Prose, not a Poem


Stare at the painting. Listen to the music. Watch this movie. Hear that story.
Move yourself to tears.
Soften yourself to passion.
Get inspired. Get motivated. Acknowledge your inner flame. Fuel the fire within. Let that engulf you.
Dance to your inner music. Follow your rhythm.
Strive. Fight. Make the run.
See yourself grabbing at your dreams.
Then see it slipping away. Fleeting.
Smirk. Shrug it off. Run faster.
Sacrifice. Sacrifice. Sacrifice for the greater good.
You stand alone.
Take in the pain. Revel in it. Enjoy it till you are numb.
Cleanse your soul
Continue with the beat in your head.
Don’t look at the sidelines.
They laugh with their masquerades on. Slaves to their own monsters and nightmares.
Let them continue living their false lives.
You cannot be weighed down by the condescending talks. Let it brush you past.
Overcome the obstacles. Take the higher road.
Fall. Rise. Fall again. Fall a million times. Rise a million times. Rise again.
The goal is in sight again.
It is a second away.
Will you let it slip?
