Post It #11 Persistence

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On!' has solved and will always solve the problems of human race.

- Calvin Coolidge

Post It #10 - Discovery

Busy as we are finding ourselves
Simultaneously,
We wait to be discovered.

Happiness is..
Finding solace in solitude.

Post It #8 - Exhaustion

Hiding away from world
Till I find enough courage
To put back the fake smile on.

Post It #7 - Choice vs Destiny

It is still called regret
If you would change your decision
And choice you made
Given a chance.
But to save ourselves 
From falling into repentance
We put the blame on Destiny.
Maktoob.

Post It #6 - Twinge

I am not a person who easily accepts defeat. I fight back, do whatever I can. And I did. For a long time. Failed. 

Next, I tried to run away. Escape. But I couldn't.  
Trapped. Caged. Stuck. Frustrated. 

Finally I accepted my defeat. And found an unnatural satisfaction in it. Drowned myself in the mundane routine things. Comforting in its inherent discomfort.

The pain comes back once in a while. Sadness engulfs like a tight hug. I don't have enough strength left to fight back. 

The twinge remains.

Post It #5 - Detest

I hate my job, and that is an understatement. However, its not the work that I hate, its the people I work with. I feel like I work with emotionless robots who come to office, work and leave. And I am the only human survivor who survived some kind of apocalypse and now has to live with these robots. (Dramatic, much?)

I have worked in this office for almost 8 months now. For the first six months, every morning I would cheerfully say good morning to my manager and the people sitting next to me and they would, out of courtesy, mutter a 'morning' without even looking up from their computers. Their response never changed and that changed me as a person. After being disappointed every morning for 6 months, I now come to office all grumpy, do not greet anyone, sit at my disk and sip my morning cup of coffee. 

 I detest this change in me.
