POETRY: Moments

Moments

I wish my eyes were a camera,

Capturing moments for all to see.

An instance of pure happiness,

Or of devastation and misery.

 

Those times of heightened emotion,

Whether they be good or bad.

To either make another feel better,

Or to help someone feel glad.

 

We all have struggles to overcome,

So sharing them can be an aid,

To those who feel quite alone,

Who feel somewhat afraid.

 

Then sometimes we just need to cheer them up,

Let them see the good in the world.

Oh, I wish my eyes were a camera,

To show we live on a pearl!

 

Life is precious, and the land is alive,

We need to work together to survive,

We should help each other to see the light,

To say ‘yes’ instead of ‘I might’.

SOCIAL SECTION: Do you have a dream?

A big hello to those who care to share your time with me,

Throughout my childhood, teenage years and up to now, I have always been known as a “social butterfly”. I would continuously seek to be apart of collaborative groups, such as being in an Orchestra performing in front of hundreds of fans, being in a small alternative music band, doing art classes, helping with the running of various volunteering events and being apart of mentoring teams.

While studying at University, I also work a part-time retail job, and enjoy every second of it! Am I the only one who loves having extensive conversations with costumers? It is astonishing the discussions that arise, when you take the time to really show interest in their lives.

On that note, it is true, that I love hearing other peoples stories. Thus, I decided to publish this social post, in order to get to know all of you. How are you? Do you have a growing passion for writing, educating, learning, or something else? What are your goals in life? How many goals have you already ticked off your list?

I am always willing to hear your story, because that is what my site promotes, freedom of speech and support for all.

Sincerely Jody

Take on the world, let your passions drive you to success!

Take on the world, let your passions drive you to success!

Do you have a desire to write, to learn or to educate other growing beings? Do you look over the vast ocean of rocky waves that is life and think, ‘I want to make a difference’? Good. Never let that passion go. Let it be your fuel as you take on any challenge life sets you.

I believe that we are all born with a natural desire to succeed in this forever changing world. As we grow this desire transforms into passions, and these passions are what drive us to succeed. Lets nurture these passions, and let the nature of writing, learning and sharing our knowledge through teaching take over.

We are social creatures of the world, so lets grow together and share our passion of writing and education!
