The colour of peace……

Dare I ask for peace in this turbulent world of silent wars
The colour of war is dark and dissolute
Corrupt, abounded with fear
Yet still I hope for a glint of light

Peace what is its colour
In this sea of red and rage…
We are abundant with greed
Power people embrace in their foolhardiness

Could it be translucent or sublime
Maybe more a cool blue breeze
Or perhaps full meadow green and yellow
Yes I will dare ask for peace….

Let’s cast a dream of hope
Crimson washed to sea
Darkness erased by an energy of illuminate
Onwards we will wander seeking for our own true colour…..

Wounds of time!

Skin Deep ~ Mandy Moran

image

Peering through the Winter glass,
Blinking in utter disbelief,
Realisation of what the focus sees,
Pointed, high heeled leather
Female shiny adornments!!

Agony ripping through the soul,
Pain is undescribable…..
Aching heart of crumbling dreams,
Anger, fury, covering the screaming hurt,
Dizzy with sickness of fear…

Screaming from memories of love,
Apart from reality so floating in pure rage,
Blinded by a women’s wrath,
How could this be,
Infidelities destruction lies in ruins!

Wounds laid raw for the world to see,
Passerby’s show of drama,
Taking revenge would unburden the heart,
Ease the throbbing misery,
Disperse the torment of injury.

A fracas of battling hearts,
The quarrel however soon dissolved,
For where can this but lead,
So bitterness could take hold,
For hurt once turns to bleed.

This wound will heal on forgiveness,
Time is of the essence,
Elements warm and mend the anguish,
Chains thaw from the heart,
This…

Possibilities……

Skin Deep ~ Mandy Moran

I dwell on Possibilities of time,
If time were only eternal,
Our time however is limited and precious,
Preserve, cherish, endear in your memory.

New possibilities erase the old,
Ashes made from thoughts lost,
Let’s now concentrate on the promise,
For with this new found energy things will grow….

Hope has always simmered,
For now it has manifested,
Its colour is turquoise fresh and clean,
Blowing in the wind of the hands of times…

Like a petal in a rose bud,
Unfolding on times count
No sooner than its ready to climax,
To open to its prize of scent…

Is anger really fear?

Skin Deep ~ Mandy Moran

We have all experienced anger at some time in our lives wouldn’t you agree?
How we manage it though determines its effects both to ourselves and those around us.

Let’s think about what anger really is!

Its a reaction to flight or fight produced or triggered from fear,a feeling that’s preminary to protect us, that fear can come in different forms though!

1. Physical.
2. Imaginary.

An example of different forms of fear!

Physical.
1.You are happily driving down the road with your children in the back in your car off for a day out, when suddenly a car overtakes on a bend and narrowly misses causing a serious accident!
You are enraged, angry and feel belligerent!
The anger you are experiencing is a true fear of injury to yourself and your offspring.

Imaginary.
2. You are with your new girlfriend or boyfriend at a busy party having a…

One small change at a time….

Just as this beautiful butterfly was once a caterpillar, so can we also manifest and change our life’s!

We all want change really if we’re totally honest, unless you want to stand still because change means moving forward, it means improving and checking who we are, the hard part is achieving the change and making it a habit, a lifestyle…..

Whether it be a habit of food, exercise, or thought of mind I find the best way is to just make one small change at a time and practice that for a few weeks so that it becomes habit forming before introducing another change and so hence then not getting too over whelmed or worst still failing with the change, giving up!!

Those New Year traditions…..

Happy new year 2017

Skin Deep ~ Mandy Moran

Those feelings we all had last night, the dramatic build up,the suspense.
Whatever or however you celebrated the coming in of the new year, we will all have different memories stored from the year gone before us.
Some wonderful, some dreadfully painful or sad……
Either way we can not hold back time, on we go!!

image

I personally have fantastic fond memories of many a New Years Eve celebrating with my family when I was young at the working men’s club so to speak.
Back in the day of pork scratchings, snowballs and babycham……
The beer mats with my lemonade and salt and vinegar crisps spring to mind.

The long dresses that all the women wore, men with their flares, large knotted ties and collars, not forgetting the hair and moustaches……
“Those were the days…..”

Old traditions

We had a tradition in our household of putting money outside on New Years…
