The Empty Bench by Joel F

the empty bench, joys of joel quotes, poem about self respect and ownership
The Empty Bench – – – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com

Nothing to do
so i look for photos i’ve taken

Random everyday sceneries
long captured by my lens

Creating a storyline
for my crazy mind

The pictures and the lines
are all mine

So please don’t steal it
if you want to use it

enjoy it and don’t be cruel

A Quote by Oscar Wilde

a quote by oscar wilde, joys of joel poems, poem about being yourself, identity and uniqueness, car photo
A quote by Oscar Wilde, Poetry by Joel F – – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com

“Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you are born to stand out?”

The movie What A Girl Wants was a bit trashy but at least it gave memorable punchlines. Or should i say it’s a Dr. Seuss’ quote that was used by the movie?

Either way, it reminds me of A quote by Oscar Wilde which truly fits this scene just like this beetle car that caught my attention.

Achievements and setbacks, trials and success. joys and sorrows. It makes one unique and just like this beetle that’s stuffed with fancy things we normally ignore until it was collectively decorated. Only then we appreciate the end result. And yes i can say you are only one.  Unique and Decorated.

Forsaken

Forsaken, joys of joel poems, poem about forsaken love and abandonment
Forsaken – joysofjoel.wordpress.com

Your shooting star
lights someone’s dreary sky

No matter how far
he feels the spark

Your starry eyes
ignoring the signs

A whisper of hope
after hearing the lullaby

The dawn has spoken
its golden moment

Broken but not frozen
in a glimpse of a second

You turn around
she found his sound

Together they’re in heaven
Now you’re forsaken.

A Quote by Ernest Hemingway

A quote by Ernest Hemingway, joys of joel poems, quote about broken heart
A Quote by Ernest Hemingway – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

 

Nothing could be so true
what Ernest Hemingway once knew

So i speak and cite this creed
everytime i feel the grief

Even if the world has torn me apart
and fractured my loving heart

I’ll never blame those days i kissed
the monster of my youthful beast.

A Quote by Robert Frost

A Quote by Robert Frost – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

 

No need to escape from all the pain.
Through the fire or through the rain
There’s no way out
to leave in vain

And if you leave
You must go through
accept the view
then say adieu.

Truth or Dare

truth or dare, poetry,  the games that you play, prove your love
The games that you play

Love is a gamble and not a game.  A gamble means taking risks, a game means to cheat.  But if love is a game, i’ll challenge you to play it. Tell me the truth and i’ll dare you to prove it.

Fair Expectations

fair expectations, life is fair its the world thats not, expect greater, expect the unexpected
Expect The Unexpected

Yes,  it’s your nature to be fair but it’s also the scorpion’s nature to sting.  The world is a huge jungle, if you want to get your lion’s share you should expect the unexpected.  Do not expect to be unscathed or unbitten while you hike that trail.  Fair expectations and all those complications, a truthful confirmation that it won’t be easy to fulfill your journey but it will be all worth it.

The Green Goblin

The green goblin quote from the movie spiderman

Yes, we learned from the heroes but sometimes the bad guys also have something worthwhile to say and we learned so much lessons from the antagonists who gave us our bad days.  And nothing could be more true than this quote from the green goblin in the movie spiderman.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Story is Not Over Yet

joys of joel musings, the story is not over yet, write your story, poetry, graphic arts
The Story Is Not Over Yet – – – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com

Staring at the blank moving wall,  now called wallpaper, the memories keep flashing like a movie scene. I’m still in a state of confusion as to what usually follows after finishing the sentence not with a period but with a colon that never belong to a conjunction of a subliminal past and paradoxical present.

i truly cannot understand why a tinge of justification was needed for that fleeting moment of indecision or bad judgment.  Nope, it is not to be judged, i know in due time it is only to be understood.

The truth in not knowing the value of the moment until it became a memory.  That obsequious feeling of driving a wheel ,  disregarding the traffic rules inspite of  knowing that dangers will be waiting for breaking the stone that rocks the cradle.

The cradle that was all taken care of from infancy to puberty.  The adolescence of the mind brainwashing humans that ignorance is a bliss. Until adulthood teaches you that it’s only a bliss until you take the risk.

The paradox of following your bliss believing that you can strive for anything.  Anything is possible,  even screaming sky is the limit.   You can have anything but not everything.  An oxymoron parable that sounds better than the aesop’s fable.

The fable that shows human  frailties using the art of narrating the pros and cons of an action with its lessons.  Realization of the long forgone wishes.  Pushing boundaries and eventually stepping over them.  The pursuit to fill your bucket list with the unending whispers that the story is not over yet but too late to edit the page.

Yes, the book was already printed,  but the story is not over yet.

Bottled Up

bottled up, A poem about speaking one;s mind, joys of joel poems, courage to say no
Bottled Up – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

When you are in a glass case of emotions
and everything is bottled up,
why wait for someone to unscrew the cap?
Let it all out and speak up.

 

Never take someone’s feelings for granted
you just don’t know how much courage
it took them to show it.

Never run away from your feelings
because someday
you will still face it

Time is not an enemy
but it is neither a friend
if you keep running.

Roll the bottle
shake it up
break it if you have to.

The shattered pieces may hurt you.
The broken splinters may scar you
but then who am i to teach you?

I’m just as coward as you.
