I feel suffocated. Trapped.
They say the birds are chirping. No, it is the cardinal singing a death song.
I cannot see. Everything’s black, so black. Oh no, not black, it is dark. But what’s the difference between dark and black, you ask.
The blind one doesn’t see black, but knows and feels what darkness is.
A rag is tied around my mouth. I can feel it, but I can’t see it. Why can’t I see it?!
My hands are sore, they are tied behind. With a rope. Isn’t it the same rope with which you strangled my dreams, your dreams?
Dried vines wrap around my body. Trapping me further. Suffocating me….
It is getting hard to breathe now. I– stop– crushing– my drea–!
There are many people, who are not able to fulfill their dreams, because of the pressure of society, and other factors which keep them trapped inside.
To all those people who feel fearful and hesitant to achieve what they want, because they are afraid as to what the society might say – don’t give the society the power to control your dreams. They are your dreams, your fight and your life. The journey may be difficult, but if you really want to achieve your dreams, do it regardless of what others might think. Because people will always find something to say. That’s how they are.
अगर कोई चीज़ पूरी शिद्दत से चाहो, तो पूरी क़ायनात आपको उससे मिलाने की साज़िश में लग जाती है।SRK, Om Shanti Om (Famous Bollywood dialogue)
Translation: If you desire something from deep inside, the entire universe conspires to help you get it.
