Existence

 

Eagerly we coalesce in pursuit of what will bring happiness and eternal serenity
Exploring through the generations unimaginable designs of brilliant ideaologies
Endeavoring to remember the beginning but looking for a way to find the ending
Eternally struggling against the powers of being while hoping we can cheat death
Enduring the bitter sufferings that molest us and find strength as we masquerade 
Embracing daylight in all of its warmth but not forgetting of night’s tranquil tune
Effortlessly some will pursue riches with fortitude while others arduously will fail
Effecting the world with one whisper and holding the power to build or annihilate
Entreating you to analyze choices wisely while you also take risks with a passion
Endlessly searching to find what existence is all about and grasping the answers©

How Is This Possible?

“When a person sets out to learn from others and not to teach others he becomes a true writer.” ~Carla H. Krueger

I love y’all! You just don’t know how you (and writing) have improved my life in so many ways. I have been blogging since the beginning of August, 2016, what a journey!

Now, how is it possible that I have surpassed 1000 followers? Although I try hard to not get caught up with numbers, this is an exciting one for me. A goal I certainly didn’t expect to meet within this amount of time. 

“A writer illuminates the lights of her heart so that everyone can see themselves in the mirror of her thoughts.” ~Debasish Mridha

My next goal, well, it is to improve on my daily likes and comments. Because, although my followers number is higher, my daily “likes” is not reaching even 100. I would love some input and/or tips, if you have anything to offer. I am working hard at making it to many of your blogs, but do be patient with me. And, if you’d like to read about anything particular or have an idea- hit me up! 

So, as I continue to grow in my writing and photography skills, I hope y’all will stay for the ride! And, to the friends I’ve made, comrades and just good people that I’ve met here along the way- well I send big thanks from the bottom of my heart and perhaps a dash of love! ~Mac xx

A Rain Song

6594789-md

Lightning flashed in my eyes, but I could only hear the clap of thunder
Blinded by the shadows, nothing is clear
I felt like I was going under

The voices in my head got louder and they drowned out my quiet cries
Making me doubt myself and choices
They told me so many lies

My mistakes kept haunting me, as I continued searching for perfection
The end was in sight, to my head I held the trigger
Couldn’t find any objection

Sweet innocence was yesterday’s news, my only possession was shame
I quickly took one more breathe, as my life
The flash finally did claim

All I heard was the clap of thunder, then lightning struck me with a bang
I kept falling down, so very far down
Then my last words I sang

“Can anybody hear me as I scream out in pain?
Will anyone notice if I’m forever gone?

 Am I crying or is it just the rain?“©

A Taste Of History

A trip to the Battleship North Carolina in Wilmington, NC proved to have many great historical things to see. From the deck and multiple floors below, to the Captain’s quarters and more, it remains a time capsule. Here you see a recreation of a soda shop which correlates with the era. This is where you can have a bite to eat while touring. In response to Tuesday Photo Challenge: Nostalgia

The Yuck Factor

9781847382887

There are some words that just shouldn’t be said

The sound of them going through my head

Makes me want to get sick

And gives me a tick

Words like juicy, moist, crusty and gunk

These really put me in a nasty funk

My stomach ups and churns

In other words it turns

So talk to me of things that are full of class

Seriously do not to want to hear crass

This does not mean I’m a prude

I just mean don’t be rude

Some words just have this terrible yuck element

And I wish people would be more hesitant

To use them as adjectives or verbs

Oh how this greatly perturbs

So, please stay away from words like gooey 

Oh and also do not say the word dewey

Okay, when talking just be mindful

Use words that are delightful

Can’t Make This $#!t Up

ugs

The first time I saw the commercial for this product, I seriously thought I had just turned on Saturday Night Live! No, this could not be a real thing! People would not be spending butt loads of money (pun intended) for a stool (pun unintended)!

But, I was mistaken, for there, on the television was an ice cream pooping unicorn! Yes, this was a sales pitch for the Squatty Potty. I mean how else could you possibly talk about a product used to help someone have an easier time going number two? Of course, unicorns and ice cream, this makes perfect sense! And a stool none the less, you can’t make this $#!t up! 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I am a huge advocate of potty talk. Personally, nothing makes me giggle more than an inappropriate conversation about bodily functions! Yes, with two teenagers, I can let ’em… well never mind. So, needless to say, with this knowledge, you can imagine my pure delight! Actually, I was probably more like an eight year old boy that likes to say the word fart way too much! But hey, what can I say, ice cream otherwise known as unicorn crap, makes me happy!

So long live the Squatty Potty!  And be sure to catch the MUST SEE commercial video HERE, for Squatty Potty!

Beauty’s Shadows

“Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides.” ~Junichiro Tanizaki

Love Is…

love-1

Be mine? Please be my Valentine

When all is said and done

I’ll be your only one

Love is more than words, it’s also verbs

Showing each other that you care

Through it all you’ll be there

Love is actions but it’s also passions

As we become one with desire

Intensities fanning the fire

Love is affection but with reflection

I promise you all my tomorrows

Even the ones with sorrows

Love is adoration and communication

Accepting each other with flaws

And speaking without pause

Love is giving all then more, encore

Because sacrifice may bring pain

But true love brings only gain

Be mine? Please be my Valentine

When all is said and done

You are my only one©

Force Unstoppable

“If you add your hot passion to the cold attitude of another person, it becomes lukewarm. Don’t stand on the toes of dwarfs; stand on the shoulders of giants!”
~Israelmore Ayivor, Leaders’ Watchwords

water-vs-fire

I have fire burning within, a raging ember

Refusing to let others put out my passions

Never changing myself for another, never

Choosing people that add only positivity 

They will raise me up, not bring me down

No water can turn me lukewarm, I’m a force

For when my fire burns hot, I’m unstoppable©

This Bitter Beast

She is a devilish beast, full of crafty ways
Standing in the shadows, lurking
I feel myself locked within her evil gaze
Ignoring the place she comes from
And what she’d want to get from the likes of me
But I am rendered quite numb
Hopeful that she soon will just let me be free

Escape from her control seems to be in vain
My strength is running on empty
Taking me under her spell, again I feel the pain
Whispering in my ear, confessing
Reminding me of emotions I wanted to forego
Mind then taken over by obsessing
It’s what bitterness does when you won’t let go©
