Yesterday I had the honour of hosting the very first book swap under The Literature Corner brand.
I got the chance to interact with like minded individuals for the first hour just to get the lay of the land and figure out who we had managed to trick into actually showing up for one of our events, yes pun intended.
The next hour was spent on some team building exercise where we tried to complete a crossword puzzle which by the end of it all, had everyone laughing like old friends.
In the last our we used it to bring out some friendly competition in all of us by splitting us up into teams of two in order to successfully complete a sudoku puzzle and I must confess that by the time the programme was at its end, the sudoku puzzle had gotten the best of all of us.
All in all I can say that I enjoyed myself especially at a time when things look very bleak in my world but I thank my God nonetheless.
Here is hoping that next month will be bigger and better with more fun activities and of course the special prize for figuring out that blasted sudoku puzzle.
Hopefully a month will be enough time to get our creative juices flowing.
So until next time, enjoy the pictures.
I’ve been drowning a lot lately, constantly aware of my deepest emotions.
Going numb is no longer an option for me but the thought is tempting.
The shots have already been fired, filled me with holes that I cannot run away from.
When will this all end?
Is it when the darkness takes over?
Or is it when the light breaks free?
But if things get too complicated I’ll remember to take it slow, take time for myself and regroup.
There is nothing quite like self preservation, it’s simple and sweet.
However when sleep eludes me I endulge in the very thing that is slowly killing me.
For I am now constantly aware of my own mortality.
It gives me a unique perspective, like I know something everyone else seems to overlook.
My own little secret.
But this too shall pass, just like everything else before.
The light shall beckon me and I will be whole once again.
Not right now but some time in the future when everything is alright with the world and I can truly smile again.
That is what I think of when I am drowning.
Events of the past few days have had me thinking, thinking of what could have been and what could be.
Funny enough I smile when I think of all these things.
Worry escapes me because I’m that focused on my goals and the devil does try but my God is my everything.
I’ve been so hungry yet content at the same time, these must be signs of maturity but then again is it wrong for me to want to stay young at heart forever?
Gone are the days of simply day dreaming, it is now time for self actualisation.
Oh how I long for lazy Sunday mornings spent in bed reminiscing you.
Those days are gone sadly, replaced with hard work and determination.
God I pray that I reach my goals with you forever by my side.
Long lost friends I think of you from time to time but the thought disappears just as quickly as it comes to mind.
I still wish you love and happiness just not in my immediate vicinity because the wounds will forever be still fresh.
With that I end my rant hoping that I have inspired at least one life so that I can die in peace when the time comes.
It is my soul that writes it all, I am simply the vessel it chose.❤
I’ve been home for far too long that I need the space.
Feeling constantly suffocated by the familiarity of it all.
Oh how I long for an adventurous lifestyle.
When did the fire die out?
It don’t seem to remember.
Maybe it’s because I also have become way too comfortable.
Oh how I mourn for the rebellious spirit inside me.
She wants to let out and set free.
Roaming the world without a care in the world.
It feels like forever since I’ve written my thoughts.
Oh how happy I am that I can finally express myself.
Words seem to bare the front of my conflicted soul.
When will the turmoil end?
Hopefully some time soon so that I can smile again.
I’ve been thinking of my future a lot these days.
It must surely mean that big things are coming my way.
I just hope that it won’t be too lonely a road.
Sometimes even I get tired of being home alone.

Oh so where do I begin, I have surely held you hostage for much too long with my feelings towards you,
Kept you from being free to explore the world on your own accord but no longer,
No longer will I hold you back,
No longer will I stop you from finding your own happiness,
No longer will I manipulate you to boost my own ego,
No longer will I pull the strings from behind the curtain,
No longer will I be there for you to push my buttons,
No longer will I pull you down a peg just cause,
Letting go is sometimes harder than it looks,
But when self realisation hits, what else is there for me to do but let go,
I could say that I surely enjoyed my time with you,
Formed a bond so strange that it gave me a temporary escape from my own daily turmoil,
Thank you for the new memories but you are no longer my hostage, I set you free.
I find myself stagnant, unable to move
Not that I don’t want to move but my current predicament won’t let me
I usually get frustrated at this point but not this time
I feel as though I have been through too much to suddenly wither away into nothingness
Life was never meant to be roses and butterflies
That would be way to boring for me and boy do I live for the adventures of life
But don’t just take my word for it
Challenge yourself like never before and watch the beautiful events unfold before your very eyes
Live only to improve on yourself and never be the same person as yesterday but instead, be a better version of yourself everyday
