A to Z Challenge: Zipped

Don’t spill the bean
Keep what you have just seen
Write it the water
And don’t ever falter

Don’t utter a word
Or try to be bold
Just shut up your mouth
To hide any doubt

Just play it coy
And don’t use your voice
Pretend you are mute
When there is dispute.

Tokens of Gratitude: Friends

Being a transparent and straight forward person that I am, I know that other people cannot get along with me that easily. No wonder I have few friends.

A friend is someone who sees
the pain in your eyes while everyone else
believes your smile


For me, there’s a big difference between an acquaintance and a friend. Not because someone always smile at you every time you stumble upon him/her or say hello means they are a friend. They are just acquaintance. Being friends with another person have a deeper meaning. And as far as I’m concerned, I don’t believe in ‘fake friends‘. If you are not my true friend, you are not my friend at all.

Today, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to God Almighty for blessing me with friends who can always and is more than willing to keep up with my mood swings, hard-headedness, and childish ways. And I can always count on them especially during difficulties. They are really treasures that’s hard to find in this life.
