A perfect world

A perfect world

A perfect world

Have you ever thought about what it would feel like to live in a perfect world? If you have I am sure that you had a whole list of conditions the world would have to live up to.  Because no matter how hard you might try, your own preferences will sneak into what you deem perfect. The issue with that is that your definition of perfect might be completely different from the next person. And he or she would also be living in their perfect world. Which means that your worlds would collide at some point.

Will we ever get to A perfect world?

That is why I always try to keep my definition of a perfect world to the basic necessities. The core essentials this world would need to function at a higher level. And to be quite frank, my definitions of a perfect world are very possible if only the right people would get on board. The issue is that this change would require certain sacrifices of the would be rich. And the rich NEVER like sacrificing anything that requires the loss of money. And this world is so hung up on money that it tends to dismiss everything else in search of it.

I wanted to show that this world does need some cleaning up. Wanted to tell a side of the story you wouldn’t often hear and deliver it in a way that might actually resonate with you. I do have to say that I am stuck on dreaming for a better world. Have a watch to hear what I am trying to say:

My soul has always been old

My soul has always been old

Have you ever had someone tell you “ you have an old soul”? I have on more than one occasion. And that got me thinking as to what that really means. For some, it might mean that you are wise beyond your years. Or you like things that don’t fit your age group. To me, my soul has always been old due to the fact that when I learned about who I am, I was already pretty scarred up.

Life tends to beat you down till you mature. And with me, life was pretty quick to hand out blows to ensure my eyes would see the world for what it is. My soul has been taking hits far before I was old enough to understand self.

My soul has always been old because it dealt with everything I couldn’t.

This poem was based on the concept of “what if your soul was a person inside of you?” And what if that exact same person grew up without any help from anyone but you? So all those lies you told yourself, actually hurt your soul. The acts you did thinking that no one would realize, your soul caught and had to deal with.

Those emotions and memories you repressed in the hope that they would fade away, would sit next to your soul and take their turns beating him. Your soul is going through hell because of your actions.  Aging a lot faster than your simple body and when you actually see your soul for the first time it will reflect all the time it spends in your mind all alone. That’s why when I saw my soul for the first time it was old. My soul has always been old.

A good conversation

A good conversation

A good conversation

So I live in a world where I tend to be alone a lot. It’s the same as yours but the difference is I try to be alone. Because I have realized that there aren’t a lot of people in this world with whom you can have a good conversation. When I come across a good conversation I am more than ecstatic because I get the chance to learn something new.

A chance to hear stories I’ve never heard before. Step into a completely different world of experience that will be laid out in front of me and explained. Having a good conversation is like finding a piece of gold that you can learn from and use in your everyday life.

A good conversation is hard to find

The issue I have is that I tend to have these great conversations that lead to a very interesting place. A place where romantic feelings overflow into a stream of possibilities I didn’t anticipate. I just love learning about people and finding out what makes them tick. The thing is, it seems that when people show you what makes them tick, it makes them a bit sentimental. Because being open and honest with someone takes a lot of courage, and when you are open and honest and that person doesn’t run away it means a lot.

Having someone in your corner who listens to you and values your opinion rather than your body means a lot. Or at least that’s what it feels like. But for me, I love talking to people and finding out stuff I never knew. And then letting the conversation die out after a few months pass by.

Have a look at this spoken word poem I did to see exactly what I mean.

Poetry Submission: NOTHING MUCH FOR MINORS

NOTHING MUCH FOR MINORS

Minors are those less than eighteen,
As they don’t have knowledge in keen.

They don’t have a driving licence,
As don’t have driving sense.

Minors are given just pen and page,
Their life is not more than a cage.

Holiday is not given even on sundays,
As their age is negligible for fundays.

Parents are worried not to get blame,
From minors they just want their fame.

Circumstances are same for every minor,
Parents are just their life designer.

-Sahaj Sabharwal.
-Chowk Chabutra,
-Jammu.

I have decided to add Poetry Submission to my categories of posts. This was a beautiful poem by Sahaj Sabharwal who deserves some light being shed on her. If you feel like your poetry would benefit from being on my website please let me know and I will post it up for you. I am still trying to be a hub for all poetry. The Poetry Submission for this week is in. Hope you enjoy.

Procrastination is a defense mechanism

Procrastination is a defense mechanism

Procrastination is a defense mechanism

When I heard “procrastination is a defense mechanism” I sat down and gave it some thought. Because I always figured that avoiding doing something was just because you didn’t want to do it. But I never really thought about the reasoning behind why I didn’t didn’t want to do something. I just figured that motivation had ups and downs.

But if I take “procrastination is a defense mechanism” as a frame to my actions, I can get a totally different perspective. Perhaps the fear of failure is bigger than the drive to succeed. And their sizes fluctuate so from time to time I will want to move forward and other times I will want to stand still.

Procrastination is a defense mechanism or is it?

My logic then also becomes an excuse. Because if you take actions that don’t bring forth any results, you will stop said actions. It’s only logical to do so. But true drive forces you to keep going even if the results you want don’t come in the way you want them to. The fear of the results never coming can deter me for a small period of time but I will get back on my grind.

So being stubborn helps me to fight my fear. I am more scared of being stuck in routine than I am of failing. But I do get tired of failing, so I do believe you need some time to rest up before you get back in it. To me, that’s not procrastinating its just resting up before standing up.

But make sure you fell first before you start resting. Don’t just start resting before even taking a step towards your goal. Do you agree with that? Watch the full spoken word poem here:

Motivation 101 Keep going

Motivation 101 Keep going

Motivation 101 Keep going

The key phrase for motivation 101 keep going is You can do it. There is this invisible wall keeping you from your dreams. What if I told you that this invisible wall was invisible because it wasn’t there. It was nothing more than your own imagination and the only thing really stopping you is your fear of said wall.

A lot of people let that fear stop them from even verifying if the wall is really there. Never let the fear of a wall you haven’t verified keep you from reaching your goals. Take that first step towards your dream. Then take another after that. Slowly build up your steps till you finally realize that this wall people kept telling you about is nothing more than a myth.

Motivation 101 Keep going because you have to.

And the growth you went through to get this far is something worth more than a simple goal. And if there ever is an obstacle in your way, I promise you that its nothing more than your own shadow telling you that the light is too bright. Or perhaps you realize that the form and shape of your goal aren’t what you want it to be. And the panic from that realization makes you not want to get any closer. Or perhaps you realize that the number of steps you need to take will ask for more than you are willing to sacrifice.

If that is the case … you never wanted it bad enough to begin it. You never really desired it because if your goal is all you ever wanted than nothing is too precious to be left behind. Excuses are for the weak and those who cherish comfort over success.

So keep going and reach that goal you set. This was my class “motivation 101 keep going” now watch the spoken word poetry video to get the full blast of what I’m saying:

I hate myself

I hate myself

I hate myself

This world is a very dark place filled with a lot of negativity and misplaced anger. All of this negative energy tends to swirl around goodness. And some people tend to get lost in the dark. They tend to lose themselves in the dark and all the negativity. Till they reach a point where they say “I hate myself”.

There are several ways the negativity touches people. Some get depressed, others go through an eating disorder. There are more mental diseases than I dare mention in this post. The one I was afflicted with was depression. Depression is a disease that follows you around relentlessly until it finally breaks you. Some try to dilute the stress of depression with drugs. Others try to fight it with their own powers. I belong to the latter and I try to incorporate the depression into my life as best I can.

I hate myself because I am not who I want to be.

But it still trickles into my life in a way that I can’t control it. And I hate that about myself. Because my self-worth is tied to who I am. And who I am is then linked to my appearance. And trying to control my appearance is one hell of a task. A lot of people go through this because they feel that their looks are what defines them to the world.

So they want to control the definition. Fasting, throwing up, extreme exercise, steroids, protein shakes and a lot more. All of these and a lot more are mere tools people use in their attempt to control their appearance. They want to turn “I hate myself” into “I love myself” but they always forget that loving yourself should come from within and not be based on what you look like.

Because looks fade. This is my spoken word attempt to show you what it feels like to deal with all of this as I go through life.

The power of words

The power of words

The power of words

People often forget the power of words. This world revolves around the power of words. Be they on paper, spoken or digitally, words are a driving force behind most things. The aspect I wanted to address with this spoken word poem was the power of words in a day to day situation. In any relationship there are ups and downs. Moments filled with joy and happiness and others filled with strife and anger.

Words have the tendency to fly out a bit faster and bit more “spicy” when spoken in anger. Because you want to react in a way that hurts the other party in an equal measure to how you have been hurt. The power of words is that when you say them they are out there and they don’t disappear even after your emotions have calmed down.

Never forget The power of words.

“I hate you” or “I hope you die” are the ones that when thrown out have no way of making their way back into nothingness. Teenagers often forget this fact and throw these words around as if they are nothing more than empty words that have no impact. But I am here to tell you that your words do have an impact. Sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt you. That’s a concept a lot of people try to cling to. Knowing full well that it’s not true.

Bullying and spewing hatred is something that lasts a lot longer than a hit to the face. Pain fades over time but emotional scars tend to fester the longer you leave them. A beautiful world is one where people respect the power of their own words. And take the consequences of their words as they are instead of their own romantic view of it.

Double Standard

Double Standard

Double Standard

There is this thing when it comes to artists that are very interesting. It’s the concept of people liking an artist only when they are complete strangers to them. People have this tendency to see the artists close to them as nothing but mere hobbyists. Which is ok in a way, but the issue is that people tend to treat their artist/friend as a secondary artist who doesn’t need support.

Because well, they aren’t famous. That is the only difference between the unknown and the known. Often times the friend/artist has some amazing content but because they aren’t famous they don’t get that share. They don’t get that like. Now mind you, this is also due to the algorithm of a lot of websites that host their content.

There is a Double Standard in Art

Those websites prefer to “push” already famous content. And those two factors combined to create the Double standard I am talking about. People will often only share what has already been shared, like what has already been liked. Not even considering the fact that their friend/artist needs those likes and shares as well.

I have been an artist for a long time now and I can tell you from my own personal experiences that artists like me get no “love”. I get a few likes, rarely a comment and I would have to instruct people to share. Which is all very interesting because everyone “loves” my art … or so they say. But writers like me have to get their support from strangers. And that’s where you come in … so thank you for the support.

Take your time

Take your time

Take your time

I have heard this said more than a few times. And. I’ve always thought it was an interesting saying. Because time at the end of the day isn’t a concept you can actually take a hold of. But what if we used a bit of imagination and created a world where time was something you could take a hold of. Then someone saying take your time would make actual sense.

With this poem, I tried to create a library where all your expectations, experiences and thoughts were translated into books. And those books were, of course, your responsibility. You would have to do your very best to make sure the books are worth reading.

Take your time as if it was on a shelf.

You would also be responsible for who takes out the books as the librarian. So what if I then told you to take your time. Would you try to create a new book with your definition of time? Or would you build an entirely new wing where you put all the valuable moments in your life and then take that as your time?

For me, I would create a book where I put in all my achievements and define that as my time. Because in my mind the value of time is often defined as what is achieved within said time. I all ways believe that results are the key to reaching your dreams. So control the content of your books and make sure that your bookshelves are filled with quality all the way through.

If you liked my spoken word poem about the saying “take your time” then I am sure you will love my new book called Pulse. And don’t forget to subscribe to my channel on YouTube for the latest updates. Thanks for reading have a good day.
