Literature
Vivacious Melody
Know your song
You will never suffer  
Your music
Walk in its rhythm
The sun was  
Bright and cheery
The souls could not be  
Bothered - the sun’s beauty
They had no music  
No rhythm  
No place to take them
No soul
The pianist  
Knew not
How to deal with
Those
Who got no soul
Do they not
Deserve  
To live too?  
So the search begins
For the music within  
Music  
In the trees  
The leaves and bark
They must find their own
Music
The soul of things  
They must find their soul

Literature
Diamond Fortress
So far
No one walking in
If they got closer
See the flowers
Every rose its thorns
A place called home
Beautiful – frightening
Can’t see the beauty
Ugliness only
Only wasps
No butterflies
Darkness flicker light
The moat is the pond in which
Water lilies lie
The the the thorns – here
Ugly bricks are
Glass windows
The terrible moss
Is the beautiful garden
The copper colour
The smell of what was down
Can you find the
Love within at all
Look at the brick work
Walk in the same road
Her footsteps – the love
She walked in yellow
As bright – the sun
Purest agape
Time has made her different
Different different

Validation
“Of course he’ll like her, why wouldn’t he like her? She’s perfect.” _ Said a perfect woman.
That line was not about me
It was about a girl who indeed is perfect
I cannot say I am not jealous
I wish such a line would be said about me
Alas
I do not have that perfect face, perfect smile, or perfect figure
I have a crooked nose
A toothy smile
And a fat figure
Perfect
I am far from perfect
I do not know why I compare myself to miss perfect
Most imperfect
Alone in my room
Sulking about the absence of my perfection
I heard
It’s what’s on the inside that counts
They are PERFECT inside and out
My heart is stone and fictional
My mind is defective
My soul does not know empathy
A shattered statue
Nowhere near perfect
Of course he will not like me
I am nowhere near perfect.

Literature
Obscure Star
Underneath the stars
Tempted to count
These stars I dwell -- take me elsewhere
… One … That was it … One …
Away from the stars
A happy couple
Trying not to make a scene
The sea sends its salty breeze
Now I’m agitated
That was unforeseen
I try my hollow smile for a while -- futile
Is it because of the one star above?
Or me -- my loneliness?
Under this star that night
I was brought here to you
But I still hold my heart tightly closed
It can’t be that I don’t love you
Underneath the star I made a vow

Literature
Freed by Laughter
I cannot stop but smile and laugh
I have no reason
I just feel great
My smile cannot escape my face
Entering something new
Free – liberating
I do not understand this feeling
Nina Simone would know
Am just feeling good
My smile brought me back to me
No longer uninspired
My own happiness and laughter
My Liberation - victory
That’s my inspiration

Literature
Serenity
I see a lady
In the purest form
Around her a glow
Angelic
A modest smile about her
Unexplainable is her beauty
Her essence brings joy
To your heart
Her search is over
That is her enchantment
Her soul is tranquillity
It is the glow
She walks in
I see pain in her
I see acceptance
She never asks why
She only thanked
I saw a lady with the purest heart

First Blush
They said introduce you
Startled - hi
My name
Why is that a start?
Hi
They call me by a name
I accept it
In fact
Love it
I consider myself cute
Some agree
Some do not
Does it matter?
I know me
A beautiful smile
From with in
At times with grief
interested in..
A lot that I’m confused
Which do I want?
Which do I choose?
An artist of all sorts
That is what I am
They call me Soona
I call myself
The cutest there is
If you got my concept
You’d agree
But then again
We’re all subjective
To that word
Me

Literature
Romantic Collude
As the artist and romantic that I am
Emotions flowing
I see quite differently
Looking at a man staring at the sea is
An art piece to me
He sat looking at teary waves with magic setting
I can relate to his wheelchair
His thoughts and sea
As an artist
One day I saw the world.
Beautiful, scary, magnificent, and gory
A wheelchair looking at Jeddah’s identity
That is a story worth telling to me
The artist that I am

Literature
Transcendent
I haven’t seen a girl so tender
With her you feel a flurry of air
Cold and jasmine scented
Her smile takes me elsewhere
She has wondrous eyes
That no man has seen before
There’s nothing I could compare her to
Gentle, lovable, beautiful and perfumed
Her voice is sweeter than pleasure
She’s my love whom I don’t deserve
But I went ahead
Believe it - that smile
Those eyes
Kind heart
Mine
And me
Hers

Literature
Uncertain
Hey ..
It's me the girl searching
For a dream
The girl
Who does not know what she's
Meant to be
I want to do so much so I list
One, two, three
But none is done all
Plan B.
Tired of this routine
Searching what I am meant to be
I want to go forward
But no experience in me
Terrified I reverse
Everything I do is for the public to see
Those people
Judging
Me
What I do for me and them
To see I mean
It's O.K.
Be lost they say
How long can I stay this way
Give me the limit
To your O.K.
I still wonder
What was I born to do
Writing, painting, photographing, sculpting, designing
Marketing
I wanted to inspire instead
I'm doing nothing
Scared of the judging
It's my fault not yours
But still
What was I born for?

Literature
Tender
Twenty one with
Imaginary friends
Not alone - lonely
Why do you think
They're all things
One needs in a friend
Perfect - why not
They temporarily cure
Then to usual tears
One tells me "smile"
Another loves my skills
Then down a road
A stranger smiles
Like strangers in the night
As I grow they're
More and more
Hence I ask
Why
Try and understand me
Heaven knows I don't
And tell me
Why do I do what
I do

The Route
Walked in the lane
Of the broken hearted
Was told I belong
Down the alley
This wasn’t the right place
Went back to
The road I take
There are lovers
Heart breakers
Broken hearts
At the end - a staircase
Don’t know to where
Too scared to ask
Never took it
Never felt I could
Too scared to know
Down the road - are beggars
Dressed in colours dull
Not for money
Just to see colour
And the sun
My avenue is for
Broken hearted
Heartless
Stolen hearted
Soulless
With a staircase
Too scared to approach
For the lovers
Loveless
Who lost love
We all walk together
We know it isn’t over
Unlike the alley
I was told to walk in
There people think
They have no hope
No staircase
We stick together
until we cross
To the other side
The beggars ask
To go - the staircase
Of colour
Light
Rainbows
Some say heaven
How would I know
Never dared to ask

Literature
Apery
I liked a man
Who likes himself
He didn’t care
It was easier he said
He's a friend
A good one
Also my muse
A curious one
The best I had
Made me smile
Made me feel beautiful
He acted like I was
As silly as it sounds
Always want to feel
I don’t feel often
Doesn’t care
I know I do
Wish the best
To who changed my life
As un-special as I am.

Literature
Glorious
A queen
Lived alone
Can’t I?
What’s beauty?
One wished
To be close
He got hurt
Not my fault
I told him
I’m the ugliest
Why not be alone?
Don’t understand
Tears streaming my cheeks
Salty water
Accompanied a frown
I’ve seen water many a times
Warm and cold
Running down
Always a sun and a rainbow
Where’s my rainbow
Am I to wait for sun?
Acted like a cave
Nothing I can do
I remember
A queen
Lived alone
Can’t I?

Like Zombie Footsteps (Poem)
Like Zombie Footsteps
    By J.C. Solis
Is it pain?
Is it dread?
The heart has stopped
Yet still... Hungry...
An Unsatisfied Thirst
To mocking voices
To missed bullet fire
With slowly dragging feet
A mindless individual
Who was long since dead
A body with no mind
And with emotions no more
Memories
That bring upon him tears
To his past lived inferno
With everything lit ablaze
But it is all Relative
For he now sits on the floor
In his white straight-jacket
Inside cushioned white walls
He remembers
When he last said Goodbye
But it was not forever
Yet the damage was done
Like Zombie Footsteps
Walking to the Light
Where His Hope Had Died
Yet there was still An Ember
Hurt to touch
Yet still so familiar
An Oath that was Made
That was Almost rent Asunder
Then they came
Who He now hides from
But he is found
And drag him to the light
Suddenly warmth
Suddenly Strength
He gains back his will
And his black eyes can see
Putrid Flesh Rejuve

Hello!

I know that there are times where I often say how I don't like sharing things any of my very amazing watchers would find boring. And I do apologise if whilst reading the following, you find it un-relatable or uninteresting to you.

This is something I would like to share with people, maybe to give an idea of how to deal with things or to show others something you can overcome.

There are people who told me about the things I couldn’t do. They told me that I cannot do what I want to achieve. One of my biggest problems is that I listened to them and I believed them. I kept telling myself I cannot do this, they’re right. I also asked myself; why am I doing this if I cannot do it? If I cannot achieve what I want to at the end then why am I working towards it? I was living in the shadow of a girl who couldn’t believe in herself. A girl who believed she couldn’t do it because some told her she couldn’t; the shadow of the girl who believed the naysayers. I didn’t have an answer to why I believed all of that. I guess I just thought I know nothing so whenever I was told “No.” I thought they were right and I was wrong. Told myself “I’m never going to be able to be who I want to be or who I aspire to be.”  

Until one day I thought, how do they know any better? What makes me believe them so much? If they knew me in such a way they would believe in me even with the obstacles I have instead of telling me “You know what. You can’t, even though you try. You just won’t be able to.” I don’t think it was their fault that they have told me such things, I think it is my fault that I have actually listened and believed them.

When you have so much fire inside you and someone tells you “you can’t.” You’ll just laugh at them because they don’t know what you’re up against. You know yourself and what you’re capable of. And you realise that’s your repellent against such people. The fire inside you and the passion will make everyone else’s “No.” mean nothing to you.

I think at the time, I believed because I didn’t want it that much anyway. I didn’t see it in front of me. However, now I have a very clear vision of who and what I want to be. I’ve even written about it a couple of times, who I want to be and what I am capable of achieving. My clear vision now tells me exactly what to do, who am I and why do I do what I love.  I know what I love and what I am supposed to do. Because I know, because I see it in front of me I have become untouchable. No one can tell me what I cannot do anymore. I know it’s not the people who are so negative around you I know it’s not them. It’s the sounds in my own head. It’s me, it’s my fear and I will not allow that fear to consume me anymore. It will push me to get where I want to be.

So now when you ask, I actually know what I want in my life and if anyone tells me I can’t. It doesn’t matter because I see it in front of me I just have to reach out for it, and you know what; I am reaching out for it. It’s just a little bit until I get there. Just a little bit and I will get there.  

I guess I wrote this to say that cancelling the negative voices and letting the fear be your guide to success is the way to go. Let your fear drive you to do what you want and not drive you away from doing it. Also the passion you have to anything will make you get through it.

Thank you.

Know your song
You will never suffer  

Your music
Walk in its rhythm

The sun was  
Bright and cheery
The souls could not be  
Bothered - the sun’s beauty

They had no music  
No rhythm  
No place to take them
No soul

The pianist  
Knew not
How to deal with
Those
Who got no soul

Do they not
Deserve  
To live too?  

So the search begins
For the music within  
Music  
In the trees  
The leaves and bark

They must find their own
Music
The soul of things  
They must find their soul
Vivacious Melody
Music is the soul of life and vice versa.
There's an Arabic song, sung by Fairouz written by Gibran Khalil Gibran in which it says. "Give me the flute and sing, for singing is the secret of existence."
Music is on our soul

Thank you! Hope you enjoy my piece :D

So far
No one walking in
If they got closer
See the flowers

Every rose its thorns
A place called home
Beautiful – frightening

Can’t see the beauty
Ugliness only
Only wasps
No butterflies

Darkness flicker light
The moat is the pond in which
Water lilies lie

The the the thorns – here

Ugly bricks are
Glass windows
The terrible moss
Is the beautiful garden
The copper colour

The smell of what was down
Can you find the
Love within at all
Look at the brick work
Walk in the same road
Her footsteps – the love

She walked in yellow
As bright – the sun
Purest agape
Time has made her different
Different different

I was always afraid to post this poem. I don't know why, maybe because it holds a big part of me in it. Now I know there's nothing to be afraid of, we're all people and we all feel. It's very normal to post such a piece that maybe no one would understand but myself.

If you are reading this and have read my poem or about to then thank you ever so dearly for taking the time out of your life to read my work.

Any feedback or comments are very welcome! :heart:

I'm so excited about this! I'm creating a poetry club in my home town called Paper Rebels. :D I would love it if anyone got any suggestions for the club! So far it's just a community for poets who want to learn and build themselves as writers. A place I always wanted to be a part of. :la:

I had not heard of that show. The premise did sound interesting.

My current thing is Manifest. Hopefully they don’t ruin that show like they did with Lost, changing writers every season and destroying any continuity.
