    Take courage to stay humble....

    It occurs such that our inner love leads us to accept and own our flaws, indeed it's a rare and daring quality. But it could also make us feel better about ourselves, a sense of perfection in accepting our imperfections. So let not your egoistic self deceive you to believe you are better than them, just because you got the courage to acknowledge your truth. For verily humility is the best adornment of courage.

    The toughness and the softness
    The strom that you carry and the calmness
    Don't know if it is way too much or less
    All I can say is that I feel blessed

    I wonder what did I do to deserve you
    Everything feels like too good to be true
    Never thought that even dreams had shape
    Untill I met you babe

    The Fossil In Ice

    Such a calm late summer night.
    Air so still.
    As I sit and wait.
    On this dusty worn wooden stoop.
    Trepidation abounds knowing she soon will arrive and leap
    into in my arms.
    Creating a feeling so powerful,
    more beautiful than any
    dream I could create.

    I look into her eyes
    and she in mine.
    No words need be spoken.
    Our bodies tingle just at the
    mere sight of the other.
    Telling us what our heart has
    known since our first kiss.
    That Cupid's arrow, no matter
    what she and I try to tell
    ourselves, did not miss.

    But then, at the same moment,
    fear grips me so tight.
    Afraid she will be gone by the morning's light.

    A confluence of feelings
    surely hard to describe.
    So foreign to many.
    But causes one to become cold.
    Especially those that
    had safety when young.
    Not me; or her.
    We simply survived.
    Having to play "adult"
    to parents who were often
    insane or drunk to even care.
    Growing up too fast; leaving little laughter and a black hole in our soul.

    Yet I wait tonight on these
    wooden steps.
    Like a child on Christmas morning.
    Hoping, but still
    holding my breath.
    Seeing if reality matches
    the beautiful, caring words
    from her mouth.
    That she loves me; more
    so than any man before.
    Only God knows what is in store.

    I see her alight from her car.
    My breath truly taken away;
    perhaps for the first time in my life.
    I refuse to let my fears triumph this night.
    As I hold her tight.
    Looking into her soulful eyes.

    Capturing this moment in my mind.
    Like a fossil frozen in ice.
    To remind me during those times when past ghosts chose tocreep in.
    That she does truly care;
    not like those from yesteryear.

    The fossil in ice...

    I'd remind you of how courageous you are.

    Stand with courage

    Drowning in a room filled with static noise
    Finding it hard to stay balanced and stand with poise
    Telling myself that the shame they spew doesn't suit me
    Deciding to slam the door on all the lies indefinitely
    Rising to claim my power has at times been daunting
    Becoming my own hero through it all, tirelessly searching
    Committing to the promise I made
    To always without fail, hold my head up and be brave

    For these experiences, all, have taught me wisdom
    Especially the ones that threatened to keep me down, silent and disregarded in their broken systems
    Refusing to give in, give up or quit
    Seeing through it all by using laughter and instinctual wit
    I am more than the moments that locked my essence in trauma
    Using every ounce of pain, never forgetting my worth, moving away from the drama
    Choosing to keep fighting for every breath in each moment
    We are all deserving, go ahead now and stand with courage

    When I started sharing my writing publically almost 3 years ago, that was the moment my motto "Triumphing over Trauma" was born. Shining light into darkness, having the courage to be vulnerable by sharing my experience, strength and hope. We do heal, as long as we feel: Maria Teresa, Emotional Musings ��

    Triumphing over Trauma

    Inner whispers of mystery speak
    While leaning into feelings so deep
    Observing as they come and go
    Holding onto the belief that with time abundance will grow
    No need to feel shame or worry
    Rainbow aura keeps me shielded when intuition is blurry
    Instincts sharpened by experience, teaches me to carry on
    Passionate heart is the vehicle that drives me towards dawn
    When darkness threatens to shut out the Light
    Ranges of emotions are the waves I surf at night
    "Triumphing over Trauma" as my battle cry
    Accepting this truth becomes my only guide

    COURAGE can make the SMALLEST dream
    Endup Seemingly so big
    While
    FEAR can make the BIGGEST dream
    Endup Seemingly so small

    Everything in your life is okay
    It's just a matter of time,and it will pass
    But that's the time to prove your courage not to people around you but to yourself
    Because it's you what matters ❣️

    Calmness

    Grant me a wish, I'll follow your lead
    Show me the memories when you made me free
    Remind me of garden where careless I'd be Courage it took from darkness to flee
    Guide me to place, where vanished are brought
    There's still one battle left to be fought
    Paint my face in sharpness and steel
    No other pain is yours to feel
    Look at the horizon and others will see
    How brighter you shine by believing in me.

    What if we lived in a world with no limitations ,
    Where everyone believed all is possible,
    What if we already have that world ,in the pages
    Of every book,our mind runs wild like fire
    In our minds
    We jump from one rooftop to another,
    We have wings and we soar as high as we want to,
    We love unconditionally and we're loved
    We're the conquerors,
    We tread on the serpents
    We trample the vicious lions
    We overcome all obstacles.

    What if the pages became our reality.
    Maybe then we'll realize
    What we can imagine, can come to pass.

    Dear passersby

    The pages of my book,
    Fresh and intact.
    Never once even peeked at,
    Will you do the grand honor,
    And take me with you?

    Perhaps, I am the remedy
    To your heartache,
    When all else goes wrong,
    You can dive in my pages of
    Endless possibilities.

    Together we can paint the sky poppy red
    The amber rays of the sun, celadon
    The emerald trees, cameo pink.
    Because in the canvas of this book,
    Boundaries know no existence .

    Take me with you
    But be mindful of this.
    I am not for the faint-hearted.

    Amongst man

    She sat there, knees to her chest

    Crying her frustration to the world

    It had built in her for so long

    That she couldn't hide the seething tears

    From the air



    'Why do I have to deal with this?'

    She asks herself

    Knowing that she was alone with her woes

    Or so she thought

    But little did she know her whimpers had drawn someone near

    Who was also crying

    At the sight of the broken girl



    'Dear Lord, you told me to forgive them

    Yet all they've done is stab me again'

    She wails

    Tears clouding her vision as she asks God why she had this wretched feeling



    She knew she didn't belong there

    Unappreciated, unloved

    But she had nowhere else to go

    And no one who cared

    The feeling in her gut was close to exploding free

    And she was close to losing herself completely

    She didn't hear the steps as they approached

    Or even felt as the hand wrapped around her waist



    It wasn't until she felt their own hot tears that she looked up

    Ashamed but unabashed

    A truly broken human

    She didn't even try to hide the bruises or scars

    And he didn't even ask

    He knew why she had them

    He knew why she stayed



    'Its okay to feel weak in moments of darkness

    It's okay to cry

    Your scars are your badges showing the world

    You can make it through anything

    Because you've been through worse'



    He pulls her closer

    Crying with her until her wracking sobs slowed

    Down to whimpers

    'I don't know if I can do it'

    She whispers

    Voice so full of pain that it hurt even his own heart

    For he knew her pain and suffering



    'Its now about if you can do it

    Everyone says that to themselves

    It's about showing yourself that you won't let him win

    You won't let him break you

    For you are truly an angel

    Amongst man'

    COURAGE

    Everyone was surprised to see how I had molded myself in the color of courage,
    Just the tears imprisoned in my eyes were the witnesses,
    How I handled myself that day.

    Hope everyone value self courage to face trials in life. Not all have courage like you.
    In times of trials we only had our selves and no one is around us to rescue, except prayers for courage to ask God's guidance and grace.

    Let the wounds heal by the time.
    For those who are weak, including me
    Let's lift up ourselves together and pray.
    Don't let negative thoughts over powered your mind.
    Don't let anxiety kill you.
    Everything will heal.
    Everything will be fine.
    Let's accept the fact that "not all we want, we can get" though we all did is right and never be wrong.
    Life is precious, a gift, a treasure and a home.
    Let's live life simple with the guidance of our Almighty God ��
    It's FRIDAY��
    God blessed everyone♥️

    Rise

    Sometimes I wish I could retake that road
    Pull back on a mistake
    Even though I know the actions of my past define the future

    Sometimes I wish I could turn on the lights
    So I could see the mistakes before they came
    Even though I know I would make them again

    Sometimes I wish they could feel how sorry I am
    So that I can finally forgive myself
    Even though I know they never will

    The mistakes I made I wear like my scars
    Stories of past lives untold
    Simple things that ricochet through feelings
    Shattering even my own heart

    I'm not perfect but no one is
    We each shed the same color blood
    How is it there is favoritism
    When there was no favorite to begin with

    All these excuses I make to validate myself
    Are just excuses
    I don't need them
    But I do

    All of your anger I take
    I can be the reef protecting the shore from your angry winds
    For I will remain long after even you

    All of these lessons I learn
    Willing to get scarred again
    But courageous enough to walk through the flame
    For I know I'll rise
