But day after day

She would lift up the band aid

And find yet a bleeding heart

That just won’t heal. Continue reading “Let it Bleed”

Keep Breathing

IMG_20180211_125713Take a deep breath in

Hold it for a moment

Now let it go slowly

Feel that?

You’re alive.

That may or may not excite you

As life has been a little shaky lately

Almost as if the solid rock you once stood on

Is melting ice, thanks to global warming!

You’re alive.

 That’s something, isn’t it?

It means you still have another chance

To allow life smack you in the face

Or run to the throne of grace.

Everyone dies someday

But for you, not today

So do me one favour, love

Keep breathing.

But amidst all the truckload of academic work, it’s been hard to find a corner where I could get creative. With that said, how are you doing? (for real, you should answer that in the comment section because I really want to know). Continue reading “Journey to Fearlessness”

Lessons from Nike

My classmate, Nike did something that shocked me. It was the eve of Valentine’s and she gave out presents to every member of the class. What endeared me to her was that these weren’t generic presents. She actually took the time to say something about each person. For me, that was a true expression of love.
