I had written this a long while ago and didn’t plan on publishing it. I reread it while flipping through my phone’s notes and it made me smile and i thought, “why not?” It gives me ‘Our Song’ vibes 🙂 and also because no one reads it anyway lol
In winter, on a tuesday night I was travelling in a train No hint of light I was sleeping on a rigid berth The mattress was torn And the corners, full of girth Oh! I totally hated it there Didn’t sleep all night So much heat! I couldn’t bear I just wanted to get off the train Walk with the wind in my face And my hair drenched in rain As soon as i got off the train And i tried to step on the ice I froze from my toe to my brain I was helpless, i couldn’t stand precise It was so cold and there was no hearth The train was gone and i missed the berth
After waking up from bed The sun came out of its hiding Asked me, “Why are your eyes red?” Have you been crying? I declined “Something had gotten into my eye I rubbed pretty hard It went away forever Bequeathing a mark”
Be careful who you pretend to be You might forget who you really are Show the true yourself to the world you see Not everyone will want you to play a guitar
It’s okay if you don’t fit in the coolest group You will definitely get the desired limelight But there will always be a loophole Cuz you will never get the desired delight.
Human nature is so diverse You can be funny or strict or any other kind Why then stick to a particular verse Which people thought was the perfect design?
You can wear a mask and run away from truth But mind you dear human wit Truth is a pup running behind your foot Who will stop running if you face it!
Your imperfections are totally wonderful They will help you make it through Cuz they make you perfect for someone Yes, they do!
And now my dear humans I would like to ask Don’t you think you are better Without a mask?
God purposefully made us all different from each other and all of us have different roles to play in the society but if we pretend to be someone whom we aren’t and imitate others just to fit in, the beautiful versitality of human behaviour will be lost.
We must accept each other and most importantly ourselves as who we are and become the best version of it, the world will definitely become a better place to live in!
You said, I was always on the wrong I always chose the bitter song I didn’t even have a count of my mistakes Cuz I knew numbers few and the list was so long!
I didn’t show up until the cafe closed I didn’t even smile when you posed I was a total maniac Bit you with my coldness right when it snowed
There were a 100 times when I lied Stung you with pines on my hide You were totally tired of my tantrums And that no one could ever be by my side
I wrecked you, ruined your life I couldn’t make it through, chose the wrong stride I broke something as precious as you I pierced your heart with a knife.
But, you know what? I tried! I tried hard!! I did think before playing each card But it still didn’t work out Probably you didn’t work just as hard
Accepted ! I wasn’t worth it! But you didn’t necessarily have to say it You could’ve stayed shut, given me time! For all I know, you had greater wit.
In me, a 100 wrongs you found Even at times I was sure I was profound But you didn’t even give a single thought That it could have been the other way round!
So buddy, bottom line – If you always keep counting the other person’s mistakes and blame someone else for everything that is going wrong, you will only break hearts, try to consider your own actions and understand other people’s problems as well! Only then will any of your relations with people be meaningful. TPWK!!!
