Quite an introvert by nature, I always had that urge to unlock the cage of fear of judgement and open my wings of thought and let it soar higher and higher without any barrier.
A country where Goddesses are being worshipped for power, strength, knowledge, money, well being, yet women are not being treated fittingly here. Why the society teaches their daughters how to be a lady? Why don't they teach them how a woman should be treated?
We don't realize the value of a person until they are gone; we don't miss them until they permanently go away from us. We don't realize how much it can impact us until we face the crisis. Life is so very transient and unpredictable, so what's the point of carrying hatred and grudges against one another? What's the point of holding back our feelings and emotions for one another?
We all are quite informed of the facts on how does a person feel when he is dealing with depression. But 'why' does one feel so, what pushes them towards that endless dark hole? Whenever depression is being discussed, everyone suggest to speak with someone and open up about their problems. But why they choose not to talk and rather let themselves succumb in the hands of death?
Was the girl wrong for wanting to pursue her dreams? Was she wrong in defending herself for her dream even when her parents were turning against her? What she should have done after that argument? Should she stand for herself or just let it be and accept to what her parents were asking her to do?
This poem is dedicated to all those long-distanced loving couples who are unable to meet one another for months and years, yet holding on fast to their dreams of getting together permanently one day or the other.
It's so strange how a single flower can give us so many valuable lessons. Just think for a moment, if the plant had started blooming in its normal timing, would our joy be the same as we felt on seeing it after six years? I think no. Though it was delayed, the wait was worth it. It is all about timing.
But during that phase, little did I realize that life, in fact was making me stronger and wiser with each challenges. Time and experience being the greatest teachers, it has been teaching me valuable lessons at every point of my life, and that too in hard ways. With increasing age, I got to experience a lot of things, making me aware of the fact that life is so unpredictable and that it's different for different individuals.
