Poetry Passion

Poe-tree ūüĆ≥

Sprouted with words

Continued with rhythm

Speaks like music, straight to the soul

Comes from art in mind

“Use your heart, not your eyes

Always, end with love

                                    ~Angeline R. Alcalá

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†This was the first poem I had ever written for my blog. I didn’t post it¬†before because I thought it was too short, too simple,¬†or boring. I don’t feel that way about it anymore. There are so many variations of art forms! We don’t have to fit a mold. We should, however, strive to¬†give our all¬†in whatever we do. Your heart knows when¬†you’ve given the best of you (thank you rupi kaur).¬†I have to consciously decide to be honest and vulnerable because when I’m not, I become miserable and can’t truly connect with people. When we’re afraid to fail, we hideaway and miss out on great opportunities.

¬† ¬† ¬†I found out that I didn’t get a job I needed¬†because the interview didn’t go as planned, like at all.¬†I’m grateful that I¬†took the opportunity though because I learned from it. I applied for another job and will apply for more, maybe even the same¬†one again¬†later.

¬† ¬† ¬†Life¬†goes on.¬†I know what to do differently now and will use what I learned in the future. If I don’t choose to see things in a positive light, I could drown in sadness. Happiness or contentment aren’t always but can be decisions. I choose them over the opposite, every chance that I get. Let’s live everyday like it could be our last because tomorrow isn’t promised and life on earth is only a glimpse of eternity! At the end of the day, what is in your heart? I long to collect and pour out all the love that my heart is capable of.

"Three things will last forever‚ÄĒfaith, hope, and love‚ÄĒand the greatest of these is love.‚ÄĚ
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

     -Much love, A. R. A.

(One of my favorite songs, that encourages the “I am enough”/ “I am light” mindset, necessary for soul survival and the confidence needed¬†for¬†success).

  1. I actually really loved the poem. Definitely loved the play on poetry and tree. Loved you sharing your heart and what you’re going through in your day to day. Despite not getting the job I know God will have a better one lined up. Way to focus on what you’re grateful for ūüėÄ
