The Soul

The soul of man is immortal
Few are aware of this
The body is a mode of transportation
Only a handful know this.

Man seeks immortality
But they already are
The soul never dies
But stays alive into the next life

The body does not matter
What goes on with the soul is important
To keep it pure and safe
We only can meditate and pray

Souls must stay with us
Never to be sold for wealth or fame
Secure it for the afterlife
For souls are immortals

The Cave

The Cave is a part of human life where we find ourselves sometimes when we want to be alone. Described as a hollow place of seclusion where a person can hide from others for shelter and protection; a cave is often non-physical but psychologically created.

The cave is a special place to think and be alone by shutting everyone else out. It serves as a comfort zone for many when life seems too difficult to bear. Each one of us has a cave where we run to when in need of space; it helps us breathe, think and meditate to find solutions to challenges.

Some people never come out of their caves, especially when they feel all hope is lost; they remain there and find comfort there; thereby detaching themselves from the world. A cave must serve as a temporary abode for reflection, never a lifetime home.

Fathers Day

"I want to congratulate all the men out there who are working diligently to be good fathers whether they are stepfathers, or biological fathers or just spiritual fathers." 
                                                                                           T. D. Jakes

"When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry." 
                                                                                                William Shakespeare

"I am not ashamed to say that no man I ever met was my father's equal, and I never loved any other man as much."
                                                                                            Hedy Lamarr

"A good father believes that he does wisely to encourage enterprise, productive skill, prudent self-denial, and judicious expenditure on the part of his son."
                                                                                      William Graham Sumner

"My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me."
                                                                                                                  Jim Valvano

Mothers are Teachers

The first Teacher
Anyone can have
Is a mother

The first lessons taught
By everyone
Is by a mother

The first words learnt
By everyone
Is from a mother

The first love felt
By all living beings
Is from a mother

The first classroom is the home
Where life lessons are taught
Is promoted by a mother

The first rebuke of correction
To put a person in check
Is by a mother

Refugees are human beings
They are desperate for survival
They are forced to leave home
For a life you and I dream of.

Refugees are made like us
Their situation is complex
They need help and love
They deserve respect and kindness.

Refugees are brave people
They risk their lives to survive
They struggle with family and friends
Till they find a place to call home.

Refugees are among us
They need embrace and help
Anyone could be a refugee any day
Treat them as you would have them treat you.

Celebrity Setups

The theme is Fame
Made to deceive Fans
But it's all about Money
Never about Dignity

A scene is set up
For everyone to believe
A plot is made
And the prey is identified

We never realize
Until our money pays their bills
And we have been fooled
By celebrity setups

We stare and glare
At wealth and fame
Wishing to be them
Unknowningly we made them

Real Realtionships

They come with real people
Real situations, real circumstances
Faced with love and hate
Endures joys and sadness
Overcomes fears and challenges
Sustains jealousy and heartbreaks
That is what makes them real

They avoid the public
Who has a thousand tongues to judge
What happens between them
Stays between them
Because they are real people
With real problems
Who overcome them in real ways.

No one deserves to be alone.
The reason all things come in twos.
A person needs to talk
To be listened to, a companion is needed

Everyone needs an opinion of another
No one knows it all
Loneliness does not fit in
Where communication exists

To walk alone
Differs from talking alone
To think alone
Varies from feeling alone

All living things
Have companions
Never isolated
To avoid loneliness.

A mental state
Where no one understands
Where life turns grey
And all colors fade
And grey becomes black
Until there is total darkness

A burden to bear
When no one can see
The weight so large
And the mind so dead
But an empty soul
Vanishing away

Does anyone notice?
How depressed a neighbor is
Or we hide our noses indoors
And avoid to relate
Until the trigger wakes us at night
To the loss of a depressed one

What would it cost you?
To ask 'Are you alright?'
And lend a listening ear
A sigh or a nod
Can save a life
And cure a depressed soul.

True Friendship

When you laugh
I laugh
When you are happy 
I am happy

Your smile 
Lights up my day
Your frown 
Depresses me

I bleed 
When you are in pain
I weep 
When you face shame

Like a brother
From another mother
True friendship
Lasts forever.

Women who raise children
Are mothers
Women who birth children
Women who never gave birth
All raise children
With love and care
Discipline and nurture
Is a mother

Women who feel another's pain
Are mothers
Women who have sleepless nights
Women who get ill with their children
All for the love
With compassion and devotion
A job unpaid for
And always on duty

Women who are selfless
Are mothers
Women who are responsible
Women who are role models
All living one life
With understanding and sacrifice
Generously living as a watchman
Happy Mothers Day!!!

Owing No One

It is your life
There are things in life
Which you owe no one
An explanation

What you eat
As long as you are healthy
It's no ones concern
It's your life

Where you live
As long as you can afford the rent
And you live peacefully
It's your business alone

What you wear
As long as it it modest and clean
And you inspire others
It's solely your concern.

Your plans for your future
As long as they are positive
Not hurting others but lifting you up
It's your life.

Determine to Succeed

Your success
My success 
Is not determined by anyone
It is all in our hands

Whatever we work at
No matter how long it takes
Always results in success
It is only a matter of time

Those who find excuses
Only seek escape routes
And success is always far
From those who don't persevere.

Welcome to May!!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the month of May!

Don't Give Up

Don't Give Up
You're Closer than you think

Don't Give Up
The beginning is always the hardest

Don't Give Up
Just because things are hard

Don't Give Up
Keep going

Don't Give Up
Focus on the reason to continue

Don't Give Up
Great things take Time

Don't Give Up
One day you'll look back and be glad you didn't

Don't Give Up
Just because of what people said. 
Use that as a motivation to push harder

Don't Give Up
God will give you the strength to hold on

No matter who gives up on you,
Don't give up on yourself.

compiled from different sources to encourage everyone

Down to Earth

It begins when a man thinks
He is not better than others
He sees people as gods
And himself a servant

Highly placed he is
Does not matter
For he knows
He must stay humble

People ask him why
He says we all live once
To do unto others
As you would have them do to you

Little Things Add Up

Wealth is not built in a day
It takes little things
Intense work
Maximum focus
Determination to succeed
Continuity and progress
For little things to add up

Fitting In

How do I fit in?
When I have no idea
I try to be myself
It does not work
Try to be someone else
It attracts a bit

How different am I?
My color is different
My language differs
My belief is unique
I struggle so hard
Yet cannot fit in

How do they see me?
If they do see me
I appear invisible to them
I am not one of them
I am different
I may never fit in

That Last Moment

That last moment
When all hope is lost
Years and years of searching
Waiting humbly for a miracle
When your last breath is all left

Suddenly it comes
Alas it happens
It does not seem right
But it really is
But too astonished to rejoice

It has happened
It is all over
But doubts loom in
You have no choice
But to accept the last moment's hope

Family is a group
Family are friends
Family is a pillar
Family are foes

They are there to share
They are there to care
They make us feel safe
They punish us with discipline

Family is everything
Family believes in us
Family keeps our dark secrets
Family pushes us to success

Why does it have to be like this?
To struggle for everything
Why does life have to be so complex?
Man made it this way
No easy way out there
We all struggle to survive
We keep our heads above
To help us from sinking
O help us God

The feeling that keeps coming back no matter how much you try. There surrounds a person people who need, people who want, people who want to collect because of a need, a want, a lack, a hole they are so desperate to fill and you feel loved.

When the time comes for you to feel loved and none of these people show you any, it is clear you are unloved. Compromises are not made to make you happy, to feel respected and to feel belonged, then you are certainly unloved.

Truth is, no one can love you like yourself. It is always better to shun all the selfish feelings that others have towards you and embrace yourself. No one deserves to be unloved...

I know it's Love

What else could it be? When he looks at her in a way so different from others, It has to be love.
 But how would you know unless you are told? It's the way he expresses it and the way she responds. For many years, they have been good to each other; caring and sharing. Forgiving and respecting each other. What more would you call it?
They share the same things in life. They build and raise each other up. People have learnt about love from them by merely staring, not knowing them in person. And when they are angry with each other, they do yell and fight like other humans, but after a while, they make-up and forget each other's wrong.
I know it's Love; it is the feeling which radiates around them. It is like a halo which moves with them constantly. You would know if you saw it too or ever felt love before. They share it daily when they walk around and people stare. They are used to the stares, it's been there for years. They do not mind anyone but keep their feelings for each other strong.

Welcome to February!!!

The month of love is here, There will be love poems and articles this month, Feel free to send them to your  loved ones and share the love around,,,

The feeling of free
The science of knowing
The immorality of dependence
Goes a greater height
For all persons to be free
As life and air is
So is independence vital

Efforts do not get us far
Looking around us
Makes us feel blessed
We do stand out
But feel there's more
There's always more
For those who are unique
But only being content
Opens doors of upliftment
Where we can climb
And make positive impact
To the great big world
For contentment makes all better

Life is mysterious itself
We can only count ourselves lucky
When surviving ghastly events
The unseen exists
Believe it or not

We know it's there
We try to wade it off
We feel the presence
Both good and evil
Believe it or not

I wouldn't know
Unless I felt it
And I feel it and so do you
These unseen forces exist
Believe it or not

If only we could see
What happens around us
But they remain unseen
Like the invisible
Believe it or not

The sense of touch remains the greatest
Though blind we are
To the unseen
The sense of touch sees them
Believe it or not

It lies with adults
Ways we were raised
Affects ways we raise ours

Children follow steps
That lead to success or doom
Signs from childhood show them

Responsibilities are for adults
Never for children
They must never have their way

Little individuals they are
They try to control us
But we must turn tables

Children think they know
Parents know better
Mutual understanding must exist

How we raise
Is how they will raise
And continues for that generation

Upbringing matters
To both parents and children
To save the future generation

Imaginations fill our mind
They control the brain
Making the impossible seem
Quite real to the mind

Imagination drives progress
They make believe the unbelievable
Creating a dream world
Where we have powers over all

It pays to Believe

As dark as life is
So are our struggles
We aim to survive
Swimming through the waves of distress
But without hope
Or one as tiny as a grain of sand
We know we can survive
We know we will survive
But when is the question
All struggles last a while
Then we overcome
To face another someday
And we do overcome them all
Since we always believe

Life takes Time

Life takes Time
Moving as it pleases
Never in a rush
No matter how we hurry
Life will always move
At its own pace
All we can do is relax

Directions of Life

When life tries you
You try life
When you fall in life
You pick yourself up
When there seems too many ways
Begin with one
When one way fails
Move on to the next

Man never knows
What direction life takes him
Unless he tries
He never learns
Never be scared of risks
Life comes with risks
Life has so many
Directions to success
You only need to begin with one
