    Ain't no need taking big steps in baby shoes
    In due time, the pace will fall in with the race.

    Mad about Monday
    Unlike any other day
    Wake me up
    I'd be wide awake
    Singing with the rays
    Grateful for new day
    Reveling the aura of curation
    I draw a breath of panache
    Bet you'll catch me smiling
    Silently maybe glowering
    Masquerading whilst you blink
    Undeniably contented for sure
    Something about Monday
    Special in so many ways
    Captivating titillation
    Spur rumpled hopes anew
    Rekindling deaden spirit
    Bringing forth liberation
    Whispering you got to try again
    Enlivening dreams once more
    Venting freshness for another start
    Monday drizzles confidence
    With the air of focus to achieve all over.

    Nobody will award you for the choices you make,
    maybe criticise you still, but you will be fulfilled living life on your own terms.
    Stay true to yourself.

    Opening and closing lines "once upon a midnight dreary" by Edgar Poe.
    ...................................................................................

    Once upon a midnight dreary
    She's a battered beauty
    Enslaved in a lovelorn prison
    Whipping love slash kiss goodnight
    With every touch purplish sketch draw stripes

    Latter days did promise dreams
    "Had I known" the beastly deeds
    Her falling rivers travel wild
    Not even desperation could console her tired lamentations

    Bedraggled in a shackled union
    Her love nest casted a cubed illusion
    Marital plunder mercilessly ravage her sweetness
    "I do" vows desecrated to savage bitterness

    Twinging ears erect deafened fences
    Barricaded to beastly foreboding
    Not one visible finger could swipe the tear
    Hunkering for a cold shouldered embrace
    She prays for her desolate remains

    A miserably fated soul
    Stranded in a wrong corner
    For alms she begs in love's warmer
    Misfit to wander this mountain of reckoned murder

    No road to run
    No where to turn
    Coerced in iron clippings
    Sprawled to display
    Contrived doxy
    Sired for life with stilled attachment
    Once upon a midnight dreary.

    We were not always like this
    We were better than this
    We watched our world change
    Little pieces began to come off our hearts
    Gradually chunky bits went missing
    Horripilation tattooed misanthrope
    Standing Idly, cracks became shatters, their rough edges metamorphosing into ginormous ruins, that keeps cutting through our daily lives.
    Love used to sit on street corners and door posts.
    Neighbours did not hold back kindness to share spare crusts.
    Societal values had more impact.
    Humanity existed, like it was made from the start.
    Harmony gave way for peace to flourish.
    Through the tunnel of lost morality, happily, humans throng in relish.
    Without regard for integrity, honesty spews apathy.
    With buried sympathy, condemnation tappers harsh judgments.
    Set up laws of protection, casted down by governments of oppression.
    The very simplicity of peace, dented in hardened souls of rancor.
    Dilapidated aren't we?
    Such a mess!
    Nevertheless,
    In optimism, this shaky hand burns a candle of hope, in the light of prayer, believing somewhere deep within, from the scant goodness left in this world still, that we will find a way to make our ways again and return the true identity of the humanity exiled to inferiority.

    Love sheaths the ugliness
    of imperfection
    In unconditional devotion.

    Listening to the pain you have no remedy for
    Is the healing you unknowingly render in the need for relief.

    Ocean

    Supple waves sedate
    Paresthesia joy drowning
    Rapt in ocean's charm.

    Parfait

    Berries, grapes some nutty mix
    Vanilla sweet mash
    Bits, bites some creamy banter
    Yogurt dream dessert
    Delectably yum
    Heavenly
    Cool!
