Rat chase


10344937_500865763347571_1853560480_nBecause in the end nobody makes it out of this hell hole alive and suffering prevails. You can keep that happy go lucky face and smile your way through the crowds but deep down within there is always going to be that feeling that lurks up in the hours of utter silence in the night and makes you think-think about what was-what had been-what will be.
That’s why there are drugs, the forbidden ecstasy that can soothe the pain and make life a bit more tolerable. When things don’t work out, you fail at life, they cheat on you, abandon you and finally life reveals its bitter colors to you. Not the shades of golden and red but awful colors of black and grey.
So my dear love, I know-I know that feel that creeps up on you! Remember, life is as good to you as you let it be and a bloody bitch to you as you let it be. Temporary is what defines this world and if you’re feeling the gloom overshadow you all you need is to smoke away the pain and drink away your worries to survive in the rat chase, again.

About Bano

I’m trying to find a better introduction but since, I can’t? Hi! I’m an ordinary person 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!
