Our own battle

Showing our feelings seems to be one big battle, a battle with our own daemons who won’t stop building walls around us. They will continue their work until there isn’t any chance left for us to escape their prison. They will continue putting brick by brick until we take our first step toward self-destruction. These daemons who fight us with flames and fire-arrows, which by only touching us they transform our soul in a black-stoned object and nothing more.
But we are more than this and won’t let them win the big battle, indeed they may win some fights now and then, they may weaken our forces but will never win over our soul.
We are like a roller coaster which goes up and down. We laugh and we fall, we are confused but also crystal clear. We are the hottest star but also the coldest iceberg. Some days seem to be never-ending and some pass in a blink of an eye.
Still we are part of this story, part of this tale, part of this life, part of the sky, part of the sea, we are the universe itself.
We play by our own rules and are able to fly, fly over the walls which we’ve built with our own weakness.

Alis volat propriis

Your love is something most of us would even fight for. This warmth you give to your next is something many people have never felt in their entire life. Some might have dared to dream about this summer wave which comes out of your halo, and some don’t even have the capability to think that far nor could they possibly imagine what it is to feel this heat.

Your love calms one down and opens their soul to existence, helps them discover their inner beauty by only taking a look into your eyes that serve as a reflection so they can see what they really are, hear their own voice.

You hold into your arms more than just the body of your lover, you hold their treasure but also their misery, which by only your lifting it up starts vanishing away.

You free your lover from any sorrow they were caring with until the moment they’ve met you.

You give them back their freedom and remind them about their own wings.

Like a shell

We all build walls around us to protect ourselves from the pain and the hate which has overtaken this beautiful world. We build heavy, thick walls to hide from the sight of the people around us. We keep our inner beauty clean and bright, letting it shine only for our own body.

All that is left is writing, writing about how we really feel inside, about who we really are. This is the only way we communicate to the outside world.

We hide the bones and cells of which our body is made but that’s not all – we isolate our soul too, not letting in the sun.

One important aspect, while building these walls, had been neglected: the windows. We somehow forgot that the sun cannot warm us if we don’t give it the opportunity to shine in.

How long should we wait before we take the hammer and start breaking down the walls? How long are we going to hide our feelings? Do we really have to wait until we shade our skin, like snakes do, so our loved ones can see our beauty? Aren’t we the masters of our fate and the captains of our souls?

We decide how we shall feel, we alone built these walls and we alone can break them down so easily. Lucky us that we don’t have to wait until our soul leaves the body so we could decompose and leave behind our beautiful structure, like a shell has to do. Have you ever picked up a shell, while walking on a beach? Have you ever wondered how it looked inside, trying to figure out the shape of its skeleton? Have you ever taken time to admire the beauty of nature?

Nature gives us everything we’ve ever been searching for. It gives us everything we need in order to be happy yet we are still asking for more. We are hungry and the more we get the more we want, being too dumb to appreciate what we already have.

Nature loves unconditionally but we, are we? Do we know how to love? Do we do whatever we do just because we feel like it or because we want something else in return? Do we really have to leave our bodies for others to see how beautifully we are structured?

No! We don’t! We can undress ourselves from these dirty clothes we are wearing every single day, and let the world see our inner beauty.

We can take this beautiful shell as our example, that we found while walking on a beach. It had to leave its beautiful home for us to see its lines and shapes, but we can use our power to show anyone our beauty. If the shell had had the same power it wouldn’t have wasted it, I assure you.

 

Don’t waste your power on building walls but take it all to spread love.
