Hide and seek me darling! ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝโœจ
โ€ข
We are empty houses
Perplexed sand dunes 
Paper thin stars 
Crying seashells
Begging to be seen
Begging to be heard 
You and I are characters
In this ever changing story 
Hide and seek me 
Let us go beyond these waters
Let us pierce through this darkness

Sleep 
Come here
Lay beside me
Sleep in my arms 
Before my soul tires
Before my spirit leaves
Hold me 
Now that strength still
Lingers in my arms
A million years wonโ€™t be enough
To transverse our convergence 
Sleep in my arms darling
Sleep

Stop waiting
For that last perfect piece
Stop waiting
For permission to live
Try laughing more
Dead people donโ€™t laugh 
Hide and seek your inner child 
When in doubt ask
A thousand and one questions 
Make no apologies for 
Being an anomaly 
Donโ€™t be afraid of being bold and colourful
You might be the only rainbow one sees all day

Letโ€™s talk about this thing called GUILT, shall we? . .. ๐Ÿ’โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ƒ
โ€ข
Sometimes, we throw caution to the wind or do things we are not so proud of. (I know, I do. ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ) Afterwards, we dance around different emotions like anger, regret, disappointment and the ever so popular one. .. guilt! 
It is good to realize our mistakes and learn a lesson or two from them. I think, sometimes we even need to suffer the consequences of our actions. However, being continuously torn apart by our own guilt and judgement isnโ€™t something that should drag on. 
Sometimes, we refuse to chase away the unresolved clouds of our wrong-doings, even after we have suffered the consequences and have been forgiven by others. 
We hide under the umbrella of an invisible action. We keep trying to retrace our steps, we replay the events trying to see where we messed up. We keep asking ourselves how things would have turned out. We ask questions like what if I. ...?, maybe I shouldโ€™ve. .., if only I was. .. (I know I do ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ)
I wonder why forgiving oneself is more of a task than forgiving others.
Arenโ€™t we worthy of our own forgiveness? ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿค”
Like the old saying goes; โ€˜Why cry over spilled milk?โ€™. ๐Ÿฅ› 
When all is said and done we have to learn from our mistakes and try to forgive ourselves.
There is only one way to go. .. (you guessed right) - FORWARD!
Like my Spanish friends call it - ADELANTE! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ‘ฃ

May you have a new reason
To get up 
To keep pushing
To keep fighting 
May your pain and burdens
Fall away like autumn leaves
May strength and resilience
Caress your soft skin 
Like the cool breeze
May fresh peace find you 
May you find your healing
May you find your way home

What have I become?
.
Some days
I cannot help but wonder
What I have become
They have thrown this darkness
At me and squeezed out 
Every ounce of innocence from me
What have I become? 
A shadow of myself?
A restless wanderer?
A troubled leaf shaking 
From all the noise? 
A mind overwhelmed by the 
Fantasy of unconditional love
Or a being void
Of any emotion or humanity? 
A once full but now
Kicked down, rusted, empty barrel?
What have I become? 
A fire yet to be ablaze?
A fire waiting to be rekindled?
A spirit waiting to be reinvigorated?
A burnt down house
Waiting to become home? 
Or a mere space waiting to be filled
By an inexistent presence?
A yearning soul in the quest for life
But never really living?
I really wonder 
What have I become?

My first time at an architectural exhibition. I have to confess, at first I wasnโ€™t very excited about going since it was the Biennale architectural exhibition, not the art one. When I got there, I was pleasantly surprised. It was absolutely amazing! ๐Ÿ˜โœจ
