My very first entry for this new blog…tapi tak tahu nak tulis apa. It’s a bit like writing an essay…the introduction is the hardest to crack. Once I have done that, the rest would come as easy as a stroll in the park because I have always been good at words…at least, written words.
But verbal words…now that’s a different story. I am different in writing than I am in person. But I don’t think that is unique to me. I believe, it is everyone’s failing. Just ask yourself… if that is not true for you too?
But also ask yourself, why is that so?
It’s because we are much less vulnerable and much more comfortable hiding our emotions behind written words, and thus causing us to become much bolder than we would ever be in person.
So it’s not that I am a different person in writing than I am in reality. It’s just that I am much bolder in writing because I am comfortable writing. I can give words to my emotions to strangers, I would not mind strangers reading my writing, not caring if any strangers find my writing offensive.
Meanwhile, in person, what is true to doing an essay, is true to dealing with me…meaning introduction is the key, and the hardest part too.
Make an introduction, crack the ice, and I will be your friend too. And you will find I am exactly as I am in writing once you have gotten to know me and I have gotten comfortable with you.
So the take-home-message is: Don’t be surprised if I seem different in person. That must mean I am not comfortable with you. So it’s not my fault. hahahahha.
Ok, enough of being cheeky…let’s get to the heart of the matter.
Welcome to My New Blog…
It’s called Life’s Poetries That May Not Rhyme.
But sometimes they may, and here is one;
The Battle of Emotion If all feelings and sentiments, In this world could gather, And discuss about Passion And Passion could hear them discuss her, I can't help but wonder, Which of them shall triumph? Love stands and proudly says, "Passion is enthusiasm, Without which life is colourless. But passion, too short a life-span, Shall never outshine I, the Love" Affection then smiles and says, "Passion is determination, Without which life lost its purpose, But Passion too fierce a love, Making I, an enjoyable lightness" Courage stands to take his turn, "Passion gives one a sense of strength, With resilience and fresh emotion, But Passion so impulsive, too unbent, So, I, the Courage at the end won." Passion fumes with burn indignation, She stares down at Love, Courage and Affection, "Love is all very well, but riddled with confusion, Lead to petty emotion, often blind and easily broken." Love gasps in pride and anger, Passion turns to Affection and ignores her. "Affection, you are fickle, ever-changing, Your lightness is your undoing. You, are only Love's inferior version, Your existence, is almost redundant." Affection cries in pride and anger, Passion turns to Courage and ignores her. "It is I, the core being of Courage, Without me, oh Courage, you are meaningless, I give you beliefs causing you to pledge, I will fight and bring back my winnings." Courage fumes in pride and anger, Passion smiles, oh the sweet avenger. Wisdom passes by the heated conference, Feeling left out, she is wounded, "I may have no feelings, nor sentiments, And I am proud not to be included, Among those lacking in guidance, In excessive emotion their bickering pounded, Without faith, devoid of knowledge, All feelings become heathens, Unrest, unfulfilled, like souls haunted." So Courage, Love and Affection, And Passion as well as Wisdom, left the meeting in indignation, Alas, why don't they think just for a moment, How strong they would be, if all of them, Stay together and agree to the same notion To only be guided by religion and revelation. -Afiza Azmee-
