City of Unnoticed lumps

Published by Hafsa Ahmed on

Even in the massive crowd,
and under dozens of neon lights
and lighted street lamps,
Even among the loud chants
of basket-laden sellers
of cheap toys and snacks,
desperately needing the people’s attention,
Even among the sounds
of cutlery and frying pans
from smoky food stalls
bearing newly painted banners
about their delicious foods
in very reasonable price;
I still hear the silence
of my heartbeat
and unspoken loneliness
which still cages me
in dark isolation
despite that the city
is crowded with the greasy apartments
and the newly constructed towns
and the pamphlets,
bragging about the
futuristic projects in pipeline
for Connecting people together
calling them “our home”.
So, pity me,
that even in the noise,
I still hear whispers.

Loneliness drifts us away from the light and positivity. It gets us near to darkness and make us feel numb, deaf, and away from the reality. It makes us think that even there are thousands of people in this world, no one really cares about us.

Sadness is what we fear, we tend to overthink because of the loneliness that consumes us.

The loneliest people are the kindest.
The saddest people smile the brightest.
Means that the soul that sees
beauty may sometimes walk alone.
Think that may be they designed to be alone.

Being drowned by loneliness and getting isolated by the darkness is an unending maze wherein you dont know where to start and where to end it. It is really sad that we are alive outside but we are also dying inside. When sadness and loneliness strikes we tend to isolate ourselves, hoping to be found.

I think this is all about the loneliness that the main character is feeling. He is anxious knowing that in a crowd of many people, he is battling with life, all by himself.

Its just so sad that even there are things that can give light to your life, it just happen that you are trapped in your own darkness. Even how hard you worked for it and yell it out at your best, people can’t seem to hear you nor see you.

I can relate it with our society today. I think this symbolizes the forbidden and unheard protests of the people who used to fight for what is right. In terms of the government today, those who are in the position to lead the country tend to manipulate the truth by providing the mass, and exposing them with a lot of false facts to please and encourage them to get their hearts. Good example is the upcoming election, these familiar faces who are currently running still have the guts to run even though they were involved on an unethical acts before.… Read more »

I can picture the happenings of today. The whispers symbolize the unheard protests of the people who fight for what they believe in, up until now. The cries of the victims.

Being alone is different from being lonely. Loneliness is a feeling of empitiness, and the feeling continues until we forget our purpose in life; we get lost and unhappy. So when we feel this kind of feeling, it is better to seek the people we love the most that we know, will never leave and judge us.

People think that loneliness is the scariest pit we could ever delve into. Even though there are a million reasons to smile, some people still can’t cure the sadness and the feeling of being left out completely. Yes, we can hide the pain, the scars and the unending sorrows with laughs and smiles, but at the end of the day whatever we hide will still show up. But fear not for we are given the assurance that all our pain and suffering are temporary. Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for… Read more »

Despite of the noises we heard outside, we still hear our sadness deep within our heart. But don’t let our sadness eat you. Make a move, divert your attention and be with the people you love.

Even though we are surrounded with a very joyous aura of people we cannot hide the fact that we are lonely. There are times when loneliness creeps in to us and it affects us big time. Sometimes when we feel a hint of happiness we question ourselves if it’s genuine. And it is very hard to deal with it especially when we feel hopeless. That is why the saying “fake it till you make it” sometimes has a good outcome. It gives us the chance to continue without thinking about our problems. That in the long run we will realize… Read more »
