Options of a Single Spinster

Being a single person in her 30s is hard. Especially in a conservative and stereotypical setting.

One starts doubting and questioning self. Was staying single worth it? Should I just get married? But is all this compromise really going to be worth it..? Will my “i do” really be the best solution to life’s travails?

Veracity & Lies

imagesI told myself a pretty lie
I almost convinced myself
Might have done the unthinkable
But scarce could let myself.

‘Twas you who
Got stuck in between
You
Whose heart
Might even
Have touched.

This convincing lie
I barely could swallow
Nor let you strive
To ascertain veracity.

Untouched

 I’ve got grit, I’ve got fire 
 But it lies unfanned.
I’ve got love, I’ve got pain

 But it lies untouched.

PEOPLE IN THE 21st CENTURY

We, all of us are busy living our own life to get a good look at another’s. And sadly its completely understandable. Because if one doesn’t look out for oneself who will?

Its just the way life has become. Its just WHO we have become.

Yes, even we the so-called “believers”. We don’t put others before us. How then can we with any honesty claim to put Christ above all?

Words and Deeds

       “By the words they say
        And the deeds  they do
        They seem so different,
        They seem so two.
Truly feel confused and left out when people,all kinds and everywhere, put on the mask of duplicity. It hurts when one’s naive trust is so abused and trampled on. Oh no, not for me are the grave misdeeds but rather the tiny breaks n cracks that amount to a lot.

It feels worse when its people who you have gradually become close to. I naively believe, as a first reaction, that “what I see is what I get”, Though the fact or reality is to the contrary. People say something  but they rarely mean it literally. it breaks my heart so. Though I practically n intellectually know that I should just let it be. This is the the world, this is life (no matter who the people are- friends or “believers”)
Nay, I am not saying I am the best or that I have no mask, I have. Many masks. Its just that time and again  I tire and grow weary of it. Though this I will say to my defense that I wear my masks to protect me. I wish I didn’t have to. I so wish I was born into a world of love and trust.
