To wake up each day with a different meaning.
Yesterday, not the same as today and vice-versa.
A second chance to last day's mistakes.
How can one deny the favours that life has to offer?
The blissfulness of curiousity, fear and excitement.
Life enticing one to step into the unknown?
Well then life must be beautiful.
The sun’s golden light mirrors your beauty,
concealed inside, is a curious soul waiting to be freed.
You can imagine why i don’t want summer to end,because that’s when you come out to the light andshow your true colors,unbothered by the judging world.
Part of me knows that this love will soon come to an end.
Part of me knows, we are living and loving on borrowed time,so, let’s make the most of what we have now,living in the moment.
Meeting you was probably the happiest day of my life and thebeginning of Autumn, will probably be the saddest.
I remember my lips being introduced to yours and our handssharing a moment of their own.Strangers in Spring and lovers in Summer,how poetic.
Just thinking of you makes me want to write a poem andi think it goes like this, “…Roses are red, violets are blue,one wish i have is to share every moment with you…”(chuckles) I know it’s a bit cheesy, but this is who i am,you love it and I know it’s true.
I wish summer was all year long so we could love each other non-stop, probably if wishes were horses,but every sunset that comes,a part of me sets with it, knowing, Autumn is but an inevitable destiny.
I have everything and nothing.
A facade of a good life, but
full of murky shadows waiting to
pounce on every single chance i have
But is it true happiness?
is it a social dilemna?
or its simply loneliness in disguise?
A wild thought begetts doubt and
doubt begetts ingratitude, thus,
a lone-wolf is born.
I still feel whole and empty,
full of life and yet without meaning.
Neither a glass half full nor half empty,
rather without water,
But still makes a beautiful sound
when one sticks and slides.
So maybe there is hope after all,
but the greyness still resides inside me.
Optimism is overrated some would say, but to grasp on the idea of ‘The glass half full…’ideology is actually a great way to overcome obstacles in one’s life.
Let’s take for example, a person who just lost a job. Instead of that person to moarn over the loss of his/her job, he/she has a mind full of gratitude for the lessons learnt from the past job and has hope, that all the lessons learnt would be of great use in finding the next job, be it sooner or later. That hope gives birth to optimism, an imaginary land, where the grass is always greener on the other side.
To convince an optimist otherwise, rather seems nearly impossible for their way of thinking is totally different
from realists and/or pessimists, however, they are fully aware that not all is roses and gold in life. They choose to approach life, in hopes that nothing is permanent in life, be it good or bad, and that after a storm comes calm.
Let’s take another example, which is slightly similar to the first mentioned above. Say, a person has been living in debt,
he or she has been in and out jobs and has been suffering from rejection after rejection from different companies, maybe family
and other relations too. Seems too much? well, believe it or not, many out there go through something very similar quite often, thus the reason for choosing this example. Now, let’s get back to the example. Inside an optimist’s mind, light is always perceived at the end of the tunnel, amidst the crisis.
You always hear them saying something along the lines such as “I know someday, things will get better” or “Tomorrow is another day”, which seems a bit too hopeful considering the amount of difficulty and pain they would be experiencing, however, that’s how an optimist gets his/her strength despite the difficulty.
An optimist is always up for the challenge and is always eager to try different approaches in life as long as it gets them to where they want to be. In other words, they simply refuse to give up nomatter how the challenge may seem to be. Their eyes shimmer with hope, with endurance and at times they may go over the top and try to spread optimism to the rest of the world. One can try to imagine how beautiful their hearts are, but their way of thinking, their minds are way too powerful to be overshadowed by ‘What ifs’, rather with ‘One day i will…’ kind of thoughts.
Some would say that optimism is just an easy way to hide from the harshness of reality and that realists would accept whatever life brings to the table, but an optimist however, would do the same with the hope of things getting better sooner or later. For one to have the ability to think this way, it would help that person greatly with a reduced risk of heart problems because of stress and also less overthinking.
“Live life to the fullest, one day at a time”, is an optimist’s motto, which sounds cool by the way and also a mantra which has helped a lot of people to live their lives with great contentment and gratitude.
“Optimism – the doctrine or belief that everything is beautiful, including what is ugly.”
– Ambrose Pierce
Hearing her speak,
your heart melts.
The sound of her voice is like a sweet serenade
and the feel of her touch is like two heartbeats in sync,
When love is in the equation,
then you would understand.
Her gaze, her scent, her laugh
and her spark it’s just magical.
What more could you ask for?
Watching the sunset with her as the day unfolds.
Watching as the time of tomorrow is being written
in black and white,
I could wish for nothing more.
I want her today and tomorrow and the next.
Watching the day end with zest,
an unknown feeling just because i have her
by my side.
Reminiscing the days we were One and still is,
the days you so full of light, of love, of beauty,
just can’t get enough of you.

The sweet taste of love,
the doves are my witness.
Warm and gentle your arms around me,
Am i the luckiest guy in the world,
i am overwhelmed by your kindess.
You and me in the never ending moment
an undying commitment.
We are two souls lost in each other’s eyes,
and i don’t think i will ever be ready to find
lovestruck by your cuteness
Tidal waves gushed away my broken dreams
and new thoughts began cooking inside my mind.
A step forward and 2 steps back,
thats how i thought life is.
A new perspective of a better tomorrow,
am i too broken to dream?
“Keep moving!”, a faded voice
inside my mind kept pushing and pushing,
towards the light at the end of the tunnel.
Havent i pushed enough?
havent i put my all?
Havent i exhausted my wishes,
“Keep moving!”it uttered again,
and once more.
Now, two steps forward and a step back,
a new perspective of a rainbow after a storm.
But isn’t if i am at the far bottom i have every
reason to get up, to keep Moving?
Dust on my shoes, a long journey ahead
and as birds sing along the road,
and the trees providing shelter and rest when
thoughts of returning start to creep in,
that voice again utters,”Keep moving”.
I guess its not over yet for me
Your eyes shine on every full moon
Even in the coldest nights, your smile brings warmth.
Your laugh puts my mind at ease.
The moonlight spreads through the horizon,
and your beauty captures every essence of it.
Your wildest self comes out every night to play,
i can’t get enough of it.
You are as gorgeous as a carnation,
but with a heart full of fire…
never in a million years
had i thought that my arms would be around your waist
and your head on my chest, you hearing my heart-beat and I,
feeling your warmth and each second turning into past…
