i am a rock

I Am a Rock by Simon & Garfunkel

A winter’s day
In a deep and dark
December
I am alone
Gazing from my window to the streets below

On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow
I am a rock
I am an island

Don’t talk of love
But I’ve heard the words before

15966685_10155689426343761_1126368295_o
It’s sleeping in my memory
I won’t disturb the slumber of feelings that have died

If I never loved I never would have cried
I am a rock
I am an island

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me

I am shielded in my armor
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb

I touch no one and no one touches me
I am a rock
I am an island

And a rock feels no pain
And an island never cries

welcome to 2017. So many promises. So many things to look forward to. 2016 was phenomenal. One of the best years for sure. 2017 will only be better. faith. Such a small thing but so very important. A leap of faith. Blind faith. These are not merely words. They stand for something so big that our tiny little minds can’t even begin to comprehend the implications of these said words. But one can certainly try. try to have faith.

This piece is an attempt to summarize all the things that 2016 has made me feel. I am a sucker for contemplation, introspection, reminiscing, soul searching and yada yada yada. So every now and then when i zone out and zone in my own little world and when i reflect on the 25 years of my existence on this strange planet, i begin to understand my own self a little better, it gets a little clear with every attempt, one layer after the other. The things that shaped you, the events that changed your life, the milestones that got you where you are today. Everything happens for a reason and unless you don’t believe that a 100 percent, and unless you don’t look inside and analyse everything thats going on around you, you’ll never see it – you’ll never see the order in the chaos. Its always been there, waiting for you to stumble upon it. But it happens in its own time. So have faith. Have faith in the world, in yourself, in your wisdom, in your beauty, in your strength – you are so amazing you don’t even know it.
Stay cool. Bye!
