Do you dare…

Do you dare to be yourself

when the world is faking it up,

Do you dare spending time alone,

when everyone is busy socializing,

Do you dare to travel solo 

when many groups are planning so many trips,

Do you dare to question yourself,

where the world wants to question everyone else, every politician, every celebrity, every government,

Do you dare to be truthful

where people are lying to themselves,

Do you dare to express yourself

where people are finding reasons to open up,

Do you dare to find yourself

where people have already lost themselves,

Do you dare to accept the past & move on

or join the increasing number of victims of depression,

Do you dare to appreciate someone

when everyone is hungry for praise & starving for appreciation,

Do you dare to be flawed

when everyone aims for perfection,

Do you dare to confront

rather than letting things go,

Do you dare to prioritize

and follow them straight,

Do you dare to selflessly help someone,

where the world is being selfish,

Do you dare to think beyond money & material ,

Do you dare to follow yourself ,

where everyone is following everyone ???

      1. Yes, you know I could not be more agree to what you have written in every sentence. It makes sense from start to end and I wanted to appreciate as well as put my extra thoughts but I stepped back.


      2. Aisehi, I’m going through phase where I don’t want to dare. Don’t want to put my input over thoughts, lifestyle of others, somehow they tend to differ and not all people out there are capable of handle criticism. Looks like all want to see only comments in favor of them. I’m thinking of not making any comments on any blog from now on.

      3. Thoughts , opinions will always differ. That doesn’t mean to stop expressing. Such platforms are meant to share your views, opinions and thoughts. 🙂
        Take care.

  1. This made a delightful read. The insight and the thoughts that went into writing this were beautiful, I loved the whole poem. It brings out the different facades of a person’s behavior with their friends and when they’re alone, it pours light on people’s ideas and the pressure that they may be under. It was a realistic view of what you may dare but you would not do, for whatsoever reason.

  2. This is so very “straight from the heart”. Very well written and it sort of sets one straight about whether they are living it right or not. Keep up the lovely work on your blog. Enjoying the nature trails and thanks for the follow.

    I blog mostly at actually. Come over there for the good stuff. 🙂
