thoughts from my mind to yours

For she is a girl…

Don’t clip her wings,

for she wants to fly,

Higher, than the reach of your eyes,

Don’t…

Don’t break her courage,

for she dares to dream,

awake from a past full of screams,

Don’t…

Don’t put her beneath your notice,

for she is a woman,

a mother , a sister, a daughter, who insists,

on being heard,

Don’t…

For as history has shown,

and future will see,

she is beyond grasp,

she is free…

She will learn what there is to learn,

and she will fly in the clear blue skies,

She will rise after each fall,

and she will conquer all that lies,

in her path…

She will not stay under your oppression,

but please do not torture her with your brutality,

she is stronger than you will ever know,

but set her free, in the name of humanity,

for she is a girl, and she can do everything,

that can possibly be.

Let the barriers fall

Let the barriers fall,

and teach that wounded heart

to smile again…

For  you are part of this magnificent universe,

that smiles back at you

if you look carefully enough…

once you remove your veil of tears.

So let the barriers fall,

and teach that wounded heart to smile again.

Illuminate

Sometimes when the journey seems long

and life demands you to be strong…

You look at the stars,

and think about their light travelling so far

in twinkling waves of light years…

just to illuminate the skies

for our eyes

humbling us

with its’ existence…

and the journey does not seem so long

anymore.

Don’t give up on you…

Don’t give up…

on that dream,

sought by your tired eyes,

for even this long lonely night,

will be followed by the light

of day…

the tides rising in your heart will calm,

Keep walking on your way…

Don’t give up,

on you.

20 Things I would tell my 20-Year-Old Self- World is free So are you!

When I was five years old, I used to think “20” was the biggest number that could possibly be…and anyone older than that, was clearly “TOO OLD!”. I remember telling my dad that when I would be “20 and grown up” I would buy all the candies I want, have a car, own a home and be an astronaut. My dad at the time had just smiled and asked if I would have shared some of my candies with him.

Now, it has been a few years since I have crossed that milestone, am not an astronaut, still dream about owning all the candies and have probably become “TOO OLD” for my five-year-old self. Being a little more self-reflective than I was back then, I thought I would make a list of things I would tell my 20-year-old self. I would never change the past, but these are just some things I would share with my younger self…
1.) You’re NOT TOO OLD!

2.) You DON’T have to figure things out this instant

3.) Always keep dreaming and believe in yourself.

4.) That paper you just bombed is not the end of the world. Neither will all the papers in your future that you may struggle with, bring doom to civilization.

5.) Follow your heart but also listen to your mind. Usually when it is right, they both agree.

6.) Cherish the moments with family and good friends

7.) Don’t be too mad at the world. You are stronger than you know.

 

8.) Yes, you will find the person for you. Be happy and enjoy the moment.

9.) You cannot fix everything. Learn to let go sometimes.


10.) Don’t give up on things that matter.

11.) Be more patient with your parents.

12.) Don’t be too naive and trust blindly.


13.) You do not carry the weight of the world on your shoulder. The world is free and so are you.

14.) Always be kind and have faith

15.) Learn to stand up for yourself and to stand for what is right. Speak Up when need be.


16.) If you’re feeling awkward and shy with a group of new people, they are probably feeling it too. Take a leap of faith and break the ice.


17.) You will never have it all figured out and there will always be questions. But that is a good thing

18.) Be healthy and think positive. The sooner you get on this treadmill the better.

Lyrical Inspiration: Climb Every Mountain

IMG_0420

“Climb every mountain,
Search high and low,
Follow every highway,
Every path you know.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
‘Till you find your dream.

A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life
For as long as you live.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream

A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life,
For as long as you live.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream.”
