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

Literature
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

Literature
Life-Nil
What do I need
Living as I should
Made of greed
Unsatisfied - what left
Essentials - possessed
Auxiliary - silenced
Euphoria rummage
Contentment

Literature
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?

My language

Felt secure

My Ease
Please notice when I talk it’s out of love
Everything out of love
I wish out of love
Miss out of love
Nice to you you and you
Please notice I care
Cannot be there
Please notice
I try out of love
Can’t see me
Be with me
Talk to me
I ask out of love
Be nice nice nice
From my heart heart heart
Please notice
Out of love love love

Literature
Sooner To Know
I’m pretty ruthless  
You wish you’d known sooner
I have fangs
I can hurt you with them
Knowing me ruins plans
I’m mean
When they ask I warn them
I could be their worst villain
They even say I’m the next Stalin
But even he kept saving
I’m different I go all in
I told you I’m terrible
Got no time for stalling
A death trap waiting to happen
When they first see me
I seem nice
But when you got trouble with me
Cold as ice
Believe it or not
Poetry isn’t just words
It’s an art you don’t got
Mess with me in what you know
Not in what I do for life
I can use a gun
But I’d rather not
You’re not worth the bullet
You see it’s no fun
Evil eyes I hide
Underneath the sweet smile
Now all can see my ride
All because one denied
Be careful of my wrath
Now you know sooner
I can be ruthless if I want to
Let it be a known rumour

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.

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
Obscure Star
Thank you for reading :aww:
