The dead need

I am not scared of dying, or of losing anything. Life is to be lived.
Am not afraid of the inevitable end, but the inevitable similarity.

Its the monotony of life that haunts me.. The living of the same day, everyday.
Its the mechanical act that bothers.
The infinite routine, that destroys.

You walk a thousand miles, and find yourself standing at the same place everyday.
You know that money counts the most and to get it all, you keep walking and walking the same place.


The illness of greed is death. The paycheck slave, a zombi.
Its the living death that is death and the killing of everyday, our end.

( This particular thought was inspired by the act of suburb dwellers in any metro city. Where in, everyday, they take those same routes and trains that lead to same places. The only motivating factor they have is their need for money to carry on with their negligible life.

I found this act very emotionless. Obviously back home, each one of them must be leading different lives. But on the stations, its as if they all wear the same mask. They all are one.

Yet each is on by himself. Fighting against the same problem, not together. But alone. Even in the crowd they are all alone, following their daily routine. Going from home to work to back home.

And I don’t think anything can be changed, until truly desired. But again who will go against the law? This are how things have been going. This is how it is meant to be. This the only right, ideal way to live in a society. To go on minding your own business. Go on living the life we have got. Who thinks about the reason behind these acts? Right? )

What do you think? If given a chance, can you possibly dare to be different? Can you initiate to help change the mentality in any way??

  1. We people ought to think a way out. Everyday, same route, same job, same thoughts, same problems. Hardly anything changes.Can we blame someone for this? nope! Money is that necessity of our lives that makes us be so boring, monotonous. Do we have other better options? Yes, but we hardly stress our brain to find an alternative, right? I mean, there is an infinite source of knowledge in the universe, countless number of ideas! The ideas that are waiting for us to actualize themselves.
    one of your phrases,”.. we need to walk a mile everyday, to travel by a plane one day, and that there is no way to success, other than following the hard way.. ” i think this is not true. There are infinite number of ways to success, that we are not able to see, or not willing to see! when we people are not able to succeed in our endeavors, we develop that philosophy of compromising on our dreams. we start believing in ‘luck’.. When we are tired of doing new things, we say,”this was not written in my destiny”. The reality is that “we are the ones who write our own destiny”
    (with due respect to your writings, this is just one point of view that states Change can be made, if truly desired. Change may be a dangerous thing, but then, ‘routine’ is lethal)
