    In the past

    I was a girl with big dreams but none know how broken this girl was
    She always put on that bright smile that blind everyone eyes but she was a lost soul
    She's got a dream but it was killed within her
    She was told she can never amount to anything in life
    She was cast out by friends and family
    She was laughed upon by loved ones
    She was broken but they all saw the mirage of the girl not the lost soul.
    She called upon people to rescue her but no answer
    She turn to '' God and asked Am I really insignificant and worthless'' and God answered NO my child you are strong and you have fought and won a battle others fail
    You My child is a blessing to mankind and the humanity at large.
    Then this little lost soul told herself I am ME I am strong and I stand for something.

    // Believe in your self and never give up if you can fight millions sperm unknownly and won then you can fight a few more on the earth and win also.//

    Their perspective...

    So, they think of me as the old coot, with nothing to boot, zilch to contribute! You guessed right, just coz I'm cruising past the sixties, perceived as old and decayed, they have drawn their conclusions. Written me off, even chosen my coffin. How presumptuous!

    In their minds, I have served my purpose on this planet, no more of use, rather a burden. They have started to deny my existence, wishing to place on the mantelpiece, my garlanded photo in a frame. Just a photo of me in remembrance. How desperate can they get?

    I refuse to oblige them. I'm here to stay for another decade, to live life to the fullest. For life for me, has just started. But they don't understand, nor wish to take cognizance of my presence. I wonder why? Is it because they feel threatened? Again I ask why? We belong to different generations, with enough space for co-existence.

    I know for sure they abhor my confidence, my sharp tongue as I give back to them for criticism towards me levelled. They envision me as the meek old mouse, fawning and begging for their attention, requiring me to fit into roles they envisaged. But I broke all that and told them up to their face 'I will live on my terms. Non-negotiable!

    And now they laugh behind my back, sometimes, up to my face, whispering 'she's gone bonkers'. Let them think what they want, my pen will expose their thoughts. My pen is mightier than any sword!

    Oh! My humankind,
    Your Achilles heel
    Is peculiar,
    But never skive off
    To ameliorate skill
    And who knows
    You can emulate me one day
    And competitive ambience
    Can render a kingdom
    Of goodness
    Where you can be a Samaritan God
    I can be your staunchest Archangel.

    Mystical mavens mindfully musing
    Chortling cherubim cheerily cruising
    Daring daredevils do devilish deeds
    Chirpy churchgoers counting creeds
    Ghostly ghouls gregariously grin
    Wizened warlocks wage war and win
    Fantastical faeries fancifully fly
    Several seraphim soulfully sigh
    Numerous nymphs nestle all night

    Bedecked, was I
    By Luna's finest hues
    In a shroud of sparkling starlight
    Enrobed by lustrous blues

    The gladiolus greet me
    Throughout the gardens in the park
    After dozing through the day
    They're always wide awake at dark

    Surrounded by the sweet sounds
    Of nature's serenade
    I can hear the crickets chirping
    O'er yonder, in the glade

    The hooting of the night owl
    Assures me all is well
    Surveyor of the forest
    He's our trusty sentinel

    At last, the Earth falls silent
    And I embrace the quietude
    It's here, within these moments
    That the daytime is reviewed

    The darkness is a tonic
    That often leads us to be healed
    For the obscurity it offers
    Means that our truths can be revealed

    Oh nighttime, dearest nighttime
    I'm desirous of your bliss
    Wrap me in your dark embrace
    And grace me with your loveliness

    Alas, the dawn draws nearer
    Come be the company I keep
    Pray thee regale me with your splendor
    And when the sun's up, I shall sleep.

    I am the Adam's ale:
    I am the Adam's ale
    on which emotions float,
    anger meets me
    And gives me punishment.
    I am the Adam's ale
    on which emotions float,
    happiness meets me
    and I spread
    it through ripples to others.
    I am the Adam's ale
    on which emotions float,
    success meets me
    And it never
    gives me current of pride.
    I am the Adam's ale
    on which emotions float,
    failure meets me
    to become a drop
    to mix in my flow.

    This Is Me ❤

    A soul,sweet baptismal and crimson as dawn's frist dew drop,
    A heart which leaps and hops playing with littile babies and tykes,
    A mind which rejuvenates listening to its parents laughing and teasing each other non-stop ♡

    My precious Mumma says,
    You're my princess, whose family is her empire,
    Looking at her sparkling eyes i know,
    I am a warrior,making my family proud is my keenest desire

    A obstetrician yet a pediatrician at heart,
    I love celebrating my birthdays in their ward,
    Feeding them pastries and reading them "Harry Potter's"(1to7) every part

    When it downpours,I swirl, untroubled by the wet hairs sticking on my face,
    "Footy tipping" my bare feet,Swaying with the cold wind, oscillating my skirt with grace

    Celebrating my people, intending to spread love, joy and bliss with whatever i write and wherever i go,
    Oh, i love watching the full-moon,wishing on shooting-stars and i still open my mouth whenever i see freshly falling snow

    I am my darling papa's pride,
    My beautiful mumma's best friend,
    My impish yet cutest brother's support system,whose mischiefs are never going to end

    I think I'm a poetry, a song with a celestial core,
    Read me, sing me, lurk inside of me, and feel this galore

    I am a proton, with an aura of positivity around me,
    I play with my dolls sometimes, and trust me they still love to crown me

    Come with me and let's laugh at our silliest mistakes,
    Lets play like kids, gaze at the starry skies,lets party as we used to, watching cartoon and eating cakes

    A gemini literally coz a narcissist and empath,
    Perhaps both almost none,
    I am a paradox who lives in contradictions,
    Angelic devil manifested, a literal human oxymoron,
    When I say this, I am not talking in hyperboles,
    Just an ode to myself hoping it may also turn into my obituary,

    An eternal optimist living in a dystopia,
    Hopeful for perseverance of our species,
    But also gave up on humanistic ideas,
    Coz humanistic principles are ideal,
    We are intrinsically evil,
    Morality and ignorance mask our grim reality,
    Surrounded by landmines pretending all is hunky dory,
    We have only been able to buy few centuries of serenity,
    While we subject this planet as well as ourselves to some unimaginable catastrophes,

    Let's not get carried away and return to the protagonist of the story,
    Friends and family I have earned plenty,
    Coz the entity that expends is literally me,
    But I content when hiding away from the world,
    In my fortress of solitude, I prefer holed up,
    It has never been tiresome nor I have ever felt lonely,
    Introvert by nature exhibiting confidence while conversing,

    Humility is my sword, pride the hidden armour,
    Lazy to begin, a workhorse in action,
    Only way out, "through", when I demand diligence from myself,
    Elegant in defeat but can barely digest failure,
    Intelligent enough to know my limits,
    But dumb enough to push the boundaries,

    Materialism tempts me often but I tend to lean on spirituality,
    Thoughts good and bad both come to the palace that is my mind,
    Conscience rules over the kingdom and morality is the guiding light,
    I can only sleep sound if I don't end up being the reason of anyone's plight,

    Anxiety my constant companion throughout the journey,
    Tranquility is my soulmate, searching for her desperately,
    Patience I have shown while time gradually unravels my destiny,
    Believer in Karma or else already would have caused a mutiny,

    Introspection is a profound tool for personal progress, they say in philosophy,
    Aspiring poet that I am, may as well blurt it out weaving words through the tapestry of poetry...

    Elaborating on what makes me unique,
    Would make for quite a depressing story,
    A hypocrite prepared to work on my shortcomings,
    A mute loudmouth aspiring to shatter the spectrums,
    Scaling untold heights daily in my fantasies,
    I am the textbook definition of a human who is ordinary

    What makes me, ME ~

    I'm NOT for all.
    I am all four.
    I'm NOT alone, after all.
    'I Am Number Four.'

    I have 4...
    different personalities.
    While my Enneagram...
    is No. 4.

    1. My real self: Nuruliffa Emirah
    2. My manly self: Affilurun Harime
    3. My foreign self: No-eul Iva Emily
    4. My pious self: Arfiyah Khairunnisa

    Dissociative Identity Disorder @ DID
    Social anxiety disorder @ SAD
    Deep depression.

    I still stay up at some nights; Being nocturnal.
    Scared of nightmares; Insomniac; Still emotional.
    My sudden mental-breakdown is like a signal...
    that I'm depressed. �� Tears �� form a canal.

    I like alpacas and llamas.
    I like to binge-watch K-dramas.
    Sometimes, I have dilemmas.
    Stop all types of stigmas!

    My first name is Nuruliffa.
    At times, I want to go far...��‍♀️
    away and be the alpha...��
    of my new life. Insofar.

    Nurul means 'the light...
    of'; Of what? Dark night?
    Maybe!; I'll show my slight...
    smile �� to my Dark Knight.

    Dad said, Iffa means 'dew'. ��
    I like the sound of mew. ��
    I'm only known by a few.
    Hope no ��‍♀️ enemy. Phew! ��

    While, Emirah means 'princess.' ��
    I usually ate alone during recess.
    I often feel that, I am too much; �� An excess.
    Want love ❤️, health ��, happiness �� & success ��

    * 40 lines of prose + poem

    #miraquill #writersnetwork #ceesreposts #challenge #conceptprompt #unique_chall


    * I Am Number Four is a 2011 SciFi/Action movie

    * Only Schizophrenia is diagnosed by psychiatrists. While, DID, SAD & depression are known by my half-conscience. But, they did notice changes of my moods & personalities

    * Compare to Split movie and Kill Me, Heal Me Kdrama, I only have 4 different personalities, instead of 24 & 7.

    * I also have suicidal thoughts: (plus failed attempts)
    "Do you ever feel like want to kill yourself? Feel like doesn't want to live anymore? Better to just die?"

    * My psychiatrist asked me whether I still heard those thoughts, but, I lied to her by said "No", because I'm afraid if I tell the truth, I have to be in the psychiatric ward again & what worst is ECT! I don't want to do that ever again.

    My heart dwells by aggrandize
    I was summerised by alacrity.

    My birth was decided
    In the jems of pieses.

    My behaviour is sufficient
    For the beguile.

    My aim of constant
    Tactics is cognizant.

    My dear soulfull hearts
    Around feels convivial.

    My reflection on mirror
    Falls for innocence.

    My soul becomes
    Phlegmatic sometimes.

    My heart is always
    Ready to libertarian.

    My licentious
    Ends till the dead barriers.

    My writing adores
    The sweet grilters of tauri.

    My life is journey of
    Proxima century .

    To hear it told, there are people out there who may look like you, sound like you, act like you, or even have nearly the same talents and abilities as you; but despite all of that, thanks to the distinctiveness of DNA and the mystical make-up of the spirit or soul, no one out there could ever be exactly like you, because there is only one YOU in the universe... or shall I say YOUniverse?
    The point is, never before, now, or ever again has there been anyone exactly like you, anywhere in the known universe. So you're kind of a big deal, na? I'd say so! These contemplations have led me to the concept for this challenge.

    ▪In 40 lines or less, write a poetic piece describing what it is about you that makes you different or unique. Explain what sets you apart from all the rest. In other words, tell us what it is that makes you "you."

    ▪This should be a positive piece that focuses on the wonderfully unique aspects of yourself.

    ▪English only please, and be sure that your submission adheres to the terms of use of the forum.

    ▪This challenge will be open for the next 48 hours and is closed when it says "2d" in the upper right hand corner of this post.

    ▪Be sure to use #unique_chall in the caption area of your post so that I know you're participating in the challenge.

    Can't wait to read all about you!

    This is meant to be my submission to the cg_city_chall; however, last night I unexpectedly fell asleep for hours unaware (due to narcolepsy), and missed my own challenge. Unbelievable, eh?! ��
    Gotta play by the rules though, so I'm not hashtagging it. Thank you for reading!

    by Carolyn Glackin
    Though it's been told
    In timeworn tales
    Of that which soothes
    Thy mortal beast
    Throughout all
    My endless searches
    I've found naught,
    To say the least
    But one fine day
    I did find him
    We two were destined
    So it seemed
    Thus the future
    Now much brighter
    With such hope
    It finally gleamed
    I was his inamorata
    And he, my paramour
    But never could we know
    Just what the future
    Held in store
    It seems that time
    Will have its way
    Quite often sooner
    Then its due course
    And fate
    The grand decider
    Is the one
    We cannot force
    We were star crossed
    He and I
    Like Romeo and Juliet
    The slow demise
    Of what we were
    Is one I never shall forget
    We were those two ships
    Always passing
    Never meeting
    In the night
    One moment
    He was there
    In the next
    Gone, out of sight
    So in a twinkling
    'Fore I knew it
    'Twas all over
    In a blur
    And therein lies
    The culmination
    Of the city
    We never were.

    Our Failed City

    The man made jungle still hold my heart
    for you my love is still dwelling in those parts
    a skyline obstructed with buildings
    as the nightlife is possessed with busy thoughts
    the life we knew came to a close
    for our country love had been all but loss
    so tomorrow will bring a busy day for you
    while I ride a train leaving you
    our hearts will never build that city of love
    because of the separation of our hearts now we see
    ~the city we never were~

    Tears drains upon my cheeks
    as the scenery out the window and my thoughts meet
    your presence will be a skyscraper in my mind
    for the loss of us has this feeling of torturing time
    you chose the city over me
    yet I know I'm being selfish to your dreams
    so I left screaming in my heart
    at the visions of our happiness
    and at the thought of
    ~the city we never were~

    I thought we were built out of concrete and love
    that our foundation was built strongly to tower above
    our lives were intertwined on that river bank
    as it was you who I fishing for that day
    yet we're here separated on our journeys
    the noises of the train drown out my whimpering
    the noises of the city drown out your thinking
    our buildings of self are far away from each other
    as we both begin to accept our
    ~city we never were~

    The city we never were
    Like that of the Garden of Eden,the paradise was rare.
    The city of our imagination,
    The dream place of idealisation.

    The city we never were,
    Is in the present moment or nowhere.
    That's our mind's utopian vision,
    "Ou-topos",only a fictional destination.

    The city we never were,
    Is the illusion of a utopian city that we desire.
    The city with perfection,
    May we find that far away near the horizon.

    The city we never were,
    May be existing blurred somewhere.
    There can be the birth of future city of ecotopia,
    With idea of rehabilitation,pacifism,virtue and legitimisation of existence renew.

    The city we never were,
    At present can be unreal and blur.
    But our heavenly city of utopia,
    Will born as ecotopic city or else our fantasy will catastrophise into dystopia.

    Staring into fathomless sea
    Creatures dwelling in unknown city
    "The city we never were"
    Into the swirls of blue
    Flight to fantasy world
    Neptune and his kingdom
    None were into that realm
    Sometimes noxious!Is it wrath?
    Wish to explore reason for wrath
    A fairy with beautiful wings
    Fulfilled the wish of mine
    Turned me into a Mermaid
    Aye!A beautiful fishy Maiden
    Mesmerising acquatic world
    A fashion show of brilliant striking fishes
    Roaming around everywhere freely
    None to dominate,nor scary
    Wriggling to unexplored land
    Apart from swirls and twirls of man
    A deep dive into Marine city.
