    Martyr

    I feel better today
    Pick my self up before I fray
    Bite their hands when they tell me to pray
    You're not my martyr
    You're a disgrace

    Go

    I'm weary
    And I am free
    No posterity to worry about.
    I have a choice.
    Most do not.
    Fate led me to this freedom
    Never having children.
    I see headlines, scripted
    Injecting fear as they inject
    Unknown concoctions
    Into your babies.
    I am hurting for you.
    Your choice and theirs has been
    Stolen.
    Your body is no longer your own.
    Logic no longer stands.
    You say you got protected, yet you need protection from others who are not yet protected.
    Does this make sense?
    I am only an observer.
    I'm in a unique position. I have been in a subconsciously self-imposed quarantine for years now. I do not leave my home. Ever. Agoraphobia is the contagion's neighbor.
    And so, I spectate and speculate.
    And I'm not that woman that blindly trusts, not for many years now.
    I can understand both sides. I believe in autonomy. I believe you should choose for yourself. As adults. But now your children? Where do you draw the line? They are your most important beautiful creations. Your absolute responsibility to care and protect.
    You must begin to follow reason. Admit that something is not right here anymore. It's been this way a long while now. White sun instead of yellow, air no longer clear, sky no longer blue. Mandela no longer dead nor alive.
    Simulation of what we once were.
    You think me irrational, crazy even. Perhaps you are right if I get measured by today's standards. But I am not from this place. I was of the before. Where now their are only simulated shadows puppeteering existence. But much like children getting all the answers from the A.I. yet lacking the life knowledge to process that answer...this current time seems like that. Built on old ways and fading memories of old times, but lacking depth, meaning or weight. This place is paper ready to burn.
    So why am I so concerned about everyone else? Your children? Free will? Autonomy? Choice?
    I suppose I'm old enough to remember that it's what we all fought so hard to maintain. And without those things...are we all not slaves?
    Just free thinking here, while it's still allowed.
    Tick tock.
    I've got one choice.
    I can stay or go.
    But you need to stay, for your babies...so find your values and get ready to stand up for them.
    My best wishes are with you all.
    And this, this is my way of standing up. Thinking and writing and sharing. It's what I can do.
    It's all I can do. It's the least I can do, for all of us.
    I'm not here for likes or hearts or any other electronic phantom of perceived adoration. I'm here to leave a record of what once was. From one tiny spec, one pixel of time itself.

    Star

    Some pretends to be "moonlight"
    That's not u.
    Some are actual star
    That's u.
    Looking at u,
    Finds my smile in u,
    As beautiful as
    Like sky with scatter stars
    And sparkle of u.

    Rise up

    The Lord is giving his people a much greater vision.
    Amongst all the chaos and division ,
    God is raising up Joshua's to complete His mission. 
    Raising up sons and daughters to stand in the gap and pray.
    Esther's and Elijah's who are listening to what the Lord has to say. 
    The prophets of God against the prophets of Baal.
    Jesus will always prevail.
    The plan of the enemy will ultimately fail.
    Some many voices..so little choices .
    With all the panic and death all around..will faith still be found?
    The peace of the Father is the only thing holding his people together.
    His shield of faith protecting them from the stormy and icy weather .
    The people  are done with powerless religion. The people are craving for more than  just man-made tradition.

    Bohat jee liya yahan k logo k liyai
    Khud k liyai jeena hi bhool gayai
    Dusru ki khushi k liyai
    Aapni khushi ko mitta diya
    Afsoos hai kyun samajh baithay acha yahan saru ko
    Koyi yaha acha na
    Khud k jaisay dostt ki talash thi
    Na mil sakha yahan koyi waisa
    Maloom na kiss moad pay hai zindagi khadi mere
    Kyun imtihaan lay rahi hai har dafa
    Yu toh hum mai sabar karnay ki badi jagah hai
    Par roo laita hai dil mera din-o-raat
    Kyun na yahan koyi mere jaisa
    Kyun na yahan koyi acha aur samajh nai wala!

    Why does the society defines the character of a sex worker only with respect to their profession?

    In today's world where everyone and everything is moving towards digitalization and modernization there are people who have stuck their mentality level to such stoops that they cannot rise above it. Living in the twenty-first century, where people have become so open minded about LGBTQ, mental issues the contradictions are why not change your perspective about sex workers?

    Sex workers are humans, they are just like us, flesh and bones yet they are degraded in many ways. The on-screen representation of sex workers have lead people to misjudge their appearance. They live a mundane life, follow a definite routine and have the same physical appearance then why this false binary opposition?

    If you're a sex worker, you are a bad women because it's a taboo to have an intimate relationship with someone outside the marriage. This is the mentality of people who create this false binary opposition of good and bad women. What do we know about them ? Who are we to judge them ?

    A person cannot feel what the other is going through until they step into their shoes. It's a lot to process. All this time we have been educated in school about rights and free will still our paradoxical state of mind won't shut until we say some cut throat slang and offensive words to those sex workers.

    You need to see beyond your thinking to accept the fact that a woman is a sex worker just by profession and probably had no choice or any source of income to raise her children or for her own living. They are independent and have the choice to leave the job as and when they want without being questioned. Therefore, it's the same world for them as it is for us.

    Despondent Lullaby

    A despondent lullaby interrupts my fares.
    A hienous act has enthralled the city.
    Such a fiendish scene has razed their dreams.
    Must one be oblivious to such display?
    Must one not shriek for those who grief?
    For such burden is weary on the soul
    and one shall not endure such calamities forever.
    With their deaths the conumdrum of our existence is exposed for its frailties.
    Now, must I be content with our current state of affairs?
    Must I not denounce such henious crimes?
    For my soul has endured a myriad of trials and tribulations.
    Such is one's fate, thus I must tempt the wretched ghouls to reveal themselves from the veil of darkness.
    Such is one's fate, for the righteous must not kneel to the connoiseur of evil.

    In the hall among many,
    She stood out. Why?
    Because it was rare,
    Almost nonexistent to see
    A woman blend in with men.
    The same men,
    Who were against women
    Asking for their rights because,
    In their heads,
    They already have those.
    She battled with words:
    'You, privileged gender,
    May think I have all my rights but yet,
    You prove that my kind does not.'
    How? You try to silence us
    With your roars.
    You try to hush our screams
    And turn them into whispers,
    Many even succeed.
    But if we do not have the right to speak
    Then how can you say,
    We have all the rights that we need?
    Among this stands the man,
    I call my predator, who had all the
    Confidence in this world that he
    would touch me and I would stay silent.
    And I did stay silent for a long time.
    Why? Because I was born in a society
    Where sexual awareness
    Was considered taboo.
    Where a million more girls
    Had to stay silent because of one fear,
    Who would believe when even
    The name is frowned upon.

    Her spirit was set
    Free and she did it
    All by herself,
    Only taking help
    From another women to
    Help her stand up as well.
    No longer will society
    cause inferiority to
    The birth of females.
    No longer females
    Will stay silent when
    It is their dignity in question.
    No longer will we let them,
    Walk all over us.

    First Time

    First sight of yours on the very first day
    Doubtful in head, if the fascination will stay
    Hall jammed with the scholars blend
    Yet eyes stuck on you, like an ornament gemmed


    Seated in classroom with anxious mind envisioning luck
    Swiftly entered the enchanting lad, afresh I was wonderstruck
    First time heard your name, like petals unfurled
    Seeing you from close, my heart stood and swirled


    First was the bond of friendship with you
    As beautiful as the colors cyan, magenta out of the blue
    Time immemorial, studying, laughing - which we spent
    The fear of losing you like the fragrance of scent


    First love of mine which I strongly felt
    Your smile, eyes -made provisional girl's heart melt
    First hug of mine so precious, For you it was Trivial
    Leaving behind the love in me that was not equal


    First time I was shattered and heart again colored blue
    Beliefs are false and love colorless, now my heart knew
    Intense loneliness and damaged soul torn apart
    First time, the will overpowered and helped life to restart

    Never give up in whatever you do. Always fight for what you believe is right. No matter how many times you fall, stand up again and again and one day you will notice that your hardwork has paid you good results.

    When a child is learing how to stand and walk, he falls down 100 times, but he never thinks that he can't do it. He stands up once again and tries, untill he learns to walk by himself. So awaken the child inside you, try again and again, untill you succeed in whatever you are doing.

    Long are the days
    Long are the nights
    Somber thoughts
    And hopeless sights

    All colors are fading
    Life's a void of misleading
    When your fantasy is demeaning
    Lost purpose of succeeding

    Wake up and stand
    Let me lend you my hand
    Trust the voice in and understand
    You are the god in command

    Never give up

    Does losing prove that you are weak?
    Isn't losing difficult for all of you?
    A challenge where, after ending up on your hands & knees,
    You must see if you can stand up again?
    If you stay on your hands and knees, that proves that you are weak.

    How to forget after forgiving ?
    How to love after not being loved back ?
    How to smile after a night full of tears ?
    How to stand up after a fall ?
    How to trust after being cheated ?
    How to hug you after being pushed once ?
    How to accept after being rejected ?

    Just close your eyes, take a deep breathe and focus on what you have rather than what you don't have.
    That's it. You got the answer.☺️

    Keep smiling and spreading positivity.

    To all the believers

    The world wears masks and looks on in horror
    The largest transfer of wealth and power
    Our rights weren't many, now we have none
    Our wealths were tiny, now we all but done
    The rich just got richer, the poor inherited the earth
    Homeless and roaming, now they know their votes worth
    The Governments turned fascists and laughed at all the woke
    The media sold it's soul, propagation was all they spoke
    Stupidity reached record levels as people blamed the year
    They still believe in their politicians, even as they destroy all you hold dear
    You chose your leaders and still stand by them blindly
    The year is 2020, irony for none can see
    Please control our lives, please take all our rights
    Steal our nation's wealth and arrest all who dare to fight
    We will still support you'll, brainless is our state
    You can do no wrong, you don't promote hate
    Your just our global leaders who care ever so deeply
    Give our money to the rich, they need it more badly
    We can starve and die, we are just another vote
    We can live of empty promises, our believes our worth more
    We don't want intelligent leaders or people who really care
    The fascists will save us, so what if we are left bare
    My grandchildren will wonder how we destroyed their world
    But I will keep supporting, my leaders who let it all burn
    I could ask you to choose better, but choice is just an illusion
    They've made up your mind for you, atleast stop pretending it's your own vision
    If you still support the powers to be and find your wealth eroding
    You got exactly what you deserve, it was not an act of God your witnessing
    You sold your sheep to the wolf and then wonder why you starve
    They promised you'll safety and you gave up all you are
    We rarely get what we deserve but this time that's not the case
    They promised you a lap, so you gladly lost the race
    You wanted an enemy so they pointed at your neighbours
    You wanted hope but settled for their fears
    Yet you still believe, your leaders will save you
    Destroyer of worlds, it's not Thanos, it's you......

    No body here has the right to
    Tease you
    For anything you did
    For anything you wear
    For anything that unfortunately
    Happened to you

    Nobody accept your family has the right to
    Pin point you at Everything
    Because they are not the one
    Paying for your shitt

    Never ever yearn for anyone's attention
    Especially those fucking people
    Of this society
    Give respect to those
    Who give it to you


    Start Respecting yourself
    Start believing in yourself
    Start loving yourself
    And start living for yourself
    The way you want to live
    Without thinking
    What other's are gonna say


    Coz they will talk
    Whatsoever it is
    That's there daily job or habit may be ��

    So forget " Kya kahenge log "
