Where do I find that ray of sunshine in my life that everyone claims is just around the corner?
Where do I find the missing glint of happiness in my sad eyes?
Where do I find my smile that used to be praised by all?
Where do I find my hope that vanishes in seconds?
Where do I look for the sound of my laughter that people said lit up rooms?
Where do I find that belief that everyone tells me to keep?
Where do I go to when I don’t wanna be anywhere?
Where do I come from when I feel slightly calm?
Where do I find my sleep that has been lost?
Where do I go to when there’s no one around?
Where do I look for people called friends?
Where do I find the place where sorrow has an end?
Where do I find the courage to speak what goes in my mind?
Where do I let go of my bottled up emotions, is that place so hard to find?
Where do I look for the answers to the doubts that arise in my head?
Where do I look for my lost inspiration, or is this a dead end?
All I ask for is that in a world full of what’s , why’s and how’s, can somebody please answer my where’s?

L.I.F.E ❤️❤️

Life is not just about the number of days
It’s about small little things in happy ways
There are twists and turns, times of haze
Yeah, it’s one difficult maze
You’re not just about criticisms or praise
There might be a sad or happy phase
Difficulties will be there to face
But life is a destination, not a chase
It’s alright if sometime you’re in a daze
Just at everything you do try to be an ace
When the soul escapes and just the body lays
Make sure your memories emit happy rays
“Life is simple” is just a phrase
The good and the bad we need to embrace
The unwanted is what you have to trace
Life is not a competition,we are in no race
Your value to others, you cannot raise
It’s character what matters in any case
Remember all the good times, tie them in your heart love-filled lace
Never let the memories erase
A dreamless life is a building with a weak base
Life is not just about the number of days!!


Let’s go to a place where we’ve never been
We might witness things we want to but  have never seen
A place where everything’s going to be just fine
The one where we won’t fight for things calling them your or mine

Where the sun shines just a little brighter
Where within every person lies a little fighter
Where faith and hope never get down
Where everyone is royal and wearing their own crown

Where there aren’t people calling each other friend and foe
Where on everyone’s face there is a beautiful glow
Yes, the one where everyone is together and happy
Where there is no place for people that are crappy

Where when it rains it’s just a little more exciting
Where only for fun people are mock fighting
Where the surroundings are a little more clean
And where to help each other everyone is keen

Where happiness reflects from people’s eyes
Where no one other than an infant cries
Where a smile is all you need to make someone’s day
Where to express Love and care nothing one has to say

Where everyone is clean inside out
Where to click a photo you mustn’t pout
Where smile doesn’t need a reason to appear
Where compassion is on the priority dear

Where trusting somebody easily is not stupid or wrong
Where without any fear you could hum a song
The place where everything just becomes right
Where darkness doesn’t consume you even in the darkest night

Where no one makes a joke out of us
Where all’s good and there’s no fuss
Where hurting feelings is not on anyone’s list
Where things are always clear and there’s no mist

Isn’t it actually the place we all wish to live in
But all we do is seeing others commit a sin
Why aren’t we trying to build such a place
Where of this hellish area we find no trace…


Beads of precipitation on my forehead, dirty nails, filthy hair, laying their lifeless, the only thing keeping my lungs from collapsing was the tiny hole that brought in some oxygen for me to breathe in the glass cage. No matter how much I encourage myself to be optimistic, my hope collapses like a pack of cards. With barely audible whimpers coming out of my mouth, I wearily fight to keep my eyes open while anticipating my chance of survival. The transparency of glass displayed the options in front of me. I could either let these events crush me or I could emerge victorious because of them. And that was all the inspiration I needed to believe that it’s not over yet. I wipe the mist on the glass to get a clearer view. A sudden jolt of energy erupts through me making me believe of what I am capable of doing. No bars, no chains, no hands, no cage can stop me from reaching my destination. Tying my hair, and wiping off the sweat on my face, I frantically search for something that could help me escape. Confused as to why I wasn’t bothered to know who held me captive in this cage, I push away the thought and try to concentrate. When I couldn’t think of anything that’d help me break the cage, I almost lost hope. Because of the panicky state I was in, I forgot about the bracelet on my left hand. When a drop of salty water fell on it from my eye, a wave of happiness was felt through me. Hesitant of being hurt when the glass breaks, I was in a dilemma. But I could not let this chance go, because the power of my will to escape was greater than my fear of pain at that moment. And I knew, from there, there was no going back. I started banging the glass cage with my new found weapon. I was flabbergasted as to why no one heard the loud noise coming from my attempts. But thinking of it as God’s help, I continued my efforts. Neither the cuts on my fingers, not the blood oozing out could stop me. If persistence and determination could move mountains, this was just escaping from a glass cage. After several attempts, the glass began to crack and so did my knuckles as the bracelet was stuck on my hand. Finally, pieces of shattered glass were scattered on the floor and I was never so happy to see something break as I was in that very moment. The amount of pain I felt was gigantic yet nothing compared to my happiness. And as I ran with a piece of glass stuck in my ankle, even the excruciating pain could not stop me. Never had I been so happy looking like a mess. I also realised a few things while heading towards nowhere in particular. First, will and belief are the only things need to escape the entrapment of anything, even the societal norms or our very own thoughts. Secondly, we need to take risks in order to achieve something. Lastly, the most important thing I realised was just like we need sadness to understand darkness, dark to value light, captivity makes us realise the value of freedom. Also, the only way to escape pain is to experience it once and for all. The only way I could free myself from societal prejudices, my thoughts or the self created glass cage in my mind was to believe in myself.
