‘I have felt the depths of your resolve’

I have felt the depths of your resolve. How shallow they are in my hands. How feeble your attempts to adjoin nonsense. Those non-whimsical attempts of control your media besmears, how they dispel the rumours of your soul and crown them fact. For if I was never a good man, a decent person, or a kind soul, then where do you rank? You took lives. You shattered families. And all the while you thought you were in the right. You were only confused of the meaning of wrong. And a brother in arms, is a brother in all. But you are no brother of mine. Yet I extend my hand in grief of the souls you freed of their vessels, I extend my hand in the pity I sense of you.


‘Curious George’ Review

'Curious George' on IMDb

You are never too young to know what love and friendship is. A couple of hours ago I was watching this animated movie with a very special 2.5 year old. As George was being taken away from ‘Man in the Yellow Hat’, this toddler started wincing, his eyes starting welling up. I started watching him instead of the movie, only to learn all too well that he knew that George was being taken against his will from someone he loved. As I held him and began to comfort him, my faith and belief that love and friendship are universal emotions, innate in all of us, no matter what creed, faith, or age, was more than restored, it was enlightened. As George was reunited with the ‘Man in the Yellow Hat’, the smile returned to his face and my heart melted.

If you are ever in need of having your faith in humanity restored, have a movie night with a toddler, they are much wiser than us.

For giving me a night I will never forget, for showing the beauty of love and friendship, and for having the ability to make a child enlighten an adult, I rate this film 10/10


‘I am of twenty-one years of age’

I am of twenty-one years of age
I have never had my first subtle kiss
Alone, immersed with love, but of no sage…
I come to disregard, I come to this.

I walk an invisible distance
I walk with a calloused soul;
Years, hours, minutes, all of an instance
My life, darkened, has taken its toll.

Cars unwind, a windy road…
No matter how fast, they pass too slow
Paralyze(d) emotions, it can be an ode
I live this life,…but I live it so.

It takes time to leave this world away
My wonder is continuous, my wonder awry;
My heart pounds, but words cannot say
In sequence to the sunrise, my heart cannot deny…
