No. 523

The pitter, patter of cherished feet,
angels returned before their time,
shadows that no longer cast a light,
buried deep,
beneath the feet,
of loved ones left behind.

Worshippers sat amongst worshipped lovers,
each hymn and verse,
an eternal struggle,
nothing good is allowed to last forever,
it withers like a rose unearthed.

No. 522

I am not going to justify myself to a world that only sees me when it decides I`m worthy and no longer invisible.
I don’t need to be ‘seen’, my life so far has been a tremendous achievement, my only regrets are that it took me far too long to realise that museums and galleries aren’t the only places where art lives
– it lives in me too,
I am art.
I know I may not appeal to everyone; however, I have learnt, that the only person I need to please is me.
The world is full of critics and I will always be my worst critic and often judge myself harshly, but I know me best, I know the struggle I’ve been through. What I won’t accept are strangers with opinions based on the cover a...

I do not need
a reason
to love you less,
I already have
a lifetime
of reasons
to love you more.

No. 520
You always have the ability
to open old wounds,
even when we don’t speak.
We remain tangled;
my heart is drawn to you
for reasons that escape me
and yet I cannot escape you,
I will never be free
– my broken pieces are being held together
by the constant pull of your invisible thread.

When it comes to my heart,
you will never understand me,
if you cannot be patient.
There will be times when I am silent,
do not mistake my silence for weakness or neglect.
When I feel things,
I feel them deeply,
my emotions often hold me hostage
and render me immobile.
Do not try to save me
– I do not need saving,
I need time and space
so that I can process every impossible thought
and balance it with a sense of reason.
Only then will I feel comfortable in my own skin
and you will get the version of me you rightly deserve.

- ‘If you love me, be patient.’

I will love you

and yet,
even then,
you will become the song
that plays on repeat in my mind.

The kind of people that are stood before the storm,
understand the need for change,
quicker than those that hide from it.
It’s not your responsibility to carry the weight of the world
on your shoulders – all you are doing is lightening the load
on a system that is already flawed and needs to break.
If you want change,
the kind that makes waves,
you can’t pick a fight with the sea, you’ll never win
– its tides are too strong.
Real change begins in the rivers,
in the streams,
amongst the overlooked
and the underappreciated,
but you must not allow your body to become a refuge
for all the broken souls – their sharp edges will wound you
and that wound will rot.
Seek th...

How did we end up like this ?
Where along the line did we miss?

Is there any Explanation to this mess?
Can either one of us truly attest?

The simple facts the have been over-looked;
the ones not set, not by the rules written
in the books.

Reluctant as to what has cluttered and impaired
what once made us competent-
has turned into fear!


Seeking Answers,

Patty Vang

In its obsessive need
to conquer and destroy,
the darkness knew not of my ability
to shed my own skin in order to survive.
You taught me that,
I learnt to let go of the things I no longer need
in the same way you let go of me.

You do not need to change who you are
just to fit the mould, cast by a broken society.
Stick to your values,
make choices that offer long-term fulfilment
instead of short-term solutions that lead nowhere.
There is no turning back when you have sold your soul
and the veil drops and you see the mirage for what it truly is
– an empty highway,
sign posted with places that you will never reach.
You are worth more than that.
Stand your ground.
Own your space.

Good VS Evil

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way-in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."

I have never seen a better allusion to the theme, 'Good VS Evil'. Th...

Communication is important,
it is the key that unlocks the door to a world full of change.
Life doesn’t have to be as complicated as we make it.
The more we talk to each other,
the moment we take that leap of faith and express how we are truly feeling
instead of bottling it all up, the quicker we will realise that we are the answer
to each other’s questions.
Sometimes change can come about from something as simple as
“hello”
or
“how are you feeling today?” ”.
It is easy to lose sight of what’s important,
we are all different,
which is good
– individuality should be celebrated but we are also the same too.
We all think,
we all feel,
we are all capable of love and h...

In the process of saving you,
I convinced myself
that I was being saved too
and yet I have never felt so lost.

There will be days
where you will feel perfectly in tune with your body.
Cherish those moments.
When we completely fall out of touch with our inner self,
the divide becomes apparent to those who know us well
and, in the process, we end up isolating ourselves
from the people that matter the most.
It is important to celebrate ‘oneness’
– that rare moment when our opposing thoughts
and feelings find a common ground,
a united breath.
All those tight bends,
those dangerous corners,
suddenly become an open road
and you will find yourself cruising,
soft top down,
the wind in your hair,
without a care in the world.

Talking about Reading habits of our times, one vital question has to be the relevance of canonical texts. But, what baffles me is the absence of canons in today's world.

Truly, is it merely the increasing population that is the cause of no more Shakespeares  or Keats or Woolf being born? And if they are being born, are the canons of today's Wordsworth's  getting lost somewhere in the crowded, engulfing bottomless abyss of the 21st century?

Why is it that we no more have a tradition, or a school of thought to align to? Is the 'Flat  Earth Theory' the only theory we would debate about? Where are our Foucalts  and Derridas  gone? Centering  the  circular  decenter  maybe?

The question is, ...

I have no desire to gain altitude,
just to escape my current atmosphere.
My body has grown used to the air,
the way it floods my lungs and allows me to breathe freely.
I do not care for space
or do I spend my time worshipping the sun.
I dare say that the sun is envious of us all
– it knows the real stars are present here on earth,
and even though we are grounded,
we still manage to shine brighter.
