Floating on a Cloud

I had grown up reading an Urdu couplet which said (translated version)

Develop your individuality to the extent

That God asks you ‘Tell me what do you want?’

I stopped being a feminist, humanist etc., and just focussed on being an individualist. Relationships touched an all-time low, as my new avatar was not easily accepted. Rejection, disapproval, dissent, adversaries gunning for me … I was rising up on the cloud of individualism.

And there I met God riding a larger white cloud (mine was grey, I confess),

“Tell me, would you like to go down with a thud or whimper?”


Inspired by Saturday Mix – February 25,2017 – Bastet
