Roses are fine,
My body is numb.
My heart so dead.
Roses are fine,
My body is numb.
My heart so dead.
It is when everyone is gone,
You’re alone from dusk till dawn.
It is when people bid adieu,
And there’s absolutely no one at your rescue.
It is when you think you’ve lost your way,
When you’re just dying in dismay.
It strikes with a sudden pain in the heart,
When everything’s falling apart.
But the best way is to act smart.
‘Cause it might be leading you to a beautiful start.
Surely there comes a time when one feels astray.
But one mustn’t ignore the forthcoming bright day.
Yes, it does look like there’s no escape.
But just ponder over the chances you could take.
But just don’t lose your calm as you get appalled with rude remarks,
Remember, it’s always the lion that roars and the dog that barks.
Just be your own mentor, be your own guide.
Never lose hope, and put all your worries aside.
‘Cause people come and people go,
What only remains are scars.
But remember it’s always in the darkest night,
That shine the brightest stars.
Roses are blue,
Violets Crimson Red,
You noticed my bruises
And not my heart that bled.
Let yourself free from this world of sadness where your thoughts afloat and your anxieties grab your soul and push you further into the dark.
Let yourself free from the tiny shell that you have confined yourself in.
Let yourself free from the company of your best friend, loneliness. Let go of her, move on for once.
Let yourself free from all this mess, from your materialistic self.
Let yourself free.
For once atleast.
I wish I could permanently delete people from my life. Delete their memories, delete their aura. Delete everything they had to do with me. Delete the bond we shared, and the memories I am regretful of. Delete the laughter that shed from my mouth, delete the sorrow that was conveyed by my eyes. Delete the sight of losing people, delete the joy of regaining them. Delete the short lasting fun that we had, delete the everlasting arguments we’ve had. Delete what all I can, delete everything I can.
Yes, whether good or bad, right or wrong, salty or nasty, sweet or sour. I do not want to recall the memories that we’ve shared. Delete them all, for all I care.
Offend me? I swear.
Offend my bestfriend? Don’t you dare.
What we gossip about? Don’t you worry.
Mess with us? You’d be sorry.
Think we’re cool? Yeah, you’re right.
Think we’re not? We’d be in a fight.
Wanna be with us? Please, don’t you interfere.
Wanna be like us? No, you just can’t, dear.
You adore us? Good.
You don’t? You should.
Wonder why we’re always together? Yes, we’re inseparable.
Wonder why I chose her? well she’s so adorable.
Do we ever fight?Yes, all the time.
Wanna fight with her too? Nope, she’s mine.
My bestfriend is my soulmate, I say with zest.
Don’t you call yours cooler, cause my bestfriend is the best.
So as some of you may know, a very talented young Korean man, Kim Jonghyun, the lead singer of the boyband SHINee, committed suicide on Monday (18 December 2017) and left us all with some memories of his to cherish and mourn. It is believed that he consumed very unhealthy amount of carbon monoxide, a very poisonous gas and died. Earlier, he had been sending disturbing messages to his sister, dropping hints of his mission, and in doubts his family and friends tried protecting him but it was of no use. He was taken to the hospital after the accident but was declared dead soon after. Two weeks before his death, he even sent a 47- line text to his friend Jang Hee- Yeon, a band member of Dear cloud, in which he clearly said that he was broken from the inside.
So pretty, clearly, the boy died due to mental issues, stress and depression. But the worse part, he was just 27, he had his whole life ahead of him. He was definitely getting too much of hate to bear which made him take such a big step.
Honestly speaking, since I am not that much into K-Pop(just familiar with a few artists), I didn’t know about him. Yet, I cried for him. I felt really really bad for what he did to himself. But seems like he had no choice.
I really don’t get it that why is there so much hatred in this world. Like how cruel can one be? How can people be that incredibily devilish? How can people hate on someone so bad as to push them to their death? What about the person’s feelings? No bother.
It has purely been due to the hatred that he had been receiving all this time that added up and lead to something this disastrous. Mental illness, what they say. Congrats to you haters, you won. And it has not been just for the first time that anyone has taken such a step. Just because he was famous, this issue had been brought into the limelight.
I hope people realize the mess they’ve caused because after Jonghyun, more than 100s of Shawols(SHINee’s fans) have committed suicide. This clearly needs to stop. It takes approximately 5 seconds to send hate to someone. But that person receiving it might feel bad for over 5 mins, 5 hours, 5 months or maybe 5 years…. you never know.
So, if you’re reading this, and you’ve ever sent hate to someone or want to, just stop. Picture yourself in their shoes. And then, you wouldn’t even dare to. I still feel that if people had been a lil sweeter, he would have still been alive. The world didn’t deserve him. I hope he’s in a better place now.
R.I.P Jonghyun 🌹\\ You will be missed.
Has it ever been that you’ve stopped just a step before you were about to do something? Have you ever stopped being yourself, caring for yourself and cared about others’ opinions instead? Have you ever stopped dreaming? Have you ever stopped living?
Deep down, you’ll realize…that yes, it’s true. You have, each moment, each minute, each second of your life, stopped doing what you’ve wanted to. Stop trying , for what you could have achieved and won.
People will speak the shit they wanna. Will let you down, will try to chop off your wings. But don’t listen to their opinions. Fly, as above the sky you can. Swim the deepest of oceans. Spread your wings like an angel, and soar above the sky. Run, walk, crawl, but just don’t stop moving ahead.
Roses are flawed.
Violets are blemished.
The people I loved and cared for,
Are the one that actually vanished.

Just in case you’re having a bad day (or perhaps think so) think of:-
Just think of such scenarios and ponder over. Do you think your plight is worse than theirs? Don’t you think that their plight makes yours look insignificant now?
There’s so much to thank for. So many things to smile about. But all we do is make our materialistic self cry over a mere thing. Consider a beggar now, who just begs all day, but doesn’t get enough bread to fill his and his family’s empty stomachs. And here we are….complaining for not getting enough cheese on our pizza or enough meatballs in noodles. Instead of donating a proportion of our meal to the beggar, we actually go about weeping over it not being enough.
Whenever you get these thoughts just take a step back and wonder whether you’re actually having a bad day. Appreciate when you must and thank when you should. And the most important thing … Stop Complaining.Once you do you’ll realize that it wasn’t a bad day at all. All that makes a day ‘bad’ is simply your attitude. Change your attitude into gratitude.
And you will never have a bad day again. ☺
