It's raining right now. I have always loved the rain. Closing my eyes and listening to the sound of rain,it feels like all my worries are washed away with it. In rainy days sitting infront of my house and enjoying the rain, it gives me an indescribable pleasure. Nature after the rain is always been a happysight for me, it is very peaceful.

(This is not literature. Or anything... I don't know !?)
I want to live a simple life In which I love and I'm being loved It was like that throughout my childhood Caring and sharing was a usual Concern and comfort was a guarantee Growing up was a beautiful story in itself "She has a promising future " They said "But she has to overcome lots of hardships" That's obvious and so was The ways of this hypocritical soceity The path of success can't be so easy So I found the supporting hands disappearing one by one Some came back to prod and play Some tried to push me down Some clapped when I slipped occasionally Some smiles were too honest when I cried It was so hard to concentrate on education When all the people around me did was to Either find the minute faults in me Or find my dreams and ambitions silly Cause " Do you think you can do 'that' ? " It's too much already now, you should stop" Were they even aware of their masks slipping off ? And I found who is who exactly Realizing their true colors changed me too I can't be the old carefree sweet girl with them As I don't trust them anymore Social gatherings were just an excuse To tease and question me and my life " Degrees won't help you in life, learn to cook" " Being smart in studies isn't enough, be smart in life too " So studying wasn't a favorable topic for them I can't cry in public, my character was again questioned as They didn't see me crying when my grandmother left us... When I was stressing about my thesis And final exams, all their concern was, " Are you even eating anything ? You have to marry ! " Finishing exams and after relaxing in vacation There will always be some events to gossip " You are getting chubby, don't eat so much Or no one will marry you !! " Seriously, how is having food and marriage related ? I feel like a failure everytime I look in the mirror Because they have fixed a measurement for me And I don't know those numbers... So I stopped attending functions all together Why ? Why should I get ready and go meet people Just to be a topic of their not so constructive criticism ? We hang lemons and chillies so that Misfortune won't knock on our door But they always find reasons to come inside Carrying clouds of discouragement for me I'm always either sleeping or bathing - yes my escape They don't know I can't sleep on my own naturally And I need to take long showers to wash away Their gaze and words which torture me My hair would have grown long like Rapunzel But during a tour while in school A stranger caressed my hair, called it lovely I didn't realize his intention then, but when I did I cut half my hair with so much disgust Which became a habit later, now it's usual Anything bad or sad happens, I'll find the scissors first They say when it's time for me to settle down An astrologer will find someone suitable for me Really ? Who asked them to decide things for me ? Where is my choise and my freedom in any of these ? Why is everyone so interested in cornering And questioning me ? Whats my value as a person? Am I not worthy without considering my beauty, educational qualification or Marital status ? Why is my heart and happiness not a priority ?
// How many people in this society can say They have provided encouragement, help and support For a girl's dream - her education, her choices, her decisions , her life itself ! //
That's what we need... I need Encouragement for whatever we dream Understanding how difficult it is Not judging based on looks and shape Not burdening with great expectations Just accept a person exactly how they are
I don't know any solution for this I'm in my room... Shutting out everyone and everything... Listening to music and reading what catches my attention... I don't know what will happen to me in future... All I know is I want to just fade away...
