Do it while you can

“Do it while you can

for time never promises;

only what you create in the present does

Do it while you can,

for the sweetness of your reward will be tenfold the sleepless nights

and every ounce of sweat, tears, blood, and energy that you provided

Do everything your heart beats for,

for time is finite, and one’s desires entail commitment

You have to be assiduous and persistent, in order for you to win the heart of the Universe

Fall one time, get up, fall two times, get up on your feet again

rest on the ground as long as you will, but never decide to let go of your passion

like a rope you firmly held onto and let go off, only because it bruised your hands

Do it while you can, for you can undoubtedly earn what you dream for

because no matter how big and unattainable your dreams may be in your eyes

you will always be bigger.”

-Samavia.

About Dreams

“That which is dreamed can never be lost, can never be undreamed.” – Neil Gaiman It was a dark and stormy night. No, I’m just kidding. But it was night though. A cold, winter night. You know, the air is so cold, it rubs like sandpaper against your throat. You can feel it going down […]

Body dysmorphia: Part two.

“Listen, you beautiful person

If in case you’re suffering from the pain of not feeling physically appealing

I’m there for you.

I’m there for you in every shape and form.

It’s okay for you to suffer, it’s not your fault in any way

It’s not selfish of you to want to know what you truly look like

It’s not selfish of you to want to feel attractive

Most of all, it’s not selfish of you to be prone to any kind of suffering, any kind of mental issues

It’s never selfish to be human.

If and when people attempt to take away your right to be real, don’t allow them to

If people attempt to alienate you by making you feel guilty, dont’ be afraid to let go of them;

I’m not sure if these cliché platitudes will help you or not, but at least you must know you’re never alone.”

-Samavia.

To be continued! To find more sense in this poem, read the previous part as well. Thank you.

Body Dysmorphia: Part one.

“Body dysmorphia,

A struggle that is hard to battle with each day

It’s like looking at yourself in the mirror and not being able to see

what a glorious view you are

To be unable to see the way your eyes shine

like a fracture in the dark night sky

giving someone hope

leaving someone awestruck and smitten during the process

It’s like not being able to see what a charismatic smile you have

How it lights up your entire face like a ray of sunshine

falling onto blooming sunflowers and buttercups

It’s like not being able to see how much beauty your body offers to the eyes of various people

A person with body dysmorphia does not see any of it

They cannot see any of it.

A person with body dysmorphia firmly believes in the following words:

Ugly, overweight, mediocre-looking, unattractive, unappealing

so on and so forth

Not many can see the pain hidden behind the thin smiles of the sufferers

Many find it impossible to deal with it in the next five minutes or so

and yet they survive with the demon inside their brain for hours,days, weeks,months,years,

decades.

This demon inside of their brain makes them believe they are disastrously unappealing to look at

The pain is difficult to comprehend for a lot of people,

and some worsen it for the sufferers

If only there was something I had to say to these strong body dysmorphic people….

Wait, I do.”

Music to my ears

” Music, every tune of it calms down the unsteady tides of my seas

just like the Sun and  Moon do,

but it can make them rise and cause tsunamis too, depending on every tune and note

The simple yet soothing chords of an acoustic guitar being played on a cruise,  a gleeful night

make me feel connected to the soul of Milky Way

whilst the lustrous surface of the sea-water reflects the glorious full moon’s light

The heavy and intense guitar riffs & solos make my soul feel connected to the heart of the Universe, what more can I say?

Music is a medium that connects one to the endless realms of the cosmic totality, a wormhole indeed.”

Colors.

A piece of writing written by me, and dedicated to one of my greatest inspirations- generally in every aspect, and specifically in the pursuit of writing: Ezza Naveed Irfan!! Make sure to check out her blog: @WalkingOnWonder.

“What’s your favorite color?” “Oh, I don’t have a favorite; I love and appreciate all colors. I love the color black out there in the beautiful realms of the universe that’s as dark as ink. I love the color white, for it reminds me of the optimistic and seemingly unstoppable ‘sparkle’ of each star in the nightsky, and the ghostly glow of the moon. I love the neon blue color outline which you can see around the moon on a specially dark night, just when you focus hard enough. I love the ruby red richness of the nebulas situated in the heavens, and all the different shades of purple & pink that accentuate their appearance. You can say that every color related to the cosmic world and it’s wonders is my favorite. You can also say that every color found on this terrestrial planet that we strive on is undoubtedly my favorite too. For example, I love the soft lilac blue sky that you see every morning, that is if you wake up as early as the rise of the sun. I love all the shades and colors that the sun, a blinding beauty itself, forms on the sky during different times of the day. I love the peachy and fiery orange that forms around dusk, just when the sun bids farewell to the inhabitants of planet Earth, whilst giving the clouds around the exact same bright and fire-like pigment. Oh, and how can I forget the color green? A color that so many of us take for granted, and even despise, deeming it as boring ! Those are the very same people, who enjoy having rich green trees that stand tall and mighty in their midst, and make them feel alive. Conclusion: every color is my absolute favorite.”

Exemption from your personal hells

When I had nothing to lose, I had everything. When I stopped being who I am, I found myself.”
― Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes.

*Note: The following may not be applicable to all people, because everyone has had a different past, that is… a rough past. A rough childhood. Of course, innumerable children deal with a list of problems as any average adult, sad but true.I sincerely apologise if this seems like this is a post containing stereotypical content about being problem-free during your childhood. It isn’t, at least from my side. I don’t mean to offend anyboy. The point is, I have a message to convey. I hope you understand.*

When you were a kid, you didn’t let allow yourself to fall into the enslavement of people-pleasing.

You didn’t analyze or justify yourself in  order to feel validated, you didn’t care if people approved your existence and/or your persona.

You were content just the way you were; you cared about your pet goldfish, or your puppy, or your latest toy, or your candy, or your parents (and the list goes on and on). The point is, you found happiness and joy in every little thing that came across your way.

Most of the times, if you didn’t like something, or someone, you thought to yourself, “To hell with it! I’ll go ride my bike or something” and genuinely moved on, instead of letting it bother you to your very core.

Thing is, you loved yourself. You did what you wanted, you spoke what was on your mind without the fear of being judged, about people’s shallow or petty assumptions, about you being a target of gossiping & hot topics, you didn’t always believe the things told to you by others which were both bad and wrong. You didn’t rely and feed on people’s constant approvals and compliments, though you were certainly appreciative of their kindness. You had your own back, you were more fearless and most of all, free of any regrets, at least the huge ones. Let me demonstrate further: you might’ve regretted not bringing your umbrella to school or a day when it rained cats and dogs, or that you didn’t consider bringing an extra pencil to school because you lost the one you had during the moment in school, and needed to write, but had nothing to write with. However, you didn’t regret BIG things, like compromising things specially valuable to you, jeopardising your present and/or future and letting go of something, someone, an oppurtunity to grow in fears of putting everything else that you had ever known of at risk. The fear of failure itself leads to actual failure. Not being prepared to sacrifice a little, or a lot for something your heart beats fast for, and ending up jeopardising a once-in-a-lifetime chance. Maybe you didn’t go for it because you weren’t sure what others thought of you, and what others would think of you and your newly made decision. Maybe you feared their opinions, and hence allowed them to take over your subconsciousness and subsequently your decisions. Therefore, you just weren’t as sure and clear-minded and thereby filled with doubts. Doubts in yourself. Doubts in your capabilities, your gifts.

Yes, life isn’t a bed or roses or a fairytale land either, where everything is easy peasy lemon squeezy; things are going to get harder and harder and you’ll be tested with trials according to your strength, you just never have to doubt it and think you lack anywhere. Know you are capable of moving about freely to hustle hard and make your dreams come true.


When you stop analyzing yourself, trying to find justification within yourself for every move you make, every breath you take, you find wisdom; when you find wisdom, you find a way towards your soul, and that too flawlessly and effortlessly. When you stop worrying about causing someone else’s displeasure just because you chose to do what you HAD to, you achieve a sense of freedom no one can ever steal from you but yourself. When you realise that nothing ever is truly yours, you let go of the fear of losing anything in the first place. Loss simply is an inevitable, and a lot of times a healthy process of life which you learn to accept sooner or later. When you truly realise that time does not wait for anyone, and that it is short yet ample in amount, you will stop waiting for time to always give you chances, and you will stop fully relying on time to heal your wounds. You’ll have your back just like you did once: through innocence, immaturity, learning & growing, through the phase when you were mostly oblivious to the world and through the times when you began to actually see the world. The rough times, the various confusing times and the exhausting times. When you’ll find out that you really are your own person, your own source of love and strength, that is when  you’ll be able to face, communicate and eventually get along with your personal hells. That is when you’ll be able to convert those hells into something less volatile, less violent and less powerful. You’ll exempt yourself from your personal hells.

The Sky is the limit, really.

“The enormity of this world and the entire Universe is petrifying

the thought of having to struggle after every step is terrifying

the idea of heartbreak, agony and pain is transfixing

but Dear you, how will you get to taste the sweet nectar of life without the hustle and bustle?

How will you get to touch the stars without learning to fly

and how will you learn to fly when you can’t even crawl- let alone run and jump?

How will you witness the opalescent glow of the pearls right in your palms without diving in deep waters?

How will you ever feel the joy and the rush of adrenaline from skydiving without taking the risk of falling?

How will you ever be fully aware of yourself without any heart and stomach wrenching experiences?

Triumph you see, comes from taking steps you don’t want to take

It comes from leaving behind fears and habits that keep you away from success

but you can’t seek the light and achieve the long-awaited success if you disincline to leave the toxicity behind

After all, the enormity of the world is not something you should run or hide from

it is something you must face with brisk optimism

and feel with every fibre of your body in order to be in contact with it

for the sky really is the limit, and once you seize the heart of the Universe

your fear becomes your dream, and your dream becomes your companion.”

-Samavia.

Heavy Heart

“The heart you see, has been designated as the organ of love

and the organ of pain for a reason

Each time you suffer, you feel it in your chest

not only does your entire world quake stormily, but you feel your heart shattering

You can feel each and every crack forming at its very surface, and your soul being careened towards the abyss apace

There is nothing that you can do to stop your soul from fading away deep into the darkness of the night, devoid of any stars to guide you back to the light that you had once known

for you are being eaten away from inside by your frailties and your insecurities

The toxicity of heartache is so often taken for granted, if only they knew the ruinous effects it brought along with it

The world is a ruthless place, bound to leave painful imprints on your heart

Imprints which are woeful but nevertheless quite exquisite too

They are embedded there as a lesson, but they haunt much like a poltergeist

that is why the heart feels heavy, the body and mind exhausted and the soul lost.”

-Samavia.

Gift

Everybody has his or her own gift(s). It does not always have to be something tremendous and colossal, for there is always a monumental blessing in each kind of gift, even if it is about the size of an atom. Even a simple genuine gesture that can help other people in any shape or form, for example a smile, a shoulder to cry on, or a helping hand may mean the entire Universe to someone, anyone. Someone who is desperately in need of comfort and a true friend, or is simply helpless in a situation and may need someone who can somewhat, and somehow release their burdens to a good extent. That one unconditional action filled with passion can make their black holes that suck out their energy and soul evaporate easily, something they never thought would happen. All thanks to you. Not everybody goes an extra mile for others like you do. Sure, everybody can, but not everybody wills to.

Observe yourself. Give yourself time, be yourself, for being yourself is never a crime or a fault. Accept yourself, pour love into yourself, be honest to yourself and be your very own friend. For that too is a gift, even if it is not necessarily a stereotypical talent that tends to impress a wide range audience, it is a gift you give to yourself. Whether it impresses anyone or not, it surely helps you prosper.And yes, it is a gift that will last and help you for a lifetime, you just have to acknowledge it and truly accept it, deep within the core of your heart. That is when your kindness towards everyone and everything in the world will naturally enhance too. You will become softer, more generous, more genuine,

We all certainly have gifts: infinite blessings, talents, skills, endless creativity (each of our kind(s)), and a noteworthy touch to ourselves. It is not always important to rush for them and find them instantly, and it is absolutely not good to dwell over not being able to figure out what makes you different; we are all gifted tremendously and sometimes it is okay to even just reach out for others: other human beings, animals, plants, any being and/or thing that is benefitted thanks to you. You are not incapable or useless, you are gifted, you just need to give yourself a push when you feel you need to bring change, any kind of change.
