-We Need Saints-

We need saints without cassocks, without veils.
We need saints with jeans and tennis shoes.
We need saints that go to the movies, that listen to music, that hang out with friends.
We need saints who put God in first place, ahead of succeeding in any career.

We need saints who look for time to pray every day and who know how to be in love with purity, chastity, and all good things.
We need saints, Saints of the 21st century with a spirituality appropriate to our new time.
We need saints that have a commitment to helping the poor and to make the needed social change.
We need saints to live in the world, to sanctify the world and to not be afraid of living in the world by their presence in it.

We need saints that drink Coca-Cola, that eat hot dogs, that surf the internet and that listen to their iPods.
We need saints that love the Eucharist, that are not afraid or embarrassed to eat a pizza or drink a beer with their friends.
We need saints who love the movies, dance, sports, theater.
We need saints that are open, sociable, normal, happy companions.
We need saints who are in this world and who know how to enjoy the best in this world without being callous or mundane.
We need saints.

-The Poet’s Note-

A friend of mine challenged me to write a 700 word story.

Theme – 2 bodies. 1 gun.

And voila!

-I Will Follow You- was born.

Do comment & let me know what you guys think.

Please go easy on me!

It’s my first murder mystery.

-Is It Okay?-

Is it okay to fall?

Is it okay to get crushed?

Is it okay if we try our best & yet not succeed?

Is it okay to cry?

It is okay to break down?

Is it okay to hurt when he says he doesn’t cares anymore?

Is it okay to love?

Is it okay to hate?

Is it okay to feel love & hate simultaneously?

Is it okay to smile?

Is it okay to laugh?

Is it okay to feel happy when she says she likes you the most?

Is it okay to break free?

From the mould.

Is it okay to dream big because the sky ain’t high enough?

Is it okay to forget the bad days?

Is it okay to treasure the good ones?

Is it okay to live for a purpose & live each day like it is your last?

Is it okay to wish?

Is it okay to hope?

I guess it’s okay to believe & keep the faith going strong…

-Love & Sorrow-

One of the reasons why we crave love, and seek it so desperately, is that love is the only cure for loneliness, and shame, and sorrow. But some feelings sink so deep into the heart that only loneliness can help you find them again. Some truths about yourself are so painful that only shame can help you live with them. And some things are just so sad that only your soul can do the crying for you ……… Sometimes we love with nothing more than hope. Sometimes we cry with everything except tears. In the end that’s all there is: love and its duty, sorrow and its truth. In the end that’s all we have – to hold on tight until the dawn.
