The bare trees stand at winter nights, With fragile bodies and no blankets of leaves to cover, Keeping their heads up and hopes high, Waiting for a good time to come. And you shower all your light, That you received as a gift from someone, Because you know what darkness means, So,you just reflect the kindness over them. -JMJ
When the night falls, Sun leaves you and the darkness starts to fill your eyeballs, When you stumble on every rock on your way, All alone on a road in a land far far away, When all you can hear are the screams of stillness, And you find signs of increasing frailness, Open your eyes and look in the sky, As the moon and stars are not saying you goodbye, Feel the ground, And walk as if you own the land, Listen to the sound of wind in the trees, The music of the rustling leaves, Settle your nerves, Because you are a part of this powerful universe. -JMJ
Strength is when you get up every morning, And all you want is to do moaning, Instead you decide to get dressed, Believing that you are amazingly blessed.
Strength is when you are in a rabbit hole, But try to put a smile on every soul, And even when you are tired to take another step, You lend a hand who have fallenon their doorstep.
Strength is when your heart bleeds, Still take the decisions according to their needs, Even though the person has hurt you so much, You just hope for their happiness without any grudge.
Strength lies in our values and integrity, It lies in understanding our talent and capability, Strength is not only physical but emotional and mental too, It's walking in the darkness keeping your head high and believing that you will getthrough. -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
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. -JMJ
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 theoars, And to believe in yourself to row your boat with those oars. -JMJ
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. -JMJ
