Crave for creativity

The crave for creativity intensifies

when one realisesΒ its meditative powers

and its intoxication for peace

once the life is consumed in the mundane affairs

to save the roof over the head and the rice on the plate

but how could we forget that creativity is the bread and butter

for a life that is fulfilling

one that makes the mundane seem enlightening

one that turns the profane to sacred…

one that is worth living

Poems, Thoughts

Crawling in circles

It pricked each time the thoughts ran

Like that demon who’d been on a chase

Not an ordinary one, it’s a monster

They say it’s about perspective

It’s true but where’s the silver lining

If perspectives are meant to be countered

I’d be crawling, not running, in circles

Because most of the time,

It’s unbearable.

Poems

One more time

I have told myself to reach the surface each time the wave attempts to pull me into the deep dark hollows of the ocean, and each time I emerge with the sun’s rays shining on me, I smile in victory at the death of the demons I fought, yet they return to drown me into the same black pits, and I type this with a tight chest, heavy breathing, hoping these string of words will cease the palpitations and I can swim up to the sun’s glow one more time.

Poems

Born to fight

you cry and scream like a child when your heart takes the blade of betrayal, longing for a hold of love to mend the broken pieces, your eyes wonder for the answers but the world is full of unexplained chaos, even a touch of empathy does not warm the frozen heart, but you just breathe my little angel, because in this uncertain, unexpected, unfair world, you are born to be a mighty child of God who is armed with the pain of the world as a weapon to destroy the devils that come back at you a second, third or fourth time, on your own, with a heart that has melted overtime with wisdom and maturity, because my little angel, you are your own hero in this chaotic world.
