So yeah…yesterday I was getting really bored and I felt like I needed some actual exercise (till yesterday, walks from the couch till the fridge are counted as exercise to me)…But I didn’t WANT to get out of my home.
I really didn’t.
What if I trip and fall while climbing down the stairs? Fracture an arm? Crack my skull? Or worse, what if the neighbors see me falling?! Oh no…
So…like a snail I inhabited the sofa till my mom kicked me out of the home. ‘Get out for some sunshine at least! Always staying indoors like a vampire…’ She tutted.
I am more of a witch-person. A Ginny-Weasley-like witch, in fact. I could use the Bat-Bogey Hex right now and show how much of a pure-blood I am…but unfortunately, Hogwarts does’t allow underage witches and wizards to use magic outside school….
Anyway, back to the topic, I went for a walk outside, ended up challenging my brother for a badminton match and is now struggling with a sprained ankle….
Returning from school
drenched form head to toe in rain and sand
Eating Lollipops and candies
while sheltering under car sheds
Loitering in the school campus
during the dreaded math class
Bunking classes for a day
of excitement and joy at big fairs
Merry-go-round and giant wheel,
accompanied by cotton candies,
Ice pops, balloons and chocolates,
Tons of friends and tons of fun
days of delight, no regret in life
Living life like meant to be…
The earth is boiling under the sun’s blazing heat. Thousands are suffering from heat strokes and sun burns everyday. Many of this is turning fatal.
And its all because of us. Us.
It was all our fault that we decided to go behind the comforts and ease of living, while the thoughts of environment faded in our hearts.
We decided to poison the air and kill fellow plants and trees, making god’s gift, rain, to disappear from the face of the earth. We did.
Now no water. So no agriculture. No livelihood for farmers. Wouldn’t that mean no food to us? Can we not see what we’re headed to?
And now what?
The Ozone’s gotten holes. The sunlight falls on us directly. So what do we do?
Go inside our home, switch on A/C, cooler and fan, have some ice cream and chilled soda, use sun screen lotions, drink water with ice cubes in it, play in water parks and just do NOT CARE ABOUT THE EARTH.
How can we be so heartless?
Happiness lies in believing in yourself.
Never give less than your best,
It matters not if you win or lose
Because life isn’t winning or losing
Its about living.
The sun setting deep said me there was no use holding
I had to let go
I had to forget it all
I have to move ahead and
stomp my bad past
to embrace my future…
But I really could’t
as those tears flooded,
I know I have to
But sadly I can’t
I don’t think I can
Gloomy, are the streets,
with the fearing night creeping on them
Slowly emerge a couple of glowing orbs
The innocent eyes of a child in rags
glowing with sadness and despair
Sunken cheeks and pale, pale face
questioning why this stake
Why this stake
Why this stake
