How I secured my place in the field.

Well, this is just an incident i would love to share with you all. Thankyou for reading :).

I’ve always had this passion for football, maybe much more than the boys who play better than me in the park everyday. Even after being told by practically everyone not to go play with them, i picked up myself rather confidently hoping no one would notice the scared and awkward girl behind that tough wall. Not hard to guess, they said they dont play with girls. That actually hit hard on my esteem, bit quite unbashed i tried my best to fit in. I fell, and picked up myself without complaining. Everyone would make fun of me, constantly reminding me i dont belong here. Some of the boys did realise my love for the game was bigger than my ego and had no other choice but to pass the ball occasionally.

Nothing has changed; i still fight everyday, i still fall, help myself, get occasional passes and high-fives, but now the boys are used to my presence and i am used to their attitude.

Now i’m the only girl they would play with and wait for to come down in the same confident way everyday.

Can I ask you something? :)

People interest me. I look around in the sea of faces in hope to find someone who won’t creep out if I randomly blurt “Do you believe in destiny?” ; and well, I admit, it’s difficult to convince people I’m sane whenever I do that. And so, at the end, I compel myself to be satisfied with questions like “How is the weather?” and “where do you work?” 

I’ve been writing for sometime now on WordPress and certainly feel intrigued with so many unique and beautiful views about life my fellow bloggers hold. So I’ve decided, instead of creeping out random people on the streets, I’d like to ask you all a few questions. You obviously don’t need to answer all of them, maybe 5, 2, or even 1 which you found to be thought provoking. And even if you don’t want to type all of that, maybe just ponder upon them? You might get to know so much more about your own thoughts! 

So here are the questions! 

  • What is beauty to you?
  • How do you define love?
  • Do you believe in karma? Why?
  • According to you, what is the meaning of life? Is there any?
  • Do you believe in God? Why?
  • What is your philosophy of life?
  • List some of your favorite artworks. (Anything…movies, books, poetries, paintings, songs..)
  • If everyone in the world had same interests as you, how different would the world be?
  • What are the things you feel everyone should experience at least once in their life?
  • What gives you hope?
  • What does ‘home’ mean to you?
  • What matters to you? Why?
  • What is something you do different from everyone else?
  • What are the little things you stop to appreciate and enjoy?
  • Any life advice you’d like to share with me? 

I’m looking forward to all your answers in the comments! 

Wanderer

​I am a wanderer

Seeking answers

Finding reality 

Where everything seems to be 

An illusion

I am a wanderer. 

Bear with me

My questioning eyes

The way I’m never satisfied 

I’m seeking for more 

More than the universe places before me.

I am a wanderer

Don’t get tired

Of me 

Don’t complain

When I tell you 

All this will never be 

Enough to quench my thirst

Of finding the truth.

For I’m a wanderer

And you are where I’ll come back after every discovery; 

You’re my pilgrimage, where I’ll come looking for peace 

After every journey.

Void

I’m sitting here

With coffee

In my favorite cup,

With all the books

That have ever touched

My​ soul, 

With songs

That play in my mind 

Over and over; 

With everything I’d ever want.

And yet, 

This emptiness

Is all I get to embrace, to hold.

Now I feel 

When you had in your remorse told me

That you wanted to return my favours, 

I should’ve simply told you, instead 

To give me back, myself.

Forever

As we grow old

And the secrets we hold

Will die with passing time; 

But your​hand in mine 

And the story so divine, 

Will live on forever. 

As the colors fade, 

And the butterflies shades 

Lose their serenity; 

But like the skies beyond, 

Our love will go on

Will never lose it’s beauty.

When the wrinkles on my cheeks 

Will describe an age so wise, 

You’ll never fade away, 

Forever be in lover’s eyes. 

This love is no less than heaven

And beautiful as ever; 

It’s never long enough, 

But no less than forever. 

Tiny tales

As you untangled my locks, 

My secrets spilled off;

While we lay there entwined, 

Your thoughts blending into mine. 

And when you looked at me, lovingly

Everything else faded; 

The same way how sun rays, 

Dancing through my hair, unbraided

Made the dark feel loved, look beautiful. 

Midnight thoughts..

​I sit here, spellbound

By the moon, her charm

Darkness that veils everything, 

Takes me lovingly in her arms. 

I sit here, reminiscing

My past glories, without judgement

Sans noise, just me and my thoughts

My poetries, my madness.

Night envelopes my fears

In her stillness, with her tricks 

I’ll never be a morning person, for the night is my kingdom 

And I, a slave her to her beauty, prisoner to her magic.

Tacit talks

You drink through the glasses 

Filled with regrets and sorrows;

Laugh it off, raise a toast, 

Shamelessly believing your smile hides it all; 

But my eyes know no bounds, 

They drown in your soul. 

Call it an unhealthy peculiarity, 

Your eyes can never decieve me; 

We may be strangers in words, 

But in silence,our conversations wander aimlessly. 

When tired of wearing masks, 

We befriend in misery; 

Our angels might not be aquaintances, 

But your demons find a home in me.
