Consideration

 “This is my life. I can do whatever I want!” I’ve heard this comment and seen people having such mentalities. My heart aches to hear one person’s family is devastated and the members of their extended families are in turmoil due to one member who has made choices to change his life. It prompts me to wonder what goes on in a person’s mind and what experiences lead to one’s conclusion. When someone is about to decide, does he consider the consequences and what it would mean to the loved ones in his family, and the people he knows or doesn’t know? This bewilderment makes me be aware of my ultimate selections.

Mind is powerful

Your choices followed by actions

Have ripple effects

Change people’s current lives

Send them on different paths

Weekly Photo Challenge – Solitude

solitude1

solitude

Everywhere, I hear noises and voices

I quickly answer and respond

Every day, I receive demands and comments

I rush to comply and improvise

Every hour, I see needs and pleas

I passionately land my ears

The momentum is like a snowball

Where to stop, no idea at all

Once in a while, unplug my self

To be away from the

Noises and voices

Demands and comments

Needs and pleas

And land myself in solitude

Where I could attend my voice and

The voice from above, to

Reacquaint my inner self

Refresh my private thoughts

Re-lubricate my soul

Rejuvenate my energy

Reignite my spirit, so to

Return to the world, and

Be in better Service
