Seven Wonders


I have a thing with thoughts and word count. They’re challenging—forces you to rack your brain to create an idea that may be short with words but deep in meaning. Aside from the distinct ways on how we interpret things, it also gives the readers freedom to think beyond what’s given, to personalize what’s written in such a way that it touches the very core of their feelings, their emotions.

Today, I have listed down seven thoughts with just seven words each. Hence, the Seven Wonders: Khalil Gibran once said that people will never understand one another unless language is reduced to seven words. What would your seven words be?

Now don’t expect too much. They are not on the inspiring side as what I’ve perceived it’s supposed to be from the prompt and this post is even categorized as Bitter, so.

  • The silence is never comforting. It’s scary.
  • You immortalized my sorrow without permission.
  • Love wrapped in indifference. The most problematic.
  • Ask only if you will listen wholeheartedly.
  • The lies I rehearse are the sweetest.
  • She didn’t look back. He understood why.
  • Love still makes the world go round.

  1. The silence can be comforting. Embrace it.

    I enjoyed your post, and appreciate the reference to Khalil Gibran. My favorite philosopher to pull quotes from.

    1. I hear that a lot but it still doesn’t stop me to think and reflect about my life even just for a few minutes every time after I hear it. Thanks for sharing!


  2. Wow, i love this. Great stuff… Thank you. Each of your seven are powerful.

    Some of mine might be:

    # Love God, Love people. Nothing else matters.

    # The currency of heaven, it is people.

    # The success of communication begins with listening

    # Forgive, or the unforgiveness will eat you.

    # To serve others is its own reward

    Really enjoy your words
