Every man thinks himself to be humble until a genuinely humbling experience humbles him. Hard times are sometimes blessings in disguise. Be a force of nature; take on the chaos. Also, there will be bad times, and those bad times will come to pass as all things in life do. You’ve got to be rejected by the world firstly. But to own yourself above all other things is the most magnificent trophy you can ever attain. Some storms last longer than other storms, but at the end of every storm, there is light. Being positive in the hard times of life will help you to overcome it sooner and effectively than being negative about it. It’s crazy how at times the darkest moments are the lovely ones. We need understanding to start seeing challenges and tough times as clay; for it helps us in sound character moulding. Be with someone that will stick with you through the arguments and tough times because those are the times when you’ll need them the most. If we continue to have faith in God in our dark times and problems, God will guide us to the path out of the issues. Hope is essential for us because it can make our present moment less difficult to handle and bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better than our present, then we can endure the hardships of today. Submit yourself to the difficulty to enjoy hustle free life, physically, mentally, and socially. Hope is essential for us because it can make our present moment less difficult to handle and bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better than our present, then we can endure the hardships of today. Nothing good comes cheaply, so we shouldn’t be surprised when we meet the hard while going for the best. Hard times are not quit times.

Flag of the Southern Cross – Henry Lawson #Kindness


Sons of Australia, be loyal and true to her –
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!
Sing a loud song to be joyous and new to her –
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!
Stain’d with the blood of the diggers who died by it,
Fling out the flag to the front, and abide by it –
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!

See how the toadies of Austral throw dust o’er her –
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!
We who are holding her honour in trust for her –
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!
See how the yellow-men next to her lust for her,
Sooner or later to battle we must for her –
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross.

Beg not of England the right to preserve ourselves,
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross,
We are the servants best able to serve ourselves,
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross.
What are our hearts for, and what are our hands for?
What are we nourished in these southern lands for?
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross.

Shall we in fear of the Dragon or Bruin now
Keep back the flag of the Southern Cross?
Better to die on a field of red ruin now,
Under the flag of the Southern Cross.
Let us stand out like the gallant Eureka men –
Give not our country the sorrow to seek her men –
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!

See how the loyal are storing up shame for us
Under the light of the Southern Cross.
Never! Oh! never be coward a name for us –
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!
England’s red flag will bring hatred and worse to it,
Murder and rapine hath brought a black curse to it;
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!

Have we not breasts for the bullets of thunderers?
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!
Have we not steel for the bosoms of plunderers?
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!
Prove ourselves worthy the land we inherit now,
Feed till it blazes the National spirit now!
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!

Let us be bold, be it daylight or night for us –
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!
Let us be firm – with our God and our right for us,
Under the flag of the Southern Cross!
Austral is fair, and the idlers in strife for her
Plunder her, sneer at her, suck the young life from her!
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!

Fling out the flag to the front, and abide by it –
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!
Stand by the blood of the diggers who died by it –
Fling out the flag of the Southern Cross!
Fling out the flag to the front, and be brave for it.
Liberty! Light! or a battle-field grave for it!
Bonny bright flag of the Southern Cross!

Unraveling #HouseOfHeart ❤️


When I miss you

I become so small my body

could fit into the heart of a

sea bird begging salt with

its pulpy tongue.  The scent of

sandalwood remains in a discarded

shirt tossed over a bed post where

I return and return.

The clouds unravel and tears rain

down in shades of eventide.

Keep me close in your heart like

the beating of a rhythmic railway

traveling snow covered alps

or the black tar of far off foothills.
