Strokes of the Paint Brush

It’s been long since the last time paint brushes were used,
It’s been quiet since the canvas wore the shades of vermilion;
It’s been slow yet several thoughts were rumbling deep inside the head…

So now it’s time to pour it all,
Now it’s time to pour it All,
Now it’s time to pour it All…

Happiness will come along,
Indeed happiness will come along.

Thoughts: Being alive is precious. The dark world will want to take one down. But one cannot lose the precious life because the evil portrayed it so convincingly.

There’s always hope. Tomorrow will be better. Keep believing in yourself.

Natural Downfall

Even the strongest got weaknesses,
The wisest got imperfections,
The hopeful got depression,
The patient one got complaints…

So what do they do when they’re not at their best?

Fake it, panic, freak out or runaway?!
No.
It’s a natural downfall but for a while indeed.

Its because nature wants to show-
What will happen when they are at their worst,
That they should never be proud,
That there are much more to improve and to realize,
Much more to explore and to understand.

As perfection is a lie;
And, learning got no ending…

Beautiful Delusion

Covered with pink rose petals… 

The green field, covered with pink petals here and there,
Seemed like a massacre at first; 
To get the full view one will have to see from top.

She rolled her eyes looking at the extravagant situation!
Then she screamed!
Why?!

At a close distant, behind the willow trees, there’s a tree house! 

Inside the tree house, fairy lights were covered all over the ceiling. 
Lava lamps along with the gigantic moon lamp was nicely organized highlighting pastel colored splash paintings on the wall. 

A printed version on canvas of the famous mural ‘Girl with Balloon’ by Banksy was displayed on the other side of the wall. 
It reminded her trip to Amsterdam, visiting Moco Museum. 

There was fluffy pillows all over the floor that seemed like clouds…

She tiptoed and went close to the window to see the view from top & witnessed pink rose petals that seemed like caused a massacre earlier, actually crafted one beautiful dream catcher!

About The Ending:

The last paragraph of this post was a bit different. For some reason changed the dark ending. Life is complicated and not about rainbows and butterflies. But to justify the title ‘Beautiful Delusion’, couldn’t finish the way thought before.

Though in the end it’s all a delusion, doesn’t mean we will have to surrender ourselves to life’s complications but to stay hopeful for the good stuffs and keep striking back.
