Spring

Cool breeze

Chirping birds

Trees with green leaves

It’s a time to be delighted and smile

My Own World Friday, Apr 24 2015 

In a world all alone

In a world of my own

I can be who I need to be

For it is I who can see me

 

I wander aimlessly

Not out of loss

But in search of my destiny

 

I can only be me

In this lonely world I am free

This secluded world created by me

Sun sets and wind blows

The raging sea calms tonight

Continuing to sail

Confinement Friday, Apr 24 2015 

Confided inside

Eagerly freeing myself

But still entrapped

Concentration Catastrophe Monday, Jan 12 2015 

 I have suffered from a short concentration span my entire life. I am unable to focus for prolonged periods of time and my mind goes foggy on a regular basis, particularly when I’m talked to directly. The situation is aggravated when I’m stressed or under pressure, because it leads to physical symptoms. I am currently experiencing these physical symptoms; i.e. I have a migraine.

 It is highly unpleasant when you’re trying to work, even worse when you are required to work, but are incapable of performing your tasks because your mind is shutting down. It becomes exceedingly frustration when the more you try to concentrate the more difficult it is to succeed. As the pain descends from my brain to my eyes, my eyelids start drooping and I slowly loose the battle against my mind. While one might blame such a situation on sleep deprivation, the truth has more to do with lack of concentration. 

Even though distractions contribute negatively to my situation, they are sometimes required to ease it. Remaining seated for a long time is usually exhausting, for it forces me to focus on a single task. A notion I find tedious if not excruciating. There are very few occasions where I can stay seated and remain attentive, unfortunately these occasions almost never take place at work/school. As a result I wander around with less than half of a focused mind, while the rest strolls in daydream-land.

New year, new outlook
New chances, new opportunities
But same life, same you

Quotes on Writing Sunday, Dec 7 2014

The forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.”
– William Shakespeare (from A Midsummer Night’s Dream)

“Any man who keeps working is not a failure. He may not be a great writer, but if he applies the old-fashioned virtues of hard, constant labor, he’ll eventually make some kind of career for himself as writer.”
– Ray Bradbury

“The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.”
