If you do not let go it will consume you
Being this person untamed by senses is not an eternal character
For it will soon fade and perish like the memory of yourself to those whom have hurt you
What do you think you will accomplish from it
Fickle beings will ruin you for it is only in stability that you will find true pleasure
Your reward awaits you lest you keep avoiding it
The more you fool yourself into believing this will work, the more it will cajole you
Why can’t you see what is good like the dew on Spring’s children so pure and loved by all
Is the laughter of the devil’s hail so enticing that you see not past the storm
Or do you find comfort in the dwelling of frivolous mischief that will never last longer than a moment
If friends were God you would surely be among the losers
But hope still lurks around the corner
For you are loved more than hate itself
And it will be through this love that you will eventually learn comfort, peace and true happiness
Ambivalence will not prevail

Ode to the light that will shine on you

When all is said & done..

Ramadaan and Eid have come and gone, we've finally settled into the new apartment and all the minor and major hurdles have been overcome. The past few weeks have been immensely stressful, frustrating and exhausting and it had taken a toll on everyone in my family. But at the end of it all, we had all come together again and had a beautiful Eid.

The question now is what is to come. What's next and where to from here. Mum is already looking for new properties and Hajra is setting her sights on Dubai. So where does that leave me. I can only say that I'm looking beyond the horizon and that there are only bigger things to come..

This feeling of relief is amazing and I don't want it to end. But I know very well that it'll only last until the next mountain. I guess that's the beauty of it, you have to experience the rains and hails to know the sun and warmth just like you have to experience frustration and sadness to know peace and happiness.

I'm just glad that things always come up daisy for me when all is said and done...
