“Poetry is what happens when your mind stops working, and for a moment, all you do is feel.”

-Atticus

For my first blog post for the month of November 2017, I’m going to share with you those poems that I’ve highlighted and saved while I was reading Ms. Rupi Kaur’s latest collection of poems.

In which by the way these poems have been a very inspiring and mind-boggling one to read. And it’s like getting into a glimpse into the poet’s vulnerability, and because of that, she was able to flow such thoughts in a writing that had resulted into creating such poems that a lot of modern women can truly related themselves into.

Furthermore, it was very thoughtful of her, to dedicate it to her dear mother – the woman who was braved enough to leave behind her family and country in order to pursue a better life with her husband and children to a place that is culturally different than what she was used to.

In addition to that, ever since Rupi Kaur had been a child, she had always looked up to her mother as a source of strength and inspiration in becoming the kind of person that she wanted to be. Someone who is independent and knows her worth as a woman.

Sometimes, I truly admire candid people. Why? For they are sometimes the brave one’s. That if they show such real concern about some people. They themselves will tell it to that person. And not let the others do the job for them. So if there’s someone out there that does something that we do not like. Please, have the guts to tell it to their face BUT in a gentle and kind manner. I’m sure they’re also brave enough to accept such criticism. It just doesn’t seem nice acting you’re okay in front of that person that concerns you, and when he/she turns their back, that’s the time that you’ll fret about them. So they didn’t know that they’ve actually done something that was already disturbing. And that act alone doesn’t show such real concern.

Moreover, it saddens me that there are some people out there who keeps on complaining. Always remember, that no matter how hard life truly is, just think that we are still blessed. Of course, we all have our struggles, and at the end of the day, we are also the one’s who will be facing it. So be strong. And don’t spend each day grumbling. Don’t you know that WHEN YOU THINK MORE OF WHAT YOU HAVE, THE LESS YOU’LL COMPLAIN OF WHAT YOU DON’T HAVE? So be GRATEFUL EVERY SINGLE DAY. Plus, don’t forget to START THE DAY WITH A BIG SMILE! ๐Ÿ˜€
