Tell me

You need to overcome the tug of people against you as you reach for high goals.

George S. Patton

Tell me, how can my favorite cuisine
Bring me bliss after kissing your sweet lips?


Tell me, if I’ll still want to eat my favorite meal
After tasting those succulent lips of yours.

Tell me, if after laughing at your jokes
I will still find other things funny


Or if everything that doesn’t involve you
Will simply bring me doom and gloom.

Tell me, that I’ll still find bird-song pleasing
Even after listening to your mesmerizing voice.


Tell me, that the sunset shall remain resplendent
Even after I’ve gazed into your eyes and set sights upon your bright smile.

Slow and Steady

Life before death, strength before weakness, journey before destination.

Brandon Sanderson – The Storm-light Archives, The Way of Kings

Slow and steady
wins the race every time.
It may not come first
but slow and steady
always emerges victorious
for fast and furious
even though it may not come last
is so fleeting you’ll end up forgetting
the moments which led to you coming first.

Don’t cry

The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.

Vince Lombardi

Oh! my love
please don’t cry, cry, cry
when I die, die, die


Try to say goodbye
without shedding any tears


Please, please don’t cry
just dry your eyes
and quiet your cries.

Be happy that i am free
from the suffering of life.

The Blogosphere | A Place

Be patient, if something is supposed to happen, it’s going to happen.

Chiara Ferragni

It’s a world on its own
In time
I’ve come to call it my home
For not only
Is it the place where my heart is
It’s also where my craft is

It’s a place
to unleash my creativity
A place to hone my craft
A place to meet and greet
And get to know people that will show
You how to wow at the wonder of life.

It’s a place to get inspired
It is my favorite place

Love You Forever

Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time.

George Bernard Shaw

I will
love you, forever

I will, never
stop loving you

Even when your physical beauty
begins to fade with time
and it becomes nothing but a memory of yesterday
I will endeavor to make rhyme
my actions with my words.

And so
I will, never
ever
stop loving you

For I made a vow
that I will
love you forever.

I’m in love, again

Believe in yourself, push your limits, and do whatever it takes to conquer your goals.

Retrieved from The Motivation app

I’m in love, again
after so many years
I’m in love again
with you, so I shed tears
of joy, cause I’m in love, again.

It’s been a while
but I’m in love again
although I risk much pain
by being in love again
I will smile a big smile
for I am in love again
with you.

With you I am in love
and although I risk much pain
I know there is much to gain
from being in love again.

So I smile a big smile
for after so many years
it’s good to know my heart
has not forsaken it’s art.

Worry if you want to feel sorry

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential, these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

Confucius

Worry, worry, worry
if you ever want to feel sorry
then worry, worry, worry
that you may never reach your glory.

Worry, worry, worry
about your life story
if you want to feel sorry
then do worry, worry, worry.

If your history is plagued by worry
Then be sure that eventually you’ll be sorry
For worry, worry, worry does not lead to glory.

On Way To Your Destination

Speak less than you know, have more than you show.

William Shakespeare

Whenever you are about to go on a journey
I know its hard not to think about your destination
but I’ll remind you to be mindful of the moments
that pass you by, while on your way to your destination.

While on your way to your destination, be mindful
of the moments that pass you by, enjoy the scenery
revel in the mystery of it all, because it will
eventually come to an end.

In Nature

When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.

Audre Lorde

Out in nature
a breeze blows
and the grass bends
into the direction of the wind.

All the tall trees
start to sway
from side to side.

Whilst the birds on their tops
take to the sky, in flocks that fly
up to summit the clouds.
