It’s easy to judge someone, based on what you see
and form an opinion of them that will be completely wrong.
You will learn a lot about yourself as a person
if you understand that everyone has a different story to tell
that has been lived beyond the page.
Be patient.
Listen.
Always treat people with kindness and remember that flowers bloom
when the sun shines, they open up because they trust its warmth.

it’s been a while since the last time we spoke to each other
with intimacy drawing itself upon our distance to erase it
as though both of us were in a relationship so pure
that i’d be willing to let myself spill the truth for you to devour it

you always had a way to get me crumbling for you
this girl, Ana, told me that i was not good enough to be her friend
that you and i were the perfect pair so true
that the world would stay quiet just to listen to us make love

this boy, Miles, said i was too ugly and fat
that i carried an elephant’s baby in my belly
he said food was probably my way to distract
myself from how horrible my everything is

often i’d go home and cry
tears on my pillow, you by...

Greetings!
I've been writing poems for over twenty years now. During that time, several people have encouraged me to write a book of poems. I kept putting it off because I doubted myself and their words. Recently I was compelled to use what was in my hand and write a book. There is more to come. I know that this is the time to get the word out there while I can see it. It's entitled "From Crisis to Confidence".  It's on Amazon and set to be released on August 20.

Poetically yours,

Soulinkspeaks

These days I spend my time reading... I have read so much.... to escape. Escape, and to be someone else for a moment.. be immersed in a book so much it becomes your reality for as long as the chapters can hold you... just so you can forget who you are. So I dont have to remember I am me!

Sometimes, you must:
Hurt in order to know,
Fall in order to grow,
Lose in order to gain,
.....Because most of Life's greatest lessons are learnt through pain!

For the Feminists' 101 : according to Nathaniel Hawthorne 1850, The Scarlet letter A, if your husband is a douchebag, then adultery ain't a sin, it's Feminism.

Paulo Coelho once wrote.. The best way to get to know a city is to get lost in it... I suppose the same applies to a person. So, rather than dipping your toe, dive right in to them... mayhap you'll end up drowning in something that you have no urge to surface from.

I have been walking towards you my entire life,
hopeful that one day we will meet
somewhere in the middle.
When it comes to love,
I have no interest in triangles.
I see no value in moving in never-ending circles either,
especially when the centre is always the heart of everything.

‘You are my centre.’

I am not affected by your level of hate.
If I wanted to experience the kind of power
you think you possess, I would visit the sea
at its moment of weakness and give myself
to the raging tides.

I once read that Samuel Beckett wrote 'Waiting for Godot' in French because it forced him to be more attentive to the lexicon and grammatical structures he employed in his masterpiece.
Some time ago I sent a friend of mine (who can speak English and who is also a colleague) a poem I wrote for them.
I had encased my chaotic thoughts in the finest glittery English words, knit as delicately as grandma would knit a lace shawl or a baby sweater.
I had checked once and twice that my poem felt smooth to the touch, that there were no yarn ends left  loose, and  that I hadn't forgotten a pin somewhere as I struggled against the needles to craft the gift.
When I finally presented my work to my frien...

I have found more morality

More ethics

In the literature of authors

Such as Dostoyevsky

Orwell

Kafka

Than I have ever found

In any religious text.

You will never achieve the peace
you desire if you keep surrounding yourself
with people who emit a sound that differs from yours.
We all thrive at different frequencies;
you should never get to the point
where you become accustomed
to high level noise,
those that do,
end up becoming what they hear.

Wu Wei - Effortless Action

Something Taoists say we can learn by watching water.

When a stream comes to some stones in its path, it doesn't struggle to remove them, or fight against them, or think about them. It just goes around them. And as it does it sings. Water responds to what's there with effortless action. -The Te of Piglet

One of the many advantages to seeing things as they are is that we can solve problems through observation and deduction. After all, how can we solve problems if we can't first clearly see what they are? And the best time to see them is in the beginning. "Trouble is easily stopped before it commences," wrote Lao-tse. " Put things in order before chaos occurs." In other words, an ounce of prevention. Is worth a pound of "pesticide." -The Te of Piglet

My alma mater was books

A good library

I could spend the rest of my life

Just reading

Just satisfying my curiosity.

Everyone is different;
we all have our mountain to climb.
The dizzy heights
that leave people breathless,
can also,
for some,
exist at its base.

‘Levels of anxiety.’

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
