Sugar

A little bit of sugar dust

is probably all we need

to sweeten the bitterness

of our everyday world.

Faith

how does it feel like to have renewed faith
a kind that reminds us that it is only us who is in charge of our own lives
whatever fate may be we decide and let be
now I take this oath to remind myself
that I am my existence
that this humanity is my strength and You my hope
and I remind the little one down the street
that I see the star in her eye
because she did too

Poems

The Child of Freedom

You’re like that rose

Thorny but beautiful

They look at you

With eyes wide open

But child, don’t be afraid

It’s all a human game

A mind puzzle

They snatch your beauty

With just a gaze

But child, don’t be afraid

It’s your time to see the world

A world with roses

A world with thorns

But a blessing of love

Yes child, flap your wings

Soar up like a dove

Bring back the tranquility

The serenity, the peace

We long for it

Yes child, take a look

It’s a beautiful world

When we see the human race

As one family

Of love

 

Go child, it’s in your hands now.
