History is full of contradictions and deceit
but by studying it we learn where we went wrong
but more importantly what we did right.
Part of being a human
is the rush of emotions that we experience everyday
from love, excitement and even embarrassment
The beauty is that we aren’t alone in this
and through history
we learn that we are more similar then we are different
I’m just tired of people in power
who see us as pawns
telling us who to love and who to hate.
The truth is
you can’t force someone to see things from your point of view
you can be the most smartest, kindest and considerate person
but people will only relate to you from their perspective,
and how they view themselves
whether that view is healthy or not.
we live and learn and we also grow.
Who we were yesterday
may not be the same person today
it’s all about changes
and hopefully one for the better.
May our dreams take flight
and soar above all our fears and doubts.
May we see in our lifetimes
some semblance of global harmony and love
a love so strong that it can’t be bought, sold or corrupted
the kind of love you cherish for your loved ones
but encompasses everyone.

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 is something really precious.
I hear her calling
but I keep on walking
I can’t look back even if I could
It pains me to hear her
but this is for the best of both of us
Since she was Yesterday
and I am Today
