JOKER (2019) Review – We Live in a Society

Gotham is revived in living color and in inauspicious despair as it bears growing lawlessness that commands the centric theme of the highly-anticipated character study on the harlequin of hate who has been praised as a saint for exiles throughout the ages – Joker. The notorious, infamous, face-painted, and fearmongering character has been one that has become, in sorts, a mockery of itself in recent … Continue reading JOKER (2019) Review – We Live in a Society

Compare and Contrast

All people do with writing is compare love to beauty or sadness to disaster. Why can’t we include contrasting feelings with objects or moments? Why is it so uncommon to be the one to write about “comparing” someone or feelings for someone to something that it actually isn’t? Why don’t we write about not only what is, but also what isn’t? I can tell you that you … Continue reading Compare and Contrast

Roots

The scent clings to my coat,       Showing me the endless possibilities of humility       Awkward stares, noses scrunching in distaste In disdain, I lift my foot over the threshold,       Disconnecting the ties that held my cloak of warmth       And let it fall behind me as graciously As Ma stirs the curry on the stovetop,        Onions Garlic Chilli all coated with masala        Masala that drifted the air … Continue reading Roots

Let Me Speak – A Compilation of Weeks.

i want to fall in every sunrise.   like it’s my last day to breathe.   i want to coat myself in colours.   a shining technicolour that’ll shield my vision.   entwined in a bubbling concoction, hiding truths.   and i’d rather not consume today or tomorrow.   simply pacing them on the shelf to hide. bare and shivering.   stripped from any warmth. … Continue reading Let Me Speak – A Compilation of Weeks.

Window

The emotionless rectangle on the wall calls me, tempting me to take a look outside. As hard as I try to give in, to let my curiosity take over, I can’t. It is not the rectangle’s detached nature that scares me, but what lies on the other side. The view outside the rectangle has never been kissed good luck by the luscious sun. Monstrous thunders … Continue reading Window

I’ve always been an “it’s a sign” type of girl I made everything a sign whether it be finding a penny on the street, seeing a motivational sign at a coffee shop, or meeting you, I always took it as a sign. You see, I believe in fate. Everything happens exactly when it happens for a reason. It was all a part of this plan … Continue reading yet

An Honest Letter To The Education System

Dear Faculty, I’m beyond stressed out. You’ve made me fear success as much as failure, because opposite the fear of failure, is the fear of expectations. People seem to either expect nothing at all or everything from me, as if average isn’t awful, but I’m definitely not doing well. “You could do better.” A quote I’ve heard from far too many teachers and have remembered … Continue reading An Honest Letter To The Education System
