Pain after Pain

Pain after Pain

by Marites Avisado-Responte

If we could just live without pain
We could be spotless but plain
If life is perfectly paved and we find no offender
We’ll come out unscathed, but no character.
Though brokenness pierces woes
Tougher we become, as pain blows.
Though the wound stings and scars us to be bitter
Forgiveness sprouts from a humble surrender.
Bruises, we bear
Weakness, we bare
Undaunted spirit, we dare…

For the heart roars with poetry when it hits a turning point…

Why Self-Love?

 

Why Self-Love?

 by Marietta Geraldino

Is self-love a luxury?

Or is it a necessity?

Get a grip of your reality

A perfect self is just fantasy.

Self-love, self-acceptance

That, you can count as victory. 

It can set you  free from a haunting past. 

It can tear the wall of countless hurts. 

It can free self-doubts  of a troubled  heart. 

Nurture self-kindness

Cultivate self-compassion

Claim joy, bestow forgiveness!

Embracing your flaws, loving yourself

will make your spirit simply  radiate.
