Believe

As soon as I saw this necklace on Bradford Exchange I knew I had to have it. Not because I am terribly fond of butterflies and flowers but more because of the writing on the back.

All writers know that writing is a hard and lonely road filled with doubts and hopelessness. Yes, writing is a very rewarding task but as with everything it also has its dark days. That is why writers have something they hold on to during those troubled times. Something that will help them keep working on their dream, something that will remind them that giving up is not an option.

This necklace is a way for me to not forget why I write, despite of all the frustrations and setbacks I keep encountering. Whenever I feel myself giving in to self-doubt and giving up I just touch my necklace and remember the words written on the back. I am then reminded that first and foremost, I have to believe in the beauty of my dreams. It may be hard now but one day, this will be all worth it. The keyword is to believe, to believe in ourselves and in our dreams. If not, then nothing remains, all of the things we do will be for naught.

Beginnings

Wrapped

in darkness

hiding

in shadows

my true self

slowly emerges;

once shy

uncertain,

doubtful

now

gaining confidence

the world

is mine

to explore,

along

with

a hundred dreams within

I know

I will reach

my goal.

 

Learning

to breathe,

to reach out,

to live

my journey

has just started

on a road

full of

endless possibilities.

What happens when your world is shattered from within? When you can’t run nor hide from yourself?

UNMASKED is a poetry novel that deals not just with Bipolar but generally, with the darkness in all of us. When it overwhelms us, threatens to consume us, and how we fight to regain ourselves. It is a story of loss, hope, and survival.

Unraveling

I am
a mystery
as we all are
for who
can really say
“I know the real you?”

Awesome and
inspiring
magnificent,
melancholy
these are
who I am
and
who I am not

See beyond
my eyes
dig deep
in my soul
love
my darkness
fear
my dreams
then
you will know
who I am,
some parts of me
at least.

A Love Story

Take my hand
take my soul
conquer me, my love
I submit to your heart;
mesmerize me under the stars
awaken my deepest desires,
know my passions
unleash my dreams
let us be united
let us be bound
for I am yours
and you are mine.

Remembering
our romantic walks,
late night talks
some of love’s recipes
we enjoyed;
our picnics by the lake
cuddles by a tree’s shade
picture perfect memories
captured under the sun’s soft rays;
that day
you gave me your hand
you gave me your soul
I conquered you honey,
you submitted to my heart
I knew then it has began
forever, you and I
for you are now mine
and I will be irrevocably yours.

Book Update 2

Hello again! ^_^ To give you an idea or feel of my book, Unmasked, here are two samples (the poem The Cottage and Living in Faith are part of the poetry novel):

Trance
In space and time
outside looking in
the world sluggishly turns
everyone moves
an hour at a time;
stuck in stasis
I stand at
the edge of existence,
grasping at
the dregs of life.

In Between
The netherworld
beckons
I am neither awake
nor asleep
dreams are impossible
to open eyes
a world here and there
is where I am in

Cold, barren
wasted land;
golden canaries,
singing nightingales
two worlds I have to choose from,
two worlds I have to balance.
