About

Philosopher. Artist. Singer. Writer. Poet – which includes also reading poetry on stage (Slamming). Someone who has done a little bit of everything, including textile designing. A girl for whom the sky, stars and constellations are this universes gemstones.

Most importantly, a Miracle. Survivor.

“Sometimes in tragedy we find our life’s purpose. The eye sheds a tear to find its focus”- Robert Brault.

It all started with,

A bang and a crash and a smash!

A sound that was even louder than the bomb.

It broke her bones and crushed her world and smashed her dreams.

It was all over,

All at once.

She laid there lifeless on the bed,

A perfectly carved statue everyone visited,

The people in the white coats back then said,

“She wouldn’t survive,”

But they still hoped and prayed and pleaded,

It was foolish of them but they knew Life wasn’t so unfair.

When she opened her eyes,

The one who survived,

She found herself living a complete opposite life.

Her broken and battered body throbbed with an endless pain

Nobody knew that this was only another start.

Another start of another journey,

She didn’t know herself,

That Fate had thrown her into an abyss,

An abyss she was to climb all alone.

Alone to  get to sunlight,

But everybody knew that this was,

His Wise way of rewarding her with something she had been so unaware of her entire life.

“This is His Way of Loving you,”

Everybody told her,

But His Love was so strange she thought.

He made her fall whenever she got back up,

He made her cry with no tears, dry tears,

He made her heart pound so much that she felt it might burst,

He left her hopeless, only to make her stronger.

“What kind of love is this?”

She often asked herself,

But she knew she had to live whatever the circumstances,

For she knew there was no escape.

Life is unfair, yes, but living?

Living too is never easy,

Especially if you’re the only reason for others lives…,

Smiling too is deceptive then,

It hides the real you.

But why?

Why worry even then?

When you know He’s there?

When you know,

His Love for you will unfold through the sands of time,

When you know,

You just have to be patient?

When you know it’s all just a matter of faking it?

Faking it,

Till you not only just make it but,

Become it?

This poem is based on my own experience of a very bad RTA (Road traffic accident). I have written this ‘slam’ poem in third person because it was initially written to be performed on stage, in front of an audience, and I did not want to personalize it. The last three lines of the poem are an allusion to Amy Cuddy’s quote, “Don’t fake it till you make it. Fake it till you become it.”

    Very nice.

  4. I like that you describe yourself as “philosopher” first. Not a common term that most use for self-descriptions.

  5. Thank you so much kimberlyharding! I’m happy to have you here

  6. Thanks so much for following my blog! And your poem is amazing. It made me immediately think about my own similar story-I broke my back in a trampoline accident, but I am fully recovered and no damaged was done to my spinal cord. Every part of the event was all a big miracle. He really took good care of me. Throughout the healing process I had many moments of tears and fear and doubt, but now I have an incredible story to share with others. God bless 🙂

  7. Thank you for following my blog too Catherine! And thank you for sharing your story with me, I’m glad to have you here 🙂 My story is filled with all dramatic events…I was in coma for 22 days following my accident and it took everyone’s prayers for me to come back. My life also is a big miracle.This one incident has changed me in many ways and has been extremely painful but then,“If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished?”-Rumi…
    Same here, now I have a story to share- all my musings and epiphanies. Take care and have a good day!

    Love,
    Athena

  8. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment
    (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new
    to everything. Do you have any points for novice blog
    writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  9. Hi Wanny,
    I’m so happy you’re liking my blog 🙂 It means a lot! Haha, I’m not too old with blogging either so maybe I’m not the right person for advice, however I’d just like to say that just be yourself while blogging! Add your flavor to your writing 🙂 That’s what I did and still do.
    Hope you’ll take whatever you may like from my blog and enjoy reading my posts. Thank you so much for visiting and even more for commenting!
    Take care,
    Athena

    What an extraordinary poem. It was as if I had written it. Many years ago I was involved in a road traffic accident. Multiple fractures including my skull. I was not expected to live. But we did! We must be survivors. Good to know you 🙂

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will
    be a lot more useful than ever before.
