For old times’ sake I did,
juttered out the ravenous calm
in hopes of sanity,
O pull me up!
For I’m sinking in deep and deep.
A no-ending black hole, raws and all
scraping isn’t worrisome, no more,
plummeting a ten times glory, it seem,
this path down the sucker with an abhorous zeal
not ‘ye all judgemental; but for thyself
a hoarder of pain looked up for one last time-
bring me up not this hellhole;
screams won’t be so bad anyway
I repent, not for the sins, but
for thyself endurement.
You don’t need anything else when you have perseverance. Come what may, you are ready to fight against anything, even when all the circumstances go wrong.
That fire to not give up, to move forward, to push everything else out of way, irrespective of personal hurdles – victory such is much sweeter that way.
Life is full of surprises and we often surprise ourselves when faced with challenging situations. I was put in one such situation and my decision surprised and terrified me. It was the excitement filled terror that took over me!
I’m planning to leave to full time job as an Engineer to do something that I love the most – to write!
Yes! I’m leaving my high paid job in a global multi million dollar group to pursue my passion.
When I think about it, writing has always been a part of life. Time and again, I go back to writing. But, due to the ‘mainstream’ path that the Indian society considers, my dreams of becoming a writer was buried.
I kept it just as hobby, something to go back to at the end of the day.
But what happens when those nights of writing excites you more?
What if you catch yourself dreaming about sentences and content during your day job?
What do you do when all you want to badly do is write an article on that fresh thought you got, immediately, like right now in middle of the day job?
It’s when you realize that enough is enough. I am going to take this decision.
I have found my love.
Though it scares me and sometimes pains me physically to think about all the obstacles I have to face, I’m ready to give it a try because that’s how badly I want it. I really believe that my passion will win at the end and I’m ready to do all it takes.
P.S: I’m now seeking any freelance or full-time assignments or jobs as a content writer or editor. To see my samples, check out the link – my writings. If you need any freelance articles or come to know of any opportunities please do contact me at email@example.com

It is a common opinion that situations brings out the true nature of the person, and sometimes those true revelations can be for the good too.
If we look with a positive note over a painful situation, dire conditions can unravel the side of a person which is shocking yet pleasing – the good side.
We have seen many people in our life and deemed them as bad by just scraping through the surface of their character.
What if it’s all a facade for some reason and when you peel that rough surface of the pineapple, you could enjoy the sweet, juicy portion inside?
Wouldn’t it be wonderful, if worse is for good?
It is our effort, no matter what the result of it is. Others’ opinions doesn’t matter.
If you are true to yourself and feel complete satisfaction without an iota of regret, then that is what you need to keep on moving.
What people think of your efforts is none of your business, even if people judge you when it is none of their business.
You do not need others to validate your efforts.
Tap on your own shoulder and move on with your head held high.
The highest level of maturity is when you realize that it is more important to make yourself feel satisfied, make yourself feel happy instead of pleasing others.
The contentment when you try to do things for your own happiness, instead of considering the judgement of others or waiting for others to do things for your happiness, is when you can feel pure liberation.
How do we define Freedom?
Well, you may come up with multiple perspectives and explanations to define freedom, but, according to me, there is no particular universal form of Freedom, just like Freedom itself.
But when freedom is bounded by various criteria, then it is actually not freedom.
The boundary of the society, or family, or oneself must not influence our freedom. There is no term such as Restriction which is associated with Freedom. If it is, then we are probably fooling ourselves into thinking that we have the Freedom.
For example, if you think you have or want to have Freedom to eat whatever you want, then nothing should stop you! Not the place, not the people around you, not even the food itself!
If you think you enjoy Freedom, then nothing should influence it. That’s when you enjoy total Freedom and that feeling of having Freedom is incomparable to anything else.
