#wod #sea Too often we base our value on how someone is treating us, how successful we are, how perfect a life we’ve lived. The problem is that all those things can change. If you’re trying to get your value from how people treat you, then if they hurt or disappoint you, you’re going to feel devalued. If you’re basing your value upon your achievements—how much money you make, what type of car you drive, the title behind your name—then if something happens and you don’t have that position or your business goes down, your sense of value will go down.Your value should be based solely on the fact that you are a creation of the Most High Mistakes you’ve made don’t decrease your value. That’s what you did; that’s not who you are. You can buy a bigger house, drive a more luxurious car, and get the big promotion you’ve worked so hard for, but that doesn’t make you more valuable. God. The Creator of the universe breathed His life into you. How someone treats you doesn’t change your value. What they say about you or do to you doesn’t lessen who you are.My challenge is, don’t let people discount you. Don’t let your own thoughts push you down. Put your shoulders back. You belong to God. You don’t have to prove anything. You don’t have to try to impress people. Just be who you are. Be amazing. If you do this, I believe and declare every chain that’s held you back is being broken. You’re going to live free, confidently, and securely, knowing you are valuable. You will become the masterpiece that God created you to be. And this is true love. The world brims with sweet water. Dont let people 's saltiness enter your heart
The piece: Where there is love, there is no bargain there, The choice isn't yours, love is a mirror it simply reflects your essence everywhere, If only you had courage to look at it in the face without lowering your gaze to the floor. Why allow salty water to enter your heart when the world brims with the Sea of Sweetwater
How do you hold grief that is not yours? How do you dig out the darkness from the heart of those you love just so that you can see that child like smile on their face again? I know that you cannot know what another is feeling but what if you want to? What if you wish you could so that You knew how to hold them? Why is love not enough ? Why is it of so varied a language this grief ? When you advice me to just be there for someone who is walking without light in their heart how can I not feel the urge also to Pour a little oil and show a small matchstick to That spent lamp in their heart? How do you really be there for someone who is lost Within themselves? Can you really? How do you let them know That when they are sitting alone wondering if they really matter in this world and to this world , you sit there alone Wishing you could tell them that the world matters to you only because they exist in it? How do you tell them that you are not going to walk away when they show you the monsters lurking in the soul because you have a few within yours too that you are trying to tame ? How can one human love another human when one is in darkness and the other doesn't know how to lead them to light? How can you tell them that the darkness may not be beautiful like they state in some novels but that they are beautiful even with the darkness because the darkness isn't them ? How do you tell them that you are unable to translate the pain written on their bones but you really wish you knew how to clean it all up with your tears ? Why isn't empathy gifted to all of us? Do you think it is the mercy of pain that it remains constricted to one heart alone when it infects it? Or do you think it is because we have grown numb to The reality living inside another being? How do you pick up the person you love up from the ground and sew up their wounds without making them feel torn and in need of such help? How do you tell that sewing isn't a help you are offering but it is your responsibility because your heart beats in tune with theirs and when one is out of tune no music can be created ever again until both are healed and in tune? How do you actually really fully be there for the people you love when we know that we are each fighting our own battles? And how do you tell them you love them but you don't know how to make them love themselves ? How do you Show them how they Look from your eyes so that they may know that It isn't the darkness that you are seeing but The heart that is holding it with so much courage and so much silence ? How is it that while They allow you to hold their love , they are so afraid to Allow their grief too to be held by you ? And if it is that they cannot see you burdened with their darkness , why isn't there a way to Letting them know that the burden of not knowing how To be there for them when they need you The most is the Biggest burden to carry of all? Finally how do you Teach time To heal wounds that are not seen but felt? By both the ones who carry it and ones who Wished they knew how to heal it?
Tail rhyme, also called tailed rhyme, a verse form in which rhymed lines such as couplets or triplets are followed by a tail—a line of different (usually shorter) length that does not rhyme with the couplet or triplet.
*The first three lines in both the stanzas of my piece are triplets with syllables in an order of~10,12,10 & rhyme scheme a/a/a & b/b/b whereas the last line (i.e the tail) in both stanzas are a li'l short of 9 syllables each sans any rhyme.
Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Dutch post-impressionist painter who posthumously became one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of Modern art. He took up painting with almost no formal training. His landscapes, still-life's, portraits and sketches with their vibrant colors and subjective perspective would revolutionize how the world viewed art. He fought depression and mental illness while creating an intense and arresting universe of images. Van Gogh’s art became astoundingly popular after his death, especially in the late 20th century.
