Power Of Speech: On Pause.

If words just ran together

Leaving punctuation behind

With no commas or periods

Each page would stay undefined

And imagine your favourite song

Denied any intervals of rest

Every note would lose its power

It would be a cacophony at best

Life becomes more breath-taking

When you remember to take

A breath inside each moment

You give yourself a break

And in this serene space

You reconnect to your core

Recovering deeper meaning

You find yourself once more

Oh, how sacred it is to pause

In all the chaos you embrace

To rest your flow of thoughts

Feel the peace within your pace.

This is a heartfelt piece, which I got off IG, just for you. Dear Loves, pause. Rent a bathroom, or carve a corner. Take one deep breath, and maybe another one, then another one; stop and stare, just stare deeply– look consciously, admire, understand, see; the details of all you’ve been missing in life’s busy dash. Feel it. Let it touch you and teach you. Let it inspire something, and invoke something. Then do what you must– cry, or break, or tear; but while you do you, pray. Pray with purpose; pray without purpose. Say something, anything. Because God, He understands; even your unspoken sentiments. Pause and pray; through your moments and days. Sometimes, just that one little pause; will help us make sense of a big mess.


Here’s Me, wishing you all a splufik and astounding week ahead. I love you, like a heartbeat- resoundingly, pause-pose-fully. ❤
