eulogy virtues

Let it never be said
I came to this day
empty-headed:
that I confused the kind path
for the fast one.

Let it never be said
I came to this life
empty-handed:
that I dropped my heritage
to catch a mask.

Let it never be said
I came to you
empty-hearted:
that I took your blessings
and did not pass them on.

When it comes time,
let it be said,
though sometimes I spilled over
and made a mess,
I was never empty,
never empty,
never
empty.

  1. I missed your old post! I have only discovered this blog last year and never had the chance to read all of them. A lot has happened in life I guess. I’ve been digging the web but couldn’t find any traces of your old stories. Even the 2012 post from year back I am so craving to read them. Please let me know where can I read your old posts.

    I am so much fascinated and absorbed with your stories. My husband is Indian and I am Filipina. Since then I have been so attached to Indian culture and everything else that burgeons it.

    Your stories were beautiful. But you know that already.

    I am deeply touched. So I hope you give me an exception – in case you intentionally removed them from web already for personal reasons…

    Love and Prayers…

    1. Thank you, Jen. It always means a lot to know someone is reading. I actually pulled the posts to begin compiling them into books. The first of which is due out next month. And, because I don’t want it to just be for those who can afford it, I’ll release the posts in it, every so often. But as always to my readers, if there’s a specific one you want, I’ll send it to you. πŸ˜€ Much love to you and yours.

      1. Well that’s so cool if you’re going to release a book soon! Can’t wait!

        I love to read your previous stories. How your blog started. What things you were writing back then, And I want to read about you love story with Dave even if I know it hurt so much. It was a beautiful kind of pain. Your stories and the way you relay it to all of us – are just fascinating.
