People say you can fight, With depression, anxiety, With fear of something, With illness, With illness that's either, Mental or physical.
I say okay! I agree to what they say, But tell me what if, There are things, That can't be termed as illness, And we still have to fight it.
Heartbreaks are natural, That's what they say, But if they're so natural, Then we should also, Naturally know how to deal with it, Do we?
Losing friends or losing on them, Is a part of growing up, But is it really that easy, To deal with that kind of void, Your close friends leave you with, And getting over it is the only choice left.
Not always do we get along, With our parents, Family, So what do we do then, In a space that we call home, Which doesn't even give you the comfort, That you seek in a space known as Home.
How to fight a mess like this, Which causes chaos in your head, A web that you're so stuck with, And all of this can also not fit, Into a specific term, That we could term as Illness.
Not all things are to be fought out, Not everything has to be dealt with, Neither do we have to just get over it, Nor do we have to avoid it, Not everything is meant to be solved, And neither do we have to just be okay regardless any situation.
Some things are better left unsaid, Some things are better left unspoken, The same way it's better to leave, Some things the way they're, And IT'S OKAY TO BE UPSET about it, Because the more you express whatever is inside, The more lighter your heart feels, And that is exactly what matters the most.
A bright shiny day, With some gloomy flowers, And fresh greenery, People exercising, Birds singing around, And a start of a new day, With some rushing to work.
Sipping coffee at a corner cafe, Enjoying untimely rains, In the middle of the street, Catching up with friends, Taking a tour of the city, Playing music at a very high volume, And singing along wrong lyrics.
Making random movie plans, Holding a tub of popcorn, Post movie fights over, Who cried first, During an emotional scene, And then teasing them, For the rest of their lives.
Drooling over ice-creams, At midnight with your group, Making fun of random individuals, Over the street, To judging people for random stuff, All of this sound like a dream now.
All of this was, What we once called Normal, And maybe, When time will heal the scars, Of this phase for each individual, We will once again live this normal, That we all now dream of.
With No masks, To hide our smiles, With no fear of, Giving a warm hug, To our closed ones, And no more virtual catching up.
This world would be functional yet again, A better world will be built, Out of a new normal, New lessons will be taught and learned, And little things will be valued, In this dreamy normal because, This too shall pass.
It's almost midnight, And I am wide awake, Overthinking yet again, About things, That I should not, Because of the hurt, That's hurting me.
I almost think, How to not overthink, But for a control freak, Not being able to, Control the thoughts, Running at a lick, Is a losing game.
Maybe tomorrow, Maybe coming week, Maybe next month, Or perhaps this new year, Will be better enough, To achieve what I couldn't, For I'm done contemplating.
Hope and hardwork, Is what I swear on, Positivity and optimism, Is what I have, And smiling is all, I am left with, To finally realise, Not Yet!
I try to remain strong, Giving up won't be my choice, Focusing on strengths, And working on my weaknesses, Did help me get through, But hitting Adulting gave my life, A whole new set of responsibilities.
Now these responsibilities, And my desire to fulfill it, Is what keeps me going, For I know if I don't, It will tear me apart, In a guilt of not being responsible enough, For those who were always enough for me.
When all of this takes over me, My tiny little heart, Asks me if I could spare some help, Of a heart that could contribute a little support, Not by being tangible, But more on a sentimental level, And now it's almost dawn and I am still wide awake.
This year's been a mess! Nobody ever thought that this year could bring such a drastic graph to our life. This year was more like a coin. Either positive or negative but without any moderation. So if we wanna conclude what exactly did 2020 teach us then here it is : This year taught us LIFE. Life won't be just about Routine, Comfort Zones, Happiness, Love, Dreams, Achievements and Family. It will also be able Failures, coming Out of our Comfort Zones, Hate, and most importantly it taught us CHANGE is the only constant in this world. Every single human in this world fought a tough battle every single day this year. Everyone understood how difficult it is just to survive a day. Those who failed, went away. After all "Only the Fittest can Survive". And this new year everyone of us who survived should just thank god that we're alive and are able to turn a leaf over and welcome a NEW Year. No new year was as special as this one for everyone of us in this world. Let's welcome it without high expectations but a little HOPE. Hope, to just bring some positivity! I know being alive means fighting battles everyday no matter whether they're big or small, but atleast we get to fight and learn and Live with our loved ones. And that's all that matters. LIVING LIFE not just Surviving!
