I am there, we all are | motivation

There are times in life where we fall to the floor helpless with not a clue of how to get up, it is at that moment we feel pain, hurt, sadness or whatever feelings it is that afflict you.

I want you to know, you are not alone.You hear these words a lot but this time I really want you to know you are not alone.

When you cry for the loss of a loved one, someone out there is crying for theirs too.

When the world throws its harships at you remember you are not alone.

You are not alone because at that very same moment where you lost all hope, someone out there lost hope too.You weren’t alone.

Each of us are afflicted wiith different calamities in life.Perhaps its poverty, health, family, no love, no happiness.Whatever it may be, but we all go through something that makes us human.

When you feel the world against you remember that person who is going through what you’re going through and remember you aren’t alone.You may be miles apart but within your heart know that you aren’t the only one.

When you want to give up and say you have no meaning in life take your words back because from the minute you were born you affected every person’s life with your presence. You had a story and you are part of one,this may be the part where you have to accomplish and win the success over your trials, it may be that your problems become your greatest strength one day.And when you look back you’ll be grateful.

So don’t give up when you’re so close to overcoming it,and if this is only the beginning for you then strive through it, cry and cry but never ever question your worth or purpose.You have purpose, you are purpose.

And if you feel you have nobody there for you then I can be there for you, the voice that will somehow try to always help you if others won’t, I will because I too have been at some point where I felt there was no hope, but I was wrong, there always is.

-you’re amazing and worth it, nobody has the right to demean your worth, not even you.



Bodies of rage | Poetry

The sky was a tranquil body

Yet within the flash of a second it

denaturized and turned into a

treacherous being,

And that’s how i learnt the hand that

saves is also the hand that destroys

And that’s how i learnt from nature

that the most composed bodies hid rages of ire

within them.
