Path & light

To learn is a life long commitment. You’ll never know/learn enough. The dark path that you thought had brought you down can lead you to the most beautiful things in your life. It is fascinating to see how dreams transform into reality and how much you can achieve in the most difficult times when you least expect them. Trust your instinct, put your heart and mind into it… and venture down that that path with hope and courage. That’s the beacon that will not lead you astray. Look hard and follow the light. That beacon’s light is always there but sometimes you are distracted by the scenery around you making you forget its call. Seek for the light… dare yourself to dream, and dream big. Trust me, you’ll get there…

Have I found mine? I dare not say…

Author; The Doctor is Sick (2016)

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 nameā¤

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

Vertigo, was it?

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.
