Life is...
Sometimes I wonder: what am I?
I look at the stars and feel very small;
just a tiny consciousness.
But if I were as tall as a planet,
I would still be short in comparison to the universe.
I see a person twice my size
and I feel weak and fragile.
But if I were strong and powerful,
I would still not be invincible.
I see a painting by the hand of a genius,
and I feel inexperienced and ignorant.
But if I were the greatest artist alive,
it would not make me love what I do any more or less.
I see blood, running from the wound of another,
and I feel a chilling fear from deep within.
But if I walked this earth with bravery,
it would not make things less dangerous.
I see a baby, innocent and naive,
and I feel cynical and jaded.
But if I saw through untainted eyes all my life,
it would not make the world a better place.
I see a raindrop, tear of the sky,
and I feel ugly and unsightly.
But if I were as beautiful as rain,
it would not make me crystal clear inside.
There are children with cancer,

We crossed each other yesterday at the train station.
I look at him.
I felt so petrified.
Then I noticed 'Gone' by Lianne La Havas  was playing in that instant.
He hugged me and whispered on my ear 'I am sorry.'
I didn't know a single word he said.
What I feel won't change.
It's too much.
It's heavy.
I am gone.
I can't take it back.
'Good Luck.' I said.
He got upset.
I walked away...
When I sat on the train, I cried and laughed at the same time.
Not because I was sad or confused but how strong I became since I left him.
If physical scars face, perhaps emotional ones can too...
Self-esteem is growing.
Chasing my goals and dreams.
I see the world different around me.
I guess changing circumstances require changing attitudes.

  • Eating: Cheese & Ham Toast
  • Drinking: Orange Juice


jojojoanaa's Profile Picture
Joana Lima
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United Kingdom
I'm Joana, known as Jo, Portuguese and living in London.
Don McCullin once said: ”Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
It’s such an addiction and changes completely the way you see things around you. Although, it helps me to built my confidence and express myself even more.
English is my second language, so excuse my spelling gramma if it's wrong! X'D
Hope you enjoy my gallery! x
