Its Complicated

I understand you,
At least I think I do.
And that informs why I do somethings,
Its because I think you might like them.

Allow me my “lie”.
Even if you think I don’t understand you.
Because in my “lie” , I make effort.
Take away my reality and I loose my reason to try.

My “lie” is my reality.
It’s my hope for an awesome relationship.
Its my practice of knowing you
Its my trial at meeting your needs.

I know I know you.
You might think otherwise.
But you will read this and smile.
And that is how I know ,I know u.

Daily prescription; A psychiatrists view

For a sparkling personality and an ever beautiful day;
A teaspoon of pride,
A tablespoon of ego,
A pinch of narcissism,
A sprinkling of grandiose delusion.
Totally avoid servings of guilt and regret.
Don’t approach anhedonia and nihilism.
Stay away from the bottle labelled sadness and low mood.
Rather have about 5mls of mania and 2mls of eccentricity.
Avoid paranoia and antisocial prescriptions .
Have a healthy dose of optimism and motivation.
Don’t forget encouragement, a bottle a day will do.
You can also add a gallon of hope taken over the course of the day.
Carry tablets of healthy interaction and use as required.
And above all soak in a bathtub of love before leeaving the house and share that love with others.

***You are allowed an unlimited number of refills for this prescription.
Please consult your doctor before adjusting this prescription.

The certainties of life

There are a few things you can be certain about in this life ;

No matter how gloomy you are, the sun will rise every morning

No matter how long the day is, the night will always come.

The living can never have enough sleep, only the dead will.

No matter how tall you are, you can’t see the future.

Dark clouds will not always gather before a rainfall.

If you keep avoiding risks, you may remain in the same place forever.

The greatest treasure vault is the graveyard.

As long as there is summer and winter, sowing and reaping will never cease.

My truth will always be different from your truth.

Marriage will always be more than the ceremony that initiates it.

Hate will always give birth to sadness and frustration.

Anger, uncontrolled will always end badly.

Love is always worth fighting for.

The young shall grow and the old will always die.

No matter how far back you can stretch your hand, you can never change the past.

No matter how much you hide the truth, it will always be revealed in due time.


Before I met you….

Before I met you,

Life was dull and gloom,

Activities were dry and boring,

I existed but didn’t live.

That was before I met you.

Before I met you,

I was like drift wood,

I was like a boat without paddles,

I was going where the wind wanted.

Until I met you.

Before I met you,

I had a vacum I knew not how to fill,

I blissfully held out hope for tomorrow,

I desperately worked hard to forget yesterday

Until I met you.

Since I met you,

Life hasn’t been all laughs and giggles.

We have had our fair share of tantrums and punches

But you gave my life a new meaning.

Ever since I met you.

Since I met you,

I realized, the past will always be there.

That all I need , is to make my today greater,

And then my past will fade into oblivion.

Thats why I met you.

I have no regrets, I have no shame.

We found each other, When the world lost us.

And in finding each other, We have to lose ourselves,

So that together we will be one better being.

After we meet each other.

This is …….

To share in pain and in joy
To tell the truth no matter what
To see the eyes and not need the words
To shield from aches, as much as you can
This is love….
To love forever and hold for an eternity
To walk together on hot coals and hold hands at the beach
To absorb the bad and not seek revenge
To see always the beautiful even when all is ugly
This is marriage….
To give because you have, not because there is surplus
To remember the “have nots” and not spend recklessly
To build lives not just with money, but also with words
To secure somebody’s tomorrow not for reward.
This is generosity…..
To observe the setting sun and not be despondent
To count your coins and be short and yet not worry
To look again at your dreams and still be hopeful
To desire freedom and yet not move to loosen your bonds
This is expectation……
To examine your day and learn from your mistakes
To be happy even when it takes a while to find a reason to be
To influence positively every soul you meet
To allow daily interactions help shape your life
This is living….
To dream and wake up to plan
To see tomorrow in today
To labor today so you reap tomorrow
To do your best to escape mediocrity
This is vision…
To be afraid and yet move forward
To be cautious and not be paralyzed
To rise from the pit even when there is no helping hand
To strive to be better regardless of the accolades
This is courage…
