22/2017: Crush

This is just a little crush, which makes every part gush. Not rooted in reason, but the feelings just deepen. How do I stop the words from flowing, before the joy in my heart starts showing.

3/2017: Back to the Grind

Get up, move forward, just another day, can't stop to think, it will just get in the way. Keep up with the Joneses, you know what they say, "if you want happiness", you just have to pay.

Day 333: This Isn’t Bollywood

Time to dismantle all my expectations, of all the religiously acceptable quotients, set up to determine the marriable connections, sheilding all the wanton deceptions of culturally knighted princes' delusions.

Day 326: Chasing the Dream

Too many choices, even fear the right one, so much to lose, even after the game's won. How do I pick a path, a way forward, when the future before me is blurred? Keep juggling opportunities in endless motion, chasing the dreams of boundless fortune. What happens if I drop these balls, will the heavens… Continue reading Day 326: Chasing the Dream
