I should have listened to my Father, or teachers.

When they said, son, take up a job and life will be fine. I didn’t.

I was naïve with a soul full of dreams.

I listened to me and called myself an Artist.

Fancy right?

Yes, the grass is greener on the other side. what I can do now?

I will just be true to my dream.

Oh fuck! I forgot, I am a freelance artist.

Ya, that’s sounds apt because no studios sign me and my father is not a super star.

Also I gain a day-to-day rejection in a year While others face that in their lifetime.

Oh now don’t be in a hurry to judge me.

No. Am not a courageous person on this planet, I am just talking about the life of an Artist.

So, I will face it and be it.

And my dear Society, pardon me I cant live a life like others, Buy a car, home or achieve some basic necessities of a “Normal Life”.

I am just another narcissist showing off On the social platforms and trying to sell myself,

Telling that life is beautiful and stop calling me a loser.

May be I just live for a moment!

Claps, admiration, appreciation.

They feed my hunger.

And remember, That moment when I made a gesture or rendered a line and your soul is stirred,

that’s the only moment I am close to Enchantment.

Because that small moment, which makes me live a million Lifetimes.
