Seeking Self and Change

An original poem to send strength in the search of self and change in the current state of the world. It all starts with us.

Seeking Self and Change

Hey readers. This week's poem flowed with little time at all. In this world, I feel it necessary to remember who we are, what we strive for, and keeping the goal of change in mind. Progress doesn't happen overnight, not within an individual nor in a society. However, please allow this piece to give you a zealous heart, mind, and soul. Change starts with how we look at ourselves and each other. Many blessings and peace to you.

In a moment, there is clarity

The mind wanders not again

On the things that caused so much confusion

A cloud appears in the blue skies,

All alone as if to signal hope

Where there is pause, do not equate it to

Lost progress

Stagnant dreams

Distant encouragement

Instead, close your eyes

Fill the space with your happiness



Pour into the atmosphere

Passion for more like molten lava

A cascade of true joy

That no one can own or take away

In these moments, there is purpose

The spirit moves forward once more

Recognizing the sadness of the past

But transforming it into glittering summer

A flower blooms in a field of grass

Singular in beauty against the backdrop,

Reminding you of possibility

To the chagrin of human nature,

You are limitless

Your aura is magic

Harvest within you beauty

Such as the flower in the space

Did it not fill it with being exactly what it was?

Do you not still see it and admire it even without any other buds around?


Indeed, just like the cloud

Like the flower

You are special

You are unique

You are valued

In a world where others compete,

You are the most special thing

Even without me seeing you face to face

I know it

So should you

An author's words may not seem

Personal at best

But, cloud


Be you

The world is so shattered

Take the hand of what you've been afraid of

Tears flow down my face

But I believe to change this world,

Can we not shine and be the light for someone else and be brave?

I've been saddened, worried, and anguished for too long

Let's fill the space with who we are

Forever and all

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
