Agatha

She was trapped, and afraid to escape,
It seemed like everyone around her felt
stuck, confined, content with dirt.
Dampened spirits no one cared to fight anymore.
She wasn't comfortable so she made her way of escape.

Agatha ran the race of her life when she finally broke free
She was free at last,
Oh so good! fresh air.

Agatha was free at last, and she
Found her way to the highway,
The road, she started the journey. But,
every person she trusted for help had seen her on the news

She's been declared wanted by her captor
and there's a ransom
It became hard to trust anyone,
she lost faith, I think she felt she was free but alone
Bounty hunters all around.

Agathas freedom has been compromised.
All She wanted was to be out of prison
She wasn't ready for this, didn't bargain for this.
So sadly and slowly Agatha stopped fighting
She surrendered to her hunter
And they put her back in prison.

Note:
It's not important what her crime is
This wasn't a lawful prison.
Agatha failed to plan well, she wasn't prepared, that's why she failed.

Thought :
I think Agatha shouldn't get comfortable with failure,
I hope she tries again,
and this time with a good plan.

What's the truth?

The destroyer thrives on fear.
And it's the fears we've refused to admit
I'm not only preaching to you, I'm preaching to me.

We're afraid of something
We're afraid to  dig deep
We don't even acknowledge the destroyer as the enemy
He has become 'a friend'
We Believe in a system, but a system filled with flaws
There's no peace when we believe lies.                              Selah.
1+1 equals 2, but in these system that doesn't sum up

Here, What we substitute for joy is mere 'fun'
last just for a moment.
(See, joy is soul deep, can't be fabricated)
Insatiable want, a need, we desire more...
We just are to scared to admit it, but we know it

There's got to be more to life.
Something is wrong with the system.
Ehmmmmm, so why are we so afraid of  the TRUTH?

From the New York Times.


“When we open a market, everyone asks, ‘How many stores will you open?’ ” he said. “Honestly, I didn’t know. It depends on the customer and how big the demand is. We must have the dialogue with the customers and learn from them. It’s not us saying you must have this. It’s you saying it.”


In New York, they did one page saying they were opening — in The New York Times,” Echevarría said. “But it’s not a campaign; it’s an announcement; it’s information. The company does not talk about itself. The idea was that the client was to talk about the company. It was not to say how good it could be. The customer would say that if it was deserved.”


while Spain has been suffering through real estate and debt crises (following the global financial crisis), Inditex has prospered. Echevarría said that is because the customer is always determining production — not the other way around. Every piece of clothing the company makes has, in a way, been requested. A business model that is so closely attuned to the customer does not share the cycle of a financial crisis.


“Actually, the customer is more or less the same in New York and Istanbul,” she said. “There are differences, like Brazilian girls like more brilliant colors, whereas in Paris they use more black. But in general when you find a fashion trend, it’s global.”


Inditex takes the fashion pulse of the world. A trend can last a half a year, but some are finished in a month.

Christian Louboutin took Inditex to court for selling the company’s signature red-soled shoes but lost, mainly because Inditex takes care to change its designs just enough to evade copyright laws.
Golsorkhi says. “I was of the same mind myself, but I have grown out of that because I realize that the fashion companies also copy each other. In the end, no one’s original.”


They have done process innovation very well,” says Nelson Fraiman, a professor at Columbia Business School who has studied the Inditex model. “Product innovation? No. But tell me one Chinese company that has done product innovation very well. They are brilliant at process. I think you should give a cheer for process innovation.”


He was talking about Zara (the store).
