Peace In

So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality, nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit.
If we are always having trouble getting over some things or down and caged in the world of the negatives, if we are afraid to get up and dust our feet, we will find yourself worrying over these things, and this is the greatest thief of happiness and peace. There is no peace in worry neither does it breed happiness. Today, start an initiative to let go things unnecessary and embrace what breeds peace of mind.

To Them That Never Leave                                     (for my Best friend)

Tide and market come and go

So do fall and winter their seasons

In the void of the heart

It finds air to breath and space to sit

When tide returns

And market women their homes

It lingers like innocent cat

..And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves.

1 Thessalonians 5:13
                                                         

Keep On

*Determination is the ability to keep trying, and to keep moving towards a goal, no matter what*

It is in getting back up no matter how many times we fall down. People who have mastered determination are not necessarily people who have never failed, or even those who have failed many times.

People with determination are those who get up and keep going, who learn from what went wrong and adjust course, and who believe in themselves despite all obstacles. The difference between eventual success and failure can be a true sense of determination. (Everyday Power)

We need not to take our eyes off the target, instead, keep the race alive. For as many times you may have fallen and whatever has happened to you is gone, that’s why it is called ‘past’, get up but do not forget what let you down, rather let it be a motivation to try harder and with better schemes.
*We all have dreams.  But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.” – Jessie Owens*

Alert

If at night

You sit out the door

With your lamp blaring

And these strangers 

Pass a hundred times

Without greeting

Know this,

Be careful

For something is wrong
If at dawn

You set out for work

And pass by neighbors

Greet but received none

Be careful

For something isn’t  right
If in time

You pass by market women

With empty baskets

But still seated

Greet but do not wait
If by the farm

You meet her

Beautiful and stunning

Asking to be helped her load

Pass quickly

Do not wait
If at the town gate

You meet her with stick

Old and done with years

Asking for way into the town

Walk quickly

Do not wait
If per chance

Nothing happened

Be careful

For it is living to be tempted

Echo

 Echo

“Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine”

We constantly set our eyes on something great, which is okay, but we forget that small particles make up the bricks that make a mansion. If you want to become a doctor or a lawyer or whatever it is that you aspire, you understand that you have to thread the path to such occupation. There is no jumping of classes or not having required certificates. Just like being on a lift, you start from the ground floor to whichever floor you are going to. In other words, there are little things you think don’t matter but go a long way in shaping who you want to become. They are like ‘mini tasks’ and we experience them almost everyday. So, when you go out tomorrow and see that old woman/man who wants to cross the busy road, or a kid trying to lift a load, the urge to pray for someone, response to peoples’ greetings, or in whatever incidence which you may be required to respond, remember that your actions, responsiveness and inactions are part of who and what you become in the future.
*The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine*  M. Murdock

Tis Ma Song

Tis  ma song

And ama sing it

In this poesy

With the tip of my pen

Tis  ma song

Its a freelance

Wherefore thou get it

Dunor pay!

For ma words are priceless

And ma thoughts you cannot buy

I give it as he had given

Tis ma song

To everyone

Black of white

Passers-by and market women

To er’yone 

This ma words

Is the air you breathe

And the season you feel

Homesick

Mother hen eyes are swollen

Cried like endless stream

While its owner do away with her dead chick

But she will have her back

As her husband foretold

So she waits patiently

Till the dead rise with the new generation

The lambs are gone now

To the mountain where thunder strikes

To them a voyage

They cannot be struck

For their food by the tree lay untouched

So they play by thunder

And in eventide come sliding home

Like hoe given to the blacksmith

Refine to the finest knight 

By fire the punisher makes

Then shall it return to serve the purpose

To which they made it
