It’s not a past

Past (adj.)

You are not your past
you are not what you’ve gone through
you are not your past mistakes or flaws…

So do people say? Past has a poignant significant in our daily life.

A nation without an envious past is probably illiterate or dying inside.
A family without a past is hated by all.
A kingdom without a past was a kingdom of darkness.

Even devil has a past. Most of the devils were once the angels. A slave was once a king.

You must have a past; you are almost nothing without a past. You must build a bright future but never overlooking your past; your past is your second skin, it is like an invisible tattoo; no matter what you do, you can’t erase it.

Philosophy says past is nostalgia. Most of us believe past is a maze and we should concentrate in present. But truly, past is a bit of looking back to look ahead.

Everyone pretends to be happy

Everyone pretends to be happy

Everyone says ‘I’m fine’

Everyone shows he/she is happy with job, salary, fiancé

Everyone says he/she is in the same page with lovers, friends, family

Everyone gives effort to be beautiful

Everyone spends time and money to be fair

Everyone keeps the smile curve on face

Sadly,

No one is happy with his/her life

No one is watching the sunny sky

No one is okay with parents or lovers

Everyone is complaining about his/her life

Everyone is broken, sad, sceptic

No one is trying to break the false façade

No one is showing the real self

No one is confiding

No one can go with the idea of being poor

No one can tolerate the idea of being obsolete or oddball

This is the society we live in. we always perform like actors. We forget to be the real one.

Went to Venice
wore the Venetian masks,
enjoyed gondola ride,
kissed against the bridge railing…

Went to New York
counted the skyscrapers,
walked down Times Square,
dreamt “Maid in Manhattan” kinda love,
cried over Twin Towers…

Went to Paris
enjoyed French opera,
ate macaroons,
kissed under the Eiffel Tower

Went to Amsterdam,
tied love-lock in the bridge,
threw the key in the water

Went to London
enjoyed the vintage charms,
took selfie in front of Big Ben,
loved the city from London Eye,

All of these happened inside our heads over Whatsapp texts.
