    Little Thoughts

    When i was younger, i thought love was a bit easy and simple.

    I thought, when one’s love leaves, one would get a new love.

    I thought one could keep loving over no matter the circumstances.

    I was wrong!

    Sometimes, love do not come back. You can not help it, you can not force it, it wouldn’t just let you have a feel of itself. Because the unique art of love is gone.

    One will keep searching for what was lost to the unfaithfulness and infidelity of others.

    One will parade the face of earth hoping to love again.

    LOVE IS A GOOD THING!

    If you feel it the right way, be sure not to use it the wrong way.

    As simple as it is, Love is complex yet it is interesting.

    So, lets spread LOVE.

    Sonnet “THE HATE YOU GIVE”

    We are the ones who can tell We are the ones who can yell
    The hate the system gave
    The affection the system wave

    We are the ones with no home
    The less privilege with no hope
    We are the poor masses
    The ones with lost and forgotten faces

    With our dresses torn
    Our bellies filled with worm
    Our skeletal legs and arms
    We limp to the drop of grains

    We loathe you for the hate you give,
    We despise you for the apathy you leave,

    THE MAN WITH NO LOVE

    He thought it was the warmness of a womb, but rather it was an Incubator.

    He thought he suckled a breast, i realized it was only a feeder.

    He thought he heard a woman’s voice put him to bed, he didn’t know it to be an electronic voice.

    He thought they were his families, they are together you know, but he realized he was in a foster care.

    He thought they were his friends, he discovered they were around for the money.

    How could he love?

    Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

    This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

    You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

    Why do this?

    • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
    • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

    The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

    To help you get started, here are a few questions:

    • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
    • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
    • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
    • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

    You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

    Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

    When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
