Purgatory

A poem of thorns pinned on bed of roses Picture gotten from–Electricshadow The growth of fear began in guilt, well polished and hidden by lies. Only those who feel for you, read meaning into your choice of how you wish to pray. Sacred. I met a stranger, I met her lost in thoughts of how…

Surviving May June

In all, pleasure sorted itself out in dark corners. I had promised my failures that we wouldn’t cross paths again. My timetable never said otherwise. I lost the weak ones. Those who couldn’t keep up with the wind that came after my very own air. I lost friends, made new ones, met him and kept…

Enough

One word we don’t know how to quantify as it’s got no value. Picture gotten from-Icouldn’tkeep We don’t always know when to say “enough” that’s why we always choose to accept. Accept whatever it is that is thrown to us. We settle, we concur, we say “yes”, we agree, we follow, we depend on, we…

Secrets to trusting that “it will work”

“We did not search for survivors, but those who survived for our search party” Dyna Ekwueme When we really want something, whether it’s a job, material thing or basic needs, we go beyond our might to see that we get it. Sometimes we lose ourselves and part of us in hope that it would come…

The Heart’s culture #22

Have you ever wondered why people and things you put in mind trigger love or hate? It isn’t magic that you function that way. You are simply being human. When your heart beats, it does so for danger, joy, hate or love. You’ve been programmed that way. Learning to nurture your heart with what pleases you is…

Reflection- Week 1 recap #7

Remember why you started? For the past week we’ve trailed on the path of understanding ourselves as humans. Recollecting events and and substituting the bad ones for good. we opened our hearts to accepting what’s right instead of wrong and analysing each day with thoughts and an act/ acts of goodness. Today I want us to…

Love #5

What holds us, love. The commitment you give to your work is for love, the things we fight for in life is all because of love. Different religions all preach love, nothing else and we all would die for love. This should have been my new beginning (#1) in this journey, but it all started…

True act of goodness is seen not read or said. It possesses you like no other. Your heart radiates with words that heal and mend.You give genuine compliments and share laughter with strangers and friends. Even when you thread on sour souls, you are never diluted, you outshine. Remember that one person that was good to…

Essence #2

You pose as an oppressor to people and things that you think you dominate. As superior to the less informative, but does that make you any less ignorant or foolish? I started this morning with this rhetorical question to write on the essence of humility in this journey. I must be a humble person to…
