A Beautiful Lie

a beautiful lie, joys of joel musings on life and death, truth and lies
A Beautiful Lie – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com

As i look at the flowers and the busy people visiting their departed loved ones, i can’t help not to ask why all soul’s day is not just an ordinary day

Looking far beyond sometimes a temporary life is seen with much significance than the permanence of the real life beyond, if there’s really one.

Who am i to question it as there’s a right time to know it. What a beautiful lie if this life is the only one and the painful truth will make me gasped beyond wonders when i’m at the other side.

Hoping that from this time on, i will always be grateful for every minute that was given and learn to appreciate life’s precious moments.

We watch.  We act.  We celebrate.
We create.  We participate.

Our life is our greatest masterpiece.

We live to tell our story.

And we are the stars.

Sleeping with The Enemy

Sleeping With The Enemy, joys of joel poems, musings, ramblings, split personality
Sleeping with The Enemy – when you are your worst enemy …………joysofjoel.wordpress.com

Leaving the glitter of the masquerade ball
this time not cautious if the mask will fall

as you sleep your way to fantasy kingdom
but woke up screaming for ultimate freedom

seeing yourself at the shiny mirror
hearing its voices you question in horror

why a different face welcomes you in the morning
when you know for sure you’re all alone that evening

So you open the window and look at the trees
to prove you’re awake and feel the breeze

unlocking the door and walking to the sunlight
spreading your wings like a new butterfly

but a strong wind stop you and halt your flight
you went back inside and see not a light

why a sudden darkness confuses you now
you just woke up and it’s still morning somehow

you look in the mirror and see the clock from behind
it’s almost midnight you know it’s a lie

you run to the backdoor and see if it’s true
that the sun is gone and why it’s totally blue

until you fell on the floor and see
the mask that you wear last night at the party

but who is wearing the mask you’re touching
when memory and reality are both contradicting

fate is your destiny and insanity is certainty
because you are sleeping with your own enemy.

Pebbles in My Shoes

pebbles in my shoes, joys of joel short story, from alleys to highway
Pebbles in My Shoes – – – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com


Then it showed me the way with flickering lights and buzzing bumble sound.  Not leaving through the main hallway but through the backdoor leading to some alleys.

My walk being halted by  pebbles in my shoes, picking up the pieces and throwing those pebbles away.  To my surprise a car slowed down, a stranger inviting me for a ride.

With gratitude i declined and noticed the damaged window shield.  How those tiny rocks so quickly cracked the stranger’s car was beyond me.

And if circumstances are seeking its revenge by slowly enticing me to ride then surely blowing its horn is not a welcome sight.

The  irony of courtesy and ambivalence courting dangers and respect.  Now, where else would i go when i took off my shoes so there won’t be  any pebbles to halt my motion?

But  pebbles still seep into my sole now that i’m barefooted.  Damn if you do, damn if you don’t.  Life is clever and i’m not.

So i continue walking in the alleys searching for the main road.  Who cares how long it would take me.  What matters this time is i know where it will take me.
