A Liberating Conversation – #Monday Musings
We are feeling suffocated.
Why have you held us hostages?
Set us free. Set us free.
I will. I will. Soon
I will. I will. For sure.
I am waiting for inspiration to strike me to
present you all to the world in the most
You want to change us.
You want to manipulate us.
We are the exact reflection of you.
If you tamper with us, do you think
you will remain the real you?
Oh! Shut up.
You all are too much of questions.
I am waiting to find my answers.
If we shut up, you are going to end up
Okay. Say what you have to .
Are you sure, you are letting us
speak for ourselves?
Mind you we can leave you uncomfortable.
Now that you give your consent, be prepared.
Go ahead. Will you? Now?
It’s been a week. You have been piling up stories after stories. We are 5 in all currently waiting for our turns to be freed from the clutches of your diary. Your diary when closed is no less than a dark dungeon. Show us the world. Hit the keyboard. Type us out. Press the publish button and watch us fly.
You are disillusioned and disenchanted presently. You are beating yourself hard with the notion that you are forcing your everyday life onto others. Relieve yourself. Remember, everyone has the right to make their own choices. Believe, those who join you in your stories come by choice and not by force. They speak to you and the stories you write because they identify with you.
You are shaking your head in disbelief. You seem to have reached in agreement with those who tell readers come with vested interests and they talk or comment with the intention of leaving their imprints which can be traced back to their own spaces. Wait a minute? Is there anything wrong with this? This is marketing. What happens in marketing and advertising, you see glimpses of products and services but you need not necessarily buy them and make use of all of them.
Recall the lesson you learnt – We all our on our respective journeys and if we burn our energies by focusing way too much on everybody else’s journeys, we are bound to suffer on on our own. Thus, take a pause and shift your focus inwards.
Free yourself from the lure of making every story and post interesting and appealing to others. Let them talk to you first.
Free yourself from the limitation of sticking to Mondays, only, for postings. Rest of the 6 days are also your playing grounds.
Free yourself from the urge to be recognized every time as someone who writes well. Accept the days gallantly when the words do not serve you justice.
You are not here to compete or to impress but to create and venture on the path of self awareness.
A while ago, you were concluding to return to the lonesome times and we sensed you resolving not to share your posts any longer. You can try it out for a few times if solitude be the solution for you. May be, this way, you will get to meet those who are genuinely travelling with you, when they knock on the little crevices in your solitude.
This is also liberation.
Free yourself and set us free too.
Get yourself some breath and
let us breathe too.
I am feeling light,
