I cry some tears sometimes…

________________

i see the greens outside my windows
the sleepy air has driven me to dream
i rest my thoughts only the time knows
the distance unknown how far i’ll swim
painful heart, i cry some tears sometimes
a few stories, i keep in my mind
lives differ like words at ends that rhyme
portrayal of dreams can’t be unwind
breath right, walk on through each cloudy night
brave the rains, tread the slippery trail
stories of grief no need to rewrite
fantasy from real, dreams do divide

Gold Dust

______________


the view was clear
no debris, no litter, no trash
not a speck of dust


no deceit, no betrayal
just the true picture
the real score


by the naked eye
the normal beats of heart
unsuspicious mind


every inch of the mask
wrapping a clear image
losing its shine to dirt


full moon in the heavens
radiant with honest heart and clear conscience
bringing truth and light


if chances has slipped some deceptive lies
distorting the facet of truth
gold dusts must have been the price

_____________


the flowers in the garden
i touched and admired
every blossom smelled like heaven
a beauty to desire

i sniffed all the blooms
to be praised or put to shame
no other but one
has stood out to fame

so i tried to remember
who wore the scent i liked best
it has come to my mind
father’s perfume bested the rest

Intimate acquaintance

_____________


roasting my mind
on a bed of assumption
rising from the sea of humanity
an expedition for an intimate
acquaintance with myself

i constantly hear the sounds
bringing the promises of truth
the waves that keep coming back
are left on the distant shore

conversations of the loose-lipped crowd
the walls have ears and stories can sprout
the things that dangled all around
peddlers of lies, empty thoughts abound

for a moment i gazed upon the sky
and saw these birds flapping their wings
i had hoped they will never forget
at times, birds of prey, always a sterling pet

This is N Seoul Tower in South Korea. It is also known as the Namsan Tower or Seoul Tower which holds transmission antennas of KBS, MBC, SBS TV, FM, PBC, TBS, CBS, and BBS FM.[8] It is South Korea’s first general radio wave tower.  It had its name changed to N Seoul Tower in 2005, with the “N” standing for ‘new’, ‘Namsan’, and ‘nature.’  There are four observation decks (the 4th observation deck, which is the revolving restaurant, rotates at a rate of one revolution every 48 minutes), as well as gift shops and two restaurants. Most of the city of Seoul can be seen from the top.

________________


sweat dripping on the thirsty ground
is water that came from humans
physical activity and temperatures around
yielded the physical toughness of man


everyone’s life has its ups and downs
managed our responses reacted to rebound
but each time we face our fears, worries and doubts
we find ourselves giving up then turn around


our ability to execute an action
at a level that’s always paired with caution
the unwavering will to ultimately win
is mental toughness, a skill, a discipline

(Memories) When he’s weak to fight…

_________________


the first thing he did
was to make the sign of the cross
then his heart beat so heavy
he didn’t understand why
words did rattle as he cried

cherished moments when he was small
when days became nights as he recalled
he longed for love but no one would show
no one to leave his goodbyes and greet his hellos
God tapped his back and he tailed the shadow



with the looks of a probing child, He said
“Come with me, I’ll feed you with the Holy bread.
Have faith in me, I’ll give you the best”
“Thanks, my Lord, I have found You, God bless”



look at him now, my dear God
inside this church he has found the Love
goodbyes were left at the doorstep of hunger
hellos were met beyond familiar danger

thank God for the treasured memories
the golden moments keeping him upright
as he fought his battles, winning victories
You gave him strength when he’s weak to fight

Zero.

It’s been an hour
sitting on a chair
doing nothing.
I have cheered myself up
by making funny faces
in front of the mirror
but nothing has changed.

I remained dumb
and looking stupid
beside an electric fan
which looked more stupid than me
’cause it won’t work
even when my fingers
have hardly pressed its knob.

Though how much force
I pressed my pen on my paper
nothing has entered my mind
to start a sentence.
Zero.

So I made some deliberation
trying to exploit the limits
how far it can go
back to another time
of my childhood days.
But it went kaput.
