______________


i’m staring at you
with inquisitive eyes
stupefied i must say
it’s been a while
that you’ve been hanging
on that flat solid blind wall

writings on some of the numbered days
marked to be brought to mind
my happy smiles are one of a kind
ungodly images nothing can compare
go raining on my dreadful nightmares

notes for the somber bleak moments
checks for the cheerful lively commitments
you never smile or showed any fear
just hanging on there
a new calendar year after year

________________

my own kind of paradise
tranquil serene and peaceful
i have freedom from disturbance
in a world where there’s no war
friendship and harmony thrive
violence and hostilities on AWOL
hateful and bitter words unspoken
only sweet and loving conversations
clean humor and lawful proper tidings
greetings of good wishes and inspiring compliments

live in a paradise like mine
experience a joyful life
exist with a lively body and mind
finding time to talk with your god
make peace with what you believe in
and be your own kind of paradise…

________________


left without a downpour of rain
flew away, far enough my eyes could stare
chased the wind’s course, here and there
like a feather drifted and floated everywhere


flew low on November sky
away just a little nearby
gray as ash wider than a mile
I ran, the hill became an isle


the bright sky, I love the sight
let my hopes and wishes be magnified
into the heavens I wrapped-up this plea
be kinder to us, let nature be…

Believe in His mercy…

To be lost in the dark
leaving a hundred different marks
got confused if it’s true or not
dried tears on my face, it’s a lot

I know what it means
to be scorned in my dreams
got worried so it seems
it’s so real and so extreme

Crying is not the way to be free
the future waits and it’s not ours to see
prayers can help what we want to be
have faith in Him, believe in His mercy

The day…

i never know the image of the sun at night
behind those clouds i know it is shining bright
all throughout my life it’s there since i was born
God explains why roses bloom among the thorns

rainbows appear when the sky showers against the sun
with the brightness of day, a beautiful bridge is done
but what fun could it give to those whose truths are blind
who can only hear the beauty hidden from behind

i hear the river growls and runs in heavy storms
downstream it goes bombarding rocks and stones
the land dampens as tears pour from heaven
’till the cold embraces me feeling your presence…
