"THE WORDPLAY WARRIOR: Writing for The Unheard Voices"



            “Your stories tend to be so dark and depressing. Why can’t you write happy ones? Are you always this gloomy in real life?”

            I get that a lot. As usual, I just want to laugh. It’s like wondering whether someone who dresses all in black all the time is always into depressing mode.

            Yes, it is true that my stories tend to be so dark and depressing. Can I still write happy ones? Of course yes. I just don’t do that very often. Let that be other people’s job. I’m sure we’ve got plenty already.

            No, I’m not always gloomy. I still know how to be happy because it’s (supposed to be) a personal choice.

            I don’t just write. I believe that I also speak on behalf of the unheard voices.

Once I gave you the signs
that not everything was fine.
The same still happen too many times.

More than once I tried to tell you
this has been more than just my 'nonsensical blues'.
Still, you didn't get a clue.

All those years, I felt like talking to a wall.
Every word I said bounced back like a ball.
When would you get that wake-up call?

So I drifted away,
pretending everything was okay.
What else could I say?

Now you want me to hear you out,
when I've already guessed what it's all about.

It is time that you realized
there is only one way out of this:
Face the music.
Deal with it.
