Please Listen

What do you do when people are being very stubborn...
So stubborn that they've stopped seeing anyone's perspective other than their own...

When they try and convince you in every possible way that they are looking after your welfare.. but they don't see that they are doing as much harm...

All you can do is try and be calm.. and wait for them to hear your plea...
Not just hear, but listen to them... and understand.. what exactly we are saying !!!

Freedom

What happens when you suddenly break free...
The realization that you were caged so far suddenly dawns upon you...

As though... I was so used being in the cage, that I didn't know of a world beyond it... That the walls were where it all ended...

But the most painful is when there is a creak in the wall, and you can see what you are missing out on...

A Daily Ritual

All of us have small little rituals, that comfortably become a part of our daily lives... And we don't even notice them till they stop... be it a good night kiss, or a meal together..

Actually, I always used to wonder during my childhood why my mother used to try her best that all of us eat dinner together at the dinner table... yes.. dinner table !!!
It all sounds like an alien concept, with tight schedules and the television to give us company..

But it all makes sense to me now... through our entire busy day,we are always surrounded by different objects/people... Dinner seems to be the only time when the entire family has the opportunity to sit together.. and talk... discuss the day's events... and other trivial things....

As unimportant and trivial as it may sound, I have come to believe that a family that eats together, stays together !!!
