They say that battles make people stronger; whether they are physical or spiritual. Who defines strength? Who is there to decide whether someone emerges out stronger than before and does that mean they weren’t strong before or is it so that they are just accustomed to it by then and have experienced it before such that things of that nature don’t faze them anymore? Who would be the judge of it all and who sets the standards? At what point are you allowed to ask why? Ask why you are thrust into one battle after another. At what time are you justified to scream ‘Enough!’ What is strength really and till what point can you keep up the delusion and reassurance of it. What happens when you let go, does that mean you failed and aren’t as strong or does that mean that you finally broke the illusion and accepted the broken pieces of your soul as they are. Isn’t being broken better than the false illusion called strength?..

Twenty. A body too young, A mind full of years. Nerds are cool; They make shit happen. "I would leave the cinema after the next-to-the-last-song, and the film would just go on forever. Isn't it wonderful?" - Selma, Dancer in the Dark. Don't take me too seriously; Even I don't.
