Deception.

Lies – They protect us when we are children.

Break us once we grow old.

“Hush now dear children, It must be this way,
To weary of life and deceptions.
Rest now my children, For soon we’ll away,
Into the calm and the quiet”.

Wasn’t this what they sung to us when we were little? Told us we were suppose to be the guardians of this tale. And all the other tales that they made us believe in?

Did they change their assertions once we grew older?

Or did they lie all the while we stared at them in fascination?

But what are we suppose to do now? Now that we are no more children. And they are no more our tale tellers. Are we still the guardians of those tales. Or should we make a fake utterance like them and change it conventionally?

All these questions. All the inner conflict.

Only because we were lied to, as children – for the sake of our protection.

But now that we’re older – the same lies are breaking our existence.

And this is why I believe that –

Lies – They protect us when we are children.

Break us once we grow old.

The Price

‘Being strong came with a price,

She had to be completely broken from the inside’

Dialogue Series #2

– Sarah Rashid

– Peace to you all ✌

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?

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 

‘Your 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.

-Sarah Rashid

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 😀
