Four Lines – Sunday Musings

Hello everyone, I meant to write a more profound blog post but I decided to write some short series of poetry consisting of four lines because it’s easier and more fun to write lol. It’s quite a challenge to write everything you wanted to say with just four lines. I enjoyed writing these at the same time it shows what’s currently in my mind these days.

Emotions that you keep so much inside that nobody else knows about. People who carelessly throw mean words will come back to them and haunt them. The feeling of emptiness that you try to fill up with senseless and sometimes harmful stuff will never be enough. Finding your true desire besides working in an 8 hour job. And not wanting the things that society tells us to have.

These are five stories that I tried to sum up with 4 lines.

“IRRELEVANT EMOTIONS”

Overflowing emotions and feelings.
I’m spilling drops barely keeping it in,
created a puddle I’m trying to clean
others might slip but it was never seen.

“PEOPLE WILL REMEMBER HOW YOU SPEAK TO THEM”

You are spitting acid all over,
burning others even with covers.
Now, you’re dripping blood.
Hear their voices— they’re glad.

“FOOD WILL NOT FILL YOU UP”

Stuff yourself with everything in your fridge
but you’ll never fill up the void inside of you
when your mind’s thoughts are in a cage
and when your heart’s color is just blue.

“IT’S WHAT YOU DO AFTER 5PM THAT MATTERS”

Exerting efforts to someone else’s goals
but feels exhausted to work on yours.
It’s the things you do after eight hours,
there you’ll find the true desire of your soul.

“IT’S OKAY TO NOT WANT ‘NORMAL’ THINGS”

People keep telling you to do things;
get a job, find someone, have kids
but do you really want to have these
or the society pressures you to do it?

Spirits of Christmas – Flickering Lanterns

Advertisements

It’s the happiest time of the year, this one corner house is where everyone goes, where every holidays the lanterns hang by the door are greeting guests with its luminous presence and brightest colors. Beyond the lights and cheerful decorations, behind the smiles and niceties is a family living a double life where darkness lies.

Full of bruises and scars, trying very hard to keep the walls standing. Christmas is their day to make it right every year, thinking even just for a day to live peacefully where the lights shine the brightest to blind them even just for a little while.

And it’s like the lanterns hide the deepest secrets of this house, using them as a cover and mask from what’s inside. Every year these lanterns see what truly happens in this house and it feels like these hanging lights absorbs the atmosphere. All of a sudden without anyone looking the lanterns start flickering, like any minute it’s going to explode just like the house and the people inside it. The house with the brightest colors and fancy decorations is now covered up with splash of red and barricade tape.


Spirits of Christmas is a four part series of whimsical stories about Christmas decorations we often use and their hidden stories. The idea and imagination of what it would be like if these said decorations can speak and feel. What it’s like for them when this time of the year comes, does it also feels like Christmas for them?

Spirits of Christmas – Mr. Fine the Pine Tree

It’s the Christmas season and the Christmas tree farm is very alive with all new great pine trees in line.

It’s that time of the year again Pines, people are going to see you and choose one or two of you to take back to their homes, they’re going to decorate you with the finest ornaments and you will be in your greatest shape for all your Christmas’ lifetime. They’re going to choose based on how you look, how green you are, how straight and strong your branches reach out, and most importantly how you smell. Good luck Pine Trees!

Mr. Fine the Pine Tree got picked and got set up with a lovely home, he got the finest lights, garlands, and ornaments. Standing straight and tall with its twinkly lights and glittery dust. People coming over to the house was amazed by Mr. Fine the Pine Tree, day after day he does his job being this amazing Christmas tree that everybody loved. But as days past by, Mr. Fine the Pine Tree was slowly losing his glory, his leaves and branches were falling off, his color was fading, and the freshness of his smell was not evident anymore. Mr. Fine the Pine Tree wasn’t informed about what happens after Christmas ends— he waited. The time to put down the decorations had came, Mr. Fine the Pine Tree was dressed down, he got carried and dragged all the way down, put in a truck and went straight back to the Christmas tree farm.

The worn out Christmas tree was back at the Christmas tree farm, home sweet home for him. Minutes later Mr. Fine the Pine Tree met the Chipper.

Share Your Story 04 | Getting Help

Story #4

I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety and bipolar disorder since I was little. The bipolar just leaves me to be an emotional time bomb. Everything someone does could piss me off and I don’t even understand why. My boyfriend showing me how much it’s a problem is what led me to get help for that. My mind is constantly a war zone when I’m off my meds though. I’m fighting with myself about everything. Anxious to do something but too depressed to do it. Going to school became a struggle for a couple years. I couldn’t work because I had no motivation. I’d go months without showering or doing basic hygienic things which drove my anxiety crazy but I just couldn’t do it. My room would pile up with dishes and clothes and trash and just life. When I did leave my house I was always anxious. What if something happened? What if people don’t like me? What if someone yells at me? What if someone laughs at me? Etc etc. I don’t think I ever really found a way to cope non medically. Like I just found ways around it. I was scared people would laugh at me for being different so I looked and acted the same as everyone else. I was scared someone would yell at me so I was as nice as as nice could get to make people happy. I carry pepper spray for the anxiety of something happening. I’m on Prozac and triliptil (sp?) to control my depression and anxiety and also anger issues, and it helps a lot. It numbs my mind and lets me think individual thoughts instead of everything all at once constantly. My mind isn’t a war zone anymore. I don’t freak out on people for small things anymore. It helps.

Having a mental illness affects our whole lifestyle. I can relate with our story sender about how we forget to take care of ourselves most of the time. I remember being so lazy to get up and eat or take a shower, I didn’t care anymore and I felt so lifeless. I felt exhausted without doing anything. I felt the heaviness of the lack of motivation and will to get up to do simple tasks. This is just one of the many effects of a mental illness to someone. It gets too much, and it doesn’t only affects our own lives but it also affects the lives of our loved ones. If you’re capable, take the initiative to get help. We all need to help ourselves, there are information online where you can find help. Though, I wish there are more resources for mental health, I wish getting help are more accessible to many people. I’m hoping that there are more attention to the needs of this community. Mental illness is real, and we need more accessible healthcare for it.

Thank you to our story sender for this week. I hope you are doing okay and well, stay alive my friend. 🤗
