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.

This post is in response to the one word prompt. Layers.

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…

Whispering Clouds

Dark in the night,

The moon had gone to hide,

There was terror,

Blood like stain all over the ground,

The clouds roared and rumbled in astonishment.

Alima whispered with tears in her voice,

Her face stricken with fear.

We are lost mother,

We are lost…

We tried to run, but we got lost

They are coming, yet we are not set,

They are coming in thousands,

To feed on our shadows,

I see them, yes they see me,

Oh my!

They are set in the misty clouds,

They can’t be brought down,

Nooo!

The lost souls are risen.

Come save us mother.

Come save us…

Dream like a Tourist

I went high up in the sky,

Looked down, saw the hills waving at me,

cloud sailing in front of my face,

Stars shining, moon glowing so bright.

 

Jungle trek I went; smiling at trees,

Animals mating and feeding, nature is wonderful,

Huge, gigantic  dinosaur running around carefree,

Birds chirping and looking radiant.

 

I sailed across the large mass of water

My shadow calling forth from the deep sea

Music flowing into my ears in romantic rhythm,

Sea animals asking me to join in the water splash game.

I travelled in my dream as a tourist by land, air and sea.

“It is the tenderness that breaks our hearts, the loveliness that leaves us stranded on the shore, watching the boats sail away. It is the sweetness that makes us want to reach out and touch the soft skin of another person. And it is the grace that comes to us, undeserving though we may be” Robert Goolrick

“Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well” Voltaire

There is a journey that’s waiting for you, you will make great discoveries, you will find treasures and hidden powers, it’s a journey divinely designed just for you, today be brave in self-love and start the journey within yourself, there God is waiting to show you his masterpiece of love” Micheline Jean Louis

 

 

 

Water of Life

A tiny little drop of you,

Water of life,

Fill my belly with wantonness,

To quench my thirst,

Wilt and shrivel will be far from me.

 

I am, but nothing than helpless, a seeker.

I long for you to make me rise.

Spring of life,

Flow into me, bring me out to thrive,

Let me flourish, unending quest to survive in the desert,

Where one out of thousands no not his fate.

Produce tiny seeds that will become me once again.

 

I will blossom in beautiful colours of petal,

I will flourish in all season,

I will heal the sick,

My thick back used as shelter,

All this I will do with my green self.

Make me the giver of all.

7 Things Men Do Before They Say I Do

It’s very conflicting for men before they land on the path of ‘I DO’, or rather very adventurous. Men generally like to live ‘the life’. Gone are those days when a lady meets a guy for the first time and the man tells her he wants to settle down and really keeps to his words.

So what are the things men do before they say ‘I do’

1. Nowadays  a man will tell a lady on the first or second date that he wants to marry her just with the sole purpose of getting into her pants. aha. Men tell ladies the truth and stop the deceiving game. Most men don’t plan to get married, they plan to f*ck, right from the very day they set eyes on a lady…. If not all , then most of them.‘ladies beware.’

2. Men are scared of commitment, it’s a very long journey for them to get to ‘I Do’ land. Men want to party hard, drink, play like there’s no tomorrow, taste threesome. They want to be imaginative and constructive. Their minds need to feed on something appealing.

7 things men do before they say I do

3. Men want to find the perfect woman, one that can cook all types of continental meal, local dish, snacks, name it… They want one that is very good in bed by testing all, until they find the perfect match, the luscious woman with good looks and eye stopping figure. A woman who can work all day and work all night…


Women are not aliens. They are human. 


4. Every bachelor plans his finances for a better future, but I don’t understand situations where some men spend half of the money saved up for their marriage on the wedding ceremony, who is to be blamed for this, the women or men themselves? Either way, It’s still part of the journey to the I do land.

5. Every man wants to lose his virginity before the day. Have you ever met a virgin man at that point in life? Guess not! Even though we still have some female virgins…. men running around searching for female virgins when they have lost theirs long ago before the age of ten years. How is it possible to find the virgins of opposite sex when they have all been tested by the likes of you.

6. Really when a man starts to keep malice with his yet to be father in law is quite amusing, yet to think only women hated the idea of yet-to-be mother in law’s interference in relationships and marriages. Men on that journey always ensure they create a little distance before they say I do.

7. They tell lies to every (Lucy, Rihanna, Kimberley). Why? Simply put it this way–‘A man will always be a man.’

I really hope I’m not stepping on toes here, yikes! aah.. It’s just the simple I do truth, marriage should be enjoyed and not endured or bastardized. Catch all the fun, do whatever you want to do– hope women will be wise enough to detect all this….but men do all this with caution or don’t do it at all to stay safe! You never can tell what could be hunting you down from your past adventures.

 

Never run from your shadow
