My dearest…

Looking up as I saw your face

Wondering what its like to taste

Those moments I treasure

As we grew closer together

Full of smiles and laughter

But one day you were gone

Far away from the place

Far away from me

But I never gave up

One day for sure

We will see each other

Even if you might go away again

One day for sure

We will see each other

Now or Forever

 

 

This poem is dedicated to all those who have someone dear to them, say and show that you love them for you don’t know what tomorrow will bring. Thank you to Aunt Connie C. whom I love and inspired me for this poem. RIP Aunt Connie  – Rosette

Just the way you are

I keep catching a glimpse of myself

On the windows, glass doors, mirrors

What more must I do

To make myself look worthwhile

 

I keep going back and forth

On the hallways and corridors

I keep putting makeup

On my face, cheeks and lips

I keep straightening my hair

Even though its almost burnt to crisp

What more must I do

To make myself look worthwhile

 

Aritzia, Michael Kors, Coach,

The latest trends and form fitting clothes

What more must I buy

To make myself look worthwhile

 

Skipping meals, eating less or eating more

It’s seems like an endless downward spiral of emotion

What more must I do to make myself worthwhile

 

Whatever you’ve been told

Just ignore,

Put your head up high,

Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re not enough,

Even yourself, because you are worthwhile

You are wonderfully and fearfully made

Just the way you are

You are worthwhile

You’re Beautiful!

I have seen this movie several times already, and it always touches my heart whenever I watch it. I recommend you watch this, its about Queen Esther and how she became queen. I completely adore Queen Esther and her story of courage and unfading beauty.

I just want to share this verse that is related to Queen Esther and the movie and to all women. I believe each girl out there should always remember this verse.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

1 Peter 3:3-5 

So many women focus on their outward appearance to make themselves attractive but they tend to neglect their inner self and how their character should grow and develop. It should be the other way around. Focus on the inner self- gentle and quiet spirit and the outward beauty will overflow from within. We should try to and start believing that we are beautiful inside and out. Even though it’s hard sometimes to look in the mirror each morning. Deep inside, you are beautiful, adorn yourself with a gentle and quiet spirit like Queen Esther.

In conclusion,

Thank you Lord Jesus for the reminder that I am beautiful first inside and that is more important to focus on the inner beauty than outwardly appearance. Help me to accept what I cannot change with myself and those I can change, help me to strive better and work on myself to become the best version of me. I pray in Jesus name, Amen.

You are Beautiful

beautiful

Being molded and sculpted

Aiming to be Barbie dolls

Even though It’s like being locked behind bars

Unrealistic Perception

Distorted view of oneself

No one is perfect

Perfection is a sickness of society

Why can’t you see

You are beautiful

Just the way you are

Freckles makes you unique

Chubby cheeks, Adorable!

Your laugh is one of a kind

Don’t worry with make up

Less is more

Don’t worry about others

Know that you are worthy

All you need

Is to believe in yourself

You are you

You are beautiful

The Gift

download

When I used to work at a restaurant, I would always talk to an elderly couple that were regular customers. I worked there for 2 years and known them for a year. The woman together with her husband frequently got breakfast and dinner and I would see them in my day shift. Both of them had an inspiring story about their life and children that were all grown up now and have children of their own. They eat at the restaurant right after her dialysis and on the weekend her husband buys the groceries nearby. Ive learned many things while I was working and saying hi to them. Ive learned that people’s stories of their life gives us guidance so that in the future we wont make the same mistake as them but on the brighter side, learn that life is tough but we should cherish each moments and live and laugh with family and friends. Learn from the past, look forward to the future and cherish the present, thats why its called a gift. I appreciate the small things in people and I see Jesus in them.
