"For unto thy minds shalt flow the streams of thoughts"
Learned it the hard way, and I thought I should share. Don't be a people pleaser, you're better off doing other things that won't drain you physically or mentally. Focus on your own goals, let others focus on theirs.•••••-- ©my_thoughts_exactly

Why has the void refilled?I know nothing of this space,Yet it feels like I've never left it,O let me out of this empty cage!Bring me freedom,Break the silence of captivity!What lies in this emptiness?Nothing but 'remnants' of my memories.©yolu_nuvocho

Word Prompt: Write a 3 word one-liner on Focus
• Dream-like focus •
"All the world's a stage!"Or so the line goesMany a foolish sage,Few to be prudent jesters,Topsy turvy! In this peaceful facade,Conventional wisdom bequeaths,A wreath of thorns, to one who seeksBountiful golds, masked by foolsTo be able to walk,You must tumble!If you wish to run,Endure a paced crawlBecause you see, my dear friend,The cosmos of wisdom hath long overdueGaze upon the pens and swordsThe era of truths, undone by wisdomA bloody pen, in King Midas' handHas naught worth weight in goldBut for Aristotle to write with swordsHe must carve integrity in blots of dull wordsBlind your visage, amongst the center stageYou'll see bloody pens, and ink blotting swordsThe truth should cleave, roots of the problemCarve out ignorance, or indoctrinate absurdity#paradox #wod@miraquill Thank you for the EC! ♥️
"Mighty is the hand that knows when to pick up the pen or the sword"? I say to that, "Might will never shed light upon the problem that would have us bloody with swords and eviscerate minds with our pens."©elibegario
Ever felt how life goes so harsh with you sometimes? But did you ever think that yesterday was a treat for you, paid by your dear life. We all know that each day isn't the same. Wait, don't let yourself break down by some silly stone of regrets. You could not make everyone around you happy, but you tried. Didn't you? What if you were never the reason of their miseries and you still blame yourself upon it. Maybe, they love you don't realise. Because for that, you should know the definition of 'loving yourself'. Ask yourself to teach it to you. Your special definition to it. Still thinking? About failures? Yes you failed. We all do. Tell me one thing, do you remember the first time you learnt riding your bicycle? Didn't you stumble on the speed breakers, or didn't you hurt you knees? But did you ever lose the ambition to learn how to ride? No. My mother used to warn me everyday to be a little careful, but she was the only one who pretended to be behind me while I ride and she secretly pushed me to ride alone. And I did. I fell again but this time she asked me to get up on my own, not with the help of her hand. Because she will not be with me, always. But my hands will never refrain from giving me a lift. Life is this. We fall but we usually forget that we rise too, even higher everytime. This time may not be good for you. I know you feel the whole world is against you but trust me, they're not. Trusting a stranger, sounds odd? Fine, trust yourself. Or, you too are a stranger to yourself?©firstlight

If you could program your night dreams, what would it be about?
Set A: I taste a liquor never brewedSet B: Gradually#combination
Yearning for something I never experienced.Wishing for somethingI never considered before.Mind full of fantasiesOnly searching to escape From the harsh reality.My heart gradually sinkingInto the black abyss Of daily routineNothing out of the ordinary.All my worries make meLong for freedom and leisure.When I was completely alone After a long, tiring dayI let my fancies take controlWanting somethingThat does not exist for me.That was the day thatI read a book never openedI traveled places never seenI sang a song never heard I taste a liquor never brewed.©ramen_queen
