Lebana Speaks: Untold Poetry (A Sonnet)

As I hid in the bars of fate,

little voices tattled behind me.

Withering words ignited hate,

hence, freedom was a plea.


But when I wallowed in the grandeur of tales,

and succumbed in the glory of poetries,

those displeasures, frights, and gales

suddenly disappeared like reveries.


I then escaped from the realm of uncertainty,

which led me to the depths of fantasy.

There I found solace and serenity,

but it also took away my sanity.


Only a fool can fathom how I think.

Translate the odds before you blink.

Equilibrium(Sunday’s Haiku)

Stack of boulders

bravely stood ere the sky

through a magic touch

Life can be compared to that stack of boulders. We may have dissimilar ways of piling things up in our lives. Naturally, we have different strategies, priorities and dreams. However, we should always remember that our thoughts, words and actions should always be in great harmony whatever happens. Or else, the ramparts we’ve once made will fall and eventually turn into ashes. Be sure you are living the life of your dreams. Just don’t let your dreams decay.

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony” Mahatma Gandhi

I was one of THEM!

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I penned something here. I miss all of you so much! Sending my kisses to everyone!

Well, these days have been very noxious to me! There were copious things to do and think about. But surely, those things couldn’t stifle my voice. So, here I am.

Yesterday, I was flabbergasted once again to read another nomination from Gail, my sister and friend here in WordPress. I loved how she encouraged me with her kind words, and how she’s been lifting my crumbling spirit whenever I needed it. She is indeed AWESOME!

How infinite His love is.  He sees how and when to cheer us up. All glory to you, Oh Lord!

I was one of THEM!

I mistrusted myself many times. More often than not, I used to think that I am a worthless being-

That I’m not good enough.

That nobody will bother to listen.

That I am just a freak hoping for someone or something.

That I can’t be one of them-happy and contented.

But, I was wrong! Very wrong!

I have realized that no one can make me feel inferior but myself. I have allowed that inferiority entered, and it infected my whole system. It was like a dreadful malady that spread all over my mind and body.

I was grateful then that I’d waken from that curse before it completely took me.

It’s not what they think. It’s what we think of ourselves.

It’s not what they say. It’s what we say in silence.

It’s not what they do. It’s what we do in their absence.

It’s not about them.

It’s about you.

 It’s about our God.

Have a lovely day, everyone!

God bless you!

God loves you!

What is your Story?

Each of us has a story to tell.

My story is not over yet.

Everything that transpired in the past

has led me to where I am today.

 

I am not afraid of my scars.

Each and every scar has a story,

and the fact that the lesions healed

 reminds me that things get well in time.

 

I write my own story.

I can change the way my story goes.

I can introduce new chapters every day.

I can twist its plot to make it interesting.

 

I appreciate those who come along,

but I am entrusted to myself.

I am capable of building my dreams

and achieving peace and happiness.

 

I am a writer-

a writer of my own destiny

where I am my own hero.
