In between the unimaginable,
We are still humans.
Hiding behind the smiles,
Yet upset to be comforted.

Desiring space by pretending rage,
A saints when naive,
Unpredictable when taken for granted.

Born passionate from the beginning,
A lover of self, nature and all that is to life
We are all that is, will be and hope to be,
We are nature’s bliss.

Growing in between the crevice of our existence,
Blaming our woes to time and neglect,
We are reborn a thousand times by reasons.

Singing in the night by soundless whispers of our conscience,
Dreaming and hoping we make peace with our past, present and future.

We become that we may revived,
Reborn that we may evade the darkness of our past.
Sinking within the two halves of good and evil.
Undauntedly hunted with the thoughts of our fate (deaths).

Grown and ready,
We’re alerted to life’s vicissitude and vagaries.
In all, we remain imperfectly perfect creatures of a supernatural being.
Craving for the true meaning to life and existence.



The silence is long overdue,
In my solitude I have shred it all.
No more long nights of exasperated whispers.
I have been reborn through the fire, and by words
I am refined.

I am, my own greatest foe.
And I am, my own inspiration.
Tossed like the sea waves,
And calm like the ocean tide.
A thought within me and me

Who can understand the mystery of creation? 

Who can predict the events that unfold.

Saddle upon the wheels of time,

We set our voyage on life’s quest as we grow old. 
As the morning sun rises, I behold to become.

Rocking my little cherry cradle, I smile knowing I am welcome. 

For in the darkness that lies beyond my little world, 

I can feel hope in every smile that extend a hand of love.
I can’t say I understand the way things are done,

For in this journey, it all feels we’re all here to sojourn. 

All that matters is, I leave a legacy that will speak of me in thousands years to come.

A life that is full of love and peace as I gracefully blossom. 
Yes, I may be little today, but will one day grow old.

I don’t intend to be another line in the story that is told,

But the protagonist, as my life’s events unfold. 

I believe there’s a space for me, as I am on a mission as pure as gold.

Just like fine wine, 
As fresh as it can be. 
Just like air, 
As needful it can be. 
In-between the realities of this two, 
My love for you is without end.

I can’t say this things loud,
Lest I am misunderstood to be empty. 
I can’t whisper this enchanted words,
For your unopened hands, have kept me bare.

Grant me this undeserved wish, 
And my entirety shall sing of your good graces. 
Give me your heart, 
And I will crown it with loyalty.
For in-between the dreams and realities, 
It’s Just You I need.

Somewhere between “crying loudly to seek attention” and “crying silently to avoid attention”,we grew up!
Somewhere between “craving for pizza” and “craving for home food”,we grew up!
Somewhere between “believing in happy endings” and “accepting the reality”,we grew up!
Somewhere between “broken pencils” and “broken hearts”,we grew up!
Somewhere between “we are Best Friends Forever” and “knowing that nothing truly lasts”,we grew up!
Somewhere between “i want to grow up” and “i want to be a child again”,we grew up!
Somewhere between “parents fulfilling our wish” and “we fulfilling our parents’ wish”,we grew up!
Somewhere between “lets meet and plan” and “lets plan and meet”,we grew up!
Somewhere between “crying out loud just to get what we want” and “holding our tears when we are broken”,we grew up!
And as we grew up,how silently but surely,our lives have changed.

there’s a word,
That best described a life.
Inspires and insights, 
More beautiful than life,
But eats us and stir a deep desire. 
Within which all we can do is aspire.

There’s nothing like it,
The only word that takes us away from 
The craziness within and without. 
The pains it gives, is the joy we get.
The secret it carries, is the smile it wears.
Flows within, and spread without.

There is nothing like “LOVE.”

Love is all that matters.

I want you now or never, 
I need you now, more than ever.
My silence yesterday, has left me sever.
When I thought, I was better,
I realised in you am much more clever.

How will I say this, 
When you have stolen my peace. 
My endless plea, you snob with a hiss. 
How am I to know, loving you is amiss,
When all my heart seeks is a loving kiss.

Should I sing or curse the day we met?
Or do you mistake my words, cause am a poet? 
Spending days without you, my eyes remain wet,
As a confused child, I hopefully wait. 
Who knows, TOMORROW we may wed.
