The Gift Of Self

DownUp 0

Time goes by
in a blink of an eye,
and so many times
we sit down and cry.

When our heart aches
and our mind takes
all that it can,
all it foresakes.
It’s our gift of life
that’s primarily at stake.

So from the depth of our soul,
we have one thing, one goal…
to be given and not stolen.
It’s the gift of “ME”.
It’s a passage of life,
our most divine role.

In Time

DownUp 0

Minute by minute
and hour by hour…
I am gaining back
my once lost power.
Powerless and vulnerable
is not what I want to be-
From the depths of darkness
to the tip of serenity-
gaining back what once was lost,
Thank You God!
I am free.

How Blessed Are We

DownUp 0

How blessed are we just to be…
To be able to dream and make that dream come true.
It takes determination and will power,
strength and reassurance hour upon hour.
When the fire we possess
starts brewing inside,
it’s time to release
those inhibitions and pride.
And let our faith and divine grace
lead us toward that magical place
and allow us to continue
at our own precious pace.

Simplicity is Beauty

DownUp 0

In May, when sea-winds pierced our solitudes,
I found the fresh Rhodora in the woods,
Spreading its leafless blooms in a damp nook,
To please the desert and the sluggish brook.
The purple petals fallen in the pool
Made the black water with their beauty gay;
Here might the red-bird come his plumes to cool,
And court the flower that cheapens his array.
Rhodora! if the sages ask thee why
This charm is wasted on the earth and sky,
Tell them, dear, that, if eyes were made for seeing,
Then beauty is its own excuse for Being;
Why thou wert there, O rival of the rose!
I never thought to ask; I never knew;
But in my simple ignorance suppose
The self-same power that brought me there, brought you.

Stronger Than Strong

DownUp 0

Sometimes things go wrong,
even if you feel like you don’t belong,
you need to stay strong.
You may think your life is done,
but you should smile and never run.
If the things you hear make you upset,
please don’t sweat
you still have the rest of your life to live yet,
You can’t controll some things that go on,
and sometimes you wish that you were really gone.
When the situation is hard and long,
stay stronger than strong.

The Unpredictable Smiles and Laughters

DownUp 0

Laughter usually shows a happiness that overflow.
But no one knows the real mening behind it though.
Smiles can cover a heart that is hurting.
As well as the anger that is unseen ang is hiding.

If you really care for a person’s welfare,
You’ll always recognize if it’s real or a feeling of despair.
Remember that not all things are discernible
Just like smiles and laughters which are really unpredictable

Lost Piece

DownUp 0

As the day passes by so fast
Longing for somebody whose care could last
Is the least I could wished for
Though I already knew it was impossible.

Why somebody came unexpectedly?
Created a big question mark before he leaves easily
Am I played by my destiny?
Or I used to let destiny fooled me?

Everything happens for a reason
But why I can’t help to ask those foolish questions?
It really bothers me every time it lingers in my mind
That’s why I really need to do things that could make me unwind.

But how could I escape from this nowhere?
Wherever I looked I could see question marks everywhere
Should I blame all the faults to my destiny?
Or something wrong is just within me?

Acting so damn weird is one of a kind
There’s no such word as “crazy” that could ever defined
Somebody who let their self act this way is out of their mind
And I am considered to be one ‘coz my heart made me blind.

Am I blind because I couldn’t see the truth clearer?
Or is it because I let those false promises entered?
This heart of mine who doesn’t accept failures
And still hold on with those promises that somebody assures.

But what if promises are really made to be broken?
Do I need to keep on holding?
Or time to let go with this feeling?
And let this broken heart mend once again.

But hey! No more but’s and what if’s
I hear somebody whisper that I should kept his promise
Shouldn’t be afraid and keep holding on
Because no matter what happen in his heart I’ll be the only one
For I knew from the start
He’s the “LOST PIECE” that could only puzzle my HEART…
