The irrationality of jealousy; focusing on the wrong variable.


Ms X is looking at a reflection of herself in a mirror. She is wearing a white dress and a high heel. Ms Zee comes to stand right next to her, wearing the dark version of the same dress but there’s something about Zee’s dress that stands out and it doesn’t seem to have anythingContinue reading “The irrationality of jealousy; focusing on the wrong variable.”

Two steps back, one step forward; a propelling paradox?


I would rather bathe in the sun Where my cheeks need no cheer to inflate I would rather not feel the pain of a thorn For is pain not just a reminder of an internal mishap? But life is full of contrasts. How does one perceive a shadow if it is not outlined by aContinue reading “Two steps back, one step forward; a propelling paradox?”

The 70*7 Forgiveness rule


Prior to writing this blog, I reached out to a Theologian friend of mine to find out why Peter, in Matthew 18: 21-35, suggested that forgiving 7 times was a fair standard. This is what he said; I think there was a Rabbinic debate about it and it was considered that forgiving your neighbor 3Continue reading “The 70*7 Forgiveness rule”

Freedom From the Ruins(a poem)


They said to throw the hurt out of the window. Which part of it goes though? And which part remains? For I may have invested myself a little too much to be feeling this excruciating pinch; or so it felt, at first. Once the ice melts into the water, does the chill it gives decipherContinue reading “Freedom From the Ruins(a poem)”

The communication of non-communication; building a reputation of trust and respect


This month has been special. For a month dedicated to sharing about unconditional love, it has truly been a trying one for me. I am of the opinion that the five love languages are not exhaustive and I personally believe that every person appreciates each of the five love languages to a certain extent- IContinue reading “The communication of non-communication; building a reputation of trust and respect”

00:54 hours- October 21, 2020


Awake, at 00:54 hours The clock ticks clockwise, and then anti clockwise. I stay awake, emotionally paralyzed The críes keep me awake The pain immobilizes me The wailing tortures me And to think that the culprits lay at night, tapping their shoulders ‘well done’….. Evil parades on our streets with such audacity! When did weContinue reading “00:54 hours- October 21, 2020”

A love allegory (An exposition)

Love personified


Now I stay in love. Is love a place then?  Is it already morphed or is it continually metamorphosing? If love depended on gravity, would a fall mean stagnation or a state where one continually chooses to be low for the benefit of a SHARED Love? We’ve often treated love as an verb. The conceptContinue reading “Love personified”

Love Whispered(A poem)


Love whispered; I made it to you. I finally made it home, to your heart; the gateway to your life’s course. I found the key that you had tossed at the bottom of the ocean and I navigated my way right back to you. I made my way to you, yet you shut me IN.Continue reading “Love Whispered(A poem)”

HOME; WHEREVER I AM (A POEM)


Inspired by a recent dialogue with a friend Clearly, if I walked on by and I could recognize it, I might call it home. If my lips could part to allow the air through my larynx an escape, without my brain processing its phonetics, it certainly would feel like home. If the thought of itContinue reading “HOME; WHEREVER I AM (A POEM)”
