It’s easy to pop a balloon, but not break the brick wall. My heart is now a conglomeration of bricks. With time, it got stronger and stronger and is getting more harder to break. But, I keep trying clinging on the rope of hope, creeping through subdued shadows, to break it someday.
Yeah, you heard it right. I am in pursuit of an intentional heartbreak. How will it open until it is not broken? Only when it breaks and aches, I believe there’ll be ways that let in rays for an alternative exploration.
storm brews and roars thud

Ignore guttural growls just like the growls of the gut that don’t stop irrespective of being empty or full.
Guttural: being or marked by utterance that is strange, unpleasant, or disagreeable.
This is in response to the ‘One-Liner Wednesday Prompt’ by Linda G. Hill. The challenge is to write a motivational or funny one-liner inspired by the given picture.
There are people actuated by joy.
Few others are impelled by pain.
Discipline can drive; so can fears.
Many of us dream similar dreams.
Few who dream do it whatsoever.
Few others choose to focus elsewhere.
I remember a sentence that was shared by a professor, a few years back. He used to tell us interesting facts and historical stories every day for at least 10 minutes.
“I never said she stole my money”.
Now, try reading this statement stressing one word at a time.
➟ I never said she stole my money – Someone else could have said it.
➟ I never said she stole my money – I didn’t say that she stole.
➟ I never said she stole my money – I only implied it or witnessed it. Continue reading
The first celestial lesson we take as a kid is that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. But in reality, is it not the rotation of the Earth that makes the Sun appear to rise in the East? The difference is so subtle. We’re just logically tricked.
We all get to know this truth as we grow up but still choose to believe the lie that sun rises and sets. Why? Because it’s comfortable. For years together, we’ve trained our brain that way and it’s wired to take the easy-to-believe route that doesn’t need too many explanations.
Lying has been perceived as a disgraceful social habit. So, most often, we don’t lie in public. But, we continue lying in many other circumstances to our own self without even realising it. Continue reading
It’s better to vent our emotions than dumping them to maintain good mental health.

Laugh out loud!
Cry out loud!
This is in response to ‘The Saturday Six Word Story Prompt’ by Shweta of ‘My Random Ramblings’. The prompt for this week is ‘Loud’.

I ran to the moors chasing a rabbit. Thunder distracted me. I looked at the sky and stood there awestruck by the beauty of the mountains that were capped by dark clouds.
It started to drizzle. It felt good. I didn’t want to move. Hoping to spot a rainbow, I missed another rabbit, this time the one in the form of bubbled clouds, that crossed my path.
So is life. We chase our dreams and get stuck without working for them when there’s a distraction. Continue reading
“It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one. ”
– George Washington
Why do we make an excuse? Is that really bad?
Most often, it is. Every failure, every lost opportunity, brings in a growth retardant – self-doubt. When self-doubt enters our life, esp. when so much seems at stake, we start making excuses for two reasons:
➟ First, excuses make it easier to live with our failed expectations.
➟ Second, if we fail in a new trial, we already have a reason in hand.
The most common excuse which we come up with is the lack of time. We miss opportunities not because of lacking time but by misperceiving time. To support our arguments, the handiest tools are Continue reading

Indeed, there are many other peers far better than me in performance. But, I never demean my self-worth, even when I get tired of tedious journeys.
Blue haired fairy
flew away far,
to the green-eyed.
She cast spells
to de-ice lands,
making hearts sing
the blooms of spring!
Seeds of hope
and euphonious music,
spreading joy in the air
awakened sleepy souls.

Her mind was spinning,
so fast, like a broken
She came from a land of hills
from a place so high
with definite height.
Hills grow in inches
or slide a little,
but it was certain.
She’s uncertain, now onshore, Continue reading
I dream and dream,
through day and night,
like it’s my only errand.
With the rise of dawn,
dreams cheer me up
for an endurance test.
During the day,
they give me hope
and sustain me alive.
I keep following my dreams
forgetting the surroundings,
yet observing them keenly. Continue reading
