You pour out your emotionsYou put your heart outin the hands of a new soulyou become vulnerable every minuteevery second you float

You have spoken from the deep corners of your heartyou are completely nakedIn front of a strangerstripped off your liesyou can't fake it even for a minute

 
His voice gives you voicehis heart gives you rhythmyour life glows on his brightnessIgnoring the naysayer's wisdom

 
Wearing your heart on your sleeveliving life in a heartbeatbraving the feelings to this cruel worldYou tap to the beat

 
You traded a heart for a heartSealed the deal with a kiss

Not knowing how long this will last

Now be ready to live with the risk

Mental Health Awareness Post (Regular Feature #1)

I applaud the efforts of my fellow blogger friend Varnika, who crafted a series to spread the awareness on Mental Disorders, and the social stigma around them. Do give it a read and spread the word.

Moonlighting Scrivener

Hello, everyone!
We can change the world, one word at a time. On this note, today, I’m going to do my bit by spreading awareness about mental health issues. I may not be qualified enough to decipher the intricacies of functionings of the human mind. However, I’m acutely aware that mental illnesses are still considered taboo in our society.

No one recognises, addresses, discusses or resdresses these problems. Yet, you’d be  surprised to know that mental illness is not a dirty secret to be always kept under wraps.

I have previously written about my experience and learning from my struggles with depression. There are many more such ailments like anxiety, insomnia, obsessive compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, attention deficit disorder, disassociative identity disorder, even kleptomania, to name a few.

Static

Have you ever tried to Stifle your pain?

Megha's World

A stifled voice
still mumbling
but choked by
memories
in the numbed mind

A mind
deeply
disturbed
by the atrocities
witnessed by eyes
carved deep inside

A pair of eyes
gazing from emptiness
in heart
to nothing
simply living
an onerous plight

A heart tired
and burdensome
seeking reprieve
from the burdensome
reality weaved by the mind

A mind with thoughts
obliterated
in the
wanton knowledge
of the malicious body

A body withered and dragged
scraped and bloodied
holding onto the
last dregs of sanity
for his soul, so kind

A static soul
frozen on time
bounded
by the memories
and the pain
undefined.

Static is the pain
Undefined.

The Goal is not to be Successful , The Goal is to be Valuable.

Once you are valuable, Instead of chasing after success,

It would attract itself  to you.

                         –  BOSSBABE

Do you know?

That you are responsible for your actions.

Do you know?

That ignorance is not an excuse.

Do you know?

That the saying “What you don’t know would not kill you”

Is an excuse for those that are not ready to learn?

Do you know?

That knowledge is power!

Do you know?

You are who you think you are and who you see yourself to be?

Do you know?

You are addressed the way you are dressed?

Do you know?

That the way you present/carry yourself, is the way people perceive you to be?

Never mistake knowledge for wisdom.

One helps you make a living;
