She resides beneath
Absent of light
Her depth a bottomless void
Darkness eternally cast
Upon beautiful reefs
In wonder corals of color bleed
She dares to venture up above
Where at times the light of moon
Shares her illuminating love
As the waves gently rock
And her dreams are set adrift
She floats in her scenic ocean
Counting stars in numeric motion
When at times she finds her world
Kissed by fog's obscurity
She listens to the ocean's sounds
Men at Sea
Fog horn blown
Waves that crest and crown
Seagulls with songs of their own
On nights when stars twinkle bright
When the eastern wind blows right
When the tide is high
She often wonders reasons why
To lay on golden sands
To hold another's hand
To feel another's lips
By means of gentle kiss
To fall in love with the sunrise
To wake bathed in twilight
To her this all seems a tale
Her lonely heart must tell
For she's of the sea
Destined forever to be
In her depth
Beautiful and free

My last night in Ubud and will definitely miss the relaxing pace of life and sheer beauty of this wonderful island paradise.
I heard Brene Brown read this out on the Oprah podcast. Omg. My heart truely burst and I immediately wanted to have it as my family manifesto too. Daring Bravely in on my book list to read.
Sometimes when you lose yourself at the hands of another, you need the help of others to find yourself again.
When Evelyn seizes the opportunity to flee her abusive husband’s clutches, she finds herself lost and alone. A meeting with a police officer leads her on a path she hadn’t expected. When that path suddenly changes and she is forced to ditcheverything during a near miss with her husband, she finds herself again at the mercy of strangers. Slowly, Evelyn begins to settle into a new life, only to have it come crashing down when her husband appears. She must decide whether to flee again or risk everything and stand her ground.

The Last Toilet That Nobody Uses//From An Introverts Desk ©
You are the last toilet that nobody uses.
The last public bathroom stall that very few people enter.
Expecting you to be filthy with urine drops on your plastic seat.
You are the last toilet people forget exists as it stays hidden behind a series of wide open doors.
Some, don’t want to walk that far to reach it and others, enter the first one they find as their underwear is already a little wet because their tiny bladder reached its early saturation point.
You are the last toilet that nobody uses and this metaphor may make you feel as if you smell like phenyl, that your jet is all rusty and your flush doesn’t work.
But consider this, you are the last toilet that nobody uses. They are so unlucky to not have opened the door to your lavender odonil smelling heaven, because little do they know how clean you are and have been because nobody uses you. How perfectly unblemished is that toilet seat people hardly ever sit on.
So if i say,
You are the last toilet that nobody uses,
How would you take it?
