Just woke up from a dream.

Life has a peculiar way of telling things. You never know what’s waiting around the corner. When everything seems to be against you, when all seems lost, the happiest-moment-of-your-life happens. It surprises you right when you least expect it. That’s life.

It is important to realize that the good and the bad go hand in hand. For it is impossible to appreciate that which is good, if you have no clue what its like to manage living with difficulties.

Sometimes we fail to notice the small things in life. The things that we take for granted. But how often do we pause to think of the people who make it possible, and the sacrifices they make for us? Friends, siblings, parents – people who make an impact in nearly all aspects of our lives, slowly turning into an integral part of it, yet remaining largely unnoticed.

Reflecting on this greatly increased my respect for them. And I stopped looking at the bad- the times when they hurt me(but didn’t mean to), and started to look at all that they do for me, without expecting anything in return. And I’ll never understand how they can put others’ happiness before their own.

Just woke up from a dream.

And then it hit me.

Screams and Whispers

Gunshots in the distance,
Blood on my hands.

Walking alone in the moonlight.

Whispers in the dark,
Screams in silence.

Drops of rain on the window,
Lightning storms in the sky.

So many things to do,
Such little time.

Dreaming of bliss,
Waking up from a nightmare.

Helping others smile,
Crying in the corner of the room.

All the time in the world,
Nothing to do at all.

Gunshots in the distance,
Blood on my hands.

Traces of Desire

"Thanks a lot”, she said.

"You’re welcome”, I replied.

And that smile told me something I had never realized before- she knew me much better than I thought she ever would.
