FAITH

I highly relate💯

Subliminal

I had Faith once, but logic got in the way of that.

Now I have lost Faith, and all the good things that come with.

Remember all the times I said logic gives you all the answers,

I lied. Lucidity gave me a sagacity of self-preservation.

But self-preservation comes with a cost.

Self-preservation made a choice for me,

and I put Faith at arm’s length. For a moment I felt safe.

Turns out rationality has cost me the whole enchilada.

Lucidity has cost me Faith, Hope, Love and Happiness.

Shrewdness for some time; Yes, stopped me from making some

bad verdicts, but this time Logic is costing me everything.

Logic kept me sane, from making the “measured” wrong choices

I scrupulously assumed Logic was the way to go, would keep me

in an orthodox state and that I wouldn’t have qualms.

This time, Remorse is knocking on my medulla

Just how long should you wait!

Realest thing I’ve read today!

Subliminal

We are now in that time of the year where you wake up at 6am
in the morning, you pull up your bedroom curtain and the rays
of the sun hit your face; you know that time of the year where
mornings come quicker and the night too; it is 6pm and the moon
is already informing you to retire from the days work.

This morning I heard something interesting on the radio, they
were talking about how long one should one be in a dating
relationship before getting to the real thing; like
getting serious and all that. One thing that got me though,
was a woman who said she would need at-least 5 years or more
to be able to learn about all the shit about this guy;
Now that is shit! wtf!! 5 years? I mean are you going through
high or elementary school!!

As it turns…

SINS OF THE WHISTLE BLOWER

Amazing piece!

angagafelix23

With the blood that is spilled, the stones that are thrown, the business that make losses, the tears that are shed makes me weak,cautious and afraid
Before my time comes let me show you what we have made of the future

I walk home from a day of losses and before me they stood
You could tell from their face and poses that the argument got heated up as one moved back, picked up a stone while other held a thick branch ready to unleash his wrath

I observed for a second then the name calling started, one threw the stone and missed another ran after him with the cane to strike him but I couldn’t let it happen
I bought two lollipops and suddenly they are friends again
As they stand 40 inches tall
But before this I wonder what could transpire for them to know that a stone…

War

👌👌

Cristian Mihai

“The one perfectly divine thing, the one glimpse of God’s paradise given on earth, is to fight a losing battle – and not lose it.”

Life is a war.

You have to fight to get what you want, you have to fight to become the person you want to be. You have to fight to put food on the table, to be fit, to accomplish goals, to take care of your body.

The hustle, as they say, never ends.

Of course, you might be inclined to use one of lfie’s many crutches: to have someone else take care of your needs, to dream of retirement, to dream of winning the lottery or reaching Heaven.

Those are lazy ways of thinking and going about life.

Here and now. That’s life. It’s not about tomorrow, for it has yet to come.

Life is what happens right here, right now. And life is…
