Sold

I sold my dreams

Little by day

And little by night

Until I was no one but a puppet

A puppet made out of flesh and bones

Held by veins and motivation for peace

Stringing onto one dear life

One day at a time

Till it was plucked

The day I sold my soul

To the highest bidder- work, family and suffering

Hoping to redeem myself from this life

Only to realize

I shall forever be a no one

At the worst phase of my life I was alone

Now I am not scared to be alone at the top

As everything has a price

The price I pay to be myself just for one day,one hour and even for 1 min shall forever be due

As I am puppet stringed to this life like you my dear

This is to all the hardworking people that forget to give time for themselves.

Happy Monday Guys😊

  1. Even attached to a string, a puppet can take a few minutes out and dance…

    I hit that point emotionally of feeling empty trying to live to meet other’s expectations and not being able to please everyone, but when I hit it I was on top of a mountain (Half Dome in Yosemite) during a thunderstorm, completely alone (because of the danger of the thunder hitting the metal railings). It was beautiful, but it’s ironic to me how those certain rare moments of real-life can be strangely poetic. 🏞️
