Family [Short Story (2/2)]

I was left in this skepticism and then suddenly I became conscious of the environment surrounding my wife and it seemed more like a hospital and thats when reality struck me and I noticed the worry filled within my wife’s eyes.

The moment she saw me open my eyes, all the worry from her eyes disappears into an inevitable joy. She says my name and embraces me into a hug. I try hugging her back and asking her what happened and why I am in a hospital but even though the words are just on the tip of my tongue, the immense pain that I feel in my head doesn’t let me do anything.

Family [Short Story (1/2)]

I stand at the entrance of this lonely house as the sinister silence haunts my soul. I see my children laughing, playing and running towards me but they disappear the moment I try to come close to them and stop them from falling. My heart starts pounding loudly and my eyes get filled with worry as I search the house, and turn it upside down, but my children are nowhere to be seen. I hear the sound of my wife calling me out from the backyard and I run to look for her, but when I reach the backyard there is not a soul to be seen. “This can’t be happening. First my children and now my wife too?” I think to myself. I can’t do this anymore, I just can’t. I just hate myself for not being there for them when they needed me and now, it’s just too late… they are all gone. Continue reading

Wings

If I had wings,
I would fly.
I would smile,
at the beauty this world holds.

If I had wings,
I would raise high above people’s expectations.
I would soar higher and higher,
every passing minute.

If I had wings,
I wouldn’t be afraid.
To express my joy,
or to express my sadness. Continue reading

Value The Trust That You Have Earned

The most important things in a relationship is to have faith, trust and honesty.

Good afternoon everyone! Hope you’re all having a great day. Today I will be writing about faith and expectations. Let’s get one thing clear, faith can exist without expectation, but expectation can’t exist without faith. So this means that faith comes first.

Having faith in people is a good thing, because faith is something that means complete trust or confidence in someone or something whereas expectations are a strong belief that we come up with that something will happen or be the case. Personally, I feel that expectations spoil the reality of a person and make them into something that we want them to be, not what they want to be.

As a high school going girl, people have expectations for me to make studies the most important priority of my life right now. But the thing is that there is a very thin line between having faith and having expectations, so sometimes when people just have faith in you they end up burdening you with their expectation which will just bring you down.

Perfect Cage

I live in a perfect little cage,
a beautiful place I called home.
It never grows old wth age
a beautiful place I called home.

It’s majestic in appearance,
but looks can be deceptive.
I’m locked in this cage,
a beautiful place I called home.

I feel suffocated between these walls
I feel trapped by my thoughts
I wish I could fall
To get rid of these thoughts.

My sorrow has no end,
and my joy has no beginning.
This perfect little cage,
might be the end of my age. Continue reading
