Always I have written for me before anyone else but my words are for anyone and everyone who seeks comfort in them.
But today, it feels different.
Every inch of paper thats absorbing my pain , every ounce of ink .. every word, I am using is adding to my guilt, for in times like these , these words may and I hope they do find someone who need them more than me.
I dont know if all this makes sense to the reader, but for now I am keeping the pen down for I have added enough guilt.
So a few days back I ‘celebrated’ my 22nd birthday. Well you must be wondering why that celebrated is in quotes.
One day before my birthday I was day dreaming about how happy and happening tomorrow will be for me. Then it hit me, that my everyday can be this happy, this exciting … but only if I choose to make it that way.
By now this post has started sounding cliché but the only wisdom my 22nd birthday taught me is the concept of birthdays is stupid.😂I am sorry
Go on .. have a big cake on your birthday..but hey, don’t forget to have a small pastry everyday.❤️
So my city faced a storm yesterday and as a result a power failure.🙄 ( Typical Indian situation) . What good could come out of it when its too hot , the ac wouldn’t work, my phone had minimal battery aaand I cannot watch the IPL ! 🙄 ( an Indian cricket league) But, I was in for a surprise. I decided to spend the night in the balcony with my pillow and a chatai (a portable indian mattress) .
It was a cloudy night. Heavy rains had just stopped. The moon could be seen .. not too bright , just a blurry white that looked more like a cloud.
Sometime later , as clouds cleared ,few stars made their
Greeting the night sky with their twinkling .
Occassionally pleasant breeze would touch my face, and I could hear the rustling of the water laden tree leaves behind me .
It was still drizzling and a few drops would hit my face from time to time.
There , I had a moment with my soul. 🖤
And the rest of the night went away partying with the soul.
PS. It’s morning now, there is still no power . My phone is at 3 percent . 😂
