#WeeklyChallenge

The sun began to fade behind the horizon. Red, orange and yellow fill the sky overhead. The colors temporarily painting the pavement at the train station. On a bench sits an abandoned book. People passing by take a quick look at the cover as they rush by. The book hoped the dream of someone turning each page in awe of it's story within would soon come true. The fear of fading out of existence was creeping in as the book sat on the bench waiting, begging in silence for someone to pick it up.

Reading
transports you
to unique places
created by the imagination
that each one creates
with their own story,
with their own dreams.
Each book
is like a train
that leaves from a
station and does not
stop until the end of
its journey.  
Each one of us rewrites
the book he reads with
his own mark.
Each story is
a different journey,  
an uncertain path,
a new chapter
in a different
situation.
Sometimes
it all depends
on the eyes when you read it,
and in what kind of train you are
that the story finds us.

Dream !!
I dreamt a dream
To travel with my team
With books, books and books
And of course, a cuppa tea

Butttttt... trrinn..trrinnn..triin
The alarm clock rang
breaking my dreams stack
And, Smiling at me with a geee

I dreamt a dream
To travel through air ,trains n sea
Far away with my team
Of books, pen n cuppa tea

Butttttt... trrinn..trrinnn..triin
The alarm clock rang
breaking my dreams stack
Smiling at me, indicating
to come back to reality.

Always live your life to the fullest,
like it’s a never-ending parade.
Fill it with every kind of colour
and music that has you dancing
amongst strangers as though
they were lifelong friends.

Forgive me. It has been quite some time since I’ve wrote anything selfishly, all for me. I used to love writing in English class, but that was years and years ago.

Think of this as a diary for myself to the world. A reverse Anne Frank. That’s a terrible comparison, because she never thought her work would be seen. The pretentiousness.

All of these words and thoughts roll around in my head with nowhere to stop and nowhere to go. Perhaps they can stay here for only a moment.

My favourite author is currently Chuck Palahniuk. He has such a dark humour and he is quite the wordsmith. I could get lost in the worlds that he weaves, caught up in dialogue and descriptions. That reminds me, I need t...

Currently reading The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri as it was recommended to me by my sister. She read it for a class and she thought it was amazing. So I had to read it myself.

I 100% agree. It is an amazing book, well written, it feels very raw and submerged in culture. If you’re on the edge about this book or if you’re looking for a recommendation to check out, you need to read this book!  Either way, you won’t regret it. The author also got a Pulitzer Prize for her story collection Interpreter of Maladies. I’m looking forward to the ending and checking out her other stories as well.

Have you guys read it? What do you think about it? Would you recommend it to anyone? Is it a favorite? What...

Has anyone on here read The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson?

Just wanted to talk about it since I’ve been reading it. I’m almost done and I have so much to say. Mostly repeating how brilliant it is. It’s the only self help book I’d ever recommend. It’s just so truthful and realistic which I love. We need that to actually be helped. Can’t get help or help yourself if you’re lying and sugar coating your problems in toxic and constant positivity.

Read into my poems and monologues you may understand me
Because they serve as a fucked up version of a diary

Everything I have wanted to say but with no one to tell
Are you ready to step inside my twisted mind and into hell?

My personal darkness all laid out to review
All these things you have wanted to know are right in front of you

There are no cryptic codes or puzzles to unlock what you seek
Go ahead and open the book, come on take a peek

It's right there, plain as day and all what is written true
It's all there for the taking, the pleasure and pain, it's yours to view

But I do warn do not continue on if you do not wish to know
How my life has been spent battling friends who turned ou...

It takes real courage
to continue to live in a house
and call it a home,
knowing full well it contains rooms
that hold memories that cause you pain.
Locked doors tend to highlight the things
they are designed to hide and, in the process, further add
to the feeling of isolation.
You will never heal if you refuse to acknowledge your demons
– they will remind you of their presence
and there will be no escape from the daily torment.
Be brave.
Open every door.
Face what you fear, head on.
Ghosts from your past have no place in your future.

It’s easy to judge someone, based on what you see
and form an opinion of them that will be completely wrong.
You will learn a lot about yourself as a person
if you understand that everyone has a different story to tell
that has been lived beyond the page.
Be patient.
Listen.
Always treat people with kindness and remember that flowers bloom
when the sun shines, they open up because they trust its warmth.

it’s been a while since the last time we spoke to each other
with intimacy drawing itself upon our distance to erase it
as though both of us were in a relationship so pure
that i’d be willing to let myself spill the truth for you to devour it

you always had a way to get me crumbling for you
this girl, Ana, told me that i was not good enough to be her friend
that you and i were the perfect pair so true
that the world would stay quiet just to listen to us make love

this boy, Miles, said i was too ugly and fat
that i carried an elephant’s baby in my belly
he said food was probably my way to distract
myself from how horrible my everything is

often i’d go home and cry
tears on my pillow, you by...

Greetings!
I've been writing poems for over twenty years now. During that time, several people have encouraged me to write a book of poems. I kept putting it off because I doubted myself and their words. Recently I was compelled to use what was in my hand and write a book. There is more to come. I know that this is the time to get the word out there while I can see it. It's entitled "From Crisis to Confidence".  It's on Amazon and set to be released on August 20.

Poetically yours,

These days I spend my time reading... I have read so much.... to escape. Escape, and to be someone else for a moment.. be immersed in a book so much it becomes your reality for as long as the chapters can hold you... just so you can forget who you are. So I dont have to remember I am me!

Sometimes, you must:
Hurt in order to know,
Fall in order to grow,
Lose in order to gain,
.....Because most of Life's greatest lessons are learnt through pain!

For the Feminists' 101 : according to Nathaniel Hawthorne 1850, The Scarlet letter A, if your husband is a douchebag, then adultery ain't a sin, it's Feminism.

Paulo Coelho once wrote.. The best way to get to know a city is to get lost in it... I suppose the same applies to a person. So, rather than dipping your toe, dive right in to them... mayhap you'll end up drowning in something that you have no urge to surface from.

I have been walking towards you my entire life,
hopeful that one day we will meet
somewhere in the middle.
When it comes to love,
I have no interest in triangles.
I see no value in moving in never-ending circles either,
especially when the centre is always the heart of everything.

‘You are my centre.’
