Wedding (pt 2) Financing your wedding

Pages in my mind

I am not the kind of person that meddles in other peoples issues that dont concern me. I try to live my life in peace with others and minding my own business. I keep my mouth shut on the conduct and issues of other people unless they affect me.

After observing how common weddings have become and the trend of making fancy, and extravagant, I kept quiet. I also observed a tendency in the society for the wedding couple to ask their relatives and friends to contribute towards their wedding expenses. And I said nothing. After all it was their weddings and not mine.

I kept my mouth shut until my friends started having wedding and asked me contribute. I had to speak. I dont understand this idea of a someone planning to have a wedding to expect other people to foot the bills of the wedding. I understand one…

Spread your wings

Stop blaming the winds
For your hard falling
Let your wings unravel
And trust them to carry you.
The winds may be unfavourable
But never lose hope
Just believe you can fly
And keep on fighting.
Spread your wings
Grace will pick you up
Lift your wings high
And you’ll fly back up.
Your fall turned to flight
You’ll begin to soar
Higher and higher like an eagle
Without ever getting weary

Someone who values you

Someone calling you or texting you at 3 in the morning is awesome. It feels nice to know that someone somewhere is thinking about you in those odd hours when they better be sleeping.But you should never be over-excited by those 3am calls or texts if the same person cannot call or text you at 3pm.

May be they remembered to call you just because they are lonely and sleepless and wants someone to cheer them up. They could still be chatting with a couple of you at once. You are just a part of the crowd entertaining them.

They call not because they care about you to check on you but out of their selfish desire to beat their boredom. They only remember you when they need you. All they care for is you giving them fun and nothing to do with your interests.

Someone who truly values you will not only call you at 3 in the morning when they are free and lonely but also at 3 in the afternoon when they’re busy working. They will always see you in everything they do. They wish you could be there to see them do whatever they are doing.

You are always in their minds no matter how tight their schedule is and they’ll always find time to check on you. They wont wait till they are free to call you or even text you back. Your calls wont go unanswered or texts unreplied.

Someone who values you will always be in touch with you. They dont call or text you only when they need you or need a favour from you. They will always be available for you when you need them. They look forward to spending not only friday nights but also all day saturday with you.

Your company is their desire.They dont see you as someone just to have fun with, but someone worth of their time and attention. They will still stay with you even when the fun is gone. They will love you even when the feelings flactuate.

Kahlil Gibran on Love

Pages in my mind

When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you.
Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are…

A crowded hall

A crowded hall
Illuminated by flashing lights
Music on full blast
The dancefloor blazing
Tipsy reveller having merry
Dancing to the rhythmof the music
Screaming and shouting
Too much noise
Cant even hear myself think
Surrounded by many people
Yet I feel lost
Out of place
And I want to go home

Todays friendships

We live in a modern world where friendships are made for gain, and nothing is shared. People nolonger trust their friends to open up to them. Anything you share with others could be used against you.

Your bestfriend become your worst enemy. Past experiences of betrays, backstabbing, and disappointments from friends have taught people to be cautious with who they let in to their hearts. They have erected a wall around their hearts as a defense mechanism.

Hearts have been broken so many times. People prefer to keep their feelings to them rather than expressing them unsure of how they’ll be received.

People have learnt to keep a small circle of friends and share less if any. True friendships have become very rare to find. If you got someone you trust enough to confide into be grateful. Appreciate such people and never betray your friendship.

A rainy evening

Pages in my mind

That tranquility and serenity
When I’m sitted on my sofa
On a rainy evening
Unwinding after a long day
Taking small sips of hot coffee
Soft melodies playing on my stereo
Rain pounding on my mabati roof top
The water trickling down the gutters
In a soothing musical tones
Rain drops pattering on the window pane
And there is a refreshing smell
I feel at my pains washed away
My mind cleansed
And my heart awakened
Its the blessing and beauty of rain
Soothing and calming my spirit
