Forget Me Not



Quote of the day:
The question is not what you look at, but what you see -Henry David 



Many things have happened 
water passed under this living bridge

there's a seige on our emotions
everything that i wanted i let go

memories are leaves
and i walk on them daily 

i remember you
i remember your eyes
the twinkle in them and those smiles....

i remember us 
i remember our dreams
the beauty of it intoxicating...

i remember life...

future looked so far away...
now it's just another day 

i remember you...

violin strings of melody
you and i Siamese twins-what a tragedy

When Will You Understand


Quote of the day:
What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality -Otto Rank

One day you'll understand that i can't always be there..
I'm always one to have a listening ear...
a problem solver..
I've got my own problems too, my own thoughts you know.

But it's funny how people think they can always come to you for help...
you help them once...and they keep coming.
they always expect you to find solutions for them, no matter what...

Do they ask if you've got your own problems? 
No...
It's all about gimme,gimme and gimme...

But hey, one day you'll understand...
sometimes you need to let go..
i can't always be there..to solve your problems

One day you'll understand
that you need to solve your own problems.

One Step at a Time..


Quote of the day:
Anything one man can imagine, other men can make real -Jules Verne


For everyone that has ever made a comment on this blog -aprreciate it all, nice looking out..
You all are too many to mention...but you know yourselves!



So lately i've been thinking...
about that line...that perimeter
that boundary...

That border that seperates us...so called limitations in life
I surprise myself every now and then....
breaking the shackles of limitations...

'
you will never achieve anything'...

words from a mere mortal.
consistently i've been on the rise eversince..

With head held up high always.
a bird flying away from stormy weather...
a star hidden behind drifting clouds.

I'm a learner still...
never been one to follow the crowd.
if i did how would i ever express my individuality?
how would i ever find myself...

So lately i've been thinking...
in my happy place....where i go for healing...for freedom.

So if the words you speak were ever to blot out the sun...
i'd be underneath the shade...me with my thoughts

Me...in my happy place.

A Friend Amongst Many



Quote of the day:
A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world -Leo Buscaglia


A little touch...
If you are not here

the moon the stars...
they dont mean  much.

Truth is? Life is timeless
We eat... 
we fight we sleep... 
but occasionally we grieve

A little hope...
people starve -no food  
people leave - so soon

But with you
life is more meaningful...
dozen roses in a centerpiece...
no fights, just an inner peace.

Call a friend now.....
call your friend...Old or new 
let them know you admire them. 


Remember to have a great and eventful week !!

I Dreamed A Dream


Quote of the day:
You're the only one who can make the difference. Whatever your dream is, go for itEarvin Magic Johnson


Assumption is really the mother of all mistakes...
This post's inspiration comes from Susan Boyle
This is my 150th post by the way...

From the Britain's Got Talent Show, watch her rendition of - "I Dreamed a Dream"from the musical "Les Misérables...


I DREAMED A DREAM

Have you ever been laughed at....
made fun of...

Looked down upon..
for one reason or the other...

What was your reaction
when that happened...

Did you cry your eyes out...
or did you prove them wrong...

when you were given the chance...
did you prove them wrong...
disrespect turning to respect? 

Never give up on yourself...
never let the dreams fly away.

A Drop of Silence


Quote of the day:
When a thought is too weak to be expressed simply, simply drop it -Marquis de Vauvenargues



My thoughts 
so many...these days

my eyes...
a window to the world

timeless...
breathless...

forgive me 
for my thoughts...
too varied to be simply expressed...

a drop of silence.
in an ocean of dreams...

Happiness in a butterfly


Quote of the day:
It is a sad thing to look at happiness only through another's eyes -Marquerite Blessington

Are you happy...
or do you look at happiness only through another's eyes?..

Are you confident...
about yourself...your dreams, your goals.

are you...? 

are you happy with life...
would you rather you were someone else...
somewhere else...

do you smile outside...
and cry inside..
 
do you break down and cry in solitude....
do you?

next time leave the door open...
just for happiness to sneak in...like a butterfly.

never chase away that which makes you happy...
never chase away the butterfly.

My Secret Is ...


Quote of the day:
Look within!... The secret is inside you -Hui-neng


Secrets....
She had a lot to tell i felt. 
Only people with secrets ask others for theirs.
it's something i've come to know....

So when we got talking...
mid-way she says 'tell me your secrets'....
i knew. i just knew that she had a lot to tell.

so what did i do?
I played along. I being the hunter played the hunted.

I told her one secret or two...
you see it wasn't enough. She wanted more...
something darker than light...

She had an aura surrounding her
a mix of venom and antidote....
her eyes were clandestine like. 

It was getting late...
but still she whispered 'tell me your secrets'...
before i could decide, she said okay i'll tell you mine.

her secrets never moved me...
i knew she had a lot to tell.
only people with secrets ask others for theirs...

her secrets never moved me...
only her eyes did.
