You did not get this far into your race just to give up here.
Go ahead and adjust the pace
until you’re comfortable.
Feel free to take a break or two,
there’s no time limit
for accomplishing your dreams.
Just make sure that when you’re able to,
you get back to running.
Sooner or later,
you’ll cross the finish line.
Monday 22nd May 2017
Today the world is united
We come together and
For the 24 injured in Bangkok
The 4 dead, 16 injured in Syria
The civilians terrorised in Marawi
The 22 dead, 60 injured in Manchester.
They call it a terrorist attack
But this is not an attack
This is a goddamn massacre
A nightmare that you don’t get to wake up from
We are a humanity consumed by dread
Our oxygen replace with fear
Because what do you do when no place is safe?
The world is burning
And there is nowhere to escape the flames
The 21st Century is a bloodbath
It is an ocean of tragedy
And none of us know how to swim
We are drowning in the blood of the innocent
Deafened by the cries of a population
Who are, too often, forced to count their dead
And tally their wounded
They say that good will always win
But if this is winning
Then I think I’d rather lose.
that never happens. Good morning my friends. I actually overslept a bit this morning, and didn’t have much time for Tumblring. Will try to catch up later, and with no further ado, here’s your Monday Quickie Poem.
No time to write very little to say save for I love you and have a nice day
Sorry to put you through the hoop
I was having soup
And you brought quiche
I shouldn’t have let you off the leash
And there is too much salad
That Spirallised veg is just a fad
And there’s Too much decision making going on over there
I wanted breakfast tea with hot water to spare
Why are we rushing
This important Discussion.
Yes the Weather is disappointing
And I’ll need to find where the toilet signs are pointing.
With Too much choice we don’t know what to do
We’ll settle for a pie of the day for two
I am so grateful for all the Tumblr love in follows, 💛’s, re-blogs and kind comments! Thank you! Especially the amazing poetry support sites who without your re-blogs I would be invisible. @writerscreed @purple-with-a-dash-of-pink@twcpoetry@poeticstories
Wishing you all a happy and peaceful day
Hey guys! Another day of being productive and studying! Today I am struggling to be disciplined enough to actually focus on my tasks for long enough since I am in the middle of my test week. Any tips on motivation?
Here you can see some of my Dutch literature notes I am revising since the test is on monday!
Writing some little poems has really helped me to relax, but I think for me it is also an excuse to procrastinate so maybe I should not spend too much time on it haha. Would you guys maybe want to see my (very bad and cliche) small poems?
I am Asherah, the Tree of Life
Let me embrace you in the shade of My outreached arms
I will protect you from the harsh damning heat of the midsummer sun
Come take refuge from the arid desert air in my cooling oasis
I make way for life in places deemed inviable
I am the strength that make your perilous journey a possibility
Let Me sooth your brow with My sweet waters
I am the peace found in the midst of the struggle for survival
I am Peace
I am Life.
Asherah, Tree of Life by The Rose Laden Magdalene
My palm is facing upwards,
I will take anything that you are willing to give
I take your smiles and those warm eyes
I take the seconds sighting of you
I take your words and encouragements
I take the minutes you spend to talk me
I take your laugh and your essence
I take the hours you were next to me
I would gladly take anything you would give
Because I have taken months of wondering,
And years of wishing
What is another day of waiting?
I will take you,
any piece of you,
that you are giving to me.
