Poetry - The Driver. Plus Thursday Moda #115.

I had every intention of having at least four outfit posts this week - Monday through Thursday - and also catch up on commenting and blog-reading. I do have a lot of outfits I have yet to post, after all. I did some of the second but I didn't blog at all... because life. I was off yesterday and decided to have a "me day" where I did things like go to the gym, clean my room, organize, take a nap or two, catch up with a friend, spend time with my sweet Vivi and such. It felt nice. It was nice. I need more of these days, myself. So here I am without edited photos or a new outfit post. But I do have a brand-new poem I just wrote for you, today and it is a good one. 

It is exactly the message I need to tell myself after the last couple of days I have had. I even wrote more about it on my most recent Instagram post - about editing my life. So check out my Instagram to see what's new there. I post new daily content on my Insta and Insta stories. Anyhow, before I get to the poem here is what I wrote about life lately and editing my life:
                    "2018 has been the year where I have edited my life, endlessly, cruelly, ruthlessly, absolutely!! Taking all the negativity away and closing the doors off to all those people who are a constant bad seed in my life and try to take me down every chance they get. This year l have learned to look deep down inside my heart and believe that everything happens for a reason; that I am stronger than anyone gives me credit for; that the root of all evil lies within each malicious thing people say; that we can choose to be kind and/or silent or be aggressive and respond in the same way. This year I keep choosing #selfjoy #everyday because I can and because I want to. This year I choose to be happy despite of the unhappiness surrounding me. I love my life as is and I will love it more a year from now. I love my daughter unconditionally and I will choose what's right for her, every day. I will protect both of our happiness at every cost!! Today I choose to live as I throw away the trash others try to "sell" me and kill them with my genuine smile as they walk away without fulfilling their purpose. Today I also embrace God as he is the only one who can judge me. So, if you have a lot of spam in your life too, I suggest you edit it as well. Make your life your own masterpiece and continue improving it each day!"

Now, on to the poem. Hope you like it!

The  Driver.
(May 2018.)

A path sometimes we didn't take
may cause us decisions we now have to make,
broken promises at the other end,
but a rainbow shows when you thought it can't!

Life is full of cycles and habits, routines and flow,
a magazine full of pages we filled with truth and some glow,
some pictures are un-touched, raw and not our best,
some are like the selfies with filters we use to no rest!

Some days feel like Instagram snaps of beauty and fluff,
some days we look like shit and we cannot bluff,
some nights call for the most amazing intimacy with that special someone,
some nights we are by ourselves and no romance in sight, just alone!

...In spite of what happens, when and how,
we continue to grow as we cry our eyes out,
emotions filling the soul and memories unfolding,
what if's and questions we can't answer, keep rising...

We are like a plant that goes through every step of blooming,
we live every season through rain, thunderstorm, sunshine and snowing,
we have batteries that sometimes expire or simply don't work,
but we wake up each morning still ready to re-charge!

Because you can't let one single event, year or even a decade
damage your happiness, ruin the rest of your life,
you can choose to dwell and fill up entire tissues,
or you can choose to move on and remember everyone has issues...

So take your issues and make a decision now,
follow your heart and let your sparkle glow,
let out the inner child within you and make a mistake or two,
don't drive yourself crazy, in this life the driver are you!

Due to working all day and also due to a horrible migraine I have nothing prepared as a new Thursday Moda post. If I wake up OK Thurs AM I may put something together. But either way I won't sweat it lol. I am leaving the linkup at the end of this post though. Have a great rest of the week of I don't see you on the blog until Monday. =)


  1. This is a beautiful poem! Well done!

  2. This is such a great pouring of feelings, Ada!! I love how you even reference Instagram...

  3. That seems so therapeutic to tell us this and we're privileged that you shared with us. Very feeling poem.

  4. Take all the "me time" you need Ada. It's important to step away sometimes!

  5. I think this time of year is just so busy and I've been struggling with keeping the blog going... I've cut back on the number of posts lately, not because I don't have ideas... I just don't have the time. I am glad you got a me day in for yourself! Those are so important. I hope your migraines get better soon, they just sound terrible! You poor thing!! I hope you get some relief soon!


  6. Hi Ada,
    I think that sounds great removing people or things that are negative as why expend energy on negative people? Good you got a "me" day as everyone needs time out for themselves, now and again. Lovely poem.

  8. We all have days like this, Ada. Good for you for giving in--you deserve it. Lovely poem.

  9. Days spent relaxing and doing whatever the day allows are so wonderful. I really hope you're feeling better. Taking time off is much needed!


  10. Glad you got some me time


  11. This is a beautiful poem. I hope you are feeling better Ada.

    Xx, Nailil

  12. Me times are always needed but finding them are sometimes difficult. I am glad you were able to get a day to yourself though and to enjoy it the way you want it to be enjoyed. I agree with your Instagram post. I don't like negativity and I steer clear away from it. While not all negativity is bad there are some that just eats away at you. For example, friends that aren't really friends. This is something I have learned to let go and accept. Clearing them out though was a great huge relief and made room for other folks that have come into my life so much more worthwhile. So yes, I can relate. Sending you a lot of love and hugs Ada. Happy early Friday!
