Spread some smiles. Trying to overlook the lies. Fickle minds having hearts even lighter than a feather. They twists and turn in whichever direction the wind blows stronger, trying to support whoever they perceive to be stronger; and then change sides in a split second. Naïve!
Sparkles of rainbow paint my eyes. The ups and downs of varied colours, playing peek-a-boo. The sunshine: an overdose at times. With fluffy clouds covering it up once in while, tries to bring a balance between rays and lies.
Sparkles, sunshine, gold dust, rain: A little bit of everything, “life” they say. Complaints I’ve received and given; some legit, some not so really. Still learning the paths and grooves of life. Never ending process of adapting and adopting the paths that have already been traversed by some, other lanes yet to be discovered and a few more roads to carve and create!
Smile more importantly when the roads become intricate like a maze. I keep going round n round. How does one exit? Some roads are narrow, almost suffocating me with tears and emotions and some are so wide and open I can feel a splash of paradise, but how to reach eternity?
I collect some flowers that wave at me, some thorns I remove and others I allow to pierce me. It bleeds a little, but it’ll heal anyway. The maze! Damn! It bleeds even after crossing many roads ahead. It bleeds even when I just think about it. Why? It bleeds maybe because it never healed? I don’t seem to enjoy this maze sometimes. Where’s the sunshine, sparkles, gold dust and rain?!
The sun plays peek-a-boo through the trees and leaves. The stars shine at the same time too. How weird! How can the sun and stars be out together? They wink at me..sarcasm maybe? The overprotective clouds cover them all!
And I continue to move around the maze. One step forward, four steps backward. Where’s the finish line Oh Allah? I want my soul to dance with the clouds. I want the sparkles to lighten up my heart. I want the scars to get scared and leave me. Forever.
I wont stop till I finish the race because after the battle is won, there would be no other war to fight ever again. Eternal bliss is all that shall remain. Sparkles. Gold dust. Sunshine. Rain. A Little bit of sun maybe, but this time it shall welcome me!
