Crave for creativity

The crave for creativity intensifies

when one realisesΒ its meditative powers

and its intoxication for peace

once the life is consumed in the mundane affairs

to save the roof over the head and the rice on the plate

but how could we forget that creativity is the bread and butter

for a life that is fulfilling

one that makes the mundane seem enlightening

one that turns the profane to sacred…

one that is worth living

I’ll be okay

Notice that bit of surprise popping in each word I’ve said, the smile that sparkles a galaxy in my eyes, boy I could speak a million diamonds worth of love now, for this one moment that seems magical, extraordinary, because the norm ceases to exist, and for once I can believe that

I’ll be okay.

Lost and found and lost

Each day, we work ourselves into a deep grave of anomie, detached from our authentic selves who once found meaning but lost it as we lost ourselves, we live a pseudo life where humility becomes burdensome, where the only silver lining are the notes in your wallet, a means and end of itself, we’re all simply zombies living paycheck to paycheck, letting the ball roll into someone else’s court, yet they say this is the reality you cannot escape five days in a week,

you’re granted forty-eight hours to find yourself, only to lose it again at 9am the next morning.
