Shelter

You provided shelter for me during the storm,Even when my pride wouldn’t allow it. You guided me secretly,Gently swept me off my feet. Softly whispered into my ears,Especially when I closed my eyes in defeat. You promised that I’d survive,And strive again. Now that some time has passed,I appreciate everything you’ve done.And I see it…

Rejection.

After my writing got rejected few times I wanted to quit because I felt that I was going around in circles. BUT there is always something inspirational about this journey & small lessons that make it all worth it. I never noticed until yesterday that after each failure a new short story was born. I’ve written 6…

Find Me.

When you’ve lost your way,Try and find me.I’m the aroma which often floats majestically,Announcing my miracles,And that there’s so much more than meets the eye.

And I regret I’m no fan of pretending…

May Memories…

I’m terrified of acknowledging how much time has passed,Because there’s been a lot of life that hasn’t been lived,Moments that have been ignored. It terrifies me to think that so much has happened in a short amount of time,Maybe it would’ve made more sense if it had happened in the course of a decade.Maybe it…

The Prayer.

Moments before I close my eyes I think of you,And the beautiful memories we share. I know you’ve felt like a caged bird for so long,And now that you’re flying away,I often fear that you’ll stray too far,And forget who you truly are. When tears are about to flow from my eyes,I recite a prayer…
