Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

We the offspring of fate.

We the people of the sad race.

We the people with regrets.

We the class-divided, caste-divided.

We the religion-divided.

We the people with no dreams.

We the people with hopelessness injected to us as drugs.

We the sick ones. We the mads.

We the people with apologies dribbling from our mouths.

We the people pushing our fingers to our ears to block all sounds.

We the people with more ideas and less strategies.

We the restless souls on the Sahara.

We the men, the women, the not-men, the not-women.

We the unhuman.

We the secret carriers of compassion, the believers of pain.

We the chained, the roped, the bound.

We the restless.

We the givers of nonsubstance.

We the celebrants and the celebrities.

We the ill-passioned.

We the fantasizers. We the confused.

We the two-way travelers. We the mourners.

We the idle. We the tired.

We the escapists, the all-time distractionalists.

We the plastered-smile-patients-of-tears.

We the plastered-smile-patients-of-fears.

We the followers of fiction, unreality, artificiality.

We the people running in circles.

We the not-us.

  1. For some reason I really liked the line “we the men, the women, the not-men, the not-women”. It felt to me like the people that don’t live by those gender binding rules…
    Anyhow this was very real in its own amazing way. Allah (SWT) has created humans so complex and so deep and yet sometimes very shallow in what we aim for or strive for.
    Our struggles and the things we yearn for or hurt over are usually very minor…
    Our lives are a mess in every aspect.
    May Allah guide us through the haze that we call our life.
    Amazing one, Maria💎
