Flawed Humans

Being human makes us weak,
Call it a flaw maybe,
Or just our way of being,
But it still remains as it is…
We are weakened by being human.

Love ain’t weak…
Nor is it made for the strong,
Neither is it reserved for the broken,
Love is for us all…
Even when it changes us.

You are my strength…
You are my weakness,
When I hold you near,
When I feel you closer,
When you own my soul.

Scary scars I carry…
Bleeding wounds I have,
A drilled worm hole within,
Filled with empty promises,
Made of memories afterburns.

Pain lives on through my soul,
My soul withers to shreds of dust,
My heart breaks to pieces that can’t live on,
And time forgets it’s healing at the sight of my wounds.

This bloody heart remembers,
My weak body fears to take another step,
As it’s swollen with blurred visions,
Littered with dreams of yesterday!

My tomorrow reeks of yesterday,
Flowered and scarred in regrets I carry,
Charred lips coloured in shades of lies…
Too broken to speak of yesterday!

This day I wallow in the pit of my mind,
In words lost in the demons of my past,
Scared shit of the stench of who I was…
Afraid of the being I will finally morph into.

At your feet I now lay,
Bruised but brave,
Damaged but fixable,
Lost but willing to be found.

Lay your hand on my heart,
Let your eyes gaze at my soul,
Let not your vision be blurred on me,
See me for who I am.

Love makes us weak and strong,
Both of them in equal measure,
Enough of me wandering like a zombie…
Feed me with your blood-renew me.

I’m a flawed human,
I’m among the lost souls in limbo,
I need to cross to the light somewhere ahead…
Guide me forth-be my bridge to the light.

For Rae Lyric…#SheOfTheSun

Words by her still longer…her image and voice will always linger and stay immortalised for time to come

The date that was…but she wouldn’t make it for the occasion..

Tributes shared…

Feelings laid bare…

A’ll that are clear,are our feelings through words for you…

End of an era it may be,but a new one sure has started and that will live for ever…

Let your ever radiant spark illuminate your path…

Thus at your absence we hold on to your presence that graced us …

The passion that was in for all of us…

The warmth and vigour experienced within your words and art…

We carry your light with us for all to see and back in…

A different path you take,

One away from us…

The steps you walked

The lives you touched

The smiles you shared

All that and more

Forever with us they’ll love

This may seem as an end

But still fill like a beginning

This sure ain’t goodbye …

This is a see you soon.

Shine on Rae…Shine on!!

Everyday all day its all about art and being artists. We are artists in our own mettle,not just because its what we do…but because we are too large to live in this life only as one character. The world is our stage and we are playing out our parts.

Our Daily Poetry Charity…

It takes more than just blood to form familial ties that bind…

It takes more than just words to express the deep set feelings that express all that we feel within us…

All we need in life is more love, laughs and that makes life more worth!!

It matters not who you are, what you think your circumstance makes you… We all are one…

So make moments now with all those that count…

Smile wider and let your light shine brightest…

Take pictures and freeze that opportune feeling in time…

Help all, even when you know they can’t help you at that moment…

D

Dance it all out through all seasons, make your own music if need be… And show your steps and moves to all

Service to others is the real humanity we need, so go out and serve…

Be afraid not of the challenges, for they make us strong…

Be all that you can be, for you are the best version of yourself that ever existed!!

When it seems you are failing, do not quit…. But with like minded individuals, take time off, regroup, brainstorm and come out stronger…

Teaching is the noblest form of profession… Teach and guide them, and watch them learn and come out approved by all

Above it all, give thanks to Him who is the author and finisher of it all. For its Him who gives us strength to do all that which we do… It’s by His grace, favour and love, that we see it all as joy and we delight in him.

Looking back at it all, it’s all joy, love and favour.

May the good Lord continue guiding your way little ones!!

Our Daily Poetry…

Giving hope!

YOUR WOMAN

Set her up above the rest,
See her smile widen as she goes up,
Let her smile give joy to the rest,
Her twinkling eyes lighting up our paths,
Her laugh ringing in our hearts,
Her words touching our soul,
Yes…
She is the woman,
Your woman.

ESSENCE OF COLOUR 

She understands not

The rush of it all

Of the various colours you wear

From whom are you hiding?

What really are you hiding?

Is there really a reason,

Of the various shades you have,

Changing more drastically than the seasons?

All this and more she wonders,

Too shocked to ask,

But still curious to find out!
Why hide the scars beneath

Yet they tell of a conquered past?

Why hide the dark spotty spots,

Yet in them she sees a passed teenage?

The dark black or brown markings

Along your eyes I see their marks

Is it to prevent the flowing tears?

Or are you covering the seen past

To clear way for a brighter day?

Your bloody lips she fears,

As its colour can never erase

All the words uttered in the past,

Nor can they sweeten,

To calm the unseen wraths!
Convert her not

To your undefined clique

That takes the beauty of colour

Too far and too much

To destroy the already beautiful form

That was once the real you

Maybe to the ways of the world

She is too young to understand

What really the essence of colour entails,

But for now please spare her,

Let her watch you in bewilderment,

And maybe…

Just maybe,

She too will know that essence!

ALL WILL BE WELL. 

Times comes and seasons pass,

Each day I find a new reason to surpass,

All this anguish that lives within,

Of the distance that cuts right within,

To keep us together and still far apart,

Physically away but together at heart.
Right from my ribs you were born, 

and behind yours I found life. 

thus distance  hath done it’s part,

you my love, are in my heart

and that’s where I shall keep you always.
In the wide world we both wandered,

In the deep blue seas adrift we each sailed,

From the south you came along,

To the east your path led you to me,

Now in our hearts forever we are entwined!
from the river bed I watched our love like  tides pushes back and forth,

fighting doubts and obstacles.

for a moment I lost my thoughts to you,

thou  proved without doubt you worth every sweat.
Many at my presence have come,

Tall ones and the fair ones alike,

But to you Im still betrothed,

For you I will for ever wait on,

Till when I have you in arms,

I shall always stay by you.
temptation showcased her talent,

but my eyes hath only sight for you.

still! “unquaked” 

was my trouser

for your thoughts weight more than a moment pleasure,

and that’s how much I value you.
With you in heart Im happy,

Despite the distance between us 

I shall always be with you

Deep within me I know,

Someday all shall be well with us.
Distance may trophy my Corp, 

But you have my soul, 

And I shall someday find my way to your arms

For home is where the heart is,

and you are but my Kingdom!
