I was watching the cursor on my phone screen blinking in a rhythm so perfect, more accurate than a young athlete heart beat, and then I asked my self; who gave that cursor a “soul”? The answer is simple; it is a collection of machine code and electricity running through electronics. No power no beats. Soon after, my phone sent it’s dying well “I only have 10% left in me, I pray for you to save me” my phone was silently praying for a higher power to grant life, to save that soul, to keep that perfect rhythm.

Letter to my sixteen year old self:
Don’t let the world drag you down. Don’t let anybody tell you what you are and what you aren’t. Your mother spent years calling you beautiful, don’t let society tell you otherwise. No, she isn’t crazy. (And no, a donkey is not a gazelle in his mother’s eyes.) Moms aren’t blind, they just see the beauty in you that you haven’t learned to see yet. She’s building you up in a society that is dragging you down. You owe that woman your strength as a woman later on in life. Continue reading
I remember falling off a jet ski
when I was a kid. I had no life jacket
and couldn’t swim; I had no life

Today I’ll be telling you the story of John. John is a newly graduated medical doctor. Like most say “Fresh Outside the Box”. He comes from a small conservative family. His father was factory worker but now retired and his mother never worked outside the house. He has always been the smartest child in his class and did very well in exams.

See, throughout his medical training while getting close and more accustomed to the human body, both living and dead, his core beliefs altered a little. As he saw his professors discuss the life of individuals and how they chose who lived and who did not he became intrigued. And later was drawn by its power. Continue reading
To wonder… is the central jewel of the crown.

What is it? To realize, we are roaming this planet, a blue sphere floating in the suburb of this galaxy amidst of billions of galaxies. Continue reading
I cannot help but wonder
What kind of film would develop
if he were to see us
everytime we uttered his name.
Would he see
Desperation, or hope?
Destruction and disparities?
Because of the politics that flawed the
mankind he created – Continue reading
She found herself crippled near the pits of hell
a profound abyss she conjured for herself
a hollow void where oblivion transcends
as melancholy deluges her soul & ascends
losing all forms of hope, she pondered
perhaps to leap through life is to be faltered
the wire was far more worn out either way
and her apathy wasn’t a misnomer but a dismay Continue reading
It was a thawing in my side
as entrenched thoughts
seemed to haunt me
every once in a while.
I stuttered at the words
I claimed refuge in the veil
I may have broken a seal,
the french fries were redundant
but they were real – Continue reading
