Cheers to positivism

I’ve never really let my guard down around people but I truly want to enjoy quality time with some friends I know I  can confide in. Between the backstabbing, the misunderstandings, the fights and the gossiping, I find it hard to trust someone that will sell me out the moment we get a set back. 

This is why my pessimist self is so glad to have been proven wrong today when I enjoyed a sunny Friday afternoon with my classmates. It’s hard to imagine having a good time with acquaintances because we just keep it superficial but sometimes we can get a very enjoyable moment out of it. 

So cheers to good surprises in life

Abruë – 01

She has a pretty face, 

She has curvy body, 

She has a beautiful voice, 

She has that wonderful smile, 

In many many ways  she looks amazing.
She has a gentle personality, 

She has a very soothing approach, 

She gives sounds advices, 

In many many ways, she’s a smart woman. 
She is kind, she is generous, she is lovely, she is encouraging, she is inspiring, she is charismatic. She is like a goddess within reach. Everyday, she comes out of her house ready to push someone to climb the ladder and every night, she comes back satisfied to have reached her daily goal. 

So many followers, so many fans. So many haters, so many skeptics. It does make sense that one or two would bound to investigate and stalk her out-of-the-spotlight life. But even so, she’s so private, maybe too much. 

And that’s maybe why, she couldn’t be saved. 

A fool I was

I wanted to feel something, so I went outside in the rain. 

I took a few steps on my backyard and stopped. The rain was pouring and the water falling on me was heavy. 

I looked up to the sky, it was dark. I spent a moment there, wondering what would happen to me if it turned to a storm, if the wind picks up, if the sky becomes alive with white flashes and loud sounds.

I sneezed, it made me realize. I was soaked to the bone and my body was really cold. I went back inside and fought for warmth through warm baths and hot beverages. 

It was already too late and in the morning, as my head was throbbing and my breathing hard, I thought

To catch a cold instead of feelings, how a fool I was.

I closed my eyes and pray 

I closed my eyes and pray.

I prayed the Father who’s in the sky, the Saints that sing his glories, the angels that serve him, the Holy Mother he chose to give birth to his Holy Son.

I closed my eyes and pray. I called for the Holy Spirit, asking for purification, begging for forgiveness, in hope of enlightenment. 

I closed my eyes and pray. I talked “one sidedly” with my ancestors, envisioning their lives, crying for the agonies of those who were sent away from Home. 

I closed my eyes and pray 

And pray

And pray 

And pray 

My eyes were shut so long, my reality escaped me, my eyes were seeing something new, my brain forgot my environment, my memory was a blur. 

Why was I praying?  What did I want? What was I expecting? Did I do right? 

I couldn’t figure any of these so, again, 

I closed my eyes and pray 

Why you gon do like that 

Why you gon keep that thing from me

Why you gon do like that 

Why you gon act like you don’t know me

Baby don’t do like that 

Baby don’t tell me you don’t know that you’re beautiful 

Do Like That, Korede Bello
