Guns and Roses

This is a reblogged poem from my other site. It carries some little changes.



if these roses can whisper

to people of different ears

if conflicts can listen for awhile

our lives can carry tears and cheers

.

thorns could prick our skin

protruding from the stalks

but flowers are all akin

various flags along the garden blocks

.

beautiful buds now abloom

speaking softly to the stars

thoughts were read by the restless moon

concerned about the ongoing  wars

.

if all the guns would turn to lovely flowers

no bubble of hatred would burst as it poses

no braves would win, no cowards would cower

when bombs and arrows  become  bouquet of roses…

Divine Decree

the morning heavens seemed humid
as the wind-blown leaves swayed to and fro
moist and teary petals danced with the foggy mood
birds’ songs strayed beyond the limits of hello

the sun peeped thru the contours of the mountains
slowly lifting the curtains of the new day
shadows moved quietly slow and blusterously fast
as humans burned energies to earn some pay

the afterglow is at the mercy of the blinded sky
rested its fate at the hands of destiny’s time
laid quietly on the bed of fortune
what is written is forever unknown …

sounds of the piano devoured by my ears
loud then soft as they breezed in chorus
picked them up and in my head
became moving spectacle in hindsight

a story floated where notes freely played
sad and happy ones spread in front of me
as tears from saddened eyes fell
my heart was pierced with lonely thoughts of the past

changing scenes spiked on that lovely place
a heart met heart exchanging humid and hot glances
as the pretty and amiable moon looked down on us
enfolding two hearts in a tight warm embrace

i could feel the throbbing of your heart in cadence
as your chest laid on my robed skin,
you pressed your sensual body against mine
and the love exploded and spiraled into a spin

as our love defined how we should live
a new life was born as traces of love was marked
and into the kind arms our love enfold
the angels you met guided us where life was never wasted…

Is crying helpful ?

Reading sad love stories or watching emotional TV series can easily make some people cry while others find it hard to shed some tears.

It is a normal thing seeing most people cry at funerals. It is in that situation that arouses their emotions that make them cry. Losing a loved one can have an immediate emotional response that may eventually lead to crying more than the normal.

Sadness, anger, and even happiness can induce crying. It is believed to be an outlet or a result of a burst of intense emotional sensations during happy events and painful occurrences.

In a study, most people feel better after the crying episode. It activates the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) which help people relax. It regulates their emotions, helps them to be calm and reduce their own stress level.

Crying is primarily an attachment behavior, as it rallies support from the people around us. This is known as an interpersonal or social benefit.

Additionally, it makes people feel good and may also ease both physical and emotional pain. In this way, crying can help reduce pain and promote a sense of well-being.

It helps lift people’s spirits and make them feel better. As well as relieving pain, oxytocin and endorphins can help improve mood. This is why they are often known as “feel good” chemicals.

When humans cry in response to stress, their tears contain a number of stress hormones and other chemicals.

Researchers believe that crying could reduce the levels of these chemicals in the body, which could, in turn, reduce stress. More research is needed into this area to confirm this.

However, it follows that the calming, mood-enhancing, and pain-relieving effects of crying may help a person fall asleep more easily.

Crying helps to kill bacteria and keep the eyes clean as tears contain a fluid called lysozyme. The fluid had such powerful antimicrobial properties that it could even help to reduce risks presented by bioterror agents.

Basal tears, which are released every time a person blinks, help to keep the eyes moist and prevent mucous membranes from drying out.

As the National Eye Institute explains, the lubricating effect of basal tears helps people to see more clearly. When the membranes dry out, vision can become blurry.

“Another interesting discovery about the content of tears was made by Dr. William H. Frey II, a biochemist at the St. Paul-Ramsey Medical Center in Minnesota. He and his team analyzed two types of tears: the emotional ones (crying when emotionally upset and stressed) and the ones arising from irritants (such as crying from onions). They found that emotional tears contained more of the protein-based hormones, prolactin, adrenocorticotropic hormone, and leucine enkephalin (natural painkiller), all of which are produced by our body when under stress. It seems as if the body is getting rid of these chemicals through tears. That explains why we usually feel better after a good cry.”

So, there you go. Cry as much as you want – it is probably good for you. But no cheating by inducing crying with onions. Your tear glands know the difference.”

Success…

i gathered skills
to color my skin
i exerted efforts
to know where to begin

i bathed in the sun
to bake some dirt
i froze in the dawn
to immerse into the hurt

tears and sweat have mixed
as they spilled out from skin
energy and time
ran along my will

thoughts of survival
came spinning on the wheel
busy fingers on the weave
molding a body of steel

“i can do it”
i kept reminding me
searching for the brightest star
the one that’s holding the key

i have reached the core
the heart of the night
the success i was aiming for
was won ’cause i gave the battle a fight…
