Your intentions

Intentions Unseen by many and only felt by few. Sometimes, actions blur what you want to express. Miscommunication, complications, repetition but, yet, we get confused when our pure intentions are misread and blocked away like a pest. Intentions Yours somehow mesmerise me. Calculating things until they are perfect. You place my concerns above yours are and return them with this…

Frozen Tricks

The tricks of an old man are quite plain and simple yet lavished with great knowledge and an unending flow of gratitude to one’s life. Change is something most do not appreciate, yet often times it’s the only way to move forward in life, a change in time, a change of mind, but the paths we walk in life are…

Diaries Never Forget — Part 2

We Needed Human Diaries We didn`t need my coded and hidden diary, or my classmates` locked diaries, We needed diaries that had ears to listen; eyes, that we were sure had seen what we saw, mouths that could guide us in love, and hearts that were loving enough not to condemn us. We needed human diaries that we could confide in,…

LIFE’S WATERS

‘How can the waters of life be navigated?’ For I feel I am drowning sometimes Whereas other times I feel I am in control In control over the waves and tides, Over the tempest and turbulence And at such times, I feel like the man The man that languishes in sorrow; I notice that when I am in control Then…

I am grateful for time

I’m grateful for time. The wounds it heals and how it allows me to see the bigger picture one step at a time.

Life is more than what it seems. the little memories that come packaged with it are often not recognised. All my life, I’ve lived in the clouds, soaking up every moment that may come my way, not a single drop of despair can shatter the joy that rests in my heart. My family has always been there for me, in…

Diaries Never Forget

Diaries can be such amazing treasures when they display their record-keeping ability in the face of our failing memories. They never add, they never take away from events. They never protect anybody`s image due to their social status they have attained long after their deeds were recorded, or whatever other reasons. As long as events were recorded as they happened,…

RAMBLINGS

We live for ourselves Sometimes for our children, Hardly for our country, Often times, for our God Sometimes we’re merry Sometimes we’re weary; Sometimes we’re happy Sometimes we’re grumpy – We wish, we wish That in one swoosh, ‘Twill be alright; And e’erything straight We live to love? And love to live? Maybe we need more Time, hug, laughter Smile,…

Grieving

Grief. It’s sting is sharp and painful like a needle piercing into one’s skin and slowly draining our blood. It creeps in like a thief in the night. The only time you’ll see it is in the closet. Grief. Connected to a loss, a tragedy, a death. Unexplainable. Our unanswered and unspoken questions revolve around our minds, unknown on whether…
