Light you,
Enrich the soul,
Awken pathways forgotten,
Perservere, Dear One
Sip the elixir of hope,
In the cleft of the heart
Release streams of sorrow.

Light you,
Flow and recover,
There is no error,
Frustration brings anger,
Do not distort what is,
Receive,  release, and renew,
Protect your spirit.

Light you,
Magnify your stars
Open your half opened shine,
Become the Evening Star,
Drown out all nocturnal fears,
Do not be muzzled,
Ride upon the wind of inspiration.

Light you,
The flickering flame is yours,
To feed into a fire,
Or douse with each pain,
All broken pieces, can be repaired,
Shattered pieces gilded with gold,
Never to be forgotten.

~O.

If I have to be honest I’m not always that positive as I seem to be but if I were not positive I wouldn’t be the person I am now. It’s just a matter of fact because if one always sees things negatively then problems and fears come along. I want to be stronger and I want to be happy, if something happens that makes me sad, then I see it as a lesson for me. A lesson to let me know that things happen for a reason good or bad, to let me see that life has planned other things for me.

I believe though, that we are all here to make a difference, for ourselves and for others. We just have to choose how to do it. And I hope that there are some people who choose to be kindhearted, helping, honest and ...

Tears hesitated to
trickle down my face
upon remembering how much I’ve loved you.

Fighting the confusion
between joy and sorrow
my heart, warm yet cold
struggled to stay alive.

Soul in exile, a battle won and war lost,
I beget freedom.
There is true freedom
in knowing I have
no love left to give you.

Don't let your worries fade away your smile. There's a ray of hope even in the darkest moments of life. Keep smiling.

Just Feeling Friday

Been constrained by the invisible boundaries,
Restrictions, rules, & regulations.

Been constrained by the unseen forces,
Norms, prejudice, & stereotypes.

Been constrained by the law of humanity,
Rights, selflessness, & conscience.

Been constrained by the mighty law of nature,
Time, space, & existence.

Been trying so hard just to take a break from all these constraints,
Setting my freedom free.

Been reasoning too hard too much,
Just to make (probably) a right decision.

Been waiting for this moment,
Taking a break from this normality.

Been kind to myself for just this moment,
Forget about the then and now.

Just feeling Friday

Inadequacy.

An empty stomach, much fuller than soon appears,
not hollow from want of trying to be,
sunken despite the constant plea,
An empty stomach, drained by her tears.

A heavy heart both beaten and tough,
a shaking hand that wants for touch,
a bottom lip thats bitten too much
and a brain that screams 'your'e not enough!'

A question asked to find the fault,
in search of an answer that does not exist,
perhaps a feeling she cannot resist?
a victim and gull of her own assault.

the face she owns is mine to cry,
a reflection we share that I can't love,
some day I hope to feel reanimate,
but for right now, all I feel is inadequate.

A.

It's a whole universe that is expanding within me. The wind is wild. And my heart is floating at the safest distance from my soul. I want to let go of everything. It is enough. I want to be seen and heard. I put to rest my inner beast. I have forgiven everything that is within my lightweight skin. And somehow I am always pulled back in their orbit, talking in circles and breathing glass dust.  I shall not die... I don't want to die... I am trying so hard to not lose myself. Desperately seeking a new territory to welcome my white flag and my exhales.

Confound in the maze of
My inner turmoil
I forgot to see the crack
Letting in a speck of light
Reminding me there is tomorrow
Come what may
You are breathing
You will live
There is yet a hope for you
So get up and get going
You have all the time in life
To be what you wish to be
To attain your vision.

They tell life is what we choose,
Sometimes we win and sometimes we lose.
But, Did you ever heard a story that never won?
And was never happy?
They tell it is your mind that needs to change, it's your thought that needs to change, it's your attitude that needs to change.
But, they never told me that it was fate that never favored me.
They got angry for my words,
They hated me for my actions,
They pitied me for my existence,
They cheered me for my success,
But, I had to struggle to do everything.
Who saw the real me, when it was always the reel me who was happy.
Who saw my sadness, when I always painted this curve on my face.
Who saw my tears, when I never let them out of my profound eyes.

Milestones and You

I know you have had a long journey ever since the parting.
Now, when we cross paths, I do see how exhausted you are.
I want to stop, to be there, even though I know your destiny has now changed.
I want to be there, also, because may be, I am the only one you are holding on to now. Not with much hope though.
I can see, how you have given up on everything, and to expect anything in return from you? I can’t do this to you.
And no, it’s not sympathy.

But, it does become all blur at times.
More often,I have chosen you over me.
But sometimes, I,  only want, you to see, that I am exhausted too. My journey was long too.
Want you to know, the only reason I could walk alon...

                 Solar Spirit

Blessed are those of us who are willing to embrace the freedom to be unapologetically who we are and without being required to be anything less or anything more.

No validation needed, no judgement, just full liberation, contentment, comfort and stable security to just be...
to be proud of who we are, manifesting our truth in the skin we’re in.

Now that, my friends, is where the true essence of unadulterated, raw power lies and it gives us the incredible ability to shine from our spiritual soul, a light brighter than sun from within for the whole wide world to witness.

Show me your sun!

In the sea of despair
a prickly little thorn of resilience
floats
and I grab onto it
clinging on it
for my life’s worth
till a shattering wave
of degradation comes along
loosening my hold
kicking me out of balance
dragging me down
but I’m desperate
so I keep holding on
to the prickly little thorn
till my hands
are scarred
and bleeding
and I keep bobbing
up and down
in the sea of despair
with every crashing wave that comes my way
and I have to struggle
to keep my head
above the water
gasping for hope
as the sea tries to suffocate me.
I am exhausted
but it doesn’t matter
I have to keep fighting
for I have no other option
but to be thankful
to the prickly little thorn
and ...

Where the man has flaged up moon, we humans still on earth lack that victorified sense of freedom. You might be wondering why did I use the astronaut stamp! The answer lies in the letter.
We say we have grown up, the world is changing, it's people too, but in what sense?  For us, freedom is just getting freed from dominance of others, but is that the real meaning?  
Just think about it. For some freedom would mean free from any boundaries during teenage, for some it might be equal opportunities,  for the some it might be living life as per their wishes and the list goes on. But in real sense it's the autonomy, liberalisation and independency from evil thoughts, actions and unjust feelings. F...

One year and one month ago today, I graduated from college-something that always seemed but a dream...far, far away. People never agreed with my decision of going to non-traditional high school and going to college to major in something that they had never heard of. Nobody had ever prepared me for it. There were no stories of successes or victorious triumphs...but only assumptions and questions, abandonment and betrayal from distant family because of the path I chose for my life and because I was living a dream that their eyes would never see.

I had to go to college. I was only sixteen when  I graduated from high school. I set off on a journey that terrified me. It was like jumping from...

The heart wants what its wants.
But that doesn't mean,
it gets what it wants
The universum gives you what you need
And nog whats you wants.
You are here to learn,
To find your Destiny
To follow your own journey
So even if you want sometimes in life and you won't be getting it
Remember it was not meant for you then.
There are other things people who you will meet, some you met for a reason let go and move on
The all have a rol in your life
But you have the biggest part,
Don't dwel on the whats if how of coulds.
Focus on the what Comes....
Enjoy Every bit Every moment envery time
In the end IT all works out

I scream to mama of terrors that
lies in my chest, circling
my heart w/ every th-thump
that awakens me...
I never knew the strength of
the darkness, & as I grow, my
Independence became the source
I was meant
to smother when the flames
threaten to reign.

One the brink of loss
The despair said it all
Close the eyes,
to gather the lost
When open,
future stands tall
Fear, delusion, refute
To a tranquility affair
Depends on what enters
Gone like, unspoken letters
Brittle, sharp content
Flow with the paths of water
And ,
Nothing matters

Seasons

I have been wanting to write so bad, but the fear of hurt was stopping me. Hurting someone I care so much about. And I couldn’t, wouldn’t do that again.

Everything I’ve been wanting to write, and think about, has all been about her. Every line of poetry in my head, every stanza, every rough draft, revision and edit, but none of them written down.

I still have dreams of her and I when I sleep, sometimes on a new adventure, sometimes doing something old, but I’m always happy in those dreams. I never stopped having dreams of her and I.

Books, TV shows, movies, music
It all brings emotions back to the surface again.
Ones that I try to hide with a mask yet again, but cannot, for they b...
