My Kind of Blues

Embed from Getty Images

I heard her play the saxophone

outside the jazz club

oblivious to her surroundings

she seemed focused only on her music

I felt captivated and enraptured by her blues.

I wondered what kind of life she lived

to play such music

that was soft and kind

yet penetrated my soul.




Convincing someone that your words holds value

such as trust, faith and love

is a mountain to climb in itself

especially if you lost their trust.

The only remedy it seems

is to start from the beginning

and build from there

and if you are lucky

you can eventually regain

their faith, trust and love.

It might not be like it was before

but hopefully a lesson can be learned

and that some wisdom was gained.


If you are lucky

to meet a friend who listens and understands ,

and who supports you wholeheartedly

with no hidden agendas

hold on to them and be grateful.


Some of the people who we come across in life

are lessons wrapped in a physical body

such as betrayal, anguish, temptation and misunderstanding

not to say all lessons are negative or positive

but it is life’s way of saying

‘Hey did you get my message ‘

and if you meet those kind of people

that make you smile, laugh, and have good vibes

appreciate them and let them know as well,

because genuine friendship isĀ  something really precious.
