The Whispers Around

Preamble

It’s already a new year and I know it has been a while since I posted anything here but I’ve been around and the small break I’ve had (it actually seems much longer to me) provided me with the opportunity to take a back seat and look at things differently. I’ve been able to learn quite a lot in the process and I’m making a few adjustments here and there which I believe will make me a better person and a better writer while at it. We are always on the learning curve so let’s see how it goes…

The Whispers Around

I always saw them around and they saw me as well. We always had questions about each other but being Me; they had to try and find answers. They thus threw in their suggestions and I guess my way of life irked them, or something of the sort. That feeling of anger tried to force its way through me but somehow I was still calm.

I was already trending around town and their whispers are actually right, though not today: They’re still playing catch up. I’m already smiling as I write this and I’m on my way to laughter. They’re coming from a negative place but here I am heading to the positive…

I think of where I want to be and it seems I’m already living the dream but it’s just on a different scale. I‘m eliciting reactions and that is enough proof of my existence. Through their whispers they try to bring me down but instead they help me get closer to my destiny (and it was at this point that he realized it is not about one’s will…)

All hail to their whispers; they’ve brought me back to the paper…

I Am (As Good as I am Bad)

I am who they say I am. I am all that they say. I am, and I cannot hate myself for who I am. I love myself. I have to love myself…

They raise all sorts of definitions and whether right or wrong, they still refer to me; I am as good as I am bad and so all of it might just be right…

The mind games provide the insight and they prove themselves as worthy individuals. The thoughts get in a run in of some sorts and in the end they lead to the light…

They help him see his greatness and in turn he realizes their greatness as well – because of their guidance and direction. The challenges they put up made him smile…

It is all true: whatever is on your mind, what you have heard, what you’ve been told, what you have seen and what you’re going to see and hear. I am…

He Was…

He was there among them and they got to see him. He was one of them but something about him struck them. He stood out and this was brought about by his difference. They saw how he acted and it either excited or disturbed them. His actions were the trigger. He was the trigger…

They tried to lead him in a certain way and at times he tried to follow but at other times even with the will there, it just didn’t happen. When he followed them he failed miserably on their part but it is by doing so that he saw he actually didn’t need to. He was best himself…

They will keep talking and thinking about him but it is their duty. As you can see, these are the results and they truly are; magnificent. He is aware that good and bad things will happen but that there’s always a silver lining. It will be said that he is this and that but when he leaves, many will be left wondering who he was…

He is interested in himself and that is why he cannot blame them for their interest in him as well – He is quite the case study. He is, and one day he will become he was to later become he…

The Fire is On

He began to feel the heat and judging from previous experiences he knew what it was. He could hear its whispers as it called out his name. It became louder by the minute and he became drawn in eventually…

There had been signs along the way and the thrill that he was now feeling confirmed his destination. Others around him felt the heat as well and they gave their valid inputs. He starts looking at the possible happenings but he knows he can’t really figure it out, and the excitement builds up from there…

A series of recent events are played back in his mind and they inform the revelations. He calls out his name and it invokes a certain sense of pride. He is surely getting where he needs to be and that is why he keeps looking over his shoulder…

He tries to remain calm as it burns and the reactions that come with it create beautiful results. He knows he needs to feel the heat to grow and it becomes a manifestation of his actions. His mind is always disturbed for many are those that wish to put the fire out. They however provide invaluable knowledge in the process for this fire still manages to survive the extinguishing attempts. The fire makes him feel alive and it brings a whole different person into the picture. It is there to bring light into the world and we should all pray that it keeps burning…

Keep in Mind

They were really disturbing him now and he had to ask for help. Help did come and it came in the right way, unexpectedly. The rush was exciting and it propelled him to greater heights. His actions raised all sorts of reactions and at times these reactions distracted him for he followed along the path of expectation. There was real danger of getting lost but he knew himself…

The realization came and once again he saw the confusing nature of his actions. There was a real difference between his actions and thoughts (Someone else must be having fun). He kept in mind that he had to always expect the unexpected and this proved to be quite the adrenaline pump whenever those moments arose…

There were questions that were raised in his mind;                                           

  • What is to become of their interpretation?
  • Where does it leave them?
  • How does it affect his interactions with them?  

They reacted based on what they perceived it to be and they are their true reflections. He actually did lead them there. And once again they proved to be of great help to him – He has figured out that he cannot relent no matter what and the only way to make sure of it is to always remember…

The Light in Everything

Wings were being flapped and the journey was beginning to take shape. The smiles were recognized for he knew as well. The destination became clearer and he had to go for it. He had to identify with himself as his realignment edged closer…

Liberation was the feeling and the feeling was great. He was at a different place. All those things that were said became and he saw the power of pronouncement. It was all happening right before his very eyes. It was another step in the long walk to freedom…

There were many like him and others couldn’t help but wonder. They looked at them and all sorts of conclusions came up. They actually didn’t know what to say but they went ahead and said something. A lot of what was said was headed in the direction of shame and discredit but in ignorance laid the true well of their speech. They just couldn’t tell the difference…

He heeded the calls and he was where he needed to be. The different pronouncements made by them provided a basis for reflection and in turn turned out to contain revelations. He was not like anyone else: how could he be sad of that? He learnt to see the light in everything…

We are all unique and we are together to bring out our different experiences which add on to make up what we call life. This is in pursuit of a fulfilling life experience. We all need to embrace our differences but regardless of whatever route we take we will still have made a difference…

As They Come…

They’ve launched their attacks and they’ve come at me with what I already had in mind. They give me the pleasure of being right – how cheap they are. They’re trying to attack me with what I’m doing but I know what I’m doing. The truth hurts is for those who don’t accept it…

They make my days for sure as they provide me with the ingredients for creation. I have to love them. I wait eagerly to see how they react as I keep going. They prove their cowardice in the way they act. If only they would come directly…

They tell themselves that they do it for our own good but deep down they know very well that they are out to get something off of it. The term jealousy is not far off. Not bad my friends, not bad at all. They serve a purpose as well and I will remain forever grateful for their contribution…

I see them and I patiently wait to see who among them makes a move. Once an attack happens I proceed to make a link which then informs my reactions and actions. They keep growing in number and I thus try to stay ready as they come…
