~My dearest~

I am but a shadow in the dark
Slowly coming out
Gently whispering
Unto your tormented soul…

“Its gonna be alright”

My Dreams

If my dreams have powers,
I would dream of a majestic house;
a house with a luxurious living room…
a grandiose staircase…
a magnificent dining area…
an elegant chandelier….
a towering balcony….

But my dreams don’t have powers,
So, i didn’t get a majestic house;
but a wonderful home,
With joyful kids welcoming in our living room….
with cheerful girls running back and forth our stairs…
with visitors admiringly looking at our chandelier…
With friends enjoying the afternoon view in our balcony…

If my dreams have powers,
I would dream of a perfect world;
where true friends are by your side in moments of sadness…
where neighbors are stronger and wiser….
where love is an act of surrendering to another person…

But my dreams don’t have powers,
So I have friends who are by my side in happy times,
because their joy is to see me delighted….
I have neighbors who are vulnerable because they have confidence in
themselves, and at some point they know we all stumble…
and  we love because we have faith in another person…

If my dreams have powers,
i would dream to believe that inner beauty matters most,
than outer beauty….
i would believe that friends maintain an open door…
i would believe that people are disciplined and organized…

But my dreams don’t have powers,
so i believe that outer beauty is inner beauty seen by the naked eye…
i believe that friends should only be interested in opening one door,
the door to my heart……
and i believe discipline is necessary but we have to be spontaneous
and enthusiastic, it makes us live life perfectly…

 

 

Empowered-A Cinq Trois Decala Rhyme

20180626_214003

“I am a flickering light shining the brightest; because i am empowered”

 

Empowered

You don’t take away from me that one thing i deserve, one thing.
You don’t tell me what to do ‘cos you deemed, as human being.
I shall be in solitude, will be silent, will be quiet.
I will give my tormented soul a break, but i do not quit.
You can hate me, you can  curse me, but i will remain cogent.
You will see beauty in silence, in weeping,  that’s resilient.
You will understand hope against trials, that’s bright and brilliant.
When confusion and fear arise, it is truely upsetting.
You do not take away,  that one thing i deserve, not a bit.
For i have hoped, i have loved, i am clever and i am apt.

Life (Inverted etheree)

When life hits you the hardest, just be brave
When all else seemed to fail, just rise up
For every tear drop, there is hope
For every pain, there lies joy
As long as people care
As long as love lives
We will be fine
We endure
Live, love,
Care.

 

Poetic Experiment

Here is something from my fellow blogger and long time follower and supporter in response to our double tetractys challenge…

 

POETIC EXPERIMENT

That

pesky

pussy cat

just purrs all day

Her shiny fur she licks until it’s clean

A tiny fly distracts her eye–and jumps

Down to catch it

But she lands

Into

Mud!

A “Tetractys”—my first. “)
