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.

 

Changes

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.

As humans

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.

Wishes

 

 

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.

 

My Kind of Blues

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

 

Wisdom

 

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.

Appreciation

 

Somethings in life are meant to be shared with everyone

such as joy, friendship,love and dreams

however life is fickle at times

and along the way

there is hate, anger, pride, envy

and  this is shared with everyone

even ourselves

the thing is

that as humans we embody all these emotions

and often we prioritize one over the other

and rightfully so

because the sensation of joy is greater

then the agony of pain

but I realized that understanding the source of my pain

gave me clarity and compassion

and a better recognition of the upswing and downswing of life.

Honest and hilarious

oblivious yet aware

a bundle of joy,

and a testament of love.

Always living in the moment,

and seeing things for what they are.

A patient and kind teacher.

My sincere regards to man’s best friend.
