What are you afraid of?

Are you afraid that you might prove the inner voice of fear wrong and frighten yourself by succeeding?

There is nothing to fear in your pursuits, but everything to gain.

If you pause to listen to the silence within, there is teeny-weeny voice that nudges you in the direction to take in your aspirations and then there is also the other louder voice in the cacophony of voices telling you not to do it.

What is life?

A spoke some truths here about what life is. I totally agree.

My Love for One Day

Everyone had gone home. The service was over. I hid behind the trees, it will be weird if anyone saw my tears. My eyes should be puffy red by now. Even in my black jumpsuit and black rimmed glasses I knew I look pathetic. **** We grew up in the same neighbourhood. We went to… Continue reading My Love for One Day


On the wheels

So fast we move On the wheels Letting go our wills Letting go our traditions And so it is time to celebrate In an unconventional way It is time to throw out the trash And live for the first time For the first time in our lives. Seated behind the wheels With mischief in mind… Continue reading On the wheels
