Rainy days

I still remember those rainy days,

When nights were better than those regular days.

Being alone never made me feel lonely.

I did have a friend and that was me; one and only.

 

Dusk seemed brighter and more peaceful than dawn.

I am still  here but those  moments have long gone.

All the right things now seem wrong.

Late at night, I  am  wandering in this empty lawn.

 

Walking underneath this starry night.

I wait for an unexpected miracle to strike.

Reality is not a fairy tale,

I keep walking as I wish to confront my fate.

 

Hope keeps us strong and alive.

Till the day comes when we face our  demise.

A sad reality looms over us and wait for arrival,

As we fight and struggle everyday for our survival.

Why do you write if no one reads?

Why do you write if no one reads? Few people have asked me this question.

So here I want to reason why it is such an important thing for me to keep writing.

It feels like I have pulled off a massive weight off my chest. My mind does crazy things and I have a tendency to over think. Writing always helps me to process my thoughts and be well connected with them. I do not do this to please others but myself.

Often some people do tell me that what I am saying is quite right but then they question why I do not always follow my own advice if I know so much. The simple answer is it is the first step to acknowledge the stuff that brings you down and knowing what you can do to change it but we humans have emotions as well. Only knowing and being aware is not enough. We need time to better ourselves as well. Life is like a rollercoaster ride. There are always ups and down and that is what most people actually fail to realize. We experience happiness, sadness, fear, love, rejection, dejection, loneliness, excitement, anxiety etc. and this is what makes it all wonderful yet terrifying at the same time. So, thinking that wisdom and intelligence are going to cover your every flaw is a misconception because human beings are flawed and they make mistakes even if they don’t want to.

Coming back to my original point of why I write even if no one is willing to read, I do it for fun, for the pure joy of it and that is rare stuff. Finding something which you can do just for the heck of it is the most satisfying and calm feeling that we can experience.

5 things a “Weird Kid” learns

As a child, I often thought that there was something wrong with me. I did not fit in with my peers and I was socially awkward because it was hard for me to initiate a conversation. There was always something unusual and mystic about me which led people to believe I was a weird kid. Throughout the years of childhood and adolescence and now being a young adult I have learned that there are certain things a weird kid learns.

  • You get used to rejection: One thing a weird kid surely learns is that it becomes easier to face rejection. Most kids are immature and they do not want to deal with someone who might come across as a weird kid. It is cruel but it surely prepares you for the fact that a lot of people are going to stay away from you and you will face rejection. The good thing is it’s not that bad after all in the grand scheme of things.
  • You will find true friends: While it is possible no one wants to hang out with you, it is also a probability that out of so many kids, some might feel what you feel or may be more understanding about how you feel. The ones that do stick by you are those people you’d want to stick with for your entire life.
  • You’re aware that you can self improve: While there is nothing particularly wrong being weird, you always know that at some point you’ll have to make few changes to adapt to the environment and move forward in order to develop social relationships. Re inventing yourself can turn out to be life changing and motivational for you and others.
  • You embrace your uniqueness: This is something which is a valuable life lesson and a lot of people take a lot of time to learn this. However, being a weird kid you have to embrace that you’re outside the normality of your surroundings which allows you to accept and embrace your uniqueness.
  • You do things which no one else does: Well, this surely stands out. Normal people do normal things. Strange people do strange things. Life becomes more interesting once there is something crazy and strange happening. Strange people do creative stuff and thinks outside the box. That is a lovely thing about being weird.

To all the weird kids out there, you are awesome and don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise. You are truly amazing and can do great stuff. Just remember to embrace yourself and make the best of your weirdness. After all, you’re mystical creatures. Be weird. Be strange.
