Last night I saw you on my way, Talking to someone and walking away, I saw you were all smiling and happy with your life, While you made me to think all about my life. Last night I saw you turned to look at me, And your helpless eyes spoke to me, I felt a twitch in my heart as I saw the sea infront of you, Were you happy for yourself or for someone that you knew? Last night I saw that you were saying goodbye, While wind whispered in my ears all the secrets of your eye, In that cold dark night I saw your tears coming through, Last night I think I dreamt of you. -JMJ
With a flawless skin which has no sign of aging, And dark long hair which can be really engaging, Deep blue eyes which has an ocean inside, Anyone would love to dive in without knowing what is inside, She has a perfect smile that can lit up the sky, But with a dark heart reflecting all the evils under the sky.
Other one is an epitome of ugliness that's how the world see, With no facial features or perfect teeth, People loveto swipe quickly as her picture comes on screen, But her acts of kindnesses are always honoured behind the screen. Her eyes are doves symbolizing peace and love, And hands so warm that can calm any storm with a touch or a hug, She is a free spirit woman who you can never tame, So, if I want to define beauty what it would be? -JMJ
Something strange happened today, I got a smile for the rest of the day, We met a charming lady on our way to the shop, While I was rushing through and said my girl to chop chop. This woman at an elderly age, Was sitting on a wheelchair and looked like a sage, She waved,smiled and gave my child a shake hand, It gave me a feeling like someone has already planned, To meet a stranger and to make my day, I would love to meet a stranger like her everyday. -JMJ
I saw dark circles under my eyes, But they always told the truth and never the lies, They have hope beyond the troubles in the world, Even when I was feeling all crumbled. I saw wrinkles on my face, But they reminded me of all the laughters and the grace, They were not only the signs of my love and care, But also my strong determination and willthatyou mustbeware. I saw my hairs are turning grey, That's not a reason for dismay, That salt and pepper hairs on my head, Are the signs that I have come so far ahead. -JMJ
Have you ever had an incident in your life which has affected youa lot later? Something, which is still fresh in your mind even if ithad happened a long time ago. A face that you cannot forget.
I have a story to tell you which has been haunting me since several years. I still remember the day when I was going to church with my mother and my little brother. I think I was twelve or thirteen years old. While walking, I saw a middle aged man, walking towards us. From a distance itself I had a feeling of uneasiness. When he came nearer I gave him a glance and I took my mother’s hand to hold in shock.
You must be thinking that he might have done something. Then, you are wrong. In this story, I’m the villainess. My behavior was totally based on his physical feature, his facial disfigurement. It was like he didn’t have a nose or mouth and those organs were all joined together to appear like a big mass on his face. I had never seen anyone like that before. The way I reacted after I saw him was so rude and unkind that he quickly walked past us bowing his head. But before he did that I saw disappointment and sadness on his face.
That night, I couldn’t sleep because I got scared of him. It didn’t occur to me at that time that I’m theone who had hurt him. Only thing that bothered me was his face. It took a few years and anursingdegree course to make me realize what wasthe cause for his disfiguredface. What I did was so wrong even though it was unintentional.
I still remember his face but the feelings are not the same. Regret has taken the place of fear. That was the first and the last time I saw him. I never got the chance to say sorry to him in person.This post is a confession and I would like to take this chance to say, “I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I was so ignorant and unkind that I behaved like that. I’m sorry that I judged you based on your face without knowing you in person. I’m sorry that I hurt your feelings when I looked away because I wanted to avoid you. I’m deeply sorry for what I have done.” So if you read this, I hope that you do, please take it as an apology from my heart.
When my life turns upside down, When I feel all alone, When none of the things feel right, When everything in front of me is an upsetting sight, I see you running towards me, To wrap your arms around me, Then you give me your soothing kiss on my cheeks, Did I ever tell you this? That you are my little sunshine, You are my little sunshine... -JMJ
I saw a girl down the street, A toddler who loved a treat, With an innocent smile she wandered around, From one place to another as she didn't remember where she was found. With a plastic carry bag on her hand, She was following the big girl who was in command, Picking up the litters to buy some food, But I'm sure it was no good. I walked past her in a hurry to get my bus, Thinking that I would get another chance and no need of a fuss, Doing the same thing the whole week, Finally I found sometime for the weak. Waiting for her with a bag in my hand, I never thought that I would be so late to understand, That reaching out to others is never a waste of time, Now, all I got is a feeling of remorse that I was not there for her on time. -JMJ
