Did we just open up our hearts to have them closed?
Coz it feels like mines still open and yours is elsewhere down the road
I don’t blame you; I guess it wasn’t meant to be
Even though it felt like that every time it was just you and me.
I just need some closure to help me move on,
But you have been that rock in me that helped me be strong
But il be ok il be alright
I have been always, knowing God is with me at night
Endless prayers on how to let this feeling go
Why won’t it leave, or do u have a hold on me like so.
Nevertheless I have tried endless times
But you keep coming back to me and it makes everything alright.
You can’t fight with fate Tk no matter how hard you try
But having faith and hope leaves no room to say goodbye
Maybe it was just how you made me feel from the start
Its funny coz I told myself; this guy can never get to your heart
But u did n now its left vulnerable, exposed and bruised
That why I lock it up from others, I’m afraid to be used
Enough of the emo shuff
“You’ve gotta be happy” Tk you always say
“Don’t be stingy with your smile
You’ve gotta stay awesome all day”
Ever had a beautiful sunny day and in the middle of it there is rain?
Its like having ur happiness being the same source of your pain.
I never wanted things to end like this O
And im not begging u to stay or begging u to go
My feelings just had to be let out or else il breakdown
And I know how u don’t like it when I frown.
Instead of being that girl who says it when she’s drunk
I thought I’d write it in lyrically
And hope this makes you feel any different
Mentally or emotionally
I had a hard time writing this not knowing how it would make you feel
But just wanted to know if those feelings u say u have are actually real.
Coz if they are please don’t hurt me
Coz im still waiting and my heart bruises easily.
She’s got your heart I know
But I’d like to have it too someday
I’d never let it fall or drop
Never let it get blown away.
I’l be your cutie
Id be your bestie
Even when you car race
Ur front row cheerleader at ur fastest n slowest pace
I’d keep u smiling even in the darkest days
When the sun ain’t shining or when its lost it’s rays
Id try my best at most
even when you have nothing to do
Coz all I ever want to be, is somebody to you.
Made out of Adam’s image
Beautiful and mighty she stands.
Yet oppressed and beaten through
Gender inequality seen in all the lands.
Man doubts her strength, power and ability
No education, no supremacy and they call that humility?
Titled as the baby maker
For 9months she bares a newborn.
She still cooks, still cleans
Her heart can’t help but feel torn.
Nothing compares to the undermining feeling
She felt in the olden days.
Cast under man’s shadow
She was mute because she knows no other ways.
Each year it’s the same story
But today she stands beautiful and mighty.
She still fights for equality.
The reason for life in this world is she
Praying for peace and justice in this world
For you and me.
Your aunt, your sister, mother, daughter or wife.
Just like the morning sun rises
She is the reason for life!
They say time heals everything
But how I can heal when there’s nothing at all
Just an empty lonely heart
And a girl waiting to fall.
Off a bridge? I think not
But my heart hurts and it was all I got.
Dear God please hear my cry
Heal me and help me fly.
These tears I cry shouldn’t be there
Coz I opened my heart to people who couldn’t even care.
So tell me? How does one learn to love when they aren’t loved back?
I need you Lord
Please put my life on track.
They say everyone can love
And I want to feel that.
I don’t want his sweet nothings
I want to feel peace.
If it means letting this go
Then I will and what we had will care to cease.
But I will wait for u God
I will wait all day.
Even when my heart gets hurt again
I won’t stop to pray.
All I know is that
This feeling inside is the worst
Is it I to blame
Or the one I loved 1st.
But I can’t keep looking at the past
Just hope one day
The future will be bright
And I’ll have someone to trust.
This heart of mine deserves better
This heart of mine is strong
This heart of mine has lost love
This heart of mine can’t go on
This heart of mine is shattered
This heart of mine is true
This heart of mine is will one day stand
Coz I know Lord it was made by you.
You know that moment
When you do what’s wrong but can’t stop
I guess it’s what I’ve always feared in my mind
And it just won’t drop
The kind of wrong that makes you forget who you really are
And that feeling of love inside of you
Is put away in a place so far
Excuse my English,
If im being too imprecise
As a matter of fact, what goes on in my head
Ain’t nothing to do with sugar and spice.
You see we’ve all got skeletons in our closet
But I ain’t here to confess
Poetry is just how I get things out
Kind of like my distress.
Let me tell u a lil story, my lil narration
You’ve probably heard it before
About life and how it isn’t a simple equation
So it starts with the moment she felt her world torn apart
She knew that with time she’d get better
But nothing could mend this broken heart
Feeling empty disheartened and dejected
Not even a kind word from a stranger
Could amount to the way she felt rejected.
Turned towards terrains of temptations
Trying to be tested
Tick tock tick tock
Time went by as she lived her life of sin infested
Cast amongst demons of sloth, greed and lust
Bounded by feelings of sadness, loneliness
Was there anyone she could trust?
‘’I don’t want it anymore
This is too much to handle
She confided in the God she once obeyed
As she prayed in a dark room with a candle
He’s only will to love her gave her second chance to repent
Feeling remorse and regret
I want to be heaven sent
But she went
And did again like a little child she was bent
Into thinking the world was a horrible place and people did not believe in lent.
The God I trust is the only I serve
But with all that I’ve done
Your mercy and grace I don’t deserve
So I’ll sit aside and keep my feelings
Knowing very well there will always be a day
Where I won’t stop sinning
Heavy hearted, lost in emotion
Could this only be the beginning?
Should companies hold their employees responsible for individual activity on social media?
One of the best inventions since the internet just has to be social media. This phenomenon is rapidly growing with numerous people joining a social network site each day. However it does have its disadvantages and needs to be used in the most cautious and careful way possible, especially if you are employed by well-known companies or organizations. The aim of this blog is to discuss whether or not companies have the right to hold their employees liable for what they post on their personal social media sites.
Social media refers to websites such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube that enables people to interact with one another, share videos and images (Levinson, 2013: pg 2). Many businesses and organizations use social media for advertising to create a better brand image and to interact closer with their clients or customers. Although companies allow their employees to use social media, employees need to ensure that they do not post information that could result in terrible implications for their job. It is important to think about what you post before you post it because it can be seen by the public. Paglia (2010) a social network expert advises that one can have two separate accounts for private and public affairs.
On the sixteenth of June 2011, New York Congressman Anthony Weiner was forced to resign after he tweeted a sexual picture of himself to a young college student. This scandal became the talk of the town for many weeks and had serious consequences not only for his public image but for his job and other politicians too (Fiorella, 2011). Therefor it is vitally important to monitor the kind of information you upload, unless of Corse you are a wannabe celebrity who makes a living off posting explicit information and scandalous pictures for publicity. This is why many businesses have certain laws pertaining social media usage for their employees.
According to Paglia(2010) companies such as Fedex, Kodak, Walmart and many others, have social media employee policies. This ensures that employees can safely use their personal social media sites as long as they do not post any information that could jeopardise the company or be used against it in any way. As stated in the Roche social media principles case study, they are aware of the benefits of social media and welcome it. However they also know of the dangers that could arise. Thus they have a Roche code of conduct that suggests one to use sound judgement and common sense when approaching online social media.
In conclusion companies do have the right to hold their employees liable for their personal activities on social media. Employees need to be careful not post information that implicates or conflicts with the company. Since the employees work for the company, it is his/her responsibility to ensure that they abide by their laws or rules.
