how easy it is
to confound a truth with lies
political life

dried out as a sponge
a sharp point of brittleness
love began to rain

Nature and life

Nature breathes us life
 spurn its socour, so selfish
hastens our demise

So great its bounty
to abuse it and despise
 bind that undermines

Burnt our bridges, crossed
to late, for the amens repost
inadaquacy

 Ashes of what could be
paradise, dreams unachieved
our stupidity

Heaven's Pull Grows Strong

We are chained to earth,
By our hopes, dreams, appetites,
And loved ones still here.

But the bonds weaken,
As we experience loss,
Of those we most love.

Eventually,
Heaven wins the tug of war,
As grief seeks release.

And spirit flies free,
Its chains snapped by heaven's pull,
Towards those we love.

Thus we fallen rise,
If our lives made us worthy,
By the Grace of God.

Lonely, lost no more,
Open arms awaiting us,
To welcome us home.

My last token

Why am I still here
Danced with death so many times
Last ticket to ride

Progression?

I'm left in the dust
I'm refusing to conform

Lost Soul

Can you see me now?
Great, cause I don't see myself
Help me find my soul

Ascending Hope

Crimson leaves descend,
Silent rivers weave through dreamsó
Autumn's song endures.

You blew home with the
dandelion fluff, found you
asleep in my chair.

THE LOVE OF A WRITER

I wrote my first lines to win love.
Then I wrote to defend what is †right.
I don't know if I was a poet †or writer.
Just some few lines of words but it makes sense.
Then I wrote again. Wether verses or prose, I can't really tell.
Just a rebel writer that I am...

The ink seduced me. I can't stop anymore
I am just an ordinary writer in a low class community school.
I find my purpose in- between the lines.

I love the poem
I love the slam
But I am in love with the lines.

I can't stop anymore because I am a rebel writer.
Spilling the ink in- between the lines resonate louder than the megaphone.

I want my voice to be heard.
I fight the wrong.
- The political malpractice
- The financial thievery
- The religious opium
I see men and women in love.
I see other suicide of love.
I see hope and see hopeless.

I wish I can put my pen at rest here and lock my ink for good.
BUT....
I am a rebel writer.
I fight with my pen.
I bring justice with the ink

I write for love and about love.
And I write when it is legitimate.
I will sink feather into the ink when power abuses †the youths

I am here...
To contribute my quota to our call as writer.
A big clap to all writers...
