Rise

Back in the deserts there was a kingdom of floras, every flora magnificent than the other, except for the very last one who was habituated on the edge of the road. She was the simplest amidst all. While all others were busy glimmering in their sweet colors and fragrance after the touch of rain, she decided to stare at the sunshine and moonlight wondering how to sparkle the world around her. Due to her distance she chose in both the homing and thoughts, she would often be undervalued and criticized by the other beauties and as well by most in the kingdom.

As the seasons passed by the kingdom kept blooming, in their colors and perfume and every flora was noticed more than before. On the other hand, the little one on the edge worked to burrow her roots strong and expanded, expanding everyday to get one crawl closer to the road she gazed at. And for this she had to face her mud every day, damaging the littlest corner of her petal and burrowing her scent in her roots. For this, she was often seen as a disgust, too little and too low by the rest of the floras. Even the breeze those flew by, decided not to touch her for days, except for a very light breeze once. This breeze smelled her fragrance she burrowed and wanted to be the only one to touch and feel it so it decided to visit her every day. Whilst all other breezes would flatter the movements of the gentle petals of other floras, this breeze only visited her telling her how different of a charm she was. There were days she wouldn’t let the breeze puff her, but there came days when she began to enjoy dancing in the breeze’s blow and just when she would let the breeze have a small taste of her aroma, something happened…

With every other breeze, this breeze decided to change its direction towards the kingdom and never showed up again. This change of course damaged that little diligent into weak and gloominess. The other floras had one more reason to taunt her again. Her roots were splintering and her road seemed far by. She wouldn’t look at the sunshine and moonlight for days and seasons.

Then one night, suddenly came a storm. The entire kingdom, all of its beauties blown away, off their roots at once! Except they failed to spread their strength at the one at the far edge, although she was shivering out of fear and cold, she decided to stand straight and fight back the storm that night. She fought and fought until the sun showed up and it was all warm once again.

She looked back at the sunshine and smiled and waited till the light filled her up once again. She stood shattered but brave, she stood broken but bold. She stood only to realize that the storm she fought spread her fragrance, now throughout the desert. She stood only to see that road she wanted to reach was now beneath her rooted feet. She stood only to realize that once again she newly Rose.

Who knows where you have been, how you made it this far. Who knows the pain of the travel yet who knows the joy of the sunshine and moonlight. Who knows, but You, the contentment of rising.

The wildest, stand strongest

You will find people often telling you that it takes strength and wisdom to let go, sadly many miss out the fact that it takes up more dedicated strength, wisdom and a stronger faith to hold on. Hold onto what you believe. Because success isn’t just about working hard, but is mostly relied on your faith, it’s about fighting in what you believe while the world tries to pull you down!

While the world says its torn stories to you, make yourself the unique one and tell the world what you and your faith has won. It is not a gift every soul is blessed with but the ones who are, it took them a lot to gain it. It took them Patience, Determination and Perseverance. Like every diamond is made out of extreme heat and pressure and it is then you see it shine bright, Faith is what causes a being to stand out in the crowd and be one of its kind. It’s true, letting go of things that which do not serve you anymore requires a lot of courage and pain but striving for something you believe is not everyone’s cup of tea! Because you fight for it to hold on, you wait for it with your sheer patience that you will make it till the end, you are more than just determined. You have kept your faith, and in on reaching the end, it’s all worth the wait.

“Faith is the art of holding onto things in spite of your changing moods and circumstances.” C.s Lewis

Nobody is going to believe you, because they don’t wear your shoes and do not blame them if they don’t. It is your journey and it is you have to make it. It is you who is blessed with the inimitable eminence. So have faith, you will make it, inshaAllah!

“Commence your journey with Faith, walk through it with Patience and win it by your Perseverance”- Saaj

It’s never too late

I settled myself to give up seeing the darkness around. Feared, I lost and wouldn’t make it anymore any further. I decided to let it go. I decided to walk off, but realized why would I relinquish what is mine? Why would I let disappear of the most beautiful dream I had? If I were one step closer then, I will begin my journey all over again.

Start over, doesn’t matter if you have fallen or been thrown. The world wouldn’t remember if you were dead, it will only remember if you rose.

Most of us only dishearten ourselves by recollecting the memories of how we lost. Very few have the strength to rise up from the ruins and get themselves termed as the heroes. All you need is to believe. Believe in yourself. Believe in the strength you are gifted with.

It’s pretty and simultaneously funny how people say, “You don’t know how strong you are unless being strong is the only option you have”. Well they will keep saying and trust me they have a lot to say! And that is exactly why they are here! What you need to learn is to show them the Ray of Hope you found within yourself when they were busy “saying”, the Ray of Mercy and the Ray of Faith you lit in you while they might have told you to give up and move on. Show them the ruins are yours and if you could build it of nothing, you can always re-build out of something, out of the remains you have left.

Start over, from all that was damaged and diminished.
Start over because it’s your choice.
Start over because you believe in it
Start over because it’s never too late!
