Midnight Phantom Poem

There comes a time in every woman’s
life where she has to grow up.. and regardless of when and how,
the best time is always now…
and no matter how much it hurts, no matter how angry
your beat-up feelings inside,
it’s never a good idea to shut people out,
because you always end up shutting yourself in…

A lot of people live half a life and half a lie,
it’s so easy to hide your true self from the world,
to hide behind their mask,
to talk without really speaking,
to hear without listening, and to live
and not be alive…

Too many of us are scared of the world and what it may thinkof us…
that if we smile, we’re seen weak…
and then if we laugh, we become foolish…
and that happiness always ends up in hurt…

That is of course until He came… and for one shining moment it all became so simple… and I learned how to live and love…again and again.

And yet now more than ever, I realized that, you can never truly love someone without releasing the ghost of your past…

Disc:
I made some alterations with his poem. This was from one of my ‘have been’ favorite programs because of ‘i don’t really know why’ reasons.

To a Waterfowl, William Cullen Bryant

To a Waterfowl

by William Cullen Bryant

      Whither, ‘midst falling dew,
While glow the heavens with the last steps of day,
Far, through their rosy depths, dost thou pursue
Thy solitary way?

     Vainly the fowler’s eye
Might mark thy distant flight to do thee wrong,
As, darkly painted on the crimson sky,
Thy figure floats along.

     Seek’st thou the plashy brink
Of weedy lake, or marge of river wide,
Or where the rocking billows rise and sink
On the chafed ocean side?

      There is a Power whose care
Teaches thy way along that pathless coast,–
The desert and illimitable air,–
Lone wandering, but not lost.

     All day thy wings have fann’d
At that far height, the cold thin atmosphere:
Yet stoop not, weary, to the welcome land,
Though the dark night is near.

     And soon that toil shall end,
Soon shalt thou find a summer home, and rest,
And scream among thy fellows; reeds shall bend
Soon o’er thy sheltered nest.

    Thou’rt gone, the abyss of heaven
Hath swallowed up thy form; yet, on my heart
Deeply hath sunk the lesson thou hast given,
And shall not soon depart.

    He, who, from zone to zone,
Guides through the boundless sky thy certain flight,
In the long way that I must tread alone,
Will lead my steps aright.

When I was in high school I remember learning about this poem in our English class. My professor was so deep reading this poem in front of the class. I have loved Literature since then. Two days ago, I wrote something about Robert Frost’s In White and Design poems. I had some idea on his thoughts about him questioning the design that was seemingly like fate. His poems was in contrast to Cullen Bryant’s ‘To a Waterfowl’ which tells that someone Divine is taking care of the waterfowl and that Someone is leading the bird’s steps aright. This poem is deep, heart-touching and peaceful.

Do it Anyway: Mother Teresa

– Do It Anyway
Mother Teresa

People are often unreasonable,
illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind,
people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful,
you will win some false friends and true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest anyway.

What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

poem: keep me

This was a poem I made 6 months ago which was posted on my multiply account. Reposting here


Keep me inside you, keep me still.
Keep me sleeping until I feel
That I am ready to face, and see the world,
Face it happy, strong and bold.

To live with Words that come from You.
To live in spirit and forever’s truth
And not with flesh of earthy things.
And let my heart forever sings..

That You Oh Lord is all my life,
All my treasure and heaven’s delight
And when desperate moments call,
It is in only a desperation of You I fall.

No other pain I may gain
But the pain of longing for You to claim
My love, my strength, all my thoughts..
My life, my breathe, my heart and soul.

Euphoric and extremes emotions overwhelmed my senses again today. God, teach me to pray hard, and to pray powerfully, teach me to pray your prayers, unselfish, sincere and pure.  In Your presence i find peace, saturating all doubts and insane thoughts. Let my greatest desire is You. I would choose no other place than being with You. Make me love you more, and deep. Make me cling unto You.
