There are three people standing on the top of a mountain. This mountain overlooks humanity and its entirety. They can see time pass, from the cavemen to the astronauts that went to the moon, to the scientist today curing cancer. One of them looks up at the sky and says: "Breathtaking." The only girl of the three tilts her head up too and sighs lightly. She closes her eyes and searches blindly for a hand of the second man. Their hands intertwine and she guides his body closer to her. Finally the last one of the trio aims his eyes at the sky too. There they are, three people, on the top of a mountain, having the possibility to see humanity and its entirety, yet choosing to look at the sky. They...

It was New Year's eve and it felt sad.

He wasn't going out tonight. His friends would drink themselves senseless. He had no problem with that of course, on the contrary he loved to see his friends do that - they would get high and start acting funny. But he would not go tonight.

Was it the girl he was texting hadn't replied yet? Could be, but he dismissed it. He never cried at the farewell when all his classmates had cried their hearts out forming little salty pools. Neither had he felt anything when his grandpa passed away or his girlfriend broke up with him. He was never attached to people, he blamed his brains for that. Emotionless, he called himself. He hated all those mushy things...

Hi there, 2015. You're close to home now. Bring vodka.

I will not make a list of goals. I will not make plans. I will not wait that dreams come true magically. That would be the simple and unrealistic way.

2014, you were awful and one of the most difficult years I've lived. And trust me, I've had horrible ones.

Still, as if you were giving me a push to continue, you also opened the door to know myself even more, to move forward and to find wonderful people in that road. Those people are with me today (in different ways), watching you finally go.

But I'm done with goals lists.

Instead, I propose myself to let the new year surprise me.
My goal will not be one thing. The goal is to...

The Geometry

A whole year lies ahead
and a bunch of promises made to myself

A blank spherical mind
with many scattered words

with the tangent that fear makes
of
unfulfilled expectations, guilt and doubts

Yet amidst these
there's a powerful shinning line
of Hope
that cuts across them all.

UNREACHABLE

So deep, unimaginably so
So lost, undesirably so
So given, relentlessly so
So misunderstood, knowledgeably so
So far, unbelievably so.

I am so...
Beyond life, beyond death
I walk so...
No one can trace my path
I speak so...
With no words, no language
I fly so...
No wings, no clouds
I see so...
No eyes, visibly invisible
I cry so...
No tear, just the voice within.

I have crossed the line,
No more boundaries,
No more frontiers,
Deeper than my mind can judge,
I am unreachable.

WORDS: JASMINE, BUTTON, DIGNIFIED, TWISTED (What an exciting choice of words Rebecca... thank you! :)

Dear world,

We never notice it, do we? Surrounded and fooled by such people every time...

We look at those neatly pressed and buttoned down shirts, their confident eyes, deceptive postures, soft hands and we assume their personality is as dignified as their looks are.

What we don't notice is their instincts. Nothing in this terribly transient time ruled world is permanent. People change. People change all the time. For better or worse, depends on their instincts.

You see, people's characters change, but their instincts don't. Like to believe it or not, there are alw...

Perhaps the greatest discovery of a man lies in knowing himself....

When you take a moment to look outside the window, you see people milling about in the streets, going about their businesses; oblivious.

When you take a moment to look at some old pictures, you see faces smiling at the camera, posing a happy memory for decades to come; blissful.

When you take a moment to reflect upon your own life, you see things going haywire, like pieces of jigsaw puzzle spread beyond your own reach; benighted.

So when you look at another 'intimidating' person, why do you choose to let your mind fool you into believing they are any different? When you look at another person, you should actually see a ...
