Time continues to add a period we think it has gone

I sit here looking at the watch, trying to talk to time.

There was childhood, and there were friends. That is all gone.

There were Mom and Dad, and they brought what I wanted. That is gone.

There were things I did not know that fascinated me.

It looks like a large concept and hard to adopt. In reality, it is small and helpful.

Awakening is not only beneficial for spiritual pursuits. It is generally associated with the Hindu and Buddhist thought. It has been explored, understood, and discussed in the west by some.

Walls are built by us to protect yet the divide more than protect.

My mother made me
understand one day.
She explained the
concept of fear.
We think others
would take away,
what we have or
hurt us. Also, why walls,
and curtains exist.
To protect ourselves,
or hide our shame,
we make walls, or
hang curtains around
our space, to what we
think we own or need
to hide something we
would feel ashamed if
someone would take a

All education a society allows is equally or more beneficial for the society itself

Many truths are spoken when you are lonely

Sitting alone, I thought.
It was a good lie that,
she stills loves me.
Yet, it served a good
purpose kept me happy.
All those tales of love
people tell with trust
that they are believed.
Some came asking me
showing compassion.
Saying, “Tell me all?”

I asked, “What you

Our experiences our inside us no one know till we tell them

Traveling is bound
to show my sights.
Some please us.

the gift we have in life.
The reason I think

Little people hearing this are amazed about what goes on

I heard, many

We start making an effort to sleep and robs us of our sleep

The breeze cooled my
burning thought.
Looking with intent,
I felt my eyelids dropped.
I slowly rested my
back thinking I will
rest a little before
going to the doctor.
To ask for some sleep
