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

Bamboo bridge

__________________________

a bridge stretched and where to end

i know not where the point to bend

ignored the weights the hold to carry

enough heavy loads to be called a mighty

.

an ace done in sturdy bamboo finished

art form though rough spots were not wished

life guaranteed and survived to last

the anger of the sun, rain and dust

.

suffered the injury the hurt it endured

being stepped upon the safety was ensured

more ways than one the manner you’ve crossed

created a shake boldness in you withdrawn

.

unmindful as you walked when you saw the bend

sad turn of events at times had to end

lives were down bitter times should not extend

like a bamboo bridge strong to be a friend
