As I Awake [A Lai]

I quit being afraid when my first venture failed and the sky didn’t fall down

Allen H. Neuharth

And as i awake
At dawn by the lake
My mind
Of you starts to bake
Thoughts, so eat the cake
I find
I must; though its fake
And sick it will make
My mind.

A Pen

Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.

William James

Your mind
is the pen that writes


On the paper of your brain,
either a reality that brings pain;


Or one that makes you gain
a life will not be tainted by a stain.

Ask A Villain to Explain

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing

George Bernard Shaw

Oh! Villain from the train whom i do disdain
For putting me in pain made me strain my brain.
Like an animal in chains i could remain
Only within the bonds of my mental plain
So my thoughts could never soar high like a plane.

“Can you please explain, why you wanted to contain
My merriment by going as far as to drain
My good mood by hitting me with your cruel cane
So that i did gain a sore stain on my skin
That made me look away from the lane of sane.”

To Inspire

Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.

C.S. Lewis

When the sons, beneath the sun
Have eyes that twinkle not
Because circumstances in life look dire;

Never forget to try to develop a deep desire
To inspire a fire, in the hearts of your sires
And their sons.

Consciousness

It’s been a while I know, but here’s a beautiful post from Stuart’s blog which I recently started following

Lost In Nowhere

From the moment my consciousness sparks into light

My first thought is of you

🌑

I marvel at your cosmic beauty

Feel your sublime radiance

Hear your heavenly voice

🌑

You are my strength from weakness

My hope from loss

My future

My present

🌑

You are the glorious songbird in the morning

The healing sun at midday

The calming light of the moon in the evening

🌑

As my consciousness slips away at the end of the day

My last thought is of you

Only I know your name

The Calm Before the Storm (Alana’s Song)

A am lulled to fall asleep, to dream deep in the calm before the storm…

Alphabet Ravine

“It was the calm before the storm
that stole my breath
with its icy silence.

In those everlasting seconds,
instead of his raging words’ predictable humming,
the still left you wondering what would be coming.
His face wouldn’t wear its usual anger, but a death-like grief,
as though he knew what monster would soon be unleashed.

‘Don’t hold it in!’ I was dying to cry to him.
‘That makes its bursting that much more violent!’

I did what I could- I anticipated, and how I hated
the calm before the storm.

Before the calm, you could see the storm clouds brewing,
but the churn of the sky- it was so close to soothing

Balance

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

Zig Ziglar

I am not
more grateful for my pen
that bleeds its blood out, to talk about
practicing to perfect practicing


Then i am
of my paper


Where i wield words
with a will, inspires me to hold, my quill with a skill
dazzles damsels distressed not to stress
and torn man not to morn, when there is less.
