Saving a life

In order to lead people you got to have some place to go

Will it suffice for me to want to shrink, yet grow?

Accumulated stars want to break free from constellations,

It’s like pulling wire out of wood, and designing glass instead

A broken clock may be right twice a day, but what’s the use, only for a minute?

We’re not on the same wavelength, just the same ocean

Everyone thinks the tide they bring surpasses any previous one

Don’t they know that their efforts flow just the same?

Imaginary floods, wipe out what could crash us by mistake

The unpredictable, a blessing or a curse, whatever you want

This beautiful mess, symbolizes what you think you know

What a tragedy that this is what connects us whole:

Not knowing

The whites and blacks in your piano, play themselves their own color

And you thought you created music?

What if I showed you your fingerprints under a microscope?

Would you think yourself capable of scarring the whole world?

It’s like asking paper how many times it would like to be smashed

Before you rip it without a second thought

Or asking ice what temperature it would like to melt to

And you thought you could save a life…

Hi. Now that you're here...let's just get this out of the way. I hadn't introduced myself in the past because when I first started this blog, I wanted it to be purely about my writing. This is not, and was never supposed to be, an anonymous blog. However, after almost a year of inactivity, I realize an 'about' section is...necessary? My name's Sadia. I live in Islamabad, Pakistan. Between uni/work/life in general, I try to take time to write. I own all content on this blog. Although, I do NOT own the images posted here, nor do I take credit for them whatsoever. I wanted to thank my visitors, for still being loyal and genuine after this long. In case you want to know more about me for whatever inexplicable reason, ask ahead and I'll get back to you! This right here, keeps me sane. You will find here, sincere thoughts mixed up with a subconscious trying to fuck it all up. I hope you understand. Love, Sadia.
