You’ve got to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.
Embrace a positive way of thinking And you will be a light in the darkness A gardener, in mind, positive thoughts planting Embrace a positive way of thinking And in the dark cloud see the silver lining Unless you want darkness to dismiss your bliss Embrace a positive way of thinking And you will be a light in the darkness.
Well hello there friend. How are you doing today? Very well I hope.
Thanks for stopping by, your presence here always fills me with gratitude.
This year, I shed a tear not only in honor of those who lost their lives to the global pandemic that’s taken the world by storm, but also for all those times I missed out on blogging.
I won’t beat myself up too much for not blogging as much as wanted to, instead I’ll prime myself to be a better blogger next year.
It is exactly because I haven’t been blogging consistently, however, that I’m really appreciative for the fact that my blog has kept on growing.
It is because of people like you who take time out to visit even when I’m not here. For that, I wish you all the best for the coming new year.
For today, I will be sharing a sonnet I composed recently in the hope that it enhances your day in any way whatsoever. If it does don’t be shy to let me know in the comment section, I’m always happy to hear from you.
So without further adue…
‘Oh Ear!’ how happy I am you are here. I know you’ve been by my side my whole life, But before I could never see you clear, So I’d not know if you could hear my voice. But now that I can see you I can say That without you my life would have been dull. I don’t know without you beside my skull If I’d even be able to dance for joy. In fact, I’m not sure I want to find out. I can’t imagine my life without you. A life where to listen I have no clue Will surely lead me to kick the bucket For life’s a song and it demands dancing But I can’t dance if I’m not listening.
I haven’t been posting as usually as I would like to–school has been keeping me beezier than a public bus–so I’m really glad you haven’t abandoned me. Domo arigato gozaimasu to you.
Wherever you are, I wish you a splendid day ahead. If your day is just ending than I hope you had a super-fragilistic-expiali-docious day, and pray that you will wake up tomorrow with a glow that shows your passion to play the game of life as best you can.
Today, I just wanted to share an entry from my Gratitude Journal with you, not only to elevate my thoughts and thus my emotions and feelings, or to emphasize the powerful nature of words, but mostly to inspire you to look at life through the lens of gratitude and positivity.
So without further adue…
Once again, thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day and week.

I’ve been searching and searching But not finding any answers to my questions
I’ve been searching for a path into the temple of happiness But it seems I’ve been searching and searching In all the wrong places.
It seems I may never find the temple of happiness That I’ll forever keep taking shelter In this shack of sadness I find myself in For I’ve been searching and searching for years But I’m not finding answers to my questions.
Where is this so-called temple of happiness I’m failing to find? And how do I enter through its gates?
These are the questions that plague every waking hour of my day They are the questions which keep me up at night I just hope I’m not doomed to keep searching and searching But not finding any answers to my questions.
Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.
Creepy Crawly climbing quickly up the tall wall. Creepy Crawly is climbing quickly up the wall. Will he fall? Only God can tell why Creepy Crawly is climbing quickly up the wall even though he may fall to his hell.
Well hello there friend! I’m glad you joined me today.
It’s Monday once again, and thankfully it is not a blue one for me. I really hope it’s the same for you too, that it’s not clouded by any negativity. That instead the weather in your mind is sunshine and clear blue skies.
Today’s poem is a fabrication of reality. There wasn’t no creepy crawly climbing quickly up the wall that inspired me to write it. Well, at least not in the physical environment since it was all just in my head. The poem was inspired by my desire to play with alliteration. I wrote it a few weeks ago in my poetry journal, and since then it has been begging for me to share it on my blog.
And so, because I don’t have the mouth to say ‘No’ to poems begging me to be shared, I hope you enjoyed it and that it somehow lifted your mood from bad to good–even just for a second.
If so, then do not be shy to let me know in the comment section below–I’m always delighted to hear from you.
