Life

asdfg

Constant battle
Ups, downs, blues,
Blood, sweat, tears,
Extreme ways, bright thoughts.
Never allow fear to infect your soul,
You are a fighter,
You are stronger than you imagine.
And life goes on.

33 words, memyselfandela, 2013, this is my entry for Trifecta


Thought

After a very intense day I am left with the taste of how very impredictible life can be. Sometimes we are next to someone we know and they have a heart attack in a moment. Or a bad epileptic seizure. Or a psychotic episode that you would have never imagined. Life, death, disease, hope, depression, pain, all real and intense to the core,  I have lived this and I see it live every day.
Yes, life can be very extreme for some people, all the time. And yes, you are strong and you deal with it but  it can still surprise you every day, because life’s posibilities are beyond our imagination.
If you are ever in an extreme situation remember this one simple and golden piece of advice: keep calm, breath and think. Evaluate the situation. And if you feel that you can’t deal with it on your own just ask for help. Learn by heart the phone numbers for Police and Ambulance, you never know when you will need to use them.
Do your best. Trust your instinct. And you will see that all will end up all right.
Much love to you all.
Ela

Purple

Painful hours when the night falls asleep
Only purple lights cram my window
Purple thoughts rolling circle under my eyes
All my birds have gone silent
Purple hours when the lonely night goes to hide
I set like a dying moon
