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…

you want something to happen to be true
anticipating a cherished desire
confidently expecting it

circumstances or events in life
sometimes don’t go as you want them to be
what, if it turns the other way
would you still hope for what you’re expecting?
or just let life find its own course

and let it be

i am here
carried by my thoughts
reacting to a dream

i am there
dragged by my hope
talking back to an aim

here, there and everywhere
i have to start somewhere
now, later or never

up, i’ll find some stairs to the heavens,
or build a highway to the stars
can’t make it

if there’s no beginning…

Courage…

I tried searching
searching for something
something I don't have

I tried looking 
looking for a thing
something i don't own

I tried claiming
claiming something not mine
words were said but not done

having something to own
but i didn't know i have it
surely,i don't know it

hard times were crossing my path
until my knees were wounded and torn
embracing my will to go on

my face was slapped a hundred times
my back was whipped a hundred more
but i didn't think of death

with cries of agony
i fought back with Hope 
that it will end soon

but my life was hanging
with a tiny thread of chance
little did i know that i still have Strength

i hold on to that strength unknown to me
persevered and endured the pains of a fight

i crossed the inmost depths of ravines
and ignored the ravages of storms
dived the deepest of the ocean floors
survived the horrors of wars 

now i know what i've been searching for
now i know what i'm looking for
now i have the courage of claiming it
it's the COURAGE that was hidden within me
