Letter To Future Self (2020)

Dear Future Self,

Today I subliminally break overwhelmed with emotions, burning with a sole desire that perhaps… someday, you’ll use these words to mend your shattered soul.

Others may see you as a walking enigma, they may judge & mock your emotional scars. You may encounter people who’ll curl themselves as sugar-coated parasites when you’ll extend your helping hand to them. There will be people who’ll call you as their inspiration but instead, they’d be the first ones to turn their backs on you, walking away ignoring your tear-stained face. Some people who believe in you, would perhaps unknowingly break you with the weight of their expectations. Your heart may bleed, being impaled with your endless insecurities, while descending in darkness. You might feel like a hopeless loser sometimes.

Dear future self, life is inevitably depressing sometimes, but learn to wear your emotional scars with pride. Your scars are proof that you had bled, but at the same time, you survived. Regardless of how fake the other person might be, always unflinchingly extend a helping hand. For sandalwood doesn’t allow the nearby venomous snakes to corrupt the goodness of its fragrance.

Several years ago, keeping responsibility as your psychological fundamental you chose to be the iceberg that wouldn’t melt in the heat of the moment. Keeping compassion as your guiding principle you chose to be the shield that’ll protect your loved ones from the sinful spears of life. If your heart cries & bleeds in darkness, make sure to use your blood & tears to write a poem that makes others smile with a sense of hope. Your existence will always be defined by the decisions you make… So always have the integrity, to be understanding & dependable…

Lastly never forget, that perhaps you were scarred with dark tormenting nightmares so that you heal others with the light of your poetic dreams. Perhaps you were blessed with hate so that you understand the value of love. Perhaps sometimes you feel lost as a hopeless loser so that you discover the rampant warrior within you!

Yours Truly,
Present Self

Note: Today is my birthday & amidst the rapture of the glorious well wishes I found a few minutes of silence to pen down these thoughts. I have always seen myself obsessed with an aspiration to learn & grow, but yes I’m a human being; I am bound to fail & fall. It’s at such depressing junctures of life, that I hope my words would remind me what I truly believe in.Β Β

    That takes a lot of courage.. everyone can’t do that.. that’s what i admire in you.. maybe i realised this too late.. but yea .. it ain’t easy to write words of hope when you’re feeling low..

    Loved your posts! You’ll always be my inspiration! πŸ’›πŸ’›

    1. I’m truly humbled by your kind compliment. I try to spread positivity in whatever way I possibly can!

      PS: if you notice in the letter I mentioned about some people who see me as their inspiration, just wondering if that’s like a subtle warning that you intend to turn your back on me in the near future. πŸ˜‚ Lol jk. Thank you for your kind words!


      1. Brilliant glad to know that. You are one of the few people whom I truly trust. If you were to ever turn your back on me… I’d probably turn into something like a Kabir Singh version of myself. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ I respect you for who you are and the bond we share. Please never change, you are just perfect the way you are! πŸ™πŸ˜


  4. Happy birthday Sid!

    I sense certain sadness which has probably crept in due to the reality of life which you could see through or identify through your experiences. I had and to some extent still have similar frustrations/disappointments but then I have realized and try to adhere to the mantra of – do what I believe is right and not expect the world from what you have exposed it of its wrongdoings. Just smile and pitty on the hypocrisy around.

    Good writing!

  5. Happy belated birthday Sid!
    You are wise beyond your years! 🌸
    I loved your post!
    Remember one thing,… all of us go through hurdles in life. Some insane and some downright intolerable. But on the upside… we all come out stronger. Much stronger than before. And knowing you and your lovable personality, you will grow to be an even better man, in the years to come. Our experience moulds and fine-tunes us. Much love!

      1. Yes until then I just play with my whimsical words & rhymes. I may have to imprison my body but nothing can imprison my thoughts. I may not be able to shake hands physically with my friends and other followers whom I meet in real life but hopefully my words will continue to touch their lives in some way. πŸ˜…

      1. You certainly are not alone. We might not be in the same boat but yes we surely are in the same ocean. Your existence, your thoughts and your voice does matter. You aren’t a lost star in this universe, instead my precious never forget that, you are a blooming universe within a star.β€οΈπŸ™‚
