Good Morning

At the crack of dawn on a normal day,

Beads of dew shine as the sun starts to light;

My cats awaken and begin to play,

Stopping to watch a flock of birds in flight;

The plants around them dancing slowly,

To the rhythm of the delicate breeze;

The furballs roam the field calmly,

Like dandelions wandering at ease.

The sky is filled with a vibrant orange

Decorated with fluffy balls of fur;

It has been that way for years without change

With the sun’s light clearing the nightly blur.

Time can cut you quickly like a sharp knife.

Rise early, to make the most out of life.

The Art of Shooting Yourself in the Foot

Debating is something I know I have the ability to do but refrain from doing so anyway due to several reasons. And when I say debating I mean the school debating competition scene or “parliamentary-style” debating.

To me, that sort of debating is not really practical. Granted, it does teach you about what debating is all about and its usefulness in life, but it also gives participants a watered-down version of the actual thing. This is because, as far as I’m concerned, no one would really limit themselves to three points-of-argument only and for a set amount of time. They would rather interrupt you with their thoughts at any given time and, if they have nothing else to do, bombard you with long-winded rants that may or may not be relevant to the original argument.

But, what I’m talking about today isn’t about what school debates teach you to do in life, it is about what school debates teach you not to do in life. More specifically, spewing out statements and arguments that are detrimental to your stance or credibility as a person.

To put it in layman terms: Shooting yourself in the foot Read More

A Cup..

A cup of coffee starts my day,

A pat on the head to my cat

Makes it purr.

A look-through the news today

 

Fills me with a cup of knowledge;

An overwhelming taste of despair, rage and death that

Has a hint of hope of life, joy and wonder

Of which is enough to fill me with determination.

One of positivity and optimism

To get me through the short harrowing 24 hours.

 

Weary and battered, I shuffle to bed,

Inching closer and closer to the soft comforting pillow.

A glass of hot cocoa helps to soothe my troubled head,

That keeps pondering about the mysteries of tomorrow.

Write It Your Way

The ability to simply let loose and speak our minds out silently is a luxury that writing gives us. We can create entire worlds with nothing more than a pen and paper (or in this case, computer).

Some write to express their thoughts and some write to liberate the suffering. Some write to help others and some write as a form of therapy, pouring out years of pain and strained emotions that would have otherwise been bottled up.

As for me, I write simply because I want to. There is no better feeling than to write whatever that comes to mind. No objective to focus on and no specific topic to discuss. Just writing.

As the new kid on the block, I’m pretty sure this is quite the mouthful for a first post. But hey, this is what blogging is about.

Have a nice day and write it your way.
