Defeated?

Altair and Vega.

The star crossed lovers.

They were like them.

She and her imagination.

Since she was a child, Everyone thought she plays alone, talks with her own self, is unaffected by the surroundings. But that was the point. They couldn’t see into her imagination. And she loved that part. Her imagination. Something that belonged to only her.

But then something happened. Something unknown. And just like they say ‘ The unknown is dangerous, yet the most beautiful’

Can’t believe that now, can she?

She had lost a part of her. Her imaginary world. The one that was her escape from the harsh reality. It was because she dreamed no more. She had no imagination left. Thus the most precious thing, her imaginary world – vanished. She couldn’t sleep at night the reason being, she had nothing to sleep to or for.

No peaceful world where everything happened according to her will. No dreams. No nightmares. No battles. No adventures. No expectations. No fairies. No heroes. Nothing that would make her feel like she was gifted with special powers.

What was left was just blankness. Blankness of the mind and soul. Her fears and demons had eaten it all. A shallow dreamless girl took over instead.

Now she’ll keep it all inside of her. She won’t expect. Won’t dream. Won’t complain. She won’t let it show.

But someday, she might get her gift back. Her imaginary world back. Her dreams back. Her expectations back.

It may take a day. it may take a week, it may take months, years. Or it may take forever. Till her destiny wants.

Till the real her resurfaces.

She’ll wait.

After all, she can’t be defeated, right?

– Peace.

A Unicorn’s trust.

The unicorn revealed it’s identity

Because it trusted them

But they were them, cruel and needy

‘Haven’t you ever heard’ they said 

‘You’re horn is the most precious’.

Or so they thought.

Little did they know,

The most precious thing did belong to the unicorn

Just that it wasn’t the horn

But the trust that it had placed in them.

Gone,

For an eternity. 

And thus the thing most precious,

Will never be given away.

– Hi. This is not the like my usual poem or piece of writing. I am not even sure if it is good enough but it quiet does hold a message.

– Peace ✌

Crushed Dreams.

She can’t trust them now. Not with her heart crushed into pieces. The once upon a time dreamer girl, is now gone.

The kindness in her is the only thing keeping her sane. After all she did crush her dreams by her own hands. And so with that, 

Gone is the hope element in her life.

She let go.

Still breaking. 

But a bit stoner than before.

– I hope you guys remember my slogan? 

– Be nice, do good 😊

Hi. This song and video, ages ago, made me 101% more certain on what I wanted to be in the future. And by that, I am refering to me wanting to be an oncologist and a better human being. 

This video is totally worth crying over. And it’s okay if you feel your heart clench, trust me it’s totally worth it.

– Donate if you people can, Please.

PS. The video belongs to Troye Sivan. An incredible human being and singer.

Laws over emotions.

The world is a better place with laws and rules than without them. Yes. Everything is peaceful and calm if everybody follows them. Yes. There would be a chaos in the world without them. Yes. But giving them more value than raw human emotions? No. 

We live in a world full of crime, wars, hatred, discrimination and diversity. In short, we live in a world of disasters. Heartbreaks are common for some and unknown to others. Living in continuous fear is an every day thing for some while others are not aware that it exist. Every human being has a purpose. So if you think that you have no purpose in life, then I can tell you what your purpose is. 

It is to help others. In any possible way that you can. It is to care for every single other being on this planet, regardless of their religion, culture, race or cast. Hate does nothing than give others pain. And even if you think that you have nothing that you can offer to someone, think twice. 

You can always make someone smile. You can always make someone’s day better. You can always give a good advice. You can help people sort out their problems. You can explain to those who are having  difficulty to understand. You can always make a person to stop crying. You can listen to those who feel low and help them get the burdens off their chest. And guess what? You don’t need money, power or any other thing to do those things stated above. 

Human emotions are painful and raw and real. And we cannot put laws and rules over them. I cannot simply accept it. Yes they are useful and yes they make world a better and sorted place but they are not greater than human emotions. 

Every day, we are surrounded by people who are going through so much we don’t know a thing about. Treating people good and human- like is all those people need. You are not greater than anyone and so just because you have more power or money or health or anything that’s better than someone, doesn’t give you a right to treat other people like crap. Because at the end, we are all humans. with emotions. 

I still don’t think that this post explains about all that I want to say. But I just want to say that we are all equals and we are all humans. Some of us can die in wars, while some of us can die in an accident, in a car that costs trillions. So if your hate and rasism and need to accept laws over human emotions is still greater than your humanity, then may God bless you. 

May the truth, love, humanity and struggle win at the end!

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 ✌

King Robert And The Spider.

I.AM.BACK!

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
Impossible
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!
