The birth of a General…

The soundless breeze strokes the bloodied skin as veins bulged out showing the existence of the ever pulsing heart. In the midst of clouded confusion and raging sounds of battle cries and the clashing of steel an unfamiliar calm, settles upon him.
Something, didn’t feel right, it felt scary calm for him. Time slowed down for him and barely any sound reached him. It felt like cotton filled his ears. In front of him, his current opponent looked like a moving statue that was filled with nothing but blood lust. But slow he was. No matter how he looked around, nothing changed, he no longer felt fear, he was calm. And with that, his sight was born anew. He saw it all, a bigger picture. It was no longer just himself anymore. He saw the enemy’s movement and their own. Patterns and secrets of battle, laid on his feet. He was no commander, but he knew for them to survive, tables had to turn. Him alone will not be enough. But it wasn’t the time to be worried about that, only what was in front of him mattered. Obediently, he steeled his heart and let his body follow his instincts. There seemed to be a flow, a current that he sunk in as he faced his opponents. His fatigue, fear… All of it was gone. And a fire was lit, a small one but a fire non the less, compared to the size of the battlefield. Around him, in the small area of his battalion, his allies felt the change when they laid their eyes on him. He was pushing the enemies back. His ferocity brought fear upon those in front of him.

His energy, lit the fires in the hearts of the warriors, and now came the time of this wild fire to spread in the dense forest of flesh and clashing steel. In earnest, together, they endeavoured to farther their stand in the battlefield. This time the tides of war favoured them. These men, these warriors believe in strength, and when they recognise it, they will follow. And as they saw the man, they knew he would be the kind to even wage war on hell and never waver

Alone.

Hi guys, sorry about the title, it’s not really about being alone but being in need of more than just… Food for thought, have you ever wondered how the first man, human, animal, being, had their first adventure? To discover beyond the familiarity of their current circumstances of life. My take of it is *need*, need for more than those mental walls built up by fear, fear of something new and ununderstable. However, most of the time fear is trampled over by a thing called curiosity. Questions like “what am I? Why am I here and is there another like me?” Solitary is good really, a time of reflection and self. However, something like companionship, or at the very least, the knowledge of an existence of another being somewhere is always reassuring. Now we might not see it but spend a couple of weeks without seeing or hearing anything move, breath, it might drive you to insanity or even worse. You’ve watched the news read the papers, you’ve seen it all, suicide is a result of basically a being not able to connect. I bet if I was to get researching, I’ll find some animals forfeited there lives and wasting away because of simply being alone. Can you believe that hundreds of thousands of lightyears NASA has searched and yet earth seems to be the only one with life, am not say the planets can’t hold life. Am saying we don’t have neighbours. And i don’t know about you but when my cooking oil has finished, at 10pm at night… Well thank the universe I have a neighbour. It’s kinda lonely, am I right? You tell me.

Like and comment, I want to get your thoughts on this #earth

The Flight Experience

Have you ever experienced flight, it’s not like you haven’t flown before. Am simply asking, have you ever experienced flight before? Several hundred feet above sea level. Where moisture gathers to make that rain that we all need despite sheltering ourselves from it. Except up there, the clouds actually look like heaven. An infinite horizon of sun kissed flooring of clouds at the stratosphere. The true sight of the gates that take you to a blissful paradise. With light orange rays of the sun set gracing the view that has forever been desired by all, a sight that shames even the statue of liberty because nothing says liberty, like freedom. We were so jealous that the birds get to see that everyday we had to get us a piece of that action. I advice you all readers, fly at least once.

Note:if you have any constructive criticism please do comment.

I thought that you had my back.

Uh…
I rack my mind trying to find where I went wrong
Was I choosy, was I just selfish?
Putting my thoughts, my wants above all?
All this time I thought that you had my back.
Blinded by the thought that you would be there to catch me when I slip.
Guess I was just cheating myself thinking you’ll be there every step.
And in return I would to the same when my time came.
All this time, I actually thought that you had my back.
What a dumb move Ted. You need to remember, in this world everyone think of no one but number one, and you ain’t it.
You are freaking liability. Anchor that just drags people behind.
I bet you didn’t even realise it.
It’s time to wake up and face fate.
There’s no time to shade tears and self pity.
All this time, damn, you never had my back.
It’s to wake and move on… Prepare for the road up ahead.
It’s not gonna be an easy road.
A loner, but remember, forgive but never forget.
Your past doesn’t define you. Forge on a path that they’ll never forget. For now It’s truly you against the world.
I will never forget, you never had my back.

She…

On a cold evening, she seats by the window.
Casting her gaze on the tattooed pages absorbing every bit of knowledge she can.
Occasionally glancing at the horizon as the sun set. Embers of a dying light creep through the cracks of dark cotton like clouds.
She shifts her posture causing her cardigan to fall of on her left shoulder revealing her scared ebony skin… Damn she’s irresistible…
She….

Dare To Dream Bigger

I pose this question to you all. Where does your imagination end? Ambitions, dreams, Hope… Do they end once you’ve finally gotten that which you wanted? Is that it? Nothing more? Well, I suppose that journey must have been tiring, exhausting even. Yeah now just relax and enjoy that feeling, accomplishment, entitlement… right?

Am gonna speak my mind here for a bit. Am not saying I have accomplished much but that is hardly important in this post. I want to remind you of the good old days, back when you watched your first Star Wars movie and your mind was blown to bits. Eh! Get it now? ThisĀ  world has too many of the same professions that the possibility of you being recognized is highly diminished.

However, out there, the possibilities are endless. You could be anything you want…anything. Hero, villain, Business Mogul… adventurer, and so on. And now you are wondering why I would suggest such a dream when we can’t even send a hundred people to the moon and back. Now here my answer… we can’t. Anticlimactic ain’t it.

Well a simple solution to it all. Once you’ve finished enjoying that accomplished feeling that you so deserve, get back on that desk, go back to the drawing, because you never know, your work could be the next thing used as the stepping stone to that space adventure which will lead to more adventure. “Following the light of the sun, we left the Old World” Christopher Columbus

Ted’s thoughts

The world is wounded by man’s actions. It thrives in and widens by little bacteria with their own agenda but the same goals, bacteria like lies, propaganda, conspiracies, hate, racism, tribalism, segregation of any kind, as long as it begets pain and devastation. And when a person tries to eradicate these bacteria, the effort has always proven useless and dangerous to the unlucky heroes to be. Infact their actions tend to be used to fuel the problems. What is there left to do… How do you save yourself when you always get in the way…

I don’t have a title for this so read

Hey hey… Am back… Sorry I took so long… Writer’s block.. Anyway if you guys have any suggestions for the title, write up… I’ll do it right away šŸ‘ˆšŸ‘

Boom! The sound lingers in the air like like a bomb in an unending hallway.

Boom boom! Again pulsing as it vibrates to my ear. Only louder each turn

Time slows to a standstill yet hasten its pace to cause a blur reality.

Eyes meet and time froze. A second maybe more felt eternal yet felt right to be in that moment.

Excitement wells in the realization of an undiscovered adventure about to unfold as I stare at her. One I honestly wouldn’t want to miss.

It only gets better when you recognise the same thing in her as a smile draws itself making her all the more beautiful.

Alas! A longing stirs for the realization that the moment is about to pass and a story, a fairy tale perhaps averted. A sad possibility,but one easily fixed.

And so a new book begins.

I walk up to her and say, “hello… Am  Ted… ” 

JealousĀ 

Am jealous of the rain

That fall upon your skin,

It’s closer than my hand have been,

Oh am jealous of the rain…

Am jealous of the light,

That makes your day so bright,

Yeah, i wish i could be the reason for this,

But, I look to you for my light. 

I thought that I’d be done, though,

My heart breaks in silent, as I seat through the night’s breeze.

And I thought that I would move on, but, I ended up giving in.

Cause you all I want, and I knew from the very first moment.

I feel like I lost my track and I can’t get back on,… Hhhhh…

My tribute to labrinth’s song, Jealous 

Hey, you…Ā 

Your eyes reminds me of the time before dawn… When the sun is about to come up with the promise of a new adventure. When the first ray of light emerges yet the stars shine bright still and the memory of yesterday remains fresh in the mind. The reflection on them shows how you see the world, kind, warm, new at every turn, one could only get lost in them even when trying to be careful. 

Those succulent lips can be so distracting when you talk… With a hint of a smile every time. Gets me to wonder what’s so amusing. And the smile that comes with it, for a moment… Just in that exact moment, I could swear that time stops and it seems like it will never go away. Like that smile is meant to last forever, as it should… 

And your skin… Clearly well taken care of. Also-…. 

I walk in to the room and find her on her computer looking all engrossed in her work. I seat in a chair across her at the table… She’s wearing a simple white t-shirt and a pair of fitting jeans, but she is barefoot. I smirk at that observation. She raises her head to see who it was. With the familiar face staring back at her, she smiles and goes back to her computer 

Me: hey, what are you working on? 

Her: oh, just some stuff… 

Me: take a coffee break, you look like you’re about to tech yourself to insomnia. 

Her: just a bit more and then we can have as much coffee as you want. 

Me: mmm very tempting, but I know, you. You won’t stop… You’re work will still be here in 20 minutes 

She looks up, she knows I won’t stop. 

Her: fine…  What do you have in mind?… 

Mmmmm where was I, Ah!  Your skin… 

Right. Clearly well taken care of could even give the Queen of Sheba a run for her money. Your skin shade is that of a the chocolate specially made from the factory of Willy Wonker in the pool of chocolate and the waterfall of milk creating a new shade that is especially, tantalising. 

Your mind, how you think, always amuses me. Am always eager to see what you would do or how you would react to some situations. Even in the dark you always seem to know how to come out of it. And when you are down, know that I will be there every step on your way back…  I may not have a shining armor but I’ll be your huntsman.

I wish I could continue but am lacking of words at this point. I have more to say but I would rather say it in person.
