Hoy no es un día cualquiera, hoy es un día muy especial.

Hoy amanecí lleno de vida y muy agradecido con Dios.

Hoy se asomó el sol un poco más brillante por mi ventana y me deja observar un cielo azul y despejado. Si, él sabe que hoy este sábado es peculiar y me desborda el alma.

Search of soul, is a hunt - you can't crawl!
Like a river, you may shiver, just keep flowing & don't be scared if you fall...

You will splash & roll
Hunt of soul is a plight for mighty souls
You can travel unraveled path...
Sometime it makes you wise or people may call you mad!!!

Who cares what they think, what we attain is our state of mind...
What you gain is your find...
Your inner solace, will make you ignore everyone & you will attain your inner strength to embrace
Embrace people eliminating all vices & look at everything with its niceness!!!

We are all
Just a car crash
A diagnosis
An unexpected phone call
A new found love
Or a broken heart
Away from becoming
A completely
Different person
How beautifully fragile
We are
That so many things
Can take but a moment
To alter who we are
Forever

A lot of what life is,
is paying for others' pride, incompetence, mistakes...and then adding ours to that list for others to inherit.

How can something as tragic as this realization
be so comedic?

God invented laughter, there's no doubt in my mind.
We thank Him for daily doses, bomnardments of divine comedy.

You cannot play the role of victim
When you behave like a predator.
You cannot play the role of loser
If you ever expect to be a winner.
You cannot be a liar of convenience
If you ever wish to be truly trusted.
You cannot ever really fall in love
If you don’t give your whole heart. You cannot ever be truly loved
If you refuse to love yourself first.
However, the truth simply is:
Your desire to change for better
Can make all your dreams possible.

Or is it that a god is only good when thought of as dead?
Only good when fast asleep?

He was five years old and he was molested by some people. He lived a few more years to realise that it was just a start.
When he fourteen years old he was bullied and molested again by some people.
One day he went on a trip with his friends and they all were in a pool, playing volleyball. After the game his so called friends held him and shoved him underwater. He could barely breathe. He nearly saw death but his friends pulled him out seconds before. He realised that maybe his lonesomeness put a blindfold on his eyes and these people are not his friends. He stopped swimming as he became hydrophobic. He still is, but now he lives alone and is following his dreams. He...

Everyday the same battle
waking up not knowing who to be

Everyone in my life knows a different me

As I get older I often forget who I should be

I have this bag it goes everywhere with me

It holds everyone of me
packed nice and neat

I won't leave the house unless
they go with me

Sin querer me di cuenta de los graves errores que estaba cometiendo, en realidad, fue gracias a mi mamá.

Ella es mi mejor amiga, ella sabe todas mis penas y alegrías, ayer por la noche me escucho hablar con mi novio y al terminar me dijo "parece que lo estuvieras presionando" basto que ella termine esa frase para detenerme a analizar todo lo que dije en la conversación y si, estaba intentando amoldarlo a mi gana olvidando por completo las razones por las cuales me enamore de el. Quizás este error lo he cometido siempre pero creo que nunca había sentido tanto por una pareja que me lleve a determe y analizar todo, hacer que realmente quiera que las cosas funciones y poner realmente parte de mi...

They say I'm wild
hard to defuse
Walking around lost
not knowing my next move
Making sure my wall
you never break through
Setting fire to reenforce
the distance between me and you
I don't know how to trust
it's always been the hard to do
Convinced I have to leave
before you get the chance to
Scared if I settle down
I'll end up getting burnt with you
Hot-headed
Angry
An confused
Always worked for me
that is until I met you
Taking me by the hand
my fire you slowly defused
Scraping through the ashes
you found pieces of me
I never even knew
exploring my past
while letting me know I'm safe with you
The leavel of peace I felt that first night sleeping next to you
made me feel things I only dreamt...

Not sure if we can be friends



You broke my heart once,

And I can't let myself let you do it again

I'm not down for repetition

This shit's gotta end



You have a full on girlfriend

You kissed me and lied to my face

"Thank God I am single", you said

I will NOT be your escape.



You probably used me

To get back at her

इत्तेफाक से चलते हुए जब उस मुकाम पर मै आया,
वहीं पुराने जमाने को कुछ बदला हुआ मैंने पाया,
यादें तो थीं वहां, पर वो यार नहीं थे,
वादे भी थे, पर वो प्यार नहीं था,
वो दीवारें कुछ मुरज़ा सी गई थी,
नज़र जो फेरी, वो नम हो गई थी,
वक़्त गुज़र गया था, कुछ ऐसे जो बदल गया था,
थमे हुए इस कदमों के साथ, यहां खुदको मैंने अकेला पाया .

She's a beautiful dreamer with eyes like an angel
A body to die for and a mind just like mine.
She keeps all her thoughts and dreams in a journal
The passion she writes with keeps growing with time.
Sometimes her dreams are playful and vivid
Sometimes her thoughts are scary and dark.
I wish I could be there to help and to heal her
And put back together her sad, broken heart.

If she just lets me in and gives me her trust
I'll hold her together and keep her from breaking.
I've already fallen for her beauty and charm
My mind and my body are hers for the taking.
So my dream girl exists I've finally found her
Scarred and beaten but a spirit unbroken.

Dear people of the world,

We are all butterflies unable to see our own beauty. Only others can truly see it. If people say you are not beautiful they are the caterpillars who do not see the beauty you posses, only your strangeness in how different you are. That does not mean that your beauty is nonexistent, only that they focus on how you are different and not the beauty and color of your wings.

Love from Ashlee Grace B.

There are three people standing on the top of a mountain. This mountain overlooks humanity and its entirety. They can see time pass, from the cavemen to the astronauts that went to the moon, to the scientist today curing cancer. One of them looks up at the sky and says: "Breathtaking." The only girl of the three tilts her head up too and sighs lightly. She closes her eyes and searches blindly for a hand of the second man. Their hands intertwine and she guides his body closer to her. Finally the last one of the trio aims his eyes at the sky too. There they are, three people, on the top of a mountain, having the possibility to see humanity and its entirety, yet choosing to look at the sky. They...

THE MYSTERY

That air of intimidation blew me over.

The evening grew duskier. My Roman antique clock tick tocked.

The tenor turned cold. My phone kept ringing like one fire alarm. I ignored.

I ran down the staircase, only to be found alone in my home. I panicked.

There was a letter on the diners table. And it read just what happened above. The same lines written down neatly with no signature. I flipped it over. It was plain. Trembled was I.

I opened the door of my store room. The room was organized, like one cleaned up crime scene. But the pungency was hard to ignore.

I blocked my nose and walked further, into the corner of the room. She was there, waiting for me. Lifeless.

Dear letterists

At first when I was very very young, I was told that a home is a building you live in. A building made of bricks and cement and doors and windows.

So I loved mine with all my heart. Decorated the walls and the windows with little drawings and stuff. But then one day, I had to leave that house.

As I grew older, I realised that a house becomes a home because of the people who live in it. The memories they create there. The walls and the windows and the doors become witnesses to those memories as they are created, remembered and relived over the years.

So I decided to make a human being my home. For some time it was wonderful. But I always slept with one eye open. There w...

Dear
people with broken heart & the ones who tend to break,

His Love Is Accumulating Dust On My Heart. It's piling up. He who walks into my life first decides to run his finger over it. It's hell, hopeless & disappointing when the dust sticks to him & he wipes it off. Even my tears are unable to wash it off.

Loneliness creeps in like a black, disgusting devil but I've rose from the grave, dug in the way of underworld. I'm able to battle with him!

There's no predetermined paths this time around. There's more freedom than ever. Most people now get to figure themselves out, what they want to do, who they want to be with, where they're gonna live without much givens. Where your from or who your family is doesn't matter as much (at least not in the US). It's a blessing for sure, an option that my family never really had before. Yet it's also a burden. Especially where's there pressure on you to find all these things before a given time. If only it was that easy. There's millions of doors now,endless possibilities, people make decisions in a snap and judge just as fast because there's so much. It's frustrating sometimes, you don't wanna jus...

She taught me hope when I saw none,
She taught me how to smile when I had no reason to,
She taught me strength and all I wanted to do was hide
She taught me faith, when I lost mine
She held me up, when everyone else let me down,
She's a summer day,  sunshine, warmth and fresh air,
I'm the older sister, and yet ironically, she's taught me how to live.

It takes real courage
to continue to live in a house
and call it a home,
knowing full well it contains rooms
that hold memories that cause you pain.
Locked doors tend to highlight the things
they are designed to hide and, in the process, further add
to the feeling of isolation.
You will never heal if you refuse to acknowledge your demons
– they will remind you of their presence
and there will be no escape from the daily torment.
Be brave.
Open every door.
Face what you fear, head on.
Ghosts from your past have no place in your future.

the sunlight burns in our rear view mirror,
a canopy of flames following close behind
we say goodbye to the bittersweet glow,
our bodies exhausted from chasing
too many unending horizons,
brutal and beautiful and beckoning
nights and days blending together,
moonrise - twilight - ethereal dawn,
each one feeding into the next
like a record on repeat
the highway bends like wisteria vines
and we just drive,
this feeling in our chest pushing us on,
demanding that we
run
explore
escape
anything to remove this ache in our veins,
anything to feed the wild in our hearts

People who cry are not weak. They are strong and fearless. Those who avoid crying are the ones with a weakness, for they hide their pain and fear confronting their own emotions. @PLECCA

  I am on a collision course

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.

My blood is a battlefield.
My cells are in conflict.

I am conquered and conqueror.
I am enslaved and free.

Wars rage in each heart beat.
Injustice perpetrated by my breath

Against my own people.

Neither place welcomes me.
Other in every way.

Those who oppressed are evil.
Those who are oppressed are wary.

My skin betrays my home.
My speech and eyes betray my passing.

Unwanted.
Untrustworthy.

Confused.

My blood is a battlefield.
There is no safe haven behind either line.

I am caught in the crossfire.
I am wrecked by the fray.

Constantly defending my heart land
Constantly searching for my home land

Abandoned by both.

Some see me as friend.
Some see me as foe.

And I...

But the colours finally did!

pursued by aerial mushrooms
that life reclaims the

Home of four

mother is the true creator

excused sterility
in obeyance to

emergent productivity
shelters a panoply

The waves are still now

There is air

At last the storm with all it fury and duration has past

There is no more yesterday

Only tomorrow and the now

We belong in line with both

Regret none

Where you and I met
Across the spans of time

The threads connecting
Us together
Untwine and rewind

That sweet knowing
Of who we once were

I wish on a falling star
To tell you my wish
Written on your hand

The question in the wind
"What is your name?"

Never well equipped;
I ran into battle.

Facing my giants!

They would break me,
And; take me down.

Earnestly; I built up the courage to persist.

Humbled I realized,
In my heart;
There was still hope.

It's been awhile since I wrote anything of significance in any capacity.  So many years, so many decades I searched for the "others" . Those mythical beings that were in easy possession of an infinite array of weird, magical and unfathomable ideas.  The kind of folks I loved listening to and sharing with until 4 in the morning .
I traveled 48 states, 8 provinces and 3 countries over decades and sought out these unicorns,  these ghosts of the world.

That the sad (but expected) and quite tragic lesson that I learned was that they or you (I suspect you who read this...) are very, very rare.  I cannot count the many times when I started a conversation with someone,  got my hopes up in the exc...

No matter how hard I tried,
I always ended up losing you..
I kept you so close to me;
But you still chose to leave.
I spent my savings on you;
But you never gave a heed.
I slept thinking about you last night;
Wanting to keep you safe,
because you were my only one,
My dearest!
But when I woke up , you were gone, Gone like the wind...

I let you keep my sight together, but you still wandered away everytime.
I never let anybody have you..
I treated you like my own baby;
But you were least bothered to hold on to me or my feelings!!

And there will come a day,
When tears have no place here.
And I fear its arrival, for the
Moment the rain clears and the
Clouds move on, is the second
The sun starts to shine, on a Time

Hello there,
I found this hidden gem when I was looking for a writing app or something or other (can't remember exactly) a few months ago then I got busy and stuck in the rat-races of life these days but isn't that the same with everyone. So it sat there on my phone in a folder that I access quite regularly just collecting dust (so to speak), so today I finally  had some downtime so I finally decided to set up an account and give this app a try.

I am not sure how exactly this really works but the way that I think that it works is that its like talking to the moon and stars in the sky above me when I am missing someone I love who has passed away just hoping that I could hear their voice o...

Look around you. Observe the world that you are living in.

Can you feel the beating of a thousand desperate hearts?

Can you see the fear for tomorrow in the looks of people?

Can you hear the cries of a thousand mothers who are losing their children each day?

Now ask yourself, is this the place where you always want to live?

Is this the place where each child expects to grow up when they open their innocent eyes and see the world for the first time?

Are you able to look in the eyes of those children without the feeling of shame for this reality full of evil, which they have to face?

Is this what we have prepared for them throughout centuries and years?

We cannot deny ...

Hi all,
It's unique, kind of weird, but seems like a lot of fun so even I'm writing to you, for the first time, not knowing who you are, or what I'm supposed to talk about.

I think my first letter should be about motivation, as it has been the sole reason of all that I've achieved till date.

I can safely say, every individual, on this earth can achieve more than what he has, do more than what he's doing and can go beyond his capabilities.. with a motivated mind.

Wish you the best.

Dear Lettrs,

I think that my first letter here should be written to you. I came to this website by chance while I was browsing for something else for my friend, but it kept me for quite some time before I've moved on.

Some of the letters here are very emotional and they reach out. Reading these, it reminded me of something my friend said (about diaries, but the meaning is the same): "Do you know why people open their hearts to a piece of paper? Because they cannot confide to other people." Here, after quite some time passed since I've first heard it, I think I finally understand what she meant.

It's too early to say whether I'll be writing here regularly or not, but I think that ther...

Not sure if we can be friends



You broke my heart once,

And I can't let myself let you do it again

I'm not down for repetition

This shit's gotta end



You have a full on girlfriend

You kissed me and lied to my face

"Thank God I am single", you said

I will NOT be your escape.



You probably used me

To get back at her

There she stood across the battle field. The one that was only whispered about in hushed tones. I shivered under her gaze as I stared at her auborn blonde hair, braided with daggers. She smiled when she caught me staring, a wolfish, predatory smile. I knew she could devour me whole. I felt a burning in my chest as she walked closer. Fire. Lightening. Her eyes flashing colors so fast I couldn’t tell exactly their true color. I could just feel her piercing my soul.

“Hello lad. You here to join the army?” Her thick Scottish accent was hard to distinguish. I couldn’t even begin to guess her age. That smile, the one that was hungry, never left her mouth. She smelled of iron. I couldn’t tell if i...

This year still I'm feel static the different is I'm more enthusiasm with learning English and sometime I'm encourage people to learn and also to speak in English. It was so fun and exciting I really enjoyed.

It's good to know some new people from around the world. Seeing how desperate, optimist, and sometime annoyed they are to Learn make me feel there are lot of things need to discover. Deep in my heart somehow feel it's impossible to connect with them. I think it's just temporary once it's finished it's done everyone take their own path probably forgotten what they left behind.

Hello everyone,

It's been quite some time, a little over a month.

First of all, health check. I'm feeling pretty good lately. I still got some episodes going on, not gonna lie. But the span kept decreasing as time goes. This month, I only got 2 episodes. And that's an improvement. My wrist had been healing pretty well too, though I still can't use pencil or pen to write for too long, doctor said my muscle still needs time to recover. And lastly, Dr.Wanda had finally agreed to keep me loose. Meaning I don't have to go to an appointment every week, just once a month will do.

Next, my education situation. I got the major I aimed!!! Yes, I'm over the moon right now. I got the acceptance...

You spilled food on your dress
Your hair is a mess
But you know I like it that way
You smile politely as you listen to me
Though you're afraid of what I'll say
And I'm afraid of the hard truth
The truth being that I'm the only one in love

For the hardest goodbye your dark brown eyes
Still shine so beautiful and bright
Forever the most wonderful sight
I smile and say its alright
I hope you have a wonderful life

FOREVER
