Why are we so afraid to die?
While, truly, the whole concept of reality is a lie.
It’d be a simple task to run away,
And it seriously takes huge courage to stay.
Yes, sometimes, life may seem to be dead,
And we fail to realise there’s still an unconquered path ahead.
Sometimes, failure breaks our heart into pieces,
But one who sits idly and mourns over it is the one who actually losses.
Crawl. Walk. Run. Fly. Fall.
Make mistakes, and stand tall.
People may stalk, talk and may also laugh,
Just let them be!
Because, there’s more to you than just being a gossip queen.
That haven’t seen the hell we were raised in,
They won’t realise the pain that we have survived in.
A dead life may seem a better option than hell most of the time,
But well, why not love and serve and get the heaven we truly deserve.
Death ain’t a thing to be scared of,
Like life, it’s a step into a new era,
Not yet discovered and not yet seen.
Maybe that’s why we find death terrifying.
The time we get in between life and death is minimal and equal to most of them,
So, why not do something great and remain a legend,
Instead of being a mystery in the unsearched and unrecorded history.
Death is inevitable, so don’t frighten,
Just live your life and spread peace, because in reality life is beyond what we can imagine.
“I’ll be there for you till the end.” A promise that brought him back to life.
Words, simple they seem, but dangerous they are;
It can break a man’s heart, but can also take him far.
Life haunted him everyday,
Death wanted him in every way.
Choice, remained a myth to him,
And his entire life started to dim.
Never had he thought, he would end up like this,
Broken and soulless, like death giving him a kiss.
In the morning, with every sip of coffee
He would feel, people around him were zombies.
Before hitting the bed, every night,
To live or to die, he had to decide.
He wasn’t always like this,
It all started with small things.
Fights, ignorance and rejections,
Leading to bigger ones like death and demotions.
He thought, he had lost it all,
No ear was open for all this to be heard.
He decided to give up, but then he turned back
And was it a coincidence that he did?
No, life has a plan and there was one for him too,
He saw her and he saw his life calling him too,
And the following words were enough to make his heart melt,
“I’ll be there for you till the end.”
Life may be difficult, but don’t make it short. You’ll face challenges you are not ready for, but that doesn’t make you weak. It makes you stronger.
Will be back with another amazing post, until then, LIVE yOUR LIFE and LIFT others HIGHER.
A petty little creature it is.
Prays only when it falls,
Never working to find out the cause.
Laughs and dances all night long.
Starts bashing and boasting as soon as it’s dawn.
Peace it needs,
But does it deserve, is the question.
Hell and tortures we brought unto ourselves,
So, stop demanding like we are a princess.
We brag of human rights and equality,
But there are some still dying of hunger and are still thirsty,
And all we do is say, “Oh, what a pity!”
A man expresses his feelings, by crying,
Gets bashed, for being a sissy.
Oh, but look at that tomboy, whom we end up complimenting.
She expresses her opinion but is ignored totally.
He gives the same opinion and is rewarded, well, that’s funny,
Because, this is what we call equality.
Humanity, someone says it exists,
But, wasn’t he the one who was back-bitching about one of his “ex-es”!
A child gets bullied, ain’t that fault of the bully’s parent?
“Oh no, why would we teach our kids to bully!”
Er, you could teach them not to do that!
Or presumably help them sort their mental health out!
We criticize the victims of rape and harrasments being weak,
But, never have we understood the necessity to teach.
Teach your child, it’s not okay to hurt others, mentally and physically.
Teach them the need of responsibility.
Only then, we will be free.
Only then, we will truly deserve peace.
Also, Teach the one you know, those drugs would end up being costly.
If they don’t listen, let them go, you don’t need that kind of negativity.
No matter how petty it is.
It is capable of achieving great things.

Poverty, corruption, and terrorism
Surrounding us, while we live in a slum.
Rules, laws, and regulations
Guarding us, while the powerful have fun.
Dreams are crushed,
Mascaras are smudged,
All we hear is sorry,
And everyone moves on.
Hunger, diseases and deaths,
Pity, only a human faces this, else some action is taken.
All we see, scams and schemes,
Forever, making us run.
One plus one is two,
Unity is strength, we understood all that in grade two,
You still don’t get this,
What is wrong with you?
Gave you all the resources,
Trusted you with all our scars
Finally someone to heal them,
Well, the joke’s on us, since all we got was loss.
You promised us things,
You promised us hope,
Why do you do this?
Why do you fake things like this?
Stop blaming others
And give us what we need.
We didn’t deserve the pain you gave
And certainly didn’t need the plans you made.
Happiness and peace is what we need now,
Please stop running,
Life is a marathon.
Why keep the frown!
Killing, hating, stealing, and raping,
We are humans, so please stop this
Desperation and expectations
Disappointing they may be, but worth the wait they are.
All we dream is of a better world,
Where all have basic needs
All are at peace
And we smile knowing life is beyond everything what we think.
All this is possible only when we come together,
Please remember, we have the power.
To change and make this world better
Forever and ever!
With many problems happening around the world, it actually pains my heart to know only few dare or even care to speak about it.
Stop blaming everyone, and start doing something yourself about it first. People may follow you later on.
Truly, life is beyond what we think. So please, stop spreading hate and start loving.
Let me know what you think of it. I’ll be back with another amazing post, until then #LIVEyOURLIFE!
Are we really free?
Modern times; Modern thought, yet living in hypocrisy.
Democracy prevails; Democracy is the key, yet restrictions still lives.
He does this; She does that, still a concern for the society that’s lazy.
Oh what a pity, we don’t follow the order, because that’s the dream, it seems.
Born a boy, be an engineer or auditor, it’s fixed.
Or join the family business, you shouldn’t argue with this.
Born a girl; Love, you are lucky to be born!
So, go ahead and study medicine or do arts, that would be enough,
Argue with this, and you’d be married off.
*Society does a witty laugh*
“Oh, I have an idea!” said an over-excited teen,
“Follow the system or you’ll break your spleen!”
“I’d love to live here; I’d love to study here; I’d love to work here!”
“You’re required to a pay a small processing fees my dear.”
“Oh, such a gifted voice you have, it’s sad you are doing a job” said every other aunty
‘Weren’t you the one to advice me that I won’t succeed and forced my parents for a job’ thought the young lady.
“Come home by 9.” Said a concerned mom to her daughter,
“But, why does he get to stay out the whole night.” She pointed her finger towards her brother!
‘Apparently, men are victims of rape’ society believes!
“Raise them to respect women!”
“Oh you are so weak, a guy doesn’t cry. Don’t be such a sissy.”
‘I’m a human, and we do end up being emotional at some point of time.
But, why it is okay to be a tomboy but to be a sissy is not okay!’
“He loves him. She loves her. He loves her. She loves him.”
Wish love was this simple. But some believe it is unnatural.
There’s a ban on spreading love, what’s tomorrow, it’s sophistical.
One can’t have a say on what one should eat,
Wait, was it mentioned that it’s a democratic nation we live in?
Why throw the garbage in dust bin?
Doing everything illogical and not calling it a sin,
Well that’s something.
Let’s see how the story ends;
“Hey, I have an opinion!” shouted a common man.
“Your voice will die, just like the others did.” Whispered thousands of men!
Oh, we are definitely free!
Wars are fought; hatred is spread. Why is it necessary?
Live in peace and come together, isn’t that what humanity is supposed to be?
This may not be a situation everywhere, but it is a major concern. Please don’t turn a blind eye towards these concerns. Development takes place by coming together, not by killing each other!
Do let me know what you think of this. You are welcome to share it! Will be back with another post. Until then just LIVEyOURLIFE!
Screaming with some pain,
Singing my sorrow song,
I was going along,
Because, everyone drove me insane.
Never had I thought, my life would be such a mess,
With every turn, I get filled up with stress.
Why oh why, don’t we have a button to alert any distress!
It’s about time that I had confessed.
They say, “A friend in need is a friend indeed”.
So, I want you to listen, just once I plead.
You always have something to say,
But to hear me out, not even an heed you’d pay.
I hit rock-bottom years ago, when people started to ignore me,
I tried to fit in, because, people not doing that were tagged silly.
Every time I felt the urge to be funny,
They would look back at me, I swear, it was always scary.
Develop sense of humour, you said.
But, to insult someone’s dignity, and lose my respect,
These things are actually worse than death.
I’d prefer staying in hell, if humans don’t learn.
I tried to be perfect by not talking out about my depression,
But, by the time I understood the need to heal,
It had almost won.
Those tearless cries,
Those noiseless screams,
Dull was the feeling portrayed by every colour
And I felt the need to kill myself every other hour.
My dreams, my passion, were of no importance, I could see,
But to watch them being burned down alive, tore my soul
No one to talk to, no one to be with, being an introvert,
It was supposed to be my heaven.
But, this was a misery that I wish no one should face.
No other option felt better than to give up,
But just the day before I planned to leave this place,
Hope was given to me by the person I expected the least
She did look like a cold-hearted person, but her heart melted when she found her one,
‘Patience’ is a virtue that will give you a huge reward, I realized that day.
And hope is something, you should never abandon on the way.
Thus, my journey to a great life began.
With the love of my life who saved a soul from doing a horrid mistake,
Suicide is the worst option,
To get out of depression.
And to hang oneself or to tease others,
Is not considered as fun!
Suicide, today has become a rising issue. It may seem the easiest option to end all troubles, but please before you do consider that, think about your family, friends or colleagues. They may hate you for taking such a decision. If you don’t have anyone to talk to, you can contact the helpline services that are available. If you are not comfortable with that, you can very well contact us. We will be very happy to be your friend and help you out in dealing in a crisis.
To others, Mental health is a major health concern that has to be given equal or more importance to, since kids learn from adults. We as a society must make sure, everyone is happy and everyone is in peace both physically and mentally. So, if you can’t help a person in such stages, at least don’t tease them or torture them.
Please, spread the message. There is always hope. There is always love. Spread Love, Spread Hope and Spread Life.

Do let us know your views on mental illness, stress management and depression.
We will be back with another post. So stick around and #LIVEyOURLIFE.
Dead leaves on the ground, chilly and breezy wind felt my face as I walked across some of my mates.
The whole group was shouting and laughing, being a human, curiosity filled a part of my brain.
A seemingly weak kid was being ridiculed on and picked upon; he unwillingly had a face, with an awkward smile on.
None could see that pain, that kid was going through just to join in on the fun.
Why would someone do that? I started to ponder.
But, everyone would call me a stupid for searching that answer.
All started to make sense as I observed the scene,
All that kid wanted was to be a part of a team.
Though for many, funny it may seem,
This is a reality, everyone chooses to overlook
Your manliness is judged, if you can’t handle, weak in their eyes you look.
As the group left, the kid was all left alone,
He tried to keep himself busy, but couldn’t concentrate, reasons still unknown.
He looked here and there, yet unable to pass the time,
He kept a face that was similar to a dead guy.
Nobody from that group could recognize the damage they caused and all they would do is deny.
I waited to figure out why he had gone through with that pain without any complain.
And I could see, all he wanted was to be accepted as a social person,
Being an introvert, he knew not how to act in front of people.
Being an artist, he knew not how to converse on useless topics.
Being a novice, all he knew was society considered someone to be of value, when somebody gives you respect or when you are a part of a so called well-reputed group.
The torture he had to go through to lock up his soul,
The silent screams he had to make, when he had to forgo his talents,
The strength he had to gather to lose his self-respect.
All that hurting just to cope up with some reckless bullying.
When will this society stand up against this terrorizing activity!
All they do is give it respect and make it grow.
I say, it is time we stand up and rise against this frightening activity which is still hidden inside many.
And give those bullies what they truly deserve.
Choose your company wisely.
Supporting a bully is worse than being one.
Laughing on that kid, is the worst thing one can do,
All he needs a little help to achieve his dreams.
Humanity means standing up for someone, not ridiculing them for fun.
Bullying is the use of force, threat or coercion to abuse, intimidate or aggressively dominate others or in simple terms; it is just use superior strength or influence to intimidate (someone), typically to force them to do something. The behavior is often repeated and habitual. One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social or physical power, which distinguishes bullying from conflict.
There are many types of bullying. If you are a person with authority, please be aware of these.
Individual bullying tactics can be perpetrated by a single person against a target or targets.
This is any bullying that hurts someone’s body or damages their possessions. Stealing, shoving, hitting, fighting, and destroying property all are types of physical bullying.
This is any bullying that is conducted by speaking. Calling names, spreading rumors, threatening somebody, and making fun of others are all forms of verbal bullying. Verbal bullying is one of the most common types of bullying. In verbal bullying the main weapon the bully uses is their voice.
This is any bullying that is done with the intent to hurt somebody’s reputation or social standing which can also link in with the techniques included in physical and verbal bullying. Relational Bullying is a form of bullying common amongst youth. Unlike physical bullying which is obvious, relational bullying is not overt and can continue for a long time without being noticed.
Cyber bullying is the use of technology to harass, threaten, embarrass, or target another person. When an adult is involved, it may meet the definition of cyber-harassment or cyberstalking, a crime that can have legal consequences and involve jail time. This includes email, instant messaging, social networking sites (such as Facebook), text messages, and cell phones.
Collective bullying tactics are employed by more than one individual against a target or targets.
Mobbing refers to the bullying of an individual by a group, in any context, such as a family, peer group, school, workplace, neighborhood, community, or online. When it occurs as emotional abuse in the workplace, such as “ganging up” by co-workers, subordinates or superiors, to force someone out of the workplace through rumor, innuendo, intimidation, humiliation, discrediting, and isolation.
Mona O’Moore of the Anti-Bullying Centre at Trinity College in Dublin, has written, “There is a growing body of research which indicates that individuals, whether child or adult, who are persistently subjected to abusive behavior are at risk of stress related illness which can sometimes lead to suicide”. Those who have been the targets of bullying can suffer from long term emotional and behavioral problems. Bullying can cause loneliness, depression, anxiety, lead to low self-esteem and increased susceptibility to illness. Bullying has also been shown to cause maladjustment in young children, and targets of bullying who were also bullies themselves exhibit even greater social difficulties.
“They will hate you if you are beautiful. They will hate you if you are successful. They will hate you if you are right. They will hate you if you are popular. They will hate you when you get attention. They will hate you when people in their life like you. They will hate you if you worship a different version of their God. They will hate you if you are spiritual. They will hate you if you have courage. They will hate you if you have an opinion. They will hate you when people support you. They will hate you when they see you happy. Heck, they will hate you while they post prayers and religious quotes on Pinterest and Facebook. They just hate. However, remember this: They hate you because you represent something they feel they don’t have. It really isn’t about you. It is about the hatred they have for themselves. So smile today because there is something you are doing right that has a lot of people thinking about you.”
― Shannon L. Alder

CBSC Board in India has given highest importance against Bullying compared to any other institutions in India.
I would love to do more research on this, but the data I could acquire is just limited. You can do your bit by standing up against it and helping that kid or person.
