This is my second post on GuestAholic Month and my first to surprise and nominate someone. 🙂
There have been a lot of people who’ve been following me lately and I want to show my appreciation by showing my favourite posts, written by them. So for this first nomination, I nominate Èlan vital, whose poem ‘A Poem of Questions’ is not only uplifting, it’s inspirational. So, Èlan vital, this post is dedicated to you. 🙂

Also, he likes to talk about philosophy, travelling, movies and listening to music. But Èlan vital‘s belief is ultimate beauty, how it lies within everyone, and how we can achieve happiness and satisfaction.
A Poem of Questions
A deep sense of excitation
A way of hiding an outbursting emotion.
An expression of our loving heart
A mind void of any desires after much trials and tribulations.
A state of stable mind
A way to surrender against the will of God.
A rock steady resolve
A choice to kneel before destiny.
A thing to celebrate
Sulk over the uncertainty of life.
A gift in disguise
A period of imprisonment without our guilt or birthright.
Originally written by Èlan vital
This is another poem I wrote for my dance lesson. I came across the poem after finding another fact (from a website I cannot remember) about a connection between the bible and slavery.
Please note that this poem is only written, based on fact; I’m against slavery and I have no interest in arguments for it. I only write to raise issues for why slavery is wrong.
“Do not disobey”,
“Do not mess about and play”,
These are the rules
And they are here to stay.
To make a master happy,
Is to be quick and snappy.
If you please him,
You’ll be awarded with a grin.
Do everything he’ll say;
Make sure you’ll serve and obey.
You’ll be rewarded handsomely,
If he sees that you are not lazy.
But break the rules
And you’ll be punished
For no likes fools,
Sinners and cowards.
The bible says a slave
Should treat his master with respect,
So give all you’ve got and collect,
Otherwise, you’ll receive an invitation
Which will lead you to punishment and your grave.

Light as a feather
And soft as the rain,
I stop, listen and take the ocean in,
Whatever the day and the weather.
The smell of caffeine,
Roaming up in the air;
Your mind feels fresh and clean,
When the world shatters in a tear.
The taste, so luring,
Smooth and exciting.
An adventure so daring
And the texture is so inviting.
Life without coffee
Is like bread with no butter;
Cause if we’re not happy,
Then, there’ll be no sweet coffee. 🙂
Why do you laugh at me?
When I’m working very hard?
Do you think something’s funny?
When I’m trying to work and do my part?
Why do you laugh at something else?
When I’m trying to push, show and share?
Your laughter is making me feel anxious
And I carry more weight than I can bear.
I’ve lost faith and hope,
No matter how I tried;
“It’s no use”, I said,
So, I broke down and cried.
So the next time you see me,
Just let to let you know,
If you are going to laugh and crow,
Stop, think and see
The girl and her feelings (even though you can’t see).
Every night, I sleep,
But not very deep;
Tiredness over comes
While my head is filled with different nums and sums.
My entire self is overloaded
With chores and work,
For nothing is more frustrating
Than writing reports and homework. 😞

Gently along the shore;
I mediate with calm,
While I walk along the white, smooth floor.
