Enslaved as a puppet easily blinded slowly weakening you
Holding on to a force that controls your body, mind and soul,
Forces that strain you pulling you down as you give it satisfaction,instead of being in control,
Becoming its blind fool thinking you have nothing to lose, only to be losing you,
Fear controlling and taking over instead of having the courage to conquer it.
I grew in your womb for nine months,
with my bleary vision, your hazel eyes are the first thing In my searching gaze.
You instilled in me the knowledge of right and wrong,
stayed by my side since my birth,
giving unconditional love with no restraint.
Doing your best for me,
even though I may do wrong or fall from your favour,
that ceaseless love and tenderness remains pulsing from your heart.
I feel at ease, knowing i can count on you for anything,
My mother’s love, my safest place, my comfort and my rescue.
Blindsided by the fierceness and toughness displayed on the outside
Yet on the inside it is soft, tender and warm,
All the smiles and the laughter is all hidden with pain filled on the inside
It may look like reality nevertheless of what people see its all an illusion
Illusion created to bring misconceptions and delusions of the real picture
Judgments arise due to the illusion without having a thorough investigation
The perfect illusion is designed to deceive the eye from looking whats inside the heart
First of all let me start wishing you a happy new year. The new year has just started and am so excited. Yeah its a new year when you hear familiar terms like “ New year, new me”. One thing I told myself I can’t do that but am on a journey on discovering myself and be a better version of myself. I guess am realising that now so weird but hey it happens. I think from the time 2017 ended I reflected a lot on my life. So I don’t have a new year resolution but am on a journey of self discovery. I want to be unapologetic myself and know who I am.
This year has been the craziest year of my life. When I say crazy am talking about the drama, in short 2017 has been a rollercoaster. There are 5 lessons that I have learn’t in 2017.
Lesson 1: Forgiveness
People mess up its part of life. They may do the most stupidest things which make you wander.
Ok so what I have learned it takes a lot of courage and bravery to forgive. Forgive and forget and move on. Yes you will forgive but you can never forget.
Lesson 2: Love
You can’t love others if you don’t love yourself first.
Lesson 3: Being yourself
Be yourself and not be what others expect you to be. Don’t live to please anyone
Lessons 4: Obstacles
Obstacles happen in our life for a reason. Whatever obstacles we face in life makes us stronger facing them
Lesson 5: Risks
In order to take risks you have to be brave and courageous.
At the end of it all it is the people who make it worthwhile and fun. Not forgetting love and support from family. I wouldn’t have made this far in blogging without readers out there who take time to read my poems.
Just a reminder my fellow bloggers to go and buy my friend’s book on Amazon. It is filled with wonderful poems. So go to Amazon and grab your copy now.
Constant ridicule to satisfy the ego
Being judgemental to satisfy one’s life
Assumptions, bringing constant interrogations
Hypocrisy to satisfy one’s self, main agenda being hatred
Lies, promises only to stab behind one’s back,
Cruelty, anger and resentment seems to be expressed with no mercy,
Love seems to have no meaning. Its like empty pages filled with no words
Emotions have been shut down with no care of the consequences,
Mind and body in a dark place filled with emptiness just blank,
Vindictive,Cold as ice, mind is evil as the body seems to have no soul.
