There comes a time in a person’s life when it has to
STOP
The grand moment
Of shame
Thinking…
This isn’t going to end right?
Be DESPERATE!
Be DESPERATE!
Where?
Find it
Where
Do you see it?
STOP
Something drastic
Or live life in plastic
Unchanged
Forever
NO!
Because it isn’t getting better
Just the same
Or worse
I can’t shed this weight!
NO!
I need to shed this weight!
Where is the restraining order
From yourself
Against yourself?
No way out
Then die in the pit
Find a way out
Be desperate
And be quick
STOP…

In light of this recent article, Is Kingston (ON, Canada) racist? I will share a personal experience of trying to get my book “into” the Kingston Public Library.

Kingston Ontario Canada is like a “sacred” city for me because this is my roots in this country. A place where my father first came as a student to do his Masters in 1965 from #Pakistan.

Life is your teacher
Think
It was always about Process
As the train leaves
On it is something you own
The difference is a flash of a second
Why do you feel restricted?
Did you get back what was yours?
It could be gone forever
Think
It was always about Process…
