What Keeps you Sane

What keeps you sane?When your plans are failing,And dreams are collapsing,When your mistakes are monumental What keeps you sane,Are your attempts, at being better,You're small actions of little consequence,You're intentions despite your shortcomings What keeps you sane?When you have to give up despite your best efforts,When confronted by your irredeemable flaws,When you must move on,… Continue reading What Keeps you Sane

Poetry

From Afar

Fire flies floating in the air,Glowing or burning,Magnificently,Nature's crown jewel Honey bees hovering,Over a garden of orchids,Bright shades of colour,Not meant to be touched, For then you could be stung.Suppose you went for the lair,You could be swarmed,The sweet scent of honey Was forbidden treasure,The majestic lion,Walked with pride,Leaving it's onlookers in awe Dare to… Continue reading From Afar

Fire Fist

Punch the air in anger,Or with frustration,Perhaps with a look of triumph,A spontaneous exhibition of emotion An outlet for your passion,of long awaited victory,or one too many blunders,That's a fist of fire Upholding dreams and aspirations,Denouncing slip-ups and mediocrity,Those soaring fists,will carry you to the heavens

Something,Anything,But not that,Where's the other option… Continue reading Paradoxes

Perspectives

Change

Everyday is a new day,A new day where something has changed,Cause everything always changes,Irrevocably, even if it's infinitesimally small Reminiscing the good old days,Where everything was simpler,Regretting our terrible choices,The lies we tell ourselves The world is changing,you could change along with it tooAccept the past for shaping who we are,And shaping ourselves for tomorrow… Continue reading Change

Hiatus

Slowing down the breakneck speed,Into a consistent routine,the motivation is starting to dwindle,and inspiration comes a little less often So I may be gone a few days,and the enthusiasm may be smaller,But I'll be there,Cause, it's turned from a whirlwind into a routine It's not a bad thing, I think,That's how it sustains,From a sprint… Continue reading Hiatus
