Do you feel?

Do you feel like sometimes whatever you do to make things right it’s not enough? You try and keep on trying to make other people’s life easier and happier but ultimately, you get blamed for the things that you never did.

You feel like everyone’s fingers are pointing on you and you don’t even know why? People take advantage of your silence because you don’t want to hurt others by telling the truth. Every morning you get up hoping that it would be a good day and try to be positive but you overhear people saying lies about you and spreading gossips.

You feel like to shout on top of your voice saying to the whole world that you are innocent but all you can do is swallow your words and take shelter in the dark corner of a room. You feel like you are walking on the eggshells.

Do you feel like even if you are honest about each and everything, everyone will make you a liar because that is what they want for their reputation and benefits? Have you ever felt how cold the world can be?

Under The Moonlight

Yesterday, while walking back from work I was able to capture this beautiful sight on my phone. What a sight!

The light of the Moon reminds us that when we share the light of others, we shine in our own unique way.

Suzy Davies

There was something about the moon. The way it reminded me of the hope I sometimes clung to. A sliver of light in all that darkness.

Michelle Chamberland

Perhaps everything can be solved by a walk in moonlight.

Marty Rubin

I slept under the moonlight and set my soul free, caged within jars like fireflies.

You Are Strong…


When the whole world stops,
And there is nothing to hope,
You give your smile,
To convince me that all is well,
Oh baby! You are strong.
When my heart starts to bleed,
And it gets hard for me to breathe,
Then you hug me and kiss me to calm my mind,
I see the resilience in your eyes,
Oh baby! You are strong.
When it gets hard to take another step,
All I see are the walls and there is no way to escape,
You take my hand to go for a walk,
And show me a world beyond those walls,
Oh my baby! You are strong.

When someone rocks your boat…

When someone rocks your boat,
And there is nothing that you can do about,
Calm your body and mind,
But stand tall and keep this in mind,
That even a storm can't touch a tree,
With roots so strong and deep caused by all those hardships on the tree.
When someone rocks your boat,
And blames for something you knew nothing about,
Calm your body and mind,
Fly high and keep this in mind,
That dark clouds can't stop an eagle,
When it's soars high in the sky,
Believing just on its wings it flies high above those clouds in the sky.
When someone rocks your boat,
All you have to do about,
Is to keep holding on to the oars,
And to believe in yourself to row your boat with those oars.

The Remorse


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.

Perfect Storm

Alone in a deep forest,
Thinking about whether to protest,
Against all discriminations and bias,
Or to hide away and be pious.
She saw innocents being crucified,
Blamed and buried for something they had never tried,
Powerful was taking advantage and pulling the strings,
And then they claimed about their sufferings!
The reality was reversed as people closed their eyes,
The perpetrators said they were victimized,
Now, how can she just be quiet?
The perfect storm was in formation and she said to them, try it.

Spirit

You will find the greatest human spirits,
In the hell's deepest pits,
Where people refuse to surrender to what happened to them,
And don't allow to be defined by the people around them.

There is an unrelenting human spirit in each one of us,
That helps us to fight any evil forces,
An undefeatable mind and a body in motion,
With courage, resilience, love and compassion.

Rain

Heaven has opened its door,
Bringing tranquility to our soul,
Soothing the Earth's burned skin,
Making the thirsty birds to sing.
Trees are whispering their joy in my ears,
Swaying their body like dancers,
Sky have their own drum beats to show off,
And I'm wondered by the lights they are bringing out.
As I sit inside my house watching the downpour,
Every drop is a grace that I was hoping for.
