Forgiveness sets the heart free

April 25, 2012 Leave a comment
A broken heart is the tomb of a dying man.
But a heart full of merry can make him careless just as much
Love and life have one thing in common; “nothing is certain”.
We live, but brace ourselves for the day when death will strike
We love, but brace ourselves for the inevitable heartbreak.
Why then do we allow ourselves to be engrossed in vengeance?
The pain and discomfort that comes with it,
The lack of hope, and the desperation to hurt others…
And make them go though turmoil,
Just because we feel that they deserve to;
Just because we think they should feel the same pain we felt?


No human is perfect; no man was born a saint
And to err is to man; we can’t take back what’s already done.
But we can change the direction the aftermath takes.
Every action puts us in a position where we can make a choice.
It is this choice that makes us powerful.
We have no control over what has been,
Even though we have been hurt by the people close to us,
It doesn’t justify if we try our best to make their lives miserable.
We gain nothing but more pain, mystery, and mistrust
But we have control over our future
Because we know we have all the cards in our hands.
And the beauty of it is; No one else is in control; we are.


Our past doesn’t define our future.
And we certainly can’t make other people pay;
Pay for the sins of people who didn’t deserve our loyalty
No one goes into something they know they will fail;
But when they do, they pick themselves up, dust off and move on.
Otherwise so many of us would never be where we are today.
It’s unfortunate that we go through situations we had rather hadn’t
But it’s even bad enough that we get judged by those moments forever.
One mistake done is a lesson learnt; once bitten twice shy.
Love is treasure, a gift, a moment in time when we look back and feel good,
Love is patient, its kind, but it’s also forgiving.
We have only one life to live; it will be stupid to waste it away in vengeance.

Rihanna and Chris Brown’s Girlfriend Karrueche Tran at War!

March 8, 2012 Leave a comment

Now, I am not one to get all hooked up in relationship drama but this one has got me gluing my eyes on twitter. When I first heard that Rihanna and Chris had been secretly hooking up over the past year, I wasn’t shocked. I kinda like expected it. At that time, a Rihanna insider was quoted saying “Rihanna loves to live dangerously, and talking to and hooking up with Chris is all part of that,”

So we all know that Rihanna, Chris Brown’s ex, who is still on court order to keep Chris Brown within 50yards of her for five years (since 2009) is a tough cookie. And if Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown’s girlfriend since January, doesn’t know this then she’s in for a rude shock.

Chris, who physically abused Rihanna three years ago, has been reportedly getting closer to her, even recording two duets with her. Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake,” from her latest album, Talk That Talk, was released on Rihanna’s birthday, February 20, along with a remix of Chris Brown’s “Turn up the Music,” featuring Rihanna’s vocals.

The ‘only girl in the world’ singer has reportedly been targeting Karrueche in what is seen as a Facebook glide. She (Rihanna) 24, tweeted a photo that could be interpreted as a racist jab at Tran, who is half-Vietnamese: a bag of rice cakes with gold earrings and black shades, along with the caption, “Ima make u my bitch,” on March 3.

In return Tran, 23, posted to her profile, referencing the famous Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt/Jennifer Aniston love triangle. “I’m Angeline [sic], you’re Jen. C’mon you see where Brad is at,”

On Tuesday, Rihanna, perhaps fueling the feud again, tweeting lyrics from Lil Kim/Mob Deep‘s remix “Quiet Storm,” “I’m a leader, yall on some followin s***…comin in dis game on some modeling s***!” possibly referencing Tran’s occupation.

 If this is not a little jihad on the social network, we’ll be sure to catch it on the camera! Y’know y’all love juicy details!

Teacher Leaves Wife, Kids for High School Student

March 2, 2012 Leave a comment

Now this is just insane! A teacher at Enochs High School in Modesto, California, has left his wife and kids for a student in his class. The 41 year old James Hooker resigned from his duties due to the scandal that’s shaken up a community and put one mom, Tammie Powers, on a crusade to save her daughter from this man who is typically old enough to be her father. Needless say, Mr. Hooker has a 17 year old daughter who is also a student in the same school. We can only imagine the embarrassment the family is facing leave alone ridicule for the 17 year old who has to bear the scorn of her father’s behavior.

Jordan Powers enrolled in the school as a freshman and had been in Mr. Hooker’s class but claims are that they were nothing more than a teacher and his student at the time… (Well, at least until she was of legal age).

Now, Hooker’s former boss, Modesto City Schools Supt. Pam Able says she “considers student-teacher dating relationships to be not only unprofessional, but immoral.” and further adds that the relationship between the two has become a “source of great concern for staff, students and parents.”

Mr. Hooker, who has since moved in with his 18 year old student/ lover, however is slamming his accuser, Jordan’s mom, saying that he sees nothing wrong with it as “we really do want to have a future together.”

Tammie Powers has turned her facebook page to a hunter’s lodge where she has plastered Mr. Hooker’s photo all over her wall warning neighbors about the him. She has also launched an official police investigation to find out if Hooker’s relationship with her daughter began before Jordan was 18 years old. This, she supports with the knowledge that most photos and telephone conversations the couple has were are dated before Jordan’s recent birthday where she turned 18 years old, making the relationship legal.

Incriminated by her past

February 1, 2012 Leave a comment
Looking at her watch, Emma sighs;
It’s almost 8.00pm…her stomach churns.
“He’ll be here soon; be strong, girl,” she tells herself.
She sips the last of her drink and looks at her knuckles…
Her hands are white, her throat is dry; suddenly, it’s chilly.


She looks up, and there he is.
Tall and build, handsome as always, his charm spreading everywhere in the room.
Emma is cringing. Her heart is beating fast.
She tries to rub her hands and pull her scarf lower,
Even still she’s cold, and scared!


Looking at him advance her table, she finds herself wondering.
Is this the man who swept her off her feet?
Is he the man who made her pain go away and her fears seem so small?
What happened to that? The security, the joy and laughter, the care,
The tenderness, the warmth, the beautiful skies……..


Oh she knows; she had a dark past which, when he found out, infuriated him.
Now he won’t forgive her, he wants nothing to do with her.
She has apologized too many times, but he won’t listen.
He’s hurting, she understands, but she knows she has changed.


She knows she’s not that person anymore.
She knows she loves him,
She knows she can make him the happiest man alive,
She has tried to tell him that, she has begged at his feet,
She has fought for him; she has given her heart to him.


But still, he has insulted her,
Thrown her out and told her she doesn’t deserve him.
She feels she can’t blame him; after all she is the black sheep
She is trying to understand him; he really did love her;
He really did try to forgive her; He really did try to stay with her.
But his heart gave way, and he can’t have her anymore.


Her eyes are clouding with tears, her heart is pouring,
There is a pain so sharp like she has been wounded afresh.
“Oh God, give me strength. Let things be okay,” she hears herself whisper.
She chokes back tears, letting air out slowly, she composes herself.


“Looking good, Emma,” he says, pulling her out of her deep thoughts
“Y…Yeah, Hi Derek,” She listens to her voice, its husky.
“Damn,” she curses softly
“Let’s just sign the papers, okay,” he says


She looks at him, mouth dry, she realizes that there is no need for words
It’s all gone…. she makes a mental note as she shakes his hand
Sitting down, she waits patiently as he pulls papers from his briefcase
He pushes them towards her, she looks at them….
The last traces of her four year marriage!


She looks up; he’s watching her, a smack at the corner of his mouth.
She picks up a pen, she feels sick!
She closes her eyes and breathes out slowly.
Flipping the papers, she finds the strength to sign.
She doesn’t need to read, she just has to sign.


She is through; she knows what she has done…
She knows he is leaving, but she won’t look up
All she knows is that she loves him still…….

There is still Love for the heartbroken

February 1, 2012 2 comments

She wakes up in the middle of the night,
Then it occurs to her, insomnia has already crept in
She puts on her bed light and opens her novel,
She tries to read but nothing goes in.
All she can think about is how he hurt her,
How he cheated on her and left her to fend for herself and her two babies


She looks down at her pillow; she can’t believe how pathetic it looks,
Tainted from crying the previous night and the nights before that.
Life has had a way of making her loath the sunset
Her life is a gripping reminder of the pain she has suffered
In the hands of people she trusted.
She hears a small coo…. from down the hall,


She slips on her sandals and trots to her two sons’ bedroom
Gently pushing the door she walks to their bedside.
Her three year old son is suckling his thumb,
While the one year old has snuggles his shawl close to his nose,
And is imitating a nursing young
Her heart gives away as she tacks their sheets around them


She looks at their faces, then she realizes,
“This is by far the best achievement of her life; oh how she loves them”
 Then a still small voice speaks to her…
“This may not be the image you had in mind,
But it unquestionably is better; because now you have a chance to be happy,
And a responsibility to make them happy too”
