Parenting In Today’s Complex Society And The Widening Gap In Youth Engagement. #ResponsibleParenting

Life, Leadership and Legacy

The adolescents of today may find themselves waiting longer before marrying. This is not as a result of any direct fault of theirs but the complexity of our society of now. Parents and guardians must do better than pressure them on conventional beliefs. Your marrying at their age need not dictate that they should marry at same age under a totally different clime and human condition.

If you are reading this and you are pressured, kindly take a deep breath and relax. There is no point spending more time trying to be more physically attractive in order to impress anyone (crush or not) rather than making yourself mentally attractive.

Social media may have become a showglass for exhibiting body parts and vanities but do not let this distract you. Educate yourself, address your recurring toxic thoughts, deal with your insecurities and learn to be happy on your own. This is…

Echoes (You Were the Song)

Beautiful lines, words and title…ECHOES (YOU WERE THE SONG)

Annie's Poetry

You were the song my soul longed to sing

Like strains of music we wound together

The sky was midnight blue

With stardust and rose petals

Falling around us

Eternityall around in a silken haze

Nights were filled with the sweet fragrance

Of purple irises and white orchids

All ebony and moon glow

But now forgotten shadows

Frequent that room

And one voice echoes as it touches stone walls

In a dream I wake to find myself empty

Just as an extinguished candle

Leaves the night

Poem: Soulful Journey – 25/10/21

Beautiful words and lines… Poem: Soulful Journey – 25/10/21

Lauren M. Hancock Poetry and Prose

Ride the carriage with ease,
soulful journey,
as pleasant as you please,
the wind in my hair
as I whistle and need
fresh breath filling my lungs –
joyous moments felt and seen.

I take this ride away
from yesteryears,
travel forth,
there’s no need to fear,
I have been here before,
many eons ago,
but I am well versed
in these rules,
there are none to relearn
or know.

A delicate pathway winds through
the countryside,
sights to see, sounds to hear and feel,
I am buoyant in this life,
it’s as though
I’m not wandering anymore,
enough was enough,
I’ve transformed more,
and more, then more.

Physical and mindset
adjusted for the better,
keep myself in tow
as I chase this delectable weather,
the climate of my life,
woven perfection, becoming more,
what’s in store for my future?
Even I’m not so sure.

All I know is that

Talin’s Travel Tips During The COVID19 Pandemic

Talin’s Travel Tips During The COVID19 Pandemic

Talin Orfali Ghazarian

We have all been through a lot haven’t we since February, 2020? It has been a roller coaster of emotions running through us all during this COVID19 pandemic. We felt isolated, we couldn’t see family and friends, our lives took a halt, our travel plans were put on hold. We have all been affected in some way, shape and form and some were not so lucky unfortunately.

The wildflower…

THE WILDFLOWER…amazing lines, words and muci

johncoyote

The wildflowers….

Wild flowers and sweet dreams.
Dancing nude and free.
You were my perfect woman.
I was your Bob Dylan.
Damning the fake dreams and lies of this world.

We would travel to photo the wildflowers fields.
Drank sweet red wine and laugh at the free wind.
We stood our ground and we knew.
The wild flowers dreams are hard to hold.

You were my love and I was your lovers in the middle of the dancing wildflowers.
We knew our time was short.
The fire of being fearless only shined for a short time.

The Winterizing of the heart and mind.
Leave two domain people wishing for butterfly kisses and
to make love in wildflowers field like children in heart once again.

Coyote/John Castellenas
