Reflections of the heart

Listen to the echoes

& the whispers from within

You are not alone

I’ll keep you safe

If you live by the rules
 

Feel for the beating flesh

As it rushes and gushes

Far beyond imagination

Crossing every turn

Filling every space

To feed your soul

With the whispers & echoes

That say, listen and understand

You are racing against time

Do you live by the rules?
 

Just listen to the echoes

& the whispers from within

That is your guidance

Till the flesh stops beating

Till the gushes flow no more

The echoes come to an end

& the whispers go silent

Did you live by the rules ?

You will be asked again
 So, listen while you can

To the echoes & whispers from within

That tell you to embrace life

That tirelessly feed your soul

Before your time comes to an end

When you are alone

And no one can keep you safe

Unless you lived by the rules

As echoed by the beating flesh.

Written after my echo @ National Heart Centre (#IJN) on 05052017.

I feel her pain

She broke the news

I went silent

I did not know what to say

Fearing I might hurt her more

I could feel her pain

It was like deja vu

I had been there

But my storm was almost over

Whilst hers had strucked her like thunder

Abrupt and sudden

That she had no time to prepare

When she was told, ” You have cancer”

……

I wish her well, in my prayers I’ll always whisper her name❤

*for a special friend battling with cancer. I know she is strong.

Grieve no more


I learned to ignore

I learned to keep a distance

I allowed myself to grieve

I did not resist

I broke down and cried

Until I suffocated no more

Until I was able to breathe

Until my heart told me that I was ready

To embrace my vulnerability

To embrace my life

And to get back to where I left off

Things will get better, I will get better, that I will always believe.

Vertigo, was it?


Photo : Langkawi October 2016

I saw grey,  was it my eyes? Was it the pain in my head?

My body felt so light like floating in the air, yet my head was heavy

My feet, they were wobbly I could not stay steady

I tried holding onto the wall, my hands they could not feel

I could not open my eyes, I started to see double

Did not know which one was real, I began to stumble

Was it only in my head? Or was it the pain in my head?

Everything moved really fast I could not catch up

I felt like throwing up, nothing came out

Was it the throb in my head? Or was it me that was really weak?

The grey then got darker, the doubles became worst

I fell into my deepest slumber, paralysed in the wildest forest

I lost to the pain in my head…

Was it vertigo? I would ask everytime.

Don’t let it burst

Clearly I was mad

Very angry till I cried

I sealed my mouth tight

Trying hard to stay composed

Though I was burning inside.

Silently I prayed and wiped my tears

Swallowed my anger to avoid danger.

I could not let this outrage burst

Else, many might get hurt

(That was weak of me)

Doctor’s smile

A sincere smile means a lot

When it comes after hard work

I know giving hope is not an easy job

It is pure deed coming from a golden heart

A million thanks I repeatedly said

Will never match the good that I have received

*Dedicated to my doctors, may they be granted the best in life.
