Sleep Paralysis 

Today I had my second encounter with what according to my research is called ‘Sleep Paralysis’. My first experience with this thing was during the christmas break. ‘Terrifying’, would be the word I’d like to use to describe both the episodes. 

 For those of you who don’t know what it is, Sleep Paralysis is a state in which a person is conscious, but is unable to move or talk or perform any such actions. Now I am no expert, so all I can say is that it has something to do with our brains and the Rapid Eye Movement ‘REM’.

People often say that during sleep paralysis, they usually feel something demonic, supernatural or simply a presence but well, according to science, sleep paralysis often comes with hallucinations, so that explains the demons and unwanted supernatural intruders. In my case, I don’t believe that I was visited by any demon (On a serious note: I do believe on demons, more on ones that live inside of us and create our dark sides. And since I am a ‘protector of myths’ I believe on each and every myth that exist, you just have to name it) – So as I was saying, No demon visited, however during the first experience, I hallucinated that the world was shaking, I didn’t know what was happening and I was ABSOLUTELY terrified! I couldn’t move, I wanted to scream and the worst of all, I knew I wasn’t dreaming. 

The second one was actually not that terrifying as the first one, at least I knew that I was having another ‘Sleep Paralysis Attack’ and good thing that it lasted just for a few seconds, however, the symptoms were as same as the first one, I couldn’t move, tried to scream but I had absolutely no control over myself. 

After it was over, I didn’t dare go to sleep. And thus the whole day was really crappy. So I just wanted you all to know what this Sleep Paralysis thingy is. It’s terrifying. No doubt, you feel like your time on Earth is over, but I guess I will deal with it just fine the next time it happens again. Yeah right. Me and sleep paralysis are good friends now 😀

Having the world on your shoulders.

When the whole world is on your shoulders, what do you usually do?

Do you cry? Or pretend that everything is alright?

How bad can it be to feel that way, though? 

Can it even be worse than what I feel?

And what do people who have never experienced it before think it would feel like?

I am not writing these questions to answer them.

I am writing them simply because I don’t know the answers to them.

-Peace ✌

I struggle.

I struggled and I lost

I tried again

I cried and bore the pain

I tried to understand

What was it I was doing wrong?

I never got the answer;
I looked around,

And searched for something ‘normal’

Something I’ll never have

And yet again, I struggle,

And again and again

 I lose;
I get tired

But I’ll never stop searching

For that one answer

Why can’t all be normal?

And so I struggle,

And this is why I struggle.

-Sarah Rashid

-Peace to you all ✌


She kept walking
Lost in her thoughts
She looked down and suddenly stopped
She saw her shadow and realised
That was the only thing she could recognize
All dark, the soul consumed by demons
With only a few withering flowers inside.

-Hola a todos! I created this new facebook page where I will be uploading the photographs that I take for this blog and also the stories behind them. The stories may be a little poetic because you people know who I am 😛 Make sure to check the page out as well.
-Happy Holidays everyone!

-Have a nice day

Why is that?

​All my ugly demons

Come out on that point when

All those ugly memories resurface

Why can’t it be normal

Why can’t I not care

Why is this so much for me

To bear?

Cause’ I ve been bearing it for a long time

I tried to hide it with a scar and line

But I cant seem to find a way out of here

And why is that?

Cause I know when I’ll come to a breaking point

I’ll lose all the calm and say they’re behind

This all.

But why is that?

Cause’ I ve been bearing it for a long time

I tried to hide it with a scar and line

But I cant seem to find a way out of here

Oh, why is that?


-Sarah Rashid 😊

– Happy holidays to those pf you who have em’. I hope everything is working out fine for y’all. 

– Be nice, do good.

-Peace to you all✌✌

King Robert And The Spider.



And now
When all is done, there is nothing to say
You have gone and so effortlessly
You have won, you can go ahead tell them

Tell them all I know now
Shout it from the roof tops
Write it on the sky line
All we had is gone now

Tell them I was happy
And my heart is broken
All my scars are open
Tell them what I hoped would be impossible,

-Impossible by James Arthur

Hello. Sarah Rashid here. I write poems and all that comes to my mind in this blog of mine, in case you people forgot. I won’t blame anyone who did though, because it’s been 17 days since I blogged. I honestly missed writing and you could probably see it the way I am blabbering right now so without any further delay let’s start on today’s topic.

I remember that when I was in elementary school, we read this really inspiring story. I usually don’t remember stuff that old but that story has just help me fight through so much in my life I can’t help but recall it whenever it’s neccessary. The story is really famous so I am sure many of you would be aware of it. I think it’s called ‘KING ROBERT AND THE SPIDER’. 

The story is about the king of Scotland as far as I can remember. He and his army were once defeated in a battle. The king took shelter in a cave to save his life. He was feeling really dejected about losing the battle when he saw a spider trying to weave it’s web. Every time the spider would try to make its way up, it would fall down, the spider kept going up and then slipping down, it kept trying, and finally after a lot of tries, it finally completed the web. As King Robert observed all this, he realized how a small spider had tought him such a big lesson. He had failed once only because he just tried once. So finally knowing what to do, Robert went out and gathered all the soldiers who had survived. He went to the battle again and lost again, he went again and lost and so it went on until he finally won. And that day, he learned the most precious lesson of his life, ‘If you fail at the first attempt, try try and try again’.

And this why I love this story so much. I don’t care if it’s true or not. It is just so inspiring I don’t know how can anyone not take a lesson from it. I remember this amazing line from a Paulo Coelho book, ‘Only he who gives up is defeated, Everyone else is victorious’ – The Manuscript Found In Accra ( I L.O.V.E THAT BOOK!)

So, fellow bloggers, if you try and try and try, again and again, you do succeed at the end. I really want to know if you people have any such experiences and stories like King Robert’s, if so, please please C.O.M.M.E.N.T!!!

– Wish you people have a lot of fun in the halloween holidays, (if you guys get any).

-Hope you all had a great weekend.

-Be nice, do good.

-Peace to you all!

I told them I’ll fight this storm

I told them I’ll make it alright.

They laughed and told me ‘You know what’?

You can’t even remember what is light

I said I don’t care if I will be alone

I won’t give up

My heart is a stone

They said ‘Oh you’re talking about your heart’

That’s a good chance, now we will start

Forget  your heart let’s come to your brain

One that doesn’t remember things that are sane

One that was damaged in a single hour

One that gave you a thousand scars

I said

Enough about my brain and heart

This is my life

I don’t need your part

I’ll live it as I want

With fights and falls and storms

But you’re none to murder my hope

I’ll do what I want

And that’s how I’ll cope.

-Sarah Rashid

-Peace to you all 🙂


It is possible to make a beautiful fire even in the snow.

So we will let our dreams take flight

And our hearts ignite

Did you know that it’s true

Everything is possible 

There’s nothing we can’t do

It’s a wild and beautiful fire

And I believe in you.

-Believe by Shawn Mendes.

Hey. I know I am not really writing anything that make sense lately, but I am a little lost right now.And a lot of things are not making any sense to me as well. Nothing big. But I’ve been overthinking a lot lately. And I like or not, it’s taking a toll on my blogging.

To be honest, the response that I get from other bloggers even when my own writing doesn’t satisfy me is really fascinating. So that pushes me to keep writing even on days when I am feeling low. 

The stuff that I wrote above was not suppose to be the part of this post. But, whatever. In this post, I am going to copy-paste one of my old post from February 2015. I was really new to blogging back then but when I read that post today, it felt like one of the best thing I’ve ever written. So without any further delay, here it goes:


SUCCESS was, is, and will be the most wanted factor in a person’s life. It demands you dedication, honesty, time and your STRUGGLE. If we see and observe the life of the most successful people of the year in present, we may be left stunned by the number of failures and hardship the respective person might have faced. People who set their goals to achieve success at a young age with no or little experience are often discouraged by the society and are also advised by people to stay calm and keep their passions depth low. But researches have proved that those young people who set to find their destinations at young age are tend to be more successful than those who keep weaving their teenage dreams but make no efforts to work upon them. And then finally become the employees of those brilliant minds who used to bleed themselves to work when those teenagers used to be busy partying.

Recently, my passion for books led me to read a book named “THE MAGIC OF THINKING BIG’. The book was indeed magical the contents of the book were,

  1. Believe that you can succeed and you will
  2. Cure yourself of excusitis, the failure disease
  3. Build confidence and destroy fear
  4. How to think big
  5. How to think and dream creatively
  6. You are what you think you are
  7. How to turn defeat into victory

These were SOME of the magical book’s contents. The rest of them were also good but these were The Best. The moral of the whole topic was that YOUare the only person who knows what you can do. At many stages of life, people may discourage you, criticize you, and force you but the end of the day, YOU ARE YOUR OWN HERO. You will see the result of your success and in the whole painful journey, you’ll know the REALITY of this world.

The End.

I don’t know if many of you have read it before but I had to post it.

-Thanks for reading

-Have a good day

– Be nice; do good

Dream For That One Day.

One day,

It would be morning again

And one day,

The dark would go away.

One day,

There would be no pain

And one day,

Happiness would stay.

One day, 

We would feel free

And one day,

They’ll open their eyes and see.

One day,

Humanity would be revived

And that one day,

Hope will come alive.

– Sarah Rashid ☺

-Hello people. I know I’ve been inactive for a while now but well, I had my reasons. I have had so many ideas to write about for the past weeks but well, I’ll update all that time by time.

– Peace to you all. 

A Search For Peace

The comfort from all the sadness

Is in the waves of the sea

The wind hitting my face

In all its glory

Can be found somewhere else

Or impossible it can be

But what’s wrong in trying

What’s wrong with the search of peace.

– Sarah Rashid ☺

I wrote this thing a while ago, but it always seemed a little incomplete. I read it yesterday and it seemed normal then. Weird. Nevermind. Have a good day.
