Remember, when you were a kid you used to colour out of lines? Picked up the colour you loved and without even a second thought you used to put any colour in anything. Green sky, red cats, yellow rivers, pink horses. Whatever you felt like. But one-day things started to change. People started to give you directions. They told you to colour in lines. They told you the sky must be blue; cats and horses should be coloured as per the natural colours and so does the rivers. It takes time but mostly they win. They transform you into them. Ever wondered why paintings of famous artists sometimes look like they are made by kids? That’s because they never allowed the child inside them to die. You may say that’s some kind of certificate. The kind of certificate that certifies that they are survivors. It is proof that in their battle they won, people didn’t. There is still time for you to transfer back into you, to say ‘No’ to every one of those people who try to bind you by their rules and make you nothing but puppets. There is still time to be dreamers. Because I believe that there is still that little girl/boy in you, craving to come out. I don’t want you to colour in line.
I want to see those green sky, red cats, yellow rivers, and pink horses. I want to see madness. And this time when someone tells that you are wrong, I want you to tell them- “Don’t box me in”. Most importantly, I want you to be you. Who am I? I am one of those survivors. I am one of those dreamers.
So, decide. Decide whose side you are in. The one who wants you to be you or the one who wants you to be a puppet. Decide before it’s too late. Because after a certain time when they turn you into a complete puppet, you with your own hands will kill that little girl/boy inside of you. What? Afraid? Afraid of not being fit into society? Afraid of unacceptance from your friends? Then read carefully what I wrote. And if you don’t get it, read again. Maybe then you will realize that if your friend is unable to get you, he/she is in danger. Because they are in the way of turning into puppets. I am saving you and it’s your duty to save them. But before that, you need to save yourself. First, you have to get out of the water and then extend your hand to pull them out. Cause if you tell them to get out while you are still in the water, they won’t believe in you. You will have your attention to saving them and end up drowning together. So, save yourself first, then others. Einstein said- “Only dead fish go with the flow.” Therefore, be alive, happy, and satisfied with all you have. Life itself is a blessing. Breath the air of freedom. Freedom of your soul.
And get out of the crowd
Make yourself proud
