THE PURSUIT OF LIFE…

As I took a walk the other day, my mind wandered a bit and I thought to myself, ‘why is everyone going somewhere or coming back from somewhere?’ Is it in pursuit of money, luxury, faith in God, peace, joy, or love? Then it struck me… ‘Why was I out also?’ Many people subconsciously think they are in pursuit of…

PAIN AND HEALING

PAIN How do I make it go away? The pain and hurt that comes my way It seems like they have come to stay, But take it all, my soul does pray. HEALING The pain is gone but I feel it Please teach me how to forget it; Day by day, starve the pain, starve it In the end, you’ll…

WHITE JASMINE

Warm sun brings you forth Up! Up, from the earth Shrouded in beauty Is all my eyes see; Pure white covers you Like snow or as wool Yes! You are pristine, Pretty White Jasmine Say, you’re so tender Hmm, little wonder Cupid wanted you; Amongst his choice few For your sweet fragrance Takes me into trance And I dream of…

Dear Book

I remembered when it was just us When you and I painted pictures You did the painting, and I the seeing Seeing we both had each other in mind Every stroke of the pen was new Stories were told; them I barely knew You smeared smiles that was familiar Those I can and can’t remember You made me smell the…

A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to go to London for a day trip. During the trip, we went to Inamo. An Asian/Japanese restaurant in Camden. The food was amazing!

Plain and simple

Choose happiness. Choose what brings you joy and passion. Not everything one does will lead to a fruitful and happy lifestyle. But, by doing what we love, and what brings out the best in us is so important. As I was reflecting I was thinking about ways which sadness and darkness have taken over and robbed so many of their…

Seed

Like a seed, thoughts take control of us, Consuming us of every inch of greatness, belief, faith But they won’t take our dignity Like seeds, we choose what to water, what to neglect, But that is far from easy when we detect pain, the insecurity that stems so far down within us, that we are blinded to the point it…

Halfway to forever

Each sail of the journey On life’s ferry Seems like an endless dream Just to wake up at the ray’s beam Saying it’s just halfway to forever From youth to old years From strength to grace It’s likened to infinity A number increasing But still ends at halfway to forever The endless wait That makes us waste no haste But…
