My Shadow Remains With Me - Response to Word Challenge

Our shadows fall where we stand but they are the physical shadows. There could be some other type of shadows also which had become a part of our lives and remain with us always to haunt and disturb us but we cannot get rid of them. This poem is an effort to depict human feelings about these shadows.

Response to "Word Prompts Help Creativity ~ Week 34 (Habits) - "Habits"; “Witch's Spell ~ Strong Desire" & "Virtue"

Response to "Word Prompts Help Creativity ~ Week 34 (Habits) - "Habits"; “Witch's Spell ~ Strong Desire" & "Virtue" is what my muse came up with from the word prompt, "Habits." Habits can take control over our lives. It's like we are spellbound & can't break free. Good ones have bad moments too.

If(Regret)

No one would choose a regretful life, rather than a peaceful one. The same goes for valesa as she encounters certain situations that urge a guilty solution.

We The Sheeple - a Poem

"We the Sheeple", have truly lost our way, using humanity's advancements as personal entitlements, rather than to expand our efforts for the common good. History repeats as we again call for the distracting appeal to our vanity, binding our conscience with excuses amplified by someone else's lyrics.

What’s in a Photograph—Poem

The most fascinating thing about a photograph is that it captures a moment, which is gone and can not be recreated. For example weddings, childhood, young age, family get togethers, festivals, travels etc. Looking at the photographs after some years, is a sweet reminder of those precious memories.

The Memories of Yesterday - Sequel of Just How It Is.

From the story foretold in my poem Just How It Is, few years later after drifting apart from each other I just decided to move forward and move on even if it will hurt and break me apart more than it already did. It's time to let go and start a new. New beginnings and a journey to a happy life.

Hatred Is Fear Made Manifest

A little late to the party, but this is my response to Brenda Arledge's word prompt from week 32, "Fear." We can all relate to wanting to fit in, but some will try to fit in at the expense of everyone around them, and fear is the biggest motivator for it all.
