Few things I wish I'd known then.
Sleeping under the same roof,
Conversing with the same people.
Travelling to the same destinations,
Dining at the same restaurants.
Reading the same novels,
Listening to the same music,
Watching the same movies,
When did life become so tedious?
I seek adventure!
I seek passion!
Born to be superb,
Restricted to be average.
Working to be a professional,
But meant to be more exceptional.
Break out of these chains,
You are not meant for mediocrity.
You should be courageous,
Because you are meant for greatness.
Emerge from your cocoon,
And aim for the moon. - The Midnight Poet -

This year, let's aim to find more meaning in what we're doing, in how we're living. And that's personal. It's subjective. The goal is to find YOUR meaning, and live a life aligned to it. Cheers!
you are, so am I. Let's see where we meet, and if we do!
When it's better to remain strangers.
May you be able to spread joy to your dear ones, strangers and randomly anyone! Wish you a merry, healthy and peaceful #christmas
and an amazing new year. 🎄 🎅 #thankful
Imperfection is Beauty
Moulded to be an academic,
Encouraged to be athletic,
Hoping to find someone romantic,
Wishing for a life which is magic,
Our lives are meant to be systematic.
Aspiring to resemble people made of plastic,
These high standards are what leads to women being anorexic.
Oh! Isn't it tragic?
Lives spent in pursuit of perfection,
When Imperfection is Beauty.
We all need to have a moment of reflection,
And abandon these ideals of societal cruelty.
Never compromise to be conventional,
You are already incredible. - The Midnight Poet

"Be like a child sometimes,worrying nothing.As we turn days into years,our heart is filled with anxieties,angers,dreams,happiness.All mixed emotions we feel that sometimes we do not know if we are happy or not.You can feel it in your heart and when you take a deep breath.Even for a day , try to be like a child and just be happy." #tatasamuelquotes #poetryforthesoul #poetryfortoday #poetry #thoughts #globalvillage
The world has become an atrocious place.
One horrid experience alters perspectives.
Life has become an emotionless chase,
As people all have selfish objectives.
A relationship is merely a pass-time,
A promise is merely a disguise.
This is not a victimless crime.
Why do people feel the need to tell these lies?
Trust is worthless.
Our generations morals have shifted.
An explanation for which I do not possess.
How did we become so twisted?
Trust should not be treated as a manipulative tool,
A man's word should be meaningful. - The Midnight Poet
