me and myself doing my own
separate from all the others, unassisted,
a stag, unescorted individual, an introvert

i know how independent i could be
doing my own thing whenever i want
’cause i know myself best than anyone else

alone by myself in a crowd of thinkers
searching and exploring just myself
will only seat me in the company of my shadow

getting lost in a gang of thousands
still i always get back home to the BEING i love
ALONE by myself, my own leader to my personal goals…

in our lives, destiny is referred to as fate
a prediction of what to happen when and where
other people call it luck or just a chance
finding someone to be their love romance


years have silently come and gone unseen
finding a woman to be the only queen
may this Christmas be not a lonely season
to share some blessings that’s our tradition


exchanging gifts from family and friends
this time is the best season to make amends
greetings of merry Christmas can do the trick
pair it with your widest smile as you speak


“MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR “

The age-old tree

_______________

dry, hard and leafless bald
parched by the scorching daily sun
dehydrated and exhausted through the years
has given up the golden crown
that once was its shining glory

its greens have withstood the power of storms
have fought the torridity of summers
passed the canicular days and defended
the caravans of the deadly heat waves
all have fallen to the ground crisped by age

lived and overwhelmed by a tumultuous era
its past has not been wasted and lost
legions of lives took shelter under its shade
birds have perched on its branches for a hush
small worms and beetles have hungered its touch

its lifeless pile of remains stood bare
keeping in mind its importance i declare
sheltered lives as wood for homes from its carcass
fruits on branches souls it sustained, countless
life’s edge has come being a steadfast witness

as history unfolded
the age-old tree’s existence
will surely be remembered…

Life’s Story

you told me a story
i did not understand
you said it was the glory
of someone who took a stand


longing for a dream where hope resides
finding victory where failure divides
luck sometimes become a reason for such
as we struggle to seek some options without rush


survival and death, a battle we call life
death isn’t something that we can hide
to survive is a strong man’s choice
life is God-given, a mortal sin to destroy…

My Own Kind of Paradise

________________

my own kind of paradise
tranquil serene and peaceful
i have freedom from disturbance
in a world where there’s no war
friendship and harmony thrive
violence and hostilities on AWOL
hateful and bitter words unspoken
only sweet and loving conversations
clean humor and lawful proper tidings
greetings of good wishes and inspiring compliments

live in a paradise like mine
experience a joyful life
exist with a lively body and mind
finding time to talk with your god
make peace with what you believe in
and be your own kind of paradise…

sleep now my love
leave your worries behind
free your mind of doubts
for tomorrow is a new day
at times graces don’t come in droves
in any form opportunity comes

just in case chances won’t show up
and remain elusive for you to catch
don’t fall into tears and be hopeless
you can tie up the wind and lash the storm
have a good sleep tonight
and i’ll deliver your dream …

left without a downpour of rain
flew away, far enough my eyes could stare
chased the wind’s course, here and there
like a feather drifted and floated everywhere


flew low on November sky
away just a little nearby
gray as ash wider than a mile
I ran, the hill became an isle


the bright sky, I love the sight
let my hopes and wishes be magnified
into the heavens I wrapped-up this plea
be kinder to us, let nature be…
