The City of Chimnese
Hello, Welcome to Inspirations of the week 5, today, let’s take a look at a fabulous blogger, an outstanding poet and official My Poetry & Writing, by Chimnese,
She writes poetry with various topics, she also write short fiction, she does Book Review too, in her own words,
“My name is Chimnese Davids; I was born in
. I work as an accounts clerk for a
Property Management company. Writing has always been my passion since I was a
little girl, listening to my grandmother, as she would tell me stories of her
childhood, I would sit and listen intensively. I guess you can say I was a bit
home bound, my books and my grandmother was where you would always find me. My
space for me as long as I can recall was "with her nose in her book"
as my gran replied. Where do I begin: Like the opening line of the song, "
Love Story", where does one begin to tell a story... I first started out
as a fan fiction writer on the Spashley relationship pairing. A year after that
I moved to poetry when I came across the website All poetry. I post most of my
poetry that’s currently on my author blog at Allpoetry.com. In the past year I
have had poetry published on an online magazine, AllthingsGirl. Where they
published my poem, Raising Daughters. In June 2011 I was one of the contributors
towards a poetry anthology Step Into My Shoes with jafansta publications.” Cape Town, South
Everyday Grace from Chimnese
“ Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ”
I agree with HER, and I love her poetry and value her 100% perfect attitude at the same time, Thanks for reading, stay tuned for our week 4 Participants Talent Show Tonight.
One of the poems I enjoyed so far is
So those words just start drifting
Through my mind,
As fresh tears are willing to fall,
I try so hard to push them back,
Telling myself that I have no right,
That I haven't needed to break down
And cry, I can't accept this,
Tears falling, when all I'm thinking
Why not spoke up earlier.
What have I missed out?
Was I so consumed with my own hurt?
That I didn't watch what was going
On around me.
Do you blame me for everything I've been through?
That we've been through.
Our hearts belong together
That's what I know.
I'm sitting up late this morning
While sad love songs are playing
Our songs, our future gone.
I didn't even feel this ache
I'm feeling now months ago,
But here it, I feel regret now.
I'm heart broken.
So this must have felt like
When I broke yours,
And heart wrenching, suffocating pain.
The kind of pain that leaves your head
Spinning, that leads you to do things
A dark red room with your knife
Right through the center of it.
The more I see you happy,
The more the knife twist and turns
That I can't feel anything anymore,
Numb and empty that's how I feel.
You've won the battle.
Walk out the door as you smile
And grab someone else's hand.
Leaving me barely can take a breath
As nothing is left but being fallen.
