"....have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Selfie Saturdays #2

'Sometimes keeping things simple
is the most complicated thing 
that you will ever do 
only to realise the beauty
of it's simplicity in the end!'

Which also reminds me of the fact that:
'Everything is simple if you'd only let it be..!'

If only I had the answers...

Why is it that some scars simply refuse to heal?
Why is it that some memories return to haunt you over and over again?
Why is it that when you could once feel the pain, you can't feel it any longer?
Why is it that there is always someone around the corner to break your trust?
Why is it that death constantly feels like an easy way out?
Why is it that 'depression' fails to leave it's hinges?
Why is it that you give permission to people to hurt you one more time when they just did?
Why is it that when life just starts looking up you unconsciously shy away from it?
Why is it that you feel lonelier that the loneliest you have felt?

Here I am...

Here I am
Notice me
I can see you
But, can you?

I'll stay
As long as you want
Standing right here
Like always

I felt this back then
I think I feel it now
Not sure anymore
What this is?
How can I tell?

Selfie Saturdays #1

I've been thinking for awhile to make a list of all the 'A-HA' moments that hit me once in awhile. You know one of those times when you just realise something - whether it's about life, yourself, people around you, family, friendship, out of the box, crazy, funny, 'Oh hold on! This doesn't make any sense!' or 'You've gotta be kiddin' me!' liners. So finally I've come up with my 'Selfies' - Nope not the 'Look-at- me' pics taken by an extended arm kind but more of a 'This-is-what-i-think' liners of an extended mind kind!! I wanted to do it regularly so here I give u 'Selfie Saturdays'. Just stuff that I think is worth sharing rather than leaving it to be forgotten in my Random Access Memory..:)

So here's today's Selfie :

'Getting into photography is just like getting into a relationship - 
Exciting in the beginning, 
Confusing in the middle, 
Burn-out somewhere in between,
Passionate towards the end if it still gets you excited..
In the end you realise - The beginning will always be the best part of your story!'

I saw love and yet didn't
It was hiding behind my door
Crouching like a mouse
I didn't know what to do
But I took a step forward
Bent down a bit
And gave it a comforting look
It stared back still scared
What next I thought?
I fumbled, looking for the right words to pick on
See I didn't want to hurt it, even by chance
This was my first encounter with love
Never dreamt I'd run into it
In a state as such!
I reached out with my hand
Thought I'll help it stand upright 
Before anything was said and done
Love looked up with big, bold, beautiful eyes at me

You'll never know...

Never Know 
True love
Until it breaks 
Your Heart..

Never Know 
Real strength
Of character
Until it's
Tested infinitely..

Love someone...

Love someone, for love is real
Even if you have to stand and smile alone
Love someone, for who they are
Not what you hoped they would be
Love someone, inspite of love
You don't need a reason
Love someone, because you want to
Not to be loved back
Love someone, because you really do
Even if they don't
