What is at stake?

Standard

What does one do,
When their feelings are real,
But the one they are towards,
Doesn’t know how you feel?

The answer seems easy,
But there’s too much at stake,
I’ve been wondering if,
It’s a risk I should take.

Given time, questions will unfold

 And show the answers held within them.

The Little things that matter

Standard

 

You know about one of those random people and their acts that just make your day? Something like that happened to me. Yesterday I was in the store trying to choose between two identical products, but I really was just standing there lost in my thoughts blocking the entire aisles. This old man trying to come through stopped to say hi, and made his way between my cart, my thoughts, and I.
I don’t know how much time elapsed, but he eventually came back through the aisle were I was still standing staring at the same items… Or at life.
He asked me if I was deciding, and somehow he woke me up. I tried to answer but I couldn’t get a word out. Just nodded my head in half a smile. I must have been carrying the misery of the world on my face because he stood there with me for a minute and gave me a warm smile that translated to me as : “Everything will be ok child”. He dug in his pocket and handed me a handful of candy… (I am grown enough to accept candy from stranger.)
He brought tears to my eyes and warmed my heart.

What made me happy is that, at times when you think that everything is going bad and nothing good is left in the world, you see these little acts of kindness and a little faith in humanity is restored.

One simple act of kindness or humanity could mean the world to somebody

Lonely Girl

Standard

A lonely girl wanders the world
Searching for her poor lost soul
Waiting for lightning to strike her heart
Waiting for thunder to tear her apart

She’s never felt a butterfly’s flutter
Simple words always made her stutter
A tortured heart with the soul of a child
A nervous laugh and a beautiful smile

The neighborhood boys with jokes all the same
Pulling her hair and calling her names
Taking more than she ever could bare
Feeling the rip long after the tear

Millions of people suffer day after day
Hatred and destruction is what they say
Women are from Venus, men from Mars
and she’s just a local girl with local scars

Quote of the Week

Standard

“Your first mistake was loving someone who doesn’t know what love really is. It was giving them the power to ruin you, giving them enough strength to crush your soul with two fingers, and even worse, a few words. your second mistake was telling them how much you need them, how your soul longed for something like this, how you can’t imagine long nights without them. Your third mistake was falling too fast for the idea of who they were, the soft hints of hate you missed in their words, the points of concern you should’ve noticed. Your fourth mistake loved them more. Loving each little bruise and bone, being convinced each scar had a story, even when it didn’t. Connecting the freckles on their back into constellations and secretly wishing this would last forever, baby no, you can’t wish on stars that aren’t bright. and they, they were always dark and dull. they looked at you with bored eyes, you were convinced they were only ever tired. they held you with careless, clumsy, arms. Arms that never shook from holding on too tight, you kissed with motionless lips, slept with a body and no soul. But, it’s not your fault. It’s easy to fall for an idea, especially when it’s got big brown eyes and a heartbeat that sounds like your favorite song.” -Isabel C., Four

Change

Standard

Every circumstance in life has the potential to be a learning experience. If you are open to it, life has a way of changing you. Every second you can change. Change the way you think. Change the way you view the world. Change the way you live. Change the way you treat others. You can always choose to change for the better or to change for the worst. It is all a choice. With those choices, come the repercussions and rewards. Whether good or bad, every experience is a lesson that you can allow to affect you in a positive or a negative way.

Perfectly Imperfect

Standard

In a world full of imperfections find the beauty in mistakes, trials, and hard times. You are not a bad person because of mistakes you’ve made in the past. You are not broken because of tough things you’ve been through. You are perfectly imperfect, that’s what makes you human. Seeing through someone’s imperfections and loving one another (not just romantically but in any aspect) that’s the difference between being a negative person and a positive one. There are so many positive things that come from the negative parts of life. Embrace every aspect of life and love one another. There’s nothing more respectable than loving someone for who they are no matter where they’ve been or what they’ve gone through. Everyone needs to know they mean something to someone
