I'm half awake
I'm half asleep
Bloom to soon
Claim to dream
Plead to breathe
My soul is at stake
Love, please say my name...
Narrated Jabir bin `Abdullah: The Prophet ﷺ used to stand by a stem of a date-palm tree while delivering a sermon. When the pulpit was placed for him we heard that stem crying like a pregnant she-camel till the Prophet ﷺ got down from the pulpit and placed his hand over it.
- Sahih Bukhari Vol 2, Book 11, Hadith 42.
"Learn to be quiet just as you learn to talk, because if talking guides you, being quiet protects you. By being quiet, you attain two characteristics: you are able to take knowledge from those more knowledgeable than you and you are able to repel the ignorance of those more ignorant than you."
I missed the bus today.
My only companion
Through grumpy mornings
And drunken nights.
So, I took the train.
An unfamiliar sight.
But, I could see
A familiar one.
You, standing a few meters apart.
Listening to your favorite music
Which made you smile.
I don't know what should I do.
Should I give you a shy smile?
Or perhaps, an ignorant response?
We gazed at each other's eyes.
Just like we knew what's on our minds.
Like a neophyte,
No one else could ever understand.
Life is not about
surviving a storm
but about how to "
"dance in the rain".
It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: "Do not curse the wind, for it is from the mercy of Allah, bringing Rahmah (i.e., rain and breezes), or destruction. But ask Allah for its goodness, and seek refuge with Allah from its evil."
-Susan Ibn Majah Vol. 5, Book 33, Hadith 3727
Caí rendida tras noches de insomnio mirando el clamor de la luna llena que se coló a través de mis pupilas para otorgarme la paz de su luminiscencia.
Sólo ella era capaz de apaciguar mis sentidos, de serenar mi alma e invadir mi corazón con sus buenos presagios.
Mi mente inquieta y vulnerable al arte de pensar incesante se contagió con rapidez de esa calma que me inundaba de pronto. Y mis párpados cayeron pesados con la lentitud de una eternidad y la premura de una corta canción de cuna.
Así, arrullada entre los alargados brazos de la luna y escuchando la melodía de las estrellas que para mí cantaban esa noche conquisté el mundo de los sueños.
Mi primera aventura surgió a bordo de un flam...
That day with you on the bridge
With the piercing beauty around
I stole a glimpse from your eyes
Of the home that we never found
And in the fragments of my words
All of those I ever uttered to you
Was an underlying truth so naked
Of the feeling that I never said you
That together when we struggled
Then I cared less what was around
For I was searching for it so long
And you're the home I never found
I'm laying on my bed unable to sleep, and I found myself thinking as usual about love stories, I believe in soulmates, I believe that no matter what someday all of us will be next to our soulmate, just together, it doesn't matter what you're doing, you'll know, just by looking at them, that you want to spend as much time with them as possible, and maybe have your own fairytale and end up together happily ever after.
They say love conquers all. And no matter how hard it could be, if love is true, it will still hold on despite of all the circumstances that may come along...
I met him in an almost dying summer. It was the beginning of autumn. It wasn't love at first sight, I knew. (I don't believe in it, either.) It may be attraction. Yes! I was attracted the moment I saw his face and gestures. And when I got a chance to be with him, it was like I knew him for a long time.
Being with him, I became vulnerable and spontaneous. I enjoyed every single moment that could last for a lifetime. I don't mind being so carefree and inevitable. I don't mind on what other people's saying for as long as I'm happy.
Knowing what is love,
is the most enlightened thing
that can happen to anyone.
It will let you things to come and go;
to be as supple as the wind.
And take everything that comes
with great courage.
Like a good friend once told me:
"Life is right in any case,
My heart is as open as the sky."
Yesterday was kind
Will you be the same?
I've done my best today for the next
The demons are resting for now, playing around with others .
Be sweet and candy will be your treats
Don't break your stride. People will try to trip you up. Step aside let them pass you and keep moving on.
The future looks brighter than ever.
Let me grab my shades.
You give and you give
Time's got you too tired to live.
You need to save your sanity
You need a breather,
Restore your faith in humanity.
Kick off your boots
and run free for awhile
Laugh real hard and put on that smile
Throw some beer in a cooler
And head out the door.
Breathe that fresh air
and sit your ass along the shore.
Grab your people and let loose,
light some sticks in a bonfire,
Put on some good ole country music,
No preaching to the choir.
Life is for living
Leave all that stress behind
Know who's worth giving
In the daily grind.
JUST A THOUGHT...
Walking through the darkness, I'm wondering once again.
Am I dark or light? Am I good or am I just hiding my evil side?
I came from the above and infinite.
I am not inclinated to no one side
and I don’t need to pretend to be normal, I AM JUST ME.
I choose the side of life
but I don’t understand why I’m still here.
Surrounded by smoke and ashes;
with my bare feet
passing through a fearsome volcano;
feeling those hot and pointy rocks.
Felling that burning breeze that caresses my whole face
and which makes my hair move around.
How can I shine with so much chaos around me?
I can scream but no one can hear me.
I can cry diamonds instead of tears but nobody is there to at leas...
