In response to the prompt Original
Greeting here and there,
Smiling to anyone, everywhere.
An everyday smile which reaches her ears,
Hidden beneath them is sorrow and tears.
Each day, each smile,
is just painted for a while,
Whenever there are “alone” times,
Try to listen and you will hear her cries.
She’s not perfect as what it seems,
There’s something missing that she feels.
Those joyful greetings and warm welcomes she give,
Are one of the biggest lies where she lives.
She’s afraid to be true to herself,
Cruelty of the world can broke her like a thief,
She can’t be original, she’s a fake.
A thought running on her mind which she’s trying to take.
Staring at the window,
looking for someone in the dark meadows.
Waiting for that person who can remove her mask,
Show them her true self beneath the mask.
Getting something that you really want is a good feeling am I right? It feels like you’re in heaven when you achieved your goal, when you bought the favorite shoes you want a long time but you know what? You may or may not know the existence of these people who uses their signature moves when it comes to getting what they want, it maybe the basic thing but to tell you,somehow it’s effective as what I’ve observed. Oops! I can say that I never done it until now, it’s up to you if you believe it or not.
The act of flattering a person or simply Flattery . I know that it is really a TREND today. But come to think of it, you say or compliment someone’s physical appearance or work not because you really want to but because you want to get something from that person. Somehow, it’s rude right?
It seems like your praising him or her because you will get something in return, what type of individual you are? Are you a thief? Another thing is that you’re lying to the person and to yourself. Why did people do this? Is it because they want to get what they want in a snap? Come to think of the people who perseveres and do everything just to reach their goal.They are the type of person who are mostly successful in everything they do because behind all the success, we all know that there are hardships and sacrifices. Look at the person who deceives an innocent individual, yes, they maybe successful but do you think this will last?
FLATTERY for others may not be a big deal but try to observe in your surroundings and see clearly what I mean. FLATTERY is deceiving not only the person but yourself.You can get something that you want but remember that you don’t even let a drip of sweat escape in your forehead.
Instead of doing this, why not try to be passionate and hardworking, it’s more rewarding right?
Everything we do, decisions we make have its pros and cons. The most common reason why a group of individuals, may it be your family or your friends get ruined is because of this, “SPEAKING WITHOUT THINKING” and “EXPRESSING WHILE IN A STRONG EMOTIONAL STATE”. We all know that right? As a person we should be responsible and aware of the words that will come out of our mouths. There are times when we suddenly say something which hurts other people without us knowing.
In today’s modern time, being the type of person who thinks before speaking is a must. Do you agree? Every word that we say may affect the future of an individual. Why am I saying this? It is because I’m one of the victims and products of a person who almost ruined my life because of a statement that I don’t really want to hear and which makes me lose confidence.
That sharp tongue should be disciplined well, so as the brain. There are instances when we say “I’m sorry I didn’t mean it. It’s just I’m in this situation..”, but come to think of it, not all that you want to express should be said or expressed immediately without knowing the person’s feelings. We should think or contextualize what would be the effect of the sentence or our opinion to a particular person.
Learn to think a number of times before uttering a word especially a promise to a person because when you say those words, there’s a small chance or maybe there’s no turning back. No matter how you try to fix or resolve everything or even reciprocate and cover what you said, believe me that words will remain to the person’s mind and heart especially the words which makes him/her happy and thankful; suffering and in sorrow.
Keep this in mind: BE CAREFUL OF EVERYTHING YOU SAY, BECAUSE THAT SINGLE STATEMENT OR WORD CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING IN A SNAP.
In response to the prompt Realize
It’s been a while since I’ve posted in this blog and I think it’s really a good timing since the prompt that is given really matched my mood and feeling today.
For the past few days, I’ve been trying to do my requirements for the upcoming finals for the first semester. I’ve listed all the things that I need to accomplish together with its due date. That’s when I realized that I need to maximize the time left for me to finish my requirements. It’s really hard for me to do since I’m not really the type of person who manage her time properly. There are moments in which I’m in the mood to finish everything then there’s the time when I don’t really have the energy to do certain things.
I NEED TO PREVENT PROCRASTINATION from happening! I need and want to finish this semester with a smile on my face and without disappointing those people who believed in my abilities. Despite of tons of paper works to do, all I need is TIME MANAGEMENT and being DILIGENT! THAT’S WHAT I’VE REALIZED FOR THE PAST WEEK.
Do you ever felt incomplete or there is something unfinished in your life or routine? You think you are already done but there is something missing? I’ve felt it many times until now. It’s hard to figure out what unfinished business I forgot to accomplish or what is the lost piece of a day for me.
I almost drain my mind because of thinking but unfortunately it ended with nothing. Maybe there is some school requirement that I forgot to do, some materials that I need and I want to buy or just something that I want to achieve which is not being reached as of this moment.
This kind of awareness bothers me a lot. There are times when I just sit on the couch or lie on my bed thinking about a thing which is I don’t know.
Those feelings were replaced when I finished a certain task or I’ve achieved enough of what I wanted to. Unfinished matters affects a person’s life, her way of living, interaction to other people and also it affects the sleeping habit of a person. Trust me it happens to me each time I’m feeling incomplete or there is something that should be done which I neglected.
In response to today’s prompt, Pretend
When you walked in to my life,
I thought the you’re one of those who will bring me light,
It’s sad to say that all of that were just hopes,
leaving my heart a deep dark hole.
Where are you my friend,
when are you, when I need a hand,
which will take me away from this darkness of being alone and sad,
saying that I’ll give you a helping hand, until the end.
Why did you pretend?
That you’re good to me and you want me to be your friend?
What did I do wrong,
for you to make me a fool for that long?
You’re true self is hidden in the shadows,
Like a monster waiting for a prey to open their heart’s window.
In which I can use as a warning,
Not to trust easily to a person who faced you smiling.
Panic? This is a single word but has a really huge effect to people. Every time there is something not good, the common thing that we hear is “Don’t Panic.” Obviously, panic doesn’t do anything good to anyone. Maybe there are only times but, believe me it doesn’t give a positive outcome.
Panic causes so much stress especially when you’re a student and you have a school requirement which should be submitted the following day or on that particular day you and you just remembered it. Of course, you’ll go rushing to finish it and then you will absolutely freak out. The advice that I can give not just on students but to other people is that when in a rush just keep calm even though I know it’s really hard especially in that situation but it motivates you and gives you a focus on what you are about or supposed to do. Avoiding being in a panic or freaking out can help you achieve the result you but if not almost a half percent of it.
People nowadays are almost getting too much of everything when other people lack of it. Material things is not just the object which is being overused or getting abused. Little did we know that we also misuse the generosity people gives us. Being a generous person is not wrong, it’s a good attitude to possess because if you have that kind of attitude, there is a possibility that you’ll gain a lot of friends or acquaintance. The problem is that don’t be too much generous as some people tends to be depended on you.
Let’s face it. It’s reality. You give them too much, they’ll abuse what you’re doing to them and when the time comes that you yourself need a helping hand in a bad situation, only a few of those people you helped would come to rescue you and help you.
The only thing that you can do is to be an observer. There’s nothing wrong in trusting people, giving them a helping hand in terms of needs and treating them like a family but don’t forget yourself. I’m not stating that you should be selfish but at least think of the consequences that may happen. Being GENEROUS is good but too much can be LETHAL.
