My heart keeps getting brimmed these days and my pages emptier. Words choose to leave me . I'm 16 winters old out of which 10 are the one overpowered by silence.
When someone asks me why don't you write like you used to once , I struggle to tell them , How my metaphors died of breathlessness and how I write from their ashes now. How my mouth tastes of bitter pills, my lover fed me in the name of love. How my soul is an ashtray in which I emptied 99 cigars. Each after a panic attack I survived. And how I know I won't be able to survive the hundredth one.
My anxiety is the lost child of a mother, who struggles to find her way back home. So I shelter her inside my body , a body with no doors and windows. She smirks at me and I smirk at her back . When , 99 nights later she realises that I am her new home.
Plath rests in one corner of my heart and Bukowski refuses to vacant my bones , and I lie down here , in my bed , with my father - sized grief sleeping beside me. wondering , for how long can someone create art out of their sadness ? How do people sugarcoat misery and drape it with metaphors ? So now , when kohl paints patterns on my cheeks , I no longer call it art .
and I keep telling myself that It's okay It's okay It'll be okay Someday , maybe ? Not realising , my okay is as futile as your I love you's. My okay is as hollow as your promises. My okay is as violent as my fathers' love for my mother. That ' to be okay' is a lie and we use it because we are afraid of writing the truth.
/ written from the POV of a cow who is about to deliver a baby /
Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do—to nourish their young—but calves on dairy farms are taken away from their mothers when they are just one day old or so. They are fed milk replacers (including cattle blood) so that their mothers’ milk can be sold.
Male cows are sent to slaughter houses and female cows are sent to milk industries and separated from mother.
Female cows are kept in merciful conditions for life and are inseminated again and again artificially.
Oxytocin injections are given as milk enhancers. This all decreases the life expectancy of cows
