the wait, the silence,
in between the announcements
the ticking arms of the hanging clock
recording millions of stories
of the moments which pass

and Me

solo travelling to celebrate the day
I entered in the world unknown

Incapable

glitter took away the beauty of raw
the razzle-dazzle blinded the flaw
hearts clenched by greed’s claws
oh human, why did you not foresaw

the trees, the plants, the animals
desideratum your hand, amicable
inattentive attitude is despicable
oh human, your intelligence proved you are incapable

The EifFel TowEr

Standing in front of it, the confident stature had glint in her eyes washing memories of how her parents acted when she wanted to learn Architecture.

She was nine when she announced her dream to her parents. A dedicated notebook was filled with its pictures. The glowing Eiffel tower in Paris, underneath which the twinkling River Seine flows, was the first in her collection. Attracted to the geometrical design, she started weaving her path.

Architect was no field for her parents as the society has already graded fields according to the amount of income received and the more the amount, the higher the status in society which simultaneously increases the respect of the parents. The narcissistic parents tried to change their daughter’s path to being a Doctor. Their egoistic actions and words went rude with each other as well as her while watching her marks, in the specific subjects, never making it above borderline. This inscribed the saddest part of her life in her heart.

Being an adult and watching her classmates achieving their dreams, she chose to go against her parents, for the first time in twenty years. Not knowing if it is right or wrong, she applied for the course of architecture in Paris with scholarship.
