Shadow

14 Apr

It feels good when you finally start to figure things out and and learn to differentiate between what’s permanent and what’s temporary. The temporary things, even if they mean the world to us, have a reason not to follow the same path as ours, or maybe there’s a reason we cannot follow the same path as theirs.

I like to believe that mental and emotional breakdown occurs when you are all at once fed with an amount of truth you weren’t trained to handle. Truth is not a dangerous thing but it must be allowed to work in the right flow. Any obstruction in its path can cause an overflow at later stages, leading to catastrophes a human mind has never known.

I’m not a fan of alienations. Regardless of all the disagreements with all the friends I have lost, in my heart I would always wish that they would come back someday with a smile on their face, for I have given everything to make them come back, so I can only wait and wait and wait and wait. Adamance will never let some people come back, and maybe someday I will hear of their death or they will hear of mine.

I’m tired of being told to take it easy. I am not going to take it easy till my last breath. If something’s not right, it must be fixed rather than be left alone.

Is it the empty glass,
Or the drunk up water –
That haunts me

Is it my own shadow,
Or an illustration of yours –
That stays with me.

    This is quite profound. Beautifully written.

    ” I like to believe that mental and emotional breakdown occurs when you are all at once fed with an amount of truth you weren’t trained to handle.” But you are not aware of what the truth you may explore in the time ahead which will cause the breakdown, are you?

    I like your writings much. You make so much sense. Also, their is this particular beauty in the words, this I am fond of!

      Thank you so much, Hira! It’s true, we’re never aware of what the future might hold for us.
