A shield from the pits; A trail towards the top ❥

Your presence completes me

Your voice softens my own

When you’re not here I feel so alone

It’s the way you speak to me

How very evident is your love

Like a secure gift sent from above

It’s so clear in the way

You tell me you’re going to stay

A shield from the pits

A trail towards the top

With intentions so pure

You’re so content

So sure

That in my worst days

You become my best cure

You see right through me

Right through me you see

You know me inside out

Inside out you know me

I repeat

And repeat

Yet you listen to every beat


I wonder, everyday

When will we finally meet?


Just Keep Swimming

Hope: a small word with innumerable amount of significance. You know sometimes we go through life & encounter situations in which we have no hope’, or so we say. But hope is just a matter of believing. We’ve all heard of that cheesy line that goes, ‘if you can believe it, you can achieve it’. While this might not be 100% true, it does have a bit of truth behind it. Having hope doesn’t mean that you will always come out on top & succeed, but it will give you the endurance you need to get through a difficult or aggravated time. That little bit of hope you have can help you overcome a lot of things. There will be situations where that tiny ounce of hope that you had, was totally worth it. Life is full of surprises. You don’t know what your future holds for you, so never lose hope. As hard as it may get, stay hopeful & hopefully things work out for you! And if they don’t, remember that everything happens for a reason, & everyone has a different path that’s written for them. To get to that path you may have to miss a few opportunities here and there, but it might all be worth the success you may have in the end. Stay hopeful & just keep swimming. ❤

If I could sum up one of my life goals in 3 words it would be to ‘travel the world’. As cliché as that sounds it is actually one of my biggest dreams. I love to venture and most importantly I love the journey. What good is the destination without the eager and lingering journey? We all live in our hometown where we were most likely born, grew up and got educated, and where we continue to build our future. What we fail to realize is that this is just a small piece of this huge world we live in. There is so much out there for us to experience and be a part of. The world has so much more to offer. I’ve always wanted to experience cultures that are very different from mine, and see places that I’ve never seen before. I’ve been in Canada, more specifically Ontario all my life. It is wonderful here so I’m not complaining, but I’ve seen it all. I want to see new places. Everything is so beautiful to see in pictures, but imagine actually being inside that picture and being a part of it all. Imagine how breathtaking that would be.

Some places that I would be most excited to travel are (in order): Mecca, Saudi Arabia; Dubai, UAE; Sharm el-sheikh, Egypt; Cape Town, South Africa; Casablanca, Morocco; Barcelona, Spain; Salvador, Brazil; Mumbai, India; Seoul, Korea; Venice, Italy; Agra, India; Cancun, Mexico. These are just to name a few, because I have a very long list. Everyplace I listed is very unique to each other, and their culture, society, traditions, as well as the overall environment are very different from that of my own. The pictures of these places you can hold in your hand (or save on your computer via Google images), but the actual experience is one to embrace in your heart forever. It would be life changing to travel and see all these places, and touch all the wonders of the world that you see in the pictures with your own hands. It would just be astonishing & overwhelming. One day, just one day…
