»Be Yourself.«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, August 10, 2017

At times our light attracts negative
Energies. We have become homes
To spirits that are not welcome.
Every day we envy and despise
Individuals who burn their torches,
Yet we forget to ignite the fire
From within.
Never parade another man’s light,
When you dim your light seeking the
Light from another being.
Let your light shine, let your light reveal
The light from within.
Be Yourself!

Different shapes, sizes and sounds / are unique and lovely altogether. / We all say we love music, yet we / never understand the significance of / each note- the odd sound vibrations / that each note carries- and let alone / the names of the notes. / / Life is a Musical note. It can come / in different read more »
