thoughts from my mind to yours


20 Comments

Yesterday, I saw you cry…

Yesterday, I saw you cry

from the comforts of the window

of my computer screen…


Yesterday, my heart broke

for there was nothing I could do

as I watched your tiny war torn faces…

Your bleeding aches,

so prominently captured 

on the 2 minute facebook message.


Yesterday, I sent a prayer for help,

to help you and other innocent children,

innocent people and innocent lives…

for though I can choose to skip this video

when it appears tomorrow…

you are tragically stuck,

in the most tragic of circumstances…


So today I write,

and I hope my words bring peace,

my words spread love,

and my words can be of some comfort…

And though it’s not enough,

I write and I pray,

for you.

Be Kind, always – Happy World Kindness Day!

We don’t need a special day to be kind, but kindness is always special. Be kind to your heart, be kind to your mind, and be kind to the world around you…Happy World Kindness Day!

That day…

The world forgot to be kind,

and you forgot to be patient,

and in between figuring out who you were,

and where you came from,

and why you were here,

the clouds of life,

poured on you,

and your heart cried with the rain…

but,

when it was over,

and though the world did not change,

you felt lighter and soul felt cleansed,

and you noticed the smiles among the frowns,

and drenched in what was your pain,

you found that little piece of joy again,

you followed the rainbow of life.

In hope of kindness

Tread gently,

for behind those eyes you see

lies a lady

dreaming her last dream…

Tread gently,

for behind those eyes,

lies a child

looking at the skies

for the first time…

Tread gently,

for behind those eyes

lies a man

building his home of imagination…

Tread gently,

for behind those eyes

lies a person

whose heart has been broken a million times

but they still send a smile

to the new day….

Tread gently,

for the world awaits…

in hope of kindness.

Hope

Keep hope my heart
for in this wayward journey
of infinite possibilities
the sadness that grips you
shall pass
keep hope my heart
and wish upon the stars
that travelled so far
to light the darkness
from a world apart

Keep hope my heart
for you are still beating
with love, with dreams, with life…
keep hope my heart.
