Who are you?
I am Me
And what’s so special about it?
Everything! Because unlike everyone I don’t try to be someone I am not,
Unlike everyone I am not scared of being myself, even if that means being extremely ordinary, boring, simple, ……….
Unlike everyone I don’t say stuff I don’t mean.
I don’t do things which I do not find agreeable
I am not perfect, I am work-in-progress
I need to learn more, but will there ever be an end to the thirst?
God forbid if that thirst dies what will we live for?
Thus, even in days when I think I am lagging behind, I remind myself
That I have all the time in the world
I don’t mind working slowly and taking breaks
Sleeping before the finishing line wouldn’t make a lot of difference either
It’s no Race
Even if it is, the finishing line is invisible
There are days I work hard to accomplish goals
There are days I spend doing nothing progressive
There are days I feel I am lagging but I don’t let this take over me
There are days the metaphorical speeches scare me
because I don’t fit in the list
I am neither a wave nor an ocean
I am neither a lion nor a fox
But who said I had to be like them?
Those metaphorical creatures or other accomplished men of this world
I said it before, I am me
And that’s good enough for me to be motivated again
There are days I fail at doing anything that I just talked above
but that doesn’t stop me from picking right from where I stopped the last time
Because I am everything someone else wants to be
Because I am different because different is me
So if you’re you, be delighted for it, because that’s rare
Not all stones can get hit by waves and still keep their shape in the river!
They told me love was how a father loved his daughter
How a mother loved her son
How Jack loved Rose
I wonder why nobody told me how my soul loved my body
How my eyes shed tears when my soul was hurt
How my lips smiled when my soul was happy
How my eyes glittered when my soul shone
I wish I was taught my type of
self love stories
-Self love is also romance
There will be times when nobody understands you, but in this time you should not stop believing in yourself. Just because they don’t have the caliber to understand you and your opinions, does not make you wrong. Remember how we blamed out maths textbooks when our answers did not match? That is what they are doing, don’t let them put you down.
You are an ART, some people will understand, appreciate, call you a masterpiece, while some will call it a paper with figures and colours. All you need to know is that you don’t need them to believe in you, all you need is you to have faith in yourself.
If they don’t understand what you say don’t stress your throat by yelling for their convenience rather, just walk away.
The one who understands you

There will be times when people would work really hard to make you believe that its your mistake, but don’t let them break your spirit I want you to know that you are fine and you’ll always be just because they think you are mistaken does not make you wrong or sick. There are many mouths but not all are worth listening to, so don’t let them make you believe that you are wrong.
You were not born to please everyone because only doormats are capable of doing so. Don’t let them make you believe that magic does not exist just because they feel so, because you know you posses it. Don’t empower them by giving them the control of your feelings, they can’t decide how you are supposed to feel about yourself.
You are a rebel and no rebel was praised by people until history was made. Don’t you ever doubt yourself just because they do so. Don’t be scared you have been alone and hated before, so don’t you worry, little rebel you’ ll survive this too and they’ll soon get tired but I know you won’t.
The rebel in you.
Dear Teenage Love,
Thank you for making me think if menstruation was like love because it caused the same mood swings, cravings and pain like you did but unlike you it made me go through this only once a month, also it comes with an expiration date after which it stops making attempts to come back to me like you did. I shall get over the pain and anxiety caused by it like I did after you were gone.
Thank you for making me understand
real your meaning of love.
