Unexpected Possibilities

An original poem for the hidden opportunities that present themselves. Live them out as you see fit!


Hey readers! I reflected a bit about possibilities and how unexpectedly they can come. When we place our energy elsewhere, there's the chance we aren't even paying as much attention to what is actually changing around us. This is not to say don't pay attention at all, but rather trust that the order of things will make sense in due time. With this in mind, I wrote this week's poem to inspire anticipation for the possibilities that await you. Stay focused and all will be revealed as it should be. Peace, everyone!

Waiting is hard, yet

Anticipation is harder

The rings of nervousness

Swirl around in my stomach

The sun seems much brighter

The clouds appear much bigger

It's all because of this feeling

That things are changing for the best

And that makes me nervous

'Is this a trick of some sort?'

The weight of this question toils away

Until I took a breath and released the tension

I do this to myself constantly,

Not accepting good things for what they are

Sometimes, that has proved effective

But right now, it isn't the time

For why should I not expect things to happen because they occur

When I least thought they would?

It's the way of the world

Possibilities are helping this feeling

Dwindle as I place my favor

Into seeking what this will bring me

I look up at the sky

Remembering how I felt

When I truly believed I would never

See the opportunities I sought after for so long

A tear forms in each eye because

I'm grateful for the unexpected chance

To make my aspirations come true

Dreaming and believing have lead

To this moment where I do trust

Where I can walk through that door

Into the endless gratitude of chances

I'm not talking about luck

But a real time to shine

I smiled and wiped the tears away

Today was another day

And the night would bring something new too

I waited again with anticipation

For what the stars would bring

That's the way of the world, it's true

But thanks to believing in unexpected possibilities,

I was ready to see it through

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.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
