The Boat of Life

Sometimes it’s fun

sometimes it’s bad

you just have to hang on

while it steadies

safe and sound

 

Rocking back and forth

going forward and backward

you never know where to go

will the destination be good?

 

Holding on for dear life

all you can do is pray

as you are whisked

to places unknown

with only an oar

for a guide

 

A hole might appear

putting an end to your plans,

take heed! Be cautious,

be prepared

 

Wherever it takes you

heave a sigh, let go

you’ve no control

only an idea

have faith

let that be enough

let hope be fruitful

This so-called Life

45202_original

It’s the slow

descent

to madness

the thwarting

of every plans

it’s the arduous

ascent

to sanity

the road

made straight

paths made clear

it’s the spiral walk

it’s the forward run;

it’s life

as it is,

it’s life

naked and bare.

The Plea

feeling-hopeful

Please

remember me now

exactly

the way

I am;

calm,

collected,

sweet;

one who

plans,

someone

who

loves life.

Please

remember me now

just

the way

I am;

optimistic,

understanding,

laughing;

one

who

truly cares,

someone

who values

life.

For when

the beast

shows itself

all of this

will

be lost,

I

will be

pushed

to the

back

forced

to watch

my very self

destroyed.

Little Angels

I just learned that a dear friend lost her baby and it is by far the saddest news I have received these past months. I cannot begin to comprehend the amount of pain my friend felt upon hearing the news and I have no words that are good enough to comfort her. This poem is wholeheartedly dedicated to her and to all the moms (and dads) who lost a child. No one should ever go through that kind of experience but these people do and I hope they know that they are not alone. We may never know how painful this experience is for them but we will always be here to listen, hug, and to simply be there for them.

How do you
comfort
a mother
who isn’t?
There will never
be the right words,
right affection,
right hug
when a life
has been torn,
when no explanation
has been said.
A love in
its purest,
ethereal,
transcendent;
a love
beyond
time
deep
raw,
true;
a bond
that will never break,
a bond
even death
cannot severe.
When her pain
runs deep,
when her womb
refuses to forget
how can you comfort
a mother who isn’t?
How can you comfort
the strongest person
she will become?
She is all beauty
grace,
and splendour now
as what was lost
will forever
watch over her.

Free

I want to be free
free
to be who I am
I don’t have wings
but I can fly
fly high and soar
be above mountains
be one with the clouds
be unfettered
and unchained
unbound and unleashed

I want to be free
free
to decide
to say what I want
to own my life
to drive through mud
to run through waves

I want to be free
free
to be me.

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.

Poetry Novel

Hi! It’s been a while since I posted and it’s because I have been busy finishing my book! Yup, I am finally going to have a book – my very, first book! Yay! 😀 To be exact, it’s a poetry novel entittled Unmasked.

It’s all about Manic Depression. My experience with it – how I am and how I feel when I have my MD until I get better. Basically, it’s a book that is a window to a manic depressive’s mind and life. It’s divided into three parts:

Pathos
Anaktisi
Iremia

The Greek words were accidental, I was in one of my reveries when it popped in my head. When I looked up the meaning it fit the first part which was all about being in my MD state. Then I continued using Greek words for the other parts.

I’m 90% complete with it. After that comes the book design and illustrations. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish all this by November so please pray for me! I’ll keep you updated as fast as I can! Thanks ^_^
