Don’t Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.

When care is pressing you down a bit.

 

Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns

As every one of us sometimes learns.

And many failure turns about

When he might have won had he stuck it out

 

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow

You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.

 

And you never can tell how close you are.

It may be near when it seems so far

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit

It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Weep No More

I hear you cry

Tears of pain

Sharp pain, sharper than blade

I know what you cry for,

You weep for your dreams

Drowned by failure

You weep for your self esteem

Clouded by fear

You weep for your potential,

Swallowed by you insecurity

You weep for the real you

Influenced by bad friends

And for your talents

Bombed by misuse of time

You weep for you dignity

Polluted by your own misbehavior

 

Weep no more, as it is not salvation to you

Weeping does not take back the hands of time

I hear you weep, I hear you pray

Every drop of tears,

Now be at peace, be calm

I bring relief of your sorrow

Wipe and stand up, move on

And turn back never

For I forgive you my flower

 

Weep never, loose your energy never

Light your candle, pour your drink

Share you happiness,you are new again

Feel my touch of strength

Like a butterfly, fly with my energy

Fly higher than you never did

Fly over the highest mountains

Are you awake? If you know you are

You will never weep again

Stand Tall

Leave a comment


Woman-Standing-in-the-Sun

Breathing, looking, feeling and walking
Deciding, choosing, living and talking
Just like a developing child; an adolescent learning
Just like an endless beginning a genuine yearning

Independent, supported or alone
Beg, borrow, or maybe one day I’ll even own
There is definitely a light and it is calling me
Close my eyes spread my wings and I will fly free

No more shame, pretend, cheap smiles and lies
No more ifs, buts, maybes or whys?
Who are you? What do you want? How do you sleep?
I know now I am not your possession to abuse and keep

You were right, it’s dramatic, and all for show
But it was you in the lead role, so desperate to grow
Like a parasite you tried to consume and destroy my life
Like a human being I tried to be your partner, friend and wife

Go back to where you came from; it is what you do best
Go back to being nothing,; an annoying little pest
And when you get there be sure look up high
Can you see me beaming brightly, lighting up the sky

Each night I am reminded that you are evil, selfish and vile
Each night I am reminded how lucky I am, blessed and smile
You should see them now you’ve gone; happy, confident and born again
All their own work, they erased you and survived any pain

It was much easier than I thought; you can’t miss what was never there
But unlike you, I did feel true love, I wanted to grow, experience and share
What a waste, a pointless thought and an unwanted gift
All you saw was credibility, an excuse and blame to shift

It is getting closer, that beautiful light calling me
Close my eyes spread my wings and I am flying free
It’s over, just give up and please let us be
Never again imprisoned, now and forever I’m holding the key

Your self-pity and fairy tales fall on deaf ears
Your stories and lies create no sympathy tears
One by one everyone is hearing the truth
T.R.U.T.H. comes with real evidence and proof

I swear this is the final night you will give me no sleep
There’s no master plan or cunning revenge for me to reap
You are a lonely little man, idiot, bully, gambling fool
You’ve lost again; tough guy but I’ve got it all
Do you feel small?
Pathetic and cruel
Down, down you fall
At last I am standing tall
…We’ve got it all

The Beauty of Your Heart

5 Comments


Light-in-Heart

I stretch my hands at a distance

Hoping to reach your hand

I look at you from a distance

Hoping to catch your beauty

I let my heart open

For you to require no code

Looking at you before I sleep

Waking up next to you

Dream about you when I am with you

Peace with you is a life I need to live with you

 

So many things might have come along

Shaking the walls of our love

Destroy the colors of the heart

Kills the light we have built for years

I won’t let that happen

I belong to you

 

I am yours even when the world turns black

Won’t matter a bit if you take all of me

Because alone I am incomplete

The part of me that needs your presence

Is bigger than I expected

You have concurred my heart

With the beauty of your smile

Tender care and beauty heart

I am yours

 

I would stand in a crowd

With your love, I shall still

Manifesting it all

Shy shall never prevent me

For all strength I have come from you

I shall always be grateful

 

Together we are composed

Within ourselves we fit every bit

The loudness of the world becomes our strength

And the waves of all shall set us a way

Attached hearts we are

Inseparable we are

Within the love we shine

Forever is our life

For a family we are strong

For eternity we are one.

A better Tomorrow

speed

 

I wouldn’t be here if I had not moved

It doesn’t matter how fast or slow

Catching up with my dreams is what keeps me strong

Every days has it edge

Challenges are what makes it interesting

And winning is what keeps us going

Never stop or give up

Tomorrow will always be different

Have heart, stay strong.

A Windy Day

It is too windy today

Houses swings

trees fall down

Ocean waves are too strong

The world is shaking

 

The natural causes are scary

no ways to stop rather being strong ourselves

our lives are in danger, children are dying

no good shelter for them

tomorrows leaders lose hope

The Country is shaking

 

Yet we have a chance

chance to leave all that behind

With effective decision

and free our souls

to wonder in pastures

with no life to lose

with one voice

 

We had to build a castle

yet we made mad house

with roof made of grass

which is not even resistant to rain

and strong natural calamities

Nonetheless we claim that’s freedom.

Medicine of the Soul

For every thought of a human being
There is a need of being happy
Every struggle soul wonders to seek happiness
Every person on earth deserves to be happy

Happiness isnt something you can touch
Isnt something you can buy
Its not seen, and cant be bought
Forgetting what we are
We tend looking for it in other people

Happiness is in every person’s ability
To either live it or hide it
We cant find it in shops
Not to mention in hospitals
It is the medicine of the soul

And it all start with a smile
Maintain a positive attitude
Live good with people
Help the need
Give yourself a favor
Smile for as long as you can
As for your life to prosper
You need to make that garden in your heart
And makesure it stay healthy for eternity
Keep your smile healthy.
