How to Find Your Shadow in the Dark?

As we grow old, we face enough complexities daily. Life becomes a spider web; everything moves away, every hope disappears. You walk with a heavy heart trying to figure out what’s right and what’s wrong. You go in a trance, you feel nothing, and you see nothing. Emptiness becomes your only friend, your only enemy. You see people running behind buses, trains, running for survival.

Your confusions grow, your heart throbs reluctantly, and you search for an outlet to vent off. Premonitions, nightmares, loneliness and other unwanted visitors keep disturbing your chaotic soul. You try to envisage things that may not be available to you in this life, you try to cross the ocean with your broken ship, you become nonsensical, and your madness makes you silent.

People keep whining about their pain but the adversity never leaves them so easily. Nobody thinks about a loser. Time is money, and money is time. Poets are treated badly, writers die lonely, and philosophers live in their dilapidated caves. The world loves practical approach, speed and accuracy.

Howling at the middle of a silent night with pain is no more a fiction. People no more sleep well, they have trouble. There’s so much pain all around the horizon. Oh! The weather’s changing, let’s feel the summer rain, let’s forget all our sorrows for a moment, just jump around like a three year old. Sometimes we have to accept whatever we get; sometimes we just have to feel our shadows somewhere resting in the dark…


  1. Life- somehow its meaning is lost
    its taken away within seconds without giving a thought
    Has it become so practical
    that a mother pushes her own kids off a tower
    sorrows loneliness have refined life
    numbing pain even without a knife
    shadows ignored even in light
    to find the shadow in darkness do we have to fight?

  2. No one's ever what they seem to be. You meet them, and you think you have them all figured out, but little by little you learn more and more things about that person. Then in the end, they're a whole different person. Someone you thought they'd never be.
