Ache and Moan Monologue | Arash

In Ache and Moan Drama Monologue, Arash talks to Robert about why he shouldn’t miss his mother and some realistic views on life.

ARASH: I told you, you come work for me, your life’s gonna be different. I never made no promises, in fact I never make no promises to anyone cause I learned early on that life doesn’t allow you to keep ’em, so why make ’em? All any of us can do is just do what we do, love life, try, and that’s it. Stop bullshitting ourselves and accept the life that’s given to us. Believe me, I was like you once, a long time ago, ha, I was hopeful and dreamy-eyed and always thought in what could be, but after a while it slowly dawns on you that nothing changes, I mean, shit changes but not anything that really moves you out of this place we livin’ in to that other place we all wish to be in. That’s not me being a downer, that’s just real talk. I knew this dude David once…David was a good dude, he was always hustling and grinding, coming up with strategies to think outside the box and make something of himself…for a minute there Dave was actually making me believe in what could be…but, he was a false prophet, some thug that scarred me forever…it all came down hard on me when he went to prison and after some time got murdered behind bars and that was the end of that story, for that brother. Whatever it is you’re thinking, just look life in it’s ugly face and give it the finger, cause that’s all any of us can do.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks!
