If I were an Independent Person I Could Help My Family

If  I were ..!!

If I were an independent person I could help my family. I would solve all their tensions. I wouldn’t let my dad go far from the house leaving us alone at home. I wouldn’t let my mom weep during nights. I would make my parents really proud. I wish, I might.

If I were….

If I earned some money, I would make my parents free from their loans. I would make a small beautiful house for all of us. There would be no six tires on the roof and this time in the rainy season, the wind would not take our tin away from the roof. No water would come in from the holes of our tin. I am gonna change the status of my family.

I would be on vacation. At that time, I would spend days with my parents; listening to my grandma’s nonfiction stories and not letting her do any work in the house. Instead I would make a special tea with milk, cardamom and pepper on it for at least three times a day because we both love milk tea so so much. I would make delicious dishes and watch TV with my family. I would spend all day joking and laughing without any tears in my eyes.

I would let my big brother do his job but no more work for my mom and dad. I would make my small brother an Engineer and be an example to others. In the morning getting ready for the office to my brothers; I would make a special breakfast and would give a big smile wishing for their great day. We would always have a meal together. We all would be happy finding all.

No one would be distracting us. No one would be drunk around me. No one would be arguing. No one would be missing. The only way I want to be is supporting my family. I wish if I could do something for my family.

I am Deepa Bohara from Surkhet- a mid-western part of Nepal. I was born on 1998-04-08. I’ve been living with a chronic illness called Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) for 10 years now. Living with Lupus was never easy for me but I found my internal voice in words. In all that time, I’ve discovered Spoken Word poetry, been one of the winners of “Slamming in Surkhet” in 2013, and participated in the National Poetry Slam 2016. I chose this platform to express myself, share my journey and give a voice to my words. I believe that my feelings are living things and I should never let them die. I’ve become a member of Word Warriors- a Spoken Word Poetry collective in Nepal. I have travelled to more than 8 districts, performing poetry and working with hundreds of students spreading my love for poetry. I am a writer, spoken word poet and a bachelor student of Arts at Patan Multiple Campus, Lalitpur, Nepal. Currently, I have established my own business in my hometown. I am a CEO & Founder of CC Group of Company Pvt. Ltd. an IT company located at Birendranagar-4, Surkhet, Nepal.
