when no one else deserves a praise
no one to be cheered about
stare at the wall and a figure will come
remembering what has been spent and done

look back and relive the life
recall those happy memories that made you smile
don’t miss those bitter ones that made you cry
lessons were learned from those times gone by

Music I Hear…


by : Bacardi Gold
17/oct/2021


there’s music i hear
don’t know where it’s coming from
my hands are tapping the board
look, what have I done

my lips are murmuring
head moving, up, down, left, and right
feet moves forward, backward, and sideward
but i’m not a dance wizard

lay me in a spell
unchain me from the shackles of doubts
free me from mental pressure
lend me a soft closure


chances share me the joy to sing
and for a moment i feel free
like a tree i hide under its shade
where my anguish, hurts and gripes fade…

morning has risen
inflaming hearts to smile
inspiring faces to grapple with
issues and questions of the day
morning meets worries
obstacles, doubts and puzzles
but unexpectedly they meet,
answers and solutions

lifting someone’s spirit

Road to infinity

time is running out
beating the clock will not be easy
for the day to come
that i will be me

life will seek the path
where thin air will be in abundance
as i walk the road to infinity
where the necropolis
of the known and unknown souls behave
as i pass and watch them laid in silence.

Waiting…

I remember how it was
waiting for you at any instance
it was always like
a discomfort for me
awaiting cure

waiting for you at any place
was like hell of a trouble
waiting to be solved

you took so long to pop up
at the agreed time and place
i was always the first to be there

but when your smile breezed in
i was always in heaven
when you hold my hands
and heard you spoke, “Let’s go now”

I Fall

you look at me in the eyes
then i fall from my seat
then i forgot the lines
the bullet hit the target
i melted right there
and scattered all over
i wanted to roll back
and there you are, the answer

You will always be

______________________


when your voice speaks from nowhere
it echoes in my mind from somewhere
often i hear it so gentle and meek
your soft voice is the tone i always seek

when your heart and mine beat as one
exploding like the sound of a gun
i knew your mind was speaking to me
so i gave myself so easily

but one day my tears were unnoticed
on my pillow i cried the loudest
with my pillow i embraced the tightest

’cause i considered you my best

why did you give me this freedom
i didn’t ask for independence
felt your worth since the welcome
need nothing so far the distance

but you confessed there’s another love
you played it so well thru the years
leaving me here inside of me
you will always be the echo in my ears…

Cherished Moments

she changed shelters
carried all her works and dreams
hauled chances were altered
filling the nights with pseudonyms
busy with a child to care
a mother and an all-around teacher
cherished moments are always drained out
precious hours are spent with a golden aim
