
For in that world, life would flourish with broken hearts….
Thanks for reading. Namaste.
I could still hear the cheer. I could still feel the lights on my face. I could still smile at the possibility. I could still be a Rockstar! This was my another life. A life un-lived.
I still sing sometimes, but that passion is missing now. The soul lacks in transferring the sound waves through a listener’s heart. It could only reach to an ear or two. People could still praise me for the voice I have & the songs I sing. But they would never praise me for it touched their soul. Because I knew, it didn’t have the soul anymore. A soul for a soul, remember? If you don’t give a soul, you won’t connect to a soul either.
No matter how much you want it. No matter how much work you want to give into it, so that you can fill up the years you’ve lost without it, nothing will ever be enough. Nothing will ever fill up the void in your heart.
The emptiness I feel when I see someone perform on stage. That heart ache I feel every time someone tells me they’re a singer. That voice in my head that tells me, “I could’ve done it better”. It never goes away. It’s constant knock annoys me sometimes, but mostly, reminds me of what could’ve been!
Then, reality creeps in and all I’m left with, are tears and regret, sometimes guilt too. “What if, have I worked harder or stayed focused, or the passion wouldn’t have been lost?”
No, that doesn’t matter now.
I have a broken dream, that I can live, every time I close my eyes.
A Poetic Rant.
Let Dreams be dreams.
Don’t let them scream.
It’ll be worse than it seems.
They put pressure on our hearts,
And are empowered to control what we want!
They ruin reality,
And don’t let life be.
They ask us to hustle,
And in the process, we even forget ourselves.
Dreams manipulate our needs into desire,
Before we know it, our greed burns up like raging fire.
Dreams tell us to work work work,
All work & no play, makes us dull dull dull.
Life would’ve been easier without the power of the subconscious mind,
Neuroscience would be less complicated, & brain exercises would’ve gotten more time!
With the power of imagination, the human race survived,
But “with great power comes great responsibility” , is an understated line!
This scam that our brain runs, is one of a kind!
“Dream big and achieve big”- is the fraud of the century,
You DO the hard work with an ambition and not a dream itinerary!!
The time spent on dreams and daydreams alone,
Is half-life of an average human being.
What’s good in wasting time on senseless scenarios,
Where you’re your only team!
Dream to be a writer, painter, singer, dancer — sound like a dream !
Real life is the antidote to delusional realities.
We can achieve these ‘ambitions’ if we work hard & have the skills at heart,
But we can never win in life, if we keep pretending to be smart!
Be smart and let the dreams be dreams alone,
Don’t push yourselves so hard before you’re grown.
Dream-land is a nice escape from the troubles of the world,
Yet, only in reality, you can touch the ground from above.
Thanks for reading. Namaste.
