Born a fighter
A deep roar flowing through her
#flowing #MayCBFChallenge #3LinesADay
Dear Dr. V,
My mom has been suffering from cancer from a very long time now.
And now, i have been drained of all my energy, hope and patience.
Words really don't help now.
" Do u believe in love at first sight?"
She nodded ,and said " i do,coz many spring back ,someone started loving me like that!!"
She smiled as she remembers her mother ...
Love u ma..
If I cry my whole life,
Will it ensure my people will be happy in the future?
If I starve myself to death,
Will it ensure my countrymen will get food to eat?
Will my frightened eyes and soul,
Ensure my people a fearless tomorrow?
Ma, if I don't sleep at all,
In return will my brothers get peaceful slumber?
Will my burning body and dreams,
Be the final destruction you and the people ever witness?
I am willing to sacrifice myself,
If it guarantees a safe and joyous ever after....
(A Syrian child talking to his mother when he sees her crying and praying for his safety.)
Real women are strong, resilient, independent, loyal and lovable. One thing about them is they know they deserve better.
Her eyes see me
For who I am
And when she speaks
She makes me feel
As if I am
The only person
In her world. JD
*Mom* (from a child's view)
She was a slut
Everyday she bled
Sometimes to exist
Sometimes to prove existence
She never lived
Though she always wanted to
Had a desire of family
Reality made her more lonely
Her desires tied around her heart
When they untied her dress
She was naked as nature
And hunted as earth
Never said a word
Or she never had a word
It is a stigma
A mind's mentality that
All women're helpless.
I refuse to exploit tragedy in exchange for praise.
Victims of recent acts of violence will be honored and remembered.
Implying threats against those who trespass against us will not change the past.
Lost lives cannot be brought back. Attacks can be prevented, but is antagonization of our enemies the appropriate response?
All are entitled to their opinions.
Of the many things I do not condone is profiting from events that have taken place recently.
As I write this, my mother's words are heard in my head.
Parents symbolize love!
For them, their children are their greatest and most priceless possession.
Their hearts are filled with warm love and tender care forever.
Things change, people change, but a mother's love and father's care is forever, and after.
As you grow up, remember that they are growing old too.
You learnt to walk holding their fingers, they might need you hand to walk soon.
Don't test the power of your words, on the people who taught you to speak.
Their possessiveness is what defines their love;
They have given up most of their dreams, and desires just so they could see you smile;
You never know what they have been through to make you what you are today.
They'll never tell you i...
Silent but strong she started to carry herself through all the ups and downs of life.
Nothing but regret had grown in her heart. Pain, heartbreaks,back bitching, etc became part of her daily life routine. Now honest people scare her more as for her the one with elegance is the one who will kill you with charm and trust. Meeting new people interacting with them was just a part of her work routine otherwise being alone and trusting no one is the only way to live for her. That one dark side of Love and she feels she can never be loved by anyone , she is not meant for love. But who will make her understand a person can be wrong but Love cant be. She still weeps with a hope that one fine day he ...
He (son): Mom! Why do we light candles on cake during birthdays?
She (She smiles & pull his cheeks gently) Becaauusssseee, you when children come into our life, you light our world. You bring all happiness, joy & positivity in our (Parents) life. Looking at the part of us for the first time & welcoming him into this world, celebrating each joy & sadness with them, this love needs way much longer time for you to understand. You won't understand that joy now. Once you'll have your own baby, you'll experience it on your own. It's inexpressible.
He: (he gave a confused expression as he couldn't understand her exp...
Crumpled bloody sheet,
Bruised face, body still in the heat.
Lots of people wait to see,
None a wise man, willing to set her free.
A hurt heart and a wounded soul,
Pitiful glances and a blanket rolled.
Justice a far fetched dream,
Months dragged by, all that was heard was her screams.
Belly growing, a petrifying jolt to reality.
Choices to make, over a glass of tea.
Choosing to give life a hard choice,
Her voice shut down, why stop a tiny new noise?
Small feet make way for a new dawn,
A year of new life and here the birthday candles are blown.
I love to watch my babies sleeping
The peacefulness on their faces
As I watch them I get tears in my eyes
I created them
They came from me
What a blessing
It amazes me to this day how women have lives forming inside of them
I do all I can to ensure they're good
I'd starve so they can eat
Cry just to see them laughing
Whatever it takes
Sacrifice for them
Without them my life would be pointless
I don't understand how a mother can just abandon their offspring
How can a woman choose a man over their baby
Or hurt and mistreat them
It's hard being a parent but instincts take over
Being a mother to my children is the best thing I've ever done in life
No manual or instruc...
The Sun is down
Moon behind the cloud.
Stars are lost.
It is time.
This time is mine.
To get up,
Dust my pants,
To stretch my stiffs
To put away the myths.
Let me flex my neck.
Nobody became a great woman by walking on roses
Or embroidering them.
This is the time.
This time is mine
To walk the roads,
All roads difficile.
Each crack will heal,
When I stand there,
Beyond the horizon.
Looking at the next fort
I ain’t aiming for a pinnacle
I ain’t a small girl,
I am a woman,
A woman of my own.
Who is an iron lady?
She is the one who is so rugged that when her husband has to leave for his duty she becomes the shield of her family. Oh yes! Her husband is a military officer. The one who protects the country so that his country people can live in harmony, leaving his own beloved family.
How robust would be she who has to handle everything on her own. Be it her childrens' all responsibilities or her in laws duty, even the toughest work has to be managed by herself. She is brave, she is bold. She manages everything with a smile on her face though inside she is worried, anxious that how her husband would be right now! Is he alright? Or had he wounded himself? It is so daunting that her hu...
Even though I am far from you
I will always wrap you up
in blankets of prayers,
Dress you up in
Make you sit on
a balanced chair,
Hold your hand
when in despair,
I'll be there with you
each and every day
until I am gone;
then I'll cut my
soul into thousand pieces
to form a constellation
so as to light your path.
Sun loved and moon kissed
She has beauty unrivaled
Adored and revered
For all that she is and does
And being true to herself.

It was when your tiny hand touched my cheek ,
your doe like eyes shining bright where all i can see is myself ,
the way your tiny pink lips curved into a toothless grin,
The way the sound of you uttering " mumm"
Made my heart skip a beat,
The way the moment i held you close i realized it felt complete. You didn't have to be my age or a guy to be my other half. All you had to do was to smile back and utter mum for you to guide me back home .......
