Possibilties Never End

Indeed, the night is not over till the morning dawns,

Neither, the day complete till its ebbing moments set

And transform into the twilight that descends, and thence

The cycle ensues, for the darkness will yield yet again to light.

Therefore, the entirety of time, doth afford us, but many

Chances to maximize the full  potential of opportunities

That present, even if be, that they simply seem to offer

Just, the ability to recognize and embrace the gift of time,

And then within the scope of the continuous sequence, pledge

To decidedly employ its span to our enduring advantage.

Never Give Up!

Peace Elusive

Is lasting global peace an intangible imagination

Has it escaped from the grace of earnest promise.

Does it fall through outstretched hands as porous sand

And now assume the solitude of illusion’s barren frame.

Will children forever be ensnared by its anguish deep

And widows wear the sackcloth of ritual lamentation

Over the fatal disintegration of treasured family bonds,

While fatigued fathers curse the endurance of combat.

Will we constantly live with the presence and news of wars

Where the presence of tranquility simply disintegrates into

The strife of bombardment and the barrage of conflict, to

Eclipse the sincere hope of reassuring and lasting concord.

Will the chapters of existence, but only hence sadly recite, the

Steady accompaniment of tragedy and death with hostilities,

As the frequency of catastrophic battle adopts the constancy of time

That all then lie conquered under the flag of helpless surrender.

Has humanity failed in its obligation to avert this course

And will limb, life and blood line the paths to no escape

Where there is no refuge from the ghoulish nightmares

That torture the captive and the apparent free likewise.

Slumber not, ye responsibility of humanity, amid the carnage

Allowing battle’s transgression to perpetuate its will, till harmony

In capitulation hath no recourse, when all cataclysmic occurs

Living none to truly attend to the reconciliation of harmony.

Where is 2013?

Now that with expectancy we bid welcome to 2014

And resolve with determination to seek and embrace

Our portion of the bountiful promise amid this new year,

Let us not in hasty abandon cast into oblivion the passage of 2013.

For it, likewise came upon us as a new beginning of possibilities and hope.

And though, its moments have forever dissipated into the tunnel of existence.

Yet, within that past, that seems to fade deeply into the recesses of time

Truly elusive, lies unchanging the peaks and valleys of life’s previous course

Traversed within then concrete space, transforming into earned experience

To anchor our future paths with enriched knowledge and cultivated wisdom.

Thus as the new commences, forget ye not the instructive lessons of old

Rather, in its totality, let that year’s long journey, like others past, always

Guide future contemplation and choice towards the bounty embedded

Within the renewed cycle of prospects and horizons of the evolving year.

Thank you 2013.

Cherish The Times

Cherish each of the moments you live

And live to cherish the moments lived.

For it is but a short time given to all, within which

To embrace the gift in all its dimensions,

And make the best of the precious opportunity.

Rather than squander it in the hopelessness

Of despair and self-doubt, nay don ye the vest of

Steadfast courage and resolve undeterred to

Triumph and soar with the eternal winds of hope

Towards the promise of the fullness of life.

Therefore, my friend, minimize regret . . .

Love life, live free, be kind, and  live well.

Dreams Magnified

The span of life is not boundless . . .

Therefore, with all determination

Pursue your dreams, and resolve to climb

The mount Everest of your dreams.

Live Yours

We all have unique races to run.

Yea, we  may fairly emulate or even learn

From the wealth of exemplary attributes.

But envy not or attempt to become another,

For it is but a wasted venture, rather use

Laudable lessons to aid your singular pathways

And explore your potential to the fullest degree, to

Augment and compliment the dimension of your essence.

Cherish Living

Cherish the living of each moment, before it

Dissipates within the elements of life…

For time, like a mirage fast fades steadily,

Evaporating as vapours into the mystic

Sphere of existence, while yet transforming

Into the elusive and abides no longer tangible.

But, yet when reflections court nostalgia

Those moments assume the poignancy

Of the present past, although not physical

Sufficiently powerful to cause revival of

The previous emotions accompanying

Certain times past in their original form.

Thus, as that which is gone has not the ability to

Attain the perceptible nature of its bygone era,

While it is present, earnestly treasure its value, to

Aid, not only the nurturing of the present moments

But the stimulating nature of the past and hope of the future.

Change Confronted

Change is the steady pulse of human existence

For without  a doubt, it interjects itself

Unfailing into the course and scheme of life

Thus with the armour of this knowledge, be prepared

To confront the aspect of change should it appear

Even if its essence would take more time to conquer.

Be of good courage.

Diary of Enikan

So today, considering the accumulation of time translating into my age, I decided to sit and ponder about life… And figure out where next, and why. But then my contemplation, as would sometimes evolve from the best intentions, took a detour and centered squarely upon my youth and what my first recollection was. Probably that was where I was destined to explore, maybe it was not. Nonetheless, I found myself on that intriguing journey and embraced it. How early in life could I recall anything about my existence and what impact did the event have on the course and the next chapters of my journey. Oddly, as I ventured deep into this self-imposed exercise, to my elation, I was comforted by the retrospective view, not because all the unfolding scenes were of pleasant description but because the challenge forced me to inquire deep into the labyrinth of the mind and the recesses of time to interestingly extract from apparent conscious oblivion, that which was powerfully present once but now embedded in the past.

How time fades the past into the forgotten, only to be retrieved somewhat by deliberate measure. Undeterred, I continued down each nostalgic lane and was gratified that the fog of memory parted sufficiently to reveal the crossroads of possible recollection and the impossible to retrieve. I lingered at that juncture in that early decade, made acquaintance again with my young self and marveled at what my life entailed at that time. Oh, how blissful the carefree days of early youth. The cryptic irony being, I did not appreciate the idyllic nature of life as it was then, as much as I appreciate it now.

Well, let me pause with the present introspection, and resume it soon.

Benjoy X-9

Onward March

Do not dwell on the past

If peradventure it lies

Tinged with the aftermath

Of heavy tribulation.

Rather, look steadily ahead to

The promise of the future.

For such past, remains unchanged

And within the confines of the bygone.

Yet, the future portends possibilities.

Thus, focus on the rainbows of your life

Not on the clouds in the fading distance.

Nay, expand your horizons, and aspire

Towards all potential amid the future.

 Look forward!
