While It Lasts….

The weight and the pain,
The hurt and the tears,
The night and the terrors,
A lonely heart feels it all.

Time may not heal it all,
Words may not solve it all,
Success may not cover it all,
For a love lost may never be replaced

See those smiling faces,

Hear those singing voices,

Watch those dancing feet,

For they are what will be remembered when time and music stops.

So, love everyone you can,
Cherish everything you can,
Appreciate those around you today,
For you never know who may stay or leave tomorrow.

-Ezekiel Godsfavour.

To Be Loved Or To Be Trusted? Make A Choice. 

Can I ask you a question?

Have you ever been in love? Or have you ever loved someone so deeply that you swore you could capture the entire heavens as a proof of your unequivocal love?

If you have, then you know how it feels.

Now, have you ever been trusted with something so real and so special? Or have you ever trusted someone so deeply that within you, you had taken the decision to lay down your life if ever a situation demands it?

If you have, then you know how it feels.

Now to my question, (I know I have already asked 2 questions). If you have ever experienced any of these two blissful encounters, and at some point in life you are given only one option to choose out of these two choices, To Be Loved Or To Be Trusted, where will your answer swing to? 

To be loved or To be trusted? Make a decision.

The Curse. 

Everyone knows,
Yet, nobody cares.

Everyone is watching,
Fail or succeed,
They are all looking.

Nobody dares help,
It’s your burden, your cross.

A chance to prove yourself,
A time to silence the critics,
A moment to learn,
A new beginning to grow.

This time, take control,
Control of your situations,
Control of your tomorrow.

Be who you dreamt of while you were little,

And above all,
Be who you are proud of.

My Thougts In 10 Minutes (Day 4).

It’s been quite a while since i wrote anything, not for lack of what to write or shortage of inspiration, the truth is that i have been lazy to write, and even as i write this, i am not so sure if at the end of this little ‘unsensible’ piece, i will still find the strength to hit the publish button. Well, i do hope i make that decision.

Maybe you are reading this and you are already thinking or saying out loud, “this person is not so serious with writing”, or you may find it funny to hear me say, “writing is my life”, yea, i know, it does sounds like a joke, but truthfully, that’s the truth. winks!

I had a goal for this blog this year, (had, not have) and we are barely gone past the first quarter of the year, but here i find myself thinking if i should make a different goal or try to find a way to achieve this not broken but bent goal.

But thinking about it, there is no big a dream or bright an idea i could think of or have that will come to reality if those little foxes that destroys the vines are not taken care of. I guess all will still amount to me chasing the wind.

I know my problem, or at least two of them, and before now i thought i had them under control, but if the past few weeks have taught me anything, it is that, Our weakness and fears are constantly looking for new ways to overcome us, and if we go to sleep without beating them into submission, we give them the opportunity to overtake us.

And now, i must learn again how to be consistent.

HHow I started my blog. 

Well to be honest, writing is my life, and in the midst of this chaotic world, I find peace in my scribblings.

 I was going through a terrible ordeal at some point in my life, having lost my sister and mother to the cold hands of death, my life felt like it wasn’t going anywhere, and I was wallowing in the pit of depression, but writing saved me, God used it to save me. I had a diary where I wrote my thoughts and emotions, and I felt, hey why not share what you feel and think with the world, they may help you or benefit from it. So I started blogging, and the more I write, the more I hear a voice in my head telling me to continue. I can’t remember a day where I don’t write something. 

Don’t let me bore you with your long story. 

Advice to New bloggers. 

Well, I don’t know if I am qualified to be giving advice because I am still a toddler in this world of blogging, but if I were to say something, I will say, Be You, Be Original. Write from the inside, and write it the way you see it. You don’t have to use superfluous words to convey your thoughts, just keep it simple and honest.

Tomorrow. 

​I have two simple rules when it comes to this; Act like tomorrow doesn’t  exist, and plan like there is a tomorrow. This way, if tomorrow fails to comes, at least I know, I never left anything undone.
