Positive vibes only

The volume of hateful comments on social media is quite alarming; and I just keep wondering how we got here.
The way some people (sometimes faceless) hide behind their phone screens and lash out at fellow humans that they know little or nothing about is scary and sad
And I just wonder...
Yes, we have freedom of expression ...
But does that give you the ticket to insult people that are trying to make something out of their lives, when you've not gotten your own life in order?

Why criticize others for petty reasons when you've not gotten your shit together?

Who gave you the right to judge others when you're not even close to perfect?

Have you asked yourself why all you do is monitor the lives of others, pick up what you see as flaws and analyse everything they do like your life depends on it?

Whether you're just seeking attention or you just choose to be mean, please remember words run deep.
We need to cut one another some slack.

Life is short
Use your time wisely
Mind your business and invest in your life and that of others positively
Hateful talks and negative vibes would probably not add a dime to your life
If all you see is destructive criticism, you need to change your 'lens'

Life is mean enough
Let's spread love and not hate

Everything good will come

It will come
It surely will
It will come
In no time
It will come
When you start living
And stop waiting
It will come

August Visitor

Sometimes like an august visitor
Love comes knocking 

Sometimes love sneaks up on us
Holding a bag of surprises

Sometimes love comes around
And sweeps us off our feet

Sometimes love comes hot
Melting every ice walls

International Women's day

I'm not going to come here and lecture you about how strong a woman is
I know you already know

I'm not going to tell you a woman is worthy of some respect
I know you already know

I'm not going to tell you a girl child needs to be educated
I know you already know

I'm not going to tell you we are not in a 'competition' with men
I know you already know

You can feign ignorance
You can lie to yourself

But I know you already know
That women bring some unexplainable beauty to the world

I know you already know
Women should be treated like eggs
But left to soar like eagles

I thank God for ordering your steps towards me
And I thank you for bringing some sunshine along

One day is not enough to celebrate you
One day is not enough to celebrate love

Let's make everyday Valentine's day
Shall we?

This is home

My heart has found her home
I've seen the one I've been waiting for
Love has found me
I've found love

You say I'm your lost but found rib
And I know you're an answered prayer
We are perfection in the making

Please hold my hand and never let go
Let's go on a journey to forever
Walk with me and never look back
Let's make history
