Where Would I Rather Be?

Where would I rather be?
The place which isn't far away from me,
It all depends on my belief.
I'd rather be where there's peace,
Where smiles are free,
Where tears neither belong to you nor me,
Where it’s all about victories,
Where miseries don't slap you publically,
Where playing with innocent lives isn't a regime,
A place so heavenly,
Where every moment motivates me with sweet memories,
A place that believes in the heart's beauty,
Where liars don't prevail,
And fake ones don't exist!

 Where would I rather be?
 Where everyone is happy,
 Where love lasts,
 It neither weakens me nor breaks me,
 Where trust isn't shattered,
 Where life isn't unpredictable,
 Where justice is served,
 Where voices are heard,
 Where crying to myself isn't a routine,
 Where every sunrise enlightens me,
 Where I won't be judged cruelly.

 Where would I rather be?
 A place more like fantasy,
 Where I won't be afraid to lose my beauty,
 Where these youthful years won't be part of memories,
 Where life will be full of luxuries,
 Materialism won't be a "tragedy",
 Where things could bring internal harmony,
 Where each moment is party,
 Lavish life more than that of celebrities,
 Such a place is in my dreams.

 Somewhere I’d rather be,
 Is a place where we all could be,
 Not a mere dream or fantasy,
 As a Muslim it is my belief,
 Good deeds are all I need,
 To obey the Lord's teaching is the way to succeed,
 Then only will heaven welcome my being,
 Where would I rather be?
 The place which isn't far away from me,

 It all depends on my belief!

In The Dark...

We live in a world where we are judged on our every single action. Judgements which are based on assumptions, a common mindset or just mere perceptions. We are judged on baseless reasons, reasons that aren't ours! What we feel or go through will never ever be considered because it doesn't add spice to the gossip. 

Let’s face the truth, no matter how much we hate people who judge, in the end we ourselves end up judging people. We judge people on their smiles, on their tears, on their natures, on their habits, on their every single step, without knowing their story, their reality.

Not only we judge others, we fear of being judged. We try to act as genuine as possible, yet we fail. 
Each person in this world has his/her dark side which they hide, not only from others but also from themselves. We’re so used to of judging that we have started doing peoples job, we've started labelling our own selves. We live in a dilemma, if we are down, confused and going through a rough day we will never show our real colours  instead we end up faking our feelings.

For instance, if I am sad and down for some reason, I’ll put on a bright smile because that’s my ultimate power tool. I can easily fool others and most importantly myself that I am happy and satisfied, when actually I am not! In the end I’ll end up making worse choices in this state of enigma. But I won’t stop faking around because if I show myself, “What will people think about me?”, “What will people say?”, such thoughts will haunt me
This is what we all are doing to ourselves.

Look around, you’ll find everyone drowned in the sea of problems but like everyone else we’ll judge the book by its cover! Why should we bother giving anyone a hand, like us they are also living a “perfect life”. We are all imperfectly perfect, no matter whatever we are going through we portray that “All Is Well”. Look around you’ll find people fighting from broken hearts to hunger, from illiteracy to racism, from abusive relationships to innocent deaths! If we say that this world is not a good place its most probably because we haven’t done anything to make it a good place. 

We have failed to realize that we all stand on the same dark path, where we can’t see anyone else, we just feel ourselves in the darkness and conclude that its just us in the darkness and we start faking out, like everyone else.
