And before I knew it, I had hit send. What did I do? How couldn't I not read it before I sent it? What would she think of it now? And how would I know what she'll think? So many questions, and no answers.

So this was supposed to be a normal conversation between us. Then how could I send that message? Why did I type that in the first place? Things have never been better between us. We were so getting along. And now this? Why did I do this to myself? Why did I do this to her? What would be her reaction now? Will she ever talk to me again? Will she listen to me?

If she does talk to me tomorrow, she's sure to bring this up. What should be my explanation? Was I out of my mind? That I did not think before sending? Would she believe me? Why shouldn't she? I am a good guy. I've never done anything bad to anyone. So i shouldn't be worried, right? So why am I worried? What have I done?
This conversation was not supposed to end like this. What was I thinking? Was I thinking at all? Oh god! She's never talking to me again. Should I send another message? She would be expecting me to apologize for this. I should definitely send another message to her. Wait! What if she's infuriated and wouldn't respond? What should I do then? Should I call her instead? Or should I wait for sometime? Should I wait till morning?

She hasn't responded to me yet. She's definitely angry. And I am definitely in a soup. How could I be so foolish? Why didn't I think this through? What can I do? I am so s...........

(And he falls asleep. All because he sent '....k'. How dare he end a conversation with his girlfriend with 'k?'

I am the Y-generation

I am today's man. I am a no nonsense person.

I can think for myself. I need lesser suggestions and yield more results. I have a vision. I possess the knowledge to fulfill that vision. I stand for what is right. I hate hypocrisy. I long for logic and hate superstitions. I respect the concept of god but I hate using him as a tool to explain my success and my failures. I love my parents but hate being told what to do. I respect my elders but hate them telling me what is right. I need proof for facts otherwise they are just opinions to me. I have an opinion and not afraid to air it.

I love my country but hate the way it is run. I love my schools but hate the way the subjects are taught to me. I love my gadgets and the technology. I have a conscience and know what is right and wrong. I respect traditions but open to new ideas. I respect the concept of religion but hate it dictating terms for me. I want to carve my path on my own terms and would hate to be stopped or hindered by anyone.

I am the Y-generation. I am ageless and my ideas are timeless. I have ethics and I am bound by them. I respect your stand and I understand what you must do. I only expect to be understood in return and not be questioned on everything I do. Tell me what to do and not how to do. I have my flaws but I rather embrace them than hide them. 

I am not perfect and I like it that way.  I may not be everything you hoped for, but I am still the future. And if you give me a chance, I can prove my worth. You may be surprised!

To love with hate

You buried and you left
your secrets in my skull.
You took away what was mine
and left me in a lull.
You wrecked my haven,
Leaving me in despair
You took away everything I had
Forgetting what we share 

 You forgot what you stood for;
the crisis of the untold
The voice of the voiceless
Now has been sold?
The memories constrained
 And you behold,
What is left of me
And the pieces I hold.

The dead memories and your secrets
have become a part of me
You turned me into what I hated
 I am what you wanted to see.

Take away all your lies
I can't hold them anymore.
 They rip me into shreds
This is what you loved me for?
Release off the harness
You've put me in.
Crack open my skull
Let me dissolve within.

I want to break free
of the shackles I'm in
Just so you know,
I lose, you win.
But remember the wrong
What doesn't kill
Just makes me more strong!
