Unruffled Mind

Thoughts free from projections
Unevenness of surface not apparent
My mind is unruffled, similar to a calm sea

Life is free flowing, without bends, to some degree
Energy uninterrupted, strong flowing torrent
Conjuring uniform motion to some degree

Bringing about calmness, life is free
Of heavy feelings, at ground zero
A level of comfort, life simulator

You ease the pain with laughter
Washing away all the sorrows bringing hope
Erasing your doubt bringing answers

How much mental and physical effort was spent by chance?
To carry out your everyday tasks, to survive these random occurrence
Of our brain detouring from its original functions

Seems like a bad timing in world with no light, but 24/7 unction
Shedding what little light present on a seemingly lost reality
Representing a beacon of hope where there is none

Those living in the shadows has no reflection, shady, back turned to the sun
But not hidden, relaxed in bath of gloom, life filled with dimness
“To create a sense of shallow relief” are you a painter?

(We only want our life to be smooth
Enough to bring a feeling that is soothing
motivating worthy results from hard work
While living in the shadows is not necessarily dark)

About the poem: I used definitions of four words to compose this poem. started out as a personal prompt to get in the writing mood and it turned into this. I will be trying out this method again in the near future. You could give it too and see what great writing you can come up with. Happy Writing!!

Resist

Everyday Life testes my endurance, my determination

Can I withstand these trials, will I be on top? I want to give up

But I must resist! I must keep moving forward without hesitation

Warden myself against these temptations

Urge is strong, “Stop, why bother, Stop, you won’t make it”

Internal conflict, my lungs constrict

I must resist, I must.

 

Sometimes it seems the world neglects peace

Leaving her in isolation, alone in the dark, to be raise by the shadows

No one to love her, no one to feed her, no to tell her stories

Ignoring her plea to be of help but she resist negative, always seeking the positive

She resist the taunting of the darkness, rebellion against the teachings of the shadows

 Little did they know, she was the candle that lit the dark.

 

They tell you who you should be for their liking

Force their ideals on the masses, controlling

Tell us what is wrong or what is right, provoking

Keeping the truth to themselves, reshaping the world

They make rules, we follow, and they themselves break the rules

They give sentences, they judge recklessly, we have fallen victim to their schism

Eating out of the palm of their hands, aren’t you tired, aren’t you frustrated, aren’t you lost

Why not refuse? Why not live? Why not resist?

Rebel? Sleeping souls need an alarm, its pass night time.

 

 

Wear it for War Child, An Artistic Share

d_cQPEJR

We all know of war, whether via the media, someone you know lives in it, a soldier fighting for your country or you yourself was/is a victim. I have never experience but I have seen enough in the news to understand what it is like and what effects it will have on a person life, it is something any individual would want to live there life through, always looking over your shoulders, sleepless nights. War is not a new trend in the world, history speaks of many wars, deadly, small, those that might have shook the earth to the core and more to come in the future (I am sure you have seen the signs).

Some time ago Talenthouse  hosted a creative invite along with WarChild and O2 to create an artwork to inspire others to help in the online campaign of looking out for children affected by the existence of war.

O2 and War Child are inviting artists from around the world to create visual artwork that captures the campaign line ‘#WearItForWarChild’. Your visuals simply have to capture the imaginations of people and inspire them to take part in the online campaign #WearItForWarChild – they should be positive, uplifting and encourage people to take part in a great and worthy cause.”

The artwork you see above this, was my entry, though it didn’t get picked, I am grateful for being a part of this campaign, I had fun doing this pieces. As for a name for it, I have not given it one, I am bit rusty on giving my art a name, (Sometimes I wonder if I do have a child, if it will be same difficultly of finding a name).

If I should name it right now, I called it “Alone in war”, A fitting name?

I believe that if everyone lend a helping hand every now and again, the world would so much better off than it is right now but everything takes time, we can only hope and do what we can until we get there.

before I go rememebr this,  Patience is flexible, calmness solves problems, Love defeats hate, a smile turns a gray day colorful
