Did her petrified shrieks not remind you of your mother? As the flames feasted on her weathered skin Did his whimpers not remind you of your son? As you cracked his weakened and broken body Did her piercing scream not remind your of your daughter? As you violated and traumatised her growing but tired form Did his despairing cries not remind you of your father? As you made each deadly strike, tearing flesh and disfiguring every bone Did you not hear the fevered howls of your own brood? As the ferocious flames consumed whole villages As masses became trapped in a web of deadly bullets As the living wailed over the defeated remains of dust and corpses •• •• Were you deaf to the accusing echoes of their dense bones? Whilst you hacked and cracked mercilessly Did blood cease to course through their veins? Whilst you rinsed crimson droplets from the newborn to the elderly Were you blind to the hues of pink of their exposed muscles? As you shredded their dignity and existence ruthlessly •• •• Did their skin not mirror yours? •• •• Did their skin not mirror yours? As you attacked. As you raped. As you murdered. As you massacred. •• •• Did you not hear the voice of you own soul desperately whisper? This is brutal. This is inhumane. This is unjust. This is wrong. •• •• A capture of neighbouring Bangladesh 🇧🇩 which has been the place of refuge for thousands of the displaced. The Rohingya crisis has been on-going for a number of years though world media is only now waking up and smelling the coffee & that too based on intense social media outrage. I still remember seeing a horrific image in 2015 of a dried up well with the hanged corpses of a mother & her two toddlers side-by-side. An image that will always haunt me. It escapes me how people can inflict these crimes on individuals who share the same flesh, blood and organs as them. Do their minds not scream in abhorrence of their actions? If you are in the UK please lobby your local MP to bring attention to this so the UK can intervene via sanctions & int'l pressure. #rohingya #poetry #writersofinstagram #poetrycommunity #instapassport

I'm sorry you find me overbearingly colourful Too vibrant that I shy away from the simple For me, being somber is woeful Yes it isn't elegant Yes it lacks poise But I'm sorry This animation courses through my every vein Your unfounded contempt for it only causes temporary pain •• •• Ultimately it's the nature of my soul Like the colour of my complexion You may find it ugly But a rare few may see the beauty •• •• It's not intended to hurt or offend So as you recoil, this reaction is your own reflection Yet, here I am, having to defend? For this sought-after demurity is your own warped perfection •• •• High-spiritedness completes my existence For I was made this way by the Creator of all creations Hence, Your derision will always meet my unwavering resistance •• •• No one should rain on your parade 🔪 •• •• #chocolate #candy #potd #qotd #quirky #vsco #eccentric #colourful #moodygrams #reflectiongram #photography #picturesque #iphonegraphy #poetrycommunity #writersofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #qotd

As it evaporates into the hours of darkness. •• •• As it evaporates into the hours of darkness, it inks the realm in a deadly noir As it vanishes into an array of hues, it triggers the orchestra of birds bidding each other farewell As it withdraws to only return again incessantly, it beckons the glow of an infinite number of electric lights As it fades into another part of the world, here it signals the hours of solace, rest and peace Infinite for some Limited for many •• •• As it evaporates into the hours of darkness, it hails the genesis of another day A chance to rise again, be it His will Another attempt to seek the perfect within the imperfect. •• •• This is a sunset captured in Seven Kings Park a couple of summers of ago. •• •• #sunset #sevenkings #potd #qotd #views #vsco #park #walks #moodygrams #reflectiongram #photography #picturesque #iphonegraphy #summers #newday #nature #poetry #poetrycommunity #writersofinstagram #instawrite #quotesaboutlife #naturelove

I'll saturate my seconds with colour Praise to God There is too much beauty in this world. So time to stretch. Not remain hidden. Defeated. •• •• In every essence, there is vibrancy Incandescent light even in darkness Yet this blinded heart could not feel it The moist eyes refused to receive it Caged in despair But now I've decided to repair •• •• It's just perception For I know I can feel every shade of emotion So I choose joy. I'll seek it and own it Convince my heart to believe it Pursuing contentment for each coming imperfect day. •• •• Virginia Gardens are a delight to the eyes. Royal gardens and enriched with royal history, these gardens are perfect for a horse carriage ride!

Perseverance and total submission to His power and mercy always pays off, despite multiple moments of near-success. •• •• This is the interior of The Orangery in Kensington Garden.

Prayers etched over my face I raise my palms, wide open. What shall I ask you for? You already know. You already understand. •• Head high, I asked for the world But when my forehead lowered to the ground What did I not gain? •• Drenched with your heavenly light I recalled my purpose •• I was parched I walked away with the ocean. •• Jummah Mubarak •• On this blessed day, may Allah SWT grant us ease and contentment in our hearts. May He make us among the successful in our endeavours for this world and the hereafter. May His baraqah be in everything we intend to do and achieve.

The glories of nature... What are men compared to rocks and mountains? - Silhouettes and shadows of Atlas Mountains in Morocco • •• Watched Pride & Prejudice today and I couldn't describe this capture in a more articulate and illustrative way. Written by Jane Austen herself 204 years ago but still forever true • •• This is a view of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco from an authentic family-run Berber village restaurant. They had an open veranda surrounded by the mountains. An incredible sight whilst having lunch after a trek. However, the most surreal and humbling moment was hearing the azaan (call to prayer) echo amongst these mountains.

Every inch is an illusion Inked with ideas of the imagination Eccentrically covered in creativity Playful and quirky • •• Wherever I go, I always look up at the ceiling and most of the time I'm not disappointed. Easily distracted by the details and the craftsmanship at such a height. This was taken just after midday though it gives the illusion of it being a nighttime capture. This is also one of the most Instagrammed restaurants of London. . . . . . #travel #travelgram #nature #travelphotography #instagood #photography #instatravel #photooftheday #traveling #love #travelling #trip #wanderlust #travelblogger #picoftheday #vacation #beautiful #instadaily #happy #sun #summer #adventure #instagram #holiday #poetry #writersofinstagram #poetrycommunity #art #sky #traveller

Not an original thought but interesting to muse over... • What is a man to a woman? A man is like a door to a woman What's the purpose of a door? A door either opens and leads the way... Or it remains closed. Forever blocking. • Feminism would say build your own door and shatter the glass ceiling 💪🏽 • This is Littlecote House in Hungerford. A listed building that has features from the Roman invasion to the Tudor era. It is also claimed to be the third most haunted house in Britain. . . . . . #travel #travelgram #nature #travelphotography #instagood #photography #instatravel #photooftheday #traveling #love #travelling #trip #wanderlust #travelblogger #picoftheday #vacation #beautiful #instadaily #happy #sun #summer #adventure #instagram #holiday #poetry #writersofinstagram #poetrycommunity #art #sky #traveller

It's a fleeting but not defeating kind of pain, A whispering reminder, Mutable. Forgettable & replaceable Because when standing tall, invincibility is the only option. • •• Bath Abbey tower from inside the Roman Bath courtyards. It takes 212 steps to reach the top. Standing high and mighty since the 7th century. Invincible indeed. •• Also known as The Abbey Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul. . . . . . #travel #travelgram #nature #travelphotography #instagood #photography #instatravel #photooftheday #traveling #love #travelling #trip #wanderlust #travelblogger #picoftheday #vacation #beautiful #instadaily #happy #sun #summer #adventure #instagram #holiday #poetry #writersofinstagram #poetrycommunity #art #sky #traveller

Vines - entangle themselves & make a home where they're uninvited. Vines - strangle and surrond their uninvited home until it's vision of beautiful intricate designs. Vines - bloom and prosper adding character and ultimately giving their identity to that uninvited home.
