“Because you are young, you are torn between a world of hate and a world of dreams. So much to lose, so much to gain, so much to fight for, so much to change” (Unknown)Youth and children together, including all those aged 24 years and younger, account for nearly 40 percent of the world's population.In the height of modernity and advancement, it is still very hard to live in today’s world. As youth, we battle the effects of human rights violations, wars, and conflicts. We live on the internet, bu...

Sometimes, I think,I’ve lived too long.Seen a thousand ships sink,But then one floats along.Days pass by,Without any hope.But then comes a tie,Which leads me to cope.Youth has no age,My experience echos.And so I turn a new page,Living everyday,To make a difference.A Poem In Dedication/Awareness Towards World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD), 2018 and Suicide Prevention Awareness Week (10-15 September 2018) Project Semicolon is a global project raising mental health awareness.As an author uses a sem...

As a psychology major currently in university, I have always been interested in mental health – its stereotypes, its emerging need, and finally its awareness and acceptance. Why should we ignore mental health, if we pay attention to its physical counterpart? Isn’t the mind also an organ?Thinking about it, asking for any sort of help isn’t an easy task. Although we are social humans, we like to be self-dependant and sometimes we come into denial about the help we need. Partly, we may be held back...

“Enjoy your youth, you’ll never be younger than you are at this very moment”Let us start this discussion with a reminder that time is valuable, and today, matters more than yesterday, or tomorrow. Let us not hesitate to believe that our past cannot hold us back, for the future. Youth have been the inception of all things great – over the years, we see youth, not only behind the scenes, but at the frontlines of change.If youth are the trustee of prosperity, then why can’t they be provided the com...

Love gives you wings, They sing. But if its two souls intertwined, That you define. The flight, Is nothing but a cheap glint. Love is but a dream, It’s never weak But a peak, On the horizon’s seams. Love in not only for two, But for a chorus, Of a never ending sheet. It is a united beat, Of every heart in synch. In love there is nothing, About your racist thinking. And it is love, Which defines, A united globe. It is a stove. For success. If only you knew, Or com...

Young enough to know, Old enough to act, Understanding what the world has lost, To set the revival of all lost, Hope. Youth is in me, and in you too. We are young enough to try be ignored, But old enough to keep our grounds. We understand that the future, Is all in our hands. And if there is any holding on, It awaiting the revival, Of all things lost, Youth will conquer.

The world is a sphere,Two partitions.Life's a car,Two people behind its wheel.Then why a bar,In between equality?A 50-50 world,Broken into pieces. Favoritism,Accelerating a drift,Between two seas.Drowning the pave-stones,To success,How do they expect,To get some of the best?"There are no men,Without women,As there is no women,Without men" When this realization is broken,All tokens turn to tides.And into an outcry,A revolution roars,To Press for Progress.To attain your dreams,To turn your beacons...

My mind, Joins your stride. Every early morning, You abide, The same routine. They taunt, Us flaunting, To a higher stage. While they wait, On the side-lines, Afraid. Be bold, Instead of cold, It’s never too late to change your lanes. Life only gives you signals, It is you who has to find, The Lost Success.

We are in the age of beauty,In the age of fitness,And all things "mighty".But what's mighty,If we build walls?If we can be 'social',But hide our emotions?How can we stand tall,With the wrong notions,As our status?We all talk,But what needs to be spoken,Is kept silent.We are no longer an amalgam,But each to oneself,Is a galaxy,Spiraling away,From discovery.We cocoon our ideas,In fear of the air.Our souls are chained,By the silence.Into a hollow darkness,We were almost doomed,By the unspoken. But...

    "Soulfully, A Butterfly" is an aim to project psychology into the modern world whilst eradicating stigma towards mental health. As a Psychology major, I hope to advocate psychology as a key to success in life. * A pseudonym is used to present an unbiased voice solely aimed to conquer our souls - a voyage in which everyone can undergo.
