You, Mirror

everyday i see you hanging on the wall
like the eyes of night guarding moments at the hall
being a spectator in my daily life
you didn’t seem to mind
in the spell of silence, radiating fright

got scared when i passed by you last night
bright stroke of light came in from outside
i felt the quivers of my bones
as my mind deciphered impending overtones

it might be an illusion
when the ghost suddenly appeared
i heard myself screaming

as i saw myself with a different face
but i took time looking at you
i realized the ghost was me
scaring myself out of a mirror
faked by the moment into a horror

sometimes our lives may get into tears
as we cower ourselves in some fears
we can’t be weak in every scene
strength is derived from faith and felt from within

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
