My Honest Poem

I saw this on the internet, and I was completely blown away. So, I am doing the right and honourable thing and SHARING IT WITH ALL OF YOU  :)


I've been told that I give bad hugs
People say it feels like I'm trying to escape
It’s probably because I am
Secretly I get really nervous 
Every time someone gets close enough to hear me breathe

I have an odd fascination with things like sand castles and ice sculptures
I assume it’s because I usually find myself dedicating time to things that will only last a few moments
I guess that’s why I fall in love with things that will never love me back
I know that sounds crazy but it’s easier than it seems and to be honest I think it’s safer that way
You see relationships often remind that I'm not afraid of heights or falling
But I am scared to death of everything that's going to happen the very moment that my body hits the ground

I'm clumsy
Yesterday I tripped over my self-esteem
Landed on my pride and it shattered like a Iphone with a broken face
Now I can’t even tell who’s trying to give me a compliment 
I've never been in the military but I have this purple heart
I got it from beating myself up over things I can’t fix

Some days I treat my body like a costume and I feel like a mascot for a school no body wants to go to
I know this sounds weird but I wonder what my bed sheets say about me when I'm not around
I wonder what the curtains would do if they found out about all the things I've done behind their back
I have a hamper that’s over flowing with really really loud mistakes
And a grave yard in my closet
I'm afraid if I let you see my skeletons
You’d grind my bones into powder and get high off my fault lines.

I often forget my skin is not a panic room
I enjoy frozen yoghurt, people watching, and laughing for absolutely no reason
But I don’t allow myself to cry as often as I need to
I have solar power confidence
And a battery operated smile

My hobbies include
Editing my life story
Hiding behind metaphors 
And trying to convince my shadow...
That I'm someone worth following

Amazing, right? RIGHT! 

Ok then, have an absolutely amazing end to the month of January :)

I still, (I) never, (I have) learned

I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason and intellect intended us to forgo their use.  ~Galileo Gallilei~

HAPPY NEW YEAR FOLKS!!! (It's not yet 15th so you best wish me a happy one too, in the comment box below... Yes that one. Thank you. :-)

Just a small note: My last post for 2012 is not a reflection of how my year ended.... I was so blown away by 2012 and its awesomeness, words failed me. I was as happy as a lark(ess).

So for 2013: Well, here goes

I never thought I'd see the day I loose sleep over a broken nail yet,
I still bite my nails

I still do not want to get married yet,
I tear up at weddings; regardless of whether or not the bride and groom are known to me

I still haven't figured out this thing called life (which means I am not about to die right?) but,
I FINALLY have a 5-year plan (and I can stop getting creative during job interviews)

I finally have a 5-year plan yet;
I wish I could marry sleep and never go hungry and accomplish all my goals... Isn't life cruel?

I am my own harshest critic (and fan) but mostly critic yet,
I still think it is never that serious

I have CDO yet,
I have learned to accept that people want different things out of life and will do things differently from me

I have learned that I do not know where I would be without God, my family and friends (pay attention to the order of appearance)

I have learned that God is really the most A.W.E.S.O.M.E. friend I will ever have in the whole wide world... You heard me? In the whooooole wide world. Nothing like having Him on your side.

I have learned that prayer and faith actually do move mountains.

I have learned that gratitude can leave you speechless and having a grateful heart is by far one of the most amazing feeling I have ever experienced. 

I have gained a higher appreciation for the Serenity Prayer. It really is powerful. 

Lastly, today I learned not to worry about tomorrow because God is already there :) :) :) *Boom*

So, be happy, live life, laugh loudly, cry silently, pray passionately, feel and love freely in 2013. God is already way ahead of us into the year. 

Happy and blessed blessed blessed new year to each and everyone of you! It's going to be.......... 


*Happy dance*
