In a World full of Noises, I belong to Inaudibles.
Ever happened that the one person you want to be with, and who makes you feel special and is perfect for everyone but do not listen to you.
That person could be your Mother, Father, sibling, Bestfriend, Boy/girlfriend, Husband/Wife, anyone. They are important for you, but the only thing they don’t do is to listen. They keep on being good person, yet they lack listening skills and that too just for you, (funny enough!).
The irony is when you are a really good listener and you even listen to their shit talks, anything, in fact, listening to them makes you happy and you love them even more, but they don’t even hear you, listening comes after.
Society says, the greater the wisdom, the silence you become and the feminism quotes “Cheers to Bold Ladies who do not shut themselves up under patriarchy”.
Now, I doubt should I follow any one of them or should I just be me and go with the flow. Should I speak or shut myself all the time or should I decide when to say and when not. Who decides that? Who decides the flow? Who decides these manners?
All I want is to just be me, happy and enjoying my pleasure times, my difficult times. Earlier I was in chaos, but now I have a perspective, a thought, a mood of my own. And I’ll behave the manner I possess.
But I failed! I had my message, I had my perspective, but I failed to communicate, to deliver in a beautiful manner for them to understand. For a moment I thought I did express it perfectly, but I was inaudible. They can hear me but not listen. I am right beside you, I am talking to you, but I was interrupted, because it did not interest them, and it’s nonsense, so I was silenced.
I tried to prove when I was right, and then I tried to stay silenced and let them know I was right, but listening is still what they lack.
Raising voices over and above, do make them visible, but they don’t deserve to get listen to by someone they ignore. Hearing my words but answering as per your perception is not listening. It’s possible that I may speak wrong, but defining whatever I say as incorrect is a perception I do not stand with. They should develop and open their mindset and think, think from different personas.
We inaudible respect your words and listen to you and all we demand is a person who’ll listen to us, but I failed…
…. failed as the one who listens to everyone lacks a one who will listen to him/her.
