240. I hope you never fear death because you know you lived each day to its fullest.

Human beings, poets, writers, all.
We have named the end in metaphor in every possible way.
From religion to modern day science, everyone's got something to say.

I met myself at the bar the other day. She looked 18, and dressed up and hid her dark circles well with laughter.

I ran into myself at 22, wearing a get up that hid all the scars. Neat lines of bandage across her heart.

I watched from across the road, as I hailed a cab at 35, wearing a blood red power suit, daring the world to say No. For anything.

57 crept up over a dinner date, my second husband got us a camping tent and tickets to the Thar...

"Holding on" wouldn't be tough if there weren't 'Hopes' and 'Expectations'

- the nomad pen.

Hurray for Hollywood

Protest

By: Ella Wheeler Wilcox

To sin by silence, when we should protest,
Makes cowards out of men. The human race
Has climbed on protest. Had no voice been raised
Against injustice, ignorance, and lust,
The inquisition yet would serve the law,
And guillotines decide our least disputes.
The few who dare, must speak and speak again
To right the wrongs of many. Speech, thank God,
No vested power in this great day and land
Can gag or throttle. Press and voice may cry
Loud disapproval of existing ills;
May criticise oppression and condemn
The lawlessness of wealth-protecting laws
That let the children and childbearers toil
To purchase ease for idle millionaires.

Therefore I do protest against...

I know,

I know I could have done better,

I know I am capable of more than this,

I know I've let myself down,

I know I'll have to work hard for better results,

I know that my family and friends are disappointed,

I know I've failed myself.

I know I've failed myself!

I also know I didn't do my absolute best

I know I now need to take advantage of these opportunities that come my way,

I know.

Octagésimo Quarto

Minha cabeça encosta no travesseiro, mas não fica ali, as minhas ambições gritam mais alto que o sono.

O mundo é grande demais para ser visto da janela do quarto.

Que minha vontade me leve onde eu possa ir e então, além disso.

When I was younger, I believed 'Holding on' was hard but now I realized 'Letting Go' is the hardest.

-I found myself when I let you go.

            The Light

Take a step back,

Into the night,

Let the darkness endure you,

Allow yourself to fall,

Fall hard,

Because...

After the rain there is always a rainbow,

The light at the end of the tunnel.

-Don't Give Up

I am stronger than my excuses.
I am engulfed in determination and I refuse to allow myself to continue sinking. I will shape myself into the person I desire to be and I won't care if you exist or not. Thinking of you and the pain you've caused me, won't ever happen again. And this time, if you decide to reappear in my life, I'll have the strength to push you away and not let you in. This time I won't let you have your way. You won't get to see what I become. You won't get to be a part of my change. If you couldn't stick around through my worst, I sure as hell am not gonna include you at my best.

We'll be okay
It gives me hope
My faith is stronger now
I exist, my heart is beating and I'll be strong

There will be bad days but I'll get through it with the thought of him
The future is cloudy but it will clear up
We will be okay
I have a strong belief in that
We will be okay

I am freed from the chains from my past that held me. Freed from the lust, freed from hatred, freed from the entire delusion. My mistakes are not the end of me; only the experience to build me toward my purpose. I am set free.
The question is Are You?

Have you been conscious about other people's opinions?. She used to have that. Everything they said got to her. She never believed in herself. The worst was that she didn't like who she was. Not once did she think about beauty or being smart. She lacked that,in her mind apparently.
Always struggling with low self esteem. This went on for a very long time. It began to affect her everyday life. It made life unbearable. She got up one day and took charge of her life. She looked at her reflection in the mirror with teary eyes and said "I am beautiful and I won't drown in my sorrows. She began working on everything wrong with her and she made it. Never allow things to get to you. Change what you ...

Hey Pals
I been out for a while. I went to Liberia West Africa to visit family and share the little I worked for here in Sweden with the orphans.
I met kids which parent died from the deadly Ebola virus that hit west Africa two years ago. Some were just months old when their parents died and some was a bit older.
I visited these kids everyday for six weeks. We play soccer and other games. I bought Christmas gifts, clothes and help feed them.
And when I was ready to leave Africa a 3 years old orphan asked me " Chris can you be my dad".  That's the best the ever happen to me in this life. I agreed to be her dad and support her.  I'm going back to Liberia soon to adopt her. Just a lil about m...

Dear love,
This was our first valentine without me.
I hope your new passion could fill the cracks in your heart
that i somehow made.
But he will not be able to caress your soul and love it like his own.
Yes, he is the one for you now and I have no place in your heart.
Remember this... you can turn me away as much as you like
but how would you wipe way the smudge of the lipstick
that marked the communion of our love?
I know there is no coming back.
But I don't want to come back.
I want to go far away.  
wait for you at that meeting place,
where even time wont catch up with us.
And with you by my side, mark my forever.


Your love.

Luminosity, the symbol of hope, of all the possible desires and our choices that curved the future like the ripple effect.
From the strangest of dreams in the darkest of nights we live nothing and yet hope, it sparks.
We all idolises that one thing- that one object that truly curve our choices, may that object be a loved  one, may it be the singular passion you're obsessed with. It defines us, defines the choices we make.
Thinking generality, I suppose the moment we come to this world we affect the world in some ways, may be sometimes even in the minimal ways possible, but we do. And that is what that's the most important thing, otherwise we would have ceased to exist. Isn't that beautiful?

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
