Rhythm Of Words


Rhythm Of Words

by Davina Skymmar on Monday, February 27, 2012 at 12:09am ·
" Poetry should... should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance - John Keats 31 October 1795 – 23 February 1821 "

A few months ago, I got to know her. A brave young lady, who always smile. She has a dream. A dream of sharing her experience with teenagers like her. 

She wants to share of her journey with Big C.. through words..

Words that have been  carved out beautifully... turning everything into pieces of  poems

It does not take me long to know that her dream is to be a  poet/writer...

Seeing the determination that she has, resulted this project; "Rhythm Of Words" . She composed the words beautifully into poems, created moments of love, sincerity and hope...

She is Nia Rissa , 17 year old, currently batling with Big C

This project is a not by any NGO.. it is just by a few of us who believes in DREAM :) . InshaAllah, we are planning to have the launch on 17 Mar 2012.

May Allah SWT Bless you all

Take care
Davina

A few of us are trying to fulfill this bright young lady's dream of being a published poet. We are looking for sponsors to finance the project. What we had in mind are gift books that will appeal to both youngsters and adults. You can be a part of this by sponsoring or pledging to purchase a certain a number of books. We are trying to lower the cost of the book by printing more volume, if we manage to get enough pledge, the books will be sold at a special price of RM10.

Please help us make Nia Rissa's dream come true, pledge 1, 5 or 10, the more the better. Not only you'll be fulfilling her dream, you'll get beautiful books of poetry the would make wonderful gifts.

You can make a difference in life, why not start here.

Please share this. This project is by the Wishing Well Programme that fulfills dreams of little warriors battling the big C.

Inquires/pledges can be made to Davina Skymmar.

a walk in the park




I woke up after a dream
of a walk in the tiny park
thin trees towering high
reaching the memory of sky

Lucky to be reminded
of the such innocence
naivety and shyness
but I lament of the could have beens

It was a part of life
that never could have happened
but if only for a moment
a slip in the universe
a dream within a dream

Lucky me
for I can dream

never vanilla



lil' girl
i wish 
you'd pick 
your self up
you are
meant for
great things
and you
know it too

life is not
just vanilla
strawberry
or chocolate
go ahead
create flavors
of your own
we know
it will be
scrumptious

i see
shades 
of me
in you
lil' girl
i know
how hard
it gets
but aren't
we the
strong ones
the one
that's meant 
to change 
the world

a diversion in my path of life.



About six months ago I resolved to make some changes in my life. I wasn't too crazy with where I was with all the things around me. Many things need to change. At that point I decided that the first change should be something not involving others directly. Something that I could be in total control of. Something about me and myself. Hence began my journey of shedding all this excess, both physical and emotional.

As the physical transformation takes place, so does the my emotional state. I am discovering things about me that I never knew exist. This new strength, willpower and determination. And the creative part of me is also making a comeback. The eloquence juice is flowing well.

In the past six months, I've shed about 35% of my body weight, help edit & publish a book of poetry, re-evaluate a thing or two in my life, learn of a few of my hidden talents and best of all, I started living my life to the fullest.

My journey on this new path has begun. There's so much ahead, and I won't look back. I will brave this chance and no more regret. I will make the best of everything.

p/s : funny how I meant to write about something else but ended up writing this instead. So do you still want me to write about how I did it?
