Who will you be?

Who will you be?

….

Amidst the checkered landscape of life,

The raining heavens and the cloudy moods.

A cold steel pyramid of success,

A towering symbol of love and romance,

Standing proud and tall,

A lighthouse for miles,

A beacon for all and sundry to look up to.

The humble human shield,

With room for only one or two.

When the world turns upside down,

A red ark turned inside out,

Remaining open and exposed,

Wearing an outward garb,

In colors of the human heart.

Feeling, filling to the brim.

Who will you be?

A KNOCKOUT  ESCAPE

When life takes you by rude surprise

Despite all safety checks

Shocked and numbed

Paranoid with fear

When you can’t understand what’s going on

When you’ve been pushed and pulled from all sides

When all your plans come to a screeching stop

When every door to escape is locked

None seem to open

When the water’s gone way above your head

That sinking feeling

When you’re drowning in the deep

And all out of breath

When all your strength’s long spent

When you’ve given every ounce of fight

And you still find yourself stuck

In a serious jam

Holding on for dear life

No one can hear your screams

The end seems near

Still

I will not go quietly into the night

I will find a way out

I will keep pulling at the chains to set myself free

Even amid crashing worlds

Running out of time

I will die trying!

If need be!

If need be…

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

A Royal Companion

Who sniffs out the good from the bad

Licks, licks and licks…always likes the taste of you

Never gets enough of touch touch

His flippity floppy ears

Always listen for His master’s voice

His adorable ways

Force you to make coochie-coo kissy faces

He brings out the child in everyone

And forces a smile to break out on the most sullen face

Always his family ‘s lucky mascot and cheerleader

 

Indeed

None can show you love, loyalty, kindness and friendship

Like a dog

No matter if he/she be black, brown, grey or white

 

A pat on the back, a good belly rub& some good food

And

He paws his way into your heart forever

.

.

“The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.”

Ray of sunshine

Sleepless nights and noisy days

Who but you?

Can bring a smile to my face on the cloudiest day

Enliven my tired gaze

Soften life’s rough edges

Warm the heart hardened  by the cold ways of the world

Amongst the black, white and greys

You’re my ray of sunshine

Your hand in mine

My hand in thine

And

Knowing no matter what

I’m not alone

That’s enough

.

.

.

“I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day
When it’s cold outside I’ve got the month of May
Well I guess you’d say
What can make me feel this way?…”

A Safe Haven

 

In the shadows

Furrowed forehead

When there’s nothing more left to do

When everything’s uncertain

None  can see into the future

There’s no evading the truth

Feeling the midnight blues

Longing for someplace safe

A shelter in the storm

My head bows in surrender

And  I enter His embrace

He holds me closer and tighter

Who knew?!

My safe haven was so close by

Closer than even hands and feet

.

.

.

“…Suddenly I turned around and she was standin’ there
With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair
She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns
Come in, she said
I’ll give ya shelter from the storm…”

-Bob Dylan

FREEZE THE FRAME

The brown earth

Sprouts a riot of color

Did you smell the roses?

It’s time

Freeze the frame

Don’t look away

Let life surprise you

There’s magic in every moment

In every corner

Let’s bring back

The sparkle in your eye

The dimpled smile on your face

‘Coz

It’s not over

Til it’s over

So

Uncork the tension

Let the bubbly of your soul floweth over

.

.

.

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

-Roald Dahl

The Best Minute

At the end of the day

Sitting comfy on the couch

In our pajamas

Sipping the last drops of wine

As darkness descends

You close your book

And look up at me

Flashing that million-dollar smile

Which crinkles up your entire face

Leaning in towards you

Placing my hands on your neck

Our eyes shut as we kiss

Closing to bring us even closer

 

Ah…

Come to think of it

Don’t need much to be happy

I live for moments like this

.

.

.

“Live each present moment completely and the future will take care of itself. Fully enjoy the wonder and beauty of each instant.”

To Happy Endings

Waiting with bated breath

And

Its bad news

Dejected and rejected

Tearing eyes and sniffling sobs

What do you do?

When things go wrong

From bad to worse

When you’ve done your best

And it’s not enough

Remember

Dear one

It’s not the end of the world

If you can believe in fairytales

You know there are always obstacles to overcome

Terrible trials come to only the most worthy ones

So

Learn to smile through the tears

Even in the storm

Shut the noise out

Keep calm

I’ve got your back

No matter the damage

No matter how much things fall apart

Believe and

The universe will reveal its magic

And put things back together

Now go forth

Get your happy ending

Don’t you dare give up

.

.

“Unknown I will walk by your side and guard you with invisible arms.”

Welcome to the Fight Club

Dear Danger,

 

From birth to death

It’s a knock out fight

Brace yourself

‘Coz I’m not backing out

Can’t ya see the steely resolve in my eyes?

Armed with grit and determination

I’m up for every challenge

When push comes to shove

I’m gonna give it all I’ve got

Get ready to break a sweat

Get ready to get out of breath

If you hit hard

I’ll hit harder

If you hit fast

I’ll hit faster

‘Coz

I beg you remember that

‘We are two lions littered in one day,

And I the elder and more terrible’.

 

– Signed by the Spiritual Gangsta

KEEP ON!

Dim and gloomy

Deep in the dungeon

They sit

Dishshevelled looks

Deepening frown lines

Startled and alarmed

At the turn of the tide

Worries mock their senses

Where is the escape?

Will anything be enough?

The weight of mounting expectations

“We ain’t no miracle workers!”

Dear ones,

I hate to burst your bubble

But you’re fighting a war

No less

There’s no time to waste

Keep on!

Keep on!

No one’s seen the future

Keep on

Marching towards the light

Take heart!

A different world awaits

.
