" Choicelessness .............."

~ Choicelessness ~

All men and women are born,
live suffer and die;
what distinguishes us one from another is our dreams,
whether they be dreams about worldly or unworldly things,
and what we do to make them come about...

We do not choose to be born.
We do not choose our parents.
We do not choose our historical epoch,

the country of our birth,

or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing.

We do not, most of us,
choose to die;

nor do we choose the time
and conditions of our death.

But within this realm of choicelessness,
we do choose how we live.

" I saw the river..........."

~ I saw the river ~

And I saw the river
over which every soul
must pass
to reach the kingdom
of heaven
and the name of that river
was suffering:

and I saw a boat
which carries souls
across the river
and the name of that boat
was love.

"Why God Gave Us Friends.................. "

~ Why God Gave Us Friends ~

God knew that everyone needs Companionship and cheer,
He knew that people need someone
Whose thoughts are always near.

He knew they need someone kind
To lend a helping hand.
Someone to gladly take the time

To care and understand.

God knew that we all need someone
To share each happy day,
To be a source of courage
When troubles come our way.

Someone to be true to us,
Whether near or far apart.
Someone whose love
we'll always
Hold and treasure in our hearts.

That's why god gave us friends

" Drop A Pebble In The Water..............."

~ Drop A Pebble In The Water ~

Drop a pebble in the water: just a splash, and it is gone;
But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on,
Spreading, spreading from the center, flowing on out to the sea.
And there is no way of telling where the end is going to be.

Drop a pebble in the water: in a minute you forget,
But there's little waves a-flowing, and there's ripples circling yet,
And those little waves a-flowing to a great big wave have grown;
You've disturbed a mighty river just by dropping in a stone.

Drop an unkind word, or careless: in a minute it is gone;
But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on.
They keep spreading, spreading, spreading from the center as they go,
And there is no way to stop them, once you've started them to flow.

Drop an unkind word, or careless: in a minute you forget;
But there's little waves a-flowing, and there's ripples circling yet,
And perhaps in some sad heart a mighty wave of tears you've stirred,
And disturbed a life was happy ere you dropped that unkind word.

Drop a word of cheer and kindness: just a flash and it is gone;
But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on,
Bearing hope and joy and comfort on each splashing, dashing wave
Till you wouldn't believe the volume of the one kind word you gave.

Drop a word of cheer and kindness: in a minute you forget;
But there's gladness still a-swelling, and there's joy acircling yet,
And you've rolled a wave of comfort whose sweet music can be heard
Over miles and miles of water just by dropping one kind word.

" I'm Tired................"

~ I’m tired ~

I’m tired of being misunderstood,
nerves are shot,
weak – like old wood.

I'm tired for being a fool
confuse, lies
losing my nerves

I’m tired of being ill,
no energy, can’t think,
losing my skills.

I’m tired of so-called friends,
stabbing me in the back,
again and again.

I’m tired of trying to make things right,
I give up – I surrender,
no will to fight.

I’m tired of being in pain,
raises frustration,
drives me insane.

I’m tired of not being able to cry,
I’d melt away,
nothing left inside.

I’m tired because I can’t feel,
walking in a daze – numb
this can’t be real.

I’m tired of being “strong, ”
I’m weak, i’m fragile,
its gone on way to long.

I don’t know what else to say,
I’m hoping,
I’m dreaming,
I’m begging,
I’m pleading,

please, take this feeling away.

Right now… I’m just tired…

" Women Are Beautiful................."

~ Women Are Beautiful~

They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
And laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up for injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without new shoes so their children can have them.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a new marriage.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They have sorrow at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world spin!

Women do more than just give birth.
They bring joy and hope.
They give compassion and ideals.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have a lot to say and a lot to give.

I'm proud to be a woman !

" Friendship vs. Love..........."

~ Friendship vs. Love ~

Friendship is a quiet walk in the park with the one you trust
Love is when you feel like you are the only two around

Friendship is when they gaze into your eyes and you know they care
Love is when they gaze into your eyes and it warms your heart

Friendship is being close even when you are far apart
Love is when you can still feel their hand on your heart when they are not near

Friendship is hoping that they experience the very best
Love is when you bring them the very best

Friendship occupies your mind
Love occupies your soul

Friendship is knowing that you will always try to be there when in need
Love is when you will give up everything to be at their side

Friendship is a warm smile in the winter
Love is a warming touch that sends a pulse through your heart

Love is a beautiful smile to which nothing compares
A tender laugh, which opens your heart
A single touch that melts away your fears
A smell that reminds you of the tenderness of heaven
A voice that reminds you of the innocence of youth

Friendship can survive without love
Love cannot live without friendship

" Shadows to Sunshine..................."

~ Shadows to Sunshine ~

Sometimes life is so hard
And all hope's out of view,
And you just feeling like giving up
But there's someone there for you

Through the shadows and the mist
Our God is always there,
He will lead you into sunshine
With tender loving care

So when the trials are too steep
God wants to let you know,
That this darkness soon will pass
And there is not too far to go

But if things do take a turn
As sometimes they often do,
Just fix your eyes on God above
He's going to get you through

" I Wish I Could................"

~ I Wish I Could ~

I wish I could be
the face you see
when you close your eyes and sleep

I wish I were the photo in your frame
and that my name
was the song you'd always sing

I wish I had the shoulder
you'd cry on
when things don't go your way

I wish I could tell you
how I'm feeling
well, maybe some day

I wish I could be
the one you'd run to
when your life won't treat you right

I wish I could be
the one you'd want to
be with for the rest of your life

I wish that I could
hold you close
be the one you need the most

I wish I could
I wish I could
I wish I could be with you

I wish you would
wrap your arms around me
whisper 'how ya doin?'
in my ear

these nights get lonely
how I wish that you were here

I wish that I could
hold your hand
try to make you understand

That meetin' you
turned my life around
I never knew what I'd found
'til now

I wish I was a chapter
in your life story
the one without an end
livin' happily ever after
wanna be your closest friend

Wanna love that's true
wish I meant to you
what you mean to me

I wish I could be
what's on your mind
when all you do is smile

I wish you'd call me
all the time
number 1
on your speed dial

I wish that we could dance the night away
under moonlight

I wish I may
I wish I might
some day
if just for one day

I wish I could
I wish I could
Be with you

" Believing in You..........."

Believe in Yourself Pictures, Images and Photos

~ Believing in You ~

Never stop believing in yourself.
When others doubt, don't you.
Do what you love to do,
No one knows better than you.

Life is too short to live others' dreams
Follow your own dream
Push yourself to reach your goals
And live the life you once dreamed.

Trust your instincts.
Be true to yourself.
You know what is right for you.
Never give up or give in.

Forget the words "I don't know how".
You can learn,
You can search,
You can do.

Your mind is powerful.
When you believe you can.
You will find a way
You won't waste a day.

Persist and persevere
Do not fear
Because if you believe in you
You will find dreams can come true.

May all your dreams turn into goals,
Believe in yourself.
And remember, all of life is a choice.
The decision is up to you.

Believe in Yourself, Dare To Be Whatever You Want To Be!

" Heart Within................"

~ Heart Within ~

How the heart does long, for what is so far from it's grasp.
Without reserve leading farther down this path.

I want to show my heart what dangers mark our way.
I beg my heart to rest in the shadows…
please, please let me stay.

My mind argues valiantly, offering scars of days gone past.
My eyes weep with pains that will forever last.

Oh, to the heart that will not stop.
To the heart that knows not what it ask.
Oh, to the heart that grows each day.
To the heart that knows no other way.

Blindly it races, unaware of the fall it just took.
Believing fairytales are not only found in books.

From down on my knees I have picked it up,
pieces broken, shattered and torn.
A heart that is so tattered; fit not to be worn.

A sigh of surrender, I know that I have lost.
My heart has found reason to love and it knows no cost.

Oh, to the heart that, that has no regrets.
To the heart that knows no doubt.
Oh, to the heart that knows how to soar.
To the heart that drifts no more.

" Doubts..............."

~ Doubts ~

Don’t know which way to go…

…which life to live
…which desire to satisfy
…which song to sing
…which path to walk on
…which gesture to show
…which person to trust
…what words to say
…what dreams to dream
…which aim to fulfill
…which people to love
…which footsteps to follow
…what example to set
…which feelings to express.

With so many doubts in my life,
Don’t know how to start a hopeful life

Don’t know!

~ Silence Speaks ~

~ Silence Speaks ~

The silence of the night is broken
As you whisper softly in my ears
Are you really there
Or is it just that silence speaks
I open my eyes as i hear those whispers again
Those words full of love you gently used to whisper
Now that you are gone away
I know, it's silence that speaks

The soft cool wind blows
Making sounds never heard before
I feel you are close to me once again
So close as if you were always there
I can feel the gentle touch of your quivering lips
As the wind softly caresses my face
Telling me that you are around somewhere
Calling out your name

Is it just a dream
Or is it for real
I fail to understand
And the wind once again calls out your name
The breeze from the sea
Moistens the memories of us when we were together
When no-one else but the two of us mattered
When the silence would gently speak

The world seemed to belong to me
And all around there was joy and happiness
Today, when you are not here
I miss the feelings ,
I miss the touch of your hand
You used to say, "My sweet darling "
But, then you left me alone
Alone to hear and feel the pain
Alone to hear the murmuring silence

I never ever thought you would leave
And it would turn out to be this way
But then again, you had to move on with your life
And not waste your life on love the whole day
The smile on your face would make my day
You know I used to say
All I have are memories of the past
And silence is what talks to me all day

They say if you love someone from your heart
They can never go away
Time and distance would not make any differnce
Love can bridge the gaps away
This hope is what has made me say
That I need you here in my life, in my heart... everyday
I have heard the voice of silence long enough
Now I want to hear you sweet voice everyday

I know you left because you had to
But now I need you more than ever before
Come back and make my world a better place
A place where only our voices can be heard
You have become my life now
And it's hard to be parted from you any more
Come and break the silence's voice that fills my life
Come for your voice is my life's only shore

" Oh ALLAH, I'm waiting for the call............."

~ Oh ALLAH, I'm waiting for the call ~

MJ's death gave a great impact on me
not because I'm his great fan !
as a human
with mountains of sins
and death come calling
where I want to hide ?
where I want to go?
am I ready to face the Almighty?
Oh Yaa Rabb !
this is what I'm scared off

death come calling at any time
with warning that we never aware
whether we are ready or not
we got to go !
Yaa Rabb !............forgive me

it touched my soul
when everywhere
people talked bad things abt MJ
who are we ?
are we much better than him ?
free of sins ?
who are we to judge him ?

we are just human
just like him
do we know how he struggle to better himself ?
just like us !
struggling through life !

we too
keep doing the same mistakes
on and off

let us look within
rectify our own mistakes
seek forgiveness
be a good human
and let Allah do the rest

may Allah blessed his soul
let him rest in peace

from Allah we belong Him we return

" Dare To Be.................."

~ Dare To Be. ~

When a new day begins,
dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness,
dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice,
dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult,
dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down,
dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope,
dare to find some.

When you're feeling tired,
dare to keep going.

When times are tough,
dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you,
dare to love again.

When someone is hurting,
dare to help them heal.

When another is lost,
dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls,
dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another,
dare to make them smile.

When you feel great,
dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended,
dare to feel as you've done your best.

Dare to be the best you can -
At all times,

Dare to be!
