i’m at the park, im sat next to my favorite person in the world, my best friend, i can hear the faint squeals of excited children, blending into the background, and for reasons i can’t think of i am reminded of how much i want to belong, to just fit in, and i mean this in the most non-pretentious way possible, i want to melt into the background, I’m reminded of how much i want to escape the watchful eye of society, how much i want to be an insignificant color of the spectrum, i want to be another shade of red, not quite significant but there, a part, not an important part but a part nontheless, and it’s very conflicting, because if i was to become just another unknowing person, how am i supposed to climb out of that when i decide that i want to touch people’s lives?

A Letter To Someone Who Died

“write hard and clear about what hurts.”

Ernest Hemingway

dear mom,

i am losing my head, what part of me that held onto this world, ever so lovingly, is dissipating, whithering and wilting, responding to the harsh gravity of grief, it’s been a year 200 days 9 hours 55 minutes 6 seconds, and i can still feel the sadness you left in your wake, the pain, the hurt, the void i’ve now learned to ignore. 45 more words

London Bridge Attack: Inhumane, Atrocious, and Non-Muslim Ā 

“Humanity is but a single brotherhood, so make peace with your brethren.” (The Quran 49:10)

Today, I woke up to news of more bloodshed, to a world who’d lost 7 of its innocent and unsuspecting civilians, I am truly and utterly disheartened by the news (as anyone in their right minds would be), but to say that I was surprised would be a lie and that scared me lots, the fact that terrorism is now becoming to feel like the new normal, the frequency of such horrific attacks has brought a new and disgusting sense of normality to the situation. 498 more words

It’s sad how some have time to go around bothering people and contributing to their already crumbling state, it’s sad that some have it in them to rationalize bullying. 52 more words

Fading Away

I wrote this 30 minutes into a very boring chemistry class, I was drowsy, sleepy, and not in my right mind.

I had a dream. I dreamt that I was falling into a deep black endless abyss, I distinctly remember the puddles of terror exploding under my skin, i felt the coldness that embraced me, I felt the horror of not knowing, but I also felt alive, I felt human. 124 more words
