She...



She is a flower. So delicate that she’s even scared of the dew touching her. She thinks she’ll be torn apart by ravenous human beings. But actually, her own feelings are doing the same to her, leaving shreds of herself in front of her.

Silently she despises herself. For not being one with the crowd. For not doing things like they do. Locking herself in her room, while the others scream and squeal outside, she feels like an outsider to herself. She is lost, burdened by her emotional baggage, ravaged by her own soul. She wants to break free, and fly away to a place where complicacies don’t complicate, where respect holds respect, where politics don’t politicise every damn thing. A sad reality- how straight-forwardness is not liked by the fake people in this world. How she is gifted loneliness by the fake people, who only flock with their own kind. She can’t fake anything. She is truth, she is life, and she is a river flowing along her own course. She is looking for herself in the coal, while she is herself turning into a priceless diamond under the pressure and heat of the forest. The forest of ravenous, insensitive, selfish and political human beings.

She just needs someone to observe her from outside, someone who is not blind to differentiate the diamond from within the coal.

Guess what? She just found that person.

  3. Very well written as always. Honestly I thoroughly enjoyed the built up about the mythical girl "she".
    When I read this post, it reminded me of the stories of Cindrella which I had heard long long back.
    But one complain at last. I would have loved if you could have build it up further and not end it abruptly.

    Just a thought from a absolute non blogger

  5. the portrayal is so exact Amrita :) she's so beautiful.. i wonder why the world around her full of predators around her who would never let her be the way she is, and compel her to change, to kill her real self..

    1. Yes Wildflower it is a cruel world. They do not let her be. She has to gather all the courage to live her life the way she wants...

  10. Absolutely nice Amrita, especially this one is superb: "She just needs someone to observe her from outside, someone who is not blind to differentiate the diamond from within the coal."
