“God Farishte, stop being SUCH a cynic!” This is how most conversations with me usually end. See, I’m not exactly the most romantic, optimistic person. I’m more of a hopeless realist. I don’t really believe in happily-ever-afters. But then I came across Zack Grey’s Instagram – a writer who believes in everything I don’t. See, Zack writes to the soulmate he hasn’t yet found (his book is titled “To The Girl I Haven’t Met”), believing that true love, through all the ups and downs, is inevitable. His poems, though small, are proof that you don’t need big metaphors or fancy…Continue Reading

You’re blessed, for you can understand people like nobody else can. Reach out and…Continue Reading

For People Who Always Give More Than They Get, Please Don’t Change

You were raised to believe that you always get what you give. The world goes around, what you reap is what you sow, doing unto others as you would have them do unto you – you know these by heart. They’ve been your life’s mantra. You’ve repeated them over and over, under your breath to cope with the world crumbling around you. Because the people you loved and gave everything to, chose to leave anyway. That never stopped you though, did it? Because surely, there must be enough love in the world to eventually find its way back to you.…Continue Reading
