The Journey Within

Six Motivational Tips For A Marvelous Monday Bajezen.Blog1 (2).png

Weighed down by burdens left unseen
They were never hers to carry why couldn’t she keep the slate clean
Trying to do it all like Supergirl
She could never win
Feeling like she was failing at life ready to throw the towel in
Giving away precious energy until it eroded her soul
It was all so heavy, it got too heavy holding on to the old familiar faces the things that brought her comfort but stabbed at her psyche
Dull and aching
She longed for a taste of a new life
Feeling trapped, caged,  a prisoner in her own skin
When did she become tethered
The lioness wanted to growl but all she could muster was a whimper
It was time to start over
Allow, accept, and release
Face it head on
She had forgotten her strength
Her inner goddess unamused
Clawing to break free from the mental chains
Somehow she conjured the strength to rediscover the magic buried deep inside
She dug deep, no more suffering, no more doubts she would no longer hide
Rediscovering her purpose
Redefining her goals, basking in the dysfunctional beauty of the moment she was in
She would grow to love herself again

Hollow : The Daily Prompt Cavity

Hollow Bajezen.Blog 1.png

Resentment, regret they build up
Layers and years of disappointments are parasites that feed on your core 
You can only hold on to it for so long before it wears you down
Steals your inner peace
The anger bubbles  and it’s hard to control the beast
Bitter,  when did life become such a bitter pill
You look in the mirror and you wonder where did the happy smiling version of you go
Everything is dark and it all feels like hell 
You just don’t want to exist anymore
Your burdens are crushing, your mind is a minefield  
There is no safe haven, no hand to hold  
Experiences, people have changed you until you become someone you used to know
You have lost your sparkle,  let them dull your shine until you have nothing left to show
Depleted and drained
It hurts too much to feel
The very thing you are are holding on to is the thing you need to let go
A cavity, an empty space, feeling hollow.

Sticking with the romance or as one of my readers said Fifty shades theme. I never finished the books. Anna annoyed me. I think maybe we all want someone to accept us as we are. Completely. 

Quiet and unassuming
The unexpected stallion rode her rugged
Dominant, dark and intense she felt him to her core
Tied up, stripped down
Relentless passion 
He was her master
She whispered ”Yes sir ” I want to fulfill your every desire ”
He possessed her mind, body, and soul.

List 2 things you have to be happy about?

I live in a winter free zone.

I have a safe and comfortable home. I am grateful that there are no wars being fought here.

 

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?

I used to collect rocks I found on the beach all of the time when I was younger. Now the only rocks I own are my crystals. They were specially chosen for my Sun Sign which is a Libra.

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?

I don’t think I am much of a hugger; then again I am an introvert we tend to want to run from human interaction 🙂 

 

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?

My inspiration was simple. As I heard the news of my next door neighbor’s passing; I was reminded that I should enjoy each moment. We are well aware that we must die; however, we never get used to hearing the news of someone’s passing. Don’t spend your moments being miserable. Appreciate every single second you are given.

enjoy today bajezen

Blink

bajezen blink

 

In pursuit of the perfect life?
Don’t hold your breath
At the end of it, all the years seems like seconds a ripple in time
Do you really want to waste your essence steeped in despair?
Most days it feels as if you merely blink and like magic the hours disappear
Don’t be on your deathbed and lament that you never really experienced life
Seize the moments, make the best of it
Ditch the bitchin and celebrate the fact that you are alive.

The Daily Prompt Loophole

The Daily Prompt Loophole Bajezen.Blog 1.png

The rules only seem not apply to some
Puzzling and frustrating are the inequities of this life
Some can find a loophole in any sticky situation
They just live to stir the pot and cause nothing but strife
The dream and the goal is the pursuit of equality
A celebration of what is fair and just
To live in world where only good flourishes and no one has to struggle to survive
Where kindness is automatic and we appreciate the value of every life
We live in faith and hope that one day the suffering will all be gone
It all started with dream and today the dream still lives on

What is your favorite comfort snack food?

I have several but pizza wins. All that cheesy goodness 🙂

What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?

 

I used to bake rock cakes as we call them here in Barbados. It’s basically a larger, less refined version of a cookie. I think I sold them for 60 cents.

 

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?

I must admit this year started off very rocky. I was in a major funk. I literally probably searched for every positive quote I could find. Sometimes I think we forget to check in with ourselves and be kind to ourselves so I did some yoga and meditation. I am going to share a short self-love meditation. This really helped my mood.

Evoke

Dark and Potent
Bewitching
Wisps of your essence will haunt my soul for centuries
Hooked after just one touch 
Your sensuous kisses melt my cold heart
Set fire to my life with just one tiny spark
You push my imagination to the limits
Thrill me, excite me
Bring me to life
A fireball of passion, you evoke the magical energy that I have kept buried deep inside

Forlorn

 

Forlorn A Poem By Bajezen.Blog1.png

It is a simple act but I have lost count of how
many times per day I forget to breathe
A calm exterior yet  inside a volcano consumes me
Adrift
In a sea of intense emotions 

Overwhelmed,  not a view of the shore in sight
Panic is beginning to set in
Will I survive this plight?
Drained and depleted 
Surrounded by so much love and yet feeling so alone and empty
Nothing it seems can fill the void
Forlorn.

Torn

TORN A POEM BY BAJEZEN.BLOG.png

She found solace in the hurt
She wore the scars of past wounds like a badge of honor
It’s so ironic how thoughts can do so much damage
She convinced herself being alone was for the best
Not willing to take the risk of another plaster being ripped from the walls of her soul
Being crazy in love did not become her
Commitment phobia or maybe it was paranoia
He was getting closer to unlocking the chains around her heart
Maybe the feelings would go away if she ignored them
She feared to be vulnerable; it seems love always left her feeling broken, winded and knocked off her feet  
Her head said no but with every beat of her heart she longed to own him
Yearning for somewhere to run and hide
Old familiar pangs of wanting and longing to have someone by her side
Should she risk the gamble?
A timid, bruised and battered heart torn between the comfort of the past and the new story she was so afraid to write.
