*The Faceless Man*

The rain; it still falls
Down onto the ground until it disappears among the mirrors reflecting the sky
He watches still, as it rains
The water leaking, cracking, and breaking what little wall held by

His breath comes back, heavy in sorrow
The drops, he thinks, are burdened too
Like fallen angels, they stare upright and into the night; shrouded out of sacred heaven.
“An echo,” he whispers, “is all that’s true?”
Puddles of memories upon the ground

He watches still, as it rains
Drowning, he knew, was not a choice
He had tried already, the bottles now scattered
It was all still there, his crying voice

The drops still fall, he watches on
In all the echoes,...

Living a noisy life
I sit here in the park
Listening to birds sing
And the people talk

The silence is very soothing
Calming my mind
Though after a couple of minutes
I still long for your booming voice

I miss you terribly
Your deep laughter
Your stern looks
Your few spoken words

Let me trade this few minutes of peace
For your life long presence
For I can miss the peace of mind
But I don't want to miss my heart

Psst !
( Attempting to write a poem. This was on insistence of a friend who told me write a poem and another friend who told me to post this. Thank you both for the encouragement. )

Sólo la muerte,  
Nos hace ver
Que tan frágil
Es la vida...

Hasta siempre Tío Pepe 😣

वो ख़ुश था अपने वालिद के गुज़र जाने पर,
इस दोज़ख दुनिया से तो ख़ुदा की ज़न्नत भली,
उसे ग़म था तो बस इस बात का,
उनके ज़नाज़े को वो कांधा न दे सका,
ये ग़म भी उसे न होता गर वो अपाहिज़ न होता।

I'm not going to internationalize my emotions
See let me tell you
You made the mistake of trying to address all of this with me thru texting
Instead of coming to me correctly
The way you should have done things is personally
A face to face would have been correct
Instead you shadowed behind the glass screen and keys
You wanted to play in the league
Yet you couldn't handle
My world is to much
I'm a woman you can't manage
So go back to what you know
Take the easy way out
It took less than 72 hours for you to revert back
Let your true colors shine
Remember I will still be here on my feet standing just like when you met me
I'm not broken
I'm still whole
I'm just in my world still and c...

I couldn't keep away my gaze from you..
You find peace in them..
And I find my world in your eyes.. Filled with happiness.
As long as I see my world in them it's colorful... And I lay back peaceful.

If only I had the courage to let you go,
Not because there's no love left,
But because there's more to give,
You don't require me anymore,
Yet you love and hold on to me,
I am the roadblock, get rid of me,
Cruise on, go fast as you fly high,
The catalyst that I was once,
Gave you the wings, the will,
All that remains of me are the ashes,
Ashes of the exhausted fuel,
Fuel, that keeps alive the fire of your desire,
Fly high, while I watch you with joy,
Live, love, laugh and touch the sky,
You being a free-spirited bird is all that I desire,

There are two type of people in the world.

Those who flow in the stream, (95%)
Those who are their own stream. (5%)

Make a wise Choice for yourself.

          "Love Yourself First"
When there is no one with you or neither around you think there is someone beside, behold in you, who is waiting to come out as you and wanted to know you from long time that's no one then yourself.

       "You" been a trustful love
for others, but not to yourself".
So first love, your inner harmony to swerve your outer world.
                  -Chirayu!.

Free
Thats all I want
I am a bird in a cage
Begging for freedom
Dreaming about then flight in the sky
The sun in my face
The wind passing by me
My fate in front of me

I am a tiger
Roaring, demanding freedom
Dreaming about the run in the wild
The fire in my eyes
The colors blurry around me
My fate in front of me

I am a wolf
Growling in the name of freedom dreaming about the moon
The howls escape my mouth
The trees surround me
My fate in front of me

I am the bird, tiger, and the wolf
Begging, roaring, demanding, growling for freedom
Dreaming about flying, running,  and the moonlight
I can be brave, fierce and loud
I will never forget where I come from
So when I escape and free
I know wher...

George Michael
"Freedom '90"

This song has been one of my favorites for years, but I've come to know it again and love to hear it play over and over.

"Living on Ego is an illusion and is fake, he sings to freedom and chooses to let go of superficial bounderies or masks and live lighter and happier. Freedom is a song of celebration!!"

It gives me a feeling of empowerment. It makes me want to get out and do big things!

It gives me energy whenever I hear the chorus no matter what time of day.

I love to listen to music when I paint. It seems to help my ideas flow more easily. I think music and art go hand in hand.

Dear all,

We don't take enough chances to accomplish enough.  Seriously, we don't.  We trap ourselves with superficial ideals and standards as if the world runs on magic.  The superstitions we maintain are mind numbing and our societies are stagnant simply because we refuse to accept the reality of, well, anything.

"There are no facts, only interpretations" - Friedrich Nietzsche

This is demonstrably false, yet it has become far too deeply rooted in the minds and hearts of those who follow this philosophy.  Wise as it may have seemed in his time, we have developed technology and understandings that prove this statement untrue.

Does the Earth revolve around the sun, or does the sun revolve...
