When For The World You are Dead.

Have you ever noticed a dead leaf falling? Have you ever noticed it lying there silent, moving only when the wind touches it or the world passes by?

Always goes unnoticed, doesn't it? Does not pass as our mere thought even. 

It does. It will. Only you have to be the dead leaf. Only when you go completely unnoticed to the world,  do you realize the pain of ignorance. Only when your emotions...feelings.....and the whole you are totally ignored by the world do you understand....understand who you thought you were to the people and who you really are now to them. 

But you live, you are very much living...not alive....but surviving to yourself. You eat, sleep, work, play and watch the world go by, watch the 'once your close' people pass by, move on in their lives and here you are merely surviving, thinking where exactly you landed yourself up! Who exactly is bothered about you? Who exactly feels your pain but looks through you.

Do they have the time? 

You never realize your worth not when the whole world is watching you and you have too many people who care for you and love you. You take them for granted. You know they will always be there in your life. You know there will never come a day when people will say Goodbye. 

You know there is something called 'forever'.

And then.....

They go away. They don't need you any more. You are over for them. You are their past. It's that moment when for the world you are dead. The loved ones you once loved, cared for and desired, slip away from your grasp, leaving behind vivid memories to live with. 

It is then you realize your worth, who you really are and what you want to be. You realize that it's not the people who make you but you who makes yourself. No one has the power to make you, no one has the power to deny you. You, you and only you have the right and power to become what you wanted to be or not to be. 

When for the world you are dead, you give yourself a new beginning. You give yourself a new sunrise. When for the world you are no one anymore, you break yourself free from the old bonding for a whole new chapter. 

Love is important, feeling important to people is necessary. But pain and shun are even more important because it is only the negativity of these feelings that help you know yourself. 

They help take you from one journey to another slowly and painfully to give you a beautiful life. A life you have only dreamed of.

Are You Giving Up?

"The minute you think of giving up, think of the reason why you held on for so long"

Never give up on something that you have always believed in. 

They tell you to stop, they say that you are not worthy enough. They say you can't do it. Well, I don't really blame them who say it. If you don't believe in yourself, trust me, no one will do it for you. 

So, what's your reason for giving up? You can't walk anymore? You are crippled with fear of what they will say? Too crippled to run? Are you lost? What is it! 

They say you are not worthy of her, so you leave her. They say you are not worthy of your job, so you resign. They say you are not worthy of playing so you lose the game. They say you are not worthy of living so you start surviving. They say you are not worthy of life, so you quit living. 

So, what is that made you hold on for so long? Why didn't you die the day your senses told you that you are good-for-nothing? What is it that kept you going? It's you who needs to dream, who needs to live, who needs to prove that you are one in a million. 

You don't really need to run fast or compete with others. Competing with yourself is enough. Running is enough. Go ahead and do it, even though there might be voices calling you back. Go ahead and achieve what you have always wanted to, in life, even though there might be invisible threads trying to hold you back....

Go ahead and finish what you are asked not to. Love the one you are forbidden to. Enjoy things that you are deprived of. And love yourself for being who you are....

Remember it is only you who can stop you from dreaming. And it's only you who can stop yourself from giving up. Make yourself an EXCEPTION because this world has too many people who give up and too few who have never learned to 'call it quits'.
