Everyone’s Searching

 Everyone out there is searching for something or someone
A daughter searching for the father that left the home
A mother for the infant she abandoned or gave up on
She searches for him and he searches for her
Lovers from decades ago
 What have you been searching for today?
Did you search for something lost yesterday?
Are you searching for something new coming your way?
We are all searching for something or someone
Along the way
 She is searching through the memories she put in a box
He is searching for the box of memories he put away
Bittersweet memories of the past
Let’s hope their paths cross again
So they don’t search no more
A child searches for the mother that abandoned him
The adult searches for the child within her
A widow searches for the partner that left her behind
A wife searches for the husband that left her for another
They are all searching for someone
She is searching for hope and faith within her
He is searching for something more supreme above
She is searching for something more meaningful
He is searching for something more stable
Do they search in vain? I don’t know not
When you fail to find what you search for
Years of memories carved deep into your skin
We all age and die one day
Searching for someone or something all our lives
I pray that you find what you are searching for
Cos I still haven’t found what am looking for

Living in a bubble

Life has it is to many has its own ups and downs. Some have more strength to cope with pressures of life than some others. This does not make the former greater than the latter nor the latter more incapable than the former.

No two lives are the same and there is no ‘one solution’ which can resolve similar problems. Each one’s problem is unique, so must the solution be.

When others state that you are living in your bubble and not aware of the World outside, it may not be true, all the time. Sometimes, few of us choose to live in a bubble to safeguard ourselves from further harm and criticism.

Living in a bubble is not meant for everyone nor is it the best solution for all lifes problems. Some of us who are social butterflies when restricted to a bubble may not survive for too long. But then again, you may say it is by choice.

Not everyone has the choice of living in a bubble. You may succumb to situations and circumstances in life that directs you in to your bubble. It is a rather unpleasant forcible act which is beyond your liking or control.

To some of us, our bubble is are safe house, our cocoon. And no matter what the external factors say or think of us, we may not want to move out of our bubble until we feel its safe. But how would we know if it is safe at all?

Living in a bubble is a rather challenging. It may preserve us or it may destroy us. But who are we to know which is the best option. We must take a risk and see if it works out or not!

Like I said living in a bubble is not for everyone! Let the bubble you live in drift away to some place safe!

That Smile

Her smile was something he fell in love with

He said it was the smile that changed his life

Her smile which was genuine and warm

Put all his worries and cares far behind

That smile he’d say can melt the hardest of hearts

Her spirit was free and her heart so ever big

Perhaps so easy for someone like her to smile away

Even when everyone of us were falling apart

I wish I could have that kind of a spirit

To smile my cares away for good

I’d ask her to teach me to smile that way

I’d like to make that smile a part of mine

The Thorns

As it states in the parable of the sower, I’ve pondered a little further on the area where the seeds fell among the thorns.

The thorns depicts the anxiety, worries, cares, riches and pleasures of life. The seeds that fell among the thorns did take root and grow to a certain extent. Unlike the ones that fell by the way side or on the rocky ground, we know that these seeds did burst into life. young saplings. However, it could grow only for a certain time.

I suppose there are only 02 ways that such a plant could survive.

  1. The plant has to be strong enough to outgrow the thorns.
  2. The thorns should be removed by an external force.

I’d start with the latter, where it would be the easiest thing to do. Somehow the thorns should be removed or at least trimmed off by an external source. This would assist the plant to outgrow the thorns to a certain extent. Depending on the type of plant which would grow into a tree the thorns will become insignificant over time.

Looking at the first option, I find it hard to see how this could happen. The plant would require adequate personal space to grow, expand its branches etc. I’d like think that the thorns could be a blessing for a while where it may protect the sapling of strong winds and extreme weather. But then again, the thorns may prick and damage the young plant contributing to its slow death.

Looking at the options available by my limited human thinking capacity, I am led to believe this;

That if an external source does not contribute towards destroying the thorns or uprooting the plant from its current context and replanting the sapling, it would seem impossible for the young plant to survive among the thorns – ultimately leading it to death.

Time

Only a matter of time when her chains fall and she is set free

Only a matter of time until he realizes that she was chained for too long

Only a matter of time when they move on from the past to the future

Only time will tell – time can tell – Yes, time must tell!

Time was what got them busy chasing cars around their heads

Time was what made them have good memories time after time

Time was what made them simply regret of wasted time

Time was what made them think If I could turn back time

But it was also the one that made them say I’ve had the time of my life

How funny is time – it just goes round and round in circles

Its rhythm strange and alien to the human minds

Time is time and pointless chasing time!
