I am strong because I was weak.
I know what’s loyalty because I was betrayed.
I don’t care because once I had cared too much.
I am silent now because the words that came out were often misinterpreted.
I don’t wear clothes that are clean.
I have made mistakes, grave mistakes that shattered me, my image, my ego.
It’s a delusional world, you see. We tend to be attracted towards the ones who ignore us, loyalty, faith, belief have been made cheap, disgusting by people who very proudly say they are the harbingers of love.
What is love?
Singing, dancing, romanticising is it love?
Or is it something more deep, something more divine.
All, including me, you, are hypocrites. We wear faces, masks that cover the one face we don’t show to anyone, falsely accusing anyone who crosses our ways. Because it is easy to accuse, get done with the responsibilities and oh yes, wear a mask so that the entire universe sympathizes with you, glooming over the fact that you have been a victim of an attack. But, the real face, the one you haven’t shown to anyone, yes that one, it is the one true you.
I admit today I am not happy with what my that face has shown me. The past, the many devious concoctions. But yes, I am ready to improve, ready to let go off everything to start afresh, build new foundations for the future. We were made to make mistakes, mistakes that taught us that fire should not be played with, that a bleeding wound needs to be looked at or else you will be infected, that throwing a stone at the sky will hit you back, sometime.
Yes, I am ready to show my face to the world.
The question is, are you….?
