Peace – Do we deserve it!

Human. 

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. 

Human.

No matter how petty it is.

It is capable of achieving great things.

Them or us – Why not both?

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!

Are we really free?

29,1

                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?

                30.1 copy

                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!

Suicide – Does it really help?

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.

“…and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?”
― Vincent Van Gogh

  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.

A scar of war.

Lost in the world of the hate, a lone lady tried to survive.

Every day she’d toil so hard, with a fear of being shot at alive anytime.

Running around, doing her chores, she never bothered about anyone,

Except for her sick and bed-ridden love, trying to recover.

He may have been the best of his regime, but he lost his future forever,

That’s what the world thought of that war veteran.

Fighting in his fifth battle, colder became his aggression;

Becoming more wise, he started to become more human.

A novice, a friend, entered his the field with passion,

Without realising he was entering into a trap,

He would have lost his life if it weren’t for his old chap.

Our man almost lost his life trying to protect a life of his comrade.

His friend, tried everything to make his life better,

But alas, the path of violence always ends up being bitter.

They understood the values, they once thought, that never made sense.

The idea of kindness and spreading happiness,

Oh the benefits of non-violence!

Although our veteran was paralyzed, he believed life goes on when there’s hope.

“Oh darling, why didn’t you choose a life, that had a better scope?”

The wife cried when she heard he’d never be able to walk again,

“Love, dying for protecting people I love is an honour;

But sometimes, it requires the ability to bear forever, a scar.

But, why I did choose this path, I shall never regret.

But if I don’t spread the idea of peace, that feeling would be worse than death.”

The concept of violence and hatred has destroyed lives of millions over the years.  It’s time we wake up and be the human we actually are.

It’s time to #StandUpForHumanity. Share your views and thoughts on this and spread happiness wherever you see fit, because we already have many haters. Love is all we need now and forever.

I’ll be back with yet another amazing post, until then, just #LIVEyOURLIFE.

Life without ART!

“PAINTING IS JUST ANOTHER WAY OF KEEPING A DIARY!”
~PABLO PICCASSO

image

Answer this:

How would it be if there would not be any laughter? How would it feel if no one had a sense of humour?
Any thought on that?? Good, Bad or worst??

If your answer is any way in positive, I feel sorry for you…
Anyhow, I want to ask you another question…

What if there was no art in it??

Yes, ART… It could be in any form dance, music, literature, painting, etc..

I asked few people the same question!

I’m combining the answers altogether:

“Art is about self-expression and creativity. Creativity gave birth to everything currently… And if there was no art, there would have been a great void in the world; it would have made the world colourless.  For example, “Wheel” it may look like a small circled thing, but the invention of it gave birth to transportation; it helped textile industry, electricity and many things.
No art means thinking inside the box, in short keeping the human brain locked up in a prison. That way, there would be no creativity. When there’s no creativity, there would be no innovation that would stop the progress in any field!
Human being has a bundle of wants; art plays a vital role in satisfying it! We require music, books etc., to keep us entertained! Sometimes they also help us get out of depression; it is a friend that stays with us no matter what.
Human beings are given an upper hand for a simple reason, they are creative, and a human himself is an art! A beautiful creation! If we take out the creativity, what would be the difference between humans and the other animals?
In Simpler words, Life Without Art is similar to life without breath.”

The best part was, no one gave similar answer. Everyone had something different to answer. It is not surprising that no two people gave similar answer to even what art is…

You can compare different dictionaries, not many words would be given similar definition.
So, that shows how important art is! We have lived in this world for millenniums… The reason why we have come this far is only because of art…

You might be wondering, ‘how can everyone answer for the support of creativity?’

Well, I asked people of different age groups! Out of all the people who answered the question, only one person had something against creativity. That person said, “Everything has a positive and a negative effect. Creativity is just expanding our thinking capacity. Good creativity led to the discovery of pen whereas bad creativity led to the discovery of weapons. It’s just how one uses the power. So, in one way the absence of creativity might lead to no peace, no harmony, whereas it might end up the production of things which are harmful to us.”

To that I want to answer one thing, if weapons weren’t discovered there would have not been any human kind alive, the early men used the weapons for protection from dangerous creatures. Now, we might not require any weapons, but that guy said it himself, it all depends on how you use it.
A friend of mine asked me, “Hey, you scored amazing marks, why aren’t you trying in any top 10 colleges?”

C’mon, marks won’t keep you happy. Yes, my mark is good, I could have gotten in few of those top colleges, but why should I select them? Where ever I end up going, all I would do is dig into my creativity.

“ART IS THE MOST INTENSE FORM OF INDIVIDUALISM THAT THE WORLD HAS KNOWN.”
~OSCAR WILDE

We have ended up with a generation in which, 50% of the population doesn’t even know they are creative, 25% are aware of their creativity but are following the society and who end up calling the successful people “lucky”, 15% want to follow their passion but they don’t just because of what the society would think, the remaining 10% of the population are the one who chase their passion and encourage their as well as everyone’s creativity.
Ever heard of this?

“YOU ARE THE CREATOR OF YOUR OWN DESTINY”
~Swami Vivekananda

When something is created, the person who makes it doesn’t start with the direct idea of making it, he feels something has to be made for this reason, for example, the creator of umbrella wanted to make something to save him from getting wet or to escape the extreme heat, that’s when his creativity kicked in!

“THE AIM OF ART IS TO REPRESENT NOT THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE OF THINGS, BUT THEIR INWARD SIGNIFICANE.”
~ ARISTOTLE

Art acts the same way salt acts to food, but the only difference is, the more the art, the happier may the life be! Art is just like meditating, it brings out the feelings of the inner soul, which is very hard to describe. That’s the reason why it is difficult for people to describe, poems, songs, paintings etc., in words, it reflects the inner language!

If people would make their passion to their profession, the world might be a better place or the least they could do is encourage others, instead of criticizing it! The path may be difficult, harsh and may seem impossible to reach, but the journey, the life is worth the pain!
I almost forgot one of the best sayings on art:

“EARTH WITHOUT ART IS JUST ‘EH’!”
~Unknown.

Few days back, I met one of my cousins after a gap of around 10 years, almost at the end of the conversation, he asked me, “You don’t talk much?” I simply answered, “Ha-ha! Being a poet, I let my poems do the talking!”
In my words, everyone is a born as a poem and goes on becoming a poet when he starts to live the life!

“IF ART IS TO NOURISH THE ROOTS OF OUR CULTURE SOCIETY MUST SET THE ARTIST FREE TO FOLLOW HIS VISION WHERE-EVER IT TAKES HIM.”
~ JOHN F. KENNEDY

So, art and creativity do play a major role in this world.. But it also matters how you one uses it!
I thank everyone who gave in their opinion… Do tell, what your opinion is.. I’ll be back with another amazing post.. Until then, just LIVE yOUR LIFE!
