Despondent Dancing

My head, it was exploding with thoughts. Not the pleasant kind. None that scared me but none that seemed welcoming either. I was standing in the middle of an endless void. I was surrounded by my own reflection. Wherever I looked, I saw myself. It was as if I was trapped in an endless labyrinth…

If my uterus were a person

Hello ya’ll, let me introduce myself to you. It’s not often that I’m given a chance to voice my opinions but now that Agnus has generously given me the opportunity, I’m not going to let it go. So, I’m Lady Uterus. The benevolent and dainty dancer that dwells inside every woman’s pelvis. Well, I stick…

The sublime art of faking confidence

The idea of writing this post struck me when one of my batchmates came up to me and said that if the title “Ms. Confident” existed, I’d be the one she’d vote for without hesitation. I was flattered alright, I’ll be honest with you, but a part of me was pretty surprised by the conclusion…

The buffet theory of hate

It’s been a while, I know. Medical school can get pretty intense and unfortunately, I’ve fallen prey to its talons. But there’s something about this intensity that brings out the “ugly” in people. So, my dear friends, today, I am going to talk about a special species of humans that I have been fortunate enough…

An Ex-cavation of my past

Life moves on. People come and people go. But like I said, life goes on. It’s been a while since I broke up with him. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not bitter or sad about it. Neither do I regret it. Everything happens for a reason and I’m quite certain that there were many such…

Dream

Name a day when the viscid broth wasn’t insipid to my tongue Or recall a night that didn’t lay all the starry secrets bare We are indeed just creatures of the wild Seeking a fragrance that could add meaning to our lives Just another prey to this propoganda of a mundane life I set sail…

Smile

A dandelion seed that had embarked on a journey across the skies Respectfully placed itself on the tip of her tiny nose As her eyebrows furrowed and her nose tickled, She let out a raucous sneeze that caused the seed to flee in search of a better port. As the little birds chirped in frenzy…
