if i’ll tell my story to myself
to entertain my state of mind
i won’t fill my space with self-pity
from feeling withdrawn and partly empty
if pretense would make me look
an upright person getting off the hook
stinking stories from the wicked backdoor
won’t break my heart when roars are washed ashore
i will trust my own values and beliefs
neglecting phony news thriving beyond limits
embracing pure thoughts without fear
they will be filled with honest hopeful cheers

Phantasm

_______________


sometimes i walk
without my shadow following
with closed eyes
my spirit is on call wandering
in the black of time
it glides over the sea
not mindful of its mercurial height
until the zigzagging drop
became the close-mouthed dawn

Tomorrow

as i think of my past
my thoughts will drag me
to a time called
when
learn, did i
was there any
to the voices
i listened
mere enjoyment
beyond forgetting
will my tomorrow show up
before me

as days and nights
interweave
has tomorrow
bypassed me
where
does my future hide


is it now…or it will never be


a never ending puzzle
if
tomorrow will be
pleasantly fine or lousy
or the end…

As You Grow, Child

_______________


a life seemed to float like the clouds above
with God’s grace you were a creation of love
in thy mother’s womb, asleep in the garden of Eden
you were the child lovingly made in Heaven


despite the pains that have gone through
the joys you gave were comfort though so few
you were the spring in the heat of summers
carrying you was a pride on the bold shoulders


they have crossed the deep turbulent ocean
waited for you despite the great distance

if in your life the plight will drag on
faith will inspire you to catch the early dawn


be brave, don’t be the moment’s snowflake
heartaches are there to put your future at stake
don’t let yourself be thrown overboard
prayers are your shining armor and your sword


go, find yourself while you’re young
experience reality and speak the other tongues
till the soil, learn your own personal skill
remember, the world is like a spinning wheel


your nights are as crucial as your days
judgment should be truthful and simply fair
find and express LOVE to many of mankind
the best memoirs that you’ll leave behind…

Lighting This Candle…

______________


I Was Alone sitting on a chair
held my head up I recited a prayer
and in a minute I remember an affair
saddened heart, I seemed drowning in the air

I remember you in that moment
smiles and laughter and a few arguments
at the brink of crying I kept myself silent
sweet promises were gone, a forbidden sacrament

I felt as if a knife was cutting up my heart
bleeding profusely and slicing it apart
yesterday’s hurt has triggered me to restart
a new leaf, a new story, a change of heart

I Am Alone, please lend me Your helping hand
I’m in a storm, give me strength to withstand
lighting this candle makes this cramped space wide
and escape from midnight where I nervously hide

________________


when bubbles cry in the open sea
drifting day and night
wandering
new places became home
but didn’t find its destined mecca

memories float in our past
finding a place to live in our present
but time sometimes doesn’t agree
when to be noted and be obvious
and be painted in black and white

Waiting…(2)

if i have known you at the very start
when time was not meant for us
when our fates were far apart
the hunt for one was never a rush

yearning to be touched and seen
unknown and hidden from your smiles and grin
should the chances be at the bottom of my skin
waiting for the moment when to begin

and now the prophesied odds are here
waiting to be moved by you
changing patterns here and there
different colors shades and hues

maybe this is the right moment
to open this heart ajar for you
your destined lover inside you’ll see
the one you’ll pick among the few…

Struggles

______________

i know not where to start
to launch a dream in space
should i take my heart with me
to frame a name worthy of a trace

i have reached a distance so high
sailed the stormy seas and rode the tides
i never left my soul floating in the sky
waited for mornings to escape the nights

to dream the vision of my choice
was to open my eyes and just stayed focused
in the world of a thousand painful struggles
i have chosen my battles and been victorious

War

______________


i hear the danger
i see the flames
black clouds from the grounds
writing names to blame

machines roared
buildings destroyed
a place in distress
voices in paranoid

if i am dreaming
please wake me up
let me see my own shadow
taking care of myself

i heeded my screams
my shouts of fear
the hope of survival
was drowning in tears

a war borne in despair
fearful of people near by
a man sitting on his chair
alone, lonely, living in lies

A Stranger for a while

________________


this is not the right time
to ask me how i feel
yesterday wasn’t the moment
to ask me if it was real

moment to moment i gather
whispers i could not hear
to myself i’m still a stranger
turning laughter into tears

maybe this is me
a stranger for a while
but i’ll fill this empty heart
with lots of joy and smiles

maybe this is you
not a stranger but a friend
so look inside my heart
together we’ll find meaning at the bend
