Have you ever wondered where the time went? How just yesterday you were playing in your preschool playground and now you're making your way through high school?Strange, Isn't it?Why does time never seem to slow? Why does it only speed, faster and faster until we hit our final stop in the journey that is life? I think that sometimes the journey is so long that we often worry about the road ahead, as opposed to focusing on what is in front of us. That's why sometimes we miss a chance to look at th...

Weird title, I know. Just stick with me.First impressions, one of the most important moments in meeting someone new. They'll get a sense of your personality, your 'aura.' But you want to know something sad? Those all important first impressions, they don't exist anymore. Why? One word.Judgement. When we see someone we judge them. It's been etched into our brains for generations now. A simple characteristic such as one's hair or one's outfit can influence all our opinions of them. They don't need...

The letters dance.They do incomprehensible things.They jumble together, coexist together.They mock me, they taunt me, for I cannot belong with them.The words are of another world.A world I have not yet travelled to.They are beautiful and complex.They hold meanings I fail to grasp.I long to be a part of that world.I long to understand the estranged pencil marks I see.I long to create, I long to express.I long to dance with the letters. I want to be their friends.I dream to read, to write.But it i...

Why did you do what you did,hurt what you hurt,touch what you touched Didn'tyou think that I was scared?That I didn't want your hands,roaming, exploring, prodding? Youmelted me until I was water,burned me until I was steam.Left me invisible and broken,a piece of dust swept under the carpet.But what about the other one?Why didn't you...

I have brown skin. My arms, my legs, my hands, my face, they're all brown. When I was a little girl, all I ever wanted was to be like the other kids. White. To tell you the truth, I just wanted to be anyone but myself. I was the only brown kid in the entire grade which kind of sucked. I was laughed at for my name, my 'accent', and everything else that that made me different from the other kids. I can't say I was ecstatic to be different. My mom tells me that when I was little I got mad at her an...

When my cousins and I decided to walk down to the market for ice cream one day, I truly thought nothing of it. I shrugged on a t-shirt and pair of shorts and skipped out the door with the thought of a nice cold treat awaiting me in the blistering Indian sun. As we walked along the sidewalk, I started to feel slightly uncomfortable.You know that feeling where you get the sense that someone is watching you? Well, that's how I felt. I turned around to find a man staring at me, eyes glued to my behi...
