The Lingering

During the 19 years of my existence, I have slowly tried to compile what makes me, me. We have all been through a set of troubles that may differ from person to person but I believe we all experience similar outcomes. Ever work super duper hard trying to build yourself up and then have someone come by and knock your walls down? Yes, I believe … Continue reading The Lingering

A Faded Rose

You and I are rosebuds in full bloom. Our set of petals scream beauty, colour, and delight; the side of life that is empty of sorrow. Soft to the touch. Pleasing to the eye. Beneath the canvas of life lies the inevitable pricks of difficulty. Sharp enough to summon a drop of blood. Threatening to strike. Yet, What is a rose without its thorns? What … Continue reading A Faded Rose

Simple yet Complex

I wanted to make sense of my mind; unravel the layers of emotion, imagination, intelligence, and concept so that I may understand myself more clearly.

Ramadhan Diary ~ Day Five: Children

Loving one child is like loving an entire generation. —– As I sat beside a little girl’s bed, I looked around. Right there and then at the hospital, I realized how a mother worries, I realized how a child struggles, I realized how long an hour was, and I realized how truly grateful I should be for my body, mind, and heart. I also realized how significant … Continue reading Ramadhan Diary ~ Day Five: Children

For Even The Mighty Are Soft

For even the night is not complete darkness, Its vast canvas glows as tiny bright lights scatter the sky. For even the prickly thorns are not at all worthless, As they safeguard the exquisite art of a rose. For even a heavy rainfall leaves a sight, The stream of colours dance in arches above the earth. For even the mountains move when the ground shakes, … Continue reading For Even The Mighty Are Soft
