Dreams

To be able to follow through with your dreams and not quit in the process

is truly a precious gift that only those who don’t give up experience.

In a social media driven world

where our thoughts and feelings are being bombarded with fiction and illusions.

To see someone be themselves and share their originality with the world

is a sight to behold and is our birthright

since nobody else can play our role and fill our shoes

It’s only right that we share our gifts and our originality with the world.

Limerick #1

There once was a beautiful queen named Divine

known all over for her kindness and her bond with her people which was intertwined.

Jealousy and Envy were the talk in neighboring towns,

but none of them knew the meaning of generosity but would bicker and frown.

Little did they know that treating others fairly and being sincere was her only sign.

A Lonely Man finds True Love

There was once a man who had never loved anyone before

not even himself ,

and whenever he got into a relationship

things would go sour whenever he was required to explore his feelings or to connect with others on a personal level.

After his umpteen failed relationship.

He wondered what was wrong?

What was holding him back from experiencing the sweet joy of love that all his friends seems to be basking in?

He took counseling, had therapy sessions and even took up yoga,

but he still couldn’t find that thing that would fill the gaping hole in his heart.

After another failed date,

and was making plans on giving up on ever finding love.

He looked at his phone and saw his reflection looking back at him.

A reflection that seem to be asking him a direct question.

He wondered when was the last time he told himself ‘I love you’.

When was the last time he took a moment to better understand himself.

What is love he wondered?

if he hadn’t taken the time to understand what it means for himself.

In the end he finally said ‘I guess love starts with me’.

In Search of Better Days

We all strive for a brighter future

regardless in how dim and dark the present may look.

You have as much right to pursue your dreams as do I,

and We can collectively co-exist to create a world

that’s desperately in need of its dreamers, writers, healers, singers and more.

Why give up on the thing that more precious to the world and to God above,

which is You!

The world is a stage as Shakespeare once said,

and you are the leading light guiding your magnificent story.

It wouldn’t be much of a story if the main character decides not to show up.

Be kind to yourself

and keep going,

the journey doesn’t end and what’s meant to be yours will never leave you.

Love and Kindness

What does love mean to someone whose closed their heart to the world?

What does kindness mean to someone whose given in to bitterness and hate?

As human beings we all go through moments of trial and tribulations.

How we were Yesterday is totally different to how we are Today.

We can be hard on ourselves when we compare our journeys with others,

but that in itself is a disservice to you because no one knows your story more than  you .

We all act as mirrors to each other and reflect what lies hidden within our hearts.

It’s why a warm smile can melt a cold heart and why a hug can bring the Sun out on a cloudy day.

 

 

Attachments

What we love and care the most

is often the one thing we fear losing.

Attachments of any kind

can be a bearer of both joy and sorrow.

Yet through our ingenuity and tenacity

we keep pushing and keep dreaming,

of a time and a place,

where the hard, rigid thorn meets the lovely and vibrant rose,

and the smell is sweet and its touch is warm.

Tribe

In love we seek in others

what we hold dear inside

in order to convey the wishes and hopes that shape our mind.

We all express our feelings and hopes differently,

but yearn to find someone who shares similar hopes and dreams.

It’s the one thing throughout our collective history that has never changed,

which is the desire to dream and to be anything or anyone,

and to find in others, what see in ourselves

and the realization that you finally belong.

Tug of War

Our collective story is filled with the vestiges of the past

for every step we take is a step filled with the results of yesterday.

A yesterday centered on fear of failure or attachments to things we should let go.

It as though the past and the future are at a constant tug of war

and today is caught in the middle

neither letting go of the things that happened before

but still dreaming of a better future that never arrives.

Gratitude

As I head towards the front door on my way to work

I glanced back to say goodbye

but I saw your eyes were shut and hands clasped together as if in prayer.

I wondered why but stopped in my tracks.

I should be glad and feel lucky right,

but I was too selfish to see things from your point of view.

Life is the one constant variable we all share,

but death isn’t one we should willfully ignore.

We come and go in life and hope the steps we are taking

are steps towards something better, joyful and successful.

Yet as I walk out the door

I feel a deep sense of gratitude

because if I learned anything from life is that take nothing for granted.
