New Beginnings
Eelaf Noor | Class XI-White| Beaconhouse Defence Campus, Lahore
I lived in a place where the desperate cries of fragile species were silenced
I silenced my objections and accepted their vile bearings
After all, who was I to speak?
I was only to bear the pain of a child, the afflictions of a husband the burden of a thousand unsaid thoughts that I will take to the grave
After years of suffering, I decided to look up to sky and ask for rain once again
I asked for the sun that once shone down on me and gave me the warmth of a home I craved
After years of sacrifice, I stole a single moment of leverage life gave me and made that into a lifetime
I look in the mirror and see someone fighting a new battle every day, carrying the weight of broken yesterdays and the hope for every tomorrow to come
I am entering a realm unknown to me till yet
A world of choices and acceptance and belief
Of every next breath, I am still unsure, the taste of freedom not yet familiar
I am trying to let go of the woman I was a thousand yesterday’s ago, but my tyrannized soul still hears whispers of blasphemy on such a thought
I am aware such torturous thoughts will stain my future on many occasions
The nightmares of the life I left behind may very well catch up to me, I may be weary of every decent man that gathers the courage to talk to me
After all my efforts, I still left a part of me in one of the yesterdays
However, the courage I find in me is not temporary
It is not a box of forgotten memories that I will find once in a while
My determination stems from self-love and acceptance that I perceived after years of silence. With every new beginning, I recover a lost part of mysel
