I Will Trust, Again

Pay me to trust, really, pay me with a blank check
on a platter, make it a sweet story just to trust
fix my history, mould my present
hold my future, meet my prequisite just to trust
Just to trust, again.

life's been bitter and more bitter
sweetness has been a tease
the sweet things either have an origin in sadness
or end with a knot in horror

I'm a stunning beauty
life hasnt dealt with according to my physique
so pay me, pay me to believe
to believe that life is just a coward
afraid of the power of my king
who moulds beauty out of life

born in sin, bred on the palm of wickedness
promised and dissappointed in a cycle

Life's reaction; My action

I grasped it, the tide of turbulence
I won it, the battle of belief
I fought it, the fear of fury
I taught it, the tips to taming
I loved it, the fun of family
I felt it, the pinch of poverty
I lived it, the life of liberty

Oh, I saw it, the light of 'liberty'
Believed it, the password to 'poverty'
confessed it, the freedom from 'family'
allowed it, the truth that 'tames'
detested it, the flight into fury
hated it, the beauty of the belief
coated it, the triumph over turbulence

How that, the turbulence of trials TAUGHT
The belief of bare beauty BORN
The fury of the founder FROZEN
The taming of the tiger TAKEN in

Faith- wavering's loss and unwavering's key.

The limitation of a shallow mind
better still, a faithless soul
little like a mustard seed is all I need
but like a 'grain' of salt have I not
so big the belief sometimes but in it like a balloon it is
a little pin in my 'big' faith- so be it.R.I.P- I am bidding
the word explicit
ask anything- In faith
receive nothing- In doubt
pins exist to balloons
then flee with the balloons
better then, make the balloons solid
grip tight by grasping
never let go to receive
my heart wanders
no wonder I have to pass by shadows of darkness
the key to any thing's- faith- reception
like a bird in it's cage this minute but in the air the next
How can I close this cage?
roam only but remain in my solitude

The loss of a poem

Losing a poem is like losing a life
A poem that seems set to make history
then itself now becoming history
by a saddened mystery
that emulates it's attribute 'mystery'

A dear poem just evaporates
into air so thin for recovery
that I wonder how else to retrieve
the beautiful artwork of description
that flowed down my fingers
as I penned down my insights

I have lost this to foolishness
as I copied not a draft
to fall on, on the occasion of a loss

I tried really hard to reborn
the thoughts that had a part to play
in the mix of the words displayed

Smile and Grin

Smile even when the path is rough
Grin even when the competition is tough
Smile when the battle is fierce
Grin when the words[truth] pierce
Smile as the head aches in severe pain
Grin as your hard work brings no gain
Smile to the bank when the figures there are few
Grin to tank when all in it is dew
Smile with your siblings in sorrow
Grin with the tidings that says you borrow
Smile when you pursue but you seem lazy
Grin when the future seems hazy
Smile just as a love is lost
Grin though the cost is a lot
Smile as you lose your freedom
Grin as you belong to the thorn's kingdom
Smile when you fall into a ditch
Grin when you encounter a hitch
Smile when locked lies you door
Grin when you appear climbing but still lay on the floor

You may be FAT but are you BEAUTIFUL?

The definition of beauty doesn't point singularly to physical appearance.
It is undeniable that it is good to be healthy
but it is idolatry to believe only the society's desire is acceptable.

God allowed us look the way we do and loves us thus
He loves the big, the small, the slim, the fat, the muscular, the average, the overweight, the underweight
One that cheers you on physically when you really are unhealthy is the friend to be avoided

If 'you are fat' is a fact, deal with it
Why seek to feel good about ones state when it leads an unhealthy regret down the road.
Pride in one's skin is more than just belief in one's being
It is a fertilizer for ones sense of appreciation
And a reinforcement for a bold mind unfazed by agents that taunt resilience.

Another thought that should not be entertained for a second
Is the idea that though one is healthy, there is a size for the society's perfect
One may work towards feeling better about ones physical look or keeping ones size
but that there is a perfect size to be met is a false attempt geared toward pleasing a fantasial idol

Don't let Barbie dictate what ought and what not
