It’s the small moments that we’ll always remember
The first hello, the goodbyes and the I hope I’ll see you again
The sweetness that lingers and the pain that leaves us in shreds
And it’s amazing how time heals everything
But emotions can run you over at any moment
In an instance, in an accidental sight
A song from the past, or the glimpse of a photograph
Our histories remain untouched and unchanged
And how sad we are deep inside
When on the outside we appear to smile
Because something so right somewhere went horrible wrong
The adorable ones became the untouchables
And these thoughts come back to you on a cold lonely winter’s day
It’s amazing how we lived through each of this moments
And we let it slide and slip away
Couldn’t we have mended it someway?
Couldn’t our love have lasted for years?
Some couples in the past, how out-of-place they seemed
And with six years between them, entwined they live
It could have been us, but you decided otherwise
Love goes two-way, it won’t work for just one of us
And today I feel sad
Because even now I project us
It’s just the matter of what we want in life
In each other’s lives where happiness is what it’s all about
Perhaps I dream of you in colours but you never see me
And those moments of wonder, to you was just a whisker
Maybe I was to you just one of them
And to me you were once the world
Every time you say heyo, I feel sad
Because the love reignites, but there’s no fuel for fire
How miserable your existence has made me
And how I wish this heart would grow, and
Would learn to forget the moments that once meant more
I always feared this moment: the moment I’d turn myself into someone else. But I know where I came from and that I should keep both my feet on the ground. I was born to serve and serve I will; to make this world a more liveable.
As I just watched the movie Parched, I felt an obligation to bring the much-needed change that society needs. We all know of the social evils that society accepts. People who have made rules loathe change but change is important. Everything that is new might sound strange, might not ring bells or go easy on the ear, but with time we need to know of the greater evils accepted by our society. To stand alone in a crowd with your moral obligations will be frightening and you might be shredded into pieces for standing up, but you should do the right thing and challenge societal norms if they are primitive and unreasonable. Nepalese might have all the wealth in the world, but they’re not civil yet. As Aristotle puts it, ‘There’s no point in educating the mind without educating the heart.’
Let us all be good human being and live outside of our jobs for a while. A busy schedule that makes you work like a machine will make you forget your responsibilities of being a human being. We learned to live in a community millenniums ago but we’ve forgotten to live. We live in an age where everybody is so busy trying to make a living that they forget to live their lives. What good is the money you earn if your hard work only brings a smile on you face? If you really want to be happy, know that happiness grows when it’s shared. Be the reason for a smile on somebody’s face and do this every day. Let someone know that there are good people in this world who have arms wide open and filled with love for strangers whom they did not know even exist. Provide someone with some assistance and get them out of a pickle. Make their burden yours. There’s no point in sleeping over a pile of money. There’s no point in getting drunk every Friday night for pleasure. There’s no need to be disciplined by society and turn you into a slave in this corporate wold. Live free with an open mind and clean heart. Live to serve humanity. Live to love.
And I really hope that someday someone we will get rid of all our miseries. I know life is tough with pharmaceutical companies, arms dealers , and unethical bankers and businessmen, but there are some of us who are ethical too. It’s okay to be frustrated knowing the fact that we’ve been let down by the very people who care about us, but it’s not their fault that they aren’t enlightened. It is out fault if we know that change is needed but we do not act on it. It is up to us to show the world that it can be all rainbows and butterflies if we wish for it. Spread the love, bring the change. Be ethical and prosper in what is rightfully yours.
The way we can change the world is by empathy. Learn the reason for our existence. We live on a planet that we commonly share. The only way to live is in harmony. Throw away your vanity. Throw away your clothes and go skinny-dipping in the river. Know that there is so much the world has to offer. Live the life you’ve always dreamed of. Dream big, dream right, dream for a prosperous tomorrow.
We all have a choice to become capitalists or to enlighten ourselves. We all have a chance to follow education or to follow Pink Floyd. We can chose to be free or become corporate slaves. There’s comfort in one, rebellion in the other.
It isn’t my fault that I am born different. We’ve been brought up in a world with competition where those who do not compete can never stand up. I hate competition. I always avoid it. I hate having to prove myself to someone and the embarrassment of losing. If I win, the system wins. I do not need to prove anyone that I’m worthy. I only need to prove myself that I’m right about what I’m doing. We’re born in a wretched planet where only profit matters. If the world was governed by love, then we would find happiness. Money, it’s a gas.
For those who do not yet know the purpose of life, “We are born so that we can leave this world a better place”. I’m playing my part and if it was just me, I think I’ve made this world better. I’ve done smalls bits to save lives of animals, plants and insects. I’ve done small bits to bring smile on peoples faces. I’ve tried to improve the standard of life of strangers. I’ve educated people and given them advices. Understand happiness. You cannot share a smile with a mirror. It takes two. Lets start with me and you. 🙂
I hate how mishandled our planet is. We’ve lost our way with nature. We’re born in a concrete jungle with minds of savages. Until we don’t realise that the whole is greater than the sum, we will keep searching for happiness in the wrong places. Love is divine. Hope can be shredded, fate disoriented, bonds can be broken, but it cannot be stolen. It is was to destroy than to mend, but the purpose of life is to spread the love. There is no better feeling than love. The devils advocate governs the world and we must unite to render them useless. Money cannot buy happiness, but it can buy you grief. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
I’m losing this fight because I’m all alone. I know there are more people like me in the shadows, waiting for the right opportunity but it will not come to your doorsteps. If following your dreams was easy, everyone one would be thrilled. It’s the gain after pain that really counts. Come on people, we need to learn to give society a send off and start our own religion. We believe in humanity, don’t we?
Join hands to make this world a better place than it ever was.
