It's been a while

I agree,
That it's been a while
It's been some time
I know

I believe
That it'll all come back
It's been some time
I agree

I understand
It won't be as great
Because it's been a while
I know

I assert
The time has done me good
That it's been some time
I agree

The Horrors

Dim, the lights flicker
Dark, the lights are no longer
Scuffles, something moves
Shrieks, something dares her

Breathing in, inhaling poison
Breathing out, unable to let it go
Close her eyes, the horrors sing
Open them, the horrors dance


Burning, her throat has retched
Parched, yet it longs for more
Lying, she needs to stretch
Standing, she shall soon collapse

Close her eyes, the horrors sing
Open them, the horrors dance

Always

Together, always
Separate, always
Chained, always
Free, always

Destined, always
Lost, always
Decisive, always
But what was always?

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Hello Everyone! I'm back with a book review after a long time- but I promise this one was worth waiting for. I'll be reviewing Anthony Doerr's "All the Light We Cannot See" today, and trust me, just as soon as you read the book you'll understand why I love it so much.
 Doerr's novel, set in the Second World War, revolves around the life of a blind French girl and an orphaned German Boy. Flitting through years and countries, Anthony Doerr depicts marvelously the struggles of life during a war, no matter which character he is writing about.
 Marie-Laure is a French teenager who lives with her father, and has had deteriorating eye-sight since she was 6 years old. Her father is a locksmith at a museum, and guided her brilliantly through her blindness by building her a small model of the neighborhood so that she could walk home alone.
 Werner Pfennig is a young German orphan living in with his sister in a children's home. He is extremely inquisitive and has a great talent for engineering. He is discovered by a Hitler Youth academy, and is sent off to attend the school as a student.
 The story weaves through both characters lives before and after the war. Although their countries were on opposing sides of a war, and Werner's instructions were to kill anyone like Marie-Laure, they find an inexplicable connection.
  Doerr writes with great sensitivity, and the emotion seems to leap into the reader's heart as the story goes on. The author moves between dates and locations and maintains a great deal of suspense through the whole novel. He also assures us of some happiness in the character's lives, although the predominant tone is one of sadness, and is reflected in the character's dialogue.
 The horrors of war are emphasized through some of the minor characters, such as Werner's sister, Jutta, or his friend Frederick. The book does depict some of the more traumatizing aspects of military school and life under Hitler's rule, however, Doerr does not abstain from depicting the terror of living in occupied French life either. No side is portrayed as the "bad guy', and the book focuses more on the characters than the countries they belong to.
 Anthony Doerr is definitely a worthy winner of the Pulitzer Prize- and has shown the world of writing  a new take on the much exhausted topic of the Second World War. I'd recommend all of you to try out this book- but be warned, it is not a light read.

Among The Stars

As she lay among the stars
She breathed the light of honesty
She rid herself of deception
She found herself in a pure world

As she lay among the stars
She made her commitment
She made herself better
She blossomed into being

As she lay among the stars
She guided the world
She grew into a true human
She cleared herself of fears

But it was only,
As she lay among the stars
That these thoughts were the truth
For when she lay upon the grass
What she was among the stars
Was a mere memory

Saturday Snapshot-10/09/2016

Hey everyone, I'm back with another Saturday Snapshot*! Unfortunately, my mini-series on my trip to Turkey has come to an end. This week, I'll be sharing some pictures of traditional celebrations in Mexico that honour the dead on "Dia de Los Muertos". I lived there for a while, and was fortunate enough to be able to view and partake in  the festivities.

Craving in your heart

If there's too much
There's pain in your mind
If you don't have any
There's a craving in your heart

No matter how much you take
No matter how little 
There'll be a craving in your heart

Whether it be to fulfill
Or to complete
By necessity
Or because of that craving in your heart

The path

There's an endless path
Guiding your life
It's never supposed to end

When you have to walk in the forest
On a path that doesn't exist
Remind yourself
You're helping to elongate
The path you were once on

There's an endless path
Guiding your life
It's never supposed to end

One day you'll find
That it's over
And you'll be lost
But when you journey on

Remind yourself
You're helping to elongate
The path that you were once on
