Anticipating prosperity

Anticipating prosperity

Sometimes you feel as if life is just too hard,
When you fall, you get up, and you fall again,
Your feet hurt badly, and you fall apart,
You want to run further, but you just can’t,

Been running from your problems and pain,
You are desperate and you don’t know what to do,
A prayer, because misery runs through your veins,
But your prayers are left unanswered, your screwed,

Defeated and left for dead in the dark,
You are exhausted, and you are crying out loud,
Because nor God or the Heavens are giving a spark,
And it seems impossible to finally get out,

Get out of that dark and frightning hole,
But my dearest dear, theres a light you see,
Just dig deep, dig deep, into your soul,
Because, it’s not up to the help from Thee,

This time, on your own, you’ll find the light,
Just take steps forward and keep in motion,
Prepare yourself for the biggest fight,
Cause all of this is about a certain notion,

Don’t expect help from the Heavens above,
Its about putting in the effort yourself my dear,
Do everything with all you have, and with love,
And don’t forget to conquer your fears,

When you actively take matters in your own hands,
And you keep taking these steps forward,
When you finally decide to be taking a stand,
Your efforts will be soon rewarded,

God and the Heavens, they are still,
They want you to help yourself this time,
They just want you to show some goodwill,
And with this, they teach you how to climb,

Out of the darkness, back in to life,
Leaving behind whats dragging you back,
The believe that you need help from outside,
To leave behind that heavy sack,

So get up again and try once more,
Believing that you yourself have the strength,
To keep climbing though your feet are sore,
To reach the light and the very end,

And when you are finally totally up there,
You have no one but yourself to thank,
It’ll be raining blossom everywhere,
Because you yourself have done your best,

Maybe after all, you’ll feel some gratitude,
To God and the Heavens for coming this far,
For teaching you this powerful attitude,
And showing you how strong you are…

Thrive in uniqueness

Thrive in Uniqueness

Would you agree, being exclusive and different,
Special and unique in your own beautiful ways,
With your own gifts, dreams, and preferences,
Is the right way for your soul to stray,

Away from being stereotyped and plain,
I feel we should embrace being rare,
And trying to better ourselves every day,
Love more and give more, if we dare,

I feel it is about being your own true self,
And about friendliness, love and positivity,
About becoming the best version of yourself,
Striving for progress and productivity,

Making decisions from your heart and soul,
Being the change you want to see in this world,
Pain and negativity, forget about it all,
And keeping your promises for what it’s worth,

Planting little seeds for a better future,
Making sure these seeds are lovingly watered,
Do it yourself, staying humble and pure,
And don’t rely on help from others,

You, just you, in your own unique ways,
Can go from zero to hundred if you want,
You just have to put in some effort and play,
It smart, as succes is really right in front…

Become the best version of you

Become the best version of you

“If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree,
It will live its whole life believing that it is stupid”
This famous quote from Einstein is key,
As it encourages you to live your life lucid,

Fully aware of being one of a kind,
And in full control of your own fate,
By chasing the dreams you have in mind,
And achieving goals before it’s too late,

This qoute compells you not to compare
Yourself with others and common standards,
To realize your potential with love and care
As competing with others may leave you dandered,

Never forget who and what your are,
Don’t let the greatness and succes of others,
Discourage you for not coming as far,
And bring you down, or would you rather…

Complain about what you cannot do,
Instead of focussing on what you can?
This way, you wont make it through,
You have to show a little strength,

Discover your own gifts, and talents,
They are hidden within and really dormant,
When you find them, try to stay in balance
Keep in motion and take steps forward,

At last, listen to the voice of your soul,
In the mean time try to be clever and smart,
Always remember that you are in control,
And don’t forget to let the heart do it’s part…

Pretty Ugly

This next poem by Abdullah Shoaib can be read two ways. First read from top to bottom, then from bottom to top. It’s brilliant.

Pretty Ugly

I’m very ugly
So don’t try to convince me that
I am a very beautiful person
Because at the end of the day
I hate myself in every single way
And I’m not going to lie to myself by saying
There is beauty inside of me that matters
So rest assured I will remind myself
That I am a worthless, terrible person
And nothing you say will make me believe
I still deserve love
Because no matter what
I am not good enough to be loved
And I am in no position to believe that
beauty does exist within me
Because whenever I look in the mirror I always think
Am I as ugly as people say?

Abdullah Shoaib

Love all there is

Love all there is

I feel, its about loving all there is,
Yourself, this earth and all it’s people,
Spread abundance, love, happiness and bliss,
From the depths of your authentic soul,

This world, this place, with all it’s treasures,
It’s so beautiful, stunning and magnificent,
Actually, it goes beyond any measures,
And the people it provides are all significant,

The people that roam this luminous earth,
We are all an amazing, fascinating collection
Every human being is of value and worth
Of a place on this planet, love and affection,

In life when you face certain people or things,
You may face harsh times and dire straits,
How you deal with this, will eventually bring,
You to determine and seal your own fate,

Cause you, yourself have a choice you see,
You can be loving, friendly, neutral or rude
Act on the negative or positive feels,
It’s all about your attitude,

I think good intentions are always rewarded,
Just like being forgiving and friendly,
Hatred, agression, they can’t be afforded,
So love all there is and do it gently,

When you decide to give someone love,
You are frankly being good and smart,
As being that gift from the heavens above,
Can heal and mend both of your hearts…
