Exploitation

Exploitation!

This is exploitation
Of your deepest fears
Of your darkest woes
Of your scariest thoughts;

What is beneath
Will someday surface

What will you do then
To keep from self-destruct?

A catalyst:
That is what you are.

Three steps forward
Perhaps necessitate
One step backwards.

Have You Ever

Have you ever sensed this tremendous potential inside you?

Have you ever experienced the power you have within you that you know is capable of anything?

Have you ever felt restricted and suppressed, like something impatiently waiting to burst onto the scene?

Have you ever wondered what’s stopping you then?

If you can channel that which is within you without, there is nothing in this world you cannot possess or achieve.

The Shooting Star 

“I believe in speed, not endurance.”

The statement above isn’t really wise in the long run (pun, if you get it! Haha.) both literally and figuratively, because to go far you need more than just a brilliant streak. You’d need sustained brilliance, and that is how it ensures you do not burn out or die off too early. You can ask Usain Bolt, he’s the fastest man on earth but he sure has endurance and he trains on his endurance in order to train his burst and speed. 

However, some people are really like the statement above and they do believe in it. It’s not their fault, but that’s just how they are and that’s how they think. They are like a brilliant flash, and after that they fade into oblivion but leave a lasting effect.

Think of a shooting star. You never see them around much, but when you see one.. It illuminates the night sky and it illuminates your life too. It appears when you least expect it to, and many a time it appears when you’re dozing off after waiting too long hoping to catch it, but with the little bit of energy you have left.. You’re filled with joy and ecstasy as you see it grace the night sky while you hurry to make a wish.

And then, it’s gone. That’s it. It came, it shone, and it left without saying goodbye. But you’ll remember it for the rest of your life. 

Some people are like that. They are not for the long run; they are for the moment. They are not here to stay, but while they’re here they make a huge impact and make their presence felt. They’re like shooting stars. They are speed, not endurance.

I’m starting to think this post doesn’t make much sense, but I think we all sort of get the idea. I’m sure you have someone who came into your life, changed the way you see the world, and left pretty much as sudden as they came. 

The world had them in Bruce Lee, Elvis Presley, John Lennon and many more.. and we all have them in our own worlds, albeit at a scale smaller to the world but no less significant to us.  

Who in your life do you think would say something like that?

A Dedication (Three Minutes’ Work)

Here’s a post I dedicate to all who are
Left out or misunderstood in a complicated world
Where simplicity becomes the bane
In the workings of complexities and anxiety;

Don’t feel so bad if whatever you do and all that you do
Seems wrong or insufficient in the eyes of others
Merely because it does not align with the way they work
Or the way they think things should work;

Many a misplaced grievance is caused
By the misjudged expectations of others;

Run away and be free.

Mis-placed

(The weekends are good for blogging, so here’s one for the day. I don’t think there’s a structure to this one, but make what you will of it yeah? If you have a good analysis or thought about it, do share it with me. Cheers for the weekends!)

Misconstrued intentions
Mistaken notions
Misinterpreted actions
Misdirected goodwill

Just as how beautiful minds cannot thrive in a filthy world
And innocent thoughts cannot filter through a corrupt space

Some people are not meant to fit well into this place.
