LES VAGUES DE LA MER (THE WAVES OF THE SEA)


EPISODE TWO


Dieu merci (thank God) for how I grew up to have a high self-esteem and such perfect beauty. Before anyone has to tell me how beautiful I am, I tell myself everyday ‘Je suis terriblement et merveilleusement fait’ (I am fearfully and wonderfully made). With my ability, I humbly say I will gain admission into the university in no time and all my desires will transpire.

I was in my room one Friday afternoon, I mulled over how I want my future to be. A bright coloured future with petals and first-rate fragrance. I saw a big living room plastered with gold, a ceiling of breath-taking designs of inventive silhouette. A curtain whose fabrics were shipped from China...this and many other thoughts clouded my mind. Ironically as the thoughts were, the single word to describe a future that I dream is ‘Parfait’ (Perfect). With my family’s wealth, I am close to achieving success soon enough if money were to stop me. Well, it can’t.

LES VAGUES DE LA MER (THE WAVES OF THE SEA)



EPISODE ONE 

I am at the  shore, feeding my senses with the breeze that encapsulates a forceful weight of cold, shock, heat and inmost mayhem. I am feeling like the breeze had teleported me to the space, for I can no longer feel my legs, my hair, even my heart. But, I have never been to the space before, I just know I had lost all my sense of stimuli, the only thing I can feel is hurt. I am moving towards the sea, if only the sea can drown my tears without taking me away, or if it could wash away my hurt and I still live to breath, how glad and what fortuitousness would I record again like I’m just coming anew to the world. Just that ‘L’acte est fait’, to mean “the deed is done.”

The Negative You (Potential/Dwarf Repeller)




  • Awkward Attitude which includes laziness, negative mindedness, frivolity, indecisive, inconsistency.
  • Laziness is not the lack of unwillingness to work, it is a negative attitude that makes you sit down, look, waste time, without doing what you have to do. It is this laziness, that if you permit, will not allow you to know how much your wings can spread. It contains your potentials in a cup, not permitting it to be poured, who knows how far it can spread if it spills. Laziness is a self-inflicted disease that should be jettisoned from your life.

You're Your Worst Enemy 1



Many a times, people often complain about where they are, what they have, how they are and who they are. It is not a sin to make complaints but that is only when you understand what your complaint is. Before you make any complaint or accept fate, take a sensor of the kinds of enemy you have around you, examine their effect on you, you would realize they have no effect on you as huge as that of the greatest enemy.
This greatest enemy is you- yourself!

POEM: I SAW IT




I SAW IT

What I know to exhale from the mouth is air;                                                                               

But in his mouth exhaled fire, with a blare.                                                                                     

Shocked, I straightened up,                                                                                                                            

So I don’t look like a pup.                                                                                                                                    

He floated again like balloon.                                                                                                               

I saw it clearly, no cord attached, it was noon.                                                                                 

Many other wonders of magic did I see.                                                                                            

It was not a child’s play, like abc.                                                                                                          

Excitedly I told daddy;                                                                                                                                        

He laughed me to the peak and picked the caddy;                                                                                                     

You’re just a child; those were not real; it’s illusion.                                                                                                                                                                                                           

I don’t believe daddy’s words.                                                                                                                          

I know what I saw; It was real.

Pleasing Everyone Is Downright Impossible



Kris Carr had said “You can’t please everyone. When you’re too focused on living up to other people’s standards, you aren’t spending enough time raising your own...”  Without having to bore you with quotes, let me drop this one too from Constance Wu “You’re never going to please everyone, and if you do, there is something wrong.”

Pleasing everyone is downright an impossible thing to do. You’ll be thrown in the middle of crowd, each pulling you here and there to listen to their opinion at the least. While you’re left there in the middle, you’ll soon discover they don’t really care cos they are already gone and you’re left alone to clean your own mess.
