My actions,
Were nothing more,
than kindness.

Nothing ,
In return.
Is what,
I expected.

So, please.
Do not come
to seek me.

For,
I am kindness.
Who,
does not want,
to be searched.
Nor found.
Like a cancer I cling to you when I should turn away,
Darkness please don't fill this space,
Sorrow, please delay.

An incessent yearning leaking onto my ideas, the colour of dismay,
Suicide, be gone from mind,
Please creation, not decay.


The memory of you, a wound untreated, a jewel I locked away,
Me, a safe for your callous act,
Please, don't you dare stay.


Your company, Vincent's night robbed of stars in the cruelest way,
Myself, a ***** amongst kings,
At least, that's what you would say.


Knowing better and feeling worse, duality in the doorway,
A love you have dispassionately marred,
No more prophetic ray.


The clouds are clearing, no thanks to you and your own ego's way,
Light, within me to be found,
And this is my new day!

THANK YOU ... HURT ... ?!?

I Guess It Does ... ?
That's Why ... " These Girls " ...
Aren't Finding .................................................................­........ Love ........ !!!

It's Simple ...
Just ... OPEN Your Mouth ... !!!

You Do It When ...
You Go ... " Down South " ... !!!

Now Girls ... DON'T START ...

You shoved with your own bare hand
You shoved your hopes in the mouth of the lion
The grin of clouds above your head
You were rough, unchiseled diamond

You planted your own bare feet
You planted them fearlessly in the mud
Twas where the good and evil meet
Where some shed tears and others blood

You raise your hands towards the skies
You want a change that lights your mind
You pray too loud to shed the lies
And felt the rain 'twas warm and kind

I met a stranger today
whilst picking up a quick lunch
helped me carried my parcels
what a nice gesture, I thought

Reluctantly gave him my number
he nervously asked, "When can I see you again?"
left me speechless, really
he must be at least ten years younger

As the day went on
a few calls
a few texts
and boom

He thinks I am lovely
and loved my pretty blue nails
All I can do is hope
tomorrow, he makes me smile again
Eloisa Sep 23
I earned your contempt just
because I did not march to your music.
You sentenced me to hell
because I did not sing with you.
You even questioned my social philosophy
and even my religious conviction.
I will not ever return the hate and the contempt.
But however many holy words you speak, read, write and believe; it is useless unless you value human service and kindness.

To teach, to help a stray animal, to smile and assist a stranger, to work for your family, to plant trees, to give to the needy—these activities do not need explanation about theology.
Every one of these just needs anyone of us,
as humans—to reach out, to give a lending hand,
to care and to believe in the existence of faith and humanity.

I had mistakes, wrong choices, troubles, failures, losses and fears in the past that taught me lessons and flared my passion
to seek spiritual guidance.
I went astray but I listened to my inner voice that helped me back on track.
I’d still probably be in the darkness had I not known how to cultivate my emotional side.
The guides, the path, the doors
will be different for all of us.
But a lot of our spiritual encounters happen in the ordinariness of our daily life.

My spiritual moments have not just happened when I closed my eyes.
They happened when I cuddled my kindergarten students in school and when I watched the water flows in the river
and the birds sing.
They continue to happen when I do long distance parenting and do  
my duty as a mother,
when I smile and greet my neighbors
and even when I admire colors everywhere.

The world has many colors my dear,
beautiful colors and I have the profoundest respect to even the bleakest and the lightless.
Let us be inspired by the plants who come together and thrive peacefully in a garden.
Let’s see beyond our beliefs and differences and embrace each other’s colors and uniqueness to add beauty to our existence.
My friend, the way we give the gifts of faith, humanity, kindness, friendship and love to the people around us is how we save the world.
This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
Dalai Lama

It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui.
Helen Keller
