Shattered Glass

My heart,

Transparent like a glass,

See through my innocent soul.

Trying to pave through my heart?

Tender as it is?

Do you not see?

that mounting on my heart,

shatters me,

to bits and pieces too tiny,

cannot be put back into shape.

Can be shaped back together?

How?

Will it be the same again?

Same way it was before?

Or stronger?

Like starting all over again?

Why then treat heart that way?

When all you have to do,

is to tread with care,

not break heart into pieces,

care for heart as you care for your life.

No I’m Not Ready For Sex

There is this notion that when a woman says NO, she actually means YES. It is absolutely impractical when that assumption is believed  and being in existence for too long; When a woman says NO to sex, she sure means NO. Men need to stop this irrational thinking that a woman means yes when she says no. In the actual fact women are known to be the weaker gender, women don’t like being put under too much pressure by men, this makes them give in when a man makes a request.

It’s a connotation of what the man and situation of sphere at that moment that made her voice it out-Why men think women are confused?  NO WAY, you just need to give some space, let go…. allow women be who God has created them to be, then the universe will fall into place. You need to start accepting a woman’s no to whatever the case might be so that things won’t eventually get out of hand at the finish line.

Ask yourself what your objectives are, what are you willing to benefit, why do you want to go that far, what will it profit you, how far will it take you, how long is it going to last for, how does it make you feel, how does she feel about it. Does it determine who you are or stand for….THIS IS FOR THE MEN.

Women it’s time you stop getting scared of saying no and stand your ground. You have to learn to say no without feeling any remorse. Learn to be dignified, take responsibilities, don’t fear for your life, the future will take it’s course by the decisions you make today.

Here is a scenario where a man tries to seduce woman, then she moves away carefully, he tells the woman ” I would really love to have sex with you.”

Woman tells man, ” No I’m sorry I can’t, I’m not ready.”

Man starts to put pressure on woman thinking her “no” actually means “yes.”

Man- ” You know I love you and want us to be closer.”

Woman- “Really I need some more time to get to know you better.”

Man- “That’s exactly what I’m trying to say, this is the best and quickest way of getting to no ourselves better.”

Woman starts to give in to the pressure. She smiles softly, feeling the IMAGINARY fear in her heart that she might loose him if she insists on saying NO.

Woman- “Alright just this once, I hope you won’t ever cheat on me.”

Man- ” We are both adults, lets have fun, moreover you are my babe and I can’t hurt you.”

Woman finally gives in. Man eventually continues going around feeling convinced women mean yes when they actually mean no.

Things eventually didn’t work out between them, the woman starts to hurt and blames the guy for using her and putting pressure on her. Things turn out bad. If only the man had respected her decision without coaxing her into giving in.

This is just one of the large number of occurrences between women and men that leads to unfortunate scenes, erupting from YES OR NO.

A gentle man will always respect a woman’s boundaries. Learn to say no and mean it without having to give explanations.

Saying yes just to please someone else is not a true yes, it’s not good for them, and it’s not good for you-Kate Northrup

 

 

 

 

 

In the Midst of Darkness

Catastrophic events, trials, tribulations,

Flows in the part of life,

A necessity it is,

Encapsulating darkness to give rise to destruction.

Fought at the war front to break it into fragments,

Rebuffed, declined, refused,

Light is unleashed when the capsule cracks open.

 

Skin filled with filth of darkness,

Tossed away with spiritual cleansing,

Like the waves washed the shore.

A bright new skin is given birth to,

And Light comes forth.

 

in the midst of darknessThe heart corrupt with evil,

Calling forth darkness to overtake,

Will break open and through the eyehole shall light find it’s way in,

And shall call out the darkness,

To love, kindness, peace, togetherness, humility.

 

Nations engulfed with war,

Killings, Kidnappings, Abuses,

Why fill your domain with darkness?

Nothing good comes out of it,

Why seek for the power of the dark side?

Rebuke it, let it be banished,

Receive light for it will take you to the higher side.

 

Darkness and light have no place together

I hug light tightly to my bosom,

For darkness not to prevail.

Because I belong to the light,

I will not be overshadowed,

World overwhelmed by darkness is for a while,

Light will show forth, it cannot be consumed,

It can never be consumed.

We call out to light in one accord and embrace it like a child.

Almost 50-Live a life Everyday

I was at the shopping mall and decided to indulge myself with lunch after the whole shopping spree. There I sat down at a small round table far away from where I could be disturbed. I looked up and there I saw a nice-looking mature man take a few steps towards me and he said to me across the tiny table, ” young lady, can I join you please,” I answered politely ” yes please.”

A few minutes later he said to me, ” you know… today is my fiftieth birthday,” I opened my mouth in amazement because I really don’t quite know how to put, he looked much older than his age, I told him politely with a smirk across my face, ” wow that’s nice- Happy Birthday,” 

While we had lunch quietly he stopped and said to me, ” I wish I had more fun when I was a lot younger,” and he went on chatting, “It looks to me now like time passed by while I was put on hold. I’ve decided regardless of all the pressures I’m under,  I will henceforth make this year one of celebration and certainty for myself”.

man-chats-up-woman

I actually didn’t know how to respond to that, then I told him you don’t have to regret anything because it’s not too late for you to have the fun of your life. I gave him a few TIPS on what to do, he thanked me for the piece I gave him with a grin all over his face, I simply got up and took my leave.

Let me know if you think I’m crazy, if you want to do any of this things with me or if you’ve already done them and have some tips. I’m determined to make each day of my life pretty awesome and making these goals public I believe is a good first step for me to get on the right path.

This brings us to the point where we need to acknowledge that those of us not yet fifty years of age should “live every day as if it were the last” even those that are fifty and above.

Things I would love to do:

  • I would love to turn off the internet for a week. I want to know how that would feel like. No twitter, no Facebook, no Instagram, no whats app. I think that sounds nice.

 

  • I would love to travel to Canada, Australia and ancient towns in China.

 

  • I don’t know how my guy would feel if he reads this, the truth is I so much wish I would have a set of triplets.

 

  • I wouldn’t want to be a salary earner for the rest of my workable life.

 

  • Having a date with VIN DIESEL would be a delight for me. I would cherish that forever!

 

  • I have two stories I’ve written, I don’t really know what’s stopping me from publishing them, I would be glad to start by pushing them out there.

 

  • I would love to buy my dad a BRAND NEW JEEP.

These are a statistics of my goals in life, my thoughts and my passions. I’ve put it all out now. Let’s see what happens…

 

 

 

Dealing with Heartbreak

My life is over,“I can’t move on without you”, desperate, confused; You ask yourself, “what have I done wrong?” These are the expression of pains you feel and questions asked when you are heartbroken.

You are not the only one in this TRAUMATIZING situation, it’s part of life experiences, it only strengthens us to face the bigger challenges coming our way, it is non negotiable.

“You can’t keep blaming yourself. Just blame yourself once, and move on.”
- Dan Castellaneta.

The good news is that there’s someone else out there perfectly made for you, to accept you….fat, short, poor, beautiful, attractive, slim-whichever one describes you.

Giving up doesn’t mean you are weak; sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let go, the right person might just be lurking around the corner, waiting for you- eddaz

If you know it makes you feel better to speak to everyone you know about it, then do it but don’t forget to let go of that feeling and move on…..you might fear that things will never be okay I promise you from the bottom of my heart that they will be okay again. Concentrate your attention on love within you and not on your break up. There is a better life out there with someone else or it might just be a test of faith.

“Sadness flies on the wings of the morning and out of the heart of darkness comes the light.” – Jean Giraudoux.

This goes out to my Facebook friend and other folks out there feeling sad and very empty right now, we have all been through one form of break up or the other and the good news is that it has brought out a better personality from the experience we had and some of us have been the initiator of the heartbreak which has definitely put the victim on the right path, it’s all part of life…

Sometimes two people have to fall apart to realize how much they need to fall back together-Unknown.

I really hope it makes you feel better, stay happy, you will be fine!!!

Layers of Thy Journey

Journey granted,

Overwhelming emotions of blissfulness,

Imperfect, unstable, humanistic I was.

 Dissected layers of trials in trust to me,

I had little knowledge of,

Which befell my course.

I presumed, dared with so much confidence,

Amazing how far I have gone without noticing,

Segments have grown tall into the amazon.

Satisfaction not remitted,

but emitted,

Grudgingly I step,

not stumbling,

but humbling.

Still on the path to clinched victory.

Opposite Birds

He prefers to be on land posing to impress the tourists rather than hanging out and feeding with other birds on the water. It seemed strange to me back then what sort of bird it was with such a long beak; still does. He’s completely opposite to the other birds in the picture.

Who’s In That Mirror

Look beyond your insecurities,

They are just obstacles.

Look beyond your fears,

They are just your imaginations.

Look beyond the voice in your head causing negativity,

It’s just an illusion.

Look beyond that mirror,

Who do you see?

The physical appearance of yourself is a perception of what you see in the mirror. Take a few bold steps to the mirror now, look closely…. A little bit closer…. Behind the physique which comprises of your body, face, legs, nose, eyes, arms. WHO DO YOU SEE?

who's in that mirror

Did you recognize yourself?

Something lurks behind it that you have never even taken cognizance of. If you didn’t see it then that means you need to get a better mirror. Smile if you want to… I bet the last time you looked into the mirror was to brush your teeth, shave beards, put on the make-up or maybe dress up to see how lovely you look.

You have most likely failed to see the past, future, failures, achievements, warning signs, visions, sadness, joy, growth…The things that have journeyed this far with you to see the “presumed physical image”.

Do you like what you see?

You have obviously changed since the last time you really saw yourself in the mirror, not the checking up your physical appearance routine thing! This is a question only you can answer; some of us see ourselves through the eyes of people we think know us so well but do they have those same eyes that look into that mirror? Big question

who's in that mirror

The quicker you connect with the person in the mirror, the earlier it will increase your self awareness. You get to understand yourself better, your strengths, weaknesses, fear… Secrets about yourself which you have been avoiding will be exposed to you right there and then, it’s not as bad as you might think, it only helps you in the journey of life.

The first time I practiced this, I was initially intimidated by my own image, I was like “who’s that strange person?” but I put it off as a bluff after more attempts. Now I know better because I have looked and gone beyond.

Do it now, search your soul, see yourself, know yourself!

 

 

The Simple Truth about Love

That intense feeling that holds your heart hostage, makes you want to cry, laugh, jump, scream….not give a damn…You wake up with that feeling of being in the cloud, better-still sometimes it puts you in a situation of restlessness, like in a fairy tale but the truth is it’s real, it’s not a Cinderella story and you are in for it….Ready or Not?

Simple truth about love

That tender lily shouldn’t fill either sex’s heart with pain….no, rather, it should make you want to drive long hours to see your heart-throb. When there is love, the absence of the one in your life will affect you and if it doesn’t….be true to yourself and acknowledge that your presence is not important.

Love knows your DEEPEST SECRETS, yet does not judge you…love is fierce enough to make you stand by someone even through the worst times of poverty, sickness, ugly situations, name it… but never waste your feelings on someone who doesn’t value them. They don’t even have to say “I love you”, you can always tell by the way they treat you.

Anyone can give you attention and compliments, but someone who loves you will give you that plus respect, honesty, trust, and loyalty Charles Orlando. 

If you don’t love yourself, you’ll always be chasing after people who don’t love you either Mandy Hale.

It’s weird but true to say that someone who really loves you knows the mess you are, how hard you are to handle, your high level of stupidity, your moody shit…but still wants you in their life forever.

Love is beautiful yet ugly, it is perceived and on the contrary rather than being implemented in our daily life, humans have given it a new meaning to favor their hearts desires. Show the true meaning of love!

Pleasure to Live

Children find pleasure running around playing with their mates,

They find pleasure smearing sweet chocolates all over their face,

Kids find pleasure watching TV cartoons,

They love babies, they want them to live and grow.

Tiny little kids of ours love to love wholeheartedly.

Children are young at heart, they feel unrestrained,

Hold no grudge,

Innocent at heart,

We love them…

 

Adults find pleasure in sex, hmm sweet!

Good to find pleasure making people smile.

Some find pleasure in hard drugs,

Wicked ones find pleasure in killing,

Disturbed ones find pleasure in stealing,

Some find pleasure in doing evil, and other abnormal acts

Whatever gives pleasure is lasting because it tastes good to you,

Sticks to the memory!

But aren’t you depriving others pleasure to live ?

To laugh,

To rejoice,

To multiply,

To grow,

To choose,

To have a second chance in life.

Seek pleasure in doing good. God will be pleased…
