Mellow

Daily post-ShallowWith her thoughts deep

And the water shallow

She sat there on the beach

Watched the sky turn yellow

The future scares her

And the past still hurts

She’s trying to find answers

In the pleats of her skirt.

Debates

These days i catch myself,caught up between self-acceptance and becoming better.I don’t know how to create a balance here.

I strongly feel that we need personal growth all the time.How can we just keep living without trying to move forward?But the problem here is the need for validation.We don’t stop at ourselves,we need others to accept us,be in awe of us.Now that’s a danger level because we have long passed the stop sign.

The other thing is self acceptance.Love for yourself,not giving a damn about others.But i am yet to meet that person who has accepted who they are.I have seen everyone care about what others think of them,especially the ones who pretend that they don’t.

Why are we under this pressure?Do we have a way out?Would i ever stop complaining?Would i ever be able to stop obsessing over myself?

Mornings

Hold on to each morning sun,

remember

it was never promised.

For whatever reason,

the day needed you to wake.

I muse today

We all have moments in life when we stand at crossroads and have to make decisions which seem difficult.No,i am not talking about metamorphic,life-altering decisions.Because to be honest,i haven’t made any.Not my fault though.I wish i could give you some story about a harsh childhood,unloving parents or an alien encounter in my backyard.But no,i had a pretty normal childhood,an average teenage and now a below average adulthood.

Don’t get me wrong,i am really happy with my life.I can handle normal.Changes are a whole new level and i have a zero experience.I don’t know how people are dealing with their lives.I am someone who has what you can say the first world problems in a third world nation(this idea of ‘first’ and ‘third’ world is outdated though).You know,the basics like no wifi at relative’s house,waiting a week for new episode of your favorite show,phone running low on battery but the socket too far from my bed,my Uber 5 minutes away from location,choosing between an iced latte and green apple mojito,not able to get a spray tan because you are already brown.So yeah,these are the kind of troubles i face currently.

Anyhoo,i still like to analyze the way i am dealing with my life and the person i am becoming.I try not to hurt people around me.I try not to get hurt myself due to wrong people.So whenever i am in a pickle,where i am kinda hurt and the other person is not a terrible one,i try to put myself in their shoes.This not only calms down the situation but also help you get another point of view.This gradually inculcates as a habit and you atleast have one trait-Empathy.Its an important one too.

Sympathy is easy,you look down on the person concerned and feel bad for them.Empathy is hard,because you have to come down to their level and try to feel how the other person is feeling.

So next time,try not to be selfish.Respect how they feel.And react after analyzing the whole situation.If it still doesn’t feel right,confront and tell them how they made you feel.Its important for them to know.

To being a better person,

Ru.

Do i wanna know?

‘Cause there’s this tune i found

that makes me think

of you somehow

And i play it on repeat

Until i fall asleep.

Misfit

You see parts of yourself

in those around you.

This helps you connect 

with the world you live in.

So don’t shut others out

just because you see 

your reflection casted in them.

Its okay that you don’t like

some things about yourself.

But know that we 

are all flawed

All just random combinations

of similar bits

All learning to deal

with this facade.

Standing here on hilltop

I am asking nature 

to give me a hint.

As i stand still here,

listening carefully to the

whispers of the wind.

Because i don’t know

what should i shout?

Maybe the echoes from

these mountains

will clear my doubts.

Kind

Its so much easier to hate

Being kind takes effort.

 

You have to crush

the vicious thoughts,

And tell yourself

that you could be better.
