Dealing With Pain Or Leading With Pain..?..
No blow is so big that it can't be gotten over.. No pain is so small that it doesn't teach us something..©shinyindeed

Of a Day in the Life
Each day is a new chapterIn the hefty tome of our livesEven a small piece of newsCan upset the schemes Perfected over yearsLike the roof ofA centuries old houseThat caves in one dayHaving witnessed years ofJoys and fortitudesCausing a maelstrom Of dust and debrisTo settle over all things Old and NewAnd invoke disbeliefThe dust settlesBut the walls stand tallAs silent proofsOf the layers of historyVisible on their visageAnd then a beam of sunlightKisses the floorThat hasn't seen the skyFor as long as it can remember The trees and sky beckon aboveLife like the centuries old houseFinds a reason To hold on a little longerBecause the ray of lightHad found its way through the cracks(c)trulyamazing

Why... because you've healed❤
Why do I still look out for your messagesWhy am I still open to having you as a part of my lifeWhy do I still smile with glee when I see you happyWhy do I feel like celebrating your success and achievements I could have looked back and marinated in the pain and injusticeI could have hated and blamed you and refused to healI could have chosen not to forgiveI could have wished for you to feel my painInsteadI learnt to dance with loss and pain - I've always done so, but the melody changed I learnt to embrace the feelings I never knew how to - anger, fear and shame dont scare me as much as they used toI learnt that love resides in me, in spite of pain and loss - just like the little roses in my garden that seem to blossom through all weather, there is an inner light that trickles through, lighting my own path and radiating for others I learnt that in a world that is not always kind, for me, love always trumps all - it is in caring for the wellbeing of others, that I've grown a deeper love and acceptance for myself❤©monette

The Rise of the Sun
I was born on the land of great rivers.I grew up between the roots of salvationDeep down protected from the rest of the world.The only light I could see was the dawn of the sun.The only book I could read was my father's words of wisdom.Wisdom that made me believe I was a warrior.But,Oh.Life proved me wrong.Taught and spit out from my forefathers tongue my hair grew andso did my thoughts.My mind wandered endlessly through the roots of salvation.Over the great rivers into the mountains.From the mountains to the horizon beyond my imagination.I never knew my imagination would take me on a journey of redemption.Crossing the grasslands of where I was born,Revolution and resistance filled my mind.Warrior I was turned me into man.Man that knew nothing of the dangers of the world.Father's words of wisdom flew west with the wind.But my mind threaded eastwhere the sun rose.©17musancwadi2003
ive stopped trying to fend off my depression,
its freeing knowing youre sad solely because of a mental illness,
and in ways i respect what dealing with depression has taught me; strength and resilience, and a refusal to quit, we both share that one©supasesh

Writing prompt: I am tired of being strong.
I do not belong yet I am one of them.All my life I've had to struggle.Struggle to fit in.Struggle to understand myself.I've had to fight for my right to exist.Each day has been a constant battle for my life.I've had to justify myself.Serve my life up for scrutiny to gain acceptance.I've had to build and create space. Burn bridges to be free.For all this I've had to be strong. I've had to be fearless like a lion. I've been hunted like prey. Forced to hide in the closet to stay alive and be treated as an equal. To be normal.For all this I've had to be strong. They say we are a resilient community because of it.I'm tired of being strong.Tired of living a half-life. Tired of lying. Tired of negotiating. When is it my turn to be free?I'm tired of being strong just so I can walk out the door.©queerchildzw

At times, you see the things you’ve missed out on and you crave the reassurance of being there. You could be in too many places at once, seeing every person and attending every event—but by far, the greatest challenge will always to be accepting and forgiving of yourself for not being able to be everything we dream of. There is always a time, a place, and a friendly face waiting behind some distant corner; all you must do is practice resiliency until the sandpaper rub of bad days shaves down the mold so you may grow into a newer, ever-evolving version of yourself. Mistakes teach us that recovery is possible. ©kaiotyk

I became so wrapped up in expectation and running forward that I forgot to look before I leapt.I stumbled, tripping over good intentions, and fell into a mess of my own creation.Brushing the mistakes off my knees, I stand up to begin again, because this time I know where to step. ©journeyhale
#mask, :#mirakee, #identity, #future, #life, #ambrosia, #illusion, #deceit, #concealment, #pride, #resilience, #safeguard, @writersnetwork,@writerstolli,@mirakee,@mirakeeworld,@writersbayHumans have to wear the Mask, And then can perform their duty and task. The Mask is the only protector for the time being,All should abide by the rules and wear this Mask for well-being.This mask casts a veil to the true identity,Hides our pain of suffocation and deprives from basic amenity.Eyes are the window to the soul,Mask creates a shadow and is a illusion to all. Masks,playing the double game, Of concealment of true selves and revealing of false frame. We are masked not to deceive,But to stop the entrance of corona virus and survive.Mask is being seen as burden and torture, But it is the tool of ambrosia to save our future. So let's all wear it with pride and resilience,And safeguard our world without any recreance.©sonu9914/05/2021

But seasons old come as life goes on.Generations before now begin to wane and show thru.Waxing sanguinely, like a rose's soft petalled hue. The blooming of such nervous energyis seen only in springs ball and chain.Hanging on from winter, locked up tight.But getting smaller, daily with each passing hours few.The colors of birth are bright synergy.Cascading on the canvas of lifeby its mascarade of innocence.Winter's crystalline suppressed brevityIs finally exhausted and left in memories.Bringing with it the blossoming of the new.©gwencanfield

Love Rose Out of Concrete
In the middle of the concreteWhere the rock guarded its hardestAgainst any life hoping to transcendBeyond the restricted gardensA tiny little crackFiner than a strand of threadBegan to form within the concreteWhere no light was allowed to shedThe crack grew thickerIt began to widen as a smileAnd the concrete started to rumbleAs defeat fumbled in the ending mileThe Earth quakedThe garden stirredAs something as grand as the day erupted in the darkA feat that was impossible to achieve (they said)Gained flame as a match strike would sparkOne day that crack broke openNot to where a passer would stareOnly enough to see a warrior emergingBeneath the burden which it bearIn the hour of that dayWhen life was fresh and newWhen the birds sang with gladnessWhen the grass was wet with dewA creation boldly formedThat could only be divinely designedStood remarkably glowing, in truthThere was a willCreation made a wayA rose grew out from concreteNo restraint of weight could make it stayWithin the soil of confusion, selfishness, even greedLikewise, love always finds its wayAnd blossoms the soul from which it seedsLove is the solutionLove takes care of all the restNo weapon formed against it will prosperIt will forever pass the testTimeless, endless, bottomlessIts power is like none otherIt is the holy ingredient that binds every man to his brotherLove is not illLove seeks to giveBe that it is instilledIn all human willTill the day when He comesWith crowns for every doerAnd this love is all that existsAnd eternal life is granted to its pursuerLove will always find a way, I sayLove is the only pathA rose grew out from concreteLove was the aftermath©soultee

What Do You Do?
What do you do when he doesn’t want you anymore, and he discards you like yesterday’s trash?
There’s no rhyme or reason for why you’re no longer good enough, there’s no “let’s talk about it” there is absolutely nothing.
What do you do when he was your everything? He was the honeymoon period that never ended until today.
He was your comfort blanket that you brought everywhere, because with him you were safe.
What do you do, when deep down you knew he was drifting away from you? The nights where you’re crying so hard you must muffle your mouth while he sleeps so soundly right beside you.
What do you do, when you have the same talks over and over again and the promise to do better never happens?
What do you do, when you know deep down that something isn’t right. You cling on to the hope that maybe you’re wrong, and maybe part of him is better than nothing.
What do you do when you’re left all alone, empty inside with nothing but questions?
What do you do?

Resilience is your personal power, your inner strength that allows you to rise above difficult circumstances, and bounce back stronger than before the challenge!©the_unknown_writer_20
Resilience is your personal power, your inner strength that allows you to rise above difficult circumstances, and bounce back stronger than before the challenge! With such vitality, nothing can bring you down, or de-stabilise you.©the_unknown_writer_20
And when she brokeShe gathered all the jagged piecesRetreated from everybodyfor their safetyAnd turned each shard aroundIn the quiet of her mind palace,Till she reconstructed herself againAnd sealed her resilience with a kiss. ©scintillatingsolitude03
