The weirdos, the damaged souls, the loners, the silent


More often than not,

the weirdos are better than normal people
happy in their own company
with larger hearts and more tolerance
and no desire to hurt another being

the damaged souls are better than the intact ones
they have been to hell and pulled themselves back
having weathered the worst of storms
theirs are the truly victorious spirits

the loners are better than social animals
selectively social, avoiding the drama, the cosmetics
when they talk, you know the words are genuine
and nothing is at a superficial level

the silent, quiet types are better than the talkative, loud types
secure in their own self, knowing their own worth
they don’t need the theatrics or the support of noise
and still waters do run deep

May god bless the weirdos, the damaged souls, the loners,the silent
They are, more often than not, the bravest souls
They are the dreamers, the imaginators, the generous souls

I belong to Dehradun but now live in a new city after every two years, being an army wife. This uprooting of base every couple of years, setting up a new home in a new place, meeting new people and forging new friendships, exploring new cities; all this ensures that I go through and am blessed with a myriad of experiences.

    1. Great to hear from you, Maám. I was wondering about your absence from the social media. Hope you are doing well and in the pink of your health. Thank you so much for your appreciation and such encouraging words. I look forward to your feedback.


  1. The world is the perfect place for imperfect people! No wonder then its better to know a handful of people with flaws than those who profess to be perfect.
    A profound expression, Sapna.
