Artistic Soul

This is a beautifully written piece which I have come to find is the norm from my friend Ishan. I would like to share its beauty with my followers. Enjoy!



My soul is a great artist
Born with an amazing gift
Once in a lifetime talent
Trained for many years

With the paintbrush of passion
It works its magic with hues
Each stroke is a stroke of love
Colouring the world anew

With the clay of still quiet
It works magic with my hands
Patiently with the people
It sculpts hearts with Truth

With words full of harmony
It works magic with poems
Each word an inspiration
Filling pages with peace

With music within the soul
It works magic with rhythms
Each note creates a ladder
A chance to climb higher

I’m far from being special
Your soul is an artist too
Create from the depths of your heart
You’ll be amazed at what you can do

Strong Family Ties


The blessed ones are those with strong family ties,

that cannot be broken when even the darkest evil tries.

For some of us this kind of love is hardly ever seen,

so we search for love and fulfillment by some other means.

Often we make a rushed and unhealthy choice,

refusing to listen to our distinct inner voice.

Oh yes, we hear this voice loud and clear,

the truth often being our greatest fear.

From ourselves, we run ~ we try so hard to hide,

but nothing can bury the real truth,  hidden deep inside.

Strong family ties, are knots forever bound,

that form the kind of bond that is not often enough found.

Family is the root from where we all begin,

and to forget where we came from is truly a sin.
