"I am not an EMO."
I giggle within myself
when I observe judgemental
people without empathy
stressing so much on logic
turning blind to other's feelings
How funny it seems
their own emotions get triggered
turning into rage and disappointment
For feelings and emotions
is not just about weeping,
lovey dovey, fluffy, sentiments.
When you get triggered to the external stimuli
feeling angry, jealous, greedy, insecure
these too come under emotions
Show me a single human
who never felt all these
For we are created as humans
Not as some robots lifeless
Just that some feel things deeply
Expressing it openly
And others shove it down deep within
Wearing fake mask of strength.
thinking it fit only for the weak
Oh! did I mention?
fear and arrogance too are emotions
I don't understand when you say
'I am not an emo'!
Do you mean to say
You are a robot and not human with heartbeats?
Courage, confidence, truth, kindness
are just as valid display of emotions.
Know this that emotions never die
Suppressing them show up as diseases
Cancer, heart attack, blood pressure,
diabetes, depression, anxiety,
chronic pain and illnesses of all sort?
These are some consequences of
ignoring our emotions
Thinking them to be all fake.
But every emotion releases
a chemical substance in our body
Like energy moving freely,
getting trapped into the blood stream
Affecting, altering our DNA
and body physiology in the long run.
