    "Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad."

    - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    Hearth disease has been labeled the silent killer, which the more I discover about the human psyche and how it affects are bodies, I couldn't agree more with the label.

    There are people we interact with everyday that are half a second away from being done with this world. They smile, many even make us smile; all while struggling to even put a coherent sentence together.

    No one really knows or understand what depression is or where it comes from but we do have great working theories and guesses. We have even found a way to blame the brain.

    In the end they're just that, guesses and theories. Everyone's depression is different.

    One thing I do know is love helps.
    It does not end the fight and its hard to say it makes it easier, but it definitely helps.

    What are you going to do to spread love today?


    "Its so hard to talk when you want to kill yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet."

    Ned Vizzini

    Deep Rest

    Stuck but not frozen in time
    The sun keeps rising and the moon is still shining living space is in disarray, it's always bedtime
    The internet says my Chakras need realigning

    I have food and shelter
    Work is steady and my health is otherwise fine
    It must be a receptor
    These bouts have plagued me since I was nine

    What do you do when the enemy is your mind
    Plenty of reasons to smile but still need a cure
    It's my own fault, my thoughts are impure
    No time to waste back to the grind

    Gaelic Blessing

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face;
    The rains fall soft upon your fields
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    These days, I'm exhausted.
    It's something that sleep doesn't cure
    Because my dreams feel so real
    Naps have me waking up in a panic

    I just want to rest, actually rest...
    Is there such thing short of death?

    Pencils in sand

    I have little pencils in my hand ,
    But there is no paper just sand
    Does it matter what I draw
    It wont last

    I can run and I can breathe
    I believe I am still on my feet
    Been standing much too long
    Can I rest ?


    You see I was always on the run
    Burnt my freedom in the sun ,
    Went too far before I knew, where am I ?
    Those Stars no longer show ,
    City lights chased them all
    Moon can still timidly glow , so is it fine ?

    Can I get a moment to be still
    Let the future pass if it will
    I am tired of the drill
    Can I now heal ?

    My heart aches for the snow
    For the rain I used to know
    For the wings I tried to grow
    Can I now fly ?

    You see I cant say I know the pain
    The daggers were thrown in drain
    The blood whispered in vain , please cry .
    Did the sea guessed it all
    Before the river made its fall
    Or nothing matters anymore , cause it dried.

    You see I was always on the run
    Burnt my freedom in the sun ,
    Went too far before I knew, where am I ?
    Those Stars no longer show ,
    City lights chased them all
    Moon can still timidly glow , Its not fine .

    The soul wants to rest and so does the body.
    But the mind rests not till it gets answers.
    The thirst isn't quenched but drains me further.
    So much to do and so little time.
    So much to learn in such a short time.
    Folly it was of me to not use the past time.
    Was that but a conscious choice?
    The heart bodes well but sleep dictates it all -
    both body and mind.
    It's a cycle I am trapped in
    even though I can see the rainbow through the surrounding bubble.
    It's a heavy heart with emotions all over the place as they say.
    And rightly so.
    For the more you strive for perfection,
    lesser are the moments of respite.

    Sunday Sadness

    Sunday.
    I wish the sun would go away.
    I wish I had the words to say.
    All I do is lay.
    An inner child is dying to play.
    Sunday.
    Most rest.
    Pass money on a tray.
    Sunday.
    Life in disarray.
    Skies are painted grey.
    Nostalgic memories begin to fray.
    For our sins, we eventually pay.
    Sunday.

    PA

    A loving husband & a wonderful father!
    The man of the house, a gem like no other.
    How our hearts crave,we have just a little while longer;
    But heaven decided it's time & we couldn't go any further.


    Only fond memories remain-
    To help us through this heartache & pain,
    Our journey together has come to an end!
    We'll miss you PA till we meet again.

    Idk I can't compete

    U guys are good at writing
    Ur words are the fire, firefighters are fighting.
    Instead of anger
    It's the pain that u are hiding
    Then when u are calm u noticed
    How much pain it was , it's amazing

    But how is fire damage so amazing

    Because you are letting the fire burn all the old and a chance for it to regrow stronger.
    Sure it's depressing to look at
    But that's still your negative thoughts thinking
    You are to use to the same old shyt
    Not giving u a chance to make the new begining.

    Who knows what the future holds? What matters is I know WHO holds it.

    I recently resigned from my job despite the uncertainties of the pandemic to take a quiet rest.

    I decided to commit my career break to rediscover myself and went back to writing.

    Better in Time

    for the most part,
    I am getting better in time,
    and in a very slow motion.

    No feeling can beat the feeling I feel,
    The moment you rest your head on my shoulder
    While entangling your hands with mine

    Feeling

    I never say I love you because I wouldn't mean it

    I've experienced too much hate to recognize the difference

    I never say I hate you because what would be the point

    You say and hear what you want

    I never tell any of my emotions because you wouldn't understand

    I would be fortuitous

    I never cry where you can see because you love seeing pretty girls cry

    I would be giving you strength

    When I pray I never let you hear

    You would just use it against me

    I never even sleep anymore

    Because even in sleep I never rest in peace

    Showing emotions would be like getting infected with a plague

    I'd be an outcast once again

    Healing would only make the wound wider

    For it would only rip back off

    Fighting the solitude pointless

    I'll always end up alone anyways

    Maybe when I'm in an eternal sleep

    I'll finally be at peace

    Flock

    Do you have faith in the changes of weather
    like a fall breeze takes the leaves to wherever.
    are you having dreams?
    or is it hard to find rest?
    did you take to the streets to fight the wrong peace?
    did you choose to follow the right shepherd?

    there is a scale that sits on the hand of a mist
    balanced between love and abuse
    and the sheep of the heard where all in a stir
    when they told their tales of accuse
    did you choose to follow the right shepherd?

    The sheep were still, sedated by will
    done in the name of their master
    the one with the cain know him by name
    he was a devil dressed as a pastor
    Will you choose to follow the right shepherd?

    THE SURGEON SOJOURN

    ________________________
    Stephanie's hands are shaking in the cold as she walks into the office. It is clear she is in need of something hot to step down the effect of the blizzard outside the walls of the Clinton Welsh International Hospital premises. The Air-Conditioners cannot be turn off for any reason on the insistence of the Hospital's policy hence they provide alternative heating for the staff and patients of the hospital, heating cubicles numbering about eight on every floor of the hospital totalling about one hundred and twenty. Unwilling to go all the way to the other floor and possibly face the same disappointment as she has faced on the ground floor where her office is strategically situated, she decides to take some hot coffee to substitute the heating cubicle but as though it is not her day, she is met by another disappointment. All the variants of coffees served at the hospital at the moment do not appeal to her taste.

    Stephanie's astonishment is brought on by how exactly all other variants are still very much available when she arrives but the one she wants and enjoy finished few seconds before her arrival at the hospital's coffee stand.

    Irked by the situation, she picks up her car keys even though she knows leaving the hospital at that moment might be risky on so many levels-she might have patients waiting for her, she might have an accident under the unfortunate weather, she is not officially on break and she might get queried or worse still relieved of duty if she is found out by the management of the hospital. She would usually do things that strikes everyone as daring and sometimes just plain absurd so when the other staff see her leave the hospital and drive out of the premises, they neither ask no questions nor bother themselves but leave it to the management who have eyes on the entire premises and never miss a move from any staff except of course in the toilet and surely enough they see her leave. The consequences of her actions from the end of the management would come in the evening when she returns or they would allow her the privilege of having a good night and spoil her morning the next day with her letter of 'your services are no longer needed at this hospital' connoting dismissal.

    When she sets out on the journey, it is a horrifying trip driving through the blizzard as visibly is so poor, she can hardly see. She prays so hard to be back at the hospital in one piece but it seems her prayers does not cover her car as while she hits a lot of things that damage her car badly including road blocks, railings and a couple of times, a few road-crossing creatures.

    It takes about a visit to over fifteen stores and twelve hours of driving to make her give up her search and decide to settle for the lesser coffee brand.

    Just as she is driving back to the hospital painfully meandering her way through the thickening weather, she unfortunately and fortunately rams her car into a somewhat inconspicuous store by the corner of the road going unconscious. The storekeeper takes her out of the car and unto the ground to get some air. The storekeeper, Jane Alvin watches her for a few seconds and realizing she has not regained consciousness, decides to give her the kiss of life (Mouth To Mouth Resuscitation).

    It feels awkward to her but there is a life at stake and it is the only option available as there is no one else around in the store at the time as the storekeeper was just reconciling the books in order to leave for home before Stephanie rammed into the store. She succeeds in getting her conscious after about six huff-and-puffs of oxygen. Regaining consciousness, Stephanie asks holding her head while squinting,
    'Whe-Where am I?.....Who are you?....What happened?..'
    'Calm down, darling. One question at a time',Jane Alvin says softly. 'You had an accident'
    'Oh no', Stephanie screams whisperingly as a result of the headache. 'I need to get back to the office immediately'.

    Jane Alvin smiles not with an intent to ridicule Stephanie's predicament but because she wonders why someone would still think of work after such an unwholesome occurrence. She watches Stephanie stagger a little way off before fainting again.

    When Stephanie regains consciousness, she is surprised to see Jane behind the wheel of her SUV and wonders what is going on. Just as she is trying to wrap her aching head around what is going on, they come by the Welsh International Hospital. Jane drives in, screaming for the attention of the staff around. Immediately, a couple of nurses assist her in leading Stephanie into the hospital.

    Having been informed of the accident by Jane , the hospital puts Stephanie to bed-rest for four hours with the help of sedatives in drip form. When she would wake up, her letter of dismissal would sitting on the small mahogany cupboard-table beside her bed just by Jane. Jane hopes and prays that she wakes up strong and healthy.

    'Please, you just have to wake up. From the much I have seen, you are a hardworker and I am sure it devastate your company to have them lose you. I do not know you but it would still hurt to watch a human being die before my very eyes so please stay with us', Jane whispers softly trying so hard to prevent herself from bursting into tears. What Jane does not know is the fact that Stephanie is a staff of the hospital and the letter on the table by her bed effects her termination of appointment with immediate effect.

    After four hours of sleep, Stephanie wakes up from the induced sleep yawning and turning to see Jane, she gives a smile that suggests appreciation of the kind gesture of being by her side all through. Jane returns the smile.

    Sitting up on the bed, Stephanie notices the white envelope on the table by the bed. Confused, she inquires of Jane about the letter. Jane says the letter was brought in by a doctor and he said it looked important.
    'A doctor of this hospital....?', Stephanie asks terrified as she frantically opens the envelope to unveil its content.
    'Yes....Is there....'
    'Oh no...This can't be', Stephanie screams and faints again having read it is a termination of her appointment as a staff of Clinton Welsh Hospital.

    Confused as to what is going on, Jane picks up the letter to read and she is just as shocked but does not faint. Instead she quickly decides to recommend Stephanie for temporary employment immediately she wakes up pending when she would be able to secure another job for herself.

    When Stephanie wakes up, she is skeptical at first about the idea but looking at her letter of dismissal once more, she decides to accept the offer. It seems a blessing in disguise as she seems to enjoy working with Jane surprisingly because asides the fact that it is an interesting job to kill time with while she looks for one that would fit her career as a surgeon, she is home to the best coffee in the region.

    सूरत

    एक सूरत दिखाई देती है जब भी आँख बंद करता हूँ ।

    मुझे चैन नहीं मिलता जब वो सूरत दिखाई पड़ती है ।।
