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.

A Blissed Life

 

The heart-racing thrill of a first kiss
The electrifying touch of a lover
Dancing in the rain
The sound of the ebb and flow of the ocean
Simple and treasured moments
Tantalising, mesmerizing
Buzzing with indescribable feelings of joy  

Blissed

The taste of your favorite food 
Recovering from those emotional scars you thought would never heal
A moment of silence to meditate
A deep breath, a journey through the galaxies
A spiritual message, getting in touch with the deepest parts of yourself
Playing with your demons, making peace with  the insecurities that you strive to hide
To know yourself and embrace it all
To be open to and flowing with the very essence of life
On a higher level of consciousness, detached
Present for every moment of this journey
Knowing that the happy life is all up to you
Your beliefs  determine whether or not you are merely existing or living a blissful  life

If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?

 

I love cooking and cleaning. I would hire someone to iron I hate ironing. I am actually fine with yard work as well. It is a good workout.

 

If you were to move and your home came fully furnished with everything you ever wanted, list at least three things from your old house you wish to retain?.

 

I love the message of these wall ornaments would keep those.

My rocking chair and my daughter’s baby blanket.

What calms you down?

 

A few minutes of meditation, the beach and the smell of lavender can have me zen in a few minutes. Music and a good belly laugh always get me in a good mood as well. 

 

 

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

I was inspired by this quote. So very often we get bogged down with daily stresses we lose focus of what really matters. You are never fully dressed without a smile. Despite what may be going wrong there is always a reason to be grateful.

Navigating Life

Navigating Life Bajezen.Blog

God laughs as we plan, life, it never actually follows the script that we write
Sometimes all your are left with is a broken compass and an ounce of willpower to navigate the stormy times
Troubled waters, rough seas heartbreaks that shatter your soul, your heart left to bleed 
How do u handle it all? 
Do you surmount every obstacle 
Or do you huddle in a corner and hide 
Can’t fix the problem; then adjust  your attitude 
Let nothing dull your sparkle 
Keep believing in  your magic 
Let your heart and intuition be your only guide.

Embrace The Elegance Of Simplicity

EMBRACE THE ELEGANCE OF SIMPLICITY BAJEZEN.BLOG.png

Don’t be defined by the events of the past
Intimidated by the monsters that lurk in the shadows
Life is not a puzzle to be solved, fixed or sorted
It may be messy but it is a miracle

Be open to every possibility
Strip it down, clear your mind
Immerse yourself in the simplicity

Embrace the elegance of life
Be ingenious, be brave enough to face any challenge

Beauty can be found in everything
Celebrate yourself, focus on the good
Forget what you think you know
Find the inspiration in the present moment
Never fight against the flow

The Empty Nest

The Empty Nest baje

 

Memories of the pitter patter of little feet
A cocktail of laughter and tears, the breakups, the makeups
Building a home is never an easy job
It takes hard work married with creativity
You want to keep your little  ones safely tucked under your wings
With a huge dose of faith and pangs of anxiety, you let them go
Knowing one day they would grow up to do brave and marvelous things
Your will was always tested but you refused to let them stray
The baby bird now grown will always be a baby in her mother’s eyes
You blink and in instant, your little ones have flown away
It’s quiet now, maybe too quiet
The proud mother hen smiles, knowing she did her best
We can only pray to keep them protected, to raise them well and hopefully they will live a good life beyond the nest

Sunday Soul- Food : Expressing Gratitude In Trying Times

sunday soul food bajezen

Thanksgiving is typically associated with expressing gratitude. I believe we do not need a season to be grateful. Life can sometimes be like a dark cloud hanging over our heads. Those days are not pleasant but are an absolute necessity in life.On gloomy days we can find some of our best inspiration.

Hard times teach us to be strong and to keep trying. We can be surrounded by the darkest of nights and somehow we manage to step forward into the unknown guided only by our faith. Be grateful for the moments that test you they will teach you patience.Your problems teach you how to be ingenious and cm up with solutions. There is nothing in life that you can not overcome. There is no yin without yang, no light without darkness. The next time you are going through a trying period; remember it won’t last forever and there is always something to be grateful for. You are doing your best and that really is all that matters.

Have a Wonderful day and remember to express gratitude to someone special in your life 🙂

 

What are you grateful for today? What have you learned from the tough times in your life?
