Day 3: Quote Challenge

Hey everyone! It’s Mei! Today is the last day of the three day quote challenge, and so I’m going to end this lovely challenge with a bang! So! I hadn’t previously known this quote, but my good friend mentioned it to me, and I really took a liking to it. To me, it has soooo much truth within it and it’s like a jackpot of inspiration =]


All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king

-J.R.R Tolkien

Day 2: Quote Challenge/Unbreakable Words

Hey Everyone! It’s Mei! Here’s today’s quote…

The raw truth in simplicity. Be yourself already! Simple as that.

SO! A little move towards today’s poem…My inspiration for Unbreakable Words was simply The Book Thief. That movie was full of so many inspiring deep thought provoking words, but a few phrases really stuck out to me.

Write. In my religion we’re taught that every living thing, every leaf, every bird, is only alive because it contains the secret word for life. That’s the only difference between us and a lump of clay. A word. Words are life, Liesel. -Max Vandenburg

And there was also this one.

I’m not lost to you, Liesel. You’ll always be able to find me in your words. That’s where I’ll live on. -Max Vandenburg

To me, those two phrases were soooo deep, and I basically just ran with them, because to me…Words are infinite, and that’s what sets us apart from the things non-living. Enjoy and be blessed!

Unbreakable Words

An ongoing story
Is what it creates
A creator in the making
The ease of mistakes

It forms your breath
Every intake and out
It hears every whisper
And the loudest of shouts

It provides the spark of your smile
And the joy of your eyes
It lays the dirt of the ground
And paints the blue in the skies

It moves with the beat of your heart
And your rhythmic hum
It swims in your mind
Like fire drowned in the sun

It makes up every sonnet
Every song ever played
It gives depths to all poems
And gives life to what’s made

It chances your heart
And brings you to tears
It fills you with peace
And feeds each of your fears

It’s the very root of confusion
It’s the fine lines of hate
It causes you to question
If it’s all up to fate

It provides the love for your soul
To finally find one another
It brushes the blush on your cheeks
And the touch of your lips against the other

It plays the songs of your passion
The tunes of your mind
It sets you apart greatly
It makes you one of a kind

It creates your anger
Your sadness and pain
It cloaks you in pride
Like a lion’s mane

It opens the eyes of the clouded
The lied to, the hated
It can seem like an error…
A phrase misstated

It sews us together
It frees all who are alone
It’s a chamber of life
To the things unknown

It gives life a meaning
And mends all the fractures
It forms you and I
And gives our lives chapters

Each syllable stated
Can cause our story to bend
But it won’t ever break
At least…Till the end
