Greetings

Intoxicating!

Seemingly endless effect!

The joy of Christmas!


Compliments of the season to you my lovely WP friends! ❤ Hope you’re enjoying your holiday.

This season is beautiful; friends, family, meetings, thanksgivings, celebrations…

The spirit of Christmas intoxicates. We are lost in joy and love and food. And when it comes to an abrupt end, our eyes open and we see clear. We realise how much this joy had given and taken. We become sober once more and hope and plan for another Chrismas – an unending cycle.

This Christmas, I decided not to travel to my hometown. It’s almost a taboo for me to celebrate Chrismas away from home, because it’s an opportunity to meet with family and friends who live away from me. But it’s okay 😀. There’s always another Christmas.

Have a swell time this holiday season!

Love,

Florence

Peace Within

I wake to sweetness

every single day.

I feel guilt as well

that these days,

I mirror more

the positive side of life;

that I’m not brought down 

by these thrusting issues

looming around me.

I’m mostly shocked 

that I smile, laugh 

dance and skip,

when I should shrink 

into my unpleasant shell

And groan till 

I groan no more.

And to think that I do 

not make much effort

to cage the impact 

of an awful mood

is a rare miracle.

It’s as if there’s nothing

At all to fuss about.

Now, they say

I’m the fairest of all.

Haha, how exact 

their words!

I’m at my best since 

manner began

 to proclaim so.

Feels like I walk around

defrauding them?

Guiding them

 to believe what

Isn’t real?

Should I wear dilemmas 

Like befitting apparel,

And walk the boulevards

As though I’m insane?

– To show off the details of me?

 I’m strong enough

 to impede 

those annihilating

 emotions.

And I’m blessed 

to be this way.

I’m blessed to have God.

Peace within.

If I’m Forced To Fight

If I’m forced to fight, I’ll fight.

I’ll fight for what is mine

I’ll fight with all my might

I’ll give up everything.

But while I still have

Life in me, I’ll raise

My hands in the air.

I’ll fight for freedom

I’ll fight for love

I’ll fight for my possession 

I’ll Fight from dawn to dusk

I’ll fight with all my strength

But while I still have

Life in me, I’ll  raise 

My hands in the air.

I fight to live, not to die.

I fight to fight again,

Not to fight to death.

I fight to save my life,

Not to bring an end.

I’ll have this in mind

Whenever I fight for

What is mine


Our past heroes fought till the last drop of their blood but they fought for nothing. Millions lost their lives, yet nothing was achieved. Why fight again? Why expose so many lives to another wreckage? 

If we lost in the past, what makes us think we can win now? What makes us think we won’t end up losing again?

I know we must keep fighting until we get what we desperately need but is life of so many worth sacrificing for nothing?

All I do everyday is pray. Let God have His way and set the captive of the mighty free without battle.

Let there be no war.
