Keep Fighting

Instead of being ashamed of what you’ve been through , be proud of what you’ve overcomed I still remember the day you nearly fell for the temptation Dark clouds looming in the sky threatening to burst into rain which never came The fleeting image of your face On a mirror Your body bundled in the … More Keep Fighting

The Angel Of Death

I am not afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens. Woody Allen I waited for a few seconds Before creeping into his room I have never seen anything like it His baby face carefully contorted As if he was having the most peaceful of dreams, I mean how could … More The Angel Of Death

You smell like hidden motives. You were a Fraud, Ever since you stepped into the room, I could smell it in your expensive clothes, And I could see it on your cleanly shaven head. Even when you looked my way, And your eyes seemed to pierce my soul, I knew there was something about you, … More FRAUD

The society mercilessly wants me to behave a certain way that a few barbaric individuals have invented. They want … More Stereotypes

Remind me

Remind me to breathe. For sometimes it escapes the confines of my mind.  Then my lungs fail me, and the air isn’t as sweet as I remember. It squeezes my chest so tightly in its palms, draining my life away. And the pain is unbearable.  Remind me that this is only temporary and it’ll get … More Remind me

A Letter for you

Wake up my darling, It’s out there, we’re burning. Beware of society, They’ll raise you up, Shower you with exquisite gowns, Take you to the best suites of the world’s most amazing places, Like a hen for slaughter, You are being fattened.   And when the time comes, when you are completely unaware, enjoying,  all … More A Letter for you
