The Faceless Woman

A long shadow of a faceless woman, strolling the dark corridors along the silent rooms, peeking through the dark loots of the corner trying to hear the cherubim outside, the talks and laughter that echoes just outside the horizon where she limited herself off and she still peeks, afraid to let them smear.
She takes a deep breathe inside, she closes her eyes, she goes back strolling in the backyard of her mind and she now sees herself too deeply in things that she had prioritized for life long, that which she kept herself bounded with. Too ambitious to just escape for a second to listen the hymns of the nature outside defining it as the steps towards her future she saw herself growing but she still saw the larking shadow somewhere.
Time passed and she smiled though a vague one. Somehow vague she referred to her smile as and when she failed defining her own conscience with herself she defined herself as being different from others and down the line claimed to have an edge over others. And thus she started living a life which she herself made it up for herself and for people around her. Slowly and gradually she turned from a girl to a beautiful maiden and then started her life being a woman in the society. She took time as her slave, and her beauty to be her master, her words and wisdom as plans and people who we referred as friends for her became pawns on the chessboard. A touch which a woman preserves for her lifetime, she started using it to befall the pawns that fell on her path as specks of dirt. Friendship had no meaning unless she got bored with the fallen angels and wanted another and love for her lost its worth since the woman's touch which she had a pride on was now sold.
People came and people went and life as she saw it was fun and adventurous. But every adventure has its own ending. And even it had for her too. Because the day neared when she believed she got someone to stand by her side in her life, she relied on him with all her might, she trusted him, she loved him and last but not the least she lived for him but what came next made her look in awe cause she saw herself beaten on the same board on which she had been playing her game for centuries to go. Broke through her glass, shattered her beliefs,the world where she lived in cracked all over and light seeped through within, the light of knowledge, the light of life, the light of understanding and the light which she never wanted to accept.
And in ignorance of accepting the truth, she slid back to the lurking shadows she saw once but ignore it building her own fake world. She drew her own sketch of life and when the colors went haywire, her heart got conquered by darkness and she gradually slid back into the shadows. And now after this time she opens her eyes again and watches the butterflies outside swinging freely and she with her beauty trapped behind her own build shackles, no tear to drop by, no happiness to come by, no smile to light her, no eyes to glance by, trapped in her own shadow filled with ignorance and remorse. And she walked by with a candle in one hand to see her beauty once most admired. She stops by the mirror round the corner and puts the candle high for its light and what she saw was not a thing to wonder since the ignorance, the fear, the betrayal, formed in forth A FACELESS WOMAN.

Simple yet Worth it....

Wait....A word so frustrating and disgusting but thats what it is that keeps our life ticking on.Ponderng over the fact if ever, for a single day if our regular things get smoothly done without any wait. I guess there won't be a single man alive in this world surviving each day without having to wait. Even Robinson Crusoe, the man known to have got stuck in a barren island whose day to day routine was nothing but hunting and trying to survive in the wild nature waited for a survival ship to take him back where he belonged. For readers, they must have experienced it because the most famous novels are nothing but based on the concept of waiting, because if reasoned it is logical enough and a very famous phrase that there is a time for each and every thing and till that time comes its wait, thats what we have to and ought to do.
For long, I tried to get over it praying to god if only my life would be as luxurious as as the divine himself and would live the day smoothly without any worries or in simple words without to wait for anything but I was wrong in thinking that the god himself had to abide by the law and had to wait for their actions too. Well surprised!!! Talking in terms for those who believe in god unlike me, for those who vow their each and every day of their life for my following words, I would simply quote that even God who made this world and all these creations and passes decisions as devotees call as their fate all depends on waiting, even he waits for the time perfect to change a man's fortune either from gold to rock or the vice versa. And if ever we think back to the time how man and woman was created going back into the time strolling in the garden, we would have seen the wait for the urge of eating the apple by Adam and Eve and thus once the wait is over their pleasure of consequences and wait for us to be in this world.
For people like me, who is scientific enough to think God is not there and this whole world is created by the theories like big bang and we all got created from the biological components like protozoa and stuffs would also believe that it was not a play for a day or two to get created. Even this universe took ts time to get in shape. It might look for us a days work that suddenly getting born in this wonderful world and enjoy the nature's glacier around us but we overlook the wait of happiness of our mother who carried us in their womb for long nine months in wait for us to see the nature's play.
All in all we look the various aspects of life creating so many various theories and things and we as humans overlook the trivial but an essential component of our life and rather should say in everything in and around us and that is WAIT....Thats what drives us tomorow. A rich man in wait for the market to go up and get even richer, a poor in wait for some work to get rich, a girl and a boy in wait to fall in love, a teacher in wait to pass her knowledge, a student in wait to grasp them, a couple in wait to become father and mother, a baby in wait for his mother's carress, a farmer in wait for the seasons to change, an unemployed in wait to get employed, a thug in wait for an idiot to appear, a fisherman in wait for the fish to bite the bait, an artist in wait for his greatest art to appear and even GOD in wait for his blesings to devour.
Hence concluding may it whateer we say that its Time or our lines of fortune that makes our day to come, all I want to conclude that its just a tiny matter of worthful wait that makes our day. And to think of it what it gives the most satisfying look on our face, the most glorious moment, the happiest moment in our life???....Is it not when our wait is over?...To think about it, pondering over the face of a girl over with her wait to become a mother, a teacher over wth the wait to see her student prosper, a girl and a boy over with their wait and finally fall in love and so on. Its all we do regularly. Thats what keeps our emotions running. Waiting and then getting the worth of it.
So to end it in very simple words,
"Never give up. The time for you to become happy and gay will always turn around. The time for you to rise again will come again. The time the God will bless his love will rain again. But for all that to enjoy, we have to wait silent and patient as we ever canbe and that's when we get blessed by things we look forward the most."
