School days are definitely the days of joy, learning and fun for most of all, but not necessarily for everyone. Some of us have to fight out with people's judgements, opinions and criticisms just as I did
1. In today's generation, being a vegetarian is a joke and I was that joke. Being the only vegetarian in my whole class. Some judged me as grass eating goat while some questioned, how can I survive without a piece of chicken . While some had the opinion that I definitely believe in sin and virtuous deeds . But no one could never understand the reason of being vegetarian //I could not hear someone's cry because of the greed of my tongue //
2. Being a non - alcoholic and non -smoker lead to some rubbish questions in those small minds such as how can I live such a boring life and a full life. For those people, the real adventure of life is in the taste of wine and the smoke of a ciggarettes.
Since from the very starting of learning, we are been told by our parents and teachers and it is also written in our text books that "Smoking and drinking are injurious to health ". But not everyone give a damn about it, For many of us they are just useless facts and we don't really apply it in our daily life, but it had to be applied for becoming better learners for life.
//Stuffs written in textbook are not just facts, but a tool to build a strong foundation of values for ourselves //
3. When you go through people's thoughts, opinions and judgements, there goes a tornado of emotions and depressed feelings inside your mind. All you want to do is you want to cry. But this fake world , crying is something abnormal and they judged me as something sensitive, weak and insane. And the word " Sensitive " felt like a curse , and it broked me down into the pieces. Crying is how your heart speaks, when your lips can't explain the pain you feel.
//In the moments of happiness, as laughing is considered normal, Similarly in the moment of sadness and pain ; Crying is not abnormal and it's normal //
There's a hurricane of thoughts that run around my not so perfect mind I build and rebuild the memories of my dream last night over a cup of coffee Black and little burnt ,yet you pat on your back for making it still better than the last one. I sip with a smirk on my lips and lines of regret over my forehead. There is silence on the nights I binge watch a movie and I think of all good reason my life is exactly like the one in the movie, independent freedom and loneliness lying around the pillows of my bed. I dust them each morning , Moaning to the memories they settle back each night with the tears that burst over them.
I sleep over the drunk thoughts that put you together for one last time and all times you decide to company me along the sadness you left me with.
I gently rub my head thinking about them in all possible ways, I put all the sad metaphors that occurred my way on the bad side of my journal, You and I where never meant to be together there. The agony that came along with them,I slipped them down my throat with a handful full of happy songs I sometimes wish to listen. I carefully place the metaphors that stated love and jotted them down the other side of my journal. Carefully I pick all the words that meant happiness and weaved a poem down to you.
You placed them close to your heart and slipped a fire against the paper, Nothing but ashes defined all the love .
You've now replaced the hurricane of unknown thought to your only thoughts. I'll die to your memories Or live with a mind of war.
Racism runs deep down in this earth. An abstract form of devil which needs to be captured. God has made us in different colours but he had embedded the same beating heart and thoughtful mind in us. Then, what power to we hold to discriminate anyone? To make them feel inferior?, let their voice down? Or take their rights away?
Im deeply heartwrenched. What in a world have we started living in.! What sad days is being enveloped into, Are we really becoming so blind and cold hearted!
This needs to be stopped! Everyone has the right to be heard! All colours of life matter!
