notes to my future self (10)


1. we cannot all be strong.
by remaining weak,
some await the strong
to prove their
strength
and that is brave enough
2. lose yourself to some moments.
there are the places your mind would dwell
when you withdraw into your shell
3. try to remember to smile
when in tears:
it's ridiculous so maybe
that'd ease the pain.
4. never for once lose
faith in God and yourself.
if you forget,
look back the bumpy road
you're now ahead of.
5.  when you get into the
"i hate my life" zone
call a friend,
have a nice conversation;
a laugh or two maybe.
6. never be ashamed of the things
that make you cry.
frailty is strength.
tears are it's sword
and your pen,the soldier.
7. bounce a ball once in a while,
life is like gravity.
it pulls you down but
you have the choice to be static or bounce.
philosophy 101.
8. never abandon your belief and values
even if you're the last person on earth with them
be true to your values,
the pricelessness of them
would create a new nation
through you.
9.  love, but never lose yourself.
in loving be wise,
do not forget who you are.
that, is loving sincerely,
presenting yourself
as you are
not the image you think your partner needs.
10. smile more often.
it is like the key to opening
so many unlocked doors.
it's hard iknow.
think of chocolates,
that'd do the trick.

When my answers come

Life was designed to last once for every individual and as much as that sucks, it is true. We roam through life trying to figure out the true essence of existence and while that urge might be higher in some, it is lower for others. 
I mean, who cares about all of the serious stuff in life right? Roll up some weed, light it, smoke up some dose of daily conviction. Look forward to a what could be a better alternative for essence.
Truth be told, every single one of us humans on the surface of Earth, have that moment. A time when probably in a car driving to work, amid the endless news on the radio, it hits you- the realization of something beyond every individual you pass by on the streets, every nod you get in response to your greeting, every shade of pupils you've stared into.

And yeah, while some might boldly step out and share in an engaging tone, how, they realized, once, years back, the X, Y, Z, that led to making a significant decision in their lives, I sit there and wonder. I wo…

SEVEN MINUTES IN HEAVEN

seven minutes in heaven;
seven minutes counting
heart beats by the second.
six minutes in heaven;
all the while tapping feet
on shaky wooden floorboards
in nervous delight.

five minutes in heaven;
five minutes counting
down to reality:
a beastly, slimy one.
four minutes in heaven;
wondering if by chance
or luck or grace,
a glimpse of an angel
 would suffice.

three minutes in heaven,
and lo a ladybird atop
your nose tickles,
dances, wiggles, jiggles,
then away,  flies.
two minutes in heaven,
two minutes or the next,
daydreams finally might come
to be:
visions of sunny skies,
silly side aching laughs_
chocolatey gums,
all on display
for my ever aching eyes.

a minute left in heaven
the last, the longest,
the shortest it seems,
the last before you wake
and stare at
the computer screen
in a crowded
noisy bureau,
someplace.

you sigh.
"of course it was unreal."
