Stars are messengers
giving loss a coloured hope;
yet, we live in pain.

Are semi-transparent rainbows
occasionally seen after
the sun shines when the rain’s done
watering the grass
Is body language known to those
who deal with failure.

is a four letter word:
How to light a flame within to
Overcome the challenges, and
Prosper in this field of corn, when it seems that
Ending is right here?
Positivity is the beginning of more.

So as the title of the post suggests, there have been changes made to the blog. Namely, name changes. Previously, this blog (and my username) was xoxosanaz. I have changed them to “yungfiza”. One of the reasons is that this space has finally found itself, and so have I. When I started blogging, I didn’t know if it would be something that I could continue (with school, time and content constraints). Over the years, I’ve found myself becoming attached to this space. Blogging has helped myself in so many ways. So this is why these alterations became inevitable. It was a tough choice as I was attached, and used, to the previous domain. Everything else remains the same. I will still post poetry, quotes, stories (once in an orange moon), and opinion pieces. Hopefully, these differences are encouraging for both of us. Thank you for reading.
Lodges and shops in the village, built
in a European style, shine like pin-pricks
of hope that exists one minute and blurs the next.
Trust in destiny taut during an inhale and loose on the exhale.
Delight in the little things in life burns in a crowd,
and dies in isolation.
Aspirations for a better future flare in prosperity,
and wither in poverty.
Yet the hollowness on the inside persists.
