Rivers Flow

Rivers flow from my soul, forget we not the cold of rot.
Rivers flow in streets, forget we all bleed you see.
All the unseen have different names; but they all bring the same shame!
Pray for one it is said; why pray when actions speak instead?
Thunderous sounds did break the night, broken bodies, broken plights.
I say to those whose ways are to seek death and decay, cowards you are and cowards you remain!
Courage it takes to embrace the difference in speech and perhaps in all the unseens.
At least hands are clean as enough blood has spilled to be filled many lifetimes of those killed!

Thankful

I’m thankful for endings because they give me memories.
I’m Thankful for beginnings because they give me opportunities.
I am thankful for the clouds that bring rain on the days that I need to cry.
I’m thankful for the rain that washes away my tears so that I can breathe again.
I’m thankful for those tears because they are words I cannot find. The words that are most sacred and must be kept private.
I’m thankful for the clouds on a sunny day. They remind me my shadow is always near... sometimes that shadow is my only friend.
I’m thankful for the sun because it shines amongst all things, reminding me that I need to look for the silver lining.
And thankful for the sunsets that war...

Kevin

My everything -

You were every dream,
I ever dreamed.
before I dared dream them...
Behind every smile,
before I smiled.
Behind every skipped heartbeat,
Every shuddered breath.
You were the prince I dreamed of saving me,
until you became the man that is husband,
You made every silence into song,
and gave every love song meaning.

Understood

I used to wander in my own mind,
as a teenager who imagined
my life was not mine.
Those insipid fights and for what?
Because I didn't get what I want?
I told myself then; I am a good kid.
Truth was and still is... I was
however being a child meant my mind
as my acts were very in fact infantile.
I used to blame my mum.
My anger twisted my head and heart some.
I convinced myself from her love.
I convinced myself, we both were no good.
Now it is me; I stand where she stood,
my tears cannot stop before
as mum left this world;
all her pijn and agony gone!
I stand as she stood, Mum..
I have fully understood.

In Kind?

For those who suffer from without
to face misery en battery day to day,
When is it you get to say;

I too bleed claret just like you en like you; I feel pijn, fear at the change en differences too! Unlike you; I can look beyond color en tone to understand en know, we all need love en our places to call home.

The canvas of my bed
is amber and it’s red,
covered in poodles
and fuzzy blankets!
For everyday I get to
wake up this way, I
have to give thanks; yet!

I Know

If only you knew
but the fact is you do.
I speak it to you
everyday and with every
breath and fiber too.
You know me
I know you as well
it is how it has become
Do you know what
it is that you have
evolved into?
If you feel then I know
your very person is
that which I cherish
above my own soul...
The very thing I shelter
from is now the supreme
reason I do not wither.

BEST FRIENDS, TIL DEATH DO US PART

You have known me forever
There are times you know me better
Than myself. Your remember
All the times we were together

You've seen me in all my masks
You love me with or without them
It makes no difference to you
Because you have known who I am

We have seen each other good
We've made each other feel real bad
At times inseparable
At times broken, far apart, sad

Even when they'd break my heart
He'd break them for making me cry
Jealousy will never show
But he makes sure my eyes are dry

You would never leave my side
At least you haven't left so far
I don't ever want to lose you
Only you have seen all my scars

                                    *Thank You, Lettrs!*

                                Here I began my journey

                        Here I began to make people smile.

                         Here I've grown to be somebody

                             Here I've grown to thrive.

                                            Here I am.

I thought I understood them all this while.

I wasn't even close.

And when you don't understand something, you don't see it the way it is
you see it how you want to see it
And my god, how wrong it can be

Alhamdulillaah syukur for this realisation. I am so grateful

Now I get it
Understanding is NOT the same as knowing
It's way, way beyond that

Could you help me?

I am still smiling for my secrets within.
I do not hide my aches nor pain
It is like a cleansing rain
I have only to utter a sound
no words need be said
and yes, it is profound
the depth you have reached
as if in a whirlwind
it all feels in a spin but
in the end...we are a begin.

I haven't thanked you yet,
For how you reminded me.
Life is worth fighting for.

I haven't thanked you yet,
For the difference you made.
When I was fading away.

I haven't thanked you yet,
And, maybe I never will.
But, on here;
With paper and pen,

My heart I'll pour out;
And somehow,
I'm hoping these words will find you.

Reminding you,
You too
Difference Maker,

Are a world changer.

Thank You.

I have been writing lettrs for over 4 years now.

In one way this network has changed so much, with people from 89 countries.  In another way lettrs has stayed the same...with a simple idea to power the world’s mobile letters.

Thanks for those souls and poets, friends and family, who have helped us deliver our difference to the world, one letter at a time.
