The Voices - Catalyst in pursuing the Dream

Mona Roy

I tried hard,really trust me!
I tried hard to not listen to anything...
Tried hard to close all the doors and all the windows around me...
Tried hard not to hear the bubbles in the water...
Tried hard not to hear the leaves talking, the wind whistling, the snow glistening...
Tried hard not to hear the dawn, the sunset or the sunrise...
But the voices, the voices inside? Damn I couldn't beat it!

They said I am right,
I am right if I wanna scream,
I am right if I wanna cry,
I am right if I wanna laugh and I am right if I wanna be right
And what did I know?? I knew, I was wrong...

They said feel the life to its deepest,
Touch the corals and reefs, and fly high in the skies...
Close your eyes and know yourself, till you could hear the blood running, the heartbeats laughing and the brain smirking...

They said, your innocense is lost,
Life is counting on your internal clock...
Tick tock Tick tock Tick tock...

They said stop thinking,
Does it matter? Does it really matter when you are judged every nanoseconds,
Is it really important to know whose aroma will your senses be persuaded to?
Who would be longing for you at the day end, or even if there is someone like that!

In all the chaos around, know the beauty in the wounded work of art...

They said, you are beautiful but torn,
Camouflaged by your insecurities, blinded by it all.

They said, let your heart be your guide,
Lose that frown from your brow, leave it all in the past.

They said, they said it again, again and again and again, and I guess this was the final one...
They said, Either be happy or be sad
dont make yourself hollow,who can feel nothing...
Screw yourself, go high but atleast act like a living being..
Go up to the sky and drop down from there but atleast lift up yourself...
Give smiles, Give scars, give yourself wounds, you are lost and you need to be found...

They said, and this time it was loud...
They said,
For a while, take pain and fill your emptiness...
You have an existence, make us believe it again...!!!
