I bring to you the ethereal words of the immortal poet, Rumi.

“The minute I heard my first love story,

how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.”

― Rumi, The Illuminated Rumi

Today, I nominate these amazing people for the Three Day Quote Challenge:

RAGING BATTLES
by Saloni Verma

A young girl walks bare feet,
Amongst the gunpowder and debris,
She looks at the bloody bodies, now covered,
She mourns deeply for her beloved.

The world was such an empty place before,
Then came her prince-on-the-white-horse to the fore,
They shared a bond that could last forevermore
The world wasn’t so empty anymore.

He was a soldier of the state,
Serving the country was his fate,
He loved his girl and his nation,
He was his country’s true citizen.

They walked the lush gardens hand-in-hand,

They were not aware of the upcoming pain.

One day, he got called for his duty,
He was called to serve at the front;

And it’s going to be really hard to find messages of self-love and support anywhere. Especially women’s and gay men’s culture. It’s all about how you have to look a certain way or else you’re worthless. You know when you look in the mirror and you think ‘oh, I’m so fat, I’m so old, I’m so ugly’, don’t you know, that’s not your authentic self? Continue reading “Pride, Strength and Resilience”
