Hustle – A Haiku

bloody knuckles in
the midst of hustle to gain
ground – fight for your dream

The Gift – A Five Sentence Flash Fiction

The Gift - A Flash Fiction

Returning to the place, where she had been abandoned, was supposed to bring her closure of some kind, but instead it brought her only an empty feeling of nothingness. The bare steps of the large church where cold, bare and a stark contrast to her childhood, adopted by the kindest people she ever met, or could imagine. There was no trace of her, the one, who had given life, but nothing else, no sign of love, no care, no connection. Glancing back at the two people, waiting at a short distance for her, to find her own way, she was glad, she had been left behind.

Rising Above – A Flash Fiction

free

Take it away from me, go ahead, see if it will break my will, as you imagined it would do.
Try me, and see, if your actions will not only fuel my desires to rise above it all.
No hateful action, desperate, painful word will break me.
Go ahead, I dare you, for you do not know my deepest truth, my hidden strength.
No matter what you do to me, I am already free.

Passion

Passion - A Daily Prompt Post

How you know if you’re passion is to be a writer:

Answer the following question:

If money and time was not an option, meaning you had plenty of all, and all of your worries are taken care off, what would you do with your time?

If your answer is writing, stick with it. Make time, forge time, take a set time where you pretend that all of the money in the world is yours, and there are no other chores waiting for you and WRITE!

If you answer is something else, find a way to make that your life goal.

Take The Chance

breaking free, I dare
to dream far beyond the stars
time to take the chance

Today, we were asked to finish the sentence:

“Life is too short to __________”.

Here is my answer:

Life is too short to wait for chances to find you – forge your own way. I have no time for small dreams, that do not inspire, rather I dream big, and if I fall short of some of them, I still came a heck of a lot further than someone who dreamed small.

Do you dream big? Do you take actions toward goals that inspire you, motivate you, make you think of possibilities? And (more importantly), do you have a reason to follow through on them, something that propels you to take actions every single day?

Mine is simple:

I want to live my dreams to inspire my children to live theirs. If I can achieve what I want, they at least will see that there is a possibility for them to achieve their own, and forge their own way. Remember, we need more people on fire in this world, not more people who wait for things to happen to them.

Waiting

Waiting

I waited all my life.
I have been waiting for the right moment to run away from this prison called family, find my own way, forge my own destiny.
I have been waiting for that special time to follow through on my dreams, the moment of inspiration to strike, when the fire of following through burns so hot within me, that it leaves me no choice but to act.
I have been waiting for the perfect second to share with you the deep love I feel, expressing all that my heart desires so much to share, with you, my soul mate.
On my knee, in front of you, I am no longer waiting, for the thought of loosing you burns harder in me within me, than any fear of taking a chance.
