Let it breathe

Standard

Sometimes don’t you feel like the world is suffocating you? You have everything you ever wanted yet you still feel empty? Your hearts beating, you’re exhaling and inhaling and body functions are being performed like always but still heavy pressure inside your chest; above you lungs. A heat inside that burns.  Feeling empty and devoid of something that you know is in the inner corner of your soul but you refuse to search and look for it on the outside.

Sometimes don’t you feel like ripping your chest open? Letting the flame inside catch fire and engulf you in it, letting your soul breathe. Come out and burn everything around you. Maybe in that fire and its ravenous lust of destruction, maybe in the beauty of those golden flames and maybe in the heat that cooks you raw, you will find peace.

About Bano

I’m trying to find a better introduction but since, I can’t? Hi! I’m Sheher Bano Zafar and I write. I write not because there lies aspiration to be a writer someday but because, it keeps me sane. I love the color silver, black and grey. I also realize that they fall under the same color tone. Whatever, I write is a result of my 3 a.m blues or insomniac depressive tendencies. I can’t write during the day. I’m addicted to caffeine and well, anything and everything (if I like it). Also, I suck at conversations. I bite my nails. Most of the time I’m clueless about the world around me. I love politics and youth activism. People tell me that art and politics don’t belong in the same mind, but I’m passionate about both. One day I might be drawing on a canvas or writing a story and the very next day I will be heading off to attend a summit on the role of youth at the United Nations. I have multiple people trapped in the same body. Each side does try to express itself, in minimal ways if not fully. I’m currently going through a rough patch in life. I guess, I’m adjusting to the world through multiple perceptions. I absolutely love talking to myself because an expert opinion is always required. Most of the time, I just play scenarios in my mind that would never happen. I’m very contradictory in my thought process and actions but it is okay, people get to be what they want to be as long as no other soul is hurt. Peace out!
