Childhood Affects Adulthood

Parents mold their children just like a pan to a cake
How ever you're instructed gives your life it's shape
What you're taught as a child you will never forget
Morals and principles that others show you never fit
From your failures to your major accomplishments
Learning responsibility on a job to paying your rent
Clueless that your parents were preparing you for life
Now you thank them for teaching you what is right
Times that you felt that they were being hard on you
They we're preparing you to always know what to do
Good thing as parents they didn't slack on the job
Raising you to turn into the most laziest slob
The decisions you make reflects off your childhood...

"I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance

Never settle for the path of least resistance

Livin' might mean takin' chances, but they're worth takin'

Lovin' might be a mistake, but it's worth makin'

Don't let some Hellbent heart leave you bitter

When you come close to sellin' out, reconsider

Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance (Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance

I hope you dance (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder)
I hope you dance (Where those years have gone."

Artist: Lee Ann Womack
Song: I hope you dance

Lettrs:  To you!

Do you remember when you were playing to being a bird singing among the foliage? You never believed that it was only a game: truth?, from your voice flowed the most beautiful songs. You were unbearable: true! that's why you one day wanted to fly, to leave far.

You had the look full of dreams, feeding the pigeons in the Park, and you knew, from memory its imaginary names, by force of labelling, of being a wind, of being a seed, of being a light in I don't know which distant star.

You were., or you are (I don't know which would be of your life) more I always trusted that you still are, this young woman of the lost generation, a dream always going.  I don't know which to reme...

Who Am I?

1. What’s one thing that’s happened to you that has made you a stronger person?
A. Being a mother at the age of 17 and having all odds stacked against me and being confronted with survival. I didn’t have a driver’s license. My mother didn’t like my baby’s father so she kicked me out and I was homeless at 17 with a baby only months old and had no money or means to support myself nor did I have any family I could turn to for financial assistance or a place to stay. I fought hard to survive and had many life lessons served to me during that first couple of years and had many good people teach me a thing or two about life. These adversities made me the compassionate, empathetic humble...

       Joy,
       Sadness,
       Smiles,
       And tears
       All fill me
       As my fingers wander
       Touching the spines
       Of twenty-two
       Handwritten books
       Filled with
       More than
       Fifty-one years
       Of words,
       Thoughts,
       Memories,
       And life.         JD

Every day I used to seek friendship in lost souls ,
But soon I realised I have a better version than humans .
The one who is quiet,at times restless and makes me feel it's presence all that while.
From wagging her tail to wanting what all we eat.
They have a different world than ours, they feel and hear things which we are unaware about.
Apart from so many differences we have one thing in common love , affection for each other.
And growing fondness each passing hour .
From being scared of dogs to loving them, I found a true companion !

Have you ever been in love?

This question has been the center of so many conversations in my life. A question that makes me go back to being a teenager.
A girl that doesn't know what love means besides sharing her lunch at school or waiting for each other after class or even going into detention because that certain person would be there aswell.

That question always reminds me of the late night wishes of "what if" and the prepared conversations played over and over in my head. Falling in love has so many expectations these days but back then it was all so simple.

We called it love when someone would tell you to get home safe. We called it love when you saved the last slice for the other...

To whom it may concern,

It's almost 1 am, and I cannot rest.

I mean, to be honest, I haven't been sleeping well and it's called for some late nights. But I have work in four hours and I'm facing another long shift, so I've been tossing and turning, trying to find the right angle to fall asleep in. So far no good.

An alert pops up on my phone for a group you introduced me to over a year ago. Of course, your name is in the header. I wonder if I should leave this group, too, to spare us both the pain.

Ironic how I wish to talk to you but try to avoid your mention at every given chance. I know, I'm a hypocrite.

Congratulations, by the way.

My chest siezed and I felt like I was dying. It's b...

How normal is to miss that person?
How often could you erase the memories and mesmerise at a glance ?
How a look of that person could change the world upside down ?
How could that promise  hold you back and not them ?
How easily could they smile and not look at you ?
How often do you think of them knowingly they don’t?
How precisely could you even care when they hurt you ?
How you still wander for their touch ,  for their smile and their love ?
How you still remember the last kiss of them ?
How you still keep a hope ?
How they said you to move on ,
How they  think is easy to move on ?
How you think would you be able to ?

I don’t have tomorrow
I have now— this moment with me
So I’m going to live it
And love madly
For who knows
When it’s my time

Inaudible whispers of solitude
I retire myself to
Enlightens me to the secrets
Of life I have lived and forgotten
It reminds me of the bygones
I have dreaded to visit
Why can’t chapters I have closed
Stay closed,
why unsettle the dust of time?
Do not touch the graves
For those lying in deep slumber
Has melancholic music of pain
Instead of heart
Do not let yourself die
With the hands of dead.
My thoughts, the words I construe them with
Are embalmed with the despair of the lost moments
And the memories that could be.

Remembering things
From before
You,
Is trying to forget
How I felt
With you.

Some stains,
My mother told me,
Are permanent.

SKYLARK CHALLENGE 153
- Calamity, Slay, Outrageous, Forgive
--------------------------------------
"COME BACK TO ME"

Being of light-
a decade into my past-
climb a tree with me,
please.
Hey you...
smallish drama played out
in my rearview mirror,
rise with me to the lonesome howls
of wolves both young and old
trapped inside this same growing forest.
Hey you.... ageing forest
come back to me.
Me,
an unlovable book worm,
a steam engine on a box seeking outrageous truths,
a pine cone collector...
Come back child of nine,
born here and now;
mischievous firefly,
let's slay our demons together.
Come back to me
from inside the painting
I painted on the sky,
I thought you would fade in time.
Slow...

Howling voices echoed through the canyons
a lonesome evening song
reverberating off the ancient stone
in a painted history along the mesa

I lived a hundred lifetimes
riding the wild breath of the desert highway
winding along the dwindling river bed
discovering all those darkened places
obscured in the gathering storms

The stars danced and fell in waves
glittering into the ebony expanse
while we watched and wished
and reminisced
remembering the eons long past
dreaming of millennia to come

All way long
I carry the tired body
And a bitter soul
Dizzy eyes shut my vision
Voices amplified inside me
They were of memories
From worst to best
Reels of them swirled around me
Time wasn't racing
The soul was just gazing
Every piece of realistic drama
My Mind was healing
With Rollercoaster of feelings
Vibrant emotions spread like oceans
Once again I travelled back
Again & again I was watching myself... Every shade of mine
In an unknown universe of memories...
Memories fueled me
A slow smile lit my face
And I begin the journey
This time  with the passionate body
And a spiritual soul

Wading
Washed
Crust
Tideline

A Walk along the Shore

The granules remind me of the easiness I carried, and the waves remind me of my little fury and rage I holded all the time. Little things that matter more are seldom realized at the end if a day. The tidelines remembering me every now and then phase does change and bud a new hope Evey time. How I used to spent hours and hours just wading along the shores, reminiscing every moment of past. And how I used to let the waves wash every dirt of mine. Selfish I was, wasn't I? I used even the water to wash away my sins and started finding hopes even in the tides flowing. How the crest and tough of these waves depicte...
