I always tell people that nothing good ever came out of the comfort zone. In fact, if anything, it’s the comfort zone that always holds us back. It keeps us from attaining our real potentials. As the title clearly states, I would love to discuss pain and how it is a catapult to achieve greaterContinue reading “Of pain and why it matters.”
Our existence is the embodiment of hope. The fact that you breathe is hope in itself. Life is hope. But I’ve come to understand that hope is a very dangerous thing. Hope is what breaks you. It is what brings the strongest of men (and or women) to their knees. And since life is hope and hope is dangerous, then life is dangerous in itself. You can’t live and not expect bad things to happen. At one point or the other in life, certain things shall and will happen. But because we hope only for the good things, occurrence of bad things will break us. Just Imagine winning a 5 million dollar cheque! Imagine this happening and you did not hope for it to happen? That overwhelming feeling, the adrenaline, the energy is inversely equivalent to what you feel when you break because something happened that you did not hope for.
Those that hope the most get broken hardest. But they are same people have changed the world. Hope breaks us but it is also hope that pushes us to achieve the impossible. Hope builds the world. So we can’t stop hoping simply because we don’t want to get broken. Life is a risk in itself. The uncertainty of tomorrow is the biggest risk. But to reach tomorrow, you need that hope. That hope that can get you there or break you.
In the middle of nowhere
I see windmills everywhere
The wind whispers in my ear
“Solomon, there is energy far and near”
I just can’t figure out where.
I guess a trip down nowhere
Will give you the energy to go everywhere
So never cry because you’re nowhere
Trust me, I’ve been there.
“I get lonely sometimes. No, I get lonely most times. No, No, I am just lonely” -Solomon- We’re told that it’s the words we proclaim that build us or break us. Well, I know there is some truth to that. But sometimes, words simply can’t break us any further. Instead, those meant to break usContinue reading “Lone Wolf”
‘Moonlight’ The tall dark slender shadows The contrast between deep and shallow Chirping crickets, death’s silence Remind me that never shall I be in your presence Maybe in the afterlife…… ‘Starlight’ The tiny little silverlings that line the sky The breeze on clear nights, the air so dry The depth, the distance between IsContinue reading “LIGHTS”
I see the storms forming above;
Yet fear I see not in your eyes.
By the day you face the darkest of fears
And the wait by night as the pain dries.
In you a ruthless Viking I see,
I see footprints all over this valley of tears.
Through earthquakes, storms, el Nino you lived.
Low at high tide, Lower at low tide.
You went back to olden days when men gathered to survive.
Only you gather hope,
Too see the moons and stars of tomorrow.
