No load, no burden on his back…

he smiled at me

opened his palm

walked a few steps towards me




uttered a mouthful of words

as i handed out a twenty peso bill

under his nails the dirt were talking



a blazing smile burst in flames

leaving a sketch of a satisfied being

priceless exhibit of a smile born of a painting



he walked away as his back giggled

with joy in the distance i could tell

his happiness was worth its weight in gold




no load, no burden on his back

just a happy face no room for sadness

like clouds his spirit was lifted



a fool loved by everybody in town

happy go lucky as he is

could i be like him



he’s everybody’s colleague

running errands like a servant

could i be like him



not a single day he wore a frown

not minding how he’ll begin his daily moments

not minding how he’ll end the day’s activities



i could not be him

he could not be me

each has his own destiny…

Find a heart…it’s a dare !

i have delivered hearts
to where they ought to be
to places i haven’t gone
bringing those hearts with me

running errands all around
looking for the hearts’ addresses
in the city thousands abound
and i’m feeling i’m not really hopeless

nights have been so sleepy
thinking about the heart’s beating
is it sad today or feeling happy
i guess it’s in the mode of resting

valentines is so near
and i can’t find a heart to pair
come with me let’s have a date
and let our hearts start the dare…
