Am I Too Late? By Farheen S.
Sitting closer to the window near to my plants, observing the quietness of life, the loneliness of soul, I was asking myself one question again and again, am I late? Am I late to recover myself, am I late to make myself valuable for this nature, am I late to value every single living and non-living thing equally, am I late to thank God that He has provided me countlessly.
Today I am writing because I am close to my answers. I am not late. You can never be late. This virus is just a warning for us before our final destinations. It has come to give us a deadly warning because we have ignored all previous warnings that were not affecting our lives personally.
Try to observe the chaos in the World. Death is not something new, it is coming to everyone who is black or white, who is from a developed or developing country, who is rich or poor, who is Muslim, Christian, Hindu or else and that is also not new. The new thing is that it is coming all together at the same time. People were oppressed before too if you see the examples of Syria, Myanmar, and Kashmir that was okay for us because I was not in that place, You were also not in that place.
Here am I rolling the pencil in my hair again and again,
Starts to watch Netflix, observing myself in Netflix background,
Thinking about things that I can regain What I can do to make this earth stable again
An idea in my mind comes to maintain Why not spend time on me to sustain
That's how we all will make an interchain By giving the nature some time to constraint
It is time to explore yourself instead of exploring the world. It is time to explore the hidden corners of your mind and soul. I know, I would never have done that if I would be on my vacation days. Because this vacation/work from home time was not planned by us. It was planned by nature and that can not be controlled by superpowers too. Sit in the corner of your room, take a cup of coffee or tea, take a pencil and paper, Start to write what you want to do but you think you can't do. Use this time to take the first step, just the first step. Believe me, the next one will come naturally.
