Bombings, wars, politics, sexism, inequality, hatred, deceit and what else not.
It fills you with terror, fear, sometimes no hope for humanity.
You look at yourself and the world and think about it, “is this what we fight for?”
And you are lost in the maze of your thoughts and, suddenly a naive child asks you to hold his balloon for him
He tells you “Handle it with care.”
And even with lot on your mind
You promise you will take care of the balloon.
When he is done with his work and asks the balloon back.
He smiles the brightest smile and
You half smile at him watching him walk by;
Just like that with a smile, innocence is born again.

On some nights, when you can’t turn off the voices in your head and your demons come out to play with you some more. When you toss the pillows and pull up the blanket coherently so you can sleep. You even plug in your earphones to listen some music to drift away and check out all 7345 images saved in your phone all at once .
On some nights when your heart wants to run wild free underneath the night sky, or somewhere, anywhere but here. Yet you are stuck in four corners of your tiny home. Just remember on those nights
even on such lonely moments, I still think of you.
I get it. All right.
You are filling up your soul, no not your soul; you are trying to fill the void that occurred to you few years ago.
I don’t know how the void came into existence. I honestly don’t know.
Maybe someone walked out of your life or else maybe you didn’t get the love you deserved.
It can be also because life took you somewhere and you didn’t wanted to end up there.
It might be also due to your mistake of your past or fear of future.
Your might be also in waiting for something to arrive or must be tired of waiting forever.
I don’t know why this void came into existence.
But all I know there exist a void inside and you are trying to fill it with all the things you can get hands on.
With music, books, movies, sports, sometimes even with a drink or two.
You are trying to fill as fast as you can with all the things you can avail to.
But if you must know, know this
these empty void spaces inside you
can be only filled up by another human
Cause flesh beholds only flesh, nothing less or nothing more.
And if you are enough lucky
you might eventually find that human
who comes into your life and fill these void
without your permission and take you to whole new reality!
On nights like these, when you question everything you held on to. I hope these words I write, finds you. It finds you and embraces all of you and yourself. That it’s okay to believe in something that might or might not exist. But it is very important that you still ‘BELIEVE’
