    If I ever had a chance
    to choose my end,
    I'd be floating in the water,
    the waves making me smile,
    as they rock me back and forth,
    Lulling me to a restful sleep,
    the sky would look warm,
    the sun grinning at me,
    telling me it's okay,
    That I won't be all alone...

    Gradually, I'd go deeper,
    Explore the beauty beneath,
    The water turning bluer,
    Hidden from the world,
    Listening to the age old mysteries
    of sunk ships and secret possessions,
    Satiating my curiosity,
    The resplendent life inside,
    Succumbing to their fate...

    And eventually, I'll reach,
    The deepest, darkest pit
    Within the vast entirety
    Of the blue, black, abyss
    Where I lay beyond the world,
    In peace, happiness, and content,
    Accepting the truth of life,
    And pleased with the outcome...
    I lay succumbing to my choice of fate...

    An ocean is a myriad of secrets and treasures, all beneath the insidious...

    Its mysterious yet beautiful
    Its dangerous yet intriguing
    Its exhilarating yet calming
    Its deathly yet hypnotizing

    Promise me dearest
    That when the night sinks in
    Dim yet pleasant
    You'll look at the lustrous stars
    Close your eyes
    And imagine me,
    By your side
    You won't ever feel disheartened
    For I'll be there
    Like the wind
    Gently caressing your face
    Softly kissing your lips
    And hugging you tight
    Quietly whispering against your ear
    That it'll be alright

    Even when I won't be
    I'll always be there
    By your side
    Humming our favorite tune
    Guiding through light
    And lulling you to sleep
    When you need me
    Darling, that's my promise
    You won't ever be lonely
    Coz, I'll be there for you
    By your side
    I'll be right there

    I know it's a long post and I hope it'll be worth the read. Thank you for your time.

    People change....with age, with experience, with circumstances, with people..... We all change, as life moves on, as we go ahead, embarking on different adventures and emotions. We have different roads to go to, different destinations to reach. Sometimes, the situation forces us on a particular path, irrespective of whether we wish to go there. Other times, we choose our own path, unbeknownst to the threats we may find in the way, unbeknownst to the fact that the road may or may not lead to the destination we desire to reach, the dreams we wish to fulfill and the success we hope to attain. We do not know what the future holds. No one knows it. But the way we plan our next day, a week after, a few months later, a couple of years and our whole future, its all hope.......we hope to live, we plan to live. And we definitely plan to live our lives a particular way.

    But not everyone gets their wishes fulfilled. And not every time things happen the way we want them to. We all have our own tests to survive, pain to endure and problems to overcome. We find ourselves in situations and we are stuck. This was not in the plan. What to do now? We were not prepared for this. Everyone has their own set of circumstances and struggles where they can't find a way out without altering their so called perfect dream. We all are needed to take a detour at some point in life, so that we could think better, plan better and find a better solution, for a better future.

    There are many who give in when they are not able to cope up......when they can't decide what to do next. They can't survive in this situation and they can't find a way out. So they give in. They lack the patience and will to fight, or perhaps they grew tired of fighting, without seeing any results. Other times, they just continue to sustain....not live, just sustain. They continue to exist, not showing any emotions, doing whatever best they could think of, at that point of time, and just get on with it. They wake up every morning, without any hopes, because they are now exhausted of hoping. They realize that hopes only hold you back, they just prove how pathetic you and your situation is. For whatever reasons, they stop hoping. They do their work of the day, eat whenever they could and sleep at night without any dreams. Because, like hope, they have also lost their faith in dreams. So they continue to exist in a particular routine.

    But then, things change. Not every time it changes to good, but after a long time of existing, they have come to accept the truth. They see things happen differently. For so long, they have lived the routine that even the slightest change seems like a big one. They get a chance to leave their existing life and go their old life, to the life which would be related to their old one, to their old acquaintances and friends and relations. They get a chance to go back. Now, after so long, they finally have a choice - to stay the way they are right now, or move towards betterment. They are tempted to leave at first dawn, they are all packed and waiting for the minutes to go by. They couldn't sleep. And somewhere, during their sleepless night, they come to a realization, they come to an acceptance. They need to change according to the demands of life. They need to change their way of living, they need to change their expectations from life and they need to change their perspective of life. Its not always white or black. Its not always good or bad. Sometimes, there is also a grey, which people usually don't see. But when they do, they realize that things are fine. They are fine. As long as they have the chance to change their future, they will be fine. They are in a better place now. They are a better person now. They are not the same person they used to be. They have changed. Life has changed them. And somehow they can't imagine themselves to go back. They feel they have moved forward with their lives and they like it here. They don't want to change anything, not right now. Because this is how they wish to stay. They would change and mould as and when required, because its the way of life. But they won't go back. They will move forward but would never go back. They are at peace now because they know that at the end, it will all be worth it.

    Change is necessary, it teaches you great lessons, it make you realize how little you know of the world, it helps you accept and adjust, it makes you feel all kinds of emotions, it gives you a different kind of hope, a mature kind where you are not stuck in your forever, but you understand the importance and value of everything. Change teaches you things that you have no other way of learning and understanding. Change makes you mature, in your thoughts, in your mind, in your wisdom. Change makes you wise. And finally you embrace the change, to live further. Because what is the point of living, when you don't let life change you?

    "Life's altered you, as it's altered me.
    What would be the point of living if we didn't let life change us?"
    - Downton Abbey

    I have seen the soothing blue of the ocean, while walking on the sand and felt its coarse dampness on my vamp.

    I have felt the mist of bedewed grass and the nip of the crisp air around my eyelets, as I traversed through the moist curtilage.

    I have paced on the cemented pavements, fraying my outsole off, as I wait, rather impatiently, for my partner, right outside the cafe.

    I have experienced the bare callousness of my owner's skin on my insole, when he was late for his routine and wore me in a hurry.

    I have endured the sweat and filth on my collar, when I was out on a run, on the wet and muddy grounds after the downpour.

    I have bore the wetness and sharpness of tongue and teeth on my toe, of lovely Max, when he most often tried to chew on me as his dinner.

    I have been pierced by the prick through my midsole, when I was all torn and worn, to be given a second chance to life.

    I have undergone washes, scrubbing and scraping all over, to make me clean and keep me longer.

    I have suffered through a lot, and been amazed at plenty, for that has been my story.

    Some think me sleazy, some think me sangfroid, but I say, I have worked hard and now I'm proud.

    I have walked onto graveyards,
    trampled on soil and grime,
    run marathons on boulevards,
    flown in an airplane sublime,

    I have waltzed on the Elvis'
    Felt the rush in the bar
    I have travelled on the ferris
    Watching the shore afar

    I have danced around the meadows
    Made memories on strolls
    Digged through the burrows
    In hopes of finding goals

    I have seen the break of day
    And the blackness of the night
    The world, a beautiful ballet
    Under the esoteric twilight

    I have been trodden on
    With no regard bestowed
    I have played a loyal pawn
    Even when pushed and towed

    But when you think of me
    Think me just a cypher
    Even if you agree
    That I have been your anchor

    Coz darling, if I could ever speak
    I'd say I had a good time
    The earth a place of mystique
    A fine creation of water, soil and grime

    Up above the hills
    Among the field of daffodils
    A manic echo heard
    Oh, it was the beast, fettered

    Finally caught blue and battered
    Prayers of the ton answered
    The danger now terminated
    'Twas the night of the decade

    Vestures covered with dirt, bloodstained
    The strength from the fight regained
    Gathered, the great unwashed
    To see the beast all squashed

    Excitement mixed with agitation
    Condemning sense of alleviation
    Safety and security now accomplished
    This moment, they celebrated and cherished

    With heads held high, and egos down
    Danced, feasted and laughed the whole town
    The death of the beast still beguiled
    'Twas the end of the untamed and wild
    ' Twas the merry call of the wild

    I'm not sure if it makes sense to you guys. It just came to my mind and I went on with it. Thank you for your challenge ma' am.

    The voice thundered, feral and riled

    The stars shine down even in darkness, they give you light. They give you hope, a hope that the future may be better.

    Yes, dreams do come true, if you believe in them.

    I wanted to use Vincent van Gogh's " The Starry Night" as my background for this write-up. If you guys feel that it doesn't suit, or is inappropriate, let me know and I'll change it. Thank you for your time.

    Innumerous stars
    etched in the dark sky,
    An opus of picturesque illusion,
    Brightening the cosmos
    with galore luminance
    after twilight,
    Enticing people to dream,
    A hope, a promise
    that they come true,
    only if you believe.

    Clamor of incomprehensible thoughts
    Hopeless emotion, incessant torment
    Adorned with numerous scars
    Overwhelming desire for hiatus
    Subjugated, resentful demise

    You're my most favorite lyric and my least favorite tune...

    Lyrics I can listen with my heart,
    But the tune I never liked,
    Like an electric guitar,
    You seep into my heart
    Boldly, fearlessly,

    You make me unable
    to bury its haughtiness,
    overlook its audacity,
    And, escape its madness
    You make it unseemingly difficult
    To forget its melody

    For, it has already pierced my heart
    In ways unimaginable
    And inevitable...

    You're like a song
    that stays on the
    tip of my tongue
    all the time,
    yet I don't remember
    its name...

  • passionbookworm 6w

    Oh no! Don't do it
    Don't do it, I tell you
    I've been there
    I've seen you
    Through all the pain
    you've endured
    Through all the fight
    you put up
    And through all the strength
    you showed
    I've seen you
    through it all
    Your every cry
    to feel more
    to hang on
    to stop this anguish
    to accept defeat
    and to feel numb...

    Yet, you bounce back
    Harder than ever
    After being trampled on
    time and again
    You still rise above
    Coz that's who you are
    Coz that's what you have become
    Strong, brave and fearless
    You haven't give up yet
    Even after everything
    Coz you're not easily taken

    So I ask, why?
    Why now?
    When you've been trying
    To cross the tunnel
    And reach the end
    When you're already midway
    After suffering through
    so many problems
    When you've fought
    so long for yourself
    Why give up now,
    when you're not far
    When you're so near
    to your destination
    Why are you letting
    all your efforts go vain?

    When you just need
    to be strong for some
    Just endure a little bit more
    And you'll be there
    Where you wanna be
    You'll reach the light
    And you'd be free
    So I say it again
    Don't do it
    Don't give up
    For happiness is
    the ultimate goal
    And you're already
    halfway through
    Don't give up
    For you can see the light
    And breath better
    For you'll emerge
    A better being
    A stronger, braver
    And wiser soul
    For you'll fall in love
    With your own person

    Right now,
    You just need to keep going
    For some more
    And we'll be there
    We'll be there
