Childhood lessons…

As kids,
We acted out things a lot,
Whether for fun,
Or to emphasis a point.

Remember whenever we were told a secret,
Or when we just needed to be quiet,
We would “Zip” our mouth,
“Lock it” at the side,
And “throw the key away”.

It honestly helped,
And it was taken so seriously.

Surely we’re not kids anymore,
However it truly would make a difference if people still knew how to just be quiet.

Even a second of silence can make a difference,
Whether it’s to listen to a point,
Or rethink whatever you’re planning to say.

Don’t forget your childhood lessons,
Yeah they were fun,
But now they could save you from a lot of trouble.


Are you in control?

There was a time when everything was so loud,

There wasn’t a moment of silence,

Even covering my ears was greatly unhelpful,

I remember times when it got out of hand,

I’d close my eyes and beg for some silence,

But again it would be a failed attempt.


I hated it!!


But now…

There are days when I don’t hear a single sound

It’s completely silent,

So peaceful and relaxing,

Yet sometimes boring,

And sometimes demotivating.


However I now know there are times when I need the sounds,

Not as loud and uncontrolled like before,

But moderate, calm and when needed.


Switched on,

To decode problems and figure out solutions,

To inspire and motivate,

And more importantly to understand myself.


Because it turns out these sounds were the jumbled voices inside my head,

No I’m not crazy… We all have them.

Just some are in control and others are stuck in a complete mess.


Relax, Breathe and Take control.

Make them the solution and not the problem.

Thank you ☺️

Writing posts and coming up with ideas isn’t as easy as it used to be. Even though there is a lot that can be said, typing them out has become difficult. Sitting alone in the complete Silence of the night, typing, backspacing,  and staring at an blank screen because things just don’t sound right. In the end I usually just put everything aside and fall asleep. Although tonight I’m forcing myself to stay up and create a piece to finally say this overdue thank you.

I can’t stand it. I’m surrounded by nothingness. It’s like the world has lost all its colour and all that remains is pure darkness. Not a single sound, except the silent ringing in my ears that’s deafening me.

I want to scream, but whenever I try, again there’s nothing. I’ve always been scared of the dark and now I can’t find any escape from it. I’m stuck and afraid, fearing and anticipating the uncertainty that lurkes somewhere within my dark surroundings. I outstretch my hands and pray for a switch, a light, but all I get is emptiness.

There’s  supposed to be a full moon tonight, but even that has somehow disappeared in the midst of all this blackness. I can’t take this any longer, it feels like the darkness is creeping in closer, slowly engulfing and taking over.

“Please make this stop!!” Even though there was no physical sounds to be heared, the silent echo chorused throughout my body, awakening parts of me I forgot existed. “I don’t have to be afraid…” eyes squeezed shut, slowly relaxing, it no longer felt like these were my own thoughts. Rather it felt like someone was talking and guiding me.. “You can find your way through the darkness, the light is right in front of your eyes, you just have to be willing to let yourself see it.”


“Open your eyes and look at what surrounds you, look at what you’ve let yourself miss out on.”

Again another silence.

“Don’t be afraid, just believe that there is light, imagine what you want your life to look like.”

Eyes shut I started to imagine lights, the full moon, the world like I had once saw it. “Open your eyes and maybe your thoughts may just become a reality.”

Reluctantly but slowly I opened my eyes there was darkness yet again, but this time accompanied with a faint blur of colour. I rub my eyes and try to mentally remove the darkness. I take another peak and there it was again.

The darkness of the night … Except it was being overpowered by the slight flashing brightness of lights and life. There from my bedroom window I finally saw a city, MY brightly lit city.

Looking up at the gleamingly beautiful full moon, I wondered how I ever let myself lose touch with all of this. I whispered to “Never let darkness blind me from my surrounding beauty or let it silently take control of my life. Darkness is no longer my fear but a strong indication for something breath-takingly beautiful to come.”
