Me Versus the World (free-verse)

“What are these verses for?“ Me versus the world. Stone cold, but I remain warm, Keeping my peace hidden from the swarm of leeches, I’ve been warned to refrain from, Disdain painted across their faces as they see me making it without them, Without a handout I stand out, For as much as they putContinue reading “Me Versus the World (free-verse)”

C O M P A S S I O N

The intensity of energy sending tingling senses across the membrane, Immense anxiety tension, When I see their faces once again, Nostalgic memories that left stains, A menace to my brain, Had to train my train of thoughts, To stop bombarding me with negativity, That causes my spirit to bleed, My amygdala has no time toContinue reading “C O M P A S S I O N”

R I S I N G

We are rising,Awakened by the Divine light,With a message for us to fulfill our purpose,“But I thought I was worthless?” ‘Guess not.Surprised by the gifts we’ve got,With a goal in mind, to go beyond gold mines. While the world despises how high we choose to rise,The true colors of mankind is tragic,The unveiling of theContinue reading “R I S I N G”

A V O I D A N T

The eccentric loner hones in on the creative gifts they were born with, Despite being torn from past disappointments, Though it may be hard to cope, scoping on the possibility of hope, Social anxiety comes knocking on our door, Me against the world, Overthinking paranoia, Unseen toxic ammonia, Clouding our perception of reality, As weContinue reading “A V O I D A N T”

You’re Against All Odds

By doing something oddly different, out of the ordinary, Only you hold the keys to this honorary door, When you come up,The same ones who ignored you will wanna get to know you, The majority of people are phony, This gift was given to uplift the hearts of the forgotten, The ones who were toldContinue reading “You’re Against All Odds”

Let’em Doubt You

No one’s expected to believe in you, only you can fuel that, and the power increases through undying faith and determination that we get from God. We work as hard as we pray and meditate. Everyone doubts you, and that’s perfectly fine. Perhaps, you may have been taken for granted or seen as a joke,Continue reading “Let’em Doubt You”

Boxing as a Metaphor for Life

“Protect yourself at all times…!” The bell rings, symbolizing the commencement of a bout, By the end of this fight you’ll know what life is all about, Just make sure you make it through without getting socked in the mouth, Keep elbows down to block incoming punches, possible uppercut, Leave no openings otherwise the voidContinue reading “Boxing as a Metaphor for Life”

L O V E vs L U S T

Some of us confuse love with lust, and end up getting hurt in the end. Life takes many twists and turns, you may not intend to hurt the other person, but it can happen. That’s why we must have self-awareness, so that we never hurt someone again or be hurt. Now what is love? Love,Continue reading “L O V E vs L U S T”

How Dreams Can Heal You

It’s those reoccurring dreams, The ones replaying the same theme, And it keeps repeating until your fortitude exceeds high enough to defeat it, Until you can relinquish the links that chains you to your pain, A strain that drives the mind insane, and it hides, disguises itself as a defense mechanism, When it is anotherContinue reading “How Dreams Can Heal You”

C O C O O N

Moonlit skies dyes the clouds indigo, When your mind is inclined to dig gold, Yearning to unearth the gems stuck within, ‘Til it gets struck, no more living in the rough. Do we have to be broken to be made whole? How else can we see within the crevice if it weren’t for the breakingContinue reading “C O C O O N”

Running: As a Form of Healing Escapism

Just like in that poem, ‘10 Years Ago,’ I was in a dark place mentally, my sense of hope was crumbling bit by bit as the memories of the past haunted me, it pushed me onto the verge of depression. Depression, when you lose sense of existence, Existence feels pointless, The only things that onceContinue reading “Running: As a Form of Healing Escapism”

When Darkness Once Brewed Within (poem)

“I was approaching closely toward the burning furnace, I could feel the heat come near me, making me weary, but it couldn’t burn me. A power of a higher source saved me from the fiery trial, (not guilty!) And openned the doors and propelled me into the royal blue sky.” I remember the days whenContinue reading “When Darkness Once Brewed Within (poem)”

The Healing Art of Prose Writing

Many people have their own interpretation about what prose writing is. It goes deeper than just a dictionary definition or a literary art form. The art of prose writing delves much deeper than the surface many have kept it on. It is cathartic healing by way of rhythmic, clever-linguistic writing, that opens the disheartened hardenedContinue reading “The Healing Art of Prose Writing”

10 Y E A R S A g o…

If you were to t a k e a look through m y e y e s, 10 years ago,You’d notice a lack of glow,As the negativity seeds have been sown,Forlorn and torn,From a young age, couldn’t contain much rage, Nihilistic perspective, didn’t care about the future, because it’s bleak anyway,Energy leeches almost everywhere, tryingContinue reading “10 Y E A R S A g o…”

N O C T U R N A L Intruders

Panic attacks, a defense mechanism to quickly awaken from nocturnal intrusions, I suppose it is a way to stop those from taking over your vessel while you nestle in your bed resting, Hyperventilating, heart palpitating, awaiting the end to the sudden turbulence. I’m compelled to awaken from the sudden rush of adrenaline, for no reasonContinue reading “N O C T U R N A L Intruders”

What’s This Life About?

You were once swimming in murky waters, Evil lurking with you overlooking the light behind you, Attempting to signal you back home, But we’ve turned our backs from it momentarily, Feeding our naive curiosity, fueled by our animosity, that was embedded in our psyche, The world has programmed us to self-destruct, Some people call itContinue reading “What’s This Life About?”

PASSING S T O R M

Ride through the storm, Worrisome of course, That it may obliterate my home, Wind soaring through, Huge rain droplets furiously clapping against the windows, Like it knows who’s home, Don’t be overconcerned with who may betray you, A ray of light will open the revelatory veil for you to revel the truth that’s been unraveled,Continue reading “PASSING S T O R M”

Camping as a Spiritual Retreat

It’s more than just a trip. The outdoors has plenty to offer: beyond the scenic natural landscapes and well-nourished soil molded by a force more powerful than simply erosion, the crashing cascade of water falling from atop a plateau, streaming down into the fresh water river, willow trees extending its arms showing you can neverContinue reading “Camping as a Spiritual Retreat”
