Take Every Chance : The Daily Prompt Risky


Be brave
No point in playing it safe
Stagnant ? You will die 1000 deaths wondering about what could have happened if you just did it your way
Make life an adventure
It is already inherently risky
Change is a constant
There are absolutely no guarantees
Go ahead, take the gamble
Bet on yourself
Eyes closed, take the dive
The rush will be invigorating, the choice freeing
You may trip, you may fall or conquer it all
You can never predict the result you will get
Trust and believe
Anything is better than living with regret

Loyalty Or Self Sacrifice ? Be Loyal To Yourself First

be loyal to yourself bajezen


We all want someone we can rely on, a partner,  a lover who we can share our lives with. Somehow, being loyal appears to have become synonymous with taking shit . Has our modern way of life turned loyalty into self-sacrifice? I think, over time we have accepted doing the least, letting things slide and just half-assing relationships as the new normal.

I too have been guilty of giving my all for what I perceived to be real love. I remember being awake several nights ruminating; surely this was not what fairy tales are made of. I do believe that relationships require some form of compromise or minor sacrifice. However, if your significant other should never leave your soul feeling gutted. Some start off so sweetly and when it all ends they are the one holding the knife. Et Tu Brute?



As you look into the eyes of your once fascinating lover and wonder when did this magnificent creature become a beast? My poor deluded heart. Ugh . The jokes I could tell you about my past loves would seriously leave you deceased but let us not go there. Just thank the heavens we eventually wake up from the lust induced stupor.

What exactly do you gain from giving your all to a self-centered twit who cares nothing for you or your feelings? Your time is way too valuable. Just watch how quickly they will move on if you let them go.Stop treating yourself like a charity. Let your output match the input. After all, charitable work does result in good feelings.If you find yourself bitching constantly about how they do you wrong and how your effort is not being matched then take the advice of that Usher song and Just Let It Burn. No, I don’t mean setting their stuff on fire, although oddly enough that could be quite therapeutic.

Love should never leave you feeling hollow. Are you trading your loyalty for feeling broken, worthless and so distorted that you look in the mirror and wonder who is that weak bitch looking back at you? Is losing yourself really worth the illusion of companionship?

I am not strictly speaking of romantic relationships. Anyone who does not have your best interest at heart does not deserve your loyalty. I am speaking from experience; take my foolish advice and shower yourself with love. Be loyal to yourself first, you deserve nothing but the best. Do not tolerate anyone that openly disrespects you, shatters your inner peace and leaves your spirit tattered and torn all for the sake of loyalty.

Inspired by The Daily Prompt Loyal 

One day you will find something worthwhile until then don’t take no mess. What are your views on loyalty? We are open for discussion below 🙂

You are Exceptional


Comparisons are groundless
Left behind, trying to play catch up with others will distort your view and play with your mind
Basing your assessment on pretty pictures
You don’t know the half of their life story
A smile can hide so much pain, turmoil, self-loathing and misery
You may feel small, insignificant, incapable of achieving anything
Forget about running the race
There is no competition, move at your own pace
Nothing is quite as important as peace of mind
Look in the mirror say ”I Love you ”
You are exceptional, a limited edition, beautiful in your own right
A flawesome masterpiece the world needs you to share your light

The Power Of Thoughts

bajezen power of thoughts


Thoughts become things
So what do you believe in?
Do you listen to that little nag in your head that whispers ”you can’t  do it ”
You should be your most fervent cheerleader, immerse yourself in positivity
Never let  tiny missteps, discouragements limit your possibilities
You have all the tools engrained in your DNA  to overcome any calamity  
Just look around, tiny miracles transpire and surround you every day
Accompanied  by an intangible force, an inescapable essence
Celebrate your blessings, shift your focus from your problems
Be confident and believe that everything is going your way

Individuality Is True Genius


bajezen poem about genius


Passion the genesis of genius
A highly charged mind can be the vehicle of a masterpiece
Most grand ideas start with a sprinkle of madness and a huge dose of creativity
We are all blessed with different talents hidden, buried deep inside
All we need is inspiration, a tiny spark, to tap into to them
Bring them to life
Imagination is what makes life magical
Remember when you were a child and saw the world as this big ball of possibility
Believe in yourself, stick to your guns, never doubt your ability
Many will say that it can’t be done because they can not grasp what’s going on in your head
Dream big, dream often, a life without soul is no different than being dead
The genius approach to life is to live it simply
Pursue the things that make you wish you never had to sleep
Most importantly, however you choose to spend your life make sure it makes you happy.

Progress not perfection I think that is the way to go in life
You can plan as much as you want but without  execution, it is similar to trying to fly the tail and not the kite
There will never be the right moment sometimes the pieces of the puzzle
never fit in this life
Inspired, feeling inspired? 

Just act, don’t let fear make you worry about imaginary consequences
Launch that ship of ideas and keep sailing forward
Ride the wave of your creative juices
How will you ever achieve what you want if you don’t make a move? 
Wade through the stagnant waters into  unknown territories
Contentment never comes from being stuck, failure only comes when you stop trying.

An invisible thread
Separate yet connected
Random strikes of lightning
Is it fate or just coincidence?
Aren’t they really just the same thing?
It may not happen when you want but it is always right on time
Visualise to materialise
Utilise the power of your mind
You have the key to unlock  the door to the life you have always wanted
Tiny miracles, serendipities are a reminder that you are safe and loved 
Tune your intuition to those hidden messages
Let the lessons  contribute to your growth, give good karma 
Have faith and trust the process.

It is rarely ever the fairy tale that you  imagined
Sometimes faith is the only thread holding you together
Battling ogres, confronted by giants and wrestling with demons
You do your best to overcome them
Battered and bruised you  manage to find some solace in the chaos
Run through the gauntlet and yet you are still alive
Focused, determined despite all of the setbacks
Knocked down but  you  clawed your way up countless times
You have an unquenchable thirst for success
Delayed but never denied
The highway of dreams  is rarely ever paved with gold
Stronger: the obstacles have given you a metal resolve
Don’t quit no matter what is thrown at you
Face those  challenges knowing one day you will thrive!

The Perfect Reader



She was complex, a tough one to read
Her story consisted of layers of heartbreak, hardships and drama-filled scenes
Thick and attractive, she was judged solely by her cover
Most readers would just leaf through her pages but no one of them really “got her ”
None would take the time to assimilate her words
They always skipped to the next chapter
She craved  the one who would truly appreciate her
So she sat alone on the shelf gathering dust
Waiting for that perfect reader
