The Caged Butterfly…

Standard

I was once the queen of the sky
My crown would shine every time I flew up so high
I was once a free butterfly

butterflies

I was once part of the colourful gardens
I never imagined I could ever die
My bed was a rose and my perfume the nectar
My light was that ever shining star
I was once part of a magical universe
In its beauty I would immerse

red roses

Until one day, I got captured
My tiny heart got raptured
I was promised love
I was told I will fly freely like a dove
I was promised life
I was promised dreams

20130405-163333.jpg
Today I am a caged butterfly
Hopelessly trying to flap my wings again
Tears drop every morning as I know the roses are enjoying the dew of dawn
And I am dying with every drop as it evaporates the land

Yesterday I was a free butterfly
Flapping my wings like there was no tomorrow
Aching with today’s sorrow
Alas, the cage is becoming tighter as my days pass by
I can barely breath or sigh

butterflies

And I grow out of that promised love
That took my hope of life
Never tried to reconcile
Helplessly Watching me die

And I wonder, will tomorrow be the last day I bid farewell
Leaving me with only one desire
To forgive my sweet heart that failed me
As I die in peace and enjoy returning to that place I belong
So long, so long to you my caged butterfly.

remember my message

 

Shadows of Light

Standard

Light discerning upon us, like flames,
Sometimes it’s pretty, sometimes it’s an illusion and sometimes it burns,

shadows of light

Shadows of light

Troubled by the past, cheated by the present, abandoned by the truth,
A hint of time, a longing for joy, a fear of deceit, from a pattern of unfaithfulness that keeps disturbing my peace,
A bond that keeps unlocking itself, as I grow older,

Abandoned

Abandoned by the truth

A treasure that reveals an empty box every time I touch it,
I know, I am being tried, tested and controlled, as cliché as it may sound,
I am being tried and tested, yes, for my endurance, but I cannot be controlled, that, no,

endure the test of time

Endure the test of Time

A Gypsy like me lives with an untamed soul, that can and will survive it all,

Listen to the Music

Untamed Gypsy soul

So I shall dance with the shadow until the light will learn to embrace it, and, reveal…

Dance with the shadow

Dance with the shadow

The mix of mysterious emotions,
The present characters, no matter how close,
Who will remain those shadows in my life, until they learn to dance with the lights and reveal them passers by.

Fallen Leaves…Awakened Minds

Standard

Flashes of images stirring up my mind…of green leaves turning brown and yellow as they fall to the ground.

Hello there…

Aren’t you looking so grand today?

Majestic Grand Tree

Majestic Grand Tree

Hanging strong, up in your beautiful kingdom

Enjoying the scenery from up above

Whispering words of glory, as the wind blows its breeze through your alluring leaves

Spreading warmth and touching our skin with kisses that feel like velvet

Aren’t you looking so pretty and so satisfied?

You smile as you watch the passers by, the loved ones holding hands, the sad ones debating their lives

You empathize when you hear the voices in people’s minds, as they rush past you

Passers By

Passers By

Yet, you know this will come to an end and what you once enjoyed from up above, will become a past that you will reminisce

Fallen Leaves Awakened Minds

Fallen Leaves Awakened Minds

Hang on in there

Fallen Leaves Awakened Minds

Fallen Leaves Awakened Minds

For who you once were….You still are

You might have fallen today, you might be broken

Fallen Leaf Awakened Mind

Broken Leaf Awakened Mind

But your spirit lives on to tell the story of the many seasons to come

Each carrying different feelings, different experiences, different colors, different symbols

Fallen Leaves Awakened Minds

Fallen Leaves Awakened Minds

Fear not the seasons dear friend, for…

You live on….

My Gypsy Soul- Defined

This pretty much summarizes who I am and what I am searching for.

I am a traveler in space, searching for the truth, the truth about everything, in a world full of chaos and clutter.

A Look Over my Shoulder

A Look Over my Shoulder

Touched by beauty and by magic, I realize this painting of mine is not for sale.

As I look through my life, I realize I’m just a passer by and my search for the truth is leading me to different paths, some good and some not so good, and none have shown me the answer.

Where do I look, where do I search, who will I meet and who will I see, who will I trust and who will I love?

Can it be that my journey is coming to an end?

Life. I hate to break it to you, but it is not and it will not, for my Gypsy soul is eternal and I am a child of the universe.

Life. You tried to beat me many times, but I have grown strong, I have grown.

Destroy you tried, hate you sent, lies you made, but you have not designed me… for I am a Gypsy with a free soul..

My existence is an ever changing painting, so colorful, so beautiful, so alluring, you cannot destroy me or my story. Try you may.

Hear me out, for I will only say it once!

My will to live, to create, and to be free is stronger and more powerful than your will to destroy.

My life is a painting and it is not for sale.

I will look over my shoulder only to see a new canvas, everyday, colored with hope, love, good people, great mentors and happy souls.

What’s in a Word?

Standard
What’s in a Word?

Communication has always been an art form that fascinated me.

It takes great character, immense intelligence and talent to create a word in its true meaning. A “word” can tell you a lot about the speaker, his/her beliefs, ideologies and even personality. It is in the choice of words that people can distinguish themselves, they can inspire you, they can intrigue you, they can spellbound you or they can even disinterest you.

With words you can color, paint, narrate, make music, design and do much more. Words can be expressed in so many ways. Words are the most powerful gift we have been offered. Words can be spoken and unspoken, heard and unheard, they can be seen and they can be unseen. As soon as one hears, sees or even feels a word it triggers imagery in his/her mind and so it paints a picture of what the speaker is saying and if you are more of a spiritual person you can even go all the way to decode the intention of the speaker.

My story with words began as soon as I could start writing, and this is how it blossomed:

embrace your words

This year started with an unpleasant note, however, being the self driven person that I am, I decided to find a place to heal..I tried all sorts of techniques until I realized that I had an old WordPress account that needed some revamp. I look at my old account and add some passionate touches to make it more appealing, fortunately as time was my alibi, I felt a stronger desire to start writing again and it all began with the word…

I am a firm believer in energy and I do believe that words have an energy of their own so taking this belief as my starting point, I began writing and writing and writing, I couldn’t stop, I loved every bit of it, and didn’t want my thoughts to end and didn’t want my posts to finish. The best thing that happened to me this year so far, other than me passing my digital marketing postgraduate diploma assignment, is that my theory was proven to be correct, words are energy and what you write will echo in the universe and bring you the answers that your soul desires.

Today, I am happily surrounded by artists, poets, authors, writers, bloggers, designers, thought leaders, and many more charismatic and genuine minds, whose choice of words don’t cease to amaze and fascinate me; I cry with them, I laugh with them, I share their passions and their beliefs, I see beauty through their eyes, I travel the world with them, I learn about new cultures, I sail the oceans and the magical seas, I spread my wings and fly, I enjoy humanity with the words they so humbly share with me.

Now if you ask me what’s in a word? my answer will be: It is all that empowers my world.
