Happy New Year!

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.
–Me

Happy New Year everyone! Let’s all hope 2021 will be a better year for everyone around the world.

dark night

Sweet little things that I think of 
Specially at night 
Makes me dream and takes my mind off 
The sadness and fright 
Of the dark. 
Night envelopes the lamp’s light 
Making it a beautiful sight. 
But as I lay here, my friend, 
I think of you.  

Morning comes, I yawn and see the birds outside, 
Living, flying so free.  
Sometimes, though, I want to hide, 
Because I am all alone, with nothing to see.  
The day passes quickly, with me, thinking of you, my friend Then the morning and afternoon cames to end, 
And I lay awake once more in bed.  
I see the dark night  
Enveloping the lamp’s light 
Making it a beautiful sight.
But as I lay here, my friend, I think of you.  
Staying here inside makes it so hard to think of 
The grass under my feet, 
Makes life hard without you to talk to all day,
Back then, when I had more to say.  
The daylight and the moonlight  
Guides me through my life, 
At least, my life stuck here.  
Dark night, 
Lamp light, 
The fright is gone 
I think of you.

Pasko sa Pilipinas (Christmas in the Philippines)

Brush strokes, forming a painting,
Drops of water in a pond. 
Little bells on the door, jingling,
To greet our visitors fond. 


Yule-tide is coming, the tree is up,
The smell of baked cookies wafting through the air. 
I relax in a corner with a cup
Of hot chocolate, and wonder why the rain’s still there. 


In other countries, snow is falling,
Graceful skaters are scanning the frozen lake. 
But here the rain falls into streams with a ping,
And the weather could be sunny, give or take. 


There are people making the parol,
And fill the busy streets with the star lights,
Engines buzz and tires all roll,
Making their way through the Christmas night. 


Santa Claus will come, I’m sure,
With his bag of presents through the rain 
Though not a quite as he came before,
I know he will come again. 


I write busily in a corner, letters to ever so many people
Who might be on their way. 
Outside, the bells ring, and I look out to see the church steeple,
And dress up for Christmas Day.

Cradle of Sadness

Hush! A little girl of twelve is curled by the window, Pondering her day. 
She thinks about running away, when she’s fifteen or so, Because, for her, there’s no other way 
Of escaping from the clouds covering her world of darkness, Or to banish the weights of sadness 
That they unknowingly put on her aching head. 
Slowly, as she thinks, she crawls to the bed. 
“Dear me!” she exclaims, as a thought comes to her. “I shall go to a world of writers, where the sophisticated wear hats of real fur!”
She pulls the blanket over her head, to shield herself from the cold air, 
Then turns to her dear teddy, quite old with wear. 
“Someday, Pooh, we’ll both run off to someplace, 
Where there are people who don’t think I’m a waste of space. Where there are unlimited pens and ink, 
And hundereds— maybe thousands— of places we can think.” 
The rain falls outside her window pane, glistening in the late afternoon light, 
And she falls asleep, the teddy in her warm embrace. 
She is still mumbling in her sleep, 
“Tomorrow, escape I might, 
To a world of pen and paper.”

Gray and Violet

The two sides of me suddenly show themselves, 
Along with my past and present.  
I have to deal with the pain, the guilt, of not being able to tell a sweet secret, 
One that also has a bitter side to my story.  
The brightly colored boxes show themselves, and I unwillingly ignore them, 
Knowing that on the other side someone is waiting 
For me to stay.  
Hearts on a single side, and bitterness in the honey.   
Gray and violet, side by side, emerge in the dark abyss of my mind.  
To think that I have been waiting for something that will never happen, 
That I had wasted an entire year of my life 
On something I’d never get.  
Vibrant violet and lonely gray, all in one person.  
Rain falls nearly everyday, thundering through the lonely streets in my head.  
Outside, I don’t know it’s sunny— all I know is violet and gray.  
There is a key I can’t find, a puzzle I can’t solve.  
A feeling I can’t seem to hide, so that it appears in everything I write.  
Compared to last year, my world seems so heavier, like the flame in me disappeared.  
Instead, there’s cold water raining down on me day by day, And the feeling, begging me to let it out of it’s prison cell.  
Once I was violet, the last of all the colors, yet the brightest in my life.  
But now I’m gray, gray as the clouds covering the sun.   
So many layers of feelings in this heart, so many that it makes it heavy.  
I can’t seem to carry all of this— I feel as though it’s dragging me to the earth.  
I just want to be happier, but why doesn’t my heart hear anything I say? 
Others see I’m happy, but I’m the opposite.   
So many “why’s” in this maze of thoughts, 
So many lies in different places.  
I want to be happy, please, just for once in my life.   Someone help me, I’m falling slowly in the pool of cold rain.  I’ve become vibrant violet and lonely gray, all in one person, 
And rain falls nearly everyday, thundering through the lonely streets in my head.

The Forest

Trees swaying in the meadow, 
Birds flying in the air, 
The mesmerizing sound of the crow 
Come into the forest, it’s beautiful there. 

Tall grass swaying in the breeze, 
Minnows swimming in the pond, 
There’re no areas as wonderful as these, 
For they form with you a strong bond. 

The little critters crawling on the ground, 
The butterflies flying over flowers.
Here what is lost can be found, 
But it will take some hours. 

Come and canoe in the river, 
See the fishes below.
I came here once with my sister, 
And she helped me row. 

There might be fairies here 
If you know where to look. 
Maybe they are far or near, 
Or perhaps near the brook. 

Let’s all walk in the forest, 
And see what we can find.
We can laugh, dance, and jest, 
So come now, let’s leave the city behind!

distracted

Wake up, found myself on the floor 
Slowly walk out the door 
New books’re coming, I’m sure 
Later, perhaps I’ll read some more.  
But the drama in the novel can’t distract me 
Instead of knights and queens, it’s you I see.  
I had resolved to just move on 
To never think of you at the break of dawn.  
But how come your voice is still in my head? 
How come it’s not the adventure story instead? 
There’s always a tiny hint of worry  
When it rains: “Hey, go home and hurry.” 
There is a strange feeling, a touch I miss 
And even stranger, your gentle kiss.  
“Get out!” I’d have said to the voice in my mind.  
“Go away, or I’ll peel you off lile a rind!” 
Just leave, I don’t want you anyway. 
But somehow, I need you, and the little voice stays. 
I absentmindedly turn the yellowing pages, 
Not minding the tales of damsels and sages, 
And look out of the white-paned window 
To see the trees, with branches swaying low.  
There, in the free wind, an empty swing just rocks.  
Where you once gave me a heart-shaped box 
Full of sweets and sugarcanes, 
Then realizing my gaze, I look away from the pane. 
This is what I am right now: distracted.  
Why do I still think of you in my head? 
There, once again, is the heavy feeling in my heart 
That I used to feel when we were apart.  
How is it, that I lost control? 
Why’s this feeling digging me up like a mole? 
I’ll just try to forget you, even if I can’t  
Your eyes, your music, your smile and your scent.  
So in the end, I just close my eyes, 
Thinking of the time that went by.

On My Pillow

[verse] 
I’m lying down, restless at midnight.  
Can’t seem to get my eyes to close.  
I see the yellow lamplight, 
Its radiance dancing like a rose.  

[pre-chorus]  
Mmm mmm mmm, how do you get to sleep 
If your head’s too full of thoughts? 
Mmm mmm mmm, do you lie in bed and count sheep? 
Or all the things you lost? 

[chorus] 
I am lying awake, thinking of the world outside.  
I want to run away, but there’s no place to hide.  
I want to go out and run and shout.  
But I’m trapped here, and it’s my tomorrow I’m thinking about.  

[verse] 
In the dark, I see the inkblots on my fingers 
Reminds me of the days when I wrote till dawn.  
I try to get my mind off outside, but its still lingers 
Up till now, I want to run free, free as a fawn 

[pre-chorus] 
Mmm mmm mmm, how do you get to sleep 
If your head’s too full of thoughts? 
Mmm mmm mmm, do you lie in bed and count sheep? 
Or all the things you lost? 
 

[chorus] 
I am lying awake, thinking of the world outside.  
I wasnt to run away, but theres no place to hide.  
I want to go out and run and shout.  
But I’m trapped here, and it’s my tomorrow I’m thinking about.  

[bridge] 
Will we stay here forever? 
When will we all be together? 
When will be able to feel the grass under our toes? 
When will we see again our friends and our foes? 

[chorus] 
I am lying awake, thinking of the world outside.  
I want to run away, but theres no place to hide.  
I want to go out and run and shout.  
But I’m trapped here, and it’s my tomorrow I’m thinking about.  

[outro] 
I remember, I remember  (Running outside, yeah) 
I remember, I remember (When we didnt have to hide inside) 
[slowly fade out....]

Lost Stars

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.

when i can’t sleep

I can't sleep.
There's so much I want to do,
So much I want to say.
But I can't write them down in one go.
My eyes dont want to close.
I lay awake for an hour,
Wondering about the universe,
About what I'll do tomorrow.
I think about a new song I might write,
Only, the lyrics seem to be forced.
I'll just turn on the lamp and get my pen.
Green and gold is with which I write this.
I'll write about crimson robes and knights of chivalry,
Or maybe some tragic ends for some lovers in a story.
Perhaps I'll think of a poem
With words so sweet that even I wil cry.
Or maybe a haiku, only I don't know how.
How about a play, like Shakespeare?
But I don't know how to do those things too.
Up 'till now I still can't sleep,
I can hear my sister's soft breathing
And the sound of the clock ticking.
Twelve midnight and I'm still awake-
Why is this sleeplessness taking over me?
Maybe it's just the sweet chocolate bar I had.
But, my eyelids slowly begin to droop-
This is it! Finally, my busy mind wants to sleep.
I lie down on my pillow, and my mind suddenly goes blank.
I could sleep after all.

Outcast

Did I live for a purpose?
What am I doing here?
Petals are falling from the rose
From their mouths a leer.
I want to tell them I didn't mean it,
That I apologized,
But they just don't see it,
And the monsters in me rise.
I want to show them I'm nice,
That I'm worthy, sweet, and honest.
But it's just me they despise,
So I feel like a bird out of it's nest.

Family Reunion

“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!

rainy days

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.

the miserable truth.

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.

Paper Crane

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.

Us In Quarantine

Turn the the lights on, 
Its getting dark. 
Close the windows, 
We might be seen. 
There might be people 
Who are jealous of us; 
There might be people 
Who want to steal our love 
Who want to steal our love, yeah. 

But I won’t let them steal you away from me, 
I hope you won’t let them steal me away from you,
From you. 

Shine, shine, shine in the bright lights, 
Dance, dance, dance, dance around, 
Sing, sing, sing, sing a song for me. 

Turn the the lights out, 
Its getting bright. 
Open the windows, 
We want to see the outside world. 
There might be people 
Who are jealous of us; 
There might be people 
Who want to steal our love 
Who want to steal our love, yeah. 

But I won’t let them steal you away from me, 
I hope you won’t let them steal me away from you, 
From you. 

Shine, shine, shine in the bright lights, 
Dance, dance, dance, dance around, 
Sing, sing, sing, sing a song for me.

The dark, dark, room 
Where I keep on writing 
Songs about you, about you. 
The music pours out of the stereo 
We keep on dancing, keep on dancing. 

Turn the the lights on,
Its getting dark. 
Close the windows, 
We might be seen. 
There might be people 
Who are jealous of us; 
There might be people 
Who want to steal our love 
Who want to steal our love, yeah.

Once Upon a Time

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.

With You

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.

Beating Fast

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.

Fun With You

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.

Butterfly

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

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.
