I told myself so many times not to touch the light For fear of losing what I had with me But when I approached the flame, bright I finally saw what I wanted to see. All my memories faded into the white light All those unforgettable tales and fights They were all gone, and all that was left was you And I thought, “Where is this going to?” I told myself not to tell all the things I wanted to say Because I was scared and I didn’t want to see who I thought I was But, as a thought came to me, I told them anyway And out came the real me, without any fuss. All my emotions flowed out as words Words untold for so many years They flew out of me as birds, Birds in the form of my unshed tears. I used to tell myself I couldn’t be myself in front of them And that I couldn’t do it anyway. But here I am, laughing again, Saying all the things I wanted to say. ˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆ
Here’s what I have to say.
Be yourselves, even if people don’t accept you. You have to accept yourself for others to accept you.
Love yourself. It’s better to be hated for who you are, than to be hated for who you pretend to be.
Love yourself and everone around you, like what Jesus did to his persecutors.
Thanks for the inspiration @fayannswearing !

A poem rises From silent words: Inkwell blue Words melt Out of the quietness; Drawing the indigo out In the lifting of quill The color of words Warm My home becomes a Belles-lettres morning- And a limitless sky Raw, the virgin stain on my fingers The curve of the cursive In the fire of your eyes The whisper of words In the soul's keeping.
This really lifted my spirits up. Maybe it might do the same for you guys!
stop listening to a sad melody.
quit wandering in deep melancholy.
when almost everything is said and done,
try to move forward because you can.
at times, every sorrow tends to pile up
heartbreaks, heartaches, like boulders they drop
these are all hardships to be human
please cry it out because you can
stop living in a world of regrets.
face the fears and painful secrets.
hurt yourself with truth, don’t run.
embrace your flaws because you can.
the world is radiant, merry, and sunny.
just change your mindset, and you will see.
when you are left with none and no one,
try to be sanguine because you can.
hindrances are always present.
a quest for greatness is not always pleasant.
giving up is never part of the plan.
flash a smile because you can.
Hello everyone! I haven’t written a poem about New Year, but I want to share something I want to remind myself about with you, hoping that it might help.
“There are two sides to yourself, and they are just there, unnoticed.
One is who you are right now, and the other is who you will be.“
Happy New Year everyone! Let’s all hope 2021 will be a better year for everyone around the world.
I feel like a lost star Zooming through space and time, Can’t seem to find What I lack in myself. I see, vividly lost stars Searching for their shine. Looking up at the sky, Gazing at the planets above The beautiful heavens, Crafted with utmost detail. I feel hopeless, colorless Nothing but bleakness. I feel lonely, A solitary person in a world full of people. I am one of those lost stars, Searching endlessly Through the darkest nights Never caring to stop. I feel like a lost star, Zooming through space and time Can’t seem to find What I lack in myself. Gazing through telescopes Big and small Watching, waiting for a light One that shines brighter that most. Looking, searching For a speck of bright gold Placed on the velvet blackness Of the dome surrounding me. I feel hopeless, colorless Nothing but bleakness I feel lonely, A solitary person in a world full of people. I am one of those lost stars Searching endlessly Through the darkest nights Never caring to stop. I feel like a lost star Zooming through space and time Can’t seem to find What I lack in myself.
“How much you’ve grown!” my family would say, “How tall you have become!”
Then I would say, “I do not think so, I have so much work to be done.”
“Have you improved in mathematics?” they’d inquire, ruffling my thick hair.
I’d cower in embarrassment and reply, “Yes, maybe no, perhaps I’m almost there.”
“How is you mother? Is she well?” is one of my aunts’ query.
Then I would pause to think and say, “Oh, she is fine, I am sure; she is always merry.”
Then they would catch up on what had happened lately in their lives,
While my parents talk about incidents at home, and laugh about growing chives.
Meanwhile, I sit in a corner and draw, not having much to do,
And then suddenly, my body shivers: I need to go to the loo.
After walking out the bathroom, I bump into a nearby wall,
Then my older cousin would say, “When that happens to the baby, she bawls.”
We would laugh, arm in arm, not minding grown-ups' business,
Then go out in the garden where my uncles are, lighting the grill with matches.
Then, hours later, we have to go home— its getting fairly dim,
And the sun sinks, deep orange in the low light, right below the sky’s rim.
Hello everyone! Lately, we haven’t seen our families, or have family reunions. The best thing we can do now is to remember fond memories of these family reunions, or call them. So, feeling down lately? Miss so much people aside from family? Call them up! It’ll make their day, as yours too. Stay safe, ya’ll!
Oh, these rainy, rainy days How wet! The feeble branches sway, The clouds block the sun. It doesn’t seem like day, Not at all. The birds are no longer singing The crickets in the shaded grass are singing; The sound of dripping water’s still ringing, Sounding like, “ping, pong, ping!” And wet are the poor birds’ wings. Oh the sun, hidden behind the trees! How I wish the rain would be as nice as these Rainbow colored showers, so free. Back then, running around were we But it is cold rain that I see. Oh, these damp, cold, rainy days— How wet! The feeble trees’ branches sway, The clouds and thick rain block the sun. It doesn’t seem like day, No, my dear, not at all.
Hello everyone! I hope all of you are okay, wherever you are. Please remember that you all are important in this world, I am glad you exist, and I am so thankful that I have you guys in my life– I can’t express my gratitude enough! Also, please leave comments– I want to know what you think, or suggestions, requests, and opinions. Stay safe and healthy, everyone!
Mahal na mahal ko kayo (I love you guys very much)!
Why did you lie to me? You could’ve told me the truth About you and her. So here I am, my cheeks stained with salty tears Just because of a simple lie. But this lie was the worst I had encountered. It was the lie of you and another. You should’ve told me, Told me about her. I wouldn’t have minded Because the truth was you wanted her And not me, Even though I loved you with all my heart I loved you with all my soul, And I wanted to spend my life with you. But the truth was you weren’t real-- Your love was fake, You were one big mistake. Go away, leave me here— I was better off without you Shut your mouth, it’s filthy, Full of lies that break hearts.
I miss you, come back home In the shape of a beautiful paper crane, Its intricate design meeting my curious eyes. Your wings are flapping, sending warm breezes Into my world of us. I wanna fold a thousand paper birds Just to grant my wish that is you. One picture is worth a thousand words And that picture is you. Come, come closer to me So I can see the flowers on your colorful wings. Oh paper crane, my paper crane, Your soft eyes meet mine; My face brightens with a shine. Stay by my side, walk with me for a while And hold me in your arms. My paper crane, I don’t need to fold a thousand Because you’re here with me, And that is all I need, It’s all I want, And what I want is only you, my paper crane.
Once upon a time, there was a lonely girl. She lived alone, afraid to love again, For once upon a time, there came a man, But broke her heart and ran. Once upon a time, I felt like her, A little rouge who wanted to leave home, A little savage who went and roamed All around other peoples zones. Once upon a time, however, Her dreams came true, and she became famous, Although her ‘friends’ called her the lamest. Then a boy came along, and on her lips he kissed. Once upon a time, I was broken-hearted But I never stopped dreaming, Or feeling what I was feeling, So continue to live on, though it’s hard Because one day, you’ll be exactly what you wanted to be.
I wanna wake up with you beside me And be where I was destined to be: With you With you. I wanna shine bright right where you are, Because your eyes are beautiful like the stars-- I wanna do all this with you Hope it comes true. Come with me, take my hand and we’ll go together, Jump off the brink of time Stay with me, don’t leave me ever; Just stay with me on the line Right on the line, Stay with me, on the line And be mine. I wanna climb the trees you climb And write those words that rhyme. I wanna do it all with you, All with you. I wanna walk on the path you walk And stay right there, listening to you talk. I wanna do all of this with you, All with you, And all for you. These times I will forever treasure All these memories with you and I— I’ll love them without measure, But I wanna wake up right where you are, Even follow you to the stars All for you All with you All of the things we do. I wanna wake up with you beside me And be where I was destined to be With you With you. I wanna shine bright right where you are, Because your eyes are beautiful like the stars- I wanna do all this with you Hope it comes true.
Hearts are beating fast in the night, Now I see that you are my light. Fingertips slowly grasp each other The beating gets a little faster, As you pull me closer to you Suddenly a feeling comes over me Is this love? Is this love that I’m feeling? This queer feeling that came over me The moment I met your wonderful gaze Our hands are firmly entwined We can hear our voices, whispering inside We can hear our heartbeat getting louder, louder, louder.
Screw all those stupid rules Let’s just be ourselves just for now; We don’t have any time to lose. Lets just have fun, but how? You start a conversation One full of ridiculous nonsense. It makes my eyes sparkle with laughter, Then you notice and I quickly turn away. The next day, all you do is stare at me. I wonder what this feeling’s supposed to be? Late nights with friends, scoldings together, Long converstaions over the phone. Late the next day again, Fail on the test again Eyes once more sparkle with joy At the sight of you. So much fun we had together, So much things we went through together, Those times when we were lost together But now our hearts are found. Those times when we would laugh Our throats would be sore the next day. Now I know what that feeling is It’s a sense of belonging, a sense of friendship-- Something I have never felt before, Something I really love. It’s nice to have someone to be there for you. It’s wonderful to just be with you. Without that mask of who I pretended to be, How wonderful to have friends like you. Thank you, I really appreciate it Thank you, for being my dearest friends.
The butterfly follows me, everyday Leading me across the path, fluttering their wings. Trust me, it says, we will lead the way to happiness. I float along, lost in my thoughts, like a butterfly, Waving my arms trying to keep up with its swift wings. Butterfly, butterfly, slow down and let me follow you home. So free, you spend your days in the sun, having fun. Walking along the path, I try to keep up. Wait, I say, wait for me I want to find myself too, I want to know who I am and what I am in this world. Butterfly, butterfly, beautiful butterfly, lead me home to you.
I just can’t Take anymore of this nonsense, Can’t take anymore of this face Expressionless and cruel. I just can’t Take anymore of this world. I’m slowly drowning, Turning blue. Tell me, do you care for me? Do you think of me? Do love me Like you used to? I’m going away Far from your lies, Far from you And your lying face. I’m going away From this wicked world, To find a life of my own, To find a place of my own. I can’t be With a someone who doesn’t love me. I can’t be with you, Or even think of you. I just can’t Take any more of this world, This world full of lies This world full of cruelty. Because I’m going away To a place unknown to myself, To a place that I don’t know To a place, a place of my own. I’m going away Far from your cold touch, Far from your lies And your useless words. So goodbye, Goodbye dear, Goodbye, And we’ll meet in darkness once more.
Sitting by the window Wondering what to do And then, so suddenly, I think of you All the times that I cried in front of you All the times that we spent after stressful school All our sweet conversations Gone, blown away by the wind And so, Here I am in this little box of misery Here I am, trapped in my own thoughts Here I am, wondering what to do When I suddenly, so suddenly, I think of you Time, I need time. Oh that sweet thing of mine Time, I need time. To reclaim the things that are originally mine Here I am in my little box of misery Here I am, trapped in my mind Here I am, wondering what to do When I suddenly think of you. When I suddenly think of you. All the times we spent together, All the times we enjoyed, All the times of sorrow and pain, Will they ever come again?
Hopelessly searching for a light in the dark, Wandering in the cold air looking for you. But do you care? I don’t think that’s true. So here I am searching in the dark Trying to find a way to look for you. I don’t even care I’m cold. I am still walking, freezing slowly to death, Trying hopelessly trying to find you Wandering throughout the frozen winter forest Running, my feet are wet with blood, Fingernails blue with cold Where are you? Where have you been? All this time I wanted you to hear My sad last words, but here I am In a never ending search for something I would never find anyway. Slowly I fall down, shivering, lost In these cold woods where you once were Done, I say, I’m done My time here is finished I only wanted to see you one last time; I only wanted you to see me, hear me. And I believed you Only to figure out that somehow You disappeared into the dark forest. As my eyes close, I hear your sweet voice Telling me you loved me I smile one last time With the thought of you in my mind.
Seems like a year has passed Since the day that you left me. I already knew we wouldn’t last But in truth, its only day three. How can I make this more bearable Without you beside me? Walking down the hall, Why can’t my thoughts let me be? Leaving this world almost seems easy With all the pain in my heart. My breathing’s starting to get wheezy With the world that sets us apart. Won’t you come back to my arms And stay there until the end of time? Won’t you come here and make my cold heart warm So I can feel you are mine? Seems like a year has passed Since the day that you left me. I already knew we wouldn’t last But in truth, its only day three. My life has become even colder Without you pullin’ me closer Maybe it’s time to say goodbye And jump off the edge? My life has become empty Without you, don’t you see? You just left me there to cry Maybe its time to say goodbye And jump off the edge of time.
Let’s have fun together again Like we used to. Let’s dream about the world again Like we do every single day; The branches start to sway My heart begins to break. Because I found you with someone else Locked in an unforgettable embrace; You are running faster and faster away I am losing this race. Let’s sing together again Like we used to. Let’s walk, hand in hand Like we used to do. But now I’m walking alone Singing a sad song. Why did this have to happen? Let’s just start over again. Why does love have to exist? You were my only wish. Run, run around and shout Scream, dance, walk about I cry out your name Hoping you’d feel the same. Can’t we laugh together again Like we used to? Can’t we talk together again Like we used to? Now I’m sitting alone Gazing over the rhone. Let’s have fun together again Like we used to. Let’s dream about the world again Like we do every single day; The branches start to sway You already went away.
Head full of thoughts Heart empty. Mind full of dreams; Ones that can’t be fulfilled. But my feelings are still hopeful For the end of this crisis; And then my heart is slowly filling up With sense of belonging, A sense of love from you. You simply take me away From the darkness surrounding me. Before I shouted: Oh help, I'm drowning, But you pulled me out of the black pool; You wiped my tears dry. You comforted me throughout our friendship. No more of sadness, No more of loneliness. They are forever banished from my mind. Thoughts of you and your love surrounding me Will stay forever in my mind forevermore. Thank you for protecting me; Thank you for the times We spent with each other. Birthdays, meetings-- I will treasure these forever In this little mind of mine. Memories of togetherness Will never be forgotten. My candle of love For you will never be extinguished. Thank you so much, dear friend For helping me on the way To happiness and love. I hope this friendship will never end, For I love you so very much. Mountains we climbed, Hard, cold ones too. Rough currents we waded through, But we've crossed the bridge of hardship, And we've finally reached our plce, That sweet, sweet place In the world of memory, love, everlasting friendship, and trust.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE WHO SUPPORTED ME!! (I’m looking at you, dingdongmalapingpong.)
Well, maybe I will try to publish the first chapter of my fanfictions. And that’s gonna be tomorrow. I hope these posts will be successful!
