Live or Leave

I never want you to feel this way,

You know, like you’re deep in a pit and no one even knows you’re there,

Like the grave is a resting place and life is for the restless,

Like you’re speaking but no one is listening,

Like you’re dying and no one is seeing.

I see you.

I hear you.

And it sucks that you feel this way.

I wish you never did,

I wish your smile never set like the sun,

I wish your laughter didn’t seem like the fading sound of distant waves,

I wish your heart wasn’t hard from all the broken pieces that couldn’t be glued back together.

I wish I could take your pain away,

Absorb the pain like a sponge until you’re free from it,

I wish you didn’t know what it meant to walk under a dark cloud even when the sun was shining overhead,

I wish you didn’t know what it felt like to cry ‘Eli Eli Lama Sabachtani!’

That moment where you begin to question the efficacy of the words ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you,’ while reality screams otherwise.

But you have to feel these things,

For that’s how you’ll know how to comfort others who feel same.

If I hadn’t gone through them, I wouldn’t know what to say to you.

So to answer your question, live or leave? I think it’s best we live ready to leave when our appointment with death comes, as it’s appointed for men once to die, but after this the judgment (Heb 9:27).

So live, my darling! For life is already fleeting as it it seems.

Love,

M.❤️

November Writing Challenge- Prompt 5

Hiya!

Welcome to Day 5 of the writing challenge.

No Single Truth

Today’s topic is a little philosophical. Matter of fact, it cuts through theology, philosophy and psychology (Yup! Had to do a little reading on that). It’s on the concept of ‘no single truth’. Some argue that having a single truth, means the rest are false. But then again how can they be false if those who follow it claim it’s true? Well, I’m not gonna bore you with all that.

Here’s what I think:

We are all trying to seek the truth and meaning of our existence. I hope your truth is absolute, and I hope it charts your way and I hope it gives you life. -M.

We all need a navigation system to get through life. Without it, we’d be lost. That’s why Jesus assures us that He’s the way, truth and life. This is the truth we believe, the path we follow to the father and inevitably the abundant life we’re called to have. Isn’t that just beautiful?! ❤️

Here’s one truth you must know to be true—God loves you just the way you are. And He loves to have a relationship with anyone who would accept Him. ❤️

Love,

M.❤️

November Writing Challenge – Prompts 2-4

Hello guys!

Quick confession: so I challenged myself to write consistently for 30 days. But when I got home from work on Nov 2nd, weak and tired, I knew there was no way I was gonna pull it off. I couldn’t create in a state of fatigue. And then I started feeling bad for letting my blog, my readers and myself down. 😌😌

But hey, it’s day 4 today, and who says I can’t pick up from where I stopped? It so happens that today’s prompt is dear to my heart. I hope you enjoy some of the poems and musings I’ve got right here!

Ps: hope your November has started off well? 🌱🌱🌹🌹

Day 31: Walking Distance

They walked in circles, afraid to say goodbye.

The street lamp stood still.

It had seen many hearts meet, and many hearts break.

They were no different.

-m.e. 2020.


And that’s the end of our August challenge! Thank you so much for walking the distance with me! 😘

I first saw this writing challenge on Instagram and jokingly decided to participate. As I started, I quickly found out how challenging writing consistently for 31 days could be. But here’s the thing about commitment, if you think about the distance you have to go, you may just chicken out.

So here’s what you do, you take one day at a time and just keep at it. Same thing with life… when you start thinking about the future or the past and all the distance you’re yet to cover, you’ll most likely feel anxious or depressed. That’s why you need to try taking one day at a time. Your only job right here is getting through the day. That’s all you’re given, the present. And with that, someday you’ll look back at all the months or years that have passed, just because you kept taking one day at a time.

I really appreciate the readership, and the love you guys showed me. Thanks to you all, I finally hit my 40k goal!!!! 💃🏽 💃🏽 I’m indeed thankful for God’s Grace that kept me going.

Please remember to like, comment and follow the blog! There’ll be many more exciting things coming your way.

So, let me the first to wish you a Sweet September you won’t forget in a hurry! 💕

Lots of love,

M.
