Dance

Doomed to dance the same routine

Like a marionette in an empty theatre

Trapped

Ghostly applause

Echoing

At my bleeding feet

Hello My Lovelies

I love y’all.

Heads up…

I’ve been writing lots and taking lots of hijabi fashion pics, just haven’t had the time to upload since….

I was MOVING CONTINENTS.

Yep.

I moved.

I am officially living back in Kenya, after having liked in the UK for 8 years.

Yup.

I still don’t really believe it myself.

How To Sell Yourself

Bangladeshi wedding at Dhaka

Have you ever thought how much you are worth?

If you had to lay out your best attributes and features one by one.

How much do you think you would be worth?

Not monetary wise – but your worth.

Your value.

Would you be a catch?

If so, what makes you think you ARE a catch?

Are you:

Educated?

Beautiful?

Slim?

Polite?

Humble?

Giving?

Adventurous?

Religious?

Family oriented?

What positive attributes do you think garner more value?

Hmm.

I was thinking about the past.

And how a certain ex, could have been considered by many as a very appealing or, if you will,ย worthyย package.

However, it meant naught to me.

It was like having a massive, juicy burger in your hands.

Yet, you are craving a pizza.

No matter how nice that burger is. You just don’t feel like it.

You want a pizza!

But one persons pizza….is another persons burger.

LOL!

I am beginning to talk in circles and metaphors – eek!

Hehe.

My point is… (yes, there was a point after all. Honest! ;-))…. we all have somebody out there for us.

Because our exact packaging, though not so weighty to some – may be incredibly valuable to others.

So ‘Excellent cook, listener, calm and quiet ‘ could be exactly what someone is looking for.

Whilst ‘ Noisy, adventurous, humorous and loves to travel’ could be somebody else’s dream husband.

Don’t sell yourself short.

You are worthy.

It’s all about a good sales pitch! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sad Posts

I hate it when my poetry goes all dark.

I’m not sad.

Not really.

I have yellow daffodils.

And a miniature pink hippo.

Also, lots of strawberries.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Life is good Alhamdulillah

Something New

Sometimes it’s you.

Its you holding on to what is wrong for you.

If you have tried a million ways to get to your goal.

And each time there are a million and one road blocks.

Maybe, that thing that you want so much,

That goal,

Maybe…

…its not right for you.

Maybe all those road blocks are signs.

Saying: ‘TURN BACK!’,

‘TRY ANOTHER ROUTE!’

Or even:

‘DONT BE SO DAFT!’

Come on.

You gave it your best shot.

Now try something new.
