Everything is Perfect

Hope I am not jinxing it, but even if I am, I am not – that is my definition of perfection. It is not defined by external stimuli but the internal state of mind. That is not to say that things aren’t missing in my life… I mean, in the outside world. THE OUTSIDE WORLD…

20 in 2020

I am turning 20 day tomorrow and it feels as though this is supposed to be a software upgrade, and I am the system. Or well, I am, to others, another person who makes decisions, like all human beings I have an ‘image’ because of the ways people perceive me. Everyone perceives everyone in a…

Freewriting, 20/11/20

I am in my first semester of my BFA in Screenwriting program at NYFA – and although my first semester has been online due to COVID – I am finding it enduring. I am finally learning something relevant to me, my passion, and my creativity. Yesterday I received my mid-semester grades – I got an…

The Education System

I have an indifference towards the school system – perhaps ‘indifference’ is a kind word for how I feel about it. I know sigh the education system is a platform for success. It is a chance for people to change their lives and to achieve their dreams. That is beautiful, I agree. However, we also…

Non-Vegetarian to Vegan

I believe that there are but two aspects of my personality that define me as a person, these include my creativity and my being an animal lover. At a very young age, I realized that the consumption of meat results in the slaughter of innocent animals and so, by the age of 7 I had…

I composed the following essay for my University application and it got me my first scholarship. It’s brief and leaves out many details for the sake of being concise: Even at a very early age, I had an idea of who I am – of course, simply being in middle schoo affected my life to…

Loneliness in 2020

One of the many lessons 2020 is trying to instill in us is that solitude is beautiful, severely underrated, stigmatized to connote depression, and absolutely necessary. At my last Birthday party, I had around 60 guests in attendance, it was just a couple of weeks shy of this amazing year of transformation. 2020, like I’ve…

Protection From 2020

Am I still bursting with happiness and joy as I was for the first couple of months after returning from New York? This is a question I asked myself today – call it a moment of uncertainty. If I were ashamed to have experienced this moment of weakness, so to speak, I would only have…

Far Below – Poem

Freeze thy bloody jawbonesCease them unmovingly For flames thou shalt No longer draw as breath Yet the grimy muck ofThy bottommost nether coffin For it’s nadir thou hast Wormed thy way deep into  Now go mingle thee blood With that of bohemoth bones And dread thou shalt no longer writhe inFor there thou shalt beam louder, clearer Far…

Awoke to Lanterns – Poem

36 hours on and off sometimes to no endLike infinity feels this expeditionPeculiar the thought but cease it be The bulky, heavy idea thatNo one is trulyWho they claim to be Each new person encounteredAnd there lingers tightly the thoughtWhen will they betray me? Each individual to the abyss lostOusted forever, no longer circling my…
