well-kept in the calmness of the mind
rightful pursuits of plots someone has to do
disliked and shunned the bad left them all behind
affairs and episodes you hated as taboo

morally good and humble our lives should be
strange future still unknown of what’s in store
happiness in this world are ours for free
life’s spices not seen as classic folklore

Sometimes, Empathy

sometimes the thought of nothing creeps secretly
when nobody feels the presence
when nobody takes you
as who you are

many times your shadow entertains
can’t ignore your own being
standing and surviving, you pretend
in defiance of negativities

the mind refuses sculptures of clay
fighting an uphill battle processing a nay
building social connection you’ll not lose
empathy is… walking in each other’s shoes

Mermaid or Snake ?

Dawal Beach resort
Brgy. Uacon, Candelaria, Zambales
Philippines

I find this statue very unusual in its form. I thought this was a mermaid, but looking at how the bend at the stomach makes her more of a snake than a mermaid. Her odd and very strange figure is likely that of a carnivorous reptile. Do you agree with me ?

You can find this incredible “being” inside the premises of Dawal beach resort in Zambales, Philippines.

Life’s a Sea of Risks…

navigating at a certain speed
cruising fast to overtake the sun
peeping as the horizon bleeds
trying to catch up before it’s gone

like a man desiring for her love
he needs some quick response to win her heart
in the twilight of life he needs to rise above
life’s a sea of risks, chances can tear them apart…

The Sketch…

____________________

the course seems to be so strange
stretched far as the eyes could see
lines full of spiny little thorns
tracing life’s untold painful byways

honeyed path, their moments are sweet
unmindful of those pauperized ones they see on the street
desirous hands ignored not one gold they’ve shared

pretty face, unkind heart,
familiar but not a godly
sketch of a human being

Then you yourself begin falling like a tear

I see the unending horizon from afar
I feel the loneliness that’s far beyond
I don’t know the reason alienating the star
Why is it from me, you’re so very far ?

A line that divides the ocean from the sky
As I get closer, it runs away from my eyes
The nearer I get, the farther the horizon
When do I get warm to your distant emotion ?

I can only see the stars at night
The day seems so envious they’re out of sight
When skies are clear, you choose night to appear
Then you yourself begin falling like a tear

There’s no losing chance for a heart that waits
Time will tell when to open the gates
The far horizon and the stars at night
Into my heart they will all be tied…

Memories

______________________


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
