Looking in the bathroom mirror
I talk to living ghosts
relics of today
that haunt my searching eyes
gazing back
a talking girl
with ears for words unheard
playing out
what could be said
if perfect
when called
if moments
when needed
if words
could travel
through time

water runs
hands dry
lights off
on another
lonely conversation

maybe if I would've fought to stay
it was on you
maybe if I said things differently
it was on you
if I would've said 'I care' more
it was on you

maybe if I would've put myself first

I wouldn't be stuck wondering
of all the things I could've done different
to help y o u

things would be different
if I would realise that
it was on you
Ive spent so long wondering why I couldn't make you love yourself the way I thought you should

Have you ever prepared
for something so hard
that has not happened
but your mind
spread a web
like a google map,
the questionnaire is set
possible answers are met,
with your infinite
shining white,
paper sheet.
You are ready
to confront that
unknown fate
in your head.
And when that minute
and you are confident
and brave
to utter
your absolute
you meet
a silence.
No questions asked
No answers followed
and you stand dumbstruck
to feel wasted.
All this while
you were prepping
to meet the "One"
Often we prepare ourselves too much to meet things which are out of our comfort zone. And when we finally meet it, we are not questioned for anything  but just needed to be present.

Before my journey
to King Paul's Palace Gala
I received a note

Being curious
I opened it and I gasp
and I fall in shock

My voice has been heard
Now I'll have a new conquest
But first, a small test

One I'm sure I'll pass
Then my studies will begin
Another conquest
***, I'M SO PUMPED!!!! ^-^
This course will be for ten weeks but I'll get so much out of it!
Interview's gonna be on the 3rd September but man, I was so stoked to hear that they are taking me on! It'll force me to tackle a series of challenges , to learn more about myself, and to conquer some of my fears.
Fingers crossed!

I never understood mathematics;
however I can add your negligence,
multiply my displeasures
to summarize your subtracting feelings, and calculate your ******* behavior.
Let's divide.
Special dedication to those who have experienced toxic friendships, relationships, anyone that has ever made a negative impact on your life, etc.

*also, the title is in reference to rise over run in mathematics. See what I did there? ;)

When choice is a lie,
And duty shuts its eyes
To all you've been.


Back where you began,
Push hard against the hands
That bind you,
Remind you
Of the failures of your now.


Within your murky deep,
Reject the secrets that still keep
Steal you
Seal you
Hiding in a sleep,
Compromising all your dreams.


Chase the doubt
Scream it out,
Confront dusk and dawn and all
Who come to call for your demise.

And rise.

I am the thing

that i fear most

This body and mind
are simply host

to the tangled web
of thoughts and actions
like a mass of hair and legs
Almost an army, or a faction

Messy, despised and yet feared
I see now, my path is clear

i was born to live short and die often

Building upon my web, again and again.

In the highs and lows of life
In the ups and downs of life
In the yes and no's of life
When confronted with any doubts in life hesitation will not work
Clarity of thoughts will make the difference
Transperancy in pattern of work must be followed by clarity of thoughts

Be clear in your mind with regards to what you have got in your mind and all that you want from life.

When the right moment of time comes strike a deal with the inner self
Once decided, then it's time to make the next move
Always it's better to watch and wait and then decide how to move ahead.

When the desire is to do something specific, then that desire must have a strong backing.
A desire must be followed by firm willingness to pursue and achieve the desire that's in mind
When the desire becomes strong and concrete it will then be accompanied by a willingness to face odd, which will come along the way.

An odd that comes at an odd moment of time in the middle of your way needs to be solved.
organize yourself, your time and space.
Find a way out,
An idea, method, technique, trick,  whatever may be the need of hour
Find a way out, which will get the odd out of your way.

Experiences from prior have always told one thing
Odds are always there for most of the time
Better deal with them, handle and tackle them
Learn from the odds that you face
In doing so the best thing that happens is you will have an experience of your own.

Even if you think it otherwise,
the other way round life had never been smooth, simple and easy
Never did it happen that after overcoming an odd everything in life became calm and quite, as if nothing happened prior.
On the contrary, after overcoming an odd the next moment of time will tell you how to move ahead in the direction of goal
Life had never been simple and easy
All that happened was it always seemed like life is simple and easy.

Always keep in mind,
always follow the same
Make a habit, register somewhere at the back of your mind
Odds do not change the rest of things in your life
It's important that you remain firm in your mind,
firm with regards to overcoming an odd and don't give up.

Never give up against any odds in your life
When you accept a defeat against overcoming an odd,
everything from the present date and time moves into the past.

Better face the odds as they come along your way
Give your best
Make every possible effort to overcome the odd
Always have something definite in your mind,
Both before and after facing an odd
Better to have something of own in life
Better to be what you are
Always represent yourself as what you really are in your life.

Consistency is the name of the game in which every element of your life plays an important role
Everything is of concern
Everything becomes important in life when it comes to getting consistency in life

A lot of events that happen in life can be experienced only once
They never get repeated
Never does it happen you prove your skills, capabilities, abilities and identity all the time in your life
Recognition comes over a period of time
Experience and expertise becomes a part of your life then
Experience and expertise always counts in everyone's life
They have got a place in everyone's life.

Not only when you participate in a competition, but also otherwise as and when an untoward thing happens, when something goes wrong, be honest at that time.
Honest and confident about yourself
Confident about your skills and expertise
Now when you know your own position and ranking face the facts and search for truth
Just because something went wrong it's important that truth must come out
Truth will come out only when honesty is there.

Before the outside world interferes in your way of doing things
Once and for all understand, realize and accept the fact, which clearly states, who you are based on your prior performance
No need of going into what the world says
In the world outside most of the time there is always something for sale
Time changes
Attitude differs
Trends change
Important that when all of this happens, the person inside you remains the same
Also otherwise the outside world works in a very different way
In the outside world it's all hype
The hype that's created around you
It's all fiction
The fiction that gradually becomes a part of your life
Followed by imagination, desire and dreams.

It's all about life and the world in which you live and work, not the outside world
That's the bitter truth of life
Each and everything belongs to you
You are part of it
Still you will often come across the fact that you are not part of every group
You are not like others
Others are definitely not like you
For one reason or another, many individuals hide themselves from agreeing upon the fact as to what they really are and this not only matters, but is also of concern.

It's always better to be a small part of a larger picture
Better than doing something insignificant of your own and remaining satisfied with the same
Simple things in life don't take much time
Over a period of time you learn them on your own
Later they become part of your life and your habit
It's always better not to get engaged in more than required proportions in doing simple things of life
Over a period of time you become used to it and they become a part of your life.

In the highs and lows of life
In the ups and downs of life
In the yes and no's of life
As and when you get confronted with any doubt in life
Better to wait for a moment or two and then move ahead in life.
