Rain

I listen to the pattering of the rain
As it drop drops on my window pane
It reminds me of the hearts that have fallen
into nothingness
Those whose names have been called in
out of sadness
I wonder if anyone else can hear
If anyone else can see
Or is it just me
That has the propensity
To listen to the fallen hearts
As they fall in silence
Who feels relieved when the rain stops
But the last drop
Means that heart is already gone
Pitter patter rain
Drop drop on my window pane

Life Is Unfair. Who Told You It Was?

This is going to be super short, I am currently attempting to study for what is set to be an extremely difficult and long exam -_-

Today I had a very vivid reminder of how unfair life is. A friend of mine has gone to heaven and he doesn’t deserve to have left us the way he did, but he did. He is gone and there isn’t a thing we can do about it. It’s surreal, gut wrenching, painful but it is reality.
So many times we expect life to deal us a fair set of cards to play with and then get upset when it doesn’t. The moment we were conceived till now, life hasn’t been fair and I don’t believe it has any intentions of changing it’s ways. Things happen and sometimes, it won’t happen the way we expect it to but life goes on. Don’t be discouraged by what you see going on around you, just have a hope and keep your head up. Do not expect life to treat you nicely, and if it is doing that right now, then count your blessings and mark them well because anything can happen within a moment’s notice.

When things are looking down, just look up and smile….even if tears are running down your face. If you feel as though you have been misused and abused, don’t get revenge….look up and smile even if it is unbearable.
Truth is, ‘fairness’ was constructed by us humans and is just as flawed as everything else we make, not everything is going to balance out as fair.

That’s just that.
Bless up my lovies. Much peace and safety to you all.

Smile Like That

Usually, I carry a smile with me everywhere I go. No, I’m not always happy though and neither am I an optimist or anything like that but the thing is, I just understand that smiles help. They help you and they help others. This evening I sat alone in drinking a french vanilla ice in a fast food outlet called Marios. I sat there, minding my own business, I was waiting on someone so I was looking outside and a man who seemed to be a guard off duty in the restaurant was passing by and we made eye contact. So I did what I usually do, smile and greet the person with a good night or good (insert time of day here), it was evening but yes, I said good night because….well…where I live it’s night once it’s dark. :) So I pleasantly responded and proceeded to ask my why I was sitting by myself drinking all the drink on my own. After I responded to him though he told me that he was in urgent need of a call and asked if I could spare him one and so I did. It was my pleasure to help him out because it seemed as though he really was in a predicament from what he desribed to me.

Anyways, no need to get into the entire story but he made his calls and he parted ways. A smile makes you approachable, it brightens up your day and the day of the others that are around you, it kills the people that don’t like you. If I had not smiled with the man and said good night, he would have probably been going home a bit stressed and why should he have to? Now, it may not be important for you to smile at people and help keep but the essence of what I want to say is that a smile can ease you and it can be the start of something that can bring you joy. Smiles are harmless, so genuinely wear one.

:) Good night. (Yes it’s night now, 10:46 pm)

Pretty Hurts?

A friend of mine recently was listening to Beyonce’s song ‘Pretty hurts’ and I found the truth in the song very interesting. The video itself showed a different perspective to the process of prettiness which is what I call it….the things that girls have to go through in order to be acceptable to society. I wondered….what would it take for there to be a complete reprogramming of the human mind where appearance is concerned. What would it take for people to see everyone as beautiful and not try to fit everybody into a mold? What would happen to the ‘pretty’ people with the perfectly shaped bodies if what they looked like didn’t matter anymore? I found all of this very hard to envision….and that in itself was scary to me. We have been so brainwashed that we cannot imagine what the world would be like without it having everything categorized for us. What if really and truly, everyone was seen as equal.

Call me what you may but I am one of those that believe that EVERYONE is beautiful, we are born that way….no questions asked, no additives, no subtractions. I understand though that not everyone in the world has come to such a class of understanding and so I excuse them. Being pretty only hurts when you are trying to shrink or stretch yourself into something you are not. Being pretty only hurts when ‘pretty’ is not you. Here is how I think one can become ‘pretty’ without being hurt:

  • Stand up for what you believe in and be proud of who you are. Your confidence shows….matter of fact, your confidence glows.
  • Love the people around you, good or bad. It brings your soul a peace that makes you radiant.
  • Accept you as you are first before you add or take away anything. Don’t wear make up because you need it, wear it because you make make up look good, you wear it well, it looks good on you. Don’t wear shorter or tighter clothes to get his attention, you are well capable of getting his attention properly clad in a sheet. Be yourself.

I can’t imagine the radiant smiles that would fill the world if everyone was just to be comfortable in their own skins. You are already beautiful, it’s your default. If anyone dare tell you differently, smile and sweetly tell them to get a life :D I remember that being my dad’s advice to me when I was much younger and battling with these same insecurities and well, if you wish you could ring your neck a little and snap your fingers at them. (Joking!)

Blessings people. :* Love yall

That’s all She says for the night
