The Recruiter

Published by Maryam H. Viqar on

the ugly writers

A conscious victim

Of unknown anxieties,

Invoking in her

demonic mischief

Which had slept

Like a monster

For many centuries

She began to whisper

About dreams turning dark

And uncanny happenings

Until one day

When someone said, “hark,

There she goes

recruiting

for the Devil.

Maryam H. Viqar

A seeker, dreamer, scribbler, reader, writing poetry about grief, loss, rain, autumn, nocturnal silence, hope and sometimes love...and yes 'the sight of the stars makes me dream' too....

Not because you didn’t achieved your dream, you’re already a failure. It’s never late to achieve a dream.

Don’t let your past mistakes dictate your identity. Don’t listen to those voices. Listen only to one voice that says, “you’re still worth it.”
You are beautiful. You are amazing.

Our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future, but from wanting to control it.

“Dreams don’t come true they are true.”
Life is a series of ups and downs, what you feel today may change again tomorrow. Just don’t give up and always believe in yourself that you can do it. If you don’t believe in yourself, who else will?

There would be really dark days sometimes, those times would be your lowest point and somehow you would be unsure of your dreams. But you have to be strongger than your anxieties and wiser than the threats.

Life will not always be happy. There will always be bad days, but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad life. Just a bad day, not a bad life.

Your mistakes don’t define you. Don’t treat them as if they make you less of a person. In fact, it makes you more human. Learn from these unpleasant experiences and accept them whole heartedly. They are not the end of you, instead these are beautiful beginnings for you.

Life are full of struggles and that means of keeping going with what life has to offer. What we have today does not represent our future. Take note that we use to control things but dont let other things control us.

For there isn’t light if there isn’t darkness. There is no such thing as good if there isn’t evil. Everything is a balance between two things and we should be willing to accept all of these because thus can help us understand why there is failure and why there is SUCCESS after failure.

I just want to share my interpretation of what I’ve read yesterday, if you’re whishes/dreams doesn’t come true, maybe, it’s not the best for you. Maybe, God is planning something better and bigger than what your plans are. Keep on waiting on God’s perfect timing. Keep on believing. Someday, you’ll see yourself in a place bigger and better than your dreams.

You should not let your mistakes limit you and what you are capable of doing. Your worth as a person will always be beyond the mistakes you commit.

Time will come that one day you can feel the weight of the world on your shoulder. Like when anxiety kicks in, things are really difficult to understand. Hence, let us try to make this as our reason to move forward and be as strong as you can because at the end of the day, it is us who can help rise ourselves from difficulty.

Do not let your bad days to stop you from dreaming. Mistakes will not make us feel weak but it will make us stronger than before. I know you can do it and fight it with God. Always remember that you are not the only one but you have a big God that will love you unconditionally.

Your past and your mistakes doesn’t make you less of a person. I think each individual has their own bad side, and that’s what make them unique from each other. I’m not here to romanticize wrong doings but its true that we all have our negative version of ourselves and there is nothing wrong with that as long as the end of each day, we still choose to be the better version of ourselves.

Life is like a battle between darkness and light,living with faith can lead you to a better path,loving with no regrets can make you feel how strong you are and leave a legacy for unwavering fight you’ve won together with the memories you’ve shared to others.

Life is about things that would challenge you and yourself, testing your firmness, challenging your faith. Dont let the darkness dominate you, for your light is stronger than that, and God is willing to provide you light. Believe in yourself and walk your life with God’s undying light.

Everything has a dark side sometimes we just have yo look for the good benefits of that side. Your dark side doesn’t define who you really are.

Toni G. said that God, sometimes, destroying our plans when He sees that these may destroy us.
If your plans failed, don’t let negativity consume you. Remember that there’s another one coming in your way, much better and much bigger. We can’t handle some circumstances in our life, but we can change our way of thinking and hope for the better.

We spend so much time being afraid of failure, afraid of rejection. But regret is the thing we should fear most. Failure is an answer. Rejection is an answer. Regret is an eternal question you will never have the answer to.

When you have a dream that you can’t let go of, trust your instincts and pursue it. But remember: Real dreams take work, They take patience, and sometimes they require you to dig down very deep. Be sure you’re willing to do that.

We’re always afraid of being failure, and not able to reach our dreams or goals because of bad things and situations around us. But, the thing is, we should be strong enough to face this failures and challenges in life, and don’t let the bad things affect our lives.
