I Need To Be Me

I wish I could be the person

You always wanted me to be

I wish I could have stayed

And made you happy

But I need to leave

I need to find myself

I need to learn how to fly

Without crashing

I need to be me

What About Now?

During my gap year I have been thinking a lot about how we have stopped living in the moment and how everyone has become so busy with life that they have stopped appreciating life and the little things that make life amazing. People have stopped just relaxing and doing literally nothing for a while to rejuvenate. I mean when I first started the gap year it just felt so oddly wrong to do nothing and relax. I felt like there was something else I should be doing. But now that I have been relaxing for a while now and only doing things I enjoy and want to do it feels amazing. Not just psychologically but physically too!

We live such a fast life these days that from when we’re about three we are on the go. First with school then with college and then with work. We always say “I’ll just relax when I retire, I’ll just pursue my hobbies later” but how sure are we that we will get time to do anything in the future? Nobody knows what the future holds for us. We are so used to procrastinating the things that should be our priority to do things that should be our last concern. We have become so caught up with making money, technology, socializing and work that we have forgotten how important it is to make time for ourselves.

If we want to start to change this pattern that is beginning to characterize our society we need to start changing ourselves and fast. We need to start changing the way we are raising our children and we need to emphasize to them that the most important thing in the world is not money or even education, the most important thing is to follow your dreams and live for yourself. If we start changing our ways now maybe the next generation will do even better than us and they will be the change that we so desperately need.

I want to conclude this by saying that I challenge you today to do something that you’ve always wanted to do ever since you were a child whether it’s learn an instrument or write a book. Do something that you are truly passionate about but have procrastinated doing!

My collaborator for the post, Mukund Pathak, wrote a wonderful poem about the above!

Sing with me the song of joy
And live life as  newer before
      You’ll start loving your life
       And all your tears will wipe
     And the melody will reside in your heart
     And bliss will be in your beats
     You’ll forget all your pain
      Life will be simple and plain
    And you’ll feel your presence
    And life will be worth living
    Just sing with me and see the change
     Beauty of life you’ll know …
I really hope you guys liked this post and please don’t forget to check out Mukund’s blog!!!

Him

His piercing grey eyes

Find me from across the room

They make me long for the moment

When his lips will finally meet mine

His tender hands

And strong arms

Make me long for their touch

There’s a hint of the slightest smile

On his full lips

And I know the time has come

For him to finally be mine

Thing To Do During Your Gap Year

As a lot of you know I decided to take a gap year before going to university and so I decided to share some of the things you can do during your gap year to make it more fun:

Travel- You can finally see all the places you’ve always wanted to see during your gap year. You can choose to travel to different countries and stay there for a while or you can decide to explore your own country and go on a fun road trip. You can also finally do things like sky diving, bungee jumping or maybe just relax by the beach.

Read- You can finally read all the classic books everyone is always talking so highly about that you pretend to have read anyway. You can cross out all the books you had on your book bucket list!

Relax- Think about it when was the last time you relaxed? Like really relaxed without having literally anything to do? Well this can be a couple of months of relaxing like that!

Listen- Listen to music. Listen to the sounds outside your windows. Listen to the people around you. Most importantly listen to yourself. Think about what you really want. Listen.

Create- Create a blog. Start a YouTube channel. Start a tumblr page. Start a Pinterest page. Just do something creative and fun with your time!

Write- Write anything you want! Write some poetry, lyrics, a story or just anything that’s been on your mind because you will never have this much free time ever again.

Have fun- Do some stuff you’ve always wanted to do that you never had time for before like learning something new like an instrument or a new language! This is the perfect time to do this!

Research- You have an advantage over people who have already gone off to university- you have time. Make sure you do lots of research on what university you want to go to so you go to something that’s perfect for you! Plus you have time to think about what classes you want to take too!

She Wept

She wept

For the lovers who promised forever

But stayed never

She wept

For the friends

Who soon became distant memories

She wept

For the injustice in the world

Targeted towards the innocent

She wept

For the dreams she saw so clearly

But knew she would never achieve

She wept

For the life she had been promised

But was slowly stolen from her

She wept

For the creativity she had been born with

That had been destroyed by uniformity

She wept

For the person she had once been

That no longer existed
