Drown to Death

Lift me up when you’re free
from underneath this pile of memories.
That’s where I refused to sink
but there, my life drowns to death.

A Journey To Freedom

When everything settles down one day,
I will set out to find “the land of freedom“.
My destination will be far-far away;
a land where nobody knows me.

I will be alone in my whole journey
with the tore out pages of my old life
One by one I will throw them into the wind
and acquire the ‘forever-peace-of-mind’.

I will buy a black scarf and cover my neck tattoo.
I will grow a big beard to feel matured.
I will ignore the scars the society gave me.
I will forget the story of “you-and-me-forever”.

Love won’t be a prison to me anymore.
No name. No religion. No face. No gender.
I will see the whole world as my family.
I will stretch a hand for anybody who needs it.

Nobody will judge me for being myself.
No question will be raised for what I do.
Then I will live a life as the person I want to be
without the need of being born again.


Even if this “land of freedom” is beyond our wildest dreams, let’s set out to create a world where everyone is free to express their emotions and ideas by breaking all the walls.


I dedicate this poem to my dear friend “Nazrin” for this amazing idea she always carried and expressed in the best way possible during my internship days and to remind the unforgetful memories I had within a few days.


New Lessons

There is a thing about a college. I hate it. I always considered it as a place where I find myself very sad and irritated. But the last few days gave me a lot of new experiences to save into my memory jar. As I mentioned in an earlier post I have an urban study as part of my 9th semester architecture syllabus. We, my batch chose to study the city Alappuzha in Kerala, which is a beautiful city extended between two canals which is often called “Venice of the East”. It was fun to stay with my classmates and late night works were tiring. I am not here to explain about the whole trip. But I wish to share how these few days helped me to explore a part of myself that I never knew.

I tried to capture the best moments in my phone. I was so excited to know about the roots of a city. There were many things new to my knowledge. And we had to conduct a lot of surveys. I am usually a person who would love to sit in my room and read a book even if I wish to travel the world.  But during the study I was forced to do works assigned and it included a big list of things I never thought of doing myself. But results actually shocked me and the best part was the satisfaction and happiness I felt after everything. I was a bit confused to walk into the streets and ask questions to random strangers I met. I had a feeling that what if they do not cooperate. But my experiences were really good that people were happy to talk about them and they were very friendly too. I felt that world is not a bad place to live.

Within a few days I learned many things which I find very difficult to explain. I am happy to see a new part of myself. A talkative and inquisitive person who is very happy to talk to people and find new information, who is ready to hear the stories of people and who enjoys what he does. I think I love this new person. I really don’t like to say I am changing but I love to say that I am growing up. One thing about life is that we are forced to change by certain responsibilities. And we are never going to grow up if we stay afraid to step forward. I still believe that I have to explore a lot about this world and I have to learn more than what I find in books. For the coming days I am happy to be a person who would love to live in a book and to walk out and try to explore something new.


CANVAS

Conceptual-Photography-Ideas-36

Locked mouth and loud mind;
rolling tears and blurry vision.
Head down! Legs crossed!
New dimension within four walls.

Faded melody of pouring rain.
Melancholy of a caged bird.
Fire that burned the icy-breeze.
My hand that rose… Wiping tears!

Scribbling pen and scratching nails;
four grey walls become a Canvas.
Speaking words and screaming colours;
the locked mouth break into a wide smile!

These four walls, my dream canvas
opened a new world I can escape.
The more I scratch, the more I see
a mirror with my free reflection!

HEADS UP!

Hey guys,

Happy day. So today when I thought of blogging; I was thinking crazy over my head to grab a topic but I came up with nothing, and I searched on youtube “how to be a blogger”. I just want to remind you guys, I felt bad when I went through all those stuff. Most of those videos are posted as if blogging is simply a ‘platform-hunt’ for those who want fame; but what I seek is not that. A platform to share my ideas even if I think they’re bad and so that I just want that to let go out of my mind. So yeah! Today’s topic is “heads up!”

Heads up! Do you expect something bad? No sure. We all expect the best for tomorrow. But what I suggest you to expect the worst, so that you won’t fall out easily. “We don’t always get what we want”. You must be thinking what my point is. We are surrounded by a world of technology and brilliance and we are in midst of our simple and silly problems of our life; busy living in our own little world.  I think it’s the time for us to get out and enjoy. In one way or other we all are bound to our little problems and egos and rethinking the same thoughts over and over again as long as we make it a big obstacle against our freedom.  Continue reading HEADS UP!
