Mixtape Masterpiece

Making friends is an art I haven’t excelled at. And the few that I manage to make happen to hurt me (or vice versa) for no specific reason. Not their mistake though. I think my expectations from them are unrealistic. Never mind. I am here to create a playlist that describes me. A playlist that may help people understand my psyche (you know the slightly crazy kind that I am). A list that may help people decide whether or not to accept my friendship. So without further ado I present to you the five songs that describe me.

1. The lonely by Christina Perri

I’m a ghost of a girl that I want to be most.
I’m the shell of a girl that I used to know well.

Dancing slowly in an empty room,
Can the lonely take the place of you?
I sing myself a quiet lullaby.
Let you go and let the lonely in
To take my heart again.

2. Talking to the Moon by Bruno Mars

Talking to the moon, tryin’ to get to you
In hopes you’re on the other side talking to me too
Oh, am I a fool who sits alone talking to the moon

3. We are the World by Michael Jackson

We can’t go on pretending day by day
That someone, will soon make a change
We are all a part of Gods great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need

4. Heal the World by Michael Jackson

There’s a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be much
Brighter than tomorrow.
And if you really try
You’ll find there’s no need to cry
In this place you’ll feel
There’s no hurt or sorrow.
There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space, make a better place.

5. That’s the way it is by Celine Deon

When you want it the most there’s no easy way out
When you’re ready to go and your heart’s left in doubt
Don’t give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that’s the way it is

When you question me for a simple answer
I don’t know what to say, no
But it’s plain to see, if you stick together
You’re gonna find a way, yeah

So, those are the five songs that may help you discover the me that I am. Loving I am. Caring I am. Loyal I am. But highly sensitive too. If I’m hurt it takes me ages to recover and walk the road again. Lies and people who judge my actions without the least knowledge of what my life is all about is what puts me off. But then of course everyone has the freedom of expression. So, all in all, everything’s fine by me. Absolutely fine.

  1. Friends are as selfish as anyone else. Only, they are selfish in the pretext of being selfless, and make us believe in their disguise. Friends don’t hurt us. Our unwavering trust in them, when broken, is what hurts.

    1. I guess that’s how it is for most of the people out there. We are indeed afraid of beings friends with ourselves. And that makes us all the more hesitant to be friends with others.
