Be Optimistic

DownUp 0

Be optimistic in your life,
Believe that things will go your way,
And if you need a little help,
Take some time and pray.

You need to have positive thoughts,
The negative needs to leave,
And if you think long enough,
You truly will believe.

So you did think good thoughts,
And being optimistic made things right,
And it was all because,
You saw the light.

Love All the Same

DownUp +1

Bound by affinity
Where no truth seems to honest
And every glance means something more

We have to move forward
Like a car with no direction
A broken compass to guide us
And loss of all direction

We had to learn how to bend
How to scream
And how to love
And it doesn’t matter that I cant speak
For you can hear what i’m not saying

Maybe its not tradition
Its actually rather strange
But with a smile and a heart beat
Its love all the same.

Boarded Up In Blue

DownUp +1

“This house was once a home”, I thought.
Filled with people coming and going,
Living, loving, aging, dying, working, growing;
Not necassarily in that order.
As I road past the building-
the old little house on a tiny plot-
I slowed my pace;
I became enchanted.
My intrigue grew and grew;
I cannot tell you why.
Beyond the fact that the windows,
that once let in the light,
Were now boarded up in blue.
The panes had been replaced by sky blue painted wood.
And now, as viewed the lovely artistry,
All time seemed one, all motion stopped, a perfect peace,
as on a starry night,
took the place of my thoughts.
It lasted but an instant.
I wondered, then, as I returned,
aware of the ‘illusion’,
which one was real, the peace of that instant,
or my seat in the road.
As night turned to day again,
thoughts made their way.
I wished, for a moment,
(I knew more than wished),
that our Souls are like that old house.
At the end of our time
spent here on this earth,
our pain is no longer,
we exist anew,
in spirit and in peace,
as that house!

Whenever I see towards the sky,
I mostly ask the question why…
Why do all things happen in the world?
Why is it that whether a person is happy or sad can never be told?
Thousands of mind, thousands of question arise,
Still people think to be silent is always wise.
All are aware of the things going around,
But what is right and what is wrong can never be found…
There are a hell lot of problems today,
Are these not enough that terrorism is on its way?
People act as if nothing has taken place,
But there’s a lot of insecurity behind each happy face…
Still fighting among ourselves is hardly of any use,
Cause to be united is what we should choose.
So I pray before going to bed today,
That tomorrow would be a better place to live and I m sure that’s what everyone wants to say…

Life seems to go along.
Each day the sun comes up.
Each night the sun goes down.
Some days are good, some not so much.
Some days hold great joy.
Others hold heartbreak and sorrow.
As I look back on the years
I realize that there were more good than bad.
As the years went by
I was busy with husband,
And while I wasn’t looking closely,
My children grew up.
They moved out.
Some moved away.
I will always be a mother,
But not in the same every day way.
That part of my life,
The part that I had known and loved best
Had changed.
I realized I wasn’t ready.
I didn’t want this change in my life.
Nevertheless it came.

When I was a young mother;
So busy, tired, and sometimes stressed;
My father told me that someday I would look back and see
That these were the best days in my life.
He was right.

Fortunately the changes weren’t all bad.
My children had become great people.
Soon they had children and my role in life had changed again.
I am now Grandma and it is good;
So good.

So through this journey of change,
I have come to realize that it is inevitable and unstoppable.
Change like everything in life is really what we make of it,
How we accept and embrace it.
Growing up;
And hopefully great grand children; they are good changes to look forward to.
I try to remember that always.

Desire is like a fire.
It burns within the soul
It cannot be put out
and it makes a person whole

Setting it aside would make one feel content
But contentment only happens for a while
For desire builds up
And soon, there’s more in life to aspire

Behold in life a transition
There arise such dreams and visions
Along comes the longing to fulfill
Such high ambitions

All life long builds up the desire
Until soon it will become so great
Until one will take action
Life will just seem a worthless fate.

Because of you

DownUp +24

Because of you,
I’m able to see the sunshine behind rain.
Inspiring me to get up!
And to make a new start.

Because of you,
I’m able to see the light behind dark.
Showing me the right path.
And telling me not to go back.

Because of you,
I’m able to hear the silence behind noise.
Asking me to listen.
And keep my heart open.

Because of you,
I’m able to see the stars behind dark clouds.
Encouraging me that dreams could come true…
And just keep my faith in you!

Because of you,
I’m able to laugh behind pain.
Motivating me to be strong, go on…
And success would come along.

Because of you,
I’m able to trust behind betrayal.
Reminding me not to be afraid.
And to still believe…

Because of you,
I’m able to love behind hatred.
Telling me to do the right things.
And forget everything.

Finally I’m here living my life.
No more questions lingering in my mind…
Cause I have found the truth behind all the lies.
And I want to keep it ’til the end of my time…
