Limitless #4 WIL Series

Life has a way of teaching us things ahead of time, much earlier than we often expect. So in my personal walk in life, I daily discover new angles to LOVE. I keep finding out that love is not just what we often think it is; that mushy feeling inside that can make you fly above hills, or run across a field of yellow lilies or just a good feeling that never stops.But hear it now dear friend, LOVE is not and will never be a feeling!

Love has always been and will continue to be a choice, a discipline, a sacrifice of self for the greater good of others.

As soon as you understand that the focus of love is never on you but another, then you will begin to understand the true language of love.

With this in mind, I would like to reveal to you one of the many faces of love. Yes, love has many faces even what we don’t expect, many avenues, as well as challenges. But all in all tis LOVE.

Have you ever wondered why at times things do not just seem to be functioning well in your life especially when it has to do with people?

Well, I have had quite a number of those. Also, some sad instances where people take advantage of my time, effort, kindness and even my nature of being concerned about the well-being of others.

I once felt so guilty asking myself why I am always the one giving and I never get presents back, never get return favours, never get quality time back… But I remembered what my mother once told me:

“When you notice that you keep waving your hand to people who never take the time to wave back, maybe it is time to give your hand a rest, until it is worth to raise it.”

I was young and at that time I did not know what she meant until it came out in black and white recently. Perhaps the main reason we get fed-up with others is because they do not add value to our lives. When you give effortlessly to those that matter in your life, it is bound to multiply and bear fruit in one way or another.

But if we keep giving effortlessly to those that don’t really add value to our lives, it is like casting seed in a thorny bush where it will suffocate, never growing, never bearing fruit, never rewarding.

So with that in mind, let us take time to identify the people who REALLY add value to our lives (not just with physical or monetary bits) and choose to acknowledge them by loving them unconditionally and offer them what comes with it.

Love is a choice, so choose wisely!

 

Limitless #4 WIL Series

 

It would be nice if people gave instead of just receiving,

It would be nice if people cared instead of swelling in pride,

It would be nice if people communicate instead of launching war of silence,

It would be nice if people met and connected instead of hiding under passive “social networks”,

It would be nice if people loved instead of feeding fear with selfishness,

It would be nice if people accepted each other instead of drowning with DOs and DON’Ts,

It would be nice if people opened their hearts to help themselves and others instead of hiding under “personal struggles”,

It would be nice if people knew how short life really is instead of postponing special moments in life,

It would be nice if people expected the best from themselves instead of others,

It would be nice if people remembered these things instead of squeezing them at the backseat of their lives.

It never hurts to care. It never hurts to be the best you ever can be. It never hurts to love unconditionally those who care about you. It never hurts to live life as the LORD expects us to.

But try not to… And the best of guesses is that it will hurt like you never expected!

 

Yours Truly,

Ayuma.

Love Silently Roars #2 WIL Series

Woman In Love Series #2

Whoever said love is discreet, knows not of our love,

For ours is the loudest affair I know in this rondure,

Yet we stay enchanted in silence, in its awe.

It beats like thunder, like heavy blows of waters against a dhow,

It erupts like fiery volcanic splashes, ignorant of a tamed nature,

It thumps and trumps like a wild waterfall, so alive and free.

Like the African lion at dawn, it awakens all life in the plains,

It rushes like blustery weather delivering beautiful scent,

Yet we remain silenced as these sweet upsurges brew within us.

So I sit hushed in front of you, close enough to feel your warmth,

Close enough to marvel at the shine in your eyes.

And your silent romance rushes from your handsome beam to mine,

With blissful bursts multiplying as they search for playing ground.

Resting upon my chocolate cheeks, flares melt into soft hue of rouge,

Then I find myself surrendering my emotion with a gentle crack of smile.  

We are naïvely enchanted by our loud wild love,

Restless, as it dances in our souls, silent to the auricles,

We are one hot, wild mess of untamed emotion,

You and I, à la mode, locked in Love!

Woman in Love Series #1 SAFE

Woman in Love Series (Poetic Reflections)

Lately I have been going through changes, a series of changes from the inside. As I grow from a lady to a woman with each day, I just hope that whatever I will find on my journey will most certainly be full of love, adventure and success.

We live in a world where LOVE has been stained by false ideologies and even to just the act of Sex which is just a casual happening instead of the beautiful gift that it is supposed to be between two people who truly love one another and have protected their love in a sacred unit called marriage. Yes, I still believe in the classics of marriage!

I believe that there is more to Love than just sex, empty words, expensive wines and chocolates and modern myths we see in the movies.

Love is a pure expression to the one you love with all that is in you, with all that you know, with all that you have got and with all that you believe in.

So I borrowed a leaf from the Bibilical Song of Songs to bring out the true essence of love. If you know what they are all about then you understand why at times I will be using “He” instead of “he” in these poetic reflections…These words are from my heart to yours… For anytime, anywhere, with the one you love.

My first entry is “Safe”.

#1 SAFE

Resting in the arms of He who loves me,

Here, I am safe and warm even when the world outside is at war.

His heartbeat overpowers the shots and deafening demolitions,

His warm embrace breaks the skinny claws of creeping cold.

The stare of His eyes lures me into a glorious future,

His breath breathes hope right into me,

And oh His smile…His smile is all the word ‘Sunshine’ means to me.

He is my love, my knight, my safe haven.

He is my Song of Songs!

Yours Truly,

A Woman in Love.
