When I was a kid, I used to think that the more friends one has, the better their lives are. I don’t think good lives are ever measured by the amount of relationships. Its always about the quality of the relationship. I realized that now.
I think that as kids, it is easier to invest time and energy into making friends and trying out new people to see if it works out for us.

The monotony of imagery is depressing.

I miss them already. My parents.
Teenage is not just. Its not weighted. Its rock bottom. Emotionally. And we grow from there. Continue reading Teenage is not just. Its not weighted. Its rock bottom. Emotionally. And we grow from there.
I have been feeling lazy lately. I think the weight of the unknown future is too heavy than knowing what the present can do to make it better. The future, and the uncertainty of our ambitions coming to fruition that comes along with these dark thoughts is overwhelming. Maybe that’s why they’re dark thoughts, the future is indiscernible.

I have been trying to understand why it is so easy to dream
and much easier to procrastinate.
Life is like the sky is at basant
Colorful. Vibrant. Full of itself.
Each kite hung in the museum of temporary sentiments through a thread covered in crushed glass. Continue reading Kites Lost in the Sky Have to Fall Down

I have doubted the significance of truth in my body by being in the toilet of my medical college
I have inhaled the truth of the boys and men – who are too afraid to be themselves –
in the smoke of their cigarette. Continue reading The Boys Who Smoke in Bathrooms

(can anyone really know that though?)
or it can be the rose bush going dry
(in springtime!). Continue reading Birds You Do Not Feed, On The Rooftop of Your Smog-lit Life
