Damaged Beauty

He was terrified of loving her,
Not her flawless smooth skin,
Or her bright crimson eyes,
The silken texture of her luscious lips,
He was afraid of the storms inside her,
The disasters which made her a breathtaking mystery,
The irresistible and impossible work of art she was,
And if he was to shed all her skin down,
So he could try to peek inside her soul,
As though to admire the perfection he would see,
The light beyond the shadows of her physical appearance,
He feared to admit to himself,
That she was beautifully damaged,
But like the rest, he was scared to unravel,
The mysteries that were woven into the basis of her existence,
He was tempted to experience love in its best form,
Nonetheless he was afraid to tame the storms roaring inside of her,
He was scared to let go of his desires and transform,
His fear into a superpower to be able to see through her,
And hopelessly fall in love with her beautifully scarred heart.

Untamable

When you are emotionally exhausted,
When you have nowhere to go,
When you feel let down,
When you feel life is passing you by,
When you think the world is against you,
When you feel like you can’t go on,
Take a step back and turn around,
I will be standing there to hold your hand,
When you are at your lowest point,
I will embrace your flaws and let you be,
Tears will be an unknown mystery for your eyes,
Pain will eventually subside,
Estoy y siempre estaré aquí para ti,
You can always count on me,
But some day if you ever decide to feel my love,
Feel it in the air you breathe,
Let its magic fill your soul with hopes and dreams,
And if you ever decide to keep my love,
Keep it alive forever within your core,
Let it be your addiction to always come back for more,
And if you ever decide to choose my love,
Choose it only if it can be your home,
Let it be your safe haven to escape this world,
For this time if and when we do this,
We do this right from the start,
But this time I’ve got to see us through before we fall apart,
This time I’ve got to tame the beat of your untamable heart.

Don’t Stop Believing

When you think the whole world has turned against you,
Take a step back and don’t stop believing,
Let them say what they think is true,
Imagine the unimaginable and don’t stop breathing,
For there are mysteries waiting to be unravelled,
Make the impossible possible and don’t stop dreaming,
Life will knock you down every now and then,
It is okay to make mistakes,
Failure is the only way to ensure,
That you learn and succeed,
So that indescribable feeling you feel,
When madness embraces you,
To breathe magic into emptiness,
With which you can conquer anything,
Walking on the path towards your destination,
And every time you stumble and fall,
You know you can rise like a phoenix from the ashes,
‘Cause that is how it is supposed to be,
So when you think the whole world has turned against you,
Take a step back and don’t stop believing,
Believe in the miracles and believe in yourself,
Believe that your dreams are worth living,
So while you stand at the edge of the earth waiting to jump,
Your dreams somehow keep you from falling,
Now that you have lived the dark and experienced the light,
Don’t give it all up because you’re tired of trying,
Remember, it’s always worth a try,
Remember, you don’t need wings to fly.

Dont stop believing

Day 2: 20 Facts About Me

So its Day 2 for the ‘Blogging Challenge’ and here we go with the 20 facts about me (I hope there’s no repetition of Introduction from the last post):

10656412_10203620270601340_1821983670_n-520x245

1) I am a very loving person. So loving that I don’t think I have the capability to hate or hurt anybody because I can’t stop caring for ‘others’ regardless of their attitude towards me.

2) I am a helpless romantic. It’s all about fairy-tales and happy endings in my book. Everything has to end well or otherwise its not the end!

3) ‘Expect the best and prepare for the worst’. For me, it’s the rule of life. I always expect too much of everything and from everyone (not really sure if I prepare for the worst though).

4) I am all about sincerity and loyalty although I am usually taken advantage of for the little I can/do offer.

5) I have a bad temper.

6) I am quite possessive but I never express it. Although I don’t get possessive about everything, it has to reach a certain level for me to have that sense of ownership to feel the ‘possessiveness’.

7) I will always sacrifice even with/for the wrong person, I seem to think that it’s my responsibility to play the greater part in every role of life.

8) I can forgive in an instant but it will take me an eternity to forget.

9) I tend to depend more on good memories which is a good thing and a bad thing.

10) I am not fond of make up or fashion but I prefer to look presentable (I don’t like shopping at all).

11) I am very particular about hygiene that sometimes I feel like I might have developed Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

12) A good cologne can catch me anywhere and anytime.

13) I don’t talk a lot (reserved but not shy) but it’s taken for me being arrogant, stuck-up, rude and proud.

14) Girls seem to stare at me a lot and run away from me, the reason has always been a mystery.

15) I always learn a lesson the hard way.

16) I want to be a bestseller author one day or an award-winning screenwriter (I want to be known for my writing).

17) I am a loud person but only those close to me (very close) will know.

18) Lately, I have been developing love for dark (‘darkness’).

19) I have a passion for learning to dance, sing and play guitar. I feel like a pop-star and that’s why I dance and sing around the house regardless but I’d love to be trained one day and become a rock-star for real (may be just for my mirror).

20) I am very self-assured and well-aware of my strengths and weaknesses. Although, it’s taken for me being self-obsessed.

Until tomorrow, Live, Love, Inspire & (don’t forget to) Smile. Believe in yourself and you can conquer all your fears.

31 Day Blog Challenge (Day 1: Introduction And Recent Photograph)

IMG_2646

I have been tagged by Nadine to join the ’31 Day Blog Challenge’. I don’t intend on tagging people to join this challenge but anybody who is interested has an open invitation to join it. It’s quite an interesting Challenge as it will encourage me to blog regularly for 31 days (at least). Also, I think it will bring out the creative side of me and provides me with an opportunity to explore myself with the given questions in the Challenge and interact with the audience that ‘actually’ follow my blog and keep up with my posts.

Day 1: Introduction & Recent Photograph

People know me by the name ‘Naima’ and I am quite happy with this first present my parents gave me around twenty years ago. My family means the world to me. My parents especially my mother has worked really hard for me: for us (our family). I wouldn’t be myself if it wasn’t for her. I am not exactly a social person. Rather, I am the family-oriented kind. My siblings are my friends (the best-ones) and I can’t thank God enough for them. My sister has been quite close to me since I have moved to England. She is eight years younger than me but nobody can tell the age difference instead sometimes people are mistaken for her to be the older one which is quite amazing and a laughing-endlessly-moment for both of us (She’s super-mature and very sensible). My brothers have always been my heart-core buddies. They talk about everything and anything. Sometimes, they seem to forget that I am a sister and not a brother, although I have never felt like a girl growing up with these two boys. I have few other friends as well and they fill up the blank spaces in my life but nothing beats the family for me.

I have fallen down many times and learnt valuable life lessons at a very young age. I am very gullible and trustworthy. Hence, I have to keep a distance from the ‘people’ before they could walk all over me. I am quite stubborn and always follow what I believe is right. I am very much against blindly-following into the steps (traditions and rituals) of the so-called society. I believe that humans are given a brain and the capability to think for a reason: to use these blessings to make a difference (a positive one).

I am very passionate about writing. It all started when I was 8. My starting point was a poetry: Betrayal. I edited and improved the poem later on and posted it on here. I have also been very keen about my debating skills and have been told that I’d make a great motivational speaker. I think my teachers and mentors stressed on my confidence and rebuttal skills to an extent where I ended up choosing to be a Lawyer — isn’t it funny? Although, I wanted to be a writer. I still want to be one. Reading has been a hobby for as long as I have known myself. Paulo Coelho is my personal favorite but I also enjoy reading Jodi Picoult, Sidney Sheldon and Enid Blyton (all-time-favorite). I also like to go on long walks (all by myself) — more like wandering. It helps me to think clearly and get rid of the excess baggage — in simple words, it’s a stress reliever. Sometimes long-drives serve the same purpose. I am kind of a person who savors freedom and solitude. I cherish the little time I can spare for myself. I am very fond of Nature and the way it greets me day and night with those enchanting sights, I am sure that I can’t have a better company.

I believe that I know myself but what keeps me going is the mystery that every day reveals a new side of the ‘Naima’ I knew a day ago. I am optimistic but sometimes being over-optimistic is as dangerous as being over-confident. I am quite selfless and it usually plays out against me. The super-hero I think I am and the responsibility of saving this world (or my loved-ones in particular) usually lands me in trouble but I don’t seem to back-off so I hope to make a difference one day. That’s all about it for now.

Until tomorrow, Live, Love, Inspire & (don’t forget to) Smile. Believe in yourself and you can conquer all your fears.

The Mystery of Life

life_beautiful (16)
Before your lips flutter, 
Words you want to utter, 
Dare you not stutter, 
Think before you open your mouth, 
Think of the birds flying from North to South, 
Think of the whales underwater, 
Think of the life without death for a matter, 
Think and realize before you lose  your breath. 

Watch your words before you speak, 
Don’t be a reason for someone to be weak, 
Don’t hassle and try not to freak, 
You know the truth which they are willing to seek, 
Who says, truth is bitter? 
Prove them wrong and let your smile glitter. 

Birds are a symbol of freedom, 
A reason for the mornings to be cheerful, 
A reason for the sun to be fearless, 
A reason for the earth to be beautiful, 
A reason for the humans to learn to be blissful, 
Teaching the significance of love, unity and the charm to be graceful. 

Water is life, 
A symbol of purity, 
For marine life, an insurance of security, 
Beauty of the oceans and the creatures undiscovered, 
Praise the glory of Nature, 
When every day is a new beginning in the undercover, 
Grab the opportunity where Nature can be your lover. 
 
Death is a mystery, 
Yet life is a puzzle to solve this history, 
As you sow so shall you reap, 
Keep your nose clean while you prepare for the eternal sleep, 
Cherish every morning and the presence of sun, 
Live every moment like it’s your last and the only one. 
 
Wisdom is the daughter of experience, 
Life teaches you step by step on the way, 
Be careful as there’ll be ups and downs as you stray, 
Remain steadfast for you’re a warrior who can’t run away, 
Believe in your heart and soul – forget and forgive everyday. 
 
 

Tear Drops

Cry until happiness embraces the swollen eyes

The reflection unseen,
Craving a cup of caffeine. 

Red swollen face and the rolling tears,
To tug the outburst within revealing fears. 

The dark starry night thus so long,
Rumbling words tuning into a rhymed song.

The alcohol defy to tempt insanity,
The roller coaster of life betrays humanity.

My body’s numb and strength fatal,
Love rescues my conscience unstable.

Panic strangles the mystery,
Tear drops narrate their history.

The hasty breaths release the firm grip,
The grievous setback attempts to make a flip.

The calmness pleads the hustle bustle to take control,
Happiness forgives sorrow for its vicious role.

Endurance of tear drops uphold a smile,
The enchanting air heals the wounds in a while.
